UK top ten box office countdown (WE 28th July 2014)

July 31st, 2014 by Stuart Miller Comments

Well nothing seems to be able to move Dawn of the Planet of the Apes off the top spot, despite five new films in the chart and a drop off of around 46% on last week’s takings.

Five new films went into this week’s chart, firstly going in at number 10 was kids’ animated adventure The House of Magic, hitting the number eight spot was Bollywood film Kick, entering in at number six is kids’ adventure film Earth to Echo.

Going in to the top three spots and two of the the three films are new entries, at number three is dark thriller sequel The Purge Anarchy and at number two – and doing better than thought – is action film Hercules starring Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson.

New releases – it’s probably going to be really obvious as to what will be the new number one film next week as Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy finally hit cinemas. There is one other new film out, however I doubt it will make much of an impact, however if you want another new film then you have animated adventure The Nut Job as well.

10. The House of Magic – (NE) – £223,047
9. Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie – £228,764 – £13,890,655
8. Kick – (NE) – £239,850
7. Boyhood – £279,701 – £1,426,480
6. Earth to Echo – (NE) – £618,379
5. Transformers: Age of Extinction – £803,063 – £17,375,039
4. How to Train your Dragon 2 – £990,959 – £15,111,906
3. The Purge: Anarchy – (NE) – £1,165,143
2. Hercules – (NE) – £1,449,120
1. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes – £3,752,511 – £16,969,650

Across the Pond – Looking at the US chart and a new film went straight into the number one spot, knocking Dawn of the Planet of the Apes down to number three, the film in question is Luc Besson’s latest action film, Lucy.

Other new entries in the chart are at number 10 drama A Most Wanted Man, comedy drama And so It Goes at number seven and action film Hercules which took $29 million and found itself at number two.
