With no big new releases this week the video chart is left to the mercy of the ver present Frozen which duly goes back to the top of the video chart, in it's 36th week.

Last week top film, The Inbetweeners 2, falls just a single place to 2 this week after just 1 week at the top.

Highest new film of the week as it 3, The Expendables 3, starring a whole host of movie tough guys including Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The Expendables 3 was release in UK cinemas on 15th August where it debuted at number 3. It had a short UK box office run of just 3 weeks.

During that time it grossed £3.7 million never climbing highest than 3. It is by far the lowest grossing of the franchise to date.

Other new film this week are: One Direction Where We Are at 15 and The Nut Job at 17

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.

With one massive new release this week there is little else to talk about but the kids during their catered for as well.

Guardians of the Galaxy, the long awaited sci-fi adventure from the Marvel/Disney stable, opens with much hype and expectation. This will attract the fans from the Avengers universe and should get a bit opening weekend.

Reviews for the film has been very good with most critics enjoying the misfits in space story and this could get one of the biggest opening of the year, the top spot is almost guaranteed.

The Nut Job makes it's UK debut this weekend, with the school holidays in full swing this will give the film a better opening then at other times of the year.

A tale of squeals with voices by Will Arnett and Brendan Fraser this will be a big hit this weekend, top 5 definitely and could be a slow burner over the rest of the summer holiday period.

Come back on Tuesday to find out how these and other films perfumed at the box office.
