UK top ten box office countdown (WE 18 January, 2013)

Well it looks like dreaming a dream for Les Miserables paid off as it has managed to stay on the top of the chart, despite a bit of competition from Mr Tarantino’s new film.

Only two new entries in this week’s chart, first off going in at number seven was the 3D re-release of Monsters Inc just in time for you to brush up on the characters ready for the sequel this summer. The highest new entry this week went to Django Unchained going in at number two and making it Tarantino’s second highest grossing debut movie.

Just a quick note on two films that failed to make the chart and that’s The Sessions which took just under £84,000 and was released on 104 screens and horror anthology movie V/H/S which was only shown on 14 screens and took just over £2,000, which is a shame as it’s a good movie, however I feel it will play better on home release.

10. Parental Guidence – £206.060 – £4.224.758
9. Jack Reacher – £212.540 – £9.126.695
8. Quartet – £335.518 – £5.904.503
7. Monsters Inc 3D – (NE) – £681.247
8. The Hobbit – £765.437 – £49.997.203

4. The Impossible – £1.092.754 – £9.118.833
3. Life of Pi – £1.201.163 – £24.147.499
2. Django Unchained – (NE) – £2.801.312
1. Les Miserables – £4.406.828 – £17.360.303

New Releases – You have a lot to choose from this week if you are after a new release, so I will quickly go over them. First off, you have small unknown British horror film Hollow, your next film choice is comedy movie featuring the biggest cast I have ever seen in Movie 43, Mr Schwarzenegger returns to the big screen with action movie The Last Stand, Steven Spielberg brings us the story of Lincoln and Jessica Chastain stars in Kathryn Bigalow’s thriller Zero Dark Thirty.
