The highest of the new film is Maze Runner The Scorch Trials, the sequel to the 2014 film The Maze Runner.
The Scorch Trials was released in UK cinemas on 11 September 2015 and it entered the chart at number 2, behind Legend! A 6 week cinema run saw the film take a UK gross of £8.6 million in the UK, worldwide the film managed $312.3 million making it the 331st highest grossing world wide move, in the US it took $81 million.
Also new this week is: Sicario at number 3, Macbeth at number 4, Miss You Already at number 7 and The Walk at number 8.
Event cinema has become bigger and bigger in the UK over the last couple of years, Back to the Future this August was massive and Doctor Who has had a couple, none so far have come close to Billy Elliot's £1.9 million gross.
Surprisingly it beats into second place the much anticipated The Equalizer starring Denzel Washington, it was a close race but the 80's TV show remake's gross of £1.89 million was just shy of the number 1 film.
Two other film entered the box office this week inside the top 15
What We Did On Our Holiday at 4
Maps to the Stars at number 15
This time last year Prisoners took over at the top from Ron Howard's Rush which went back to number 2 after a single week at the top.
Five years ago the remake of 70's classic Fame hit the box office summit on it's debut week knocking Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs after a week at the top.
Ten years ago it was all change at the top end of the box office with Wimbledon taking the number 1 spot knocking Collateral down to 3.
Fifteen years ago The Haunting made it's debut at the top while Eyes Wide Shut fell to the 3rd positon after a couple of weeks at the top.
The Boxtrolls makes it 2 weeks at the top, this week with no advanced screenings, but it still manages to retain a £1.33 million weekend and £3.6 million from 10 days of release.
Highest new entry for the week is A Walk Among the Tombstones starring Liam Neeson reprising a role for which he seems to have found a nice since his starring in Taken.
Tombstones narrowly missed out the the top spot by about £15 million, taking £1.31 for the weekend, with The Equaliser being released on Friday it will likely not get it's day at the top.
Also new this week are
Historical box office
This time last year Ron Howard's Rush was still topping the box office with the highest new film right down at 5 in the shape of Diana.
Five years ago Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs was the new film at the top knocking District 9 down to second place.
Ten years ago Tom Cruise went serious in Collateral knocking Open Water down to second after a single week on top.
Fifteen years ago The Generals Daughter entered in second place while Eyes Wide Shut stayed at the top for a second week.
In a similar vein to Bad Neighbours from earlier in the year, The Boxtrolls' official gross for the weekend is £2 million, but £600,000 was achieved with the previous weeks previews.
A £1.6 million weekend would have still seen it at the top but with a much reduced opening, last weeks top film, Lucy falls to second place £811,936, still £800,000 behind.
Regardless of how figures are worked out it was still a very quiet weekend at UK cinemas, only one film over a million and film number 15 under £100,000.
With no major blockbuster out this week either, we might see a similar picture this time next week.
Historical box office.
This time last year things looked far better at the box office, Insidious Chapter 2 topped the box office knocking About Time down to 4th, Rush and White House Down also debuting at 2 and 3.
Five years ago District 13 was still at the top while the highest new film was Dorian Gray which entered at 3.
Ten years ago low budget factual drama Open Water took over at the top of the chart, The Terminal few from 1 to 2 on it;s second week of release.
Fifteen years ago Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman starred in Stanley Kubrick final film before his death which entered at the top knocking South Park Bigger Longer and Uncut from the top.
Now in it's second weekend of release Dawn of the Apes easily hangs on to the top spot with a weekend take of £3.7 million, this brings it's total gross to £17 million after 10 days of release.
Highest new film of the week is Dwayne Johnson in a retelling of Hercules, an all out action film rather than historical retelling of the Greek myth it's directed by Brett Ratner.
Hercules took a gross of £1.5 million on it's opening weekend, it has a long was to go to even be one of Johnson's best films as he's been part of the Fast and Furious series and The Mummy series.
Likewise Brett Ratner has been part of the X-Men series and directed the 2 Rush Hour movies, and also directed a Hannibal Lector film, all high grossing franchises.
Hercules could sink quite fast especially with some of the new releases coming in the next few weeks which will be ultimately bigger box office hits.
There are plenty of other new releases this week in the form of
The Purge Anarchy at 3
Earth to Echo at 6
The House of Magic at 10
This time last year new at the top was The Wolverine based on the X-Men universe which topped on it's debut knocking Monsters University into 2nd.

Ten years ago Spider-Man 2 held onto the top spot for a second week with the highest new film being Thunderbirds at 3.
Fifteen years ago it was Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace holding onto the top spot for a second week, and with nothing daring to open up in the wake of such a big film the highest new film was Hindustan Ki Kasam at 10.
The film was released at the UK box office mid September 2013 and entered at number 2, although is was the top film the following week.
Rush spent 7 weeks at UK cinemas taking £10 million.
Last weeks top film White House Down falls to number four.
Taking £1.3 million from the weekend Rush takes over at the top, simply swapping places with last weeks top film Insidious Chapter 2.
There was little in the way of new films, the biggest of which is the critically panned film Diana, about the life of the late Princess which landed at 5 with a small take of $pound;600,000.
A small side note, the latest Grand Theft Auto Game was released last Monday which may have kept the young and middle aged men from cinemas, as reflected in the new releases.
One year ago ParaNorman was still at the top with Killing them softly a way behind at 2 being the highest new film.
Five years ago Tropic Thunder was the top film new film of the week smashing the previous weeks number 1, Pinapple Express, down to 4.
Ten years ago the remake of The Italian Job was at the highest new film of the week entering at the top and knocking Calendar Girls down to 2.
And fifteen years ago there was no shifting Saving Private Ryan from the top although highest new film of the week Lethal Weapon 4 had a good go and came within a whisker, it landed at 2.
Front and foremost is Martin Freeman who is set to play the lead role of Bilbo Baggins. Also flying the British flas was James Nesbit who will play Bofur.
Peter Jackson was missing from the Press Conference as he's recovering from a recent operation, also the reason why filming has been delayed. Also not in the shot is Ian McKellen, Andy Serkis and Elijah Wood who all reprise roles from the Lord of the Rings movies.

This is the start of the gold rush for pics, stay tuned to the hype mill as I suspect there will be a lot more to come.
