UK Box Office Top 10

Not a very good week at the box office and that’s thanks to the really warm weather, so despite there being 4 new entries in the top 10 and there being a new number 1, this week saw some of the lowest takings since last October.

As said above 4 new films graced this weeks chart, first off hitting the number 10 spot despite only being on 26 screens was comedy Sci-Fi film Iron Sky, going in at number 7 was the latest film from Wes Anderson, Moonrise Kingdom, hitting the number 4 spot but doing worse that what was expected of it was What to Expect When your Expecting, however it was the Men in Black in there third outing that went straight into the top spot but it’s not good news for the film, the takings for MIB 3 were way down from the 1st and 2nd films and this is the worst debuting number 1 film for a while.

10. Iron Sky – (NE) – £66.076

9. Beauty and the Beast 3D – £69.795 – £2.475.361

8. The Raid – £116.340 – £805.399

New Releases – It’s a very big week for films in the UK as we have 2 huge films and one that nobody wanted, first off the nobody which see’s the return of Top Cat however this time in 3D.  On to the 2 big films though, the first one is another telling of Snow White this time Starring Kristen Stewart in Snow White and the Huntsman however it’s the return of Ridley Scott to the Alien genre that fans have been waiting for, so for me the biggest film out this week can only be Prometheus.

UK Box Office Top 10

It’s was very obvious that Battleship couldn’t hold on to the top spot for another week seeing as the biggest release of the year was creeping up behind it.

1 new film graced this weeks chart and it was very obvious even to a person living in a hole that it was going to go straight into the number one spot taking an insane amount of money and that film is Avengers Assemble.

10 – Lockout – £169.133 – £1.075.002

9 – 21 Jump Street – £205.514 – £9.863.555

New Releases – There are a lot of films out this week but i doubt any of them will knock Avengers Assemble of the top spot, first off is the 3D re-release of Beauty and the Beast, next is romantic drama starring Zac Effron in the Lucky One, the latest Spanish film to get a remake is also released this week in the form of Silent House, Jason Statham is back in action mode in Safe and finally the full gang return of a big meet up in American Pie Reunion.

There were 3 new entries in this weeks top 10, first off going in at number 3 was drama Joyful Noise, doing much better but not as good as it’s 3D counterpart was Beauty and the Beast 3D which went in to the number 2 spot however it was thriller Contraband that hit the top spot.

There are 3 big releases out this week however i have thrown in one wild card which i don’t think will get in the top 10 but i wanted to point it out.

The 3 big releases are action thriller from Steven Soderberg Haywire, then there is action drama Red Tails and finally the film that has the best chance of getting into the top 3 if not hit the top spot is Underworld Awakening.

The wild card is the one that interests me the most and if it’s opening in a theater near you go and see it and that’s Full Metal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos.
