UK & US Box office countdown WE 22 Sept 2014

September 25th, 2014 by Stuart Miller Comments

Last week the Boxtrolls managed to charm the paying public and found its way at the top of the chart, it seems that the charm hasn’t worn off as it spends a second week at number one, despite a big challenge from this week’s highest new entry A Walk Among The Tombstones which only missed out on the top spot by £20,000.

Other new entries in this week’s chart went to strange documentary 20,000 Days on Earth which sees us spend a day in the life of musician Nick Cave. The other new entry went to British drama The Riot Club which went in at number five.

Missing out on the top ten by a huge margin was teen drama thriller The Giver which could only manage a very lonely number 14 spot and failed to even pass the £200,000 mark, despite it opening in more than 230 screens.

Upcoming – The Boxtrolls might spend a third week at the top of the chart as this week’s crop of new releases shouldn’t challenge it that much, if however you are after something new to watch then you have thriller The Equalizer, British comedy What we Did On Our Holiday and very dark thriller Maps to the Stars.
