Monsters University falls from the top this week after 3 weeks to number 2.
This time last year The Dark Knight Rises was still the top film with another fantastic week at the UK taking £7.2 million. The Lorax was the top new film, at 2 with £1.8 million.
Five years ago The Dark Knight burst into the top of the chart with £11.2 million knocking Mamma Mia from the top while coming of age teen drama Angus Thongs and Perfect Snogging was the new at 4.
Ten years ago The Hulk was still the top film with £1.3 million and animated tale Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas was the top new film with £800,000.
Fifteen years ago Godzilla was still the top film with £2.1 million and with a fairly static top 5 the highest new entry of the week was The Gingerbread Man at 7 with £171,120.
10 days on release and a second weekend as the number one film in Great Britain Monsters University takes £2.7 million pushing it's total UK gross to £8.6 million.
Highest new film of the weekend is The Worlds End, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost on a bender that sees the world end, directed by long time collaborator Edgar Wright.
The Worlds end took £2.1 million at the box office, much lower that I would have expected for an anticipated film, but like last weekend the weather has clearly kept people outside.
In accordance with my expectations The Worlds End didn't take the top spot from Monsters University, it was way off by nearly £700,000 and also the box office taking stayed quite stagnant, although with the summer holidays now upon us next week could be different.
Last year at this time The Dark Knight Rises took the box office by storm taking £14.3 million on it's opening weekend, knocking Ice Age Continental Drift from the top and also becoming the highest new film of the week.
Five years ago Mamma Mia was still at the top slowly raking in the money, and also keeping Wall-E from debuting at the top, the Pixar film has to settle for number 2.
Ten years ago The Hulk starring Eric Bana and directed by Ang Lee debuted at the top knocking Charlie's Angels Full Throttle down to number 3.
Fifteen years ago Godzilla took the top spot on it's debut weekend from Six Days Seven Knights.
Displacing Man of Steel from the top after 2 weeks, Despicable Me 2 came close to grossing £15 million on it's opening weekend beating the year best of Iron Man 3 by more than a million pound.
Also new this week in the top 10 are This is the End at 4 and Hummingbird at 5.
Inline with my predictions for the weekend Despicable Me 2 did indeed top the charts and This is the End had a top 5 entry. Hummingbird entered in the top 5 and although I predicted that I thought a top 10 was more likely.
Last year new at the top of the box office, and knocking Prometheus from the top was Ice Age 2, on limited release it still managed to top the chart with £800,000.
Five years ago it was all change, The Hulk sunk to third place as The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian topped the chart and Wanted landed at two.
Ten years ago there was also a change as Jim Carey starred in Bruce Almighty knocking 2 Fast 2 Furious into the runner up spot.
Fifteen years ago there was no change at the top as City of Angels hung on, the highest new film at 3 was Mimic.
We all saw it coming, like a speeding bullet perhaps, the re-imagined Superman franchise achieved big numbers last weekend. During it's opening weekend it took £11.2 million in Britain making it the 36 best opening weekend ever in the UK. After Earth falls into second place, not bad considering the bad reviews it's had.
Last year Prometheus was still at the top of the UK box office and during a quiet week for new releases Rocks of Ages was the highest new film at 4.
Five years go Sex and the City got knocked from the top spot into 2nd as The Incredible Hulk took over during it's opening weekend.
Ten years ago it was still all about The Matrix Reloaded riding the top spot while the highest new film was Identity at 3.
Fifteen years ago it was still The Wedding Singer at the top, and with almost no new films out that week the highest new film was Stiff Upper Lips right down at 10.
