The average UK independent market share for the 13-year period was 6.5% with an upward trend from the low of 3.4% in 2003. Table 1.8 compares the number of UK and non-UK films released in the UK and Republic of Ireland in 2013 across several gross box office bands. There were two UK films (Les Misérables and Gravity) in the over £30 million gross box office band compared with six non-UK films (Despicable Me 2, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Frozen, Iron Man 3, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Monsters University). In the second box office band there were two UK films compared with four non-UK titles, and three UK films in the third box office band compared with 17 non-UK titles. In each of these top three bands, the number of films as a percentage of all releases was similar for UK films and non-UK films. Overall, UK films made up 21% of all releases earning over £10 million in 2013, compared with 29% in 2012. The proportion of UK films in the lowest box office band was 64% in 2013, a similar percentage to 2012’s 63%. 0 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13
