Well About Time could only manage one week at the top of the chart as it had stiff competition from a few big hitters.

Four films entered this week’s top ten, firstly, going in at number five, was animated film Justin and the Knights of Valor. Heading into the top three each space is taken up by a new entry, hitting the number three spot was insane over-the-top action film White House Down, Hitting number two was formula one racing drama Rush. This week’s highest new entry went to horror sequel Insidious Chapter 2 which went straight into the number one spot.

New Releases – Only two new films of note are out this week, so if you want to see something new at the cinema then you have thriller The Call and Men in Black wannabe R.I.P.D
