Week ending 16th December 2012
Welcome back the chart! I am back after my absence last week. I do apologise I was away in Cornwall for a couple of days. So back to it then. The number 1 this week has to be The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Finally this long anticipated film has been released! I am yet to see this film but I do hope to soon. Let us crack on with the rest of the chart.
1. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, £11,601,538 (New)
2. Rise of the Guardians, £1,250,469: Total: £5,713,662
3. Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger!, £938,309: Total: £5,582,224
4. Skyfall, £809,406: Total: £97,897,404
5. Tinker Bell and the Secret of the Wings, £528,820 (New)
6. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, £509,872: Total: £34,420,072
7. Seven Psychopaths, £452,293: Total: £2,133,948
8. Silver Linings Playbook, £231,714: Total: £4,104,632
9. Argo, £108,384: Total: £5,153,262
10. Great Expectations, £100,137: Total: £1,730,925
At number 2 we have Rise of the Guardians. Entertaining the children and the rest of the family this Christmas. At number 3 is Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger!. From what I have seen of it, it looks like a decent enough Christmas film! Of course in our chart the film Skyfall is still riding high at number 4. I went to see the film again for a second time the other day. I thoroughly enjoyed it again! At number 5 we have another children’s film, Tinker Bell and the Secret of the Wings. Another spin off film with the character of Tinkerbell first seen in the classic tale and film Peter Pan. At number 6 we have The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 still keeping the audiences coming. Number 7 sees Seven Psychopaths, starring Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken. A dark comedy from the creator of In Bruges. Number 8 sees the film Silver Linings Playbook staying in the top ten. I have heard nothing good reviews about this film. Argo is at number 9. Another good film that people should go see. Number 10 sees Great Expectations probably bringing in the older audience or the Grey Pound as the term has been coined!
I leave you this week wishing you all a very Merry Christmas! I hope there is something for everyone in this chart this week. That is your top ten films for this week. Until next time happy cinema viewing!
