UK Box Office Charts Weekend 6th May 2015: Captain America stays put, Bad Neighbours 2 highest new film

Bad Neighbours 2
Last week Captain America kick started the summer box office in the UK, and this weekend the sun actually showed its face making people forget about the cinema for the weekend.

With the sun shining the box office saw a massive drop in taking and Captain America: Civil War war a 60%+ drop in taking to £4.06 million.

This brings the films total takings to £27.3 million on its second weekend of release, although this is still better than the previous 2 film at the same point in their release.

Highest new film of the week is Bad Neighbours 2 at number 3 which debuts with £1.69 million.

With the sun out this is way lower than the original 2014 film which scored an £8 million plus opening.

Also new this week are Florence Foster Jenkins at number 4, Robinson Crusoe at number 5 and 24 at number 10.
