UK Box Office: 30 November – 2 December – Gambit, Anyone?

rise-of-the-guardians-01

So Gambit didn’t stick around for long, then…

This week’s top ten is pretty much the same as last week with only The Master and Jab Tak Hai Jaan (last week’s nine and ten, respectively) dropping out to make room for Rise Of The Guardians and Great Expectations. But last week’s number five, Gambit, drops out completely which can’t spell good news for Michael Hoffman.

Skyfall reclaims the number one spot from those pesky vampires, but eOne can hardly complain after what the last installment has raked in. And yep, Nativity 2: Danger In The Manger is still clinging on for dear life.

Check out the top ten below: Continue reading

The 40th Annual Annie Award Nominations

AnnieAwards__121203160948

It’s alliteration a gogo for the announcement of the 40th Annual Annie Awards.

Brave, Wreck-It Ralph and Rise Of The Guardians lead the nominations, with Hotel Transylvania and ParaNorman not too far behind. It’s a strong set of nominations for Disney, with John Carter and The Avengers also lurking on the sidelines.

As for who to put your money on in regards to the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature, well, I think it’s pretty safe to say it’s a two-horse race between Brave and Wreck-It Ralph.

Check out the full list of nominations (minus anything TV-related) below: Continue reading

UK Box Office: 23 – 25 November – It’s All About eOne

It’s bye bye Neeson and hello Christmas as Taken 2 finally drops out of the top ten and improv sequel Nativity 2: Danger In The Manger gives eOne another top three entry alongside the currently immovable Breaking Dawn – Part 2.

Oscar hopeful Silver Linings Playbook embarrasses Firth and Diaz, while David Ayer’s cop flick makes a humble entry sandwiched between Bens Stiller and Affleck.

Elsewhere, Skyfall is still standing strong on home turf, with Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted apparently never wanting to disappear, and Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master finally passing the £1 million mark.

UK Box Office: 16 – 18 November – Vampires In The Hizzle

There’s a massive surprise number one film in the UK this week – lol jk, Twilight’s out. The final (cue party poppers for some) installment in the saga knocks Skyfall off its top spot, with the newest addition to the Bond franchise currently standing at an incredibly impressive £83 million. Well played, Mendes.

Three Indian offerings also break the top ten and Madagascar 3 and Hotel Transylvania prove they have sticking power well after the half term break. And, though it may be sitting just outside the top five, it’s great to see The Master riding high in its first week on wide release.

UK Box Office: 9 – 11 November – Apparently There’s A New Bond Film Out

Naturally, Sam Mendes’ Skyfall is still dominating its home turf, spending a third week at the top. Ben Affleck’s Argo debuts in third position and it’s great to see Jacques Audiard’s Rust And Bone hanging on in the top ten. As expected, Liam Neeson and Adam Sandler’s star power keeps Taken 2 and Hotel Transylvania sticking around for a little longer than many would have liked…

The Great Trailer Debate – Week 6

What a week! With the insane amount of Awards and nominations over the last two days it’s taken me a little longer than usual to post this. But this is definitely a nice break for me and one that doesn’t include having to write out Michel Hazanavicius’ name over and over and over…… The sad thing is that I can write his name without thinking now. Anyway, back to the trailers. This week Nadine and I (check out her blog here) bring you The Five-Year Engagement, The Lorax, The Darkest Hour, The Cabin In The Woods, Lockout, This Means War, Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close (TRAILER OF THE WEEK), The Three Stooges, The Iron Lady, The Lucky One, What To Expect When You’re Expecting and Battleship. Wowzer. Next week brings us something that makes me want to (and I probably will) cry – The Dark Knight Rises. Continue reading
