Last weeks number 1 Fast and Furious 6 wasn’t fast or furious enough to hold on to the top spot for more than one week as it had stiff competition from 2 new big films and one of them managed to take it’s place.

3 new films went into the top 10, first off going in at a surprising number 7 was small British horror film The Moth Diaries.  Into the top 3 and at number 3 was animated film Epic which hasn’t done as well as people would of expected.  This weeks highest new entry went to the final outing for the wolfpack in The Hangover 3, like the release in the US the film as really under preformed as the second film in the series managed to take more than £10 million in it’s opening weekend, part 3 only managed to take just under £6 million, £4 million less than the last one in the series.

New Releases – It’s another one of those small weeks for new release, just enough time for you to take a deep breath before the big releases surface again.  So the films on offer this week are comedy movie The Big Wedding, thriller The Purge and horror film from Neil Jordan, Byzantium.

Well as you can probably guess Iron Man 3 was victorious for the 2nd week despite have a 58% drop in takings and nearly getting knocked off the top spot by one of this weeks new entries.

Only 2 new films made their way into the top 10, first off going in at number 4 was comedy film Tyler Perry Presents Peebles.  This weeks highest new entry went to The Great Gatsby which managed to hit the number 2 spot and took a very impressive $51 million, if it was released any other week over the year then it would of gone in at number 1.

When it comes with new films trying to find their way into the chart there is only 1 film of note and that’s Star Trek Into Darkness, if any film can knock Iron Man 3 off the top it is Star Trek.

10. OZ the Great and Powerful  -$802,000 – $229,985,000

9. Mud – $2,343,000 – $8,363,000

8. The Big Wedding – $2,500,000 – $18,288,000

Well as predicted last week Pain and Gain could only hold on to the top spot for just one week and the only new entry of the week has not just gone and smashed it off the top spot but it has managed to take more than the rest of the top 10 combined.

Only 1 new film found it’s way into the chart this week and it doesn’t take a idiot to guess that it went to Iron Man 3 which went straight into the number 1 spot.  The film took a huge $175 million the second highest debuting film of all time behind The Avengers which managed a insane $207 million in it’s opening weekend.

I doubt that any of next weeks new films will be able to knock off Iron Man 3 from atop the chart however both The Great Gatsby and comedy film Tyler Perry Pepples will give it a try.

As predicted last weeks number 1 Olympus Has Fallen only managed to make it one week at the top of the chart as the only new film out this week smashed it off it’s perch.

You can probably guess what film went straight into the number 1 spot but just encase you don’t know it was Iron Man 3 by taking just under £14 million in it’s opening weekend but how well did it do against the other films in the series and ultimately against The Avengers.

Well first off this is the highest taking Iron Man film out of the 3 out doing the second in the series by £5 million pounds, the good news continues for the film as it has out done The Avengers with it’s global takings by more than $10 million however it’s not all good news, the film didn’t manage to take more than the Avengers in the UK as that managed just under £16 million in it’s opening weekend beating Iron Man 3 by nearly £2 million.

Oh and there was one more other film out this week just encase you forgot in the form of The Look of Love which went into the number 7 spot

10. OZ the Great and Powerful – £70,191 – £14,987,064
