Taken 2 comes straight in at number 1. It is a sequel to Taken, starring Liam Neeson as an ex CIA agent whose daughter gets kidnapped by an Eastern gang using girls in the sex trade. The first one was very violent and a 15, this sequel has a lower age rating of a 12A so families can go. I’m personally disappointed for the lower rating and feel that there should be more violence. The story this time around shows there is a consequence to Neeson’s character killing all the men he did in the first one. At number 2 we have Looper dropping from the top spot of last week. I went to see this film and thoroughly enjoyed the time travelling tale. I recommend! Sinister comes straight in at number 3. A jumpy horror from the makers of Insidious and Paranormal Activity, starring Ethan Hawke as a writer who moves into a house whilst he is writing a horror story and discovers a terrifying secret. Number 4 sees the teen drama The Perks of Being a Wallflower, starring Emma Watson from Harry Potter fame. ParaNorman is at number 5, one of the few children’s films out at the moment. It is such a heart warming film, go see! Will Ferrell comedy The Campaign drops slightly in the chart to number 6. This comedy hasn’t been as successful as other Will Ferrell comedies. Brave is still in the chart at number 7 and has been in the top ten for a consecutive ten weeks. Resident Evil: Retribution has dropped considerably down from last week’s third position to number 8. Apparently it seems that this film in the Resident Evil series isn’t interesting fans and audiences. The French film Untouchable goes up a place from last week to number 9. At number 10 Hope Springs still hangs in there in the chart. The older generation is keeping the film in there.
That’s it for the chart this week. Until next time happy cinema viewing!
