artisanal film reviews | by maryann johanson

ugly weekend at the U.K. box office…

…as no film earns more than £1 million at the box office.

This has apparently not happened in two years, since back in October 2008, according to Charles Gant at the Guardian’s Film blog.

Maybe it’s sort of a positive that no film that wasn’t new took much of a drop over the previous weekend: the biggest decline among the top 10 was Grown Ups, at No. 10, which dropped only 17 percent in its sixth week. Every other film was just about flat.

So hardly anyone went to the cinema last weekend in the U.K., but it wasn’t any fewer no ones than the week before.

I feel like on both sides of the Atlantic, the multiplex experience is becoming increasingly separated from the movie-consuming experience. What if they gave a movie and nobody came? I guess it would go right to DVD and on-demand…
