It will come as no suprise to hear that the latest James Bond film, SPECTRE, has gone straight into the number one spot, breaking many many records along the way.
Taking an insane £41.3m in its opening week, it has become the highest grossing debut movie of all time, knocking Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban of that perch in which it was their for the last 11 years.
If you, however, take out the preview takings for SPECTRE (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday) out of the equation then it didn’t do as well as the last James bond film Skyfall or the final entry in the Harry Potter series.
Obviously nothing else decided to try and tackle the might of Bond, so the only other new entry in this week’s chart went to live event Tannhauser.
Upcoming – After the lacking selection of films to choose from last week, this week sees a bit of a better selection to pick from, including horror comedy Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, drama Brooklyn, over the top thriller with a dark comedic streak with Kill Your Friends and cooking drama Burnt.

A really bad week for the US chart, in fact this is the worst week for the chart in 2015 with none of the new films out this week making any kind of impact, so no new films went into this weeks top 5.
