Uk Box Office 5-7 March

I bet the three chains are thanking their lucky stars they didn't go ahead with that boycott of ALICE. With a spectacular £10+ million and a whopping screen average of over £13K, Tim Burton's reinterpretation of Carroll's classic is a hit of Avatar-like proportions (well, let's not get ahead of ourselves). 3D anyone? Over 70% of its income came from stereoscopic screenings, despite it playing only on 324 3D screens vs 430 2D ones. The people have voted, Mr. Kermode, they want 3D.

1- ALICE IN WONDERLAND (£10,471,895)
2- AVATAR (£905,926)
3- THE CRAZIES (£673,337)
4- THE LOVELY BONES (£660,854)
5- THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG (£381,761)
6- FROM PARIS WITH LOVE (£381,761)
7- LEAP YEAR (£364,610)
8- PERCY JACKSON & THE LIGHTNING THIEF (£359,067)
9- VALENTINE'S DAY (£295,890)
10- A SINGLE MAN (£218,166)

  1. That's a hell of a lot of money - and it wasn't even Half-Term or anything. So, when are you going 3-D, then? When the films themselves are at least equal to the "immersive experience"? I, for one, won't be holding my breath...
    Fincher, Del Toro, Tarsem, Gilliam, QT, Lynch(!?!)... THOSE are Directors whose 3-D Movies I'd like to see...

  2. Regarding Alice and 3-D... I'm presuming you've seen this - but I'm posting the link anyway:
