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.

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.

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.

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.

Well Transformers: Age of Extinction didn’t stay at the top of the chart very long, despite it taking just over £11 million in it’s opening it has gone and dropped nearly £10 million in it’s second week, putting the film down to the number third spot.

This weeks highest new entry and new number one went to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Taking just under £9 million in it’s opening weekend it’s takings are much higher than Rise of the Planet of the Apes in it’s opening weekend.

Other new entries in this weeks chart went to kids film Pudsey the Dog: The Movie which went in at number seven, hitting the number five spot is the first of two live events with Andre Rieu’s 2014 Maastricht Concert and the second event was Money Python: O2 London which hit the number four spot taking over £1 million.

Finally the hell spawn that is Mrs Browns Boys D’Movie has been knocked off the top spot after spending a few weeks at the top of the chart, the film replacing it is the fourth in the Transformers series with Transformers: Age of Extinction.

In more good news for the latest Transformers film it has becoming the highest opening for a film this year beating X-Men: Days of Future Past and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it has also become the highest opening for any of the Transformers films.  It’s not all good news though as if you take out the amount the film took in previews then it only took £3.1 million in it’s official opening weekend putting it in 10th place overall.

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.

New releases – A couple of new films are out this week that will be trying to make some kind of impact on next weeks chart, one should be next weeks number one and the other should hopefully get nowhere near the summit.  So on offer is kids film Pudsey the Dog: The Movie and the highly rated sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

With it being a very strange week for new films as two of them on the big screen at the moment are still in preview mode, Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie didn’t have very much challenge from any new film so it has managed to hold on to the top spot for a second week.

The only new film in this weeks chart went to the Melissa McCarthy starring comedy Tammy which went in at a low fifth spot and taking under £500,000.

Well very little changed with this weeks chart with the top 4 films from last week still staying in the same spot, this could be down to more people interested in the world cup.

With that in mind 22 Jump Street remained as the number one film taking nearly as much as the entire run of the first film in the series.

Their were new entries in this weeks chat, three in fact however none of them managed to make any kind of impact, so much so that the entire takings of the three new films came short of the £1 million mark, what’s even more alarming is the fact that the films showed on a overall total of 981 screens taking just £962 per screen.

The three new films in question in this weeks chart are true life drama Devil’s Knot which went in at number nine, period drama Belle which hit the number six spot and horror film Oculus which founds it’s way to a very low number five and becoming the lowest placing top release since The Quiet Ones back in April of this year.

New Releases – Another quiet week is on the cards so don’t be surprised to read that next weeks overall takings are down for a second time.  So if you do want something new to see instead of watching the football then on offer is romantic drama The Fault in Our Stars, thriller 3 Days to Kill, film adaptation of musical Jersey Boys and thriller The Art of the Steal.

10. Rio 2 – £83,650 – £15,095,099

9. Devil’s Knot – (NE) – £122,892

8. A Million Ways to Die in the West – £167,143 – £3,003,120

UK box office top 10 – W/E 09/06/14

UKTop10-film-reel-flag-edges

 

Well Maleficent could only hold on to the top spot for just one week that’s to the comedy duo of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum returning with 22 Jump Street which has gone straight into the number one spot.

In more good news for 22 Jump Street the movie has managed to triple what the original took, it’s normally the rule of thumb when it comes to sequels, usual they take around double what the original has however this has been more successfully than most.

Only two other new entries in this weeks chart, firstly going in at number nine was critically panned Grace of Monaco, the only other new entry went in at number seven which was the special event to commemorate the events of World War 2 with D-day 70 years on.

New Releases – Not a big week when it comes to new films, on offer is horror Oculus, real life drama with Devil’s Knot and period drama Belle.
