It was a bit obvious that Sex Tap couldn’t hold on to the top spot for another week and that is the case as animated adventure The Boxtrolls has gone and taken it’s place at the top of the chart and was the only film to take over £1 million this week.
Other new films in this weeks chart included drama thriller starring Phillip Seymour Hoffman in A Most Wanted Mind and British drama comedy centring around the mining community during the mining strike, Pride which went in at number three.
Upcoming - Not a huge week for new releases this week however a lot of smaller films will be trying to chip away at next weeks chart, so on offer is thriller starring Liam Neeson in A Walk Among the Tombstones, British drama The Riot Club, another movie that is trying to take the Hunger Games crown in The Giver and the latest comedy drama from Woody Allen in Magic in the Moonlight.

Lucy’s reign at the top of the chart had to come to a end sometime and this week is the week when the film is no longer sitting at the top of the chart, taking it’s place is the latest comedy starring Jason Segal and Cameron Diaz in Sex Tape.
When it comes to the other new films in this weeks top 10 none of them managed to break the £1 million mark however they did manage to give the chart a little bit of a refresh look.
So other new films in this weeks chart included dark thriller The Guest going in at number eight, light drama The Hundred-Foot Journey which managed to go into the top five hitting the number four spot and thriller Before I Go to Sleep which went in at number three.
Upcoming – This week finally see’s a film that could go in at number one and take more than £3 million lifting the fortunes of the chart as it spent a second week on a slight decline from this time last year, the film in question that could do this is animated adventure The Boxtrolls. Other films on offer include British comedy in the vain of The Full Monty with Pride and one of Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s last films A Most Wanted Man.

Despite a plethora of new films out this weeks nothing could move Lucy from the top spot, the film spends it’s second week at number one and it’s not far off the £10 million mark.
New films that made it into this weeks chart included horror film As Above,So Below at number eight, romantic drama If I stay going in at number six, graphic noir sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For at number four and buddy comedy cop movie Let’s be Cops which hit the number two spot, closely missing out on the top of the chart.
Upcoming - It’s another week of low brow films with none of them having a big punch to them, if you do want to see something new then you have raunchy comedy Sex Tape, drama Before i go to Sleep, sinister thriller in The Guest and the second drama of the week in The Hundred-Foot Journey.

The only new film to make it’s way into the top five was horror film As Above, so Below which went in at number five.

Firstly though on to the movie that has claimed the golden crown of chart success and surprisingly it went to Luc Besson’s new film Lucy which showed that a strong female lead role film can do well.
Other new entries in this weeks top 10 went to Doctor Who Deep Breath which went in at number eight, romantic comedy What If which hit the number six spot, possession horror in the form of Deliver Us From Evil hitting the number five spot and the final new entry went to disaster film Into the Storm which blew it’s way into the number four spot.

It seems that the Guardians of the Galaxy has legs as it has knocked the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles off the top spot to become the new number one, even more good news for the film is that it has become the biggest movie of the summer so far.
So what happened to the new films this week, well on absent movie from the top five was Sin City A Dame to Kill For which could only manage to go in at number eight and has been deemed as a flop.
Their was a couple of new films in the top five they were drama When the Game Stands Tall which went in at number five and romantic drama If I Stay which went in at number three and is one of the new films out this week in the UK.

Well the Inbetweeners have managed to hold off any threat to their chart reign this week by staying on the number one spot despite the threat from the biggest collection of 80’s action heroes ever formed.
Only two new films made their way into this weeks chart, firstly going in at a very low ninth spot was the latest comedy starring Simon Pegg in Hector and the Search for Happiness. This weeks highest new entry went to the third in the Expendables film which went in at a low number three, the reason for this is down to the movie being leaked a few weeks ago online so people have been mainly watching in a way they shouldn’t.

It looks like the strength of the Guardians of the Galaxy couldn’t hold off the might of Will, Simon, Jay and Neil, also known as the Inbetweeners from taking over the top of the charts.
The Inbetweeners opened up to a insane £12.5 million in it’s opening weekend, £2.7 million of that was in it’s opening day making it the highest opening for any film this year and putting the movie on course to beat the takings of the first one which ended with a impressive £45 million in it’s cinema run.
As for other new films in this weeks chart, well their wasn’t any as Planes: Fire and Rescue launched last week in Scotland and Ireland and it only features in this weeks chart thanks to it’s release in the rest of the UK.
Upcoming – Takings for the whole of August are on course for a record thanks to the takings of the Inbetweeners movie and that continue with this weeks set of releases thanks to the 3rd in the Expendables movie, with it getting a 12A certificate it should mean higher takings.

Other new films in this weeks chart included romantic comedy Begin Again which hit the number five spot and the very highly received drama Boyhood which went in at number seven.

The strangest new entry though went to How To Train Your Dragon 2 which went in at number six, the reason why it’s a bit strange it’s down to the film only opening in Scotland and Ireland, there were previews of the film in England and Wales however takings from those previews will not count until when the film get’s it’s official release on Friday 11th.
