UK Weekly Top 10 Moives!

Week ending 10th March 2013

By Kirkiechick

 

Hello there! Welcome to the chart for this week! We have a new number 1 this week. It is Oz the Great and Powerful, classed as a prequel to the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz. This new film tells the story of how a magician ends up in the World of Oz and has to defeat the Wicked Witch. This film looks amazing visually. I am so looking forward to this film! Let us see how the rest of the film chart has done this week.

 

oz-the-great-and-powerful-banner-poster

1. Oz the Great and Powerful, £3,712,948  (New)

2. Side Effects, £904,746 (New)

3. Wreck-It Ralph, £744,683: Total: £21,459,657

4. Parker, £568,777 (New)

5. Mama, £525,672: Total: £4,530,295

6. Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, £507,759: Total: £2,651,393

7. The Guilt Trip, £432,068 (New)

8. Safe Haven, £407,293: Total: £1,689,566

9. A Good Day to Die Hard, £342,415: Total: £10,401,957

10. Les Misérables, £293,893: Total: £39,552,600

 

At number 2 we have a new entry with the film Side Effects. The director Steven Soderbergh has said this film is his swansong. It is the story of a woman whose husband has come out of prison but unfortunately she starts to feel anxious and can’t sleep at night. She goes to a doctor and therapist after an incident involving her car and a brick wall. She tries several drugs and after trying a new one, a tragic event happens. Is it because of the side effects of the drug? I went to see this film. I really I enjoyed it. It is many different types of a film, a thriller, drama or the story of drug exploitation by the medical profession. At number 3 is Wreck-It Ralph, still riding high in the chart. It is a good film and I thoroughly recommend for adults and children alike! At number 4 is a new entry with the film Parker. It is a Jason Statham film. The premise is a thief has been double crossed in the past and believed dead. He comes back with a new identity to seek revenge from his old crew and to steal their latest loot. At number 5 we have Mama. It is a jumpy film. I recommend because you think it is a scary film but it will lead you down a different path. You can see that Del Toro, the director of Pans Labyrinth has had an influence over this film. At number 6 we have Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. This looks like an easy watch, lots of action and eye candy. Number 7 is a new entry with The Guilt Trip. A mother and son road trip with Barbra Streisand and Seth Rogen. I went to see this film and I found it sweet and funny in places. At number 8 is Safe Haven, a film for those romantics that believe love will save the day. At number 9 is A Good Day to Die Hard, the action film with Bruce Willis still bringing in the audiences. At number 10 is Les Miserables is still holding in the chart. People are trying to catch this film while it is still in cinemas.

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!

Hello and welcome to the chart for this week! We have a new number 1. Wreck-It Ralph has been knocked off the top spot by Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. The story of what happened after the traditional tale of Hansel and Gretel escaping from the evil Witch trying to kill them have grown up. They have become Witch hunters. This film can be seen in IMAX 3D. Let us see the rest of the chart.

Hansel___Gretel__Witch_Hunters_5

1. Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, £1,502,782 (New)

2. Wreck-It Ralph, £1,402,000: Total: £20,432,173

3. Mama, £1,066,008: Total: £3,484,674

4. A Good Day to Die Hard, £823,723: Total: £9,711,292

5. Safe Haven, £812,460 (New)

6. Les Misérables, £503,161: Total: £38,884,766

7. Broken City, £499,283 (New)

8. Argo, £408,903: Total: £7,065,703

9. Arbitrage, £402,873 (New)

10. Stoker, £367,509 (New)

At number 2 we have Wreck-It Ralph keeping the children entertained. It is such a good film and not just for children there is something for the adults too. At number 3 we have Mama. A jumpy horror by the sounds of it. Two children found in an abandoned cabin by their Uncle after their father kills their mother, but something sinister has come back with them. At number 4 we have A Good Day to Die Hard, still entertaining the Die Hard fans with action and explosions. At number 5 we have a new entry with Safe Haven, the story of a woman on the run and goes to a sleepy town for refuge. She finds a man but is all her troubles behind her? This story is based on a Nicholas Sparks book, so romance is on the cards. At number 6 we have Les Miserables, still bringing in the audiences. Take your tissues with you. At number 7 we have Broken City, a new entry. Mark Wahlberg plays a private investigator hired by a political figure, Russell Crowe to follow his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones. But is the truth what it seems? At number 8 we have a re-entry in the chart, Argo. Due to the film winning an Oscar some cinemas have been showing the film again. I do recommend you check it out. At number 9 we have Arbitrage, a new entry. Starring Richard Gere and Susan Sarandon, a financial magnate in the middle of trying to sell his real estate business makes a mistake and turns to an unlikely source of help. At number 10 we have Stoker. From the look of the trailer it is a very stylistic film about the nurturing of a young woman when a mysterious Uncle comes to stay after the death of her father.

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!

10. Beautiful Creatures, £398,401: Total: £2,170,260

 

At number 2 we have A Good Day to Die Hard. It is a good film if you just want mindless action and not much story. It is a Die Hard film what are you expecting? At number 3 we have a new entry with Mama. A scary film telling the story of two children who go missing on the day that their father kills their mother. Their Uncle spends five years looking for them. They are found in a cabin in the woods, but have they brought something back with them? At number 4 is Les Miserables still bringing in audiences. Best to have your hanky ready! At number 5 we have I Give It a Year. The British romantic comedy is making people laugh with its unconventional type of love story. Number 6 is a new entry with Cloud Atlas. I really enjoyed this film. It took a while to get used to the storyline jumping back and forth across centuries. A visually amazing film. At number 7 is This is 40. It seems this sort of sequel to Knocked Up hasn’t done as well as the predecessor. We have Song for Marion at number 8. This is a film for the Grey Pound, unfortunately not doing as good as previous films like Quartet this year and Exotic Marigold Hotel last year. At number 9 we have Django Unchained. Still bringing in audiences with its different take on a western. At number 10 we have Beautiful Creatures for the teens and fantasy lovers.

 

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!

Hello there! Welcome back to the chart for this week. The children’s current favourite film Wreck- It Ralph got toppled by one of the big Valentine’s films, A Good Day to Die Hard. The fifth instalment for the Die Hard films brings into the mix the wayward son of Jon McClane. Let us see the rest of the chart for this week.

 Good Day To Die Hard 5 film 2013 movie poster large

1. A Good Day to Die Hard, £4,551,116 (New)

2. Wreck-It Ralph, £3,436,400: Total: £10,516,665

3. This Is 40, £1,229,352 (New)

4. Les Misérables, £1,126,168: Total: £35,968,027

10. Flight, £472,983: Total: £4,181,690

 

At number 2 we have Wreck-It Ralph appealing to the adults and children. It does look like a fun family film. This is 40 is at number 3. Touted as the sort of sequel to Knocked Up. This film tells the story of two of the characters first seen in Knocked Up. They have reached the age of 40 and life is full of children and trying to grab me time away from the spouse! The film was released for Valentine’s Day, which meant many couples went to see this! At number 4 we have Les Miserables still bringing the audiences in. I suggest you catch the film before it leaves the cinema. We have a new entry at number 5, Beautiful Creatures. It is the season of the witch. Some critics have touted this as the next Twilight series. Fans of the Beautiful Creatures book series would deny this! The film tells the story of a girl approaching sixteen who is a Witch. She will be chosen for the light or the dark. She has fallen in love with a boy and this impending doom endangers them. At number 6 we have I Give It a Year, a British comedy about marriage. Number 7 we have Django Unchained still pulling in the audiences. A brilliant film from Tarantino. Number 8 is a new entry with Sammy’s Great Escape, a children’s film about the story of two turtles setting out on a journey to rescue their Grandparent turtles from a zoo. Lincoln is at number 9. The film does look like an amazing historical tale of President Lincoln. At number 10 we have Flight, an emotional charged film about the amazing feat of one man which is shadowed by his personal demons.

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!

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)

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!

At number 2 is Django Unchained. I went to see this film last week. It was an amazing film. It was quite violent and not for the faint hearted. I do recommend you check it out. At number 3 is a new entry with Flight. Starring Denzel Washington as a Commercial Pilot who lands his plane after technical problems. Investigations in the crash bring up other issues. This film is a human interest story. At number 4 is Lincoln. The film is nominated for many awards. Go watch this if you want to watch a historical film. Number 5 sees Life of Pi still hanging in the chart. It is a wonderful film. The Impossible is at number 6. In places the film is uncomfortable to watch. At number 7 is Zero Dark Thirty. It is a long film and contains a lot of scenes of torture. At number 8 is Monsters, Inc 3D. A lot of people are thinking this is the sequel to the first one, when in fact it is the first film re-released in 3D. Number 9 sees a new entry with Bullet to the Head. Starring Sylvester Stallone as a hitman who tries to get retribution for the death of his partner. At number 10 is Movie 43. From the audience who are coming out of watching this film there are no words to describe it. Apparently a really bad film!

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!

Welcome back to the chart! Snow has melted away from most of Britain by the end of this week. This meant that the cinema audiences ventured out again. Les Miserables is still at the top spot of the chart! I finally got to see the film and it was very emotional. If you don’t like musicals then this film isn’t for you! Let us see the rest of the chart!

At number 2 is Django Unchained. Tarantino has done it again. He has wowed audiences with his own style of film. Number 3 is a new entry with Lincoln, Daniel Day-Lewis plays the American President during the time of the American Civil War. A period piece for Steven Spielberg and nominated for 12 Oscars. Number 4 sees Life of Pi sitting strong in the chart. It is an amazing film! Number 5 is a new entry. Zero Dark Thirty comes from the director of The Hurt Locker. This new entry tells the story of the ten year hunt for Osama Bin Laden and the capture of him. At number 6 is The Impossible. Not for the faint hearted as some scenes are quite graphic. Number 7 is a new entry with Movie 43. A series of short films starring some big names in Hollywood. A loose storyline of a producer pitching ideas for a film. Apparently quite rude and crude. Number 8 sees the re-release of Monsters, Inc 3D. Number 9 sees The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey still in the chart. Number 10 is a new entry and a comeback for Arnold Schwarzenegger, The Last Stand. A drug leader breaks out of jail and races to the Mexican border where a sheriff and his rookie staff are the only ones which stand in his way.

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!

Hello there! This week’s chart and the progress of films have been hampered by the bad weather. Snow falling over parts of Britain last Friday caused disruption. I know where I am some of the cinemas didn’t open and some closed early. It was amazing to see people still turning up to watch films when they had been advised to not undertake unnecessary travel. I guess going to the cinema was necessary travel for some! On to the chart now, the top spot still sees the film Les Miserables sitting strong. Let us see the rest of the chart!

 les-mis-poster_hugh-jackman

1. Les Misérables, £4,406,828: Total: £17,360,303

2. Django Unchained, £2,801,312 (New)

3. Life of Pi, £1,201,163: Total: £24,147,499

4. The Impossible, £1,092,754: Total: £9,118,833

5. Gangster Squad, £791,799: Total: £3,890,342

6. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, £765,437: Total: £49,997,203

7. Monsters, Inc 3D, £681,247 (New)

8. Quartet, £335,518: Total: £5,904,503

9. Jack Reacher, £212,540: Total: £9,126,695

10. Parental Guidance, £206,060: Total: £4,224,758

At number 2 we have a new entry from the director Quentin Tarantino. Django Unchained is the new offering from him. It has a stellar cast and sees Leonardo Dicaprio as a nasty character, which is a change for him. It is the story of a slave, Django (the D is silent) who is freed and hired as a bounty hunter. He sets off to free his wife from slavery. At number 3 is Life of Pi. The film is amazing! Please everyone go see this film. Number 4 is The Impossible. Tissues at the ready for this human interest story. Gangster Squad is at number 5. I went to see this. I really enjoyed it. There were a few plot holes and I think they were a bit economical with the historic truth for the conclusion of the film. Number 6 is The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey still sitting strong. At number 7 is Monsters, Inc 3D. A re-release of the original Pixar film but in 3D. The sequel is out in the summer. There aren’t many children’s films out at the moment. At number 8 is Quartet for the older generation! Tom Cruise is still bringing the audiences in with Jack Reacher at number 9. Number 10 is Parental Guidance, which I think is doing well due to lack of other children’s films out on release.

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!

Hello there and welcome back to the chart this week! There has been a change in the top spot! A new entry with the long anticipated film version of one of the top London West End shows, Les Miserables. The film has an all star cast all chosen for their singing talent and not their name. Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried. It is the story set during the French Revolution. It has a mixture of drama, music and love. It was this film which finally knocked off The Hobbit An Unexpected Journey from the top spot. Let us see what the rest of the chart brings.

LMB_31_5_Promo_4C_4F.indd

1. Les Misérables, £8.12m (New)

2. Life of Pi, £2.33m: Total: £21.92m

3. Gangster Squad, £2.09m (New)

4. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, £1.86m: Total: £48.49m

5. The Impossible, £1.86m: Total: £7.15m

6. Texas Chainsaw 3D, £1.25m (New)

7. Quartet, £891,829: Total: £4.72m

8. Jack Reacher, £690,043: Total: £8.61m

9. Pitch Perfect, £453,205: Total: £5.78m

10. Parental Guidance, £401,627: Total: £3.98m

At number 2 is Life of Pi. I finally got to watch this film in 3D. It was visually amazing! The story was so moving and sentimental and made you think. I recommend that people catch this before it leaves the cinema. At number 3 is a new entry with Gangster Squad. A film which was put back for its release and should have been out in October 2012. The reason for the delay was the Denver Shootings in July 2012. The film is based around the real life mobster Mickey Cohen; in 1949 a group of Police decide to go solo to bring down this mobster who is controlling Los Angeles. We have The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey at number 4. It is an amazing film! Number 5 sees The Impossible bringing in the audiences with this true story of survival. Number 6 is a new entry with Texas Chainsaw 3D, it is a sequel to the remake; The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006) of the original The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974). So as an audience we are to forget all about the sequels which were for the original 1974 film. Got it? At number 7 we have Quartet bringing in the “Grey Pound” audience! Number 8 sees Jack Reacher still in the chart. People still love Tom Cruise. At number 9 is Pitch Perfect. I went to see this film and it turned out to be funnier than I thought it would be. It is a light hearted film which would put a smile on your face! At number 10 is Parental Guidance. The Grandparents are left with the children. Disaster ensues!

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!
