The Dark Knight Rises keeps The Lorax from number 1

Robert Hyde

The Dark Knight Rises
The Dark Knight Rises hold steady at the top as Dr Seuss The Lorax gives no serious competition for the top spot.

A second week at the top for Batman and another strong one as £7,275,558 is added to the total gross bringing it to £30,551,765, after 10 days of release it's already the second highest grossing film of the year.

In comparison, the highest grossing film of 2012 so far, Avengers Assemble, had made £29,851,680 after 10 days, so Batman is just a shade in front.

Dr Seuss The Lorax was released back in March in the US and did big numbers, maybe a little disappointing then is the UK release which only manages £1,853,294, although it has got Batman, good weather and the Olympics to content with. It is the highest new film in the UK this week.

This time last year Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2 retained the top spot, now with a gross of £55,520,549 while Captain America The First Avenger was new at number 2 with £2,981,590.

Five years ago The Simpsons Movie was the highest new film with a very impressive £13,626,853 taking it to the top beating out the first Transformers movie and knocking Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix to number 3.

Ten years ago Austin Powers in Goldmember was the big new film at the top and the highest new film with £5,585,978 knocking Scooby Doo down to number 2.
