UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 4th to Sunday 6th January 2013...
It's a new year, but there's a familiar face atop the UK box office chart as Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey edged out The Impossible to claim the first box office title of 2013 and take first place for the fourth weekend in a row - the only film of 2012 to do so. Nevertheless, The Impossible put up a strong fight, posting an opening haul of £4,034,470, which was just £40k short of The Hobbit (albeit with three days of preview screenings included), while Ang Lee's Life of Pi continued to perform well in third, adding another £3.35m for a total of £17.86m to date.
