Starring Michael Fassbender as the time travelling assassin the film based on a video game debuts at the top with £5.2 million including previews.
As a star one one of the biggest movie franchises around this is by no means the highest debut gross for Fassbender, but it is good for a non franchise debut, for director Justin Kurzel it is his best grossing film to date.
Its unclear if Assassins Creed will continue to do well, it got bad reviews from the press and the audience for these films is usually front loaded so it could drop sharp in the coming weeks.
Falling from the top after 3 weeks is Rogue One although the film enjoyed a decent fourth week gross of £3.2 million which brings its total gross in the UK to £59.6.
The film wont reach the heights of The Force Awakens but this is still a great total gross, also worth a note is that the Monday - Sunday gross of £7.6 million would have put it at number 1.
Also making its debut this week is A Monster Calls at 3 with £2 million and Silence at number 4 with £1.5 million.
Rogue One is the highest total grossing film around at the moment and the longest running film this week is Storks at number 15 which has been around now for 10 weeks.

Film out in the UK on January 1st 2017.
We had high hopes but had few thrills, out side of the DC movie Suicide Squad Ghostbusters gave us a good laugh but didn't deliver as expected Finding Dory pulled in the audiences but left us flat.
The rest of the year has some highlights but there is caution as the 2 biggest films are both sequels outside of their parent film series.
Before we even get to them in the latter part of the year we have a number of promises, Captain Fantastic starring Viggo Mortensen looks promising and American hit Kubo and The Two String gives a refreshing animation outside Disney.
Of course we have British favourite Bridget Jones's Baby which is getting good reviews at the moment and a bit after that the recently announced Blair Witch remake/reboot/sequel.
Getting a lot of marketing hype is the remake/retelling of The Magnificent Seven and the looking promising, and a return to form for Tim Burton is Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children.
Tom Hanks returns to detective mode for a third time in Inferno, although I didn't like the previous 2 films and then another sequel emerges mid October with Tom Cruise in Jack Reacher Never Go Back.
Marvel return to their cinematic universe with a new hero in the shape of Doctor Strange and another sequel/reboot come in early November with Rings, the next in (surprise) The Ring series.
After the hotly anticipated Arrival starring Amy Adams arrives the season kicks up a gear with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the first move into the Wizarding World outside Harry Potter.
The film, penned by J. K. Rowling, is being hyped to death and not surprisingly, the 8 Potter films did fantastic business at the box office and this is directed by series expert David Yates whic just seems to get the ideas Rowling writes about.
Warner Bros. will be hoping this shows there is still life in the seemingly dormant series and please fans of the original and set up a new generation, 2 more film are already planned.
After that injection things go quiet with unwanted sequel Bad Santa 2 and Tom Hanks (again) in Scully the story of the pilot who landed a plane on the Hudson River.
Then to finish the year off another much lover series goes off piste with Rogue One A Star Wars Story, taking place just before the events of the original Star Wars.
The trailer have looked good and after the excellence of Star Wars: The Force Awakens expectation are massive.
This is a massive risk for Lucasfilms and Disney, and it will either boost the series to height never imagined or will do to the series what Episodes I - III did and nearly kill it, fortunately it has recovered!
To round the rear off we have Michael Fassbender trying to do what many other have failed to do and bring a video game series to the screen in Assassins Creed.
