The results are in for the cinematic world, and it comes as little surprise to anyone that The Lego Movie was 2014’s highest-grossing film at the UK box office, beating such large-scale projects as Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and The Inbetweeners 2 by more than half a million pounds. The second-top film, The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies, is expected to overtake The Lego Movie within the next several weeks, but the title for 2014 belongs forever to Lord Business and Batman.
It has, on the whole, been a disappointing year for British cinemas, with takings down three percent on last year. But there seems to be some light at the end of the tunnel: market experts expect cinema attendance to soar in the next year, with films like the next in the James Bond franchise, Avengers and Star Wars VII being released. So the future is looking bright for British cinemas, particularly with the help of Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig.
