After a trio of weeks at the top of the box office The Hobbits have made way for the Oscar tipped Stephen Hawking bio-pic The Theory Of Everything.

The film had previews in the last week which pushed it to the top of the tree, had it not had those previews it would have stalled at number 2 and not debuted at the top, instead it makes it way to number 1 with £3.7 million.

Falling just the one place this week is The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies which only narrowly missed out on a fourth week at the top with a £3.2 million start to the year.

Sitting comfortably at number 2 the third and final Hobbit movie has so far racked up £36.7 million in the UK, and looks likely to beat Smaugs UK total.

Also new this week are
The Woman In Black Angel of Death at 4
Birdman at 7

Also new this week is Tinker Bell and The Legend of The Neverbeast at 7.
