UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 20th November to Sunday 22nd November 2015…
As expected, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 opened atop the UK box office chart this past weekend, pulling in £11,255,566, including almost £2 million of preview screenings.
While it’s certainly an impressive bow, Mockingjay – Part 2 was down on its predecessor, which debuted with £12.6 million last year, as well as the second instalment Catching Fire, which opened with £12.2 million.
Two other new entries also cracked the top ten, with the Kate Winslet drama The Dressmaker opening in seventh with £235,968, followed by thriller The Perfect Guy down in tenth with £102,924.
Meanwhile, despite being knocked from top spot, Spectre continued its climb up the list of the highest-grossing movies here in the UK, and is currently third behind Skyfall (£103 million) and Avatar (£94 million).
