The Vatican may not have wanted anyone to see it but a large number of people did anyway as The Devil Inside topped the weekend’s box office. The found footage exorcism horror grossed an impressive £2m, which is significantly more than the similarly themed Exorcism of Emily Rose (£1.3m) and The Last Exorcism (£1.1m). In second place was the brilliantly funny 21 Jump Street with £1.6m.
In third place, fractionally behind 21 Jump Street, was The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel with £1.5m. Easing just 14% from last weekend, this is the fourth £1m plus weekend in a row for the India set comedy and it now has a cume total of £13.9m. In fifth and sixth place were two more new entries, We Bought A Zoo and Contraband.
