That’s right you have read the title correctly, this week I’ve decided to do the top 11 films, more on that a little bit later.

We have a new number one putting the reign of The amazing Spiderman 2 to a end, so give a round of applause to comedy Bad Neighbours which has found it’s way to the top spot thanks to it taking over £5.5 million in it’s preview 6 day’s before official going on releases, overall takings for the film were just under £8.5 million putting behind Ted as the second highest grossing debut 15 rated comedy.

Into the rest of the chart and the reason why I’ve done a top 11 is to include The Wind Rises, now i know i’m being slightly biased however with this being the last movie by Hayoa Miyazaki it needs to be mentions, plus the film only opened up on a small 48 screens and it still managed to take a healthy £199,598.

Other new films and one event in the chart include comedy drama Frank which went in at number 10, opera even La Cenrentoia: Met Opera which hit the number eight spot and thriller Sabotage which hit one place higher at number seven.

New Releases – Only one film of any note is out this week and that’s Gareth Edwards take on the monster movie Godzilla.

11. The Wind Rises – (NE) – £199,598

10. Frank – £202,747

9. Captain America: The Winter Soldier – £252,908 – £19,095,843

8. La Cenrentoia: Met Opera – (NE) – £285,597

7. Sabotage – (NE) – £300,521

6. Tarzan – £440,643 – £1,611,347

5. Pompeii – £505,186 – £2,230,156

4. Rio 2 – £551,655 – £13,289,929

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.
