The UK Top Ten Box Office movies

July 19th, 2012 by Stuart Miller Comments

The UK box office top 10 is starting to show signs of change with movies that have been in the chart for months now starting to drop as is the case with last week’s number one, the Amazing Spider-man which couldn’t hold on to the top spot for more than a week with Ice Age 4: Continental Drift taking the throne.

3 new films graced this week’s chart, first of going in at number 5 was bollywood film Cocktail (not a remake of the 80’s film with Tom Cruise), doing better by hitting the number 4 spot is a surprise entry for Seeking a Friend for the end of the World, however the highest new entry went to stripper drama Magic Mike which went in at number 3 taking just over £2.5 million. 

10. Snow White and the Huntsman – £152.741 – £15.519.026
9. Katy Perry: Part of Me – £161.114 – £879.293
8. Prometheus – £185.863 – £24.385.349
7. Men in Black 3 – £215.720 – £21.539.847
6. Five-Year Engagement – £258.618 – £4.422.004
5. Cocktail(NE) – £296.778
4. Seeking a Friend for the end of the World(NE) – £357.200
3. Magic Mike(NE) – £2.651.015

Since then he can't stop watching films and over the years it has become a bit of an obsession, but it's not just films that he has a passion for; he's also a huge videogame fanatic and has also been known for belting out the odd tune or two.
