2. Dracula Untold – (NE)
1. Gone Girl
Last weeks chart had a very strange number one in the form of Billy Elliot: The Musical Live, this weeks chart however has a very straight forward number one in the form of David Finchers Gone Girl, the film is Finchers most successful movie to date even though Girl with the Dragon Tattoo opened up to better numbers, the reason behind this is down to the fact Girl with the Dragon Tattoo opened over the New Year weekend so it had extra days to take the amount it did.
other new entries in this weeks chart included family drama sequel Dolphin Tale 2 which went in at number seven, Bollywood film Bang Bang and horror adventure film Dracula Untold which opened at number two.
A couple of other films of note that was released on Friday but failed to make any kind of impact included zombie horror comedy Life After Beth which only took just under £50,000, doing much much worse though was Kevin Costners latest film Draft Day which only took £146 from just 3 screens.
Upcoming - This weeks new films are a bit short on the ground, if however your after something new then your films of choice are horror spin off Annabelle from the Conjuring series and dark adventure film The Maze Runner.

The box office top 10 can be a bit of strange place, one week we have no new entries too weeks that one film manages to stay on the top of the chart forever, however this week has managed to throw up something interesting in the form of a live event taking the top spot in the form of Billy Elliot: The Musical Live.
Other new entries in this weeks top 10 went to comedy drama What we did on our holiday going in at number four and dark thriller the Equalizer hitting the number two spot.
Upcoming - a bit of a big week when it comes to new films as four movies will be battling there way to secure a high place in the chart.

Even though the Equalizer failed to make to the top of the chart in the UK in the US it managed just that feat knocking last weeks number one the Maze Runner of the top.
The only other new entry in this weeks top five and the top 10 went to animated adventure the Boxtrolls which could only manage to go in at a low number three.
5. Dolphin Tale 2
4. This is where i leave you
3. The Boxtrolls – (NE)
2. The Maze Runner
1. The Equalizer – (NE)
Last week the Boxtrolls managed to charm the paying public last week and found it’s way at the top of the chart, it seem’s that the charm hasn’t wore off as it spends a second week at number one despite a big challenge from this weeks highest new entry A Walk Among the Tombstone which only missed out on the top spot by just under £20,000.
Other new entries in this weeks chart went to strange documentary 20,000 Days on Earth which see’s us spend a day in the life of musician Nick Cave. The other new entry went to British drama The Riot Club which went in at number five.
Missing out on the top 10 by a huge margin was teen drama thriller The Giver which could only manage a very lonely number 14 spot and failed to even pass the £200,000 mark despite it opening in more than 230 screens.
Upcoming - The Boxtrolls might spend a third week at the top of the chart as this weeks crop of new releases shouldn’t challenge it that much, if however you are after something new to watch then you have thriller The Equalizer, British comedy What we Did on Our Holiday and very dark thriller Maps to the Stars.

5. Dolphin Tale 2
4. No Good Deed
3. This is Where I Leave You – (NE)

1. The Maze Runner – (NE)
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.

Finally something has finally happened in the US chart to stop the downfall that has been going on for the last few weeks, despite the combined takings off all of the top 10 films not reaching over the $100 million mark their was still a little bit of a shake up in the chart.
Two new films took over the top two spots in the form of Dolphin Tale 2 at number two and drama thriller No Good Deed at number one.
5. Let’s Be Cops

3. Guardians of the Galaxy
2. Dolphin Tale 2 – (NE)
1. No Good Deed – (NE)
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.

What a terrible week for the US top 10 as it saw it’s lowest takings in over five years, no new film managed to break the top five so the chart remains pretty much the same as last week except the number five and six movie swapping around.
5. The November Man
4. If I Stay
3. Let’s Be Cops
2. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
1. Guardians of the Galaxy
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.
10. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes – £361,132 – £31,987,494

Nothing much has changed with this weeks US chart as the top two movies, Guardians of the Galaxy and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles had very little competition from any new films, in fact i wouldn’t be surprised if they stay in the same position next week as only one main release is out.
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.
5. As Above, So Below – (NE)

The Inbetweeners reign at the top of the chart has finally come to a end thanks to one of this weeks new entries, as a matter of a fact four new films and one new event went into this weeks top 10 shaking up the chart a little bit.
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.
Upcoming - Not a very strong week when it comes to new films as only two seem to have any chance of going into next weeks chart, so on offer is buddy comedy Let’s Be Cop and horror film As Above So Below.

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.
5. When the Game Stands Tall – (NE)
