UK top ten box office countdown (WE 23 February 2013)

February 28th, 2013 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

Well it looks like A Good Day to Die Hard is not shouting Yippee Ki Yay anymore as it only managed to hold on to the top spot for one lonely week, instead it was the might of Wreck-It Ralph that found its way of reigning supreme over everything else.

This week’s chart saw three new films grace it, first off going in at number eight was comedy drama Song For Marion, doing slightly better by hitting the number six spot was sci-fi drama Cloud Atlas. This week’s highest new entry though went to horror film Mama which found its way into the top three at number three.

One other box office result of note is Danny Dyer’s new film Run for your Wife, after it only took £602 in its opening weekend it has managed to crawl back a bit of its dignity by bringing its overall total to just over £13,000 and putting it in the small category of films that has made more than 20 times what it took in its first week.

10. Beautiful Creatures – £398.401 – £2.170.260
9. Django Unchained – £427.027 – £14.541.950
8. Song for Marion – (NE) – £456+.714
7. This is 40 – £473.915 – £2.288.475
6. Cloud Atlas – (NE) – £544.725
5. I Give it a Year – £632.195 – £5.084.998
4. Les Miserable – £765.367 – £37.804.139
3. Mama – (NE) – £1.512.297
2. A Good Day To Die Hard – £1.646.541 – £8.192.198
1. Wreck-It Ralph – £3.240.196 – £18.624.692

New Releases: A bit of a mixture of films to pick from this week, so I will quickly go over them. If OTT horror action is your taste then Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is for you. Sticking with horror you also have small shaky cam film The Bay. It’s not all about horror though you also have two dramas to choose from in the form of Broken city and Arbitrage.
