Alan Partridge in the studio Box Office

UK Box Office: ‘Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa’ scores number 1 in chart


Storming the UK box office chart this week at number one is British comedy Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa. 

The Alan Partridge hit debut has prevented newcomer Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters from landing the top spot and sitting at number two instead. Grown-Ups 2 has entered the charts at number three this week while The Conjuring secures fourth place.

Marking the fifth spot this week in the film charts is Johnny Depp’s The Lone Ranger and Monsters University follows behind at number six. Last week’s number one The Smurfs 2 has dropped down to number seven as well as The Heat which has swooped to number eight.

The Wolverine lands at number nine this week while newcomer Bollywood release Chennai Express enters at number ten.
