UK top ten box office countdown (WE 2nd September 2013) PLUS The biggest hits of the summer

September 5th, 2013 by Stuart Miller Comments

Elysium could only hold on to the top spot for one week as the boys from one of the most annoying bands ever created managed to knock it off the top spot.

Four new films went into this week’s top ten, first off going in at number seven was horror thriller You’re Next, doing one better by going in at number six was indie comedy drama The Way Way Back. Into this week’s top five and at number four was dumb action film Pain and Gain, but this week’s highest new entry went to One Direction: This is Us which went straight into the number one spot.

New Releases – a couple of small films are on offer this week, so if you want to go to the cinema and watch something new then you have Sci-Fi action film Riddick, British comedy About Time and insane thriller No One Lives.

As a little extra bonus I have also provided the top 10 films of the summer.
