UK Weekend Box Office – 19th – 21st September 2014


First the good news.  The Box Trolls spent a second week at the top of the UK cinema chart after a weekend gross of £1.33m.  In a good sign for film fans everywhere it beat out the limp wristed A Walk Among The Tombstones that opened at number two with £1.31m.

Now for the bad news.  The Guest has disappeared from the charts after just a couple of weeks on release.  It’s a humerous take on the mystery man at the door genre.  The Giver that I saw over the weekend has bombed spectacularly.  There has next to no marketing support, it has had a relatively limited release and only took £0.18.  It could be one and done for this admirably ambitious young adult flick that pushes the boundaries further than its more successful predecessors.
