Nothing seemed to be able to move Fast and Furious 7 off the top spot, no matter how much they tried. After 10 days on general release, the film has managed to take in just over £26 million which is ahead of Fifty Shades of Grey’s £25 million over the same period.

Four new films did manage to get into this week’s chart which includes comedy sequel Paul Blart Mall Cop 2 hitting the number eight spot, drama based on a true story starring Helen Mirren with Woman in Gold going in at number seven, the return of Keanu Reeves to the thriller genre in John Wick which went straight in at number six and teen high school comedy in the Duff which went in at number four.

Missing the chart all together was terrible comedy sequel Hot Tub Time Machine 2 which failed to even cross the £100,000 mark, despite being shown in 198 screens. Lost River failed to make the chart as well, however the movie was only shown on 16 sites, it did manage to do better than Ethan Hawke’s new drama Good Kill which, despite being shown on more than 120 screens, only managed to take £44,000

Upcoming – With a quiet week ahead when it comes to new movies, Fast and Furious 7 should be at the top of the chart for a third week, if, however, you are looking for something new, then you have thriller Child 44 starring Tom Hardy, drama A Little Chaos and horror film The Town That Dreaded Sundown.

US Top 5
Very little has changed with the US chart this week with Furious 7 holding on to the top spot and speeding past the $250 million mark, in fact the movie is on course to become the first film of 2015 to pass the $1 billion at the worldwide box office (and Universal’s first ever).

One new film did manage to find its way into this week’s chart in the form of Romantic drama The Longest Ride which went in at number three.
