Top Movies in Holland for 2016 (so far)

With two-thirds of the year now complete, the 2016 box-office numbers in Holland show just how much the Dutch like animated (5 of the top ten) and action (3 of the top ten) films, with a small helping of superheros (2 of the top ten). All of the top movies were from Hollywood studios, with the best performing Dutch film (Rokjesdag) only coming in at #15 year-to-date (compared to 2015 when Michiel de Ruiter was among the top ten films at the Dutch box office) .

The biggest surprise has to be the film in 10th place, Alvin & the Chipmunks: The Road Chip. Why? Because it boxed out the year’s biggest Hollywood live-action blockbuster, Captain America: Civil War (currently at #11 for 2016). It is also three spots ahead of another of the year’s key superhero movie, Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice (at #13). In the USA, CACW currently ranks #2 at the boxoffice for 2016 while BvS ranks #6.

Here are the top ten films at the Dutch box office for 2016* (through 10/09/2016):

  1. The Jungle Book
  2. Finding Dory
  3. The Secret Life of Pets
  4. The Revenant
  5. Suicide Squad
  6. Zootopia
  7. Deadpool
  8. Jason Bourne
  9. The Legend of Tarzan
  10. Alvin & the Chipmunks: The Road Chip
