The Sweeney has knocked Dredd off the top spot after just one week. Another British film and a remake of a television series from the 1970s. Early reports from audiences say that the film does feel like a long extended television drama. The director Nick Love is known for The Football Factory and The Firm. In second place is the children’s film, ParaNorman, about a kid who has to thwart a Zombie attack in his town. It is from the makers of Coraline, which was very popular when it was released. I think ParaNorman is also for the adults aswell due to the references to 1980s horror films. Staying steady in third place is Anna Karenina. The older generation loves this film. I have seen it and it isn’t your usual period drama, the director chooses a theatrical setting with changing scenery around the actors. Four people walked out in the viewing I was in. In at number 4 is Lawless, which has dropped down. Dredd also drops down to number 5. I went to see this film, I enjoyed it. Very violent and I flinched a couple of times during the viewing. Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones are bringing audiences in with Hope Springs, a comedy drama about a middle aged married couple going for marriage counselling. Steve Carell stars as the marriage counsellor. Brave is still hanging in the top ten. Total Recall is bringing in audiences still. The Possession is still scaring audience goers. Hanging still to the top ten is the comedy Ted. This has been the comedy of the summer and people should catch it if they still can.
That’s it for this week. Until next time happy cinema viewing!
