UK top ten box office countdown (WE 9th June 2014)

June 11th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Well Maleficent could only hold on to the top spot for one week thanks to the comedy duo of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum returning with 22 Jump Street, which has gone straight into the number one spot.

In more good news for 22 Jump Street the movie has managed to triple what the original took, it’s normally the rule of thumb when it comes to sequels, usual they take around double what the original has, however this has been more successful than most.

Only two other new entries in this week’s chart. Firstly, going in at number nine, was critically panned Grace of Monaco, the only other new entry went in at number seven which was the special event to commemorate the events of World War 2 with D-day 70 years on.

New Releases – Not a big week when it comes to new films, on offer is horror Oculus, real life drama with Devil’s Knot and period drama Belle.

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….
