UK Box-office Top Ten w/e 31/08/12

August 30th, 2012 by Stuart Miller Comments

Not a very eventful week when it comes to the box office top ten as none of the new release could knock Brave of the top spot, in fact none of them managed to even crack the top 5.

Three new films entered the chart this week, first off going in at number ten was the documentary that has all of the critics praising it, The Imposter, going in at a low number seven – as I predicted – is the big screen update of The Three Stooges, while the biggest new entry of the week went to the Keith Lemon film which hit the number five spot despite predictions putting it higher.

10. The Imposter – (NE) – £252.170
9. Ice Age 4: Continental Drift – £331.851 – £28.381.351
8. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days – £424.206 – £6.217.366
7. The Three Stooges – (NE) – £509.324
6. Expendables 2 – £1.028.904 – £4.316.173
5. Keith Lemon: The Film – (NE) – £1.196.310
4. Dark Knight Rises – £1.378.717 – £52.534.102
3. The Bourne Legacy – £1.596.289 – £7.828.435
2. Ted – £1.692.883 – £25.620.707
1. Brave – £2.371.691 – £13.259.610

New Releases: An interesting mix of films this week. First off is comedy The Watch which has had a Monday release that’s why it’s not in this week’s top ten and it’s trying to get the highest position possible by getting released two days before any of its competition. Your next lot of films are three horror movies fresh from this years Frightfest; on offer you have Sam Raimi presents The Possession, the third in the REC series and strange giallo inspired horror film Berberian Sound Studio. Two more films are on offer this week with Australian comedy A Few Best Men and remake of the week being Total Recall.

Ever since the age of two he's been a huge movie fan, especially horror films since one of the first films he ever watched was Poltergeist, yes at age two. 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.
