UK top ten box office countdown (WE 26th August 2013)

August 29th, 2013 by Stuart Miller Comments

Well it seems that Kick-Ass 2 could only hold on to the top spot for just one week as it has had its ass kicked by the rest of the chart.

Three new films found their way into this week’s top ten, first off, going in at number four was Twilight wannabe Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, hitting the number two spot was comedy movie We’re the Millers, however it was Elysium that went straight into the number one spot.

New releases – a bit of a weak week for new films this week, however if you want a new movie to go and see then you have comedy drama The Way Way Back, horror thriller You’re Next and over-the-top action film Pain and Gain.
