Well Star Trek Into Darkness could only hold on to the top spot for one week, in fact it was knocked down to number three thanks to the only two new films in this week’s chart.
As said above, there was only two new films in this week’s top ten. First off, going in at number three was The Great Gatsby, the film by Australian director Baz Luhrmann was his highest grossing debut weekend film. The highest new entry, and this week’s new number one, went to Fast and Furious 6, not only is it the highest taking Fast and Furious film in its debut weekend, it has managed to to take more in its first weekend than the whole takings from the first three Fast and Furious films combined.
Out This Week: The big films keep on coming and next week’s chart should have two more of them, animated film Epic from the studio behind Ice Age and the wolfpack is back in The Hangover Part III. It’s not all about the big films though as two of my favorite films from the brilliant Studio Ghibli are getting a re-releases, both My Neighbour Totaro and Grave of the Fireflies are getting a 25th anniversary release.
