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.

The other big release of the week is Transformers: Age of Extinction which has been on previews for six days so when it is counted in next weeks chart it should easily go straight to the top of the chart as early indications are showing that it took £4.7 million from only two days of it’s preview six days.

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

7. Godzilla – £223,407 – £16,876,460

6. Belle – (NE) – £407,120

5. Oculus – (NE) – £413,578

4. Edge of Tomorrow – £744,496 – £5,688,796

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.

UKTop10-film-reel-flag-edges

That’s right you have read the title correctly, this week I’ve decided to do the top 11 films, more on that a little bit later.

We have a new number one putting the reign of The amazing Spiderman 2 to a end, so give a round of applause to comedy Bad Neighbours which has found it’s way to the top spot thanks to it taking over £5.5 million in it’s preview 6 day’s before official going on releases, overall takings for the film were just under £8.5 million putting behind Ted as the second highest grossing debut 15 rated comedy.

Into the rest of the chart and the reason why I’ve done a top 11 is to include The Wind Rises, now i know i’m being slightly biased however with this being the last movie by Hayoa Miyazaki it needs to be mentions, plus the film only opened up on a small 48 screens and it still managed to take a healthy £199,598.

Other new films and one event in the chart include comedy drama Frank which went in at number 10, opera even La Cenrentoia: Met Opera which hit the number eight spot and thriller Sabotage which hit one place higher at number seven.

New Releases – Only one film of any note is out this week and that’s Gareth Edwards take on the monster movie Godzilla.

7. Sabotage – (NE) – £300,521

6. Tarzan – £440,643 – £1,611,347
