Despite it being Halloween new horror film Ouija could not make it's way to the top of the UK box office and instead the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles went back to the top in their third week of release.
Taking nearly £1.5 million for the weekend the Turtles have now spent 3 weeks on release and have taken a total of £11.7 million. The return of the Turtles for a new generation has been a massive success and has so far taken $434.5 million across the world.
Highest new film this week is Ouija which has taken £1.4 million, arguably because of the Halloween weekend and people looking for a fright, the film could disappear quite quickly.
Last weeks top film, Fury, falls to number 3 this week with £1.2 million. It was in reality a very tight top 3 this week with only about £200,000 separating the top films.

2nd October 2014
At the UK box office this week there is a first for UK cinema, the single day screening of Billy Elliot the musical, screened live at cinemas across the country tops the box office.
Event cinema has become bigger and bigger in the UK over the last couple of years, Back to the Future this August was massive and Doctor Who has had a couple, none so far have come close to Billy Elliot's £1.9 million gross.
Surprisingly it beats into second place the much anticipated The Equalizer starring Denzel Washington, it was a close race but the 80's TV show remake's gross of £1.89 million was just shy of the number 1 film.
