The BBC Films feature What We Did On Our Holiday has now grossed $6 million (£3.9 million) at the UK box office in the seven weekends since its release on September 26th.

What We Did On Our Holiday
From the creators of the hit BBC comedy series Outnumbered - What We Did On Our Holiday is a heart-warming, uplifting comedy for all the family.
It's a hilarious journey through an unforgettable family holiday as a couple attempts to keep their impending divorce secret from their extended family.
Doug (David Tennant) and Abi (Rosamund Pike) and their three children travel to the Scottish Highlands for Doug’s father Gordie’s (Billy Connolly) birthday party, where it’s soon clear that when it comes to keeping their secret under wraps their children are their biggest liability.
From nine year old Lottie’s notebook to keep track of the lies so she remembers which ones to tell, to four year old Jess’s perverse attachment to a brick named Norman, for their parents a week has never seemed such a long time.
But it’s middle child Mickey and his granddad’s shared passion for Vikings which gives rise to the most far-reaching and unexpected consequences. When a day at the beach turns to tragedy, the children take matters into their own hands.

The film is due for release in Australia, New Zealand, the Emirates, Spain and Germany and a distributor for the USA is currently being sought.

The UK box office was topped this week by the newly opened Interstellar, with Mr. Turner starring Timothy Spall moving up to second place, while Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles dropped to third.
