Well Star Trek Into Darkness could only hold on to the top spot for just one week, in fact it was knocked down to number 3 thanks to the only 2 new films in this weeks chart.
As said above there was only 2 new films in this weeks top 10. First off going in at number 3 was The Great Gatsby, the film by Australian director Baz Luhrmann was his highest grossing debut weekend film. The highest new entry and this weeks new number one went to Fast and Furious 6, not only is it the highest taking Fast and Furious film in it’s debut weekend, it has managed to to take more in it’s first weekend than the whole takings from the first 3 Fast and Furious films combined.
The big films keep on coming and next weeks chart should have two more of them, animated film Epic from the studio behind Ice Age and the wolfpack is back in The Hangover Part 3. It’s not all about the big films though as 2 of my favorite films of all time from the brilliant Studio Ghibli are getting a re-release, both My Neighbour Totaro and Grave of the Fireflies are getting a 25th anniversary release.

Very little has changed in this weeks chart apart from the fact that we have a new number 1 as Iron Man 3 could only hold on to the top spot for 2 weeks.
Only one new film made it’s way into the chart and it’s this weeks new number 1, Star Trek Into Darkness. Star Trek however hasn’t had all it’s own way as not only did the film not meet it’s target of $100 million but it took less than the first Star Trek film from J.J.Abrams in it’s opening weekend.
Next weeks chart should see a bit of a shake up as 3 huge films will be fighting it out to try and knock Star Trek off the top spot. First up on the block is animated film from the people behind Ice Age and Rio, Epic, then we have the 6th in the Fast and Furious films with Fast and Furious 6. The final film of the week see’s the wolf pack back for the last time with The Hangover Part 3.

Since the events of Fast Five, all is good for the families of Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel), Brian O’Conner (Paul Walker), and the members of their crew who worked together to rob $100 million from a drug dealer, living happy extravagant lives in non-extradition countries. Brian and Mia (Jordana Brewster) now have a son and Dom is living with Elena (Elsa Pataky), but Brian admits to Dom that there’s no sense of having a home since they are wanted in the United States and unable to return. Meanwhile, Agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), who promised to chase down the crew, is dealing with a bigger fish – Owen Shaw (Luke Evans), a man similar to Dominic who runs a crew, only with lower morals.

Writer/Director David Twohy brings us the third movie in the Riddick series, with the character finding himself on an alien planet similar to the one he experienced in Pitch Black.
First Impressions: This does look very much like it goes back to the Riddick origins with Pitch Black more than Chronicles Of Riddick. As the latter of those two didn’t perform brilliantly at the box office, it took a bit to get this one off of the ground, hopefully it does well, although some shots (like the one at the end of the trailer) do seem to be direct copies of some from Pitch Black, let’s hope it still manages to be original.
When an alien attack threatens the Earth’s existence, giant robots piloted by humans are deployed to fight off the menace
Impressions: The scale of this movie is insane but i have a slight problem with the trailer, it just looks a little like WWE with robots and monsters in city settings rather than a ring, i will give it a chance as i love Del Toro.
Searching for a missing student, two private investigators break into his house and find collection of VHS tapes. Viewing the horrific contents of each cassette, they realize there may be dark motives behind the student’s disappearance.
*Warning: This trailer contains extreme scenes of violence and gore, it’s NSFW (not safe for work)
Impression: This looks to top V/H/S which i did like and from the red band trailer i can see why, it looks insane and very over the top, i for one can’t wait.
It has finally happened, Iron Man 3 reign at the top of the chart has finally come to a end by one of this weeks new films.
Only 2 new movies managed to get into the top 10 this week, first off going in at number 7 was drama Mud starring Matthew McConaughey. This weeks highest new entry and going straight into the number 1 spot was Star Trek Into Darkness, the good news for the film keeps coming as not only has it managed to take 70% more worldwide in it’s opening weekend than the first movie but it’s also taken more in the UK box office than it’s counterpart.
