Last week Spy was sitting high at the top of the charts laughing away at itself unaware that, in the distance, was a huge dinosaur-shaped behemoth ready to knock it off its perch, the film in question is, of course, Jurassic World and not only did it knock Spy off the top spot it did much much better than anyone thought.
It was predicted that Jurassic World would do well however nobody could of guessed that it would do as well as it did, so well that it scored the highest takings for a debut movie this year ahead of Avengers: Age of ultron and Fifty Shades of Grey.
Despite Jurassic World dominating the chart, there was still one other new entry in the form of Musical drama London Road which went in at number eight.
When it comes to new films this week, it seems that distributors are giving Jurassic World a bit of breathing space, so none of the three main release should challenge the dinosaur epic. On offer is the big screen outing of the Entourage crew, Nicholas Sparks latest romantic drama with The Longest Ride and Ian McKellen steps in the shoes of Sherlock Holmes with Mr Holmes
