Interstellar has achieved something it couldn’t in North America – it opened number one in the UK box office on its opening weekend. With £5.4m the film took almost as much money as the rest of the top ten combined. Mr Turner, the biopic of British painter J. M. W. Turner, found itself in second place after opening in more cinemas in its second week of release with £1m.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or TURD fell back to Earth and into third place with just £0.73m. The bomb of the week was Say When which was called Laggies when it opened in North America. It opened in a relatively small number of screens and only managed £0.09m. Oh dear, better luck Kiera with The Imitation Game.
