UK Weekly Top 10 Movies!

 By Kirkiechick

I am back again with the weekly UK Cinema Chart for the week beginning 27th August 2012. This week has been a slow week. In the cinema industry this week is seen as one of the slowest weeks of the year for releases, the first week after the summer period ending. So let us see which films were buzzing this week:

1. Total Recall, £2,493,230 (New)

2. The Watch, £2,235,933 (New)

3. Brave, £1,604,163 :Total : £17,940,622

4. Ted, £990,842: Total: £28,122,651

5. The Possession, £979,192 (New)

6. The Dark Knight Rises, £759,838: Total: £54,535,548

7. The Bourne Legacy, £714,020: Total: £9,895,086

8. The Expendables 2, £376,319: Total: £5,546,276

9. Keith Lemon: The Film, £370,735: Total: £2,531,902

10. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days, £287,969: Total: £7,086,728

Brave has been knocked off the top spot with new release and remake film, Total Recall gets the top spot. The film has also been released in IMAX. This has most probably helped the film get the top spot this week. It is a fast paced action film. I went to see it without seeing the original version. I felt this was best because I could view this version as separate. I do recommend the film but it did feel like the film was lacking from some plot points. In second place is the new Ben Stiller comedy, The Watch. On first glance the film seems like a silly comedy about a group of guys forming a neighbourhood watch group only to discover they have to protect the neighbourhood not just from crime. Brave drops down to number 3. Ted is still doing well at number 4. The Possession is a new entry at number 5. A jumpy horror film keeping audiences on the edge of their seats. The Dark Knight Rises is still staying in the top ten at number 6. The Bourne Legacy is still bringing in audiences at number 7. The Expendables 2 is still explosive fun at number 8. Keith Lemon: The Film has dropped down to number 9. This film will probably drop out the top ten next week as audiences seem to be bored of the persona that is Keith Lemon. Closing the top ten is Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days.

I hope you guys check out Total Recall and The Possession this week. I highly recommend them. Until next time happy cinema viewing.

I am back with the Film Chart. There have been a couple of new releases but Brave is still number one. Ted is sitting comfortably at number 2.

 

1. Brave, £2,371,691: Total: £13,259,610

2. Ted, £1,692,883: Total: £25,620,707

3. The Bourne Legacy, £1,596,289: Total: £7,828,435

4. The Dark Knight Rises, £1,378,717: Total: £52,534,102

5. Keith Lemon: The Film, £1,196,310 (New)

6. The Expendables 2, £1,028,904: Total: £4,316,173

7. The Three Stooges, £509,324 (New)

8. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days, £424,206: Total: £6,217,366

9. Ice Age 4: Continental Drift, £331,851: Total: £28,381,351

10. The Imposter, £252,170 (New)

The Bourne Legacy is in third place. The Dark Knight Rises sits at number 4 and is still strong in the chart. I don’t think this film will be leaving the Top Ten for awhile yet. Number 5 sees a new entry with Keith Lemon: The Film. This has surprised me as reports are people have been walking out before the end saying how terrible the film was. I think we may see a sudden dip for this film in next week’s chart. The Expendables 2 is comfortably making money. The Three Stooges is a slapstick comedy for the family, a reinventing of a comedy act from decades gone by. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days and Ice Age 4 stay in the top ten as the school holidays near the end. The Imposter is a documentary about a 16 year old boy from Texas who went missing, appears three years later in Spain. Is he really the missing boy? I believe this film has been an unexpected hit and has appeared at many film festivals this year.

Until next time, enjoy your film watching

Welcome to the weekly cinema chart. All you need to know what is hitting big at the Cinema. This summer has been dominated by the blockbuster that is Batman: The Dark Knight Rises. What film will it take to beat it off the top spot?  Here is the chart up to Sunday 19th August 2012:

1. Brave, £5,269,402 : Total: £8,270,546

2. The Bourne Legacy, £4,620,289  (New)

3. Ted, £2,076,04:. Total: £22,186,549

4. The Expendables 2, £1,985,082 (New)

5. The Dark Knight Rises, £1,506,178: Total: £49,776,391

6. Ek Tha Tiger, £543,073  (New)

6. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days, £459,526: Total: £5,229,266

8. Ice Age 4: Continental Drift, £350,788 :Total: £27,603,587

9. Step Up 4: Miami Heat, £340,072: Total: £1,797,048

10. The Wedding Video, £333,079  (New)

There are some children’s films in the Top Ten for this week. Brave is the story of a young Scottish girl living in the Highlands and wishes to be a warrior. It is a Disney Pixar film so is expected to do well. Both this and The Bourne Legacy were released on a Monday, which is unusual for films. I believe distributors wanted to maximise the summer holiday audience. Ted is staying strong despite dropping to third place. The Expendables 2 has gone straight into fourth place. An action film for the summer. Batman is sitting at fifth place. This week a Bollywood film proved popular, with Eid being celebrated. Then it is the turn of the sequels for Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Ice Age and Step Up. They should keep the kids entertained!  The Wedding Video is a British comedy about a man wanting to film his brother’s wedding and gives it to him and his bride as a present. What could possibly go wrong! Filled with a host of TV comedy actors, I’m sure it will raise a smile or two!

See you next week for more Top Ten Films!
