The Hit List: This Week’s Hottest Entertainment in Israel (Week 34, 2011)

Here’s another weekly report of the biggest songs, movies and TV Shows in Israel: In Movies, ‘The Smurfs’ continues to rule at the box office this weekend as well (Israelis LOVE The Smurfs!) as grossing almost $2.5 million in its 2 weeks running, which is a lot for the Israeli market. ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ makes a nice entry into #2, pushing the most successfull comedy of the year, ‘Bridesmaids,’ out of the top 5.

In Music there’s a new entry straight into #1 on the domestic chart, Idan Yaniv, the new prince of Mediterranean music, with his self-titled song, pushes Adir Getz down one slot to number 2. On the International music scene there’s no change at the top, aside from Adele’s new single, ‘Set Fire to the Rain,’ which has peaked at number one in Belgium, Poland and the Netherlands and is now going up to number 2 in Israel, aiming to get to the top spot next week. Also, ‘The Voice’s judges, Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera, are making their way to the top 5 this week with ‘Move Like Jagger.’

Finally, we received the top 5 TV shows on cable, and it’s no surprise that ‘House’ is in the lead after a few members of its cast paid a visit to the Holy Land earlier this year, but it is a surprise to see 2 Showtime dramas in the top 5.
