UK top ten box office countdown (WE 14th October 2013)

October 17th, 2013 by Stuart Miller Comments

Last week I said that it was the lowest takings week of the year, well low and behold this week has gone and beaten that, in fact none of the movies managed to get past the £1 million mark, this is the first time it has happened since the middle of 2012.

There wasn’t much of a challenge from any of the new films this week on last week’s number one, Prisoners, as it has managed to hold on to the top spot for its third week.

Two new films went into the lower end of the chart. First off, going in at number seven was Le Week End, the highest new entry went to the Fifth Estate which only managed to go into the number six spot.

New Releases – Finally a few films that will shake up next week’s top ten, firstly you have drama Captain Phillips, your next choice is action thriller Escape Plan and your final film on offer is animated film Turbo.

10. White House Down – £189,586 – £4,175,310
9. Justin and the Knights of Valor – £191,556 – £2,695,856
8. Runner Runner – £279,339 – £2,385,186
7. Le Weekend – (NE) – £324,888
6. The Fifth Estate – (NE) – £502,495
5. Rush – £531,945 – £8,892,873
