‘Pixels’ Tops UK Box Office Earning Over £2. 5 Million | Film News

 

Despite flopping at the US box office so magnificently that it led many critics to claim that “Adam Sandler’s career as a movie star is over“, Pixels has proved there is no such thing as bad publicity – and has debuted at number one at the UK box office with £2,660,772, much to the misery of everybody with a good taste in movies. Of course, the Pixels opening weekend is largely attributed to preview screenings the previous weekend – take these out of the picture and the film has actually debuted at number four, behind Inside Out returning to number one, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation staying at number two and new entry The Man From U.N.C.L.E at number three.

 

Elsewhere in the top ten, Trainwreck debuted at number five, making £931,881 over the weekend; not a blockbuster take, but pretty impressive considering Amy Schumer isn’t a household name in the UK (although it is still depressing she has been beaten by a comic dinosaur like Sandler). Fantastic Four had a fantastic fall from number one to number 6, whilst Simon Pegg/Monty Python comedy Absolutely Anything limped to ninth place, as audiences realized they would rather watch absolutely anything else. Sadly, that included Pixels.

Hey, I'm Alistair! I've recently graduated from university with a pretty good journalism degree- but more importantly, I've been writing about movies for close to two years, both on my own blog (cinemole.wordpress.com) and over at Film Inquiry too! I'm currently working at a cinema until I fulfil my dream of being paid to write - which means unlimited free movies for me!
