Sausage Party is still leading the UK box office charts and if you don't know what Sausage Party is here is the trailer. I have seen this film. You really don't have to see anything but the trailer. But there are still two films I am desperate to see this month, one being Kubo and the two strings - a film made by the team behind Coraline but I am also interested in Don't Breathe - a horror film about some small time crooks who burgle the wrong house.
September has traditionally been Universal’s favoured slot for a Laika animation, with Kubo and the Two Strings following the pattern set in 2012 by ParaNorman and in 2014 by The Boxtrolls. (Coraline, in 2009, was a May release in the UK.) Kids are back at school, and competition from other family films is less intense. ParaNorman debuted with £1.39m, and The Boxtrolls with £1.31m plus £689,000 in previews. Coraline was even stronger, beginning with £1.56m plus £872,000 in previews. Kubo falls below these earlier Laika hits, with a debut of £844,000 from 520 cinemas.
