I’m through with making bets on the charts – with the big commotion that Ice Age 4 and Madagascar 3 caused. But I guess it shouldn’t have been much of a shocker that The Amazing Spider-Man took top position. Meanwhile in The States, Ice Age 4 defeated Spidey for second week win.
|1||THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN|
|2||ICE AGE 4|
|6||SNOW WHITE & THE HUNTSMAN|
|7||WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU’RE EXPECTING|
|8||ROCK OF AGES|
|9||FRIENDS WITH KIDS|
|10||THINK LIKE A MAN|
As the only release of the week, The Amazing Spider-Man just caused an incremental shove down the chart with Men in Black 3 serving as only casualty, of course this could also be on account that at the moment, the circuit is stuffed with 3D movies. I’d expect Web-head to stay at pole position for the next week but on the 27th the eagerly awaited Dark Knight Rises hits screens which would surely keep Spidey grounded (to be honest I’m surprised that Amazing Spider-Man wasn’t released earlier to avoid this little debacle). What frustrates me is how Think Like a Man is Still on the top 10, theoretically it should have dropped out this week but it still manages to hold on.
We’ve got an interesting weekend ahead as four films hit the big screen. Act of Valour – a group of marines try to take out the evil terrists, Magic Mike – stripper extraordinaire “Mike” introduces a down-on-his-luck dropout to his exotic lifestyle, In the Land of Blood and Honey – Angelina Jolie’s driectorial debut, and Lucky – a film set in South Africa that follows a recently orphaned boy as he travels to Johannesburg to get an education. You can look forward to those reviews as the week roles on (except for Jolie’s film as I haven’t seen it).
