UK Weekly Top 10 Movies!

Week ending 9th September 2012

By Kirkiechick

Welcome back to the top ten weekly film chart. This week has been slow again for cinema attendance. It has been the turn of more adult films being released with the top ten being dominated by two 18 rated films. This is a rarity as not many films are rated 18 nowadays. As the film companies would rather go for lower rated films for release as this will get bums on seats in cinemas. Let us see the chart:

 

1. Dredd, £1,049,345 (New)

2. Lawless, £973,234 (New)

3. Anna Karenina, £875,702 (New)

4. Total Recall, £675,280: Total: £4,075,574

5. Brave, £649,057: Total: £19,344,823

6. The Possession, £533,334: Total: £2,150,064

7. Ted, £479,943: Total: £29,191,321

8. The Dark Knight Rises, £352,587: Total: £55,312,954

9. The Watch, £338,184: Total: £3,162,291

10. The Bourne Legacy, £270,180: Total: £10,569,592

We have another remake film which has hit the top spot; Dredd comes in at number one. This is yet again another release in 3D and also 2D. This version of a police enforced led society is quite violent and a remake of a 1990s Sylvester Stallone film. It seems recent remakes have been quite high in the film charts lately. In at number 2 is the 1920s set gangster film Lawless. Starring Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf and Guy Pearce. This film is another 18 rated film. So it seems audiences are loving violent stories this week! Number 3 is a much quieter affair with the film Anna Karenina. A version of a novel by the Russian author Tolstoy. It is a period drama from the director Joe Wright who has done Atonement and Pride and Prejudice. It is a film to take your Mum to! Total Recall drops down to number 4. Brave is sitting steady at number 5. This is not surprising as there are not many children’s films released at the moment. Audiences are still being scared with The Possession at number 6. Ted is still making audiences laugh with its adult humour. The Dark Knight Rises stays in the top ten at number 8; it is slowly slipping out of the chart as people try to catch it before it leaves cinemas.  The Watch is hanging in there at number 9. For spy lovers The Bourne Legacy is number 10, another action packed film.

Catch you next week. Until then happy cinema viewing!

UK Weekly Top 10 Movies!

 By Kirkiechick

I am back again with the weekly UK Cinema Chart for the week beginning 27th August 2012. This week has been a slow week. In the cinema industry this week is seen as one of the slowest weeks of the year for releases, the first week after the summer period ending. So let us see which films were buzzing this week:

1. Total Recall, £2,493,230 (New)

2. The Watch, £2,235,933 (New)

3. Brave, £1,604,163 :Total : £17,940,622

4. Ted, £990,842: Total: £28,122,651

5. The Possession, £979,192 (New)

6. The Dark Knight Rises, £759,838: Total: £54,535,548

7. The Bourne Legacy, £714,020: Total: £9,895,086

8. The Expendables 2, £376,319: Total: £5,546,276

9. Keith Lemon: The Film, £370,735: Total: £2,531,902

10. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days, £287,969: Total: £7,086,728

Brave has been knocked off the top spot with new release and remake film, Total Recall gets the top spot. The film has also been released in IMAX. This has most probably helped the film get the top spot this week. It is a fast paced action film. I went to see it without seeing the original version. I felt this was best because I could view this version as separate. I do recommend the film but it did feel like the film was lacking from some plot points. In second place is the new Ben Stiller comedy, The Watch. On first glance the film seems like a silly comedy about a group of guys forming a neighbourhood watch group only to discover they have to protect the neighbourhood not just from crime. Brave drops down to number 3. Ted is still doing well at number 4. The Possession is a new entry at number 5. A jumpy horror film keeping audiences on the edge of their seats. The Dark Knight Rises is still staying in the top ten at number 6. The Bourne Legacy is still bringing in audiences at number 7. The Expendables 2 is still explosive fun at number 8. Keith Lemon: The Film has dropped down to number 9. This film will probably drop out the top ten next week as audiences seem to be bored of the persona that is Keith Lemon. Closing the top ten is Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days.

I hope you guys check out Total Recall and The Possession this week. I highly recommend them. 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
