Monsters University reign at the top of the chart has finally come to a end thanks to one of this weeks new entries.

Two new films made there way into this weeks top 10, first off going in at number nine was Frances Ha the indie comedy drama from Noah Baumbach.  This weeks highest new entry went to The Wolverine which found it’s way to the top of the chart, it’s not all good news though for the film as X Men Origins: Wolverine managed to take nearly £2 million more in it’s opening weekend.

New Releases – to say that a lot of new films are out this week is a bit of a understatement, so if you want to go to the cinema to see something new then you have comedy film The Heat, horror film from James Wan The Conjuring, Studio Ghibli returns to the big screen with From Up on Poppy Hill, Nicolas Winding Refn teams up again with Ryan Gosling in Only God Forgives, Bruce Willis is back with the gang in Red 2 and those blue annoying little things are back in The Smurff’s 2.

Well there was very little change with this weeks chart especially when it comes to the number one spot with Monsters University holding on to the top spot for a second week and only suffering a 16% drop off on takings.

Two new films entered this weeks top 10, first off going in at number nine was thriller starring Nicolas Cage, The Frozen Ground.  The only other new entry in this weeks chart went to the final part in the cornetto trilogy The Worlds End which went in at number two, the film did nowhere near what was expected of it taking much less than Hot Fuzz and Paul which both took more than £5 in there opening weekend.

New Releases – Not very much out for a second week in a row and that’s why the overall takings are down again on this time next year, so let’s hope The Wolverine the only new film this week can turn that around.

10. This is the End – £74,270 – £3,951,760

9. The Frozen Ground – (NE) – £89,515

8. Man of Steel – £134,325 – £29,558,035

Well the sun seem’s to be affecting the takings at the box office as this week saw a 42% drop off from the same time as last year, however it will come as no surprise to hear that Despicable Me 2 is no longer reigning supreme at the top of the chart.

A total of three new films entered this weeks chart, firstly the only none big movie to make an impact on the top 10 was Bollywood film Bhaag Mikha Bhaag.  On to the big two films of the week and going in at number three was Pacific Rim, unfortunately the film is doing as well as was expected of it, with a budget of over $170 million a lot was riding on this to do well and early indications are showing that this could be a loss for Warner Bros.  the highest new entry and this weeks new number one went to the disappointing animated prequel Monsters University however it took nowhere near what Monsters INC took back in 2002 where it grossed just over £9 million in it’s opening weekend.

New Releases – This week we are short on new films too choose from as only two films want to put up a little fight, so if you want something new at the cinema then you have thriller The Frozen Ground and the third and final part in the cornetto trilogy The Worlds End.

10. The Bling Ring – £76,540 – £348,269

9. Bhaag Mikha Bhaag – (NE) – £89,348

Well the Man of Steel has now been proven that he can be stopped as he now no longer holds the title of the number one movie thanks to it being blown away by one of this weeks new films.

Three new films entered this weeks chart.  First off going in at number five and taking a very low £206,000 was Hummingbird starring Jason Statham, this is his lowest taking movie since his career kicked off before then it was Blitz that only managed to take £260,000 in it’s opening weekend.  The next highest new entry went to comedy movie This is the End featuring actors Seth Rogan and James Franco opened at number 4 but slightly behind what it should of taken.

The highest new entry this week went to Despicable Me 2 which opened up to a huge £14 million thanks to taking nearly £6 million in it’s preview weekend so it managed a huge £9 million in it’s debut weekend, the only animated film to top that was Toy Story 3 back in 2010 which opened up to nearly £12 million and that went on to smash the £70 million mark, if it stay’s on course then it should be the highest taking movie of the year ahead of Les Miserable and Iron Man 3.

New Releases – Only two new films will be trying to make a dent into Despicable Me 2 takings next week, we also have two smaller films which shouldn’t bother the chart that much but if they do make it into the top 10 then they will be happy.  Firstly the two smaller movies are surfing drama starring Gerrard Butler Chasing Mavericks and documentary about the band Pussy Riot.  The two biggest films of the week are comedy movie The Internship starring Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn and thriller about the world of illusion Now You See Me.
