UK top ten box office countdown (WE 17th March 2014)

March 20th, 2014 by Stuart Miller Comments

 No matter how hard those Greeks fought they couldn’t hold on to the top spot for one more week as last week’s number one film, 300: Rise of an Empire, has been replaced by one of this week’s new entries: Need For Speed.

The top ten only saw one other new entry and that went to sci-fi drama thriller Under the Skin which went into the number ten spot.

New releases – This week sees very few new films released, in fact none of this week’s new release should cause much challenge on next week’s chart, however if you are after something new then you have on offer drama Labor Day, comedy About Last Night and British prison drama Starred Up.

10. Under the Skin – (NE) – £238,694
9. Mr Peabody and Sherman – £242,010 – £12,364,901
8. Escape from Planet Earth – £257,812 – £721,489
7. The Book Thief – £281,9374 – £3,366,007
6. Ride Along – £426,034 – £3,540,829
