It was inevitable that the Sweeney would only spend one week at the top of the, however no new entry could knock it off the top spot as it was Paranorman which rose like a zombie to munch on the chart’s brains and take the prize.

Three new films graced this week’s top ten, first off, going in at a very low tenth spot was Oliver Stone’s latest violent thriller Savages, into the top three and we see a new entry at number three for horror film House at the End of the Street. The highest new entry this week went to violent thriller with a hint of comedy, Killing them Softly starring Brad Pitt.
