Grand Budapest Hotel Tops UK Chart

Article excerpt

Fox's comedy drama climbs to number one in its third weekend of release.

With a remarkably small 9% drop, The Grand Budapest Hotel has risen to the top of the UK box office in its third weekend.

Fox's comedy drama checked into top spot with a non-final $2.1m (£1.2m) for $10.4m (£6.3m) to date in the UK. It is the only film in this week's chart to gross over £1m.

Having adding over $3.3m (£2m) over the past seven days, it stands a great chance of becoming director Wes Anderson's best-ever UK performer, above Fantastic Mr. Fox's $14.9m (£9.03m) result.

Fox also provided the week's highest new entry in the form of Starred Up. The hard-hitting prison drama posted a non-final UK debut of $813,000 (£492,804) from its 316 sites, including previews, to chart sixth.

Last week's champion Need for Speed fell down to the grid to second with $1.6m (£984,000) through eOne. The video game adaptation has taken $6.1m (£3.69m) in the UK after two weeks in play.

Released in 55 sites though eOne, Yves Saint Laurent started its UK run with $205,000 (£124,000), including previews. Despite being his third feature, the biopic is the debut UK release for director Jalil Lespert.

12 Years a Slave and Dallas Buyers Club are up to $32.6m (£19.78m) and $8.3m (£5.06m), respectively.WARNER BROS

Having crossed the £30m mark last weekend, The Lego Movie held firm in its sixth weekend of release with $1.34m (£811,000). Warner Bros' critically acclaimed animation is now up to a terrific $51.3m (£31.1m) in the UK.

Also for Warner Bros, 3D sequel 300: Rise of an Empire hacked its way to an additional $1.29m (£783,000) for $11.3m (£6.87m) to date.

Multi-Oscar winner Gravity is up to $53.7m (£32.6m).STUDIOCANAL

Rounding off this week's top five was StudioCanal's Non-Stop, which added $1.2m (£697,128) after dropping just 23% in its fourth weekend. Jaume Collet-Serra's high-concept thriller is now up to $13.4m (£8.1m) and is currently the third biggest grosser for the distributor, behind Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Rush.

Expanding to 73 sites in its second weekend, Under The Skin enjoyed a minimal drop to take $325,000 (£196,769) for a strong ten-day tally of $983,000 (£596,070) through StudioCanal.LIONSGATE
