UK Box Office Report Weekend 11th December 2015: Four at the top for Mockingjay, Grandma highest new film at 19! Retaining its position at the top of the UK box office this week is The Hinger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 which has now spent 4 weeks as the number 1 film.

Mockingjay this week grosses £1.2 million to give it a total gross of £25.4 million, the second lowest of The Hunger Games films after the first movie.

There were no new releases this week on the box office, Grandma was the closest thing to a new entry which came in at number 19 from 92 screens and a £35,000 opening gross.

By The Sea starring and Directed by Angelina Jolie was new at number 23 and took £24,000 from its debut.

Spectre was yet again the highest total grossing film on the chart this week, still at number 3 and now taken £92 million after 7 weeks.

Point to note is the top 5 this week was the same as the top 5 last week.

The last of The Hunger Games films adds £4.5 million on its second weekend of release which brings its total to £19.3 million after 10 days of release.

The film is almost mirroring the take of the second and third film in the series and will most likely end up grossing somewhere is the region of £30 million which is the same as part 1.

Highest new film of the week is The Good Dinosaur at number 2, the new film from Pixar takes a debut gross of £2.9 million, not quite but certainly one of the lowest gross from a Pixar film.

There is a switch around at the top of the UK video chart this week with paddington going back to the top after dipping down to 2nd last week.

Falling into second place after a week at the top is Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, the Easter holiday doing the film no favours in the sales department.

Highest new film of the week is the Ethan Hawk starring Predestination, a little know film from earlier in the year.

Predestination didn't make a dent on the box office instead having a very small release in just 10 cinemas on 20th February.

The film only hung around for a week and made £1,758 from the 10 cinemas, or about 475 tickets sold.

Not a big week for new releases as the only other new film is Fall of an Empire at number 17.

Christopher Nolan took a risk with his 3 hour space epic Interstellar starring Matthew McConaughey, but the gamble paid off and this week it hits the video top spot.

Released at cinemas on 7th November 2015 the film took £5.3 million on it's opening weekend debuting at the top of the box office in the process.

A 7 week chart run on the UK box office ended on 19th December and during that time it grossed £20.06 million making it the 178th highest grossing film ever in the UK.

The film also did well across the world, in the US it took $188 million while it's world gross stands at $665 making it the 75th highest grossing film ever.

Last weeks top film, Paddington falls just a single place to number 2 this week, despite some cinemas still showing the film!

Other new film on the Uk video chart this week are: Penguins of Madagascar at 3 and Horrible Bosses 2 at 6.

The old British favourite Paddington hits the top of the UK video charts on it's debut week of release.

Paddington was released at the box office on November 28th 2014 to much hype and debuted at the top of the box office in that first week.

Over a 15 week stay on the box office it did amazing business and to date has made £37 million pound, it is still on general release, and still on the top 15 box office.

Although not a major hit worldwide it is the 45th highest grossing film ever in the UK, just ahead of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of The Clones and just behind Monsters, Inc. Last weeks top film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 falls just the one place this week.

Other new film on the video chart are: The Drop at number 5 and The Horseman at number 6.

It was Superbowl weekend in America which is usually bad news for the box office but American Sniper still manages to bring in a good weekend gross to stay at the top.

It's third weekend at the top adds another $31.8 million to it's now massive total which is now running at $248.9 million making it by far the biggest movie of the year to date.

With Paddington staying in second place the highest new film of the week is at 3, Project Almanac, which on it's debut weekend takes $8.5 million, it is only $5,000 behind Paddington.

Also new this week is: Black and White at 4 and The loft at 10.

Staying put this week, Tak3n makes it 2 weeks at the top of the UK box office despite a challenge from the new Clint Eastwood film.

Liam Neeson has become the action hero of the moment with Taken 3 taking another £3.3 million from the weekend which brings it's total to £12.2 million after 10 days.

The threequel is keeping well in line with the previous film in the series but it already double that of the first films full UK cinema run.

Debuting strong at number 2 is American Sniper which enters the Uk box office with a first weekend gross of £2.5 million, Oscar nomination are boosting it's potential and it could end up one of Eastwood's highest grossing films.

The theory of Everything, Into the Woods and Paddington wound out the top five.

Other new films this week are: Whiplash at 7, Wild at 9, The Merry Widow Met Opera 2015 at 10 and Testament of Youth at 11.

At the UK cinema box office this week we have a new top film in the shape of Paddington Bear who gets a cracking start to his cinematic career.

A £5.1 million opening weekend was enough to dislodge last weeks top film, although only just, The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 falls into second place with £4.9 million.

With Paddington making the move from TV to the big screen, and is likely to to gross somewhere in the £20 - £30 million region this is bound to be a new franchise in the making.
