What’s big at the UK Box Office this week?

August 23rd, 2012 by Stuart Miller Comments

I really like it when the box office top 10 gets a bit of a shake up and this week’s chart is one of those weeks with last week’s number 1 Ted finally getting knocked off the top spot, however it wasn’t from a new entry but from a film that finally got released in England and Wales.

Four new films entered this week’s top 10, first off going in at a really low tenth spot was British comedy film The Wedding Video, doing extremely well even though it was only open in 36 screens was bollywood film Ek Tha Tiger that managed to hit the number six spot, going in at a low number four was the huge action ensemble film The Expendables 2. The highest new entry this week though went to The Bourne Legacy which went straight into the number two spot but it was Brave that is this week’s new number one with it finally getting released in England and Wales after spending 2 weeks in the chart thanks to takings from Scottish and Irish cinemas.

10. The Wedding Video – (NE) – £333.079
9. Step Up 4: Miami Heat – £340.072 – £1.797.048
8. Ice Age 4: Continental Drift – £350.788 – £27.603.587
7. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days – £459.526 – £5.229.266
6. Ek Tha Tiger – (NE) – £543.073
5. Dark Knight Rises – £1.506.178 – £49.776.391
4. The Expendables 2 – (NE) – £1.985.082
3. Ted – £2.076.046 – £22.186.549
2. The Bourne Legacy – (NE) – £4.620.289
1. Brave – £5.269.402 – £8.270.546

New Releases – If you are a comedy fan then you are in luck with this week’s selection of new releases. First off is comedy remake The 3 Stooges which I think will have a bit of a problem in the UK box office, next up is alien comedy The Watch and your final choice of the week and is Keith Lemon: The Movie.
