Well those animated birds of Rio 2 couldn’t hold on to the top spot for a second week as the good old captain managed to wrestle away the top prize as Captain America: the Winter Soldier is now back at number one.
This weeks chart was devoid of new films, in fact three new movies decided to battle it out within the bottom half of the chart. Firstly going in at number eight was insane martial art action sequel with the Raid 2, one spot above that was dark comedy drama Calvary at number eight and the final new entry went to horror film The Quiet Ones which went in at number five.
New Releases – I doubt Captain America will be sitting on top of the chart next week as it has stiff competition for Spiderman with the release of Amazing Spiderman 2. A couple of other films you might be interested in including British comedy The Love Punch, and thriller Locke.

The final trailer for the latest X-Men movie, with the original director who started the franchise with X-Men and X2 – Bryan Singer – returning to bring the story full circle with Wolverine being sent back in time from the future to prevent a war.
First Impressions: The two previous trailers didn’t do a lot to quiet concerns over the X-Men franchise, thankfully this does, and frankly now looks like Bryan Singer finally has his comic book mojo back after the lacklustre Superman Returns. X-Men: Days Of Future Past is released in the U.K. on 22nd May.

Two best friends see their trip of a lifetime take a dark turn when one of them is struck by a mysterious affliction. Now, in a foreign land, they race to uncover the source before it consumes him completely.
Impression – Looking like a cross between REC and Chronicle this film looks very interesting, i know it’s another shaky cam found footage movie and we don’t need any more of them however if it is a cross between the two movies i have said then this might turn out to be good.
A man seeks out his exact look-alike after spotting him in a movie.
Impression: From the director of last years excellent Prisoners, Denise Villeneuve comes a really strange tight thriller that looks very impressive, early word from critics are saying that it has one of the most shocking endings of a film in the last five years and this has peeked my interest.
Yes i know the trailer is a bit bare but if you pay attention to whats going on it starts to creep on your skin which is a big thumbs up in my opnion
Well it seems that nobody could dislodge the Captain from atop of the chart despite stiff competition from one this weeks new release in the form of Rio 2, so Captain America: The Winter Soldier holds on to the top spot for a second week.

Well the captain couldn’t hold on to the top spot for two weeks as Captain America: The Winter Soldier is now no longer reigning supreme at the top of the charts that accolade has gone to animated sequel Rio 2.
In even more good news for Rio 2 it seems that a lot more people are interested in the animated sequel than it’s counterpart, the original film could only manage £1.5 million in it’s opening weekend including preview’s, this time the sequel has nearly doubled that by taking just shy of £3 million.
Looking at the rest of the chart and we see another three new films and one new event taking over the top 10. La Boheme: Met Opera was streamed to over 160 screens and managed to enter the chart at a respectful number Seven. the other new entries in the chart included the Richard Ayoade comedy The Double which went in at number eight, the latest film to try and take the Hunger Games crown, Divergent hit the number four spot and Darren Aronofsky’s take on Noah which went in at number three.
New Releases – A lot of new films are out this week and each one of them has a chance to make some kind of impact on next weeks top 10. Out for releases is horror from the masters at Hammer Films, The Quiet Ones, dark drama with a hint of comedy in Calvary, over the top martial arts fight-fest sequel The Raid 2, small sci-fi drama The Last Days on Mars and animated adventure Khumba.
10. Non-Stop – £189,815 – £9,150,776

Well it seems that the waters have come and washed away Noah from the top of the chart as a super hero has come and fought his way into the top spot in the form of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
This would be the normal spot where i say what other new entries went into this weeks chart however it looks like other films were too scared to go up against Disney latest behemoth so there are no other new films to tell you about.
New Releases – A couple of films will be trying to wrestle the crown away from Captain America and in my opinion only one has a chance. So the new films on offer this week is sports drama Draft Day, horror Oculus and animated sequel Rio 2.
