2nd July 2014

As expected the movie version of Mrs. Browns Boys took the top spot at the UK box office, and with quite a strong margin over the rest.

On it's debut weekend Mrs. Brown's Boys D'Movie took an incredible £4.3 million, far higher than expected and proving that the Irish sit-com has quite a following.

I suspect that this is a fairly front loaded event and we could see it fall quite sharply, I dont think it has the lasting appeal of movie like The Inbetweeners Movie.

Falling to the runner up spot this week is The Fault in our stars which made £1.7 million from the weekend bringing it's 10 day gross to £6.7 million.

Other new film to chart this week are:
Chef at 5
How to Train Your Drans 2 (still only on previews) at 6
Walking on Sunshine at 7
Cold in July at 11
Ek Villain at 12
Punjab 1984 at 13

This time last year Despicable Me 2 hit the top of the box office on it's debut week of release, it would go on to be the top film in the UK of 2013, it knocked Man of Steel into 2nd place.

Five years ago Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was still the top film in the UK and Year One with Jack Black was the highest new film at 3.

Ten years ago it was still Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban at the top while the top new film of the week was Tom Hanks on Lady Killers at 4.

Fifteen years ago Brendan Fraser made a big screen comeback in The Mummy which debuted at the top of the box office knocking The Matrix into the runner up spot after only a week.

24th June 2014

There were a trio of big new releases this week and as expected The Fault in Our stars hit the top, the other two didn't perform any where near expectations.

Based on the novel of the same name The Fault in Our Stars is a teenage love story and a tragedy. Directed by Josh Boone who previously directed Stuck in Love from 2003 and starring Shailene Woodley.

Taking £3.4 million from the weekend it knocks 22 Jump Street into the number 2 spot after 2 weeks at the top, Jump Street has taken £12.7 million to date.

Under performing and new at 6 this week is the Clint Eastwood directed Jersey Boys. Taking just £415,608 on it's debut this could be set to be one of Eastwood's worst performing films.

Also not doing as well as expected is Kevin Costner's return to the big screen in 3 Days to Kill. The McG directed film only managed £324,560 over the weekend.

This time last year Man of Steel kept it's place at the top leaving World War Z to debut in the runner up spot.

Five years ago Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen made a debut at the top knocking off The Hangover from it's debut position at the top.

Ten years ago Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban stayed at the top leaving Mean Girls to make it's debut at three with The Day After Tomorrow staying at 2.

Fifteen years ago The Matrix was refusing to shift off the top and the highest new film was Cruel Intentions at three.

17th June 2014

It was a largely static week this week at the Uk box office, no surprise as there was no big new release and the FIFA World Cup started with England's first game on Saturday night.

With all that going on it was a surprise to see 22 Jump Street retain the top spot with a weekend gross of £2.2 million, this brings the films total to £9.8 million after 10 days of release.

Maleficent, X-Men Days of Future Past and Edge of Tomorrow all stayed in their respective places for another week with only Maleficent taking over a million pound from those 3.

Highest new film of the week goes to Oculus which took a less than expected £413 thousand, although there were previews of How to Train Your Dragon 2 which beat it with £519 thousand, this wont count on this chart and go to their debut in a few weeks.

Other new films this week are
Belle at 7
Devils Knot at 10

This time last year Man of Steel too the top spot on it;s debut weekend of release knocking After Earth to the runner up spot.

Five years ago The Hangover surprised all and hot the top spot on it's debut and knocked Terminator Salvation into second place.

Ten years ago Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was still the top film and with a fairly still top 5 Connie and Carla was the top new film at 5.

Fifteen years ago The Matrix was the top new film of the week making it's debut at the top knocking Notting Hill into second place.

26th June 2013

Despite the threat of World War Z at UK multiplexes last weekend the Man of Steel manages to hold himself at the top.

Superman entered it's second weekend of release in a good position with after a strong opening weekend and managed a good £5 million take which not only kept it at the top but also brings it's total to over £21 million.

Entering this week in the runner up spot is Brad Pitt fighting Zombies in World War Z which took £4.5 million, coming close to Superman.

As I predicted World War Z wasn't strong enough to knock Man of Steel from the top spot.

Last year Lincoln was new at the top, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter that is, debuting on it's first week of release knocking Men in Black 3 into the runner up spot.

Five years ago The Hulk was still the top film on it's second week of release while British indie film Adulthood was the top new film at 4.

Ten years ago sequel 2 Fast 2 Furious was new at the top of the chart knocking The Matrix Reloaded into second place.

Fifteen years ago Nicolas Cage and Meg Ryan were at the top with City of Angels displacing The Wedding Singer from the top.

20th June 2013

Nothing could stop the Man of Steel from taking the top of the UK box office this week as Zack Snyers new take on Superman enters at the top.

We all saw it coming, like a speeding bullet perhaps, the re-imagined Superman franchise achieved big numbers last weekend. During it's opening weekend it took £11.2 million in Britain making it the 36 best opening weekend ever in the UK. After Earth falls into second place, not bad considering the bad reviews it's had.

Last year Prometheus was still at the top of the UK box office and during a quiet week for new releases Rocks of Ages was the highest new film at 4.

Five years go Sex and the City got knocked from the top spot into 2nd as The Incredible Hulk took over during it's opening weekend.

Ten years ago it was still all about The Matrix Reloaded riding the top spot while the highest new film was Identity at 3.

Fifteen years ago it was still The Wedding Singer at the top, and with almost no new films out that week the highest new film was Stiff Upper Lips right down at 10.
