This week in the UK Seth Rogan and Zac Efron hit the top spot with their comedy Bad Neighbours which outsells The Amazing Spider-man 2.
Bad Neighbours was released at the UK box office on 9th May this year, and after some controversy over box office taking for advance screenings took a very good £8.4 million on it's debut.
The controversy was down to 2 weeks of preview screening being added to the opening weekend take, so the film was actually released 2 weeks earlier and only took about £2 million on it;s debut weekend proper.
Despite this the film hung around the box office for 6 weeks and had a nice steady drop down the chart and took just why of £16 million during it's box office run, it is the 249th highest grossing film in the UK ever!
Falling into second place is The Amazing Spider-man 2 which topped the video chart last week.
Other new film this week are
Brick Mansions at 7
Survivor at 9
The Angriest Man in Brooklyn at 15
Quite interesting that we have 2 Posthumous films on the UK video chart this week in the shape of Paul Walkers Brick Mansions and Robin Williams The Angriest Man in Brooklyn.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 makes it's UK home video chart debut at the top this week, as you would have expected, replacing last weeks top film Captain America.
Spider-Man's second amazing film was released at the box office on April 18th this year with a debut week at the top of the box office chart.
It's stayed in the top position for 3 weeks before it fell quite hard out of the box office chart spending just 6 weeks at cinemas.
During it's 6 week run though it did gross a quite respectable £23.6 million making it the 119th top film in the UK, worldwide it grossed $706 million making it the 63rd top film evert.
Spider-Man's sequel performed roughly on par with it's predecessor which spent an extra week at the UK box office and grossed a little more at £25 million.
Last weeks top film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier fell just a single place this week to number 2.
I can't go a week without mentioning Disney's Frozen and this week it jumps up another place and goes back into the top 3.
Check out the full UK home video chart.
