At number three we see Seven Psychopaths, ive heard good things about this movie and wouldn’t mind seeing it myself. Twilight drops to number four, I tried to see this last week with KirkieChick but we ran into some cinema problems. Nativity is still pulling the cinema goers at 5, while at 6 we see the Silver Lining Playbook. Number 7 see’s Great Expectations still hanging on with the older generation enjoying this Dickens classic. Ben Affleck’s Argo is still in the chart at number 8 with End of Watch at 9. last but no means least another family film, which is about to become a stage show Madagascar 3. So there we have it this week chart.

Week ending 2nd December 2012

By Kirkiechick

Welcome back this week! The number 1 in the chart has changed this week. Skyfall has in fact been able to take the top spot from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. So let us see how the rest of the chart fares!

 Skyfall-Poster-Daniel-Craig-406x650

1. Skyfall, £2,275,469: Total: £93,769,331

2. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, £2,180,909: Total: £31,373,440

3. Rise of the Guardians, £1,968,984 (New)

4. Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger!, £1,204,066: Total: £3,165,716

5. Silver Linings Playbook, £749,055: Total: £2,705,416

6. Great Expectations, £544,636 (New)

7. Talaash, £389,522 (New)

8. Argo, £338,545: Total: £4,538,400

9. End of Watch, £306,005: Total: £1,356,870

10. Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, £263,163: Total: £21,755,873

We have a number 2 The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 still bringing in the fans of Twilight. I suspect that some men are being dragged to watch the film by their partners! At number 3 sees a new entry with children’s film, Rise of the Guardians. An evil being threatens the innocence of children around the World; the Immortal Guardians must save them. They consist of the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, Jack Frost and others. Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger! is at number 4, gearing up for Christmas. Number 5 sees the film Silver Linings Playbook. All those Bradley Cooper fans seeing this one! Number 6 is a new entry for a Charles Dickens classic, Great Expectations. I don’t think this was the best time to release this film. There was only an adaptation on BBC1 last Christmas of this story. I think it may quietly slip out of the top ten within a couple of weeks. Number 7 sees a Bollywood film called Talaash. A murder mystery thriller. A famous Indian film star dies in a car crash. A cop investigating meets a sex worker as well as struggling with personal psychological problems. There is a connection between the mystery and these people, which will change their lives. At number 8 is Argo, a wonderful film. I highly recommend. End of Watch is at number 9. This looks like a good cop film. To finish the chart off is Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted at number 10 keeping the children happy!

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 for this week! The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 is still at number 1. This will probably not change until The Hobbit is released on the 13th December. Let us see how the rest of the chart is doing!

movies_twilight_breaking_dawn_2
  1. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, £5,344,598: Total: £26,979,458
    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
    7. End of Watch, £618,546 (New)
    8. Argo, £495,689: Total: £3,869,361
    9. The Master, £201,844: Total: £1,002,270
    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!

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
    3. Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, £966,116: Total: £20,631,608
    4. Jab Tak Hai Jaan, £893,953 (New)
    5. Argo, £807,457: Total: £2,828,888
    6. The Master, £372,360:  Total: £553,521
    7. Hotel Transylvania, £233,959: Total: £7,580,744
    8. Son of Sardaar, £214,296 (New)
    9. Taken 2, £136,495: Total: £23,335,974
    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!

1. Skyfall, £10,447,385: Total: £72,019,129

2. Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, £1,357,193: Total: £19,390,301

3. Argo, £1,287,770 (new)

4. Here Comes the Boom, £443,052 (new)

5. Taken 2, £402,121: Total: £22,994,924

9. Rust and Bone, £154,806: Total: £549,060

10. Paranormal Activity 4, £150,652: Total: £5,834,936

At number 2 we have Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted keeping the children entertained! Number 3 sees a new entry with the latest film from Ben Affleck, Argo is a political story about six American diplomats in 1980, which are caught up in revolutionary Iran, unable to leave. A rescue operation for them is concocted between the CIA and Canada. There has been talk of Oscar nomination for this film already. Number 4 sees the comedy Here Comes the Boom, starring Kevin James as a Biology teacher who turns himself into a mixed-martial arts fighter to raise cash for his school in order for them not to end extra-curricular activities. The film Taken 2 is at number 5 entertaining audiences. Hotel Transylvania is sitting at number 6 for the children. New entry with The Sapphires at number 7. The true story about an Australian Aboriginal girl group who goes to Vietnam to entertain the troops with their Irish manager played by Chris O’Dowd. It looks like a good fun feeling film. I think it’s aimed at the audiences that would like Mamma Mia!.  The film also contains the last film performance for Whitney Houston. Number 8 sees Silent Hill: Revelation keeping audiences scared. The French film Rust and Bone manages to stay in the chart at number 9. Ending the chart at number 10 is Paranormal Activity 4 still creeping people out. Don’t look behind you!

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 cinema goers! The number 1 this week has not changed from last week. It is of course Skyfall. The film is amazing and nods towards other Bond films and is a perfect tribute for the 50th Anniversary. So let us see how the rest of the chart is doing!

1. Skyfall, £16,107,687: Total: £53,440,685

2. Madagascar 3: Europe¹s Most Wanted, £2,863,112: Total: £17,619,560

3. Silent Hill: Revelation, £1,043,068 (new)

4. Hotel Transylvania, £810,821: Total: £6,833,768

9. Frankenweenie, £234,465: Total: £2,115,073

10. Sinister, £180,783:  Total: £6,346,639

At number 2 we have Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted sitting strongly for the tail end of the school half-term. We have a new entry for number 3, a sequel to a 2006 film, Silent Hill. This time around we have Silent Hill: Revelation. Showing in 3D in some cinemas. The film stars Sean Bean again and picks up the story some years on from the original film and strange forces from Silent Hill are pulling our heroes back. Father and daughter are up against evil forces. Number 4 sees Hotel Transylvania staying strong in the chart. It does look like a sweet and funny film and was perfect for Halloween viewing. Taken 2 is at number 5. The film is still keeping audiences entertained with Liam Neeson’s performance of a guy protecting his family. Number 6 sees a new entry with Fun Size, a comedy about a high school girl looking forward to a Halloween party but is stuck babysitting her younger brother. Problems occur when her brother is lost amongst the trick or treaters and with her best friend and two high school nerds helping her find him before her parents find out! Number 7 sees Paranormal Activity 4 still in the chart for Halloween. I went to see the film and I enjoyed it. There were a few new scares that hadn’t been done in the other three Paranormal Activity films. Rust and Bone is at number 8. A French film starring Marion Cotillard as a killer whale trainer who has a terrible accident. Her brother comes to stay and the sibling bond becomes stronger. Frankenweenie is still hanging in the chart at number 9. Closing the chart this week at number 10 is Sinister, still around for Halloween scares! It is worth a watch!

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! 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!

Welcome back to the chart! This week finally Taken 2 has been knocked off the top spot! It seems the love for children’s films and sequels managing to knock Liam Neeson down in the top ten. Let us see how the chart is getting on this week!

1. Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted - £6,030,904 (New)

2.  Paranormal Activity 4 - £2,544,701 (New)
3.  Taken 2 - £2,264,856
4.  Hotel Transylvania - £1,023,722
5.  Looper - £781,211
6.  Frankenweenie - £741,683 (New)
7. Sinister - £711,918
8.  The Perks of Being a Wallflower - £213,091
9.  Beasts of the Southern Wild - £181,801 (New)
10. Brave - £176,827

 

It is the time for the sequels, Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, goes straight in at number 1! It is the third film in the successful series of Madagascar. The zoo animals come alive and are still trying to get back home after being shipped across the world and crashing onto an island. This time around they make friends with Circus animals. There are some very catchy songs that will get stuck in your head for days after! (Afro Circus, Afro Circus…Polka, Polka, Polka dot Afro Circus!) Number 2 sees the fourth instalment in the Paranormal Activity series of films. I like these films. I enjoy scary films and I am looking forward to seeing this for myself and how they can do different scares from the other films in the series. Taken 2 drops down to number 3. It is still pulling in audiences but this has dropped down and will tail off soon enough. Hotel Transylvania is still bringing in the audience at number 4. From what I have heard from people who have seen it, they have enjoyed it and thought it was a funny film even for adults. Looper is holding its ground in the chart at number 5. I thoroughly recommend that people catch this film while they can. Frankenweenie goes straight in at number 6. This to me seems a bit of a disappointing position for a Tim Burton film. Possibly this film is attracting more of the diehard Tim Burton fans. Time will tell if this film can build up momentum and gain audiences. Number 7 sees Sinister still scaring people. It is worth a watch and may make you want to sleep with the lights on that night! The Perks of Being a Wallflower is at number 8. Please go see! Number 9 sees a new entry with a film that is already getting Oscar buzz, Beasts of the Southern Wild is the story of a little girl and her Dad in a fictional village at the mercy of the river surrounding it. It is one of those life struggle films. Number 10 sees Brave re-entering the chart this week, probably with the help of being shown at special weekend showings in certain cinema chains.

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!
