Sorry about the late report this week, Easter holidays has delayed things.

This week Captain America: The Winter Soldier returns to the top of the UK box office, surprisingly knocking Rio 2 down to third, surprisingly because it's the Uk Easter holidays and the one big kids film seems to have died at the box office, although Captain America does have teenage appeal.

Highest new film this week is a return from Hammer Horror. The film The Quiet Ones is Hammers first film since the Daniel Radcliffe hit The Woman in Black, and although being no where near as big a hot as that film still does well landing at 6 with £681,305.

Other new films on this weeks chart are:
Calvary
The Raid 2: Berabdal
Khumba a Zebras Tale
The Lunchbox

One year ago Oblivion starring Tom Cruise entered the chart at the top knocking The Croods down to second place.

Five years ago Fast and Furious hit the top spot on it's debut knocking Monsters Vs. Aliens into the runner up spot.

Ten years ago Scooby Doo 2 Monsters Unleashed held the top spot keeping 50 First Dates from debuting at 2

Fifteen years ago The Rugrats Movie spent it's 3rd week at the top while The Faculty debuted at 2.

This week in the UK Rio 2 makes the big step and flies to the top of the box office chart on it's debut weekend.

It was actually quite quiet this week and Rio 2 takes the crown with a relatively small £2.9 million. The sequel to 2011's Rio, the film enters the top just as the Easter holidays start so expect it to stay for a couple of week.

Last weeks top film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier falls down to 2 this week with £2.8 million taking it's 10 day total to £10.9 million.

Other new films this week are
Noah
Divergent
La Boheme Met Opera 2014
The Double
Main Tera Hero

This time last year The Croods was still at the top with the highest new film, Dark Skies, entering at 3.

Five years ago Monsters Vs Aliens entered the box office at the top with The Boat that Rocks not far behind at 2, the previous weeks number 1, Knowing, fell to 3.

This week Disney had a double dip on the UK box office with Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Muppets Most Wanted hitting at one and two.

Captain America, the latest from the Marvel Avengers (Avengers Assemble as it's called in the UK) universe of films, was by far and away the better grossing film taking £6 million. The film is a sequel to 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger which took £3 million on it's July debut.

Muppets Most Wanted is the follow up to 2012 The Muppets. That film took £2.6 million on it's debut, this one took a very similar £2.2 million.

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.

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.
