UK top ten box office countdown (WE 29 July 2013)

August 2nd, 2013 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

Monsters University’s reign at the top of the chart has finally come to an end thanks to one of this week’s new entries.

Two new films made their way into this week’s top ten. First off, going in at number nine was Frances Ha, the indie comedy drama from Noah Baumbach. This week’s highest new entry went to The Wolverine which found its way to the top of the chart, it’s not all good news for the film though as X-Men Origins: Wolverine managed to take nearly £2 million more in its opening weekend.

New Releases – to say that a lot of new films are out this week is a bit of na understatement, so if you want to go to the cinema to see something new then you have comedy film The Heat, horror film from James Wan The Conjuring, Studio Ghibli returns to the big screen with From Up on Poppy Hill, Nicolas Winding Refn teams up again with Ryan Gosling in Only God Forgives, Bruce Willis is back with the gang in Red 2 and those blue annoying little things are back in The Smurf’s 2.
