UK Box Office 24-26 July

This weekend HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF BLOOD PRINCE broke SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE's hold on the title of biggest grossing film of 2009, reaching £33.07 million on its second weekend out.

ANTICHRIST cracked the Top 10, surprisingly, given its certificate, subject matter and controversy. It certainly did great business at The Dukes. MOON came in at number 9, and given its exclusive run with us has been hugely successful.

Here's the Top 10:

1. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, 586 sites, £5,176,950. Total: £33,070,181
2. The Proposal, 428 sites, £3,249,640. (New)
3. Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, 507 sites, £2,151,251. Total: £25,257,783
4. Bruno, 445 sites, £1,212,641. Total: £13,153,625
5. The Hangover, 354 sites, £687,772. Total: £19,485,350
6. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, 360 sites, £416,579. Total: £25,885,419
7. Public Enemies, 277 sites, £277,353. Total: £6,353,498
8. My Sister's Keeper, 283 sites, £224,320. Total: £5,602,199

  1. See what I meant, earlier, about Moon performing so well - and on only 59 Sites?! I'm stunned to see Antichrist there, too! It does, as you said in your brochure, "demand to be seen". Can't say I'd recommend it as "entertainment" - but the Cinematography was one of the finest examples of the art I've seen all year (second only to Dante Spinotti's remarkable work on Public Enemies.) Who actually goes to see films like The Proposal?! When will Sandra Bullock be offered another "Crash"?
