UK top ten box office countdown (WE 16th June 2014)

June 18th, 2014 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

Well very little changed in this week’s chart, with the top four films from last week staying in the same spot, this could be down to more people interested in the world cup.

With that in mind, 22 Jump Street remained as the number one film, taking nearly as much as the entire run of the first film in the series.

Their were new entries in this week’s chat, three in fact, however, none of them managed to make any kind of impact, so much so that the entire takings of the three new films came short of the £1 million mark, what’s even more alarming is the fact that the films showed on a overall total of 981 screens, taking just £962 per screen.

The three new films in question in this week’s chart are true life drama Devil’s Knot which went in at number nine, period drama Belle which hit the number six spot and horror film Oculus which found its way to a very low number five and becoming the lowest placing top release since The Quiet Ones back in April of this year.

New Releases – Another quiet week is on the cards, so don’t be surprised to read that next week’s overall takings are down for a second time. So, if you do want something new to see instead of watching the football, then on offer is romantic drama The Fault in Our Stars, thriller 3 Days to Kill, film adaptation of musical Jersey Boys and thriller The Art of the Steal.
