As predicted last week, Godzilla could only hold on to the top spot for one week as it has been knocked off by the might of the X-Men in X-Men: Days of Future Past.

In more good news for the X-Men, the film has become the highest grossing debut weekend film this year beating The Amazing Spider-Man 2 into second place.

Elsewhere in the chart, we have two other new entries in the form of terrible comedy Blended starring Adam Sandler which went in at number five and the animated adventures of Postman Pat in his first movie which went in at number four.

New Releases – It’s a big week for new films as there is three huge movies to choose from, firstly thriller Edge of Tomorrow starring Tom Cruise, your second choices is Disney’s dark telling of the witch Maleficent from Sleeping beauty and your final choice is comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West starring, written and directed by Seth MacFarlane.
