There was no change at the top of the tree on the UK box-office chart. ‘Tangled’ retained its number one spot grossing £4.57m in its second week showing. ‘The King’s Speech’ remained at the number two spot with a gross of £2.74m. The top films of the weekend had relatively slim declines in collections.
Kids stayed put at school meaning ‘Tangled’ had a quiet week, but rebounded on the weekend strongly to post impressive figures. 31 days after its release, The King’s Speech’s total now stands at a jiffy over£30m.
There were four debuts in the top 10. Top new entry was the Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale starrer, The Fighter, the real-life boxing drama. The movie benefitted from its mid week previews to post a box office opening tally £2.12m.
Sanctum, the caving-disaster movie,loosely based on an actual incident in Australia, opened with £859,000. The movie is the latest successful application of the Cameron-Pace Fusion 3D cameras. The Kate Hudson and Gael Garcia Bernal starrer, A Little Bit of Heaven, grossed £443,000, and Brighton Rock debuted with £353,000.
The movies that made way were The Dilemma, Hereafter, How Do You Know and 127 Hours.
