uk weekend box office

Source: BFI

The number 1 movie at the UK box office over the last weekend was Mrs Brown’s Boys d’Movie which grossed £4.3m.  I understand the figure was boosted by a strong performance in Ireland. I have to admit I was expecting it to bomb but it has outperformed the likes of Harry Hill and Keith Lemon.

The Fault in Out Stars hung on in there with a gross of £1.7m in its second week of release.  So far the film has raked in £6.7m.  At three was the comedy 22 Jump Street which saw takings of £1.2m to take its total UK gross to £15m.  Maleficent refuses to lie down and entered the chart at four with a weekend box office of £0.8m demonstrating the longevity of family films.  Rounding out the top five was my favourite of the week Chef which despite its low profile and more limited release managed £0.6m.

At the other end of the scale the golfing biopic Seve has bombed in its open weekend managing a paltry £47,000.  The Kevin Coster turkey, 3 Days to Kill, managed £82,000 on its second weekend of release.  Ouch!
