Another change on the UK video chart this week with tearjerking drama The Fault in Our Stars taking over at the top of the chart on it's first week of release.

The Fault in Our Stars was released at UK cinemas on 20th June this year taking £3.4 million on it's opening weekend where it entered at the top of the box office.

A six week stay on the box office saw it take a total gross of £11 million most of which happened in the first 3 weeks of release.

Falling from the top position to the runner up on it's second week of release is Mrs. Brown's Boys D'Movie.

The HobbitL The Desolation of Smaug was released in special extended edition last week and in turn re-enters the video chart at three.

Other new film of the video chart this week are: The Snow Queen at seven, Chef at thirteen and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire re-enters at fourteen.

As expected the movie version of Mrs. Browns Boys took the top spot at the UK box office, and with quite a strong margin over the rest.

On it's debut weekend Mrs. Brown's Boys D'Movie took an incredible £4.3 million, far higher than expected and proving that the Irish sit-com has quite a following.

I suspect that this is a fairly front loaded event and we could see it fall quite sharply, I dont think it has the lasting appeal of movie like The Inbetweeners Movie.

Falling to the runner up spot this week is The Fault in our stars which made £1.7 million from the weekend bringing it's 10 day gross to £6.7 million.

Other new film to chart this week are:
Chef at 5
How to Train Your Drans 2 (still only on previews) at 6
Walking on Sunshine at 7
Cold in July at 11
Ek Villain at 12
Punjab 1984 at 13

This time last year Despicable Me 2 hit the top of the box office on it's debut week of release, it would go on to be the top film in the UK of 2013, it knocked Man of Steel into 2nd place.

Five years ago Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was still the top film in the UK and Year One with Jack Black was the highest new film at 3.

Ten years ago it was still Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban at the top while the top new film of the week was Tom Hanks on Lady Killers at 4.

Fifteen years ago Brendan Fraser made a big screen comeback in The Mummy which debuted at the top of the box office knocking The Matrix into the runner up spot after only a week.

This week there is a trio of new releases which will battle it out for box office supremacy but they may have a battle on their hands with this weeks top film The Fault in Our Stars.

Biggest film of the week is Mrs Browns Boys D'Movie. The big screen debut of the BBC smash hit comedy series sees Agnes Brown and her family doing things on a bigger scale. A cult in Great Britain this could do big business and hit the top spot for a single week.

Chef is from director Jon Favreau and unlike his previous films Iron Man and Cowboys and Aliens this is a low budget low scale movie about life in a foot truck. This should see a top 5 entry on the box office.

Following on from the success of Mama Mia! and Sunshine on Leith, Walking on Sunshine is a feel good movie with lots of song performances throughout, directed by Max Giwa and Dania Pasquini this could see a top 5 entry.
