UK Top 10 Film Charts 5 October 2018 – Did Johnny English Do Enough To Claim Top Spot?

I’ve already taken a look at the American Box Office yesterday but what of the UK Top 10 Film Charts? Did for instance the new Johnny English film beat Sony Picture’s superhero film Venom to claim the number one spot? Or maybe the Lady Gaga / Bradley Cooper film impressed audiences. Well let’s take a look at the top 10 UK film charts for the 5 October 2018.

Let me start by answering the question of which film claimed top spot on the film charts this week. It probably comes as no surprise to see superhero film Venom enters at number one with box office takings of £8m from 556 cinemas. What’s more it did so after being shown in 33 less cinemas than Johnny English Strikes Again which claimed second place on the chart taking a respectable £4.11m. At three is yet another new entry with that Lady Gaga / Bradley Cooper romantic, musical drama, A Star is Born. This one managed to take £4.1m from 526 cinema locations.

Last week’s top film, Night School starring Kevin Hart slips to number five with box office revenue of £860k from 448 locations. Meanwhile The House with a Clock in its Walls falls from two to four and cinema takings of £900k from 534 cinemas.

Is there anything else worth mentioning? Well Glenn Close’s The Wife seems to have left audiences less than enthusiastic as to drops from seven to ten after only its second week on release. That said it is only on release in 130 cinemas and has taken so far to date £924k which I believe to be good business, I’m not sure on its budget but worldwide it’s said to have taken over £10m which surely means a reasonable profit has been made.

Now is the time to make the switch to Blu-ray

Trust me if you are still watching and purchasing DVD’s now really is the time to change. In fact you probably already have the high definition television. You can pick up a standard Blu-ray player for as little as around £55 and the picture quality upgrade is mind-blowing. Add to that that many older titles are being fully restored removing those annoying speckles and dirt marks whilst massively improving the resolution. For the price of three or four DVD’s you could be enjoying your favourite films with a vastly superior viewing experience.
