Last week the Boxtrolls managed to charm the paying public last week and found it’s way at the top of the chart, it seem’s that the charm hasn’t wore off as it spends a second week at number one despite a big challenge from this weeks highest new entry A Walk Among the Tombstone which only missed out on the top spot by just under £20,000.

Other new entries in this weeks chart went to strange documentary 20,000 Days on Earth which see’s us spend a day in the life of musician Nick Cave.  The other new entry went to British drama The Riot Club which went in at number five.

Missing out on the top 10 by a huge margin was teen drama thriller The Giver which could only manage a very lonely number 14 spot and failed to even pass the £200,000 mark despite it opening in more than 230 screens.

Upcoming – The Boxtrolls might spend a third week at the top of the chart as this weeks crop of new releases shouldn’t challenge it that much, if however you are after something new to watch then you have thriller The Equalizer, British comedy What we Did on Our Holiday and very dark thriller Maps to the Stars.

It looks like the strength of the Guardians of the Galaxy couldn’t hold off the might of Will, Simon, Jay and Neil, also known as the Inbetweeners from taking over the top of the charts.

The Inbetweeners opened up to a insane £12.5 million in it’s opening weekend, £2.7 million of that was in it’s opening day making it the highest opening for any film this year and putting the movie on course to beat the takings of the first one which ended with a impressive £45 million in it’s cinema run.

As for other new films in this weeks chart, well their wasn’t any as Planes: Fire and Rescue launched last week in Scotland and Ireland and it only features in this weeks chart thanks to it’s release in the rest of the UK.

Upcoming – Takings for the whole of August are on course for a record thanks to the takings of the Inbetweeners movie and that continue with this weeks set of releases thanks to the 3rd in the Expendables movie, with it getting a 12A certificate it should mean higher takings.

Other films on release are the expansion of animated football adventure The Unbeatables and the latest comedy starring Simon Pegg in Hector and the Search for Happiness.

Over the pond in the US those hero’s in a half shell, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles found enough martial arts skills to beat off the Guardians of the Galaxy to find itself as the new number one film.

Other new entries in this weeks top 10 went to dance sequel Step Up All In which went in at number 6, drama The Hundred-Foot Journey at number four and disaster film Into the Storm at number 3.

Trailer – Cybernatural

While video chatting one night, six high school friends receive a Skype message from a classmate who killed herself exactly one year ago. A first they think it’s a prank, but when the girl starts revealing the friends’ darkest secrets, they realize they are dealing with something out of this world, something that wants them dead. Told entirely from a young girl’s computer desktop, CYBERNATURAL redefines ‘found footage’ for a new generation of teens.

Impressions: Early indications on this film are very positive and from the trailer it looks like a interesting movie, yes this kind of thing has been done before yet when you use things like Skype it makes it feel more real.

It’ll be interesting to see if the film is any good when it does get released

Well those animated birds of Rio 2 couldn’t hold on to the top spot for a second week as the good old captain managed to wrestle away the top prize as Captain America: the Winter Soldier is now back at number one.

This weeks chart was devoid of new films, in fact three new movies decided to battle it out within the bottom half of the chart.  Firstly going in at number eight was insane martial art action sequel with the Raid 2, one spot above that was dark comedy drama Calvary at number eight and the final new entry went to horror film The Quiet Ones which went in at number five.

New Releases – I doubt Captain America will be sitting on top of the chart next week as it has stiff competition for Spiderman with the release of Amazing Spiderman 2.  A couple of other films you might be interested in including British comedy The Love Punch, and thriller Locke.
