Week ending 10th February 2013
Welcome back to the film chart for this week! We have a new entry this week! Les Miserables has been knocked off the top spot! In its place we have what could become a classic children’s film, Wreck-It Ralph. Released for the half-term holidays to entertain the children. The story of a baddie computer character who decides that he isn’t the bad guy and does not want to be that anymore. He decides to game jump to become the hero! Let us see the rest of the chart for this week.
1. Wreck-It Ralph, £4,526,380 (New)
2. Les Misérables, £1,640,857: Total: £33,456,340
3. I Give It a Year, £1,450,023 (New)
4. Django Unchained, £1,073,775: Total: £12,407,764
5. Flight, £925,049: Total: £3,186,967
6. Warm Bodies, £895,509 (New)
7. Lincoln, £809,196: Total: £5,916,579
8. Hitchcock, £606,817 (New)
9. Life of Pi, £462,559: Total: £28,098,112
10. The Impossible, £351,193: Total: £12,751,395
At number 2 we have Les Miserables still making audiences cry. I know of people who have gone to see the film several times. I think this film will be in cinemas for awhile yet. Number 3 is a new entry with I Give It a Year, a comedy about a couple who marry within a year of meeting each other, set off on married life. It seems they are struggling in their first few months of marriage and go to counselling, will their love survive? At number 4 we have Django Unchained, a brilliant film and not for the faint hearted or the easy offended. Quentin Tarantino has made another classic film! At number 5 is Flight. A human emotion story that will tug at the heart strings. Number 6 is a new entry with Warm Bodies. This film can be described as a zombie rom-com. I saw this film this week. I enjoyed it. It was funny and an easy watch. Number 7 is Lincoln, bringing out the older generation for this film. It did win the Best Leading Actor Bafta at the weekend for Daniel Day-Lewis. Number 8 is a new entry with Hitchcock, the story behind Alfred Hitchcock’s film Psycho from the 1960s. The film has quite a cast with Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren and Scarlett Johansson. At number 9 we have Life of Pi still sitting strong in the cinemas after two months. I really recommend this film. At number 10 we have The Impossible, another film which has been in the cinemas for awhile. Some scenes have disturbed audience members, some have even been sick or fainted. This may be a film to watch a home when it comes out on DVD and not in the cinema.
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!
