UK top ten box office countdown (WE 4th August 2014)

August 8th, 2014 by Stuart Miller Comments

Well Caesar’s time had to come to a end sometime and this week is that time as those Guardians of the Galaxy have fought their way to the top spot.

In more good news for Guardians of the Galaxy it has managed to take more in its opening weekend than both Captain America films, Thor and the first Iron Man.

The rest of the top ten featured another three new entries including one strange one, so hitting the number nine spot was the fifth in the dance series of Step up with Step Up All In, going in at number six was animated adventure The Nut Job.

Now on to the weird release of the week as Back to the Future has managed to find its way back into the top ten after being part of Secret Cinema, what’s even more special that it was only shown in one venue and it managed to take over £700,000!
