It was obvious that Fast and Furious 7 couldn’t hold on to the top spot any longer as it had to fight against Avengers: Age of Ultron, the film not only went straight in at number one but broke a few records on its way.

Ultron took an impressive £18 million in its opening weekend, making it the highest debut opening for any film released in April and the fourth highest opening of any film.

There was only one other new entry in this week’s chart in the form of event Cavalleria Rustica/Pagliacci – Met Opera which went in at number five.

Upcoming – This weeks sees the release of 24 films, however none of them should be able to cause much of a threat to the Avengers; if you are looking for a new film to see then the bigger films on offer are Skype horror Unfriended, animated kid’s adventure in Two by Two: Oops… The Ark Has Gone, drama Far From the Madding Crowd and Sci-Fi action sequel Monsters: Dark Continent.
