Box office report (26th-28th January)

  1. Darkest Hour (£2,672,022)- This film is still getting thousands of people to buy tickets, so it must be doing something right, however for me it was a bit clunky and tiresome. I thought the cast’s performances were great lead out strongly by Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill, but that is about as far as my pleasure extended.
  2. Coco (£2,315,450)- This is a joy of a film. Many say animation is not made to be seen on the big screen, however with this film I couldn’t disagree more the beautiful world created and explored on the screen are truly mesmerising it’s just too bad it couldn’t retain its place at number one.
  3. Maze Runner: The Death Cure (£2,247,915)- This film was a real flop. I loved the books and appreciate that many people love the films, but for me this film was just rubbish saved only slightly with a solid ending. I appreciate that many people disagree and already I have had a number of people come up to me and say how much they enjoyed the film. But they are wrong, so don’t watch it.
  4. The Greatest Showman (£2,042,450)- This film is very enjoyable. It has good songs that are catchy and the singalong showings of the film sell out almost as soon as they go on sale. I did not love it, however I certainly didn’t loathe it and it was feel good film great for a Sunday afternoon.
  5. Early Man (£2,020,653)- STOP MOTION ANIMATION IS THE BEST. I really enjoyed this film, it had me laughing all the way through. The voice actors were great, the story was enjoyable and little comedic set pieces throughout the film really worked. Well done Aardman.
  6. The Post (£1,604,133)- I haven’t seen this film but have been desperately trying too. All the showings in my area seem to only start at 9pm but when I get a chance I will definitely watch this film.
  7. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (£1,249,691)- This is a great film and I’m pleased it’s still hanging in the top 10 because it really deserves too. There is a perfect mix of dark humour and real serious subject matter. I think had this film been made by someone with less respect over the topics they were attempting to deal with it could’ve been crude and nasty but this was great.
  8. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (£1,219,880)- This was much better than I imagined it could have been and was mainly carried by its humour. The people transported into different bodies idea really worked and I’m glad I went to see it as it was a really enjoyable experience.
  9. Downsizing (£1,131,687)- I haven’t seen this film but as it has divided opinion so dramatically I feel I must watch it to give my take on it.
  10. Padmaavat (£850,386)- I have to admit I haven’t really heard anything about this film and there haven’t been any showings of it in my area. But, I will attempt seek it out and try to watch it if I can.
