Well, nothing seemed to be able to move both last week’s number one and two movies, so Big Hero 6 remains at the top of the chart with Kingsman: The Secret Service following behind in a close second.

Even though there was no new number one this week, there was still three new entries in the form of controversial comedy The Interview which went in at a low number ten, this is down to the film already being available via on-demand methods.

Other new entries in the chart included drama based on the life of Martin Luther King JR in Selma which went in at number six, delayed Sci-Fi action film Jupiter Ascending which went in at number four and brilliant claymation adventure Shaun the Sheep which bleated and jumped into the number three spot.

Upcoming – There is only one film of note that is released this week as other studios seemed really scared of it… that film is Fifty Shades of Grey.

10. The Interview – (NE) – £283,811
9. Taken 3 – £323,346 – £17,180,518
8. Into the Woods – £326,355 – £8,912,600

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
