This week at the top of the box office, Emma Thompson goes backstage on the latest Christmas romance, Last Christmas. Thompson co-wrote and co-produced this seasonal favourite, which brought in a total of $2,202,916 across 393 screens in its first weekend, for a screen average of $5,605. Pretty good innings, for a film that Rolling Stone’s David Fear rather colourfully described as: 'Incredibly, shockingly, monumentally bad. The kind of bad that falls somewhere between finding a lump of coal in your stocking and discovering one painfully lodged in your rectum.' Ouch.
