Ten years ago

Twenty five years ago
Presumed Innocent comes in at at the top knocking off Another 48 Hours from the top.

This weeks top 3 is unchanged from last week meaning that the true story of an expedition to the summit of Everest is still the number one film.

It was a quiet weekend with Everest only taking £1.9 million during it's second weekend of release, this brings it's total gross after 10 days to £6.8 million.

The static top 3 means the highest new film of the week comes in at 4, Drew Barrymore and Toni Collette star the the romantic comedy Miss You Already.

Surprisingly positive reviews haven't helped the film that much and the film debuts with only £487,247.

By far the biggest total grossing film on the box office this week is Minions which just about hangs onto the top 15 and has grossed to date £46.3 million, its still not reached Despicable Me's total gross of £47 million but its not far behind.

There should be a big change in next weeks chart with Ridley Scotts The Martian opening, Robert De Niro in The Intern and a new adaptation of Macbeth with Michael Fassbender.

This weeks US box office has The Equalizer topping on it's debut week of release and has Denzel Washington continue his run of box office hits.

Based on the 80's TV show of the same name, the Antoine Fuqua directed film tops the box office on it's debut weekend of release with a gross of $35 million.

Falling to number two this week is The Maze Runner which on it;s second week of release takes $17.5 million takings it's total gross after 10 days to $58 million.

Also new on the US box office this week is The Boxtrolls which enters at 3 with a gross of $17.2 million.

New films out this week are Denzel Washington in The Equalizer doing battle with Julianne Moore in Map to the Stars.

Having done the media rounds during the week the Antoine Fuqua directed The Equalizer will no doubt hit the top spot over the weekend. The film stars a popular Hollywood figure and has the built in audience of the original 80's TV show.

Map to the Stars is set to make a smaller splash this week, but given the female cast and the male dominated Equalizer this could easily get a top 5 entry, Pride is a challenge but on it's way out already.

The Boxtrolls is bound to loose it's place at the top this weekend and Liam Neesons A Walk Among the Tombstones will most likely stay in the runner up spot behind Mr Washington.

Check back next week for a breakdown of the weekend chart.

Last weekend The Boxtrolls managed to keep a very slender lead ahead of Liam Neeson in a tightly fought battle for the top.

The Boxtrolls makes it 2 weeks at the top, this week with no advanced screenings, but it still manages to retain a £1.33 million weekend and £3.6 million from 10 days of release.

Highest new entry for the week is A Walk Among the Tombstones starring Liam Neeson reprising a role for which he seems to have found a nice since his starring in Taken.

Tombstones narrowly missed out the the top spot by about £15 million, taking £1.31 for the weekend, with The Equaliser being released on Friday it will likely not get it's day at the top.

Also new this week are

  • The Riot Club at 5
  • 20,000 Days On Earth at 8
  • Magic In The Moonlight at 12
  • The Giver at 14
  • Khoobsurat at 15

Historical box office

This time last year Ron Howard's Rush was still topping the box office with the highest new film right down at 5 in the shape of Diana.

Five years ago Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs was the new film at the top knocking District 9 down to second place.

Ten years ago Tom Cruise went serious in Collateral knocking Open Water down to second after a single week on top.

Fifteen years ago The Generals Daughter entered in second place while Eyes Wide Shut stayed at the top for a second week.

The Boxtrolls hit the number 1 spot at the UK box office this week, but it had a little help from previews screenings the previous week.

In a similar vein to Bad Neighbours from earlier in the year, The Boxtrolls' official gross for the weekend is £2 million, but £600,000 was achieved with the previous weeks previews.

A £1.6 million weekend would have still seen it at the top but with a much reduced opening, last weeks top film, Lucy falls to second place £811,936, still £800,000 behind.

Regardless of how figures are worked out it was still a very quiet weekend at UK cinemas, only one film over a million and film number 15 under £100,000.

With no major blockbuster out this week either, we might see a similar picture this time next week.

Historical box office.

This time last year things looked far better at the box office, Insidious Chapter 2 topped the box office knocking About Time down to 4th, Rush and White House Down also debuting at 2 and 3.

Five years ago District 13 was still at the top while the highest new film was Dorian Gray which entered at 3.

Ten years ago low budget factual drama Open Water took over at the top of the chart, The Terminal few from 1 to 2 on it;s second week of release.
