With no new releases making much of an impact at the box office this week there is a climber to the top, Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel which was at 2 last week.

It's third week of general release, and a window with few new films results in a £1.2 million weekend taking Budapest Hotel to the top, and its the only film this week to gross over a million pound.

Last weeks top film, Need for Speed, falls to two in it's second week of release.

Highest new film of the week is at 6, Starred Up directed by David Mackenzie which grosses nearly £500,000 over the weekend.

This weeks new films: Starred Up
A Long Way Down
Labor Day
About Last Night
Yves Saint Laurent

The sequel to 2007's 300 takes £2.7 million during it's debut weekend of release, taking over from The Lego movie which sinks just one place to number 2 this week.

Also worth a mention is The Grand Budapest Hotel which debut's at 3 this week.

After a couple of weeks at the top of the UK box office for Oz we now have a full change with The Croods leading the way.

Dreamworks animated comedy The Croody debuted at the top this week with £5.4 million. Last weeks top film, Oz the Great and Powerful fell to number 3, as Jack the Giant Slayer debuted in the runner up spot.

A year ago The Hunger Games made it's chart debut with a lot of hype and £4.9 million is takings. It knocked 21 Jump Street to number 2.

Fifteen years ago it was still Titanic, by which point it has by far become the biggest film in the UK ever and it's total was running at £51 million. In this week Leonardo DiCaprio hit a double whammy at the top as he was also the star of the highest new film, at 2, The Man in the Iron Mask.

Sam Raimi's Oz prequel is still at the top of the UK box office with Steven Soderbergh's Side Effects holding firm in the runner up spot.

Oz The Great and Powerful is proving to be a huge hit for Disney at it hold the UK box office top spot for a second weekend on the trot. A weekend gross of £2.6 million has meant that after 10 days the film has taken £7.6 million in total.

Side Effects holds it's own at 2 leaving the highest new film, Welcome to the Punch, to land at 3. With only £460,250 for the weekend it's a weak opening for the highest new film. Doing even worse is the new Jim Carey film The Incredible Burt Wonderstone which land at with only just over £300,000.

At the UK box office this week Sam Raimi has his latest film turn into a blockbuster for Disney with Oz The Great and Powerful debuting at number 1.

A weekend gross of £3.7 million is enough for Oz to knock last weeks top film, Hansel and Gretel right down to the 6th place, the Witch Hunter film suffering a massive drop in it's second weekend of release.

Oz, a prequel to the classic The Wizard of Oz, had a strong opening but did not manage one of the top opening of all time.

Last year Disney was celebrating with a top spot debut for John Carter, it was no where near as strong as Oz, and terrible reviews killed it quickly, but the opening weekend was just why of £2 million.

Five years ago the Dennis Quaid vehicle Vantage point was the top film, making it's debut there with £1.4 million.

Ten years ago Jennifer Lopez and Ralph Fiennes were doing the romantic thing at the top with Maid In Manhattan which took £2.5 million on it's debut.

Twenty years ago Dracula was still the top film while Steven Segal was fighting terrorists on a boat in Under Siege.

Sam Raimi gives us a prequel to The Wizard of Oz, Jason Statham is in full action form again and Barbara Streisand mothers Seth Rogan at the box office this weekend.
