the revenant

Star Wars reign at the top of the chart had to come to a end sometime however nobody thought that gruelling action drama The Revenant would be the film to knock it off the top spot.

Normally a movie that’s not part of a franchise struggles a little to make a big impact on the chart however it seems that people wanted to see Leonardo Di Caprio go through hell.

This weeks chart did feature another three new entries including Opera event Les Pecheurs De Perles going in at number 10, amazing gripping drama Room hitting the number seven spot and Rock spin-off Creed going in at number three.

Upcoming – It’s a bit of a hectic week this week when it comes to new films as their is a lot to offer including comedy sequel Ride Along 2, the latest teen Sci-Fi thriller The 5th Wave, comedy drama based on the 2008 financial crisis The Big Short and drama Our Brand is Crisis.

star wars

It seems that nothing can move Star Wars the force Awakens off the top of the chart with it spending another week at number one.

In more good news for the film it has now become the highest grossing film in UK history taking more than Spectre in it’s entire run.

Upcoming – Could next weeks chart have a new number one, these new films will be having a try, those films in question are Alejandro G Inarritu’s The Revenant, gripping drama Room and a reboot of the Rocky series with Creed.
