Another big week for new releases and for the second week in a row an all new top 3 on the video chart with Goosebumps leading the way.
Starring Jack Black the film was released at the UK cinema on 5th February 2016 where it entered the UK box office at number 1.
The following week the film fell to number 5 and had a relatively short 6 week stay on the UK box office before disappearing.
In that time though the film did manage to gross a fairly reasonable £8.5 million although this is quite low for a Jack Black film for which King Kong is his highest grossing movie.
Also for director Rob Letterman it is his lowest grossing movie to date.
The rest of the top 3 reads like: Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie is new at number 2 and Ride Along 2 is new at number 3.
Last weeks top film Spotlight falls right down to number 8 this week.
Soccer documentary Bobby is also new this week at number 12.
With the sad passing of legendary '80's teen movie director John Hughes this week I find myself for the second time in a couple of months reflecting on my childhood, I grew up watching John Hughes movies as I did listening to Michael Jackson music.
John Hughes was a director and writer who was tapped directly into the teenage angst of the '80's, like almost no other writer of the time we demonstrated on screen and in words exactly what us teens at the time were thinking and trying to tell our parents.
It doesn't matter if it was Ferris Buellers rebelling against the school and deciding to have a day off, or 5 kids stuck in detention for crimes of simply growing up, the anguish a young boy, or girl, can go through when the object of their affection fancies someone else, these movies spoke to us and often spoke for us.
My personal favourite film of his is The Breakfast Club, as with all his films it has what is now considered a typical 80's soundtrack, but the moment you see Judd Nelson punch the air and hear Simple Minds chant "he he he" you know it's an iconic figure to last. Weird Science and Ferris Buellers Day Off of further examples of classic teen movies much loved by the kids of the generation and directed by Hughes, but it's the films he attached his name to as producer or writer which further show proof of his genius.
Although it's been nearly 20 years since his name was really in the spotlight with a big movie his legendary status has survived and he will be sorely missed.
