Not only has last week’s number one, Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters been knocked off the top spot but it has been given a good kicking and is no longer in the top five.

Four new films graced this week’s chart. First off, going in at number seven was comedy film The Guilt Trip. Hitting the number four spot was action thriller Parker starring Jason Statham, doing better however was Steven Soderbergh’s Side Effects which managed to find its way to the number two spot. This week’s highest new entry and the new number one went to Sam Raimi’s OZ The Great and Powerful.
