Week ending 6th January 2013
Hello and welcome to the New Year and this week’s chart. The top spot has not moved and is still The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. I finally got to see the film last week. I really enjoyed the film. It was long at nearly three hours but worth the watch. Let’s see the rest of the chart!
1. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, £4,075,781: Total: £44,870,320
2. The Impossible, £4,034,470 (New)
3. Life of Pi, £3,353,579: Total: £17,857,428
4. Quartet, £2,294,917 (New)
5. Jack Reacher, £1,682,561: Total: £7,160,319
6. Pitch Perfect, £917,135: Total: £4,928,013
7. Parental Guidance, £884,319: Total: £3,371,022
8. Rise of the Guardians, £725,281: Total: £11,247,265
9. Skyfall, £541,401: Total: £101,572,493
10. Tinkerbell and the Secret of the Wings, £516,952: Total: £3,375,684
At number 2 we have a new entry in the form of The Impossible. A film based on the true life events of the 2004 Tsunami, following the tale of a family separated and their journey back to each other. The film stars Ewan MacGregor and Naomi Watts. At number 3 we have Life of Pi still going strong. I do recommend this film for the visuals alone. Number 4 is a new entry with Quartet, a film for the “Grey Pound” audiences (the older generation). This film has an amazing cast, Maggie Smith, Billy Connolly and Pauline Collins. The film is also the first film to be directed by Dustin Hoffman. Set in a retirement home for retired Opera Singers. Jack Reacher is still sitting strong in the chart. At number 6 is Pitch Perfect, keeping the teens happy. I have seen groups of older women going in to see this film. At number 7 is Parental Guidance. Keeping families entertained. Number 8 is Rise of the Guardians being popular for the children. Skyfall is still in the chart at number 9. People are still going to see this film. You can already pre-order the film on DVD for February. At number 10 is Tinkerbell and the Secret of the Wings, another children’s 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!
