As predicted last week in obvious form Ice Age could not hold on to the top spot for more than a week as the only new entry has not only just kicked it off the top spot but it has smashed it out of the water.

Only 1 new entry in this weeks chart and it could only be The Dark Knight Rises which has broken a record for taking the most any 2D film has taken in it’s début weekend.  One other little fact is that if you total up the amount that every film in the top 10 has taken apart from The Dark Knight Rises then you will come to a figure just over the $60 million, The Dark Knight Rises has managed to out sell the rest of the top 10 by just over $100 million extra.

US Box Office top 10

Not much has changed with this weeks chart apart from the top where last weeks number 1, The Amazing Spider-man has been knocked off it’s perch by the only new entry in the chart.

Like i said only 1 new film made it’s way into this weeks top 10 and that’s the return of the Ice Age series with Ice Age 4: Continental Drift however it didn’t do as well as expected of it with it not even going past the $50 million mark.

10. Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted – $3.500.000 – $203.732.000

9. Moonrise Kingdom – $3.662.000 – $32.427.000

8. Katy Perry: Part of me – $3.775.000 – $18.588.000

New Releases – If Ice Age manages to hold on to the top spot next week then i’m never watching another film again as their is only 1 new film out this week and that’s The Dark Knight Rises.  My prediction for The Dark Knight Rises is that it will take more than $130 million in it’s first weekend.

US Box Office Top 10

No doubt was cast over whether Ted could hold on to the top spot for more than a week as it was going up against one of this years biggest films and unfortunately one week was enough for the foul mouthed teddy bear.

3 new films graced this weeks chart, first off going in at a low number 8 was musical; documentary Katy Perry: Part of me, doing better than that and showing that Taylor Kitsch can act is Savages however it was that web slinger Spider-Man that went straight into number 1 with a few day’s extra haul over the rest of the new entries.

10. To Rome With Love – $3.502.000 – $5.621.000

New Releases – Only 1 film of any kind of note is out this week that will be trying it’s best too flush that spider down the toilet in the form of Ice Age 4: Continental Drift. 

US Box Office Top 10

The top 10 has had it’s biggest shake up for a few weeks as last weeks number 1 Brave couldn’t hold on to the top spot for more than a week with a surprise entry at the top taking it’s throne.

4 new films graced this weeks chart, first off going in at number 10 was People Like Us, Tyler Perry’s latest film Madea’s Witness Protection hit the number 4 spot, going in at a high number 2 spot was stripper drama/comedy Magic Mike however the movie that has provided the biggest surprise of the week went to Ted with it going straight in at number 1 and taking more than double of what was expected of it.

10. People Like Us – (NE) – $4.306.000

9. Snow White and the Huntsman – $4.405.000 – $145.591.000

8. Moonrise Kingdom – $4.873.000 – $18.406.000

7. Prometheus – $4.925.000 – $118.262.000

6 – Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter – $6.000.000 – $29.034.000

4. Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Witness Protection – (NE) – $26.350.000

3. Brave – $34.011.000 – $131.685.000

2. Magic Mike – (NE) – $39.155.000

1. Ted – (NE) – $54.100.000

New Releases – I predict that Ted will only be at number 1 for one week as The Amazing Spider-man should knock it off the top spot and i also predict that it should take just over $100 million.  You also have the pick of two other films the first one being another one of those 3D concert films this time with Katy Perry, your other choice of the week is violent drama/thriller Savages.
