Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles tops UK film charts


‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ returns to the top spot on the UK film charts for the third weekend since its release.

A week after the ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ was knocked down into second place by competitor Brad Pitt’s World War II drama ‘Fury’, the fictional film of the four teenage turtles has regained its top spot in the UK and Ireland film chart.

Starring Megan Fox and Will Arnet, it received £1.43 million over the weekend.

Pitt’s war movie, which topped the UK and Ireland box offices in its first week of release, taking in £2.7 million, dropped to third place only making £1.24 million in its second week of release, when the low-budget supernatural horror ‘Ouija’ climbed to second place with £1.37 million.

‘Nightcrawler’ and Mike Leigh’s latest film ‘Mr Turner’ were among the new entries in the top 10 coming in at number sixth and seventh respectively.
