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!
