2013 Monday Movie Show Award Winners

Another year is about to come to a close and it’s probably the best time to look over what this year has brought us.

Yes we still suck at sport no matter what it is, we are still in a rescission where the government says we are fine however we know that we are still screwed, the videogame industry saw two new consoles released and people still complain oh and most music still sucks.

However we are not here to look over that annoying stuff we are here to celebrate the best and worst of 2013 in the wonderful world of films.  So me and Andrew got our heads together and came up with what we think deserve a couple of awards, yes there were some arguments (i still have the bruisers) but we finally came to an agreement and the awards can be viewed below.

This weeks top 10 has had a nice bit of a shake up, this means that last weeks number 1, Star Trek Into Darkness no longer rules the chart, it now finds itself at the number 3 spot.

3 new films made there way into this weeks top 10.  First off going in at a low number 4 was animated film Epic from the studio that brought us the Ice Age Series.  Hitting the number 2 spot was the 3rd and final film in the Hangover series with Hangover Part 3, now you would think that the studio would be happy with this taking $42 million in it’s opening weekend however this is $43 million less than part 2 in the series and this is the most expensive Hangover film costing $103 million to make.  This weeks highest new entry and the new number 1 went to Fast and Furious 6 taking just under the $100 million mark.

Next week see’s two new films trying to get into the chart, Sci-Fi action film After Earth and thriller Now You See Me.

10. Oblivion – $815,000 – $87,280,000

9. The Croods – $1,215,000 – $179,238,000

Very little has changed in this weeks chart apart from the fact that we have a new number 1 as Iron Man 3 could only hold on to the top spot for 2 weeks.

Only one new film made it’s way into the chart and it’s this weeks new number 1, Star Trek Into Darkness.  Star Trek however hasn’t had all it’s own way as not only did the film not meet it’s target of $100 million but it took less than the first Star Trek film from J.J.Abrams in it’s opening weekend.

Next weeks chart should see a bit of a shake up as 3 huge films will be fighting it out to try and knock Star Trek off the top spot.  First up on the block is animated film from the people behind Ice Age and Rio, Epic, then we have the 6th in the Fast and Furious films with Fast and Furious 6.  The final film of the week see’s the wolf pack back for the last time with The Hangover Part 3.

Only 2 new movies managed to get into the top 10 this week, first off going in at number 7 was drama Mud starring Matthew McConaughey.  This weeks highest new entry and going straight into the number 1 spot was Star Trek Into Darkness, the good news for the film keeps coming as not only has it managed to take 70% more worldwide in it’s opening weekend than the first movie but it’s also taken more in the UK box office than it’s counterpart.

Well as you can probably guess Iron Man 3 was victorious for the 2nd week despite have a 58% drop in takings and nearly getting knocked off the top spot by one of this weeks new entries.

Only 2 new films made their way into the top 10, first off going in at number 4 was comedy film Tyler Perry Presents Peebles.  This weeks highest new entry went to The Great Gatsby which managed to hit the number 2 spot and took a very impressive $51 million, if it was released any other week over the year then it would of gone in at number 1.

When it comes with new films trying to find their way into the chart there is only 1 film of note and that’s Star Trek Into Darkness, if any film can knock Iron Man 3 off the top it is Star Trek.

10. OZ the Great and Powerful  -$802,000 – $229,985,000

9. Mud – $2,343,000 – $8,363,000

8. The Big Wedding – $2,500,000 – $18,288,000

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.

10. Evil Dead – £243,113 – £3,141,364

9. The Place Beyond the Pines – £283,348 – £2,930,607

8. Dead Man Down – (NE) – £294,125

7. I’m So Excited – (NE) – £310,908

6. The Croods – £394,784 – £24,971,608

3. Olympus Has Fallen – £672,755 – £5,163,790

1. Iron Man 3 – £6,307,191 – £24,568,956

Well as predicted last week Pain and Gain could only hold on to the top spot for just one week and the only new entry of the week has not just gone and smashed it off the top spot but it has managed to take more than the rest of the top 10 combined.

Only 1 new film found it’s way into the chart this week and it doesn’t take a idiot to guess that it went to Iron Man 3 which went straight into the number 1 spot.  The film took a huge $175 million the second highest debuting film of all time behind The Avengers which managed a insane $207 million in it’s opening weekend.

I doubt that any of next weeks new films will be able to knock off Iron Man 3 from atop the chart however both The Great Gatsby and comedy film Tyler Perry Pepples will give it a try.

10. The Place Beyond the Pines – $1,298,000  -$18,678,000

9. Scary Movie 5 – $1,435,000  -$29,603,000

8. OZ the Great and Powerful – $1,822,000 – $228,568,000

7. Mud – $2,150,000 – $5,158,000

6. The Big Wedding – $3,875,000 – $11,421,000

5. The Croods – $4,225,000 – $168,743,000

4. Oblivion – $5,797,000 – $75,969,000

3. 42 – $6,210,000 – $78,336,000

2. Pain and Gain – $7,600,000 – $33,919,000

1. Iron Man 3 – (NE) – $175,300,000

As predicted last weeks number 1 Olympus Has Fallen only managed to make it one week at the top of the chart as the only new film out this week smashed it off it’s perch.

You can probably guess what film went straight into the number 1 spot but just encase you don’t know it was Iron Man 3 by taking just under £14 million in it’s opening weekend but how well did it do against the other films in the series and ultimately against The Avengers.

Well first off this is the highest taking Iron Man film out of the 3 out doing the second in the series by £5 million pounds, the good news continues for the film as it has out done The Avengers with it’s global takings by more than $10 million however it’s not all good news, the film didn’t manage to take more than the Avengers in the UK as that managed just under £16 million in it’s opening weekend beating Iron Man 3 by nearly £2 million.

Oh and there was one more other film out this week just encase you forgot in the form of The Look of Love which went into the number 7 spot

10. OZ the Great and Powerful – £70,191 – £14,987,064

9. Love is All you Need – £129,465 – £506,875

8. Scary Movie 5 – £162,231 – £2,344,473

7. The Look of Love – (NE) – £208,557

6. The Place Beyond the Pines – £422,035 – £2,403,464

5. Evil Dead – £538,466 – £2,560,331

4. The Croods – £605,589 – £24,485,693

3. Oblivion – £682,543 – £9,453,544

2. Olympus Has Fallen – £913,370 – £4,003,912

1. Iron Man 3 – (NE) – £13,711,048

New Releases – if you are after a new film to see this week then you have a couple of small films to choose from.  First off is comedy film from the creators of The Hangover, 21 and Over, your next movie choice is revenge thriller Dead Man Down and your final choice is comedy drama The Eye of the Storm.

Last week Oblivion showed it’s weight by going straight into the number one spot even though it didn’t have very much in the way of competition, this week however the film couldn’t hold on to the top spot as it has been knocked off (just) by one of this weeks new films.

In a very weak week for new films only 2 found their way into the top 10, first off going in at the number 4 spot was romantic comedy The Big Wedding starring Robert De Niro and Susan Sarandon.  The highest new entry of the week and the new number one went to the Michael Bay action film Pain and Gain.

Next weeks chart however will have a big kick up the bum that it needs as the only new film of note released is Iron Man 3 and i expect it to easily go straight into the number 1 spot and i expect it to take more than $100 million.

10. Jurassic Park 3D – $2,310,000 – $133,410,000

9. The Place Beyond the Pines – $2,699,000 – $16,205,000

8. Olympus Has Fallen – $2,768,000 – $93,076,000

7. Scary Movie 5 – $3,457,000 – $27,494,000

6. GI Joe Retaliation – $3,620,000 – $116,396,000

5. The Croods – $6,600,000 – $163,025,000

4. The Big Wedding – (NE) – $7,500,000
