Rapman’s movie Blue Story closes in on £4m at the UK box office.
Three weekends into its cinema run, and Rapman’s movie directorial debut Blue Story continues to sit in the top five at the UK box office. Whilst most of the headlines have moved on from the film, the movie itself has quietly continued to accrue a sizeable audience, adding £385,000 over the weekend.
The low budget British movie has now grossed £3.7m since it debuted last month, matching the success of Noel Clarke’s hit, Brotherhood. In further news, the movie is now also on the BAFTA shortlist for its upcoming film awards, in the ‘outstanding debut by a British writer, director or producer’ category.
It’s been quite the journey for the film, that continues to play in cinemas around the UK. Look for it to gross £4m for Paramount Pictures in the UK over the next week – and hopefully that’ll spark some fresh investment in further British productions from the studio.
