At the UK box office this week Luc Besson's directed Lucy about a woman using 100% of her brain takes over at the top.
Starring Scarlett Johansson Lucy tops the box office on it's debut week of release with a weekend gross of £3.07 million.
Compared to Luc Bessons previous films this is by far the best opening he has had, Arthur and the Invisibles is his highest grossing British release which took just over a million on it's release in 2007.
Scarlett Johansson is part of the Marvel Avengers universe so has seen some astronomical releases over the past few years and so it's a little unfair to compare!
Falling into second place is last weeks top film The Inbetweeners 2 which has now grossed £27.6 million after 3 weeks of release.
There is a few other new entries this week which are
Into the Storm at 4
Deliver Us From Evil at 5
What if at 6
Doctor Who: Deep Breath at 8, from a single day special showing on Saturday
Two Days, One Night at 14
Last year Matt Damon was starring in Elysium which entered at the top of the box office knocking Kick-Ass 2 right down to 7.
Five years ago Inglourious Basterds was the new top film in the UK knocking The Time Travers Wife down to the runner up spot.
Ten years ago M. Night Shyamalan released The Village which hit the top spot on it's debut with The Bourne Supremacy falling a single place to number 2.
Fifteen years ago Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace reclaimed the top spot knocking Austin Powers The Spy Who Shagged me to number 2, highest new film was Micky Blue Eys at 3.

As a cold snap hits Britain and threatens to stop everyone from going to the cinema Les Misérables holds it's place at number one without much threat from the only new release.
Les Misérables dropped almost 50% from it's debut weekend gross but still managed £4.4 million bringing it's total gross after 10 days of release to £17.3 million.
The new film from cult director Quentin Tarantino, starring Jammie Foxx, gives a decent performence on it's debut weekend and grosses £2.8 million, not Tarentino's best, that honor goes to Inglourious Basterds in 2009.
This time last year War Horse was still riding high at the top with a weekend gross of £3,202,493, while Haywire from director Steven Soderbergh was new at 2 with £1,197,866.
Five years ago the Oscar nominated film No Country For Old Men was beaten to the top spot by Aliens Vs Predator Requiem which grossed £1,970,363 on it's debut.
Ten years ago the second Lord of the Rings film ended it's 4 week run at the top, giving way to Eminem in 8 Mile which debuted with £4,440,334.
Fifteen years ago The Devils Advocate starring Keanu Reeves and Al Pacino debuted at the top with £1,300,733.
8th March 2010
It was the big night on Sunday for the Oscars, which meant it was the big night for the Razzies on Saturday, the two ceremonies that celebrate the two end of the scale for the film industry, and in a first for the industry Sandra Bullock received one of each.
On Saturday night Sandra Bullock was announced as the worst actress of the year for her role in All About Steve, and she had the dignity to be at the ceremony to get the award, and then on Sunday night she was announced as bet actress for her role in The Blind Side, and she was there to get the Oscar.
The big winner for the Razzies though was Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen which took awards for worst film and worst director, and quite predictable Michael Bay was not there to get the award.
The next night, and of course the one which everyone talks about, Katherine Bigalo beat her ex-husband and scooped the best film and best director, and unbelievable is the first woman to pick up such an award.
On the Oscar front Jeff Bridges also got an award for his role in Crazy Heart while Christoph Waltz and Mo'Nique won supporting Oscars for Inglourious Basterds and Precious.
In all the weekend was a predictable night for awards and makes you wonder if the whole awards things is getting a little boring?
3rd February 2010
It's the time of year again when the Oscar hype machine will go into overdrive in the period between the nominations being announced and the ceremony itself.
This year there are two films which are ahead of the rest, and two films which are total contrasts in style. James Cameron has continued to astound everyone by getting a nomination for best picture and best director, and his film Avatar has managed nine nomination in total with the others being in the technical department.
Kathryn Bigelow's (who happens to be Camerons ex-wife) The Hurt Locker has also managed nine nominations, best picture and best director being two of then, the picture has also got a nomination for it's star Jeremy Renner as a leading actor.
The best picture category this year include 10 films (is that too many) so we have the likes of The Blind Side and Inglourious Basterds along side British hopeful An Education as well as South African sci-fi film District 9, and a first in that Up is nominated for best film and best animated film.
Best film and director is going to be a battle between Cameron and Bigelow, but the rest of the awards are an open field, so lets wait and see what heppens on March 7th at the 82nd Academy Awards Ceremony.
