UK Weekend Box Office – 22nd – 24th August


After a couple of weeks of dominance The Inbetweeners 2 has been toppled at the top of the UK box office.  The new new sci-fi film Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson went in at number 1 with a weekend gross of £3m beating out the teenage comedy which managed £2.3m.  Lucy has been splitting audiences somewhat but I am in the love the film camp so I am happy to see its performing well.

The top three was rounded out by Guardians of The Galaxy which had takings of £1.25m,  The second best performing new release was Into The Storm the so-so disaster film that just topped the £1m mark.

I was happy to see the truly awful What If open weakly at number 6 in the chart with weekend takings of £0.59m.

It’s another busy week at the cinema as I am planning to watch four films over the weekend.  All donations welcome as it’s starting to become an expensive August.
