Woody Allen's Irrational Man also enters the chart this week at number 9, low for a new Woody Allen film.

Following the path laid down by its US box office release, Straight Outta Compton this week climbs to the top of the UK box office on its debut.

A low week overall for the box office grosses and Compton's weekend take is £2.4 million, it is higher than last weeks top film.

A £452,953 second weekend gross brings the film to £3.4 in total with the prospect of a very short 3 week run.

All change at the top of the UK box office this week with drama Paper Towns taking over at the top leaving last weeks top film to take a huge tumble.

Paper Town is from the same author as last years hit The Fault in Our Stars which topped the UK box office in June of 2014.

Paper Town hasn't debuted as impressively as the £3 million plus of The Fault in Our Stars with a £2 million debut weekend.

Last weeks top film takes a huge tumble down to 6 this week with an £800,000 second weekend which brings it's total to £4.7 million.

Although Paper Towns is the top film of the weekend once again Inside Out, at number 2, is the top film of the week with a Monday - Sunday total or £3.2 million.

Top grossing film on the box office this week is Minions with a total gross of £44 million over 9 weeks of release.

26th January 2015

Like there is no stopping the man Liam Neeson, not only is he top of the box office chart with Taken 3 but he is also top of the video charts with A Walk Among The Tombstones.

The film was released into UK cinemas on 19th September 2014 and was a small hit, it managed to debut at number 2 on the box office with £1.3 million but fell sharply only managing 3 weeks.

It spent another 3 weeks outside the box office top 15 ending up with a £3.7 million total gross.

Falling from the top this week, Lucy manages to still sell strongly and is at number 2 this week.

Also new this week is: Big Oscar film Boyhood at number 3, A Most Wanted Man at number 4 and The Riot Club at number 13.

17th September 2014

The Boxtrolls hit the number 1 spot at the UK box office this week, but it had a little help from previews screenings the previous 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.

10th September 2014

After 2 weeks at the top Lucy gets knocked down the chart by Sex Tape which makes it's debut in the Uk at number 1.

Starring Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel this Jake Kasdan directed comedy about a couple trying to spice up their sex life by making a movie, which then gets shared to everyone debuts with £1.4 million.

Not a great opening gross especially for the 2 leads, Diaz has enjoyed great success with the Shrek franchise while Segel has seen big grosses with the likes of The Muppets, Gullivers Travels and Knocked Up.

Lucy has been having a great cinema run and after 3 weeks of release has taken a very respectable £10.46 million.

Also new this week is

Before I go to Sleep at 3
The Hundred Foot Journey at 4
The Guest at 8

Chart History
One year ago this week Richard Curtis's About Time made it's debut at the top of the box office knocking the One Direction boys to 3rd.

Five years ago District 9 was the debut film for Neill Blomkamp and it debuted at the top knocking The Final Destination into second.

Ten years ago Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks team up agin to debut the Terminal at the top knocking Dodgeball to second place.

Fifteen years ago so a very static box office with South Park Bigger Louder and Uncut staying at the top while the top new film was Go right down at six.

Finally twenty years ago this month Speed and Forest Gump where the big film at the box office while twenty five years ago Dead Poets Society and Young Einstein were the big grossing films of September.

3rd September 2014

The UK movie goer this week kept Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson in the top position with a number of weaker new releases in the market.

The Luc Besson directed film took just under £2 million during it's second weekend of release and now sits with a total gross of £8 million.

Highest new entry of the week is the buddy cop comedy Lets Be Cops starring Damon Wayans Jr., as you'd expect from a film of this kind it's a slap stick comedy.

Lets Be Cops takes £1.6 million for the weekend, but I suspect it may sink and disappear from the box office quickly.

Other new films to hit the box office this week are
Sin City A Dame To Kill For at 4 (with previews grosses)
If I Stay at 6 - the new Daniel Radcliffe so maybe a little disappointing
As Above so Below at 8
Million Dollar Arm at 15

A year ago this week One Direction This is Us took the top slot on it's debut weekend of release pushing Elysium to 2.

Five years ago The Final Destination took the top of the box office on it's first weekend taking over from Inglourious Basterds.

Ten years ago Dodgeball entered the chart at the top and knocked The Village down to 2 after it's single week at the top.

Fifteen years ago Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace was toppled from the top of the box office by South Park: Bigger Longer and Uncut on it's debut.

27th August 2014

At the UK box office this week Luc Besson's directed Lucy about a woman using 100% of her brain takes over at the top.

Starring Scarlett Johansson Lucy tops the box office on it's debut week of release with a weekend gross of £3.07 million.

Compared to Luc Bessons previous films this is by far the best opening he has had, Arthur and the Invisibles is his highest grossing British release which took just over a million on it's release in 2007.

Scarlett Johansson is part of the Marvel Avengers universe so has seen some astronomical releases over the past few years and so it's a little unfair to compare!

Falling into second place is last weeks top film The Inbetweeners 2 which has now grossed £27.6 million after 3 weeks of release.

There is a few other new entries this week which are
Into the Storm at 4 Deliver Us From Evil at 5
What if at 6

Doctor Who: Deep Breath at 8, from a single day special showing on Saturday
Two Days, One Night at 14

Last year Matt Damon was starring in Elysium which entered at the top of the box office knocking Kick-Ass 2 right down to 7.

Five years ago Inglourious Basterds was the new top film in the UK knocking The Time Travers Wife down to the runner up spot.

Ten years ago M. Night Shyamalan released The Village which hit the top spot on it's debut with The Bourne Supremacy falling a single place to number 2.

Fifteen years ago Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace reclaimed the top spot knocking Austin Powers The Spy Who Shagged me to number 2, highest new film was Micky Blue Eys at 3.

22nd August 2014

With very little in the way of new films this weekend the Daniel Radcliffe starring What If seems to have the biggest potential with Lucy and Into The Storm also on release. The former Harry Potter star has really built up a following since his days as the boy wizard and he has had big success outside the series with The Woman in Black.

A fairly simple love story What If should see a top 5 entry, especially for the Potter fans wanting to see how Radcliffe does as a romantic lead.

Possibly out to spoil What If's party is Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson and directed by Luc Besson, the French director who brought us Le Femme Nikita and Leon.

With a top hollywood star, Morgan Freeman in for good measure and good pre-word this could easily out perform What If this weekend.

Into The Storm is also out, but no star appeal and a tried and tested them of weather elements gone wrong this should limp into the top 10.

Also worth a mention is Doctor Who, a special event screening of the first episode of the new series is happening on Saturday night, the previous Doctor Who event screen took Day of the Doctor to number 3 with £1.8 million.

The top 2 films of The Inbetweeners 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy should stay in place but maybe there will be a swap around with Guardians going back to the top?

Come back next week to find out the final weekend results.

28th July 2014

In America this week Scarlett Johansson stars in the Luc Besson directed Lucy which takes over at the top without too much competition.

Having been a very prolific director in the late 90's Luc Besson returns to the adult action arena and hits the top with Lucy, helped in no small way by the ever popular star Scarlett Johansson.

Lucy hits the top spot with a $44 million opening weekend.

Falling into second place after a couple of weeks at the top is Dawn of the planet of the apes, a $16 million weekend takes its total gross after 3 weeks to $172 million.

Highest grossing film on the American box office this week is Transformers Age of Extinction which has grossed $236 million so far.

Also new on the US box office this week is
Hercules at 2
And So It Goes at 8 A Most Wanted Man at 10
