It's proving to be the runaway hit of moment as Fast and Furious 7 speeds ahead of the rest of the field as it produces another £5.4 million over the weekend.
This gives Furious 7 a total UK gross after 2 weekends of £26.2 million, the film is fast catching the years highest grossing movie, Fifty Shades of Grey, which has taken £34.6 million.
With little in the way of new releases next week Furious 7 could well stay at the top until the release of Avengers Age Of Ultron at the end of April.
Highest new film of the week is American teen comedy/drama The DUFF, new at 4 with £891,691, not a great start!
The other new films this week maybe underperformed and all entered at the lower end of the chart, John Wick at 6, Woman In Gold at 7 and Paul Blart Mall Cop 2 at 8.
A year ago
Captain America: The Winter Soldier was holding still at the top of the box office with The Quiet Ones the highest new film down at 5.
Five years ago
Clash of The Titans was still the top film in the UK while the highest new film was all the way down at 8 in the shape of Whip It.
Ten years ago
The Matthew McConaughey film Sahara was the highest new film and entered at the top of the box office knocking The Ring Two down to number 2 after a week on top.
Fifteen years ago
Julia Roberts starred in the Oscar winning Erin Brockovich which entered at the top of the box office knocking Lake Placid down to number 2.
13th June 2014
A very quiet week for releases on this Friday 13th, with only one new release of note that has a fairly niche market it should leave the field open for some old film shine.
The supernatural thriller Oculus starring former Doctor Who star Karen Gillan is the biggest new release of the week, opening on Friday 13th as a marketing mechanism.
A strong advertising campaign and the clear interest from Doctor Who fans who want to know what Gillan has been unto in the last year should see it appear at least top 3 with a 1 million plus opening.
22 Jump Street could hold on at the top, but it a male buddy movie and with the World Cup in Brazil having a big England match on Saturday night (that has a bigger male interest) Maleficent could well see itself go back to the top.
It could be the slowest weekend of the year for multiplexes as the forecast good weather and World Cup will have a major impact on box office takings.
Other new film this week are
The Hooligan Factory
3rd February 2010
As happens each year the night before the Oscar nominations are announced the Razzie nominations are announced which celebrated the worst in cinematic achievements through the year.
Leading the field this year is the Transformers sequel, Revenge of the Fallen, which lets face it was truly awful and in the field for worst film along with All About Steve, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Land of the Lost and Old Dogs should win quite comfortably.
As these awards are something which are not taken too seriously, even by the foundation, in the worst actor category we have all 3 Jonas brothers up for a single nomination, in the same category we have Will Ferrell, Steve Martin, Eddie Murphy (who has had his fare share of nominations) and John Travolta.
Worst actress nods go to Beyonce, Sandra Bullock, Myley Cyrus, Megan Fox and Sarah Jessica Parker, and guess which of these was in the Transformers movie that may just pip the rest at the post.
The categories are not in the usual fashion and there is a category for Worst Screen Couple for which the Jonas brothers feature again and Worst Remake, Rip-off or Sequel, which of course the Transformers film appears in.
As we celebrated the end of a decade last year there are also categories for picture, actress and actor that were the worst of the naughties.

21st January 2010
Today (Thursday 21st January) BAFTA, the British Film Association awards, has announced it's nominations for the awards ceremony taking place in London on 21st February.
The all important best film of the year award is a race between Avatar, An Education, The Hurt Locker, Precious and Up In The Air and An Education also appears in the nomination for best British film along with Fish Tank, In The loop, Moon and Nowhere Boy.
Like the Golden Globe Awards the BAFTA's are seen as a pre-curser to the Oscars and in the directing category I can see the list being very similar as James Cameron (Avatar), Neill Blomkamp (District 9), Lone Scherfig (An Education), Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker) and Quentin Tarantino (Inglourious Basterds) all get nods, it's good to see Neill Blomkamp in there.
The best actor and actress categories are similar to the expectation for the Oscars as well with Jeff bridges who just won the Golden Globe leading the field for the men with George Clooney, Colin Firth, Jeremy Renner and Any Sirkis all getting a mention. The actress category is led by Carey Mulligan along with Saoirse Ronan, Gabourey Sidibe and of course Meryl Streep.
We'll find out in a months time who walks away with the awards in a ceremony hosted by TV favourite Jonathan Ross.
For a full list of nomination check out the BAFTA website.
