uk and us top ten art

Pitch Perfect 2 managed to hold on to the top spot for a second week despite Mad Max: Fury Road putting up one huge fight with it missing out on the top spot by a narrow margin.

When it comes to new films we have to look at the number three spot where we find Tomorrowland: The World Beyond, the film hasn’t done as well as expected for a movie starring George Clooney and being directed by Brad Bird.
Other new films in the chart included bollywood movie Tanu Weds Manu Returns going in at number nine and horror remake Poltergeist hitting the number four spot.

Upcoming Not a big week when it comes to new films as there are only two of any note; disaster movie San Andreas and comedy drama starring Al Pachino in Danny Collins

US Chart
Doing better in the US than in the UK Tomorrowland found its way to the top of the chart, however it failed to make that much of a impact with it only taking $33 million off the back of a budget of around $190 million.

The only other new entry in this week’s chart went to horror remake Poltergeist which went in at number four.

5. Avengers: Age of Ultron
4. Poltergeist (NE)
3. Mad Max: Fury Road
2. Pitch Perfect 2
1. Tomorrowland (NE)

Stuart is co-founder and one of the hosts of the Monday movie show. Ever since the age of two he's been a huge movie fan, especially horror films since one of the first films he ever watched was Poltergeist, yes at age two. Since then he can't stop watching films and over the years it has become a bit of an obsession, but it's not just films that he has a passion for; he's also a huge videogame fanatic and has also been known for belting out the odd tune or two.
