Neil Burger takes his film Limitless to the top of the UK box office this week during its first weekend of release beating A Turtles Tale and The Eagle.
Grossing a crowd pleasing £2 million during its first weekend Limitless stars The Hangovers Bradley Cooper and legend Robert De Niro in a thriller about a man who takes a drug allowing him to use 100% of his brain.
Animated tale, A Turtles Tale is at two this week, debuting with a gross of £1.1 million the film, in 3D, stars the voice of Melanie Griffith.
New at three is The Eagle, Kevin Macdonald 300 style action thriller set in 140 AD. Staring Channing Tatum the film debuts with just over a million at the box office.
Rango takes a hard fall this week to 4 with a gross of £670,992 bringing it's total to £5,892,274, and Liam Neesons Unknown falls to 5 this week with £477,531 taking it's gross to £5,366,574. This weeks chart was down on this time last year when the Nanny McPhee sequel topped the chart in its debut week and high grossers Alice in Wonderland and Avatar were starting to slip out of the cinemas.
After a very quiet weekend at the UK box office Rango reclaims the top spot from Battle: Los Angeles.
In recent weeks the top 5 films (sometimes more) have been grossing over a million pound in weekend box office grosses, this week only Rango, and barely, takes a million. The weekend gross for the film is £1,045,326 which takes it total to £5,020,745 over a 3 weeks period.
Falling a single place this week is Battle: Los Angelies which takes £874,265 for the weekend bringing its total now to £3,454,350.
Keeping its grip on the number 3 spot is Liam Neeson's Unknown which takes £775,576 giving it a £4,496,496 total over 3 weeks, this could be a bit of a slow burner you know.
At number four we come to the highest new entry of the week which goes to show what a slow week it is, Chalet Girl starring Felicity Jones and Ed Westwick star in the Phil Traill directed movie about the goings on in a Ski resort. The film takes £677,716 over the weekend.
Another new entry is at 5 in the shape of the The Lincoln Lawyer, directed by Brad Furman and starring Matthew McConaughey and Marisa Tomei, a film about a Lawyer who uses the back of his car, a Lincoln, to do business when he gets a Beverly Hill client. The Lincoln Lawyer takes £571,836 in its opening weekend.
This week's box office was way down on this time last year when Alice in Wonderland was still at number one doing big numbers and The Bounty Hunter with Jennifer Anniston was the highest new film at two.
It's good to see that filming of The Hobbit has started after what seems like an endless stream of delays from copyright issues to ill health from the director.
The journey so far has been well documented and includes scripting issues, rights issues, director issues but the film is in the right hands and come Christmas 2012 we should be enjoying the first of the 2 movies.
The original films were an unknown quantity at this stage of production, and little known director Peter Jackson was spreading the word as much as he could that he was making the Lord of the Rings trilogy, no one could have anticipated how the film would re-write cinema history.
Hype for the two new films will reach fever pitch, anticipation will be higher than Star Wars Episode 1, but Jackson is a better director than Lucas and the feeling that these films will be nothing short of amazing is strong.
There is still a year and nine months until we get to see the films but expect the first production still soon and no doubt video vignettes and diary's to keep us interested. The original films had a web cam on set at the Hobbiton village; I'd like to see that return.
Action film Battle: Los Angeles fights its way to the top of the UK box office this week de-throwning Rango in the process.
There was not a lot of hype for the film really, but Battle: Los Angeles still manages to take a fairly modest £1.8 million pound this week. The film stars Aaron Eckhart with a story about aliens invading Los Angeles, not the most original of stories but always a crowd pleaser. The film is top in the US as well.
Falling a single place this week is Rango. The Animated film with the voice of Johnny Depps takes £1.5 million bringing its 2 week gross to £ 3,615,885.
Climbing up a single place this week is the Liam Neeson thriller Unknown which adds just over a million pound to its gross so after 2 weeks it's now taken £ 3,161,588.
Falling to fourth is The Adjustment Bureau with a weekend gross of £911,863 taking its total to £3,082,693 and then new at 5 is Hall Pass which takes a lower than expected £900,936.
This week's box office chart is a lot lower than last week's where Alice in Wonderland was still riding high on number one with a weekend of £7.3 million and a total gross of nearly £23 million. Shutter Island and Green Zone took over a 2 million each and Avatar was still hanging on with over half a million pound, its total gross in the UK had reached nearly £90 million.
