Danny Dyer Film Run For Your Wife Takes £747

A film starring Danny Dyer and featuring cameos from the likes of Dame Judi Dench took just £747 in its opening weekend, according to box office figures.

Run For Your Wife also stars Denise Van Outen and Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding.

The farce - about a London taxi driver juggling two spouses - was shown in only five cinemas in UK and Ireland.

The underwhelming performance was revealed in figures from the British Film Institute, which also showed that Bruce Willis film A Good Day To Die Hard made £4.5m in the same weekend.

Run For Your Wife is directed by Ray Cooney and adapted from a hit West End stage show of the same name.

The comedy also stars Neil Morrissey and features a host of other cameo appearances, including Ray Winstone, Sir Cliff Richard, Rolf Harris, Lionel Blair and Christopher Biggins.

The trailer for the film describes it as the "Laugh out loud film of the year". However reviews for the film have been scathing.

Total Film describes it as "one long, laughter-averse ordeal studded with D-listers short of panto work".

Danny Dyer is best known for his role in 2004 film The Football Factory, about English football hooliganism.

His latest role could improve its takings this weekend however when it's lined up to be shown in around another 60 cinemas.
