June 4th, 2014 by Stuart Miller Comments

As with the US, the X-Men could only hold on to the top spot for one week and again as with the US, Maleficent was the film to knock it off the top spot.

Other new films in this week’s chart included the final film from Ken Loach, Jimmy’s Hill, which went in at number ten, western comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West which could only manage the number four spot and Sci-Fi action film Edge of Tomorrow which hit the new three spot.

New Releases – A bit of a packed week this week when it comes to new films, it’s a nice mixture of big films and a few smaller ones. So, on offer is comedy sequel 22 Jump Street, drama Grace of Monaco, second drama of the week with Fruitvale Station, human horror film The Sacrament and dark comedy thriller Cheap Thrills.
