SHAUN THE SHEEP 2 (U) very mild threat, language, rude humour https://t.co/HzMiTv1m22— BBFC (@BBFC) July 17, 2019
New at the top of the UK video chart this week is the Clint Eastwood directed American Sniper starring Bradley Cooper.
The film was release on 16th January 2015 at Uk cinemas in a flurry of Oscar hype at number 2 to the tune of £2.5 million, but as the hype got greater the film hit the top spot the following week.
In a run lasting 7 weeks the film grossed a very reasonable £13.4 million at the UK box office, in America it took and incredible $350 million making it one of Eastwoods biggest films.
In the UK the film is the 329th highest grossing of all time and worldwide with a gross of $539 million it's the 121st highest grossing.
There was a whole flurry of new releases this week, with almost the whole top 5 changing, last weeks top film, Big Hero 6, fell to number 3 this week.
Other new film then are: Shaun The Sheep Movie at number 2, Ex Machina at number 4, Whiplash at number 5, Forbidden Kingdom at number 14 and The Gambler down at number 18.
After such a strong debut from Fifty Shades of Grey last weekend the film was almost certain to retain it's lead at the top for a second weekend, which it does.
A weekend take of £4.6 million now brings the total gross of the film to £25.2 million, meaning it takes over from The Theory of Everything as the top film of 2015 so far.
It is also not the highest grossing 18 rated film in the UK, and the highest grossing R rated movie in America.
Half term week meant that the family and children's films on the chart had strong weeks, Big hero 6 and Shaun the Sheep Movie both had increases in takings from the previous weekend and hold the number 2 and 3 positions.
Highest new film of the week is The Wedding Ringer starring Kevin Hart and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, it enters at 4 with a debut gross of £990,000.
One other new film on the top 10 this week in the shape of time travel film Project Almanac.

Another £2.5 million over the weekend sees the Hero 6's UK gross rise to £7.5 million from it's 11 days of release, including preview screenings.
Interestingly it was the weekend which gave Hero 6 the top spot, looking at the chart for the full week, Kingsman takes the top spot by nearly a million pound.
Highest new film of the week is from the Aardman animated studio, Shaun The Sheep Movie enters at number 4.
Shaun takes ££2 million for the weekend, not the numbers that Wallace and Gromit are used to but it's up there with other Aardman films.
