Tune in live Thursday from 9pm est

It’s our weekly look at the UK boxoffice top 10

June 21st, 2012 by Stuart Miller Comments


Not a very big week when it comes to the top 10 as none of the new films released this week managed to challenge the top 3; as a matter of a fact, the top 3 remained the same with Prometheus still holding on to the top spot for a 3rd week almost passing the £20 million mark.

Even though there were a lot of new films out this week only 3 managed to crack the top 10. First off, going in at number 8 was Olympic inspired film Fast Girls, doing better by going in at number 6 was Red Lights, however it has underperformed despite it having a really strong cast. The highest new entry though went to Rock of Ages which hit the number 4 spot but, like Red Lights, it has not done as well as expected.

10. Top Cat – £246.283 – £2.270.508
9. What to Expect when you’re Expecting – £248.185 – £3.671.036
8. Fast Girls – (NE) – £335.700
7. Marvel’s Avengers Assemble – £376.991 – £50.963.003
6. Red Lights – (NE) – £445.109
5. The Pact – £475.936 – £1.930.949
4. Rock of Ages – (NE) – £1.003.107
3. Snow White and the Huntsman – £1.297.559 – £11.872.691
2. Men in Black 3 – £1.544.429 – £17.436.356
1. Prometheus – £2.009.955 – £19.452.485

New Releases:  2 new films will be trying their best to make a impact on next week’s chart, first off Timur Bekmambetov teams up with Tim Burton for the second time with Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, the other choice this week is Chernobyl Diaries from the director of Paranormal Activity, Oren Peli.
