UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd March 2013...
Director Tommy Wirkola's Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters topped the UK box office in its first weekend, although it was hardly a fairytale opening for witch hunting siblings Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton, with the action fantasy pulling in just £1,502,782, which included £400k from two days of preview screenings. Had it not been for these, then Disney's Wreck-It Ralph would have retained top spot, pulling in £1.4 million over the three day weekend to leave the CG-animated adventure sitting in second place with a solid £20.4 million after four weeks on screens.
Along with Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, four other new releases cracked the top ten this past weekend: Lasse Hallström-directed romance Safe Haven debuted behind Mama and A Good Day to Die Hard in fifth with £812,460; the Mark Wahlberg / Russell Crowe crime thriller »
