UK Box Office 14-16 August
This weekend, time-travelling weepie THE TIME TRAVELLER'S WIFE made it to the number one spot in an otherwise quiet time at the box office. With all the big kids' movies out of the way and many families away on holiday, only one film in the Top 10 made over £1 million during the weekend.
INGLORIOUS BASTERDS made an impressive £770,000 in two days of previews, which bodes well for the Tarantino-directed film when it opens next Friday. The Dukes opened SIN NOMBRE, which unfortunately only gathered £55,000 on 23 prints. This fantastic film just got lost in the family-dominated landscape. Summer arthouse releases are always a tough sell.
