Mrs Brown’s Boys spends second weekend atop UK box office

Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie has topped the UK box office for the second weekend running.

Brendan O’Carroll’s big-screen spin on his hit BBC sitcom earned £2.1 million to secure first place ahead of The Fault in Our Stars. The film has now grossed more than £9.2 million from UK and Ireland cinemas after opening on June 27.

Transformers: Age of Extinction pulled in £4.7 million over the weekend after bowing on July 5, but isn’t eligible for this week’s chart as this is drawn from Friday to Sunday totals.

Michael Bay’s sequel is a certainty to take the number one slot next week thanks to its nine-day opening run.

Elsewhere in this week’s chart, Melissa McCarthy’s comedy Tammy is the highest new release, charting at number five with £471,429. The total falls short of matching the comedy star’s two most recent films from 2013, The Heat (£2.5 million) and Identity Thief (£1.3 million).

1. (1) Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie – £2,188,761
2. (2) The Fault in Our Stars – £961,640
3. (3) 22 Jump Street – £663,228
