Nothing seems to be able to move The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel off the top of the chart as it spends its third week at number one.

It was a very quiet week for new films with only two entering this week’s chart. Firstly, going in at number four was war drama Suite Francaise. The highest new entry of the week went to the latest Liam neeson thriller Run All Night which managed to find its way into the number two spot despite some very below average reviews.

Upcoming – This week sees an insane amount of new films with something for nearly everybody; on offer is the latest animated adventure from Dreamworks with Home, the second part of the Divergent franchise with Insurgent, quirky and grisly comedy The Voices, the latest beautiful animated film from Studio Ghibli with The Tale of Princess Kaguya, Jason Statham stars in thriller Wild Card, Sean Penn produces and stars in action thriller The Gunman, horror with Dark Summer and Canne-winning drama in Mommy.

No other new film went into this week’s top five however last week’s number one, Chappie, did fall to this week’s fifth spot, dropping off nearly 58%.
