Prisoners makes it three in a row at the UK box office

UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 11th - Sunday 13th October 2013...

Despite falling short of seven figures, Denis Villeneuve's Prisoners has made it three weeks in a row at the top of the UK chart, with the Hugh Jackman / Jake Gyllenhaal thriller taking the honour and leading a rather poor weekend for UK cinemas with a haul of £969k. Dexter Fletcher's Sunshine on Leith and Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine climbed to second and third respectively, while Filth and Rush rounded out the top five.

In sixth was the highest new entry of the week with the Benedict Cumberbatch-headlined WikiLeaks drama The Fifth Estate claiming fifth with a rather disappointing £502,495, followed by another newcomers, Le Week-End, which took sixth with £324,888. However, both performed better than two other new releases, with both Machete Kills and Romeo and Juliet failing to secure a spot in the top ten.

Third time lucky for Prisoners, and UK box office has its worst weekend of 2013

No film managed to take in an excess of £1m, but Proclaimers musical Sunshine on Leith moves to second place and Le Week-end had a commendable opening

Sunshine on Leith: watch the trailer for Dexter Fletcher's musical – video

The slump

From bad to worse: the expression is aptly applied to the currently becalmed UK box office. The weekend delivered the lowest overall grosses of the past year, with no film achieving takings in excess of £1m. The last time no title managed seven figures was back in June 2012, when a staggered release of Ice Age: Continental Drift saw it occupy the top spot with takings just from Scotland, Ireland and Northern Ireland.

The poor result is partly an anomaly relating to the way the UK box office is tracked and accounted. In fact, new DreamWorks animation Turbo was playing previews on Saturday and Sunday,

Prisoners has topped the UK box office chart for the third week running.

Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal's thriller earned just shy of £1 million to hold off competition from Sunshine on Leith to secure the number one spot.

Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine sits at number three ahead of Filth, while Formula 1 drama Rush rounds out the top five.

Prisoners fends off Filth at the UK box office

UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 4th - Sunday 6th October 2013...

Despite competition from two new arrivals, the Hugh Jackman / Jake Gyllenhaal thriller Prisoners managed to retain top spot at the UK box office, pulling in a solid second-weekend haul of £1.1 million, down just over £250k from its opening last weekend.

Following in second place was the James McAvoy-headling Irvine Welsh adaptation Filth, which debuted with a decent £842,167, while another Edinburgh-centred newcomer, Dexter Fletcher's Sunshine on Leith, claimed third with £770,239.

Rounding out the top five this past weekend are Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine and Ron Howard’s Rush, while in the bottom half of the chart the CG-animation Justin and the Knights of Valour continues to perform well, climbing one spot to seventh after four weekends on screens.

Prisoners locks up top spot again as UK's appetite for change diminishes

After a quiet period at the box office, Britain's favourite movie remains unchanged for the first time since July

• Read Mark Kermode's review of Prisoners

• Read the archive of Charles Gant's UK box office reports

The winner

After a pretty dismal frame at the UK box office, Prisoners, starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal, retained the top spot, with a 17% decline from the previous weekend. It marks the end of a long run where fresh titles conquered the chart summit each week – The Wolverine, The Smurfs 2, Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa, Kick-Ass 2, Elysium, One Direction: This Is Us, About Time, Insidious Chapter 2 and Rush. Prisoners is the first film to land consecutive number one chart placements since Monsters University back in July.

Jackman has now spent seven weeks at the UK chart summit, with Prisoners, The Wolverine and Les Miserables.

Prisoners has captive audience on weak weekend at UK box office

The winner

Late September, rarely a robust time for UK cinemagoing, continues the seasonally becalmed pattern. Overall, the 27-29 September session represented the third worst weekend for box office in the past year. Given that the previous frame delivered the second worst, it's clear just how sluggish the market is right now.

The only film delivering a weekend gross in excess of £1m was Prisoners, starring Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal. Aside from the previous weekend, when Rush held on to the top spot with £1.34m, Prisoners' £1.37m tally is the lowest for a No 1 film since Dredd landed

Rush takes pole position at the UK box office

UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 20th to Sunday 22nd September 2013...

After debuting in second place last week, Ron Howard's Rush has taken pole position at the UK box office in its second weekend, pulling in £1.34 million to give the Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl-headlined F1 biopic a solid £4.67 million to date. Rush swapped places with last week's top film Insidious: Chapter 2, the James Wan-directed horror falling to second with £1.1 million, while White House Down and About Time were unchanged in third and fourth.

Down in fifth is the first new entry of the weekend, with director Oliver Hirschbiegel's biopic Diana opening to a rather soft £623,051, no doubt due in part to the horrendous reviews for the film, which sees Naomi Watts as the People's Princess. The supernatural action-comedy R.I.P.D. followed in seventh with £506,521, while the only

'Carrie', 'Black Nativity' and Gandolfini's 'Animal Rescue' in Today's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

Today's ratings bulletin includes a bit of a surprise by including Bullhead director, Michael R. Roskam's follow-up, Animal Rescue, a new crime-drama featuring an impressive cast including Tom Hardy, James Gandolfini, Noomi Rapace and Matthias Schoenaerts. No surprise it's rated R and I've heard some buzz about a particular scene Gandolfini has in the film opposite Hardy that may be worth the price of admission alone. Additionally is a PG-rating for Kasi Lemmons' Black Nativity and a strong R rating for Kimberly Peirce's remake of Carrie starring Chloe Moretz and Julianne Moore. Also looking down the list I see Takeshi Kitano's sequel Beyond Outrage, which, considering the lackluster original, doesn't seem all that necessary, but Magnolia is going to give it to us and then I thought the PG-rating for Christmas for A Dollar was pretty funny considering it's for "some mean behavior", whatever that means. The complete bulletin is listed below.

Insidious 2 scares its way to the top of the UK box office chart

Horror sequel Insidious: Chapter 2 opened atop the UK box office chart this past weekend, with the James Wan-directed chiller pulling in a solid £2,877,742 - almost double the debut of its predecessor, which opened in third place behind Thor and Fast & Furious 5: Rio Heist back in May 2011.

Insidious 2 wasn't the only new entry to make an impact, with Ron Howard's F1 racing biopic Rush taking second place on the podium with £2,099,308, followed by the Channing Tatum / Jamie Foxx action thriller White House Down in third with £1,184,338. Meanwhile Justin and the Knights of Valour took fifth behind last week's number one About Time, with the Spanish animated adventure grossing £831,011.
