Despite a modest drop of 36% from last week, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel has managed to hold on to the top spot for a second week with the film taking a healthy £8.46 million after just 11 days.

There was a couple of new films in this week’s top ten in the form of fantastic drama Still Alice going in at number seven and Neil Blomkamp’s latest Sci-Fi film Chappie hitting the number four spot.

Upcoming – a very lackluster week this week when it comes to new films as none of them have box office gold written on them apart from Liam Neeson latest film Run All Night, the only other alternatives are drama Suite Francaise and mathmatical drama X+Y

10. It Follows, £229,927 from 254 sites. Total: £819,105
9. Unfinished Business, £394,177 from 408 sites (new)
8. Still Alice, £401,565 from 86 sites (new)
7. Kingsman: The Secret Service, £450,947 from 314 sites. Total: £15,305,859
6. Shaun the Sheep the Movie, £611,005 from 557 sites. Total: £12,388,932
5. Big Hero 6, £818,737 from 533 sites. Total: £18,626,512
4. Chappie, £1,015,058 from 459 sites (new)
3. Fifty Shades of Grey, £1,066,813 from 481 sites. Total: £32,706,648
2. Focus, £1,312,963 from 466 sites. Total: £4,253,274
1. The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, £1,957,256 from 604 sites. Total: £8,640,646

US Top 5
Over in the US and Chappie did slightly better, however it still failed to hit box office gold after taking a very low $13 million in its opening weekend, this still didn’t stop the film from going in at number one and knocking Focus off the top of the chart.

The only other new film in this week’s top five went to British comedy drama The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel which did really well for itself by going in at number three.

5. The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water
4. Kingsman
3. The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel – (NE)
1. Focus
1. Chappie – (NE)
