UK Box Office 21-23 Aug


This weekend the BASTERDS ruled the box office - for a cumulative take of over £3.5 million, including previews. The only other new entry in the Top 10 was Paramount's DANCE FLICK, which didn't really take off. The rest of the chart is quite dismal, with either a generic family flick or an awful rom-com taking up all the spots.

In the US, BASTERDS was also number one, with Tarantino's biggest opening weekend ($37 million). Whether this is just the QT fanboys coming out on opening weekend or the film has legs, remains to be seen.

1 - Inglorious Basterds - £3,570,000
2- Time Traveler's Wife - £903,917
3- G-Force - £645,000
4- Aliens in the Attic - £627,000
5- Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince - £555,376
6- Dance Flick - £458,000
7 - G.I. JOE - £451, 717
8 - The Ugly Truth - £443,000
9 - The Proposal - £264, 474
10- Orphan - £228,000

Here's how the other new releases did:

Shorts - £139,000 (a major failure for Warners, with the lowest screen average)
I Love You Beth Cooper - £119,000
