Finally, the hellspawn that is Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie has been knocked off the top spot after spending a few weeks at the top, the film replacing it is the fourth in the Transformers series with Transformers: Age of Extinction.
In more good news for the latest Transformers film, it has becoming the highest opening for a film this year, beating X-Men: Days of Future Past and The Amazing Spider-Man 2, it has also become the highest opening for any of the Transformers films. It’s not all good news though as if you take out the amount the film took in previews then it only took £3.1 million in its official opening weekend, putting it in tenth place overall.
Other new films in this week’s chart included romantic comedy Begin Again which hit the number five spot and the very positively received drama Boyhood which went in at number seven.
New releases - A couple of new films are out this week that will be trying to make some kind of impact on next week’s chart, one should be next week’s number one and the other should hopefully get nowhere near the summit. So on offer is kid’s film Pudsey the Dog: The Movie and the highly rated sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
