UK box office top 10 – W/E 16/06/14

UKTop10-film-reel-flag-edges

Well very little changed with this weeks chart with the top 4 films from last week still staying in the same spot, this could be down to more people interested in the world cup.

With that in mind 22 Jump Street remained as the number one film taking nearly as much as the entire run of the first film in the series.

Their were new entries in this weeks chat, three in fact however none of them managed to make any kind of impact, so much so that the entire takings of the three new films came short of the £1 million mark, what’s even more alarming is the fact that the films showed on a overall total of 981 screens taking just £962 per screen.

The three new films in question in this weeks chart are true life drama Devil’s Knot which went in at number nine, period drama Belle which hit the number six spot and horror film Oculus which founds it’s way to a very low number five and becoming the lowest placing top release since The Quiet Ones back in April of this year.

New Releases – Another quiet week is on the cards so don’t be surprised to read that next weeks overall takings are down for a second time.  So if you do want something new to see instead of watching the football then on offer is romantic drama The Fault in Our Stars, thriller 3 Days to Kill, film adaptation of musical Jersey Boys and thriller The Art of the Steal.

10. Rio 2 – £83,650 – £15,095,099

9. Devil’s Knot – (NE) – £122,892

8. A Million Ways to Die in the West – £167,143 – £3,003,120

7. Godzilla – £223,407 – £16,876,460

6. Belle – (NE) – £407,120

5. Oculus – (NE) – £413,578

4. Edge of Tomorrow – £744,496 – £5,688,796

3. X-Men: Days of Future Past – £902,146 – £24,793,554

2. Maleficent – £1,570,437 – £13,620,598

Well those Bad Neighbours could only hold on to the top spot for just one week as they have been beaten by the ultimate kaiju in the form of Godzilla to the number one spot.

For the second week in a row the number one movie has taken more than the rest of the top 10 combined and that should happen for a third time with next weeks big releases.

Only one other movie found it’s way into the top 10 and that was thriller drama the Two Faces of January which went in at number five.

UK box office top 11 – W/E 12/05/14

UKTop10-film-reel-flag-edges

That’s right you have read the title correctly, this week I’ve decided to do the top 11 films, more on that a little bit later.

We have a new number one putting the reign of The amazing Spiderman 2 to a end, so give a round of applause to comedy Bad Neighbours which has found it’s way to the top spot thanks to it taking over £5.5 million in it’s preview 6 day’s before official going on releases, overall takings for the film were just under £8.5 million putting behind Ted as the second highest grossing debut 15 rated comedy.

Into the rest of the chart and the reason why I’ve done a top 11 is to include The Wind Rises, now i know i’m being slightly biased however with this being the last movie by Hayoa Miyazaki it needs to be mentions, plus the film only opened up on a small 48 screens and it still managed to take a healthy £199,598.

Other new films and one event in the chart include comedy drama Frank which went in at number 10, opera even La Cenrentoia: Met Opera which hit the number eight spot and thriller Sabotage which hit one place higher at number seven.

New Releases – Only one film of any note is out this week and that’s Gareth Edwards take on the monster movie Godzilla.

11. The Wind Rises – (NE) – £199,598

10. Frank – £202,747

9. Captain America: The Winter Soldier – £252,908 – £19,095,843

8. La Cenrentoia: Met Opera – (NE) – £285,597

7. Sabotage – (NE) – £300,521

6. Tarzan – £440,643 – £1,611,347

5. Pompeii – £505,186 – £2,230,156

4. Rio 2 – £551,655 – £13,289,929

3. The Other Woman – £928,788 – £7,121,577

2. The Amazing Spiderman 2 – £1,286,356 – £22,281,550

1. Bad Neighbours – (NE) – £8,446,240

Well it seems that nothing can move The amazing Spiderman from the top spot as it spends it’s third week at number one, only two other films this year have managed to do that, The Wolf of Wall Street and The Lego movie.

There were three new films in this weeks chart none of them however made much of a impact on the top 10, so much so one of Paul Walkers final films Brick Mansions failed to make the chart, it could only manage the number 12 spot.

The new films in this weeks chart were British comedy thriller Plastic going in at number 10, animated adventure with Tarzan at number four and Paul W.S.Anderson tells his version of Pompeii at number three.

New Releases – It’s a bit of a strange week this week as one film would of been out for seven days however it is classed as a new release because it’s box office takings only count towards next weeks chart and that’s comedy Bad Neighbours.

On to the normal new releases of the week and you have on offer thriller staring Arnold Schwarzenegger in Sabotage, comedy drama Frank starring Michael Fassbender and the most important film of the year Hayoa Miyazaki’s final film for Studio Ghibli, The Wind Rises.

10 – Plastic – (NE) – £154,411

9. Calvary – £203,752 – £2,405,254

8. Transcendence – £229,178 – £1,730,623

7. Noah – £236,058 – £9,580,366

6. Captain America: The Winter Soldier – £357,448 – £18,622,069

5. Rio 2 – £460,886 – £12,410,619

4. Tarzan – (NE) – £808,174

3. Pompeii – (NE) – £1,165,551

2. The Other Woman – £1,447,983 – £5,283,875
