The BFI (British Film Institute) has released its 2011 statistical yearbook as it inherits the responsibility for such data from the UK Film Council. There is a vast amount of information in the book (which actually covers 2010), but the headlines include:
- Toy Story 3 was the biggest UK box-office hit in 2010, grossing £73m.
- Box office receipts were up 5% to £988m, but cinema visits were down 2%.
- 'British' films (broadly defined, as ever) accounted for 24% of the market.
