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.

This weeks US box office has The Equalizer topping on it's debut week of release and has Denzel Washington continue his run of box office hits.

Based on the 80's TV show of the same name, the Antoine Fuqua directed film tops the box office on it's debut weekend of release with a gross of $35 million.

Falling to number two this week is The Maze Runner which on it;s second week of release takes $17.5 million takings it's total gross after 10 days to $58 million.

Also new on the US box office this week is The Boxtrolls which enters at 3 with a gross of $17.2 million.

New films out this week are Denzel Washington in The Equalizer doing battle with Julianne Moore in Map to the Stars.

Having done the media rounds during the week the Antoine Fuqua directed The Equalizer will no doubt hit the top spot over the weekend. The film stars a popular Hollywood figure and has the built in audience of the original 80's TV show.

Map to the Stars is set to make a smaller splash this week, but given the female cast and the male dominated Equalizer this could easily get a top 5 entry, Pride is a challenge but on it's way out already.

The Boxtrolls is bound to loose it's place at the top this weekend and Liam Neesons A Walk Among the Tombstones will most likely stay in the runner up spot behind Mr Washington.

Check back next week for a breakdown of the weekend chart.
