UK Box Office Top 10

A bit of a disaster has hit this weeks top 10 with the Hunger Games no longer holding on to the top spot thanks to one of this weeks new entries making it hit a cinematic iceberg.

4 new films graced this weeks top 10, first off going in at number 10 was Bollywood film Housefull 2, hitting the number 7 spot was The Cold Light of Day featuring the new Superman Henry Cavill, doing better but that’s down to it being out for 5 days longer than the rest of the new entries was Tarsem Singhs version of Snow White in the form of Mirror Mirror however the highest new entry went to Titanic 3D which throws us into the dark days of cinema by hitting the number 1 spot.

10 – Housefull 2 – (NE) – £396.475

9 – Streetdance 2 – £424.833 – £1.953.260

8 – Best Exotic Marigold Hotel – £451.307 – £17..737.576

New Releases – There are only 2 big releases out this week however there is also 1 small one of note, first off the small one in the form of Blackthorn which tells the story of Butch Cassidy and the fact that he didn’t get killed, next up is huge explosive blockbuster in the vein of Transformers about aliens taking over the world (again) in Battleship however for me it’s The Cabin in the Woods that’s the biggest release of the week from the pen of Joss Wheadon and making his directorial debut Drew Goddard who penned the script to the really good Cloverfield.

Trailer: The Cold Light of Day

While on vacation in Spain a young Wall Street trader’s family is kidnapped. With only hours to find them, he must uncover a government conspiracy and its connection to his father’s secrets.

First Impression – By the looks of things Henry Cavill is trying to be the next John McClane from the look of the trailer, the film looks like it could be fun however it might just turn out to be your paint by numbers action thriller.
