UK box office top 10 – W/E 05/05/14

UKTop10-film-reel-flag-edges

Well it seems that nothing can move The amazing Spiderman from the top spot as it spends it’s third week at number one, only two other films this year have managed to do that, The Wolf of Wall Street and The Lego movie.

There were three new films in this weeks chart none of them however made much of a impact on the top 10, so much so one of Paul Walkers final films Brick Mansions failed to make the chart, it could only manage the number 12 spot.

The new films in this weeks chart were British comedy thriller Plastic going in at number 10, animated adventure with Tarzan at number four and Paul W.S.Anderson tells his version of Pompeii at number three.

New Releases – It’s a bit of a strange week this week as one film would of been out for seven days however it is classed as a new release because it’s box office takings only count towards next weeks chart and that’s comedy Bad Neighbours.

On to the normal new releases of the week and you have on offer thriller staring Arnold Schwarzenegger in Sabotage, comedy drama Frank starring Michael Fassbender and the most important film of the year Hayoa Miyazaki’s final film for Studio Ghibli, The Wind Rises.

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.
