It will come as no surprise to find out that Paddington couldn’t hold on to the top spot any longer as the final outing to Middle Earth loomed over it, so with that said, the final part in the Hobbit trilogy with The Hobbit the Battle of the five Armies is this week’s new number one.

Only one other new film found its way into the chart and that was animated adventure for the young ‘uns with Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Neverbeast.

Upcoming – over the next few weeks we have a big selection of films, out on Friday 19th is comedy sequel Dumb and Dumber To and the final outing for the Night at the Museum series with Secret of the Tomb.  Out on Boxing day is a interesting mixture of films, including the remake of Annie, powerful drama Unbroken, Ridley Scott’s Exodus and Tim Burton’s new film Big Eyes.
