Finally the hell spawn that is Mrs Browns Boys D’Movie has been knocked off the top spot after spending a few weeks at the top of the chart, the film replacing it is the fourth in the Transformers series with Transformers: Age of Extinction.

In more good news for the latest Transformers film it has becoming the highest opening for a film this year beating X-Men: Days of Future Past and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it has also become the highest opening for any of the Transformers films.  It’s not all good news though as if you take out the amount the film took in previews then it only took £3.1 million in it’s official opening weekend putting it in 10th place overall.

Other new films in this weeks chart included romantic comedy Begin Again which hit the number five spot and the very highly received drama Boyhood which went in at number seven.

New releases – A couple of new films are out this week that will be trying to make some kind of impact on next weeks chart, one should be next weeks number one and the other should hopefully get nowhere near the summit.  So on offer is kids film Pudsey the Dog: The Movie and the highly rated sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
