This week there is a trio of new releases which will battle it out for box office supremacy but they may have a battle on their hands with this weeks top film The Fault in Our Stars.
Biggest film of the week is Mrs Browns Boys D'Movie. The big screen debut of the BBC smash hit comedy series sees Agnes Brown and her family doing things on a bigger scale. A cult in Great Britain this could do big business and hit the top spot for a single week.
Chef is from director Jon Favreau and unlike his previous films Iron Man and Cowboys and Aliens this is a low budget low scale movie about life in a foot truck. This should see a top 5 entry on the box office.
Following on from the success of Mama Mia! and Sunshine on Leith, Walking on Sunshine is a feel good movie with lots of song performances throughout, directed by Max Giwa and Dania Pasquini this could see a top 5 entry.

With the school half term being a wet and miserable time in most parts of the UK the cinema was clearly a good option for parents as 3 animated features dominate the charts.
At the top there is no change as The Lego Movie stays for a second week taking £6 million, climbing back up a place is Mr Peabody and Sherman, while climbing to third is Disney's Tinkerbelle and the Pirate Fairy.
You have to look outside the top ten to find the highest new film, Winter's Tale enters at thirteen this week, taking £258 thousand for the weekend.
A year ago Disney was at the top with Wreck-It Ralph was still at the top of the box office while horror film Mama took the highest new position at three.
Five years ago Disney was at the top with Bolt retaining the position while new film Shopaholic entered at two.
Ten years ago The Haunted Mansion stayed at the top, from, you guessed it, Disney. Entering the highest right down at nine was Sex Lives of the Potato Man.
Fifteen years ago Disney were at the top (again) this time with the help of Pixar with A Bugs Life, while highest new film was at three, This Years Love.
In conclusion, Disney does well this time of year!

In a very slow and quiet week at the UK box office X-Factor rejects One Direction top the box office in a behind the stage documentary.
