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
9. Need for Speed – $1,836,000 – $40,839,000
8. Sabotage – $1,908,000 – $8,767,000
7. Mr Peabody and Sherman – $5,300,000 – $102,202,000
6. Muppets Most Wanted – $6,285,000 – $42,142,000
5. The Grand Budapest Hotel – $6,300,000 – $33,380,000
4. God’s Not Dead – $7,726,000 – $32,520,000
3. Divergent – $13,000,000 – $114,029,000
2. Noah – $17,000,000 – $72,341,000
1. Captain America: The Winter Soldier – (NE) – $96,200,000
Last weeks number one The Grand Budapest Hotel could not hold off the might of one Disney movie let alone two so that’s why this weeks it’s no longer top of the chart, that pleasure has been handed to Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
In a trend that has seen all sequels released after The Avengers, Captain America: The winter Soldier saw a huge increase in it’s first weekend takings over it’s previous counterpart. Captain America took a impressive £2.98 million in it’s opening weekend however the sequel has more than doubled that by taking just short of the £7 million.
It’s even more good news for Disney as it also scored the number two spot with Muppets Most Wanted, unlike with Captain America though the Muppets sequel failed to take more than The Muppets movie by nearly £500,000.
One other new entry can be found in the chart and that’s The Legend of Hercules which went in at number nine and did as badly as people and critics expected.
New Releases – With half term fast approaching it’s no surprise to see films mainly aimed at the U/PG/12A market with each one of this weeks main releases falling into that category. So if you are after something new then you have animated sequel Rio 2 (in 3D), Twilight/Hunger Games-esq film Divergent and biblical epic Noah.
10. A Long Way Down – £107,538 – £741,524
9. The Legend of Hercules – (NE) – £189,881
8. Starred Up – £201,822 – £1,062,827
7. 300: Rise of an Empire – £237,879 – £7,449,264
6. The Lego Movie – £323,397 – £31,636,562
5. Need For Speed – £337,943 – £4,399,097
4. Non-Stop – £360,226 – £8,745,562
3. The Grand Budapest Hotel – £870,423 – £7,968,357
2. Muppets Most Wanted – (NE) – £2,214,906
1. Captain America: The Winter Soldier – (NE) – £6,037,850
