Well the reign of The Lego Movie had to come to a end sometime and that time is now as it has been knocked off the top spot by a bunch of Greeks in the smallest amount of clothes possible, yes this week’s new number one is action sequel 300: Rise of An Empire.

There were two other new entries in this week’s top ten. Firstly, at number seven was delayed animated adventure Escape From Planet Earth. The only other new entry went to The Grand Budapest Hotel which found its way to the number three spot making it the highest grossing Wes Anderson film, the only other film from him to make more than £1 million in its first weekend was Fantastic Mr Fox.
