Here’s the second of our new weekly look at the UK Box Office Top Ten, courtesy of our brothers over at The Monday Movie Show

It has finally happened, the Avengers couldn’t hold on to the top spot for another week as 1 of this week’s new entries has gone and knocked it off the top spot by nearly doubling the heroes’ takings.

Only 2 new films graced this week’s top 10. First off, going in at a impressive 5th spot is martial arts action film The Raid, however it was Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest creation in the form of the Dictator that has stormed the charts by going straight into the number 1 spot.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
