UK top ten box office countdown (WE 27th January 2014)

January 30th, 2014 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

Well, despite a few new releases this week none of them could knock the Wolf of Wall Street off the top of the chart for the second week.

Three new films went into this week’s chart. Firstly,  going in at number seven was dysfunctional family drama August: Osage County, doing one better by going in at number six was the latest film from the Coen brothers Inside Llewyn Davis. This week’s highest new entry went to spy thriller Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit which managed to find its way to the number three spot.

One noticeable absence from this week’s chart is the Stallone/De Niro boxing comedy Grudge Match which failed to make it into the top ten, in fact it could only manage to go into the number 14 spot.

New Releases – another week where we have a few films to choose from, so on offer this week is fantasy film I, Frankenstein, thriller drama Lone Survivor, romantic comedy That Awkward Moment and drama Out of the Furnace.
