    2. Skyfall, £3,809,893: Total: £89,620,677
    3. Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger!, £1,614,675 (New)
    4. Silver Linings Playbook, £1,260,979(New)
    5. Gambit, £689,042 (New)
    6. Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, £637,130 Total: £21,405,074

    8. Argo, £495,689: Total: £3,869,361

    10. Jab Tak Hai Jaan, £198,671: Total: £1,302,581

We have at number 2, Skyfall, keeping audiences entertained with action and suspense! Number 3 we see a new entry with Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger!, a sequel to the Christmas film Nativity, released in 2009. This time around David Tennant plays twins who are both teachers. One at a posh private school and another at a state school. They both enter a singing competition to come up with a Christmas song. This film will probably do well in the lead up to Christmas. A good family film! Number 4 is a new entry as well with Silver Linings Playbook, starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. The film tells the story of Bradley Cooper’s character coming out of a mental institution and mending his life again. Helping him is a next door neighbour, Jennifer Lawrence’s character, who has also suffered from mental issues. Together they hatch a plan to reunite Bradley Cooper’s character with his estranged wife. Unfortunately not everything goes to plan! Gambit is another new entry at number 5. A remake of a 1960s Michael Caine film. This time around Colin Firth, Cameron Diaz and Alan Rickman star. Colin Firth plays a disgruntled employee of Alan Rickman’s character. He finds a way to get one over on him with the help of Cameron Diaz and a fake painting. Not sure how this film will do. It may be a matter that it gets lost in amongst Skyfall and Twilight. Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted sits strong at number 6. A Jake Gyllenhaal film is new at number 7. End of Watch, tells the story of two cops who do a drug bust and become the most wanted amongst the criminal gangs. Number 8 sees Argo still hanging in the top ten. I highly recommend this film! The Master is at number 9, touted as another Oscar contender along with Argo. The Bollywood film Jab Tak Hai Jaan is at number 10. A good chart this week, a mix of films.

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!

UK Weekly Top 10 Movies!

Week ending 18th November 2012

Finally this week the film Skyfall has been knocked off the top spot! By another epic series of films, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2. All the fans of the series came out to watch the final instalment to conclude the films. Let us see what the rest of the chart has in store for us.

 

  1. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, £15,850,825 (New)
    2. Skyfall, £5,566,537: Total: £82,836,559

    10. Thuppakki, £134,280 (New)

 

Skyfall has fallen to number 2. Audiences still love Bond but it could not hold off the might of Twilight. Number 3 is Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted still entertaining the children; it is mostly the only kid’s film out at the moment. The Divali festival fell during this week’s chart and so there are about three Bollywood films in the chart. The highest one being at number 4, Jak Tak Hai Jaan. It is the story of a man who finds and loses his true love in London. Choosing to become a bomb disposal expert for the Indian Army, ten years later he returns to London after an accident and suffers amnesia. Can he be reunited with his true love? The film Argo is at number 5. I went to see this film and really enjoyed it. I didn’t know much about the political history of the time period the film was set. I left the cinema knowing a bit more about this period in history. Ben Affleck was good in the lead role. George Clooney was Producer. This film may do for Ben Affleck’s career that the film Syriana did for George Clooney’s and secure an Oscar. Number 6 sees the film The Master starring Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix. The story is loosely based upon the leader of the Scientology movement and its beginnings. At number 7, Hotel Transylvania is still scaring and entertaining children. The film Son of Sardaar, another Bollywood is at number 8. The story of a man returning to the family fold and back to the village he grew up, only to be caught up in a long-standing family feud. Number 9 sees Taken 2 drop down the chart but it still hangs in there. At number 10 is the third Bollywood film in the chart, Thuppakki. The story of an Army Captain working to track down and destroy a terrorist gang. To also deactivate the sleepers cells the gang control.

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!
