Ocean’s 8 is this week’s highest new entry and also the brand new number one film in the UK. The overall reception for Ocean’s 8’s has generally been positive with a couple of movie reviews wishing the screenplay had gone a little further in playing to the fabulous female led casts strengths. Entertainment website Variety has a collection reviews from some high profile movie reviewers. In any case it took an impressive £4.3m.
That means Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom falls to number two taking £3.2m whilst horror film Hereditary’s film plot seems to have hit the spot taking £834K in third place.
One entry that is on the up is drama, The Happy Prince starring Rupert Everett, Colin Firth and Emily Watson. This one climbs into the top ten going from eleven to nine.
Rounding off our look at the UK cinema is the classic sci-fi film Blade Runner: The Final Cut which remains at number ten having been on release for 14 weeks under its Secret Cinema release. It managed to take £124K from just one cinema site, oh and its gross to date figures for this current release is now at just over £4.4m.
