UK Box Office 23-25 Oct

There's not stopping UP: for the third week it remains number one, for a total of nearly £20 million. Ouch. The annual torture porn fest SAW took £1.7 mil and Wes Anderson's FANTASTIC MR FOX took a modest £1.5 million, proving how difficult a sell this thing was.

1- UP (£3,793,587)
2- SAW VI (£1,736,289)
3- FANTASTIC MR FOX (£1,506,367)
4- COUPLES RETREAT (£932,170)
5- CIRQUE DU FREAK: VAMPIRE'S ASSISTANT (£798,644)
6- IMAGINARIUM OF DR PARNASSUS (£614,717)
7- THE INVENTION OF LYING (£367,310)
8- ZOMBIELAND (£323,815)
9- FAME (£218,110)
10- CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS (£142,482)

The other films that opened this week:

THE COVE - £17,956
GOODS: LIVE HARD, SELL HARD - £35,362
JOHNNY MAD DOG - £6439

  1. Maybe TFMF will pick up some business during Half Term? But would you chose it over Up 3-D if you were part of the traditional Disney/Pixar Crowd? Have you seen the criticism of the McDonald's/TFMF tie-in over at the online website of your favourite newspaper? Didn't know that Disney/Pixar had stopped all that...
    Pretty woeful Top Ten, overall. Roll on Proper Movie Season...

  2. Fair enough. I just think that no matter where you position Mr Fox it was always going to be a tough sell. Wes Anderson fans are lukewarm, families are lukewarm - it's the same problem faced by Where the Wild Things Are (but that Warners cleverly solved in America) let's see how they fix it here.

  3. Now I'm REALLY excited about WTWTA in a way that I could never be about TFMF. It's Duke-bound, right?
