UK top ten box office countdown (WE 16 November, 2012)

November 17th, 2012 by Stuart Miller Comments

Nothing can dislodge Skyfall from the top of the chart as it spends another week at number one and has become the first film to ever take more than £10 million each week it has been in the chart.

Despite nothing wanting to challenge Skyfall at the box office, the chart still had three new films to entertain it, first off, going in at a lower than expected number seven, was musical comedy The Sapphires, doing a bit better by hitting the number four spot was comedy film Here Comes the Boom. This week’s highest new entry though went to the drama from Ben Affleck, Argo, which hit the number 3 spot.

10. Paranormal Activity 4 – £150.652 – £5.834.936
9. Rust and Bone – £154.805 – £549.060
8. Silent Hill: Revelation 3D – £252.406 – £1.661.279
7. The Sapphires – (NE) – £337.641
6. Hotel Transylvania – £361.994 – £7.284.495
5. Taken 2 – £402.121 – £22.994.924
4. Here Comes the Boom – (NE) – £443.052
3. Argo – (NE) – £1.287.770
2. Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted – £1.357.193 – £19.390.301
1. Skyfall – £10.447.385 – £72.019.129

New Releases – Skyfall might now be finally trembling in its boots as the only film that can knock it off the top spot will be released into cinemas from Friday, that film is Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2. There are a couple of other little films also released on Friday but whether they go into the top ten remains to be seen, so if you want to watch something else you have Paul Thomas Anderson’s film The Master and Michael Hanake Amour. Which get our vote…
