Ten years ago
Pride and Prejudice stays at the top for another week while A History of Violence is the highest new entry at 2.

Fifteen years ago Hollow Man debutes at the top of the box office knocking off Me Myself and Irene off.

Twenty years ago
Apollo 13 stays at the top while Species is the highest new entry coming in at 2.

Twenty five years ago
Presumed Innocent comes in at at the top knocking off Another 48 Hours from the top.

This weeks top 3 is unchanged from last week meaning that the true story of an expedition to the summit of Everest is still the number one film.

It was a quiet weekend with Everest only taking £1.9 million during it's second weekend of release, this brings it's total gross after 10 days to £6.8 million.

The static top 3 means the highest new film of the week comes in at 4, Drew Barrymore and Toni Collette star the the romantic comedy Miss You Already.

Surprisingly positive reviews haven't helped the film that much and the film debuts with only £487,247.

By far the biggest total grossing film on the box office this week is Minions which just about hangs onto the top 15 and has grossed to date £46.3 million, its still not reached Despicable Me's total gross of £47 million but its not far behind.

There should be a big change in next weeks chart with Ridley Scotts The Martian opening, Robert De Niro in The Intern and a new adaptation of Macbeth with Michael Fassbender.
