Jurassic Worlds reign at the top of the chart had to come to a end sometime and it was up to those yellow adorable creatures known as the Minions to topple it and that it did.

With the Minions hitting the number one spot you would think that no other new film would want to be released in the same week as they wouldn’t have a chance to crack the top 10 however this is not true, in fact their were two other new films in this weeks chart in the form of indie western Slow West going in at number 10 and dark thriller Knock Knock hitting the number seven spot.

The highest new entry this week though went to event Take That Live which hit the number two spot with takings just shy of £1 million.

Last week Spy was sitting high at the top of the charts laughing away at itself unaware that in the distance would be a huge dinosaur shaped behemoth ready to knock it off it’s perch, that film in question is Jurassic World and not only did it knock Spy off the top spot it did much much better than thought.

It was predicted that Jurassic World would do well however nobody could of guessed that it would do as well as it did, so well that it scored the highest takings for a debut movie this year ahead of Avengers: Age of ultron and Fifty Shades of Grey.

Despite Jurassic World dominating the chart their was still one other new entry in the form of Musical drama London Road which went in at number eight.

Upcoming – When it comes to new films this week it seems that distributors are giving Jurassic World a bit of breathing space, so none of the three main release should challenge the dinosaur epic. On offer is the big screen outing of the Entourage crew, Nicholas Sparks latest romantic drama with The Longest Ride and Ian McKellen steps in the shoes of Sherlock Holmes with Mr Holmes

10. Tomorrowland: The World Beyond, £121,847 from 341 sites. Total: £4,971,372

5. Pitch Perfect 2, £411,269 from 475 sites. Total: £16,800,925

Trailer – The Martian

Plot – During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive.

First Impressions – Ridley Scott hasn’t had a good time of late with his movies as Exodus, The Counselor and Prometheus failing to capture the brilliance of his early career, The Martian however looks like Scott is back on form.

By the looks of things it’s mixing the tension of Gravity and interstellar and if it can pull it off it might be one of the films to look forward too
