Pitch Perfect 2 took a very reasonable £5 million over the weekend which is only a million shy of the entire box office run of the previous film.

Rolling in half a million behind is Mad Max Fury Road, the sequel/remake of the Mel Gibson films received excellent reviews from the critics and was expected to get to the top but the aca-girls were simply too much.

Falling into third this week after a trio of weeks at the top is Avengers Age of Ultron, the Avengers sequel has taken an incredible £43.2 million to date and is the top film of the year so far.

Bombay Velvet at number 14 is the only other new film on the top 15 this week.

Now in its third week Avengers Age of Ultron is totally dominent on the UK box office, this weekend taking another £3 million.

The total gross for the laters Marvel superhero film in the UK is £40 million which takes it above Fast and Furious 7 as the highest grossing film of the year, an accolade Furious 7 held for 1 week.

Age of Ultron is more or less running at a par with Avengers Assemble and should end up with a similar total UK gross, across the work Ultron has grossed just over $880 million.

Making its debut on the box office this week is British film [spooks] The Greater Good - based on the TV show Spooks.

Entering in the runner up spot the film takes just over a million pound.

Historical charts
A year ago
Bad Neighbours took over from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 at the top of the chart on it's debut week of release.

Five years ago
Iron Man 2 held on strong at the top of the box office which the highest new film of the week was Furry Vengeance which came in at 2.

Ten years ago
Kingdom of Heaven made it's debut at the top of the box office knocking The Hitchhikers Guide to The Galaxy down to the number 2 slot.

Fifteen years ago
Kevin and Perry Go Large was still riding high at the top of the UK box office while the highest new film was right down at 6 in the shape of Man On The Moon starring Jim Carrey.

Twenty years ago
Outbreak held onto the top of the box office and there were no new entries on the chart for this week.

At the UK box office over the weekend there was no doubt which film was going to be the biggest, and in the process a new franchise is born in the superhero stable.

The Marvel/Disney stable bring another franchise to the big screen in the shape of Guardians of the Galaxy, and unlike their Avengers counterparts these are a bunch of misfits.

Guardians took a very respectable £6.3 million to make number 1, comparing Guardians to Avenger (called Avengers Assemble in the UK) that film released in 2012 had a £15.7 million opening, nearly double that of Guardians.

Although Avengers was not a sequel as such it did have a number of high grossing companion films before it including Iron Man and Thor.

Last weeks top film, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, falls a single place to 2 this week after 3 weeks of release, its total gross is £23.4 million.

Also worth a mention this week; Secret Cinema are showing a months worth of Back to the Future screening in surroundings based on the films Hill Valley, this took the nearly 30 year old film back to number 7 this week.

Also new is
The Nut Job at 6

This time last year The Smurfs 2 hit the top of the box office on it's debut knocking The Wolverine to number 4.

Five years ago Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince was still at the top keeping the highest new entry at 2, G-Force.

Ten years ago King Arthur took the top spot on it's debut which left Spider-Man 2 to tumble to second place.

Fifteen years ago Mike Myers stared in Austin Powers The Spy Who Shagged Me which knocked Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace into second place.

Twenty years ago in the month of August Jim Carey was on a wave after Ace Ventura and The Mask was sitting as the top film of the month.

Twenty Five years ago Lethal Weapon 2 was the biggest film of August.

In the US this weekend there was only really one film in the shape of Marvel/Disney's latest franchise Guardians of the Galaxy.

From the same studio that has broken box office takings over the past years as Avengers Assemble, Iron Man and Captain America to name a few, Guardians of the Galaxy posts the highest August gross ever.

There was speculation over the new franchise and is there was room in an already crowded superhero market, but it looks like there is still room for good entertaining films, and the positive reviews wont have hurt at all.

Audience reaction was positive as well, and pitch at older teenagers during the holiday period this could have lasting appeal and another Billion dollar film from Marvel could be on the cards.

Also out his week, and making a solid debut at 3 is Get on Up, a biographic film of James Brown, the film debut's with a $14 million weekend.

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.

Frozen from Disney has scaled heights that the Mouse House could have in no way imagined on it's release at the back end of last year, and now it's the 3rd highest grossing film of all time.

All that stands in it's way is the two James Cameron Juggernaut's of Avatar and Titanic which with over $2 billion in world takings will be hard to shift.

Frozen has to date done $1.8 Billion of business across the globe and with Titanic on $2.2 Billion it'll find it hard to match that.

Still for an animated film it's just toppled Iron Man 3 from the number 3 spot with ease and Disney have their biggest film for a number of years on their hands, with merchandise takings as well this has been massive.

After a successful advanced showing last week which would have put the film at the top those figures go a long way to make sure that bad Neighbours knocked The Amazing Spider-Man 2 off it's perch this week.

Starring Seth Rogan and Zac Efron Bad Neighbours had no trouble de-throning the web slinger with an £8.5 million debut.

Spider-Man 2 falls into second place with £1.3 million bringing it's total gross to £22 million after 4 weeks.

Also new this week are:
Sabotage - Arnold Schwarzenegger's latest
La Cenerentola - the latest from the Met Opera
Frank
The Wind Rises
Before The Winter Chill

Last year saw the much anticipated Star Trek Into Darkness enter at the top knocking Iron Man 3 into second place.

Five years ago saw JJ Abrahams first Star Trek film enter the box office at the top knocking X-Men Origins: Wolverine into 3rd place with Coraline entering at 2.

Ten years ago had Van Helsing debuting at the top meaning Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind fell to number 2.

Fifteen years ago had I Still Know What You Did Last Summer go to the top on it's first week leaving The Waterboy to have a single week at the top.

No move at the top of the box office this week for a third consecutive week give The Amazing Spider-Man 2 the top film of the week. The summer season has started.

The follow up Spider-Man film added another £2 million over the weekend bringing it's total UK gross to just why of £ 20 million.

With The Other Woman staying put at 2 the highest new film was the Paul W.S. Anderson directed Pompeii which entered at 3. Based on the historical events surrounding the Italian village Pompeii took £1.2 million over the weekend.

Other new films this week are:
Tarzan (4)
Plastic (10)
Blue Ruin (15)

This time last year there was still no moving Iron Man 3 as he spent another week at the top with the highest new film 21 and Over entering at 2.

Five years ago X-Men Origins: Wolverine debuted on the chart at the top leaving Hannah Montana The Movie to land at 2. State of Play fell from the top to 3.

Ten years ago Kill Bill Volume 2 was still riding the top slot keeping Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind from debuting at number 1, it had to settle for 2.

Fifteen years ago The Waterboy starring Adam Sandler was the new film at the top of the box office, knocking 8MM down to second place.

Twenty years ago Four Wedding and a Funeral was the big film for May with The Naked Gun 33 1/3 The Final Insult and The Crow also doing well while twenty five years ago Warlock starring Julian Sands was the big film with Mississippi Burning and Beaches also doing well.

With no massive new releases on Friday The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was able to claim the top spot at the box office for a second consecutive week.

Adding a weekend gross of £3.4 million the Spider-Man follow-up has got a 10 day UK box office taking of £16.5 million. This is lower than it's predecessor which had taken £18.8 million during the same period, although that film had a July Opening.

Highest new film of the week is the Cameron Diaz starring The Other Woman. The rom com starring one of the biggest female leads at the moment grossed £2.7 million on it's debut landing at 2.

Other new film this week
Transcendence
Cosi Fan Tutte Met Opera 2014

This time last year the big Marvel tentpole Iron Man 3 hit UK cinemas at the top with an incredible £13.7 million gross, it knocked Olympus Has Fallen for 6 into second place.

Five years ago State of Play hit the top on it's debut weekend in the UK knocking Monsters Vs Aliens into second place.

Ten years ago Quentin Tarantino took his Kill Bill Volume 2 to the top of the box office on it;s debut which knocked 50 First Dates into second place.

Fifteen years ago Nicholas Cage hit number one with 8mm on it's opening weekend and knocked The Faculty down to 2.

Despicable Me 2 tops the UK box office on it's opening weekend and has the best weekend of the year so far, and grossing more than the rest of the top 10 combined.

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.

25thframe have seen Iron Man 3, checkout the review to see what we thought of the Robert Downy Jr and Gwyneth Paltrow film.
The top 5 on the UK box office this week was almost static with The Wolf Pack leading the way in their 3rd Hangover outing.

The Hangover Part III stayed at the top for a second weekend in a row this week with no competition from any new releases meaning the only movement in the top 5 was Star Trek into Darkness climbing 1 place and The Great Gatsby dropping a place.

Longest stay in the chart this week is The Croods which is now on an 11 week run and the highest grossing film is Iron Man 3 which has to date grossed £ 36,358,709 A year ago Ridley Scott brought his new Alien film to cinemas in the shape of Prometheus which debut at the top and was hence the highest new film knocking Men in Black 3 from the top.

Five years ago the first Sex and the City movie made it's debut at the top of the UK box office knocking the fourth instalment of the Indiana Jones franchise, The Kingdom of the Chrystal Skull from the top.

Ten years ago The Matrix Reloaded was still riding the wave of expectation at the top keeping Steve Martin at bay in the runner up spot in Bringing Down the House which debuted at 2.

Fifteen year ago meteor disaster movies were all the rage and Deep Impact was still at the top while horror film Wishmaster was the highest new film at 3.

Twenty years ago Indecent Proposal was proving to be the top grossing film of May.

Check out this weeks UK box office.

I just checked out the new Iron Man 2 trailer, and for a film that I thought was going to be another Iron Man, this is actually looking good.

The first film although fun was basically just another super hero movie that ticked all the right boxes. The inevitable sequel was to follow after the amount of money it made and as always with sequels the ante had to be upped.

Bring in Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow for a bit of glamour and Mickey Rourke as the bad guy and suddenly things are starting to look a whole lot better.

The second trailer for the film shows a lot of promise, Mickey Rourke's Whiplash is quite wonderfully shown off in the trailer and there is just enough of Scarlett Johansson to seriously whet the appetite.

And this is ignoring the fact that there is also glimpses of Samuel L. Jackson which is always enough to make a trailer worth watching.
