New at UK cinemas this week there are four new releases, although only one of them is destined to do big business and take the majority share of the box office gross.
X-Men Days of Future Past, which sees the merging of both eras of the X-Men series in one film, is set to take over at the top from Godzilla.
The massively hyped film has a huge following across the globe and is set for a big world wide release. The strong British cash including Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen will help it no so expect a UK debut of £10 million plus.
The previous films for the X-Men, First Class (2011) and The Last Stand (2006) grossed £5 million and £7 million respectively.
Blended is the latest film from Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore and is their first pairing in 10 years. The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates were both big films so expect this to get into the top 3 and gross somewhere in the £2 million mark.
Postman Pat makes it to the big screen this week in Postman Pat The Movie, a timely release over the UK half term holiday could see this gross higher than expected, a top 5 hit for sure?
Also out this weekend is
Finding Gigolo - the latest film starring and directed by John Turturro.
Nothing could stop the Man of Steel from taking the top of the UK box office this week as Zack Snyers new take on Superman enters at the top.
We all saw it coming, like a speeding bullet perhaps, the re-imagined Superman franchise achieved big numbers last weekend. During it's opening weekend it took £11.2 million in Britain making it the 36 best opening weekend ever in the UK. After Earth falls into second place, not bad considering the bad reviews it's had.
Last year Prometheus was still at the top of the UK box office and during a quiet week for new releases Rocks of Ages was the highest new film at 4.
Five years go Sex and the City got knocked from the top spot into 2nd as The Incredible Hulk took over during it's opening weekend.
Ten years ago it was still all about The Matrix Reloaded riding the top spot while the highest new film was Identity at 3.
Fifteen years ago it was still The Wedding Singer at the top, and with almost no new films out that week the highest new film was Stiff Upper Lips right down at 10.
After a bad reception and opening weekend in America the UK shows more love for Will Smith and son by taking After Earth to the top.
Directed by M. Night Shyamalan, once the talk of Hollywood, After Earth stars the two Smith boys in a film set 1000 years from now in a time when there are no people left on earth. A quiet week for new releases mean that a £2.2 million gross saw off last weeks top film, Hangover Part III which slips to second place.
Last year Prometheus was still at the top of the box office while horror film The Pact was the highest new film at 4 with just £900,000 for the weekend.
Five years ago Sex and the City was still keeping the top spot warm which slapstick comedy Superhero The Movie was the highest new film at 3 with £800,000. Ten year ago The Matrix Reloaded was still at the top as Anger Management crept into number 2 with £1.7 million.
Fifteen years ago Adam Sandler was there again hitting the top spot with The Wedding Singer which debuted at the top with £1 million.
