Every region had at least two films which attracted an above-average audience, except the East of England which had no top 20 and top UK films with a significant above-average audience. Tables 15.12-15.17 show the nations/regions which had three or more films with a significant above-average audience (except Wales), to give an impression of the range of films that appealed most in each area. UK films attracted above-average audiences in all nations/regions apart from the East of England and Wales. The West and South West had the highest number of releases with a significant above-average audience, with five films including About Time, The World’s End and Despicable Me 2 (Table 15.12).
