UK Box Office Top 10 03/10

It was a very disappointing week at the UK box office with only 1 movie managing to take more than £1 million and that was last weeks number 1 Tinker Tailor Solider Spy which remained n the top of the tree.

There were a few new entries in the top 10 however they didn’t impact the chart that much with the first of the new entries What’s your Number only going in at a very low number 9.

The other new entries in the chart were horror film from the creator of Final Destination, Shark Night 3D at number 6, one place above that was spy thriller the Debt at number 5, the strangest of the new entries went to Phantom of the Opera 25th Anniversary hitting the number 3 spot and finally despite being a pile of crap and hated by critics Taylor Lautner’s new film Abduction went in at number 2.

 

10 – Warrior – £268.410 – £1.409.257

2 – Abduction – (NE) – £900.782

1 – Tinker Tailor Solider Spy – £1.064.901 – £9.097.048

 

There are 5 new films of note out this Friday that will be trying to get into the top 10, the film in my opinion that will have the hardest time is Paddy Considine’s new film Tyrannosaur.

Other films that should have a better chance is the 3D release of the Lion King, the return of Rowan Atkinson as Johnny English in Johnny English Reborn, Woody Allen’s latest film Midnight in Paris and the movie i have high hopes but i doubt it will do that well is Don’t be Afraid of the Dark
