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.

Unsurprising this week that the comedy smash The Inbetweeners 2 stays at the top of the UK box office for another week, also no strong new releases helped it's cause.
Proving to be as popular as the original, The Inbetweeners stayed at the top of the tree with a weekend take of £3.4 million which brings its 10 day total gross to £22.3 million.
The first movie had taken £25 million by this point in it's run so this movie is a tiny bit behind but should end up at about the same figure by the end of it's cinema run.
Holding steady at 2 is Guardians of the Galaxy which means that the highest new film is The Expendables 3 at number 3.
This is the lowest grossing film in the (current) trilogy with the first film taking £3 million on it's opening and the followup taking £2 million.
Also worth mentioning this week is Disneys frozen which despite having had a few months on home video now makes a re-appearance on the box office at number 15 with a nearly £100,000 take.
Back to the Future keeps it's appearance in the top 10 due to it's Secret Cinema event showings in London.
One year ago this week Kick-Ass 2 made it's debut on the chart with an entry at number 1 knocking Grown Ups 2 to 4th.
Five years ago The Time Travelers Wife took the number 1 spot on it's debut knocking Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince to number 4.
Ten years ago I, Robot surrendered the top spot to new entry The Bourne Supremacy.
Fifteen years ago Will Smith and Kevin Klein hit the top spot with Wild Wild West on it's debut week knocking Austin Powers The Spy Who Shagged Me to number 3.

Alan Partridge Alpha Papa was only strong enough for a single week at the top and this week we have, for a second week, an all new top 3 with Kick-Ass 2 leading the way.
The superhero film, the follow up to 2010's Kick-Ass, takes the top spot with a weekend box office of £2.4 million, in comparison to it's predecessor which has an early April release instead, it's over a million lower, Kick-Ass making £3.8 million on it's opening.
Also opening strong in the top 3 are Disney's Planes and the US hit 2 Guns with Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg at 2 and 3 respectively.
Making a massive tumble at the box office is Alan Partridge, who falls to 7 this week with £852,967 after a fairly successful debut last week.
This time last year Brave was still at the top and doing big numbers holding off The Bourne Legacy which opened in second place.
Five years ago The Dark Knight went back to the top of the box office in it's fourth week of release, the highest new release was the Adam Sandler comedy You Don't Mess with the Zohan, hairdressing at it's best!
Ten years ago American Pie: The Wedding was debuting at the top knocking off Pirates of The Caribbean: The Curse of The Black Pearl after a single week.
Fifteen years ago Bruce Willis was still stopping astroids at hte top with Armageddon while the British The Avengers (not to be mistaken with the superhero film) was the highest new film at 3.
