Week ending 27th January 2013
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!
1. Les Misérables, £4,016,611: Total: £24.618,896
2. Django Unchained, £2,419,846: Total: £7,185,499
3. Lincoln, £1,657,337 (New)
4. Life of Pi, £1,119,570: Total: £25,957,044
5. Zero Dark Thirty, £1,052,845 (New)
6. The Impossible, £1,006,477: Total: £10,777,332
7. Movie 43, £787,648 (New)
8. Monsters, Inc 3D, £703,656: Total: £1,595,962
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!
