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.

I guess it will come as no shock to anybody to find out that Iron Man 3 has spent it’s second week atop the chart despite a drop of nearly 50% as none of this weeks new entries were strong enough.

A total of 4 new films entered this weeks chart, first off going in at number 8 was revenge thriller starring Colin Farrell in Dead Man Down, hitting the chart one spot above at number 7 was comedy film I’m So Excited.  Into the top 5 and at number 4 was children’s dance movie All Stars, this weeks highest new entry though went to comedy film 21 and Over which went straight into the number 2 spot.

When it comes to new films trying to knock Iron Man off the top spot, this weeks big new release Star Trek Into Darkness might just have the power to do that.  There is a couple of other new films out this weeks as well including thriller Deadfall, drama Mud and action film Vehicle 19.
