Cinema-going in November was slightly slower than October with a total of 13.7m admissions (as opposed to 17.3m last month), but significantly down on the same month in 2002 when admissions were 17% higher, thanks to the releases of Harry Potter & The Chamber of Secrets and Bond: Die Another Day.
Although it was only released on November 21st, Richard Curtis’ Love Actually [+see also:
film profile] managed to become the second biggest film of the month, taking over £15m in just two weekends. The biggest film of November was predictably the third and final instalment of the Matrix sci fi trilogy, The Matrix Revolution with a £16.7m gross in total.
Finding Nemo continued to attract large audiences in November, taking another £8m and making it the number one film in the UK so far this year, with a total box office of £36.7m by the end of November.
Taking the seventh and 8th positions in the 2003 Top ten box office from January until November, after Hollywood blockbusters, are Calendar Girls with a £20.2m gross and Johnny English [+see also:
