Highest Grossing Movies of 2013

It’s that time of the year when all of the pennies are counted and we discover which film has taken the most at the UK box office.

Only one movie this year managed to crack the £40 million mark and was a run away winner.  The rest of the top 10 could of easily been predicted apart from one surprise entry at number seven.

There were a few films that missed out on the top 10 including Thor: The Dark World which went in number 13, World War Z could only manage the number 19 spot, The Wolverine went in at number 20 taking just over the £20 million mark, the biggest film for me that failed to make any kind of impact on the chart was the brilliantly fun Pacific Rim which could only place 39th only just managing the top 40.

Well despite 2 new films trying their best to make a impact on this weeks chart last weeks number one, Fast and Furious 6 has managed to hold on to the top spot for a second week.

As said above 2 new films entered this weeks chart.  First off going in at number 3 was action Sci-Fi After Earth, the film however under-performed badly as Sony were expecting it to take around the $50 million mark but it could only manage $27 million.  This week’s highest new entry went to magic thriller Now You See Me which went straight into the number 2 spot.

Only 2 new films will be trying there best to get into next weeks top 10, comedy movie The Internship and thriller horror The Purge.

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

Well Star Trek Into Darkness could only hold on to the top spot for just one week, in fact it was knocked down to number 3 thanks to the only 2 new films in this weeks chart.

As said above there was only 2 new films in this weeks top 10.  First off going in at number 3 was The Great Gatsby, the film by Australian director Baz Luhrmann was his highest grossing debut weekend film.  The highest new entry and this weeks new number one went to Fast and Furious 6, not only is it the highest taking Fast and Furious film in it’s debut weekend, it has managed to to take more in it’s first weekend than the whole takings from the first 3 Fast and Furious films combined.

The big films keep on coming and next weeks chart should have two more of them, animated film Epic from the studio behind Ice Age and the wolfpack is back in The Hangover Part 3.  It’s not all about the big films though as 2 of my favorite films of all time from the brilliant Studio Ghibli are getting a re-release, both My Neighbour Totaro and Grave of the Fireflies are getting a 25th anniversary release.

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.

It has finally happened, Iron Man 3 reign at the top of the chart has finally come to a end by one of this weeks new films.

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.

2 new films out next week that will be trying to topple Star Trek off the top spot after only 1 week are, Baz Luhrmann version of The Great Gatsby and the crew return for for there sixth outing in Fast and Furious 6.

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

2. 21 and Over – (NE) – £772,235

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
