UK box office top 10
Well Star Trek Into Darkness could only hold on to the top spot for just one week, in fact it was knocked down to number 3 thanks to the only 2 new films in this weeks chart.
As said above there was only 2 new films in this weeks top 10. First off going in at number 3 was The Great Gatsby, the film by Australian director Baz Luhrmann was his highest grossing debut weekend film. The highest new entry and this weeks new number one went to Fast and Furious 6, not only is it the highest taking Fast and Furious film in it’s debut weekend, it has managed to to take more in it’s first weekend than the whole takings from the first 3 Fast and Furious films combined.
The big films keep on coming and next weeks chart should have two more of them, animated film Epic from the studio behind Ice Age and the wolfpack is back in The Hangover Part 3. It’s not all about the big films though as 2 of my favorite films of all time from the brilliant Studio Ghibli are getting a re-release, both My Neighbour Totaro and Grave of the Fireflies are getting a 25th anniversary release.
