Well it seems that Insidious chapter 2 scared off it’s audience as it no longer reigns supreme at the top of the chart, that accolade has gone to last weeks number two Rush which is now the new king of the chart.

A pretty bad week for new release as none of them managed to make any kind of impact on the top 10.  Firstly going in at a low number eight was thriller The Call starring Halle Berry, hitting the number seven spot was Men in Black rip off R.I.P.D.  This weeks highest new entry went to drama Diana, the film got a major roasting from critics so it’s a wonder that it managed to go in at number five.

New Releases – Again it’s another quiet week when it comes to new films as you only have two too choose from, thriller Prisoners and a second thriller in the form of Runner Runner.
