UK Weekly Top 10 Movies!
Week ending 9th September 2012
Welcome back to the top ten weekly film chart. This week has been slow again for cinema attendance. It has been the turn of more adult films being released with the top ten being dominated by two 18 rated films. This is a rarity as not many films are rated 18 nowadays. As the film companies would rather go for lower rated films for release as this will get bums on seats in cinemas. Let us see the chart:
1. Dredd, £1,049,345 (New)
2. Lawless, £973,234 (New)
3. Anna Karenina, £875,702 (New)
4. Total Recall, £675,280: Total: £4,075,574
5. Brave, £649,057: Total: £19,344,823
6. The Possession, £533,334: Total: £2,150,064
7. Ted, £479,943: Total: £29,191,321
8. The Dark Knight Rises, £352,587: Total: £55,312,954
9. The Watch, £338,184: Total: £3,162,291
10. The Bourne Legacy, £270,180: Total: £10,569,592
We have another remake film which has hit the top spot; Dredd comes in at number one. This is yet again another release in 3D and also 2D. This version of a police enforced led society is quite violent and a remake of a 1990s Sylvester Stallone film. It seems recent remakes have been quite high in the film charts lately. In at number 2 is the 1920s set gangster film Lawless. Starring Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf and Guy Pearce. This film is another 18 rated film. So it seems audiences are loving violent stories this week! Number 3 is a much quieter affair with the film Anna Karenina. A version of a novel by the Russian author Tolstoy. It is a period drama from the director Joe Wright who has done Atonement and Pride and Prejudice. It is a film to take your Mum to! Total Recall drops down to number 4. Brave is sitting steady at number 5. This is not surprising as there are not many children’s films released at the moment. Audiences are still being scared with The Possession at number 6. Ted is still making audiences laugh with its adult humour. The Dark Knight Rises stays in the top ten at number 8; it is slowly slipping out of the chart as people try to catch it before it leaves cinemas. The Watch is hanging in there at number 9. For spy lovers The Bourne Legacy is number 10, another action packed film.
Catch you next week. Until then happy cinema viewing!
