US Box Office Top 10 21-23/10

The US box Office normally throws up a few surprise however nobody predicted how well Paranormal Activity 3 would do and it seems that it’s done well to not only knock last weeks number 1 film off the top spot Real Steel but has also taken more than the rest of the top 10 combined.

There were 3 new entries in the chart, going in at number 8 and surprising a few people is the very British Johnny English Reborn, doing much better but below what was expected of it was the Three Musketeers which could only manage the number 4 spot but like i have said blowing everything out of the water is the third in the Paranormal Activity smashing not only the $50 million dollar mark but also claiming the title of the highest grossing debuting horror film.

10 – 50/50 – $2.800.000 – $28.800.000

9 – The Thing – $3.115.000 – $14.100.000

8 – Johnny English Reborn – (NE) – $3.800.000

7 – Moneyball – $4.050.000 – $63.708.000

6 – Dolphin Tale – $4.200.000 – $64.390.000

5 – The Ides of March – $4.900.000 – $29.159.000

4 – The Three Musketeers – (NE) – $8.800.000

3 – Footloose – $10.850.000 – $30.863.000

2 – Real Steel – $11.319.000 – $67.226.000

1 – Paranormal Activity 3 – (NE) – $54.020.000

It’s going to be really difficult to choose which film will knock off Paranormal Activity 3 off the top spot as there are 2 huge films out this week.

First off there’s the Sci-Fi thriller that has Justin Timberlake in it and looks really good In Time, then there’s the movie that i think will hit the top spot is the spin off from the Shrek series Puss In Boots.

UK Box Office Top 10 17/10

It was a interesting week for films however none of the new releases could knock last weeks number 1 Johnny English Reborn off the top spot even though there was stiff competition.

There were a total of 4 new entries in the top 10 first off the lowest of the new entries went to Dolphin Tale which could manage the number 7 spot, doing a little bit better but no where near what was expected of it was Footloose which only managed to dance it’s way to number 6 in the chart.

The second of the highest new entries went to Real Steel which punched it’s way to the number 4 spot however it was the Three Musketeers which managed the highest chart position of any of the new entries managing to swashbuckle it’s way to 3rd place.

10 – Drive – £178.230 – £2.392.812

9 – Don’t be Afraid of the Dark – £250.542 – £1.099.346

8 – Midnight in Paris – £396.584 – £1.283.525

7 – Dolphin Tale – (NE) – £429.140

6 – Footloose – (NE) – £460.271

5 – Tinker Tailor Solider Spy – £572.806 – £12.342.655

4 – Real Steel – (NE) – £1.337.491

3 – The Three Musketeers – (NE) – £1.461.251

2 – The Lion King 3D – £1.906.686

1 – Johnny English Reborn – £3.072.542 – £9.643.386

We have a interesting week when it comes to new releases and there are 4 films that will be trying to stir things up in next weeks chart.

The outside shot of the 4 is the very interesting looking We Need to Talk About Kevin, the second film of the 4 which has a better chance is the teen romantic comedy Monte Carlo, thirdly we have Steven Soderbergh new film Contagion which should get in the higher end of the top five, last but not least is Paranormal Activity 3 which should knock Johnny English off the top spot.

US Box Office Top 10: 14-16/10

It seems that nothing could punch Real Steel off the top spot this week as it has managed another week at number 1 however there were 2 movies that had given it a good go.

3 films tried there best to make a impact on the chart, going in at number 9 was the Big Year the comedy film with Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson, doing better and going in to the number 3 spot was horror prequel The Thing and finally the movie that nearly hit the peak was another remake in the form of Footloose.

 

10 – The Lion King 3D – $2.708.000 – $90.452.000

9 – The Big Year – (NE) – $3.325.000

8 – Courageous – $3.400.000 – $21.378.000

7 – 50/50 – $4.315.000 – $24.334.000

6 – Moneyball – $5.500.000 – $57.712.000

5 – Dolphin Tale – $6.345.000 – $58.672.000

4 – The Ides of March – $7.500.000 – $22.154.000

3 – The Thing – (NE) – $8.700.000

2 – Footloose – (NE) – $16.100.000

1 – Real Steel – $16.304.000 – $51.744.000

 

There are 3 films which will be trying to knock Real Steel of the top spot next week and i think at least 2 of them have a really big chance.

First off we have the outside chance in the form of comedy sequel Johnny English Reborn, then we have The Three Musketeers which i think should get into the top 3 however the movie that i think has the best chance to knock Real Steel of the top spot is Paranormal Activity 3.
