UK box office top 10
Well nothing could move OZ the Great and Powerful off the top spot as he has managed to hold on for another week, not that he had much competition as this weeks 10 films were down 51% on the films this time last year.
There were 3 new films in the top 10 however none of them made much of a splash The lowest of the new entries went to the remake of Red Dawn which could only manage to hit the number 8 spot, doing slightly better by going in at number 6 was The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. This weeks highest new entry though went to thriller Welcome to the Punch which hit the number 3 spot.
One quick note one of last weeks new entries, action film Fire with Fire only went in at number 33 when it came out however on it’s second week of release it did even worse by dropping all the way down to the number 77th film.
