Well those animated birds of Rio 2 couldn’t hold on to the top spot for a second week as the good old captain managed to wrestle away the top prize as Captain America: the Winter Soldier is now back at number one.

This weeks chart was devoid of new films, in fact three new movies decided to battle it out within the bottom half of the chart.  Firstly going in at number eight was insane martial art action sequel with the Raid 2, one spot above that was dark comedy drama Calvary at number eight and the final new entry went to horror film The Quiet Ones which went in at number five.

New Releases – I doubt Captain America will be sitting on top of the chart next week as it has stiff competition for Spiderman with the release of Amazing Spiderman 2.  A couple of other films you might be interested in including British comedy The Love Punch, and thriller Locke.

10. The Lego Movie – £196,050 – £32,512,022

9. The Grand Budapest Hotel – £332,145 – £9,872,335

8. The Raid 2 – (NE) – £454,150

7. Calvary – (NE) – £571,489

6. Muppets Most Wanted – £602,305 – £5,086,623

5. The Quiet Ones – (NE) – £681,305

4. Divergent – £1,003,202 – £4,013,006

3. Rio 2 – £1,559,793 – £6,763,364

2. Noah – £1,591,916 – £6,763,364

1. Captain America: The Winter Soldier – £1,782,201 – £14,618,819

Well the captain couldn’t hold on to the top spot for two weeks as Captain America: The Winter Soldier is now no longer reigning supreme at the top of the charts that accolade has gone to animated sequel Rio 2.

In even more good news for Rio 2 it seems that a lot more people are interested in the animated sequel than it’s counterpart, the original film could only manage £1.5 million in it’s opening weekend including preview’s, this time the sequel has nearly doubled that by taking just shy of £3 million.

Looking at the rest of the chart and we see another three new films and one new event taking over the top 10.  La Boheme: Met Opera was streamed to over 160 screens and managed to enter the chart at a respectful number Seven.  the other new entries in the chart included the Richard Ayoade comedy The Double which went in at number eight, the latest film to try and take the Hunger Games crown, Divergent hit the number four spot and Darren Aronofsky’s take on Noah which went in at number three.

New Releases – A lot of new films are out this week and each one of them has a chance to make some kind of impact on next weeks top 10.  Out for releases is horror from the masters at Hammer Films, The Quiet Ones, dark drama with a hint of comedy in Calvary, over the top martial arts fight-fest sequel The Raid 2, small sci-fi drama The Last Days on Mars and animated adventure Khumba.

10. Non-Stop – £189,815 – £9,150,776

9. The Lego Movie – £264,574 – £31,993,600

8. The Double – (NE) – £281,794

7. La Boheme: Met Opera – (NE) – £374,522

6. The Grand Budapest Hotel – £611,999 – £9,152,006

5. Muppets Most Wanted – £897,395 – £3,513,823

4. Divergent – (NE) – £1,767,295

3. Noah – (NE) – £2,511,397

Last weeks number one The Grand Budapest Hotel could not hold off the might of one Disney movie let alone two so that’s why this weeks it’s no longer top of the chart, that pleasure has been handed to Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

In a trend that has seen all sequels released after The Avengers, Captain America: The winter Soldier saw a huge increase in it’s first weekend takings over it’s previous counterpart.  Captain America took a impressive £2.98 million in it’s opening weekend however the sequel has more than doubled that by taking just short of the £7 million.

It’s even more good news for Disney as it also scored the number two spot with Muppets Most Wanted, unlike with Captain America though the Muppets sequel failed to take more than The Muppets movie by nearly £500,000.

One other new entry can be found in the chart and that’s The Legend of Hercules which went in at number nine and did as badly as people and critics expected.

New Releases - With half term fast approaching it’s no surprise to see films mainly aimed at the U/PG/12A market with each one of this weeks main releases falling into that category.  So if you are after something new then you have animated sequel Rio 2 (in 3D), Twilight/Hunger Games-esq film Divergent and biblical epic Noah.

10. A Long Way Down – £107,538 – £741,524

9. The Legend of Hercules – (NE) – £189,881

8. Starred Up – £201,822 – £1,062,827

7. 300: Rise of an Empire – £237,879 – £7,449,264

6. The Lego Movie – £323,397 – £31,636,562

5. Need For Speed – £337,943 – £4,399,097

4. Non-Stop – £360,226 – £8,745,562

3. The Grand Budapest Hotel – £870,423 – £7,968,357

2. Muppets Most Wanted – (NE) – £2,214,906

1. Captain America: The Winter Soldier – (NE) – £6,037,850

Well Need for Speed could not hold on to the top spot for a second week as it has been knocked off by a film that has slowly been creeping up in the chart, that film in question is Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel.

Three new films found there way into the bottom end of the chart not providing that much of a competition on the top five, firstly going in at number eight was drama Labor Day, doing one better by going in at number seven was the second drama of the week A Long Way Down and finally round out the triple bill of drama new entries was Starred Up which went in at number six.

New Releases – It’s a big week for new films and it seems like the box office needs it after it taking a huge 45% loss on the previous week.  So the new films of the week are super hero sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the return of the Muppets in Muppets Most Wanted, action film Legend of Hercules and small British horror The Borderlands

No matter how hard those Greeks fought they couldn’t hold on to the top spot for one more week as last weeks number one film 300: Rise of an Empire has been replaced by one of this weeks new entries Need For Speed.

The top 10 only saw one other new entry and that went to sci-fi drama thriller Under the Skin which went into the number 10 spot.

Well nothing could knock The Lego Movie off the top spot as it has spent a second week at number one however it didn’t have much of a challenge.

The reason why there was no challenge towards The Lego Movie is down to the fact that there is no new entries in this weeks chart, this is the first time it has happened since 2006.
