Bad Neighbours was released at the UK box office on 9th May this year, and after some controversy over box office taking for advance screenings took a very good £8.4 million on it's debut.

The controversy was down to 2 weeks of preview screening being added to the opening weekend take, so the film was actually released 2 weeks earlier and only took about £2 million on it;s debut weekend proper.

Despite this the film hung around the box office for 6 weeks and had a nice steady drop down the chart and took just why of £16 million during it's box office run, it is the 249th highest grossing film in the UK ever!

Falling into second place is The Amazing Spider-man 2 which topped the video chart last week.

It's stayed in the top position for 3 weeks before it fell quite hard out of the box office chart spending just 6 weeks at cinemas.

During it's 6 week run though it did gross a quite respectable £23.6 million making it the 119th top film in the UK, worldwide it grossed $706 million making it the 63rd top film evert.

I can't go a week without mentioning Disney's Frozen and this week it jumps up another place and goes back into the top 3.

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.

At UK cinemas this weekend it's mad scientists messing with the fabric of humanity verses women out for revenge.

Johnny Depp stars in Transcendence, a technology gone mad tale of a scientist trying to create a super human being and experimenting on himself. This will have a hard time against The Amazing Spider-Man 2 but it will chart in the top 5.

Cameron Diaz stars in The Other Woman, the three woman in a mans life, wife and 2 mistresses meet they plot to get their revenge on the man. The Love Punch charted low this week which demands a similar audience, but Diaz is a box office puller so this could go low top 5.

Come back next week to find out where they landed on the Uk box office chart.

This week there wasn't too much of a surprise to see The Amazing Spider-Man 2 enter the box office at the very top after a much hyped and anticipated release.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 enteres the box office with a weekend gross of £9 million, not quite enough to put it among the greats.
