This week Disney had a double dip on the UK box office with Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Muppets Most Wanted hitting at one and two.
Captain America, the latest from the Marvel Avengers (Avengers Assemble as it's called in the UK) universe of films, was by far and away the better grossing film taking £6 million. The film is a sequel to 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger which took £3 million on it's July debut.
Muppets Most Wanted is the follow up to 2012 The Muppets. That film took £2.6 million on it's debut, this one took a very similar £2.2 million.
New releases this week are:
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Muppets Most Wanted
The Legend of Hercules
20 Feet From Stardom
Also worth a mention is that after 2 weeks off the top 15, Frozen has returned at number 15.
This time last year The Croods held onto the top spot holding off G.I. Joe: Retaliation which entered at two.
Five years ago Nicolas Cage starred in the number one films Knowing which also debuted there nocking Marley and Me to number two.
Ten years ago The Passion of Christ stayed at the top keeping Dawn of the Dead at bay debuting at number two.
Fifteen years ago The Rugrats Movie took the number one spot on it's debut knocking Waking Ned Devine down to three with Payback entering at two.
26th March 2014
With no new releases making much of an impact at the box office this week there is a climber to the top, Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel which was at 2 last week.
It's third week of general release, and a window with few new films results in a £1.2 million weekend taking Budapest Hotel to the top, and its the only film this week to gross over a million pound.
Last weeks top film, Need for Speed, falls to two in it's second week of release.
Highest new film of the week is at 6, Starred Up directed by David Mackenzie which grosses nearly £500,000 over the weekend.
This weeks new films:
A Long Way Down
About Last Night
Yves Saint Laurent
This time last year animated tale The Croods took the number one spot on it's debut weekend knocking Oz The Great and Powerful to 3.
Five years ago Marley and Me was still riding the top spot while Paul Blart Mall Cop came in at the runner up spot.
Ten years ago it was still Starsky and Hutch at number 1, a strong hold with the whole top 4 meant the highest new film was at 4, Open Range.
Fifteen years ago Waking Ned Devine was the top new film entering the box office, knocking A Bugs Life into second place.
