UK top ten box office countdown (WE 01 May 2013)

May 9th, 2013 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

I guess it will come as no shock to anybody to find out that Iron Man 3 has spent its second week on top the chart, despite a drop of nearly 50 per cent, as none of this week’s new entries were strong enough.

A total of four new films entered this week’s chart, first off, going in at number eight, was revenge thriller starring Colin Farrell in Dead Man Down, hitting the chart one spot above at number seven was comedy film I’m So Excited. Into the top five and at number four was children’s dance movie All Stars, this week’s highest new entry though went to comedy 21 and Over which went straight into the number two spot.

When it comes to new films trying to knock Iron Man off the top spot, this week’s big new release Star Trek Into Darkness might just have the power to do that. There is a couple of other new films out this week as well, including thriller Deadfall, drama Mud and action film Vehicle 19.
