ROBIN HOOD (12A) moderate violence, threat https://t.co/odwfdmd3v4— BBFC (@BBFC) September 24, 2018
Highly anticipated sequel Pitch Perfect 2 makes it's debut at the top of the box office chart this week despite some strong competition from the Mad Max remake.
Pitch Perfect 2 took a very reasonable £5 million over the weekend which is only a million shy of the entire box office run of the previous film.
Rolling in half a million behind is Mad Max Fury Road, the sequel/remake of the Mel Gibson films received excellent reviews from the critics and was expected to get to the top but the aca-girls were simply too much.
Falling into third this week after a trio of weeks at the top is Avengers Age of Ultron, the Avengers sequel has taken an incredible £43.2 million to date and is the top film of the year so far.
Bombay Velvet at number 14 is the only other new film on the top 15 this week.

It's like it was 1991 again and there is a new Robin Hood film in production, this time it wont star an American with a fake British accent, it'll star an Australian with a fake British accent.
That Aussie will be Russell Crowe, and today USA Today has the first image of the man in his "Hood" gear, check out the image below.
The BBC currently has a TV series of Robin Hood running on Saturday night, it's now in it's 3rd series, I;m not a fan of the show but this could be what has ignited the reason for this film. Now don't get me wrong the film is being directed by Ridley Scott who is one of the best British directors alive and I usually love his movies, but the image of Robin Hood in the BBC promos is how I imagine Robin Hood to be.
The publicity still of Robin Hood looks more like someone caught Russell Crowe out on a Sunday afternoon taking the dog for a walk and he thought he would take a bow and arrow in case he saw some deer to shoot.
I'm not quite sure what different angle this film can have on the legend but I can tell you that I was more excited about Kevin Costner's Prince of Thieves back in 1991 than I am this.
