A Bugs Life A U film should be suitable for audiences aged four years and over, although it is impossible to predict what might upset any particular child.

U films should be set within a positive framework and should offer reassuring counterbalances to any violence, threat or horror. If a work is particularly suitable for pre-school children, this will be indicated in the ratings info.

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

This time last year animated tale The Croods took the number one spot on it's debut weekend knocking Oz The Great and Powerful to 3.

Five years ago Marley and Me was still riding the top spot while Paul Blart Mall Cop came in at the runner up spot.

Ten years ago it was still Starsky and Hutch at number 1, a strong hold with the whole top 4 meant the highest new film was at 4, Open Range.

Fifteen years ago Waking Ned Devine was the top new film entering the box office, knocking A Bugs Life into second place.

All change again this week as the Aaron Paul racing film Need for Speed takes over at the top of the UK box office.

Ten years ago Julia Roberts starred in Mona Lisa Smile entering the box office at the top knocking Along Came Polly right down to third place.

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.

This time last year Oz The Great and Powerful was the highest new film which debuted at the top knocking Wreck-It Ralph down to 3.

No move at the top of the box office chart this week for The Lego Movie which makes it 3 in a row now for the little plastic bricks.

Keeping a still solid weekend gross of £3.2 million The Lego Movie was able to keep all pretenders to the throne at bay. the total now for Lego is £26.7 million.

Highest new film of the week is the Liam Neeson action film Non-Stop which debuts at 2 with £2.6 million.

A year ago Hansel and Gretel was the highest new film of the week debuting at the top of the chart, knocking Wreck-It Ralph down to the runner up spot.

Five years ago Slumdog Millionaire was still at the top off the back of big Oscar success while highest new film was Unborn at number 3.

Ten years ago Along Came Poly entered the chart at number one moving School of Rock down to number three.

Fifteen years ago A Bugs Life held firm at the top leaving highest new film You've Got Mail to enter at two.

Twenty years ago Schindler's List stayed at the top on the back of it's Oscar glory while Beethoven's 2nd was the highest new film at four.

Finally Twenty-Five years ago Rain Man was doing big business as the top film for March.

With the school half term being a wet and miserable time in most parts of the UK the cinema was clearly a good option for parents as 3 animated features dominate the charts.

At the top there is no change as The Lego Movie stays for a second week taking £6 million, climbing back up a place is Mr Peabody and Sherman, while climbing to third is Disney's Tinkerbelle and the Pirate Fairy.

You have to look outside the top ten to find the highest new film, Winter's Tale enters at thirteen this week, taking £258 thousand for the weekend.

A year ago Disney was at the top with Wreck-It Ralph was still at the top of the box office while horror film Mama took the highest new position at three.

Five years ago Disney was at the top with Bolt retaining the position while new film Shopaholic entered at two. Ten years ago The Haunted Mansion stayed at the top, from, you guessed it, Disney. Entering the highest right down at nine was Sex Lives of the Potato Man.

Fifteen years ago Disney were at the top (again) this time with the help of Pixar with A Bugs Life, while highest new film was at three, This Years Love.

In conclusion, Disney does well this time of year!
