The Turtles are making a habit of not staying at the top of the chart for very long as it has been knocked off the top spot for a second time by this weeks only new film in the chart. The film in question is Christopher Nolans latest mind bending Sci-Fi action film Interstellar, even better though for the film is that it’s the highest taking debut movie since the Inbetweeners 2.
As said above their was no other new entries in this weeks chart however there was one movie that did something really rare and not only climb up the chart but also take more in it’s second week than it’s first, that film in question is British drama Mr Turner.

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.

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.

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.
