Well The Croods has finally had it’s day in the sun as it wasn’t able to hold on to the top spot for another week, instead one of this weeks new entries has taken it’s place,

3 new films entered this weeks chart, first off going in a much higher than expected number 4 was drama The Place Beyond the Pines, this will come as a big surprise to the distributors as the film was only released in a limited number of screens.  Into the top 3 and we find comedy parody film Scary Movie 5 sitting at number 3, it’s not all good news though for the film as it has taken less than the fourth entry in the series in it’s opening weekend.  This weeks highest new entry and the new number one went to sci-fi film Oblivion, the film managed this feat by being released 2 day’s earlier than it’s rivals netting itself a nice extra £1.7 million during it’s 2 extra days.

Well it seem’s that the Croods is a much more stronger film that first anticipated as it has managed to hold on to the top spot for a second week despite a bit of competition from one of this weeks new entries.

The top 10 is awash with new films this week, 5 in total.  Hitting the number 10 spot is French mystery thriller In the House, one spot above that at number 9 is the 3D re-release of Finding Nemo.  Opening the top 5 this weeks was The Host based on a book by Twilight’s Stephenie Meyer’s, going in at number 3 was trippy thriller Trance from director Danny Boyle.  This weeks highest new entry went to action (if you could call it that) sequel GI Joe: Retaliation which hit the number 2 spot.

If you are wondering where both Stolen and Welcome to the Punch are well they both fell a huge 86% to take a average screen total of only £250 each.

Trailer: Dark Skies

A thriller centered on an alien disguised as a human and a boy tagged for abduction.

Impression: Another one of those films billed ‘from the producers of’ Paranormal Activity and Insidious and too me it looks a little bit weak, that might not be the case when it comes out but i hold very little hope for this film
