UK top ten box office countdown (WE 24th March 2014)

March 27th, 2014 by Stuart Miller Comments

Well Need for Speed couldn’t hold on to the top spot for a second week as it has been knocked off by a film that has slowly been creeping up in the chart, that film in question is Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel.

Three new films found their way into the bottom end of the chart not providing that much of a competition on the top five, firstly going in at number eight was drama Labor Day, doing one better by going in at number seven was the second drama of the week A Long Way Down and finally rounding out the triple bill of drama new entries was Starred Up which went in at number six.

New Releases – It’s a big week for new films and it seems like the box office needs it after it taking a huge 45% loss on the previous week. So the new films of the week are superhero sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the return of the Muppets in Muppets Most Wanted, action film Legend of Hercules and small British horror The Borderlands
