UK top ten box office countdown (WE16th December 2013)

December 19th, 2013 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

It will come as no surprise to hear that last week’s number one, Frozen, is now no longer sitting at the top of the tree, despite it only dropping 10.7% on last week’s takings.

The only new entry in this week’s chart, and the new number one, went to The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. The second part of the trilogy opened up just shy of the £10 million markwhich is bad news for the film as the first part opened up with over £2 million more.

New Releases – A few new films are out this week in the form of Anchorman: The Legend Continues, Harry Hill hits the big screen hard with The Harry Hill Movie and those annoying Moshi Monsters make their big screen debut with there own movie.

Future Releases – As this will be the last chart on the site for 2013 a couple of new films are also out on the 26th December in the form of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty and 47 Ronin starring Keanu Reeves.
