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

5. Beautiful Creatures, £1,109,167 (New)

9. Lincoln, £483,397: Total: £6,964,023

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)

2. Les Misérables, £1,640,857: Total: £33,456,340

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!

9. Bullet to the Head, £429,317 (New)

10. Movie 43, £396,833: Total: £1,581,864

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!

Les-Miserables-Multi-Character-Movie-Poster-Large

1. Les Misérables, £4,016,611: Total: £24.618,896

2. Django Unchained, £2,419,846: Total: £7,185,499

9. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, £623,889: Total: £51,020,811

10. The Last Stand, £538,867 (New)

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!
