UK New Film Releases Week 30: 24 July – 30 July 2009


  • New British Feature Films (Fiction) Released in 2009 – 49 [20% of total film releases]
  • Total Film Releases in the UK in 2009 – 251

The UK  film release schedule for the week commencing 24 July 2009 is:

  • Charles Dickens’s England (UK) Documentary
  • Just Another Love Story (DEN)
  • Once Upon A Time In The West (IT/USA) Reissue
  • Antichrist (DEN/GER/FR/SWE/IT/POL)
  • The Blues Brothers (USA) Reissue
  • Skin (Anthony Fabian, 2008, UK/S. AFR) #49 British Release 2009

We approach a half-century of British feature film releases in the UK for 2009 and maintaining a very healthy and surprising fifth of all films released in Britain this year.  A curious week with hardly any films that will receive a wide nationwide release – a couple of reissues, foreihn language films and a British documentary about Dickens (what the Dickens?). Skin is a UK/South African co-production, and in the tradition of worthy, quality cinema, based on ‘a true story’ – how genes can trouble the racial categories that people try to enforce in racist regimes. It is only showing in two cinemas including the ICA who are distributing the film. A nice surprise is that it is earning more per site than Bruno – but then it is on 270 fewer screens.
