It has finally happened, Iron Man 3’s reign at the top of the chart has finally come to an end.

Only two new movies managed to get into the top ten this week. First off going in at number seven was drama Mud starring Matthew McConaughey. This week’s highest new entry and going straight into the number one spot was Star Trek Into Darkness, the good news for the film keeps coming as not only has it managed to take 70% more worldwide in it’s opening weekend than the first movie but it’s also taken more in the UK box office than its counterpart.

Two new films out next week will attempt to topple Star Trek of its perch: Baz Luhrmann’s version of The Great Gatsby and the crew return for for there sixth outing in Fast and Furious 6.
