For a second week, the might of Jurassic World fought off competition from anything that hoped to get near the top of the chart.

Last week the film managed to become the fourth highest opening of any movie of all time, in its second week though it has taken the honour of having the highest weekend takings of any film in its following week of release, that accolade previously belonged to the final Harry Potter film.

Despite there being no new number one, the chart saw three new films and one new event making their debut; new entries in the chart included romantic drama The Longest Ride hitting the number seven spot, comedy based on the tv series of the same name with Entourage going in at number five and small British drama about the final days of Sherlock Holmes with Mr Holmes going in at number four.

The highest new entry this week though went to event Take That Live which hit the number two spot with takings just shy of £1 million.

Upcoming – A lot of films will be finding their way into the cinema this week but none as big as Minions which sees those loveable yellow characters getting an origin story. Other new films on offer include dark comedy thriller Knock Knock, action thriller Everly, indie western Slow West and screwball comedy She’s Funny That Way.

US Chart

Jurassic world dominance over the chart across the world continues very strongly in the US with the film racking up an impressive $106 million in its second week taking its US total so far to a huge $402 million.

There was some stiff competition from Pixar’s latest film Inside Out which found its way into the number two spot and became the highest opening for any new IP.

The only other new entry in this week’s chart went to comedy drama Dope which went in at number five.
