Action film Battle: Los Angeles fights its way to the top of the UK box office this week de-throwning Rango in the process.
There was not a lot of hype for the film really, but Battle: Los Angeles still manages to take a fairly modest £1.8 million pound this week. The film stars Aaron Eckhart with a story about aliens invading Los Angeles, not the most original of stories but always a crowd pleaser. The film is top in the US as well.
Falling a single place this week is Rango. The Animated film with the voice of Johnny Depps takes £1.5 million bringing its 2 week gross to £ 3,615,885.
Climbing up a single place this week is the Liam Neeson thriller Unknown which adds just over a million pound to its gross so after 2 weeks it's now taken £ 3,161,588.
Falling to fourth is The Adjustment Bureau with a weekend gross of £911,863 taking its total to £3,082,693 and then new at 5 is Hall Pass which takes a lower than expected £900,936.
This week's box office chart is a lot lower than last week's where Alice in Wonderland was still riding high on number one with a weekend of £7.3 million and a total gross of nearly £23 million. Shutter Island and Green Zone took over a 2 million each and Avatar was still hanging on with over half a million pound, its total gross in the UK had reached nearly £90 million.
