America this weekend sees no move at the top as The Martian retains the number spot for another weekend.
A very low grossing weekend has The Martian taking just $11.4 million to retain the box office which now after 5 weeks of play has made $182.8 million in America .
Highest new film of the week is Bradley Cooper's new film Burnt which enters at number 5 with a very lacklustre $5 million.
Faring even worse is Sandra Bullocks new film Our Brand is Crisis which enters at number 8 this week with a $3.4 million opening.
Last new entry of the week is at number 12, the imaginatively titled Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse which manages $1.7 million for the weekend.
It had all the cast reunited from the first Fast and Furious movie and this excited movie goers so much that not only did the film make over $600 million dollars worldwide and become a DVD/Blu-ray smash hit but it was the most pirated film in 2011 according to torrentfreak.com
Fast Five starring Vin Diesel was downloaded more than 9 million times, in second place was The Hangover Part II and in third place was Thor. The argument for Pirated movies has been a long and intense once, but all 3 of these films were big hits at the cinema with each one taking over or close to half a billion dollars in box office takings.
I'm not sure what this list tells us, I'll let you make up your own minds, cinema attendances were down this year but were in the middle of a world wide financial crisis, personally I think that on the whole people who will see the film in cinemas will do and then maybe down load the movie, people who download the movie and don't see it in cinemas would never anyway. This is an interesting list so for your pleasure take a look at the top 10 most downloaded films of 2011 and by all means let me know your thoughts.
|2||The Hangover Part II||8,840,000||$581,464,305|
|5||I Am Number Four||7,670,000||$144,500,437|
|9||The King's Speech||6,250,000||$414,211,549|
|10||Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2||6,030,000||$1,328,111,219|

Despite rumblings from many a commentator about maybe Colin Firth not getting an Oscar, or Natalie Portman being pipped at the post by Annette Benning, in the end the Oscar evening went as predictably as you could imagine with just about everyone predicting all the major winners.
Colin Firth and Natalie Portman got their statues, while Christian Bale and Melissa Leo (both for The Fighter) got awarded. Maybe the most unpredictable award for the night was best film and director, most thought that The Social Network and its director David Fincher might clinch it, but The Kings Speech and director Tom Hooper took home the glory.
Toy Story 3 deservedly gained the best animated feature Oscar and in maybe a surprise move Banks diod not get the best documentary Oscar, so no stunt appearance, instead that went to Inside Job, a film from director Charles Ferguson about the financial crisis of 2008.
In all I suppose it was a predictable night, but one where all the Oscars went to deserved winners, something which rarely happens. The awards season is now over, a season which I used to get very excited about, and although I still look at the winners with interest I don't get nearly as excited as I did 10 years ago, maybe Oscar is no longer relevant?
