Dear God no! It can’t be … surely not … what the fu … I’m afraid it’s happened. I was celebrating last week at the apparent rapid demise of TMNT or TURD. Sadly the film has returned to the top of the charts over the weekend with a gross of £1.42m. Horror film Ouija opened this weekend in second place with takings of £1.37m. The top three was rounded off by Brad Pitt’s WW2 tank drama Fury after a weekend gross of £1.25m.
Nightcrawler had a solid opening, especially for a indie movie, after a weekend gross of £1m, putting it sixth in the chart. Sadly Horns (I’ll post my review tomorrow night), which I enjoyed a great deal, couldn’t break into the top 10 with weekend takings of £0.39m. My local cinema won’t be showing it for a second week. To put it into perspective Mr Turner it took more than twice the money despite being in a lot less cinemas. I like being contrarian.
