UK top ten box office countdown (WE 30th June 2014)

July 3rd, 2014 by Stuart Miller Comments

The Fault in our Stars surprised a lot of people by going straight into the number one spot last week, however it couldn’t hold off the might of Mrs Brown with her D’Movie as it has taken over the reigns at the top of the chart.

Other new entries in this week’s chart include musical comedy Walking on Sunshine going in at number seven and food comedy drama Chef which hit the number five spot.

The strangest new entry though went to How To Train Your Dragon 2 which went in at number six as it only opened in Scotland and Ireland, there were previews of the film in England and Wales, however takings from those previews will not count until when the film gets its official release on Friday July 11th.

New Releases – Time for another strange week this week as on offer are comedy Tammy and small Sci-Fi drama The Anomaly. The main reason why it’s another strange week is down to Transformers: Age of Extinction which is out in cinemas on Saturday but are only previews up until its official release date of Thursda,y July 10th, the film will then be included in the box office the week after, this will be the same time How to Train Your Dragon 2’s takings will officially count from English and Welsh box office.
