Despite there being 7 new releases hitting the top 15 films this week the top five films in the UK remain unchanged from last week with Suicide Squad remaining at the top.
On its second weekend of release the DC comics anti-hero picture took £4.2 million, down just over 66% from the previous weekend.
The film has now taken £22 million during its 10 days of release and is not that far behind stable mate Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice.
With the rest of the top 4 remaining fairly static the highest new film of the week is Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates starring Zak Efron and Anna Kendrick.
The comedy film took just over a million pound on its debut weekend in the UK, but the suspicion is it will fall fast in the coming weeks ready for a home video release.
Big suprise of the week is the Disney remake of Petes Dragon landing at number 6 with £844,090, one of the Mouse Houses smallest hits in a while.
Other new films this week are Newrve at number 7, The Shallows at number 8, Mohenjo Daro at number 11, Rustom at number 12 and finally Wiener Dog at number 14.
Longest running film this week and highest total gross is The Secret Life of Pets, 8 weeks on the chart and £33 million.

As expected this week there was no stopping Dawn of the Planet of the Apes as it very easily and without competition took to the top of the charts on it;s debut weekend.
Grossing £8.7 million from Thursday to Sunday it took more than the rest of the box office combined.
Dawn well and truly out preformed it predecessor Rise of the planet of the Apes which took £5.8 million on it's debut weekend in August 2011, it went on to gross £20.5 in total.
Dawn should go on to out-gross that film and could come close to £25 - 30 million in the UK.
Also worth a mention this weekend is two even movies that got themselves inside the top 5 on the box office chart, Monty Python Live (Mostly) made number 4 with £1.8 million which Andre Rieu took him Maastricht concert to number 5 with £830,000.

14th July 2014
There was do doubt this week that Dawn of the Planet of the Apes would be the top film in America, and it does so with ease over the rest of the box office.
A very good $73 million dollars assured that the new apes film would be big and it not only far out grossed the rest of the box office but out grossed it predecessor.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes $55 million on it's American opening, it was a (nearly) new franchise so that may have effected it, Dawn has had very positive reviews and Rise was considered a big hit in the end.
Falling into the runner up spot this week is Transformers: Age of Extinction, two weeks at the top has earned it over $200 million in the US.
