It was a year of music based movies that dominated the box offices in Croatia in 2018. Two of the top three most watched films at the cinemas across the country in 2018 were based around the music industry. Bohemian Rhapsody sold the most cinema tickets in 2018 (194,497) followed by The Grinch (156,785) and A Star Is Born in third position (132,153 tickets) according to information from Continental Films.
The total number of tickets sold for cinemas up and down Croatia was 4.7 million, which is slightly upon 2017 when 4.6 million were sold.
However, 2018 won’t be remembered as a great year for Croatian movies. Tickets sold for Croatian produced movies were considerably down last year when compared with 2017, this was mainly due to the fact that the number of home-grown films made dropped last year to only seven, whilst in 2017 16 were released. The biggest hit at the box office in 2018 was The Eighth Commissioner (31,828 admissions) followed by Comic sans (14,030 admissions).
