UK Weekly Top 10 Movies!

 Week ending 28th October 2012

Hello there! It was inevitable this week that the chart would change! The release of the 23rd official Bond film obviously would knock off Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted. Early indications are that the Bond film is breaking box office records for this year! Let us get to the chart!

1. Skyfall - £20,180,369
2.  Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted - £2,803,874
3.  Taken 2 - £1,004,463
4.  Paranormal Activity 4 - £792,342
5.  Hotel Transylvania - £782,340
6.  Sinister - £310,408
7.  Frankenweenie - £274,780
8.  Looper - £221,768
9.  Beasts of the Southern Wild - £117,972
10.  Ice Age: Continental Drift - £102,952

We have at number one, Skyfall. I was wise enough to pre-book my tickets rather than just turn up and chance my luck of getting a ticket and let alone a good seat. I do recommend buying your tickets for this film in advance! I thoroughly enjoyed the film and I highly recommend. I managed to avoid as much as I could about the plot. I am glad I did. So I won’t give anything away! In second place this week the favourite of last week dropped down. Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted. It is still a popular children’s film as there aren’t many released this half-term against Bond. Taken 2 is staying steady in the chart with audiences at number three. Paranormal Activity 4 is at number four still scaring audiences! Number five sees Hotel Transylvania creeping out children for this half-term and Halloween! Sinister is still in the chart at number six, freaking out the adults! Frankenweenie is keeping children entertained at number seven. I still don’t think Tim Burton will gain the same audiences with this film like his has with The Nightmare Before Christmas. Frankenweenie could become more popular on DVD. Looper is staying steady at number 8. Please go see before it leaves the cinema! The art house type film Beasts of the Southern Wild stays in the same position from last week, number nine. A re-entry is Ice Age: Continental Drift, at number ten due to being shown over half-term in some cinemas.

Check out Bond, Skyfall most definitely! The sooner the better! Or wait a couple of weeks but don’t wait too long! See the film in IMAX is you can. It is a better experience, plus it is the first Bond film released in IMAX format and in its 50th Anniversary year!

  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!

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!
