UK box office top ten and analysis for the weekend of Friday 7th - Sunday 9th March 2014....

After three weeks atop the UK box office, The Lego Movie has fallen to second place, with the sword and sandals prequel/sequel 300: Rise of an Empire seizing its glory and claiming top spot with an opening weekend of £2,761,612. While that was enough for first place, its debut is down considerably from Zack Snyder's original, which pulled in £4.75 million back in 2006.

Joining 300: Rise of an Empire in the top ten were a further two newcomers, with Wes Anderson's latest star-studded offering The Grand Budapest Hotel pulling in £1,532,239 and giving the director his best ever UK debut in third place, while CG-animation Escape from Planet Earth opened down in seventh with £395,392. 

Number one this time last year: Oz the Great and Powerful
