UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 18th - Sunday 20th January 2013...

With much of the UK covered in a blanket of snow and ice this past weekend, UK cinemas were left to feel the chill as takings dropped 36% from the previous weekend, although Les Miserables still managed a healthy £4.4m to retain top spot in the box office chart. With a ten day haul of £17.36m, Les Miserables is now the UK's fourth biggest musical of all-time, but it's unlikely the the Tom Hooper-directed adaptation will put up much of a challenge for the record held by Mamma Mia on £69.2m.

Opening in second, the hotly-anticipated Spaghetti Western Django Unchained amassed £2,801,312 to give Quentin Tarantino his biggest three-day UK opening, while Ang Lee's Life of Pi fell one place to third and is nearing the £25m mark after five weeks in play. Tsunami »
