US box office top 10 – W/E 06/04/14


Well it seems that the waters have come and washed away Noah from the top of the chart as a super hero has come and fought his way into the top spot in the form of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

This would be the normal spot where i say what other new entries went into this weeks chart however it looks like other films were too scared to go up against Disney latest behemoth so there are no other new films to tell you about.

New Releases – A couple of films will be trying to wrestle the crown away from Captain America and in my opinion only one has a chance.  So the new films on offer this week is sports drama Draft Day, horror Oculus and animated sequel Rio 2.

10. Non-Stop – $1,827,000 – $88,138,000

US box office top 10


Last weeks number one Divergent could only hold on the top spot for one week only as it has been knocked off the top spot by one of this weeks new films in the form of biblical epic Noah.

Only one other new film went into this weeks chart in the form of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s new action thriller Sabotage which went in at a very low seventh spot.

New Releases – despite there being 16 new films to choose from only one movie we attract any attention and that’s the return of Chris Evans as Captain America in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

UK box office top 10 – W/E 24/03/14


Well Need for Speed could not hold on to the top spot for a second week as it has been knocked off by a film that has slowly been creeping up in the chart, that film in question is Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel.

Three new films found there way into the bottom end of the chart not providing that much of a competition on the top five, firstly going in at number eight was drama Labor Day, doing one better by going in at number seven was the second drama of the week A Long Way Down and finally round out the triple bill of drama new entries was Starred Up which went in at number six.

New Releases – It’s a big week for new films and it seems like the box office needs it after it taking a huge 45% loss on the previous week.  So the new films of the week are super hero sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the return of the Muppets in Muppets Most Wanted, action film Legend of Hercules and small British horror The Borderlands

UK box office top 10 – W/E 17/03/14



No matter how hard those Greeks fought they couldn’t hold on to the top spot for one more week as last weeks number one film 300: Rise of an Empire has been replaced by one of this weeks new entries Need For Speed.

The top 10 only saw one other new entry and that went to sci-fi drama thriller Under the Skin which went into the number 10 spot.

New releases – This week see’s very few new films released, in fact none of this weeks new release should cause much challenge on next weeks char, however if you are after something new then you have on offer drama Labor Day, comedy About Last Night and British prison drama Starred Up.
