#WorkoutWednesday UK Box Office

This week I've taken a look at UK Box Office data, downloaded from BFI.

Your task this week is to remake the visualisation above following these points:
  • You should create this visualisation to be dynamic. You should NOT filter the films in the chart to the ones shown. You should create it so that if new data is added, films which are no longer being shown in UK cinemas are dropped from the chart. So if a film has no row of data for the latest week, it should completely disappear from the view.
  • This is a 'rocket ship' chart - each film should start at week 1 so we have a comparative baseline
  • Take note of the title - it also has its own tooltip (a handy little tip I picked up from Andrew Julio - up and coming Tableau Rockstar)
  • The title should be dynamic - the film title should change when a new film becomes the highest grossing

That's it! You can download the data to get started on the challenge. When you're done remember to tweet @EmmaWhyte and @VizWizBI with #WorkoutWednesday to show us how you got on.



  1. Hi Emma,
    Yesterday, I did my first try to make this vizualization. I am stuck with vizualizing other weeks ( from first release to last release).
    Please can you check my work :D
