Well the 2 'Events' cannot be connected, but on the day, (today), that the 'Bohemian Rhapsody'
Soundtrack is in both the World iTunes Top 5 and the European iTunes Top 5, both versions of
'ABBA Gold' have collapsed, in Sales, on both Charts. ABBA have collapsed on iTunes, just as Queen
have had their biggest 'boost' in a very long time.
As regards the UK - we'll see if 'Mamma Mia! 2' can reach as high as No.13 in the UK's 'All Time' Films.
Personally, I doubt if it can rise above No.14, where it currently 'sits'. Its UK takings are now but a tiny
fraction of what they once were. The DVD release is a matter of Weeks away now.
I see that the USA Cinemas are getting a '10th Anniversary Special' of the 1st 'Mamma Mia!' Film. It is just
for 2 days in November. I'm not sure if the rest of the World is getting it. Or if there will be something to
include 'Mamma Mia! 2'. Apparently, the 1st Film is to be shown, plus a Documentary about it. That is what
I've understood, from reading about the plan, anyhow...
