The past weekend saw a number of preview screenings for Boxing Day films. The King’s Speech is sitting comfortably at number seven, with Somewhere at 12 and French rom-com HeartBreaker at 19.

Although there are no Christmas movies to enjoy this festive season there’ll be plenty of cinema-goers this weekend out enjoying the plethora of Boxing Day film treats.
