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.
