With the slow box office of Blade Runner 2049 the UK chart sees a new number 1 in the shape of The Lego Ninjago Movie, but it was a battle for the top.

Its the third movie based on the lego franchise and each one has made its debut at the top, but The Lego Ninjago Movie has done so with the lowest opening.

With £3.6 million there is the feeling that the general public are starting to get used to seeing the Lego franchise on the big screen and are maybe waiting for home video before watching.

Regardless this is still a number one film and with a sequel to the original Lego Movie coming soon you can imagine that being a box office hit as well.

Blade Runner 2049 falls from the top to number 2 this week, but with a £3 million weekend it fought hard to stay on top.

The full week gross was £6.1 million so it easily was the top film of the week, the total gross currently sits at £12.1 million.

Also new this week is The Snowman at number 3 with a weekend gross of £1.3 million and Botoks is new at 5 with nearly £0.8 million.

The Ritual is new at number 7 with and the highly acclaimed movie Loving Vincent is new at number 9, Sally Potter just creeps into the top 10 at 10 as The Party makes its debut.

Despicable Me 3 has now been on the box office for 16 weeks and has a total gross of £47 million.

Historical charts

A year ago
The Girl on the Train stays at the top of the box office for a second weekend while Inferno starring Tom hanks and directed by Ron Howard is the top new film at 2.

Five years ago
Liam Neeson and Taken 2 hold onto the top spot for a second weekend while the top new film was Hotel Transylvania at number 2.

Ten years ago
Pixars Ratatouille was the top new film of the weekend at number 1 while The Heartbreak Kid fell from the top to number 3 after just 1 weekend.

Fifteen years ago
The last of the Hannibal Lecter films starring Anthony Hopkins made its debut at the top of the UK box office while Disney's Lilo and Stitch fell to number 2 after a week on top.

Twenty years ago
Disney's Hercules made its debut at the top of the box office knocking The Full Monty down to number 2 after 6 weeks at the top.

Twenty five years ago
The original animated version of Disney's Beauty and The Beast made its debut at the top while Patriot Games fell to number 3 after a couple of weeks at the top.

With the disappointing box office debut of Blade Runner 2049 last weekend maybe its not much of a surprise that its been knocked off the top this week, the film thats done that is Happy Death Day on its debut.

The teen horror film makes its debut with a fairly lacklustre $26.5 million but there is not a lot more on the market so the box office might go through another quiet time.

Blade Runner 2049 slips down to number 2 this week with a weekend gross of $15 million, more than a 50% drop from last weekend.

Despite the fantastic reviews the general public have simply not taken to the film and with a $60 million total gross after 2 weekend the film could struggle to get to $100 million.

Also new this week and entering at number 3 is The Foreigner with Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan which makes its debut with $12 million.

IT which this week is at number 4 is the longest running film with 6 weeks on the chart and the highest total grossing film with $314 million.

Its taken 35 years to produce a sequel to one of the greatest sci-fi movies of all time and Blade Runner 2049 does what its predecessor couldn't and tops the box office.

Its hard to draw comparisons when there is such a gap between two parts but Blade Runner was considered a flop on release and only later was considered a classic, although not setting the box office alight as expected the sequel does manage a £6 million debut.

The reviews and the anticipation should have perhaps demanded a £10 million plus opening, but perhaps the long running time and stylised cinematography put people off.

Falling to number 2 after 2 weeks on top is Kingsman The Golden Circle which still manages a very respectable £2.1 million.

This brings the films total to date to £19.4 million, this means the film has in 3 weeks outgrossed the originals 9 week gross of £16 million.

Also new this week is The Mountain Between Us at number 4 with £0.7 million and the event feature Nora from the Met Opera (Norma Met Opera 2017) at number 7.

For the first time in 8 weeks there is a new highest total grossing movie, although it is Despicable Me 3 which is also the longest running film with 15 weeks, it has grossed £47 million.

The UK classification board, BBFC, has give Blade Runner 2049 and 15 rating.

This was for strong violence, language, sexualised nudity.

The film in released in the UK on October 7th.

In a summer of superheroes, Apes and Pirates it was a was film which out grossed everything with few stars but a visionary director who is a master of storytelling.

Christopher Nolan has become one of the most prolific directors in modern cinema and he took the moving story of Dunkirk to the top over the summer to the tune of £53 million.

It was by far the top film of the summer season with the closest competitor at number 2 Spider-Man Homecoming which brought home just why of £30 million.

Next up is the highest grossing film ever from a female director in the shape of Wonder Woman which grossed £22 million while the apes rules at number 4 with War For The Planet of The Apes grossing £20 million.

IN recent years a new Pirates of the Caribbean film would have meant big money but Pirates of The Caribbean: Salazars Revenge came in at 5 with under £20 million, far less than previous entries.

Looking further down the top films of the summer in the UK Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 was the sixth top film while Alien: Covenant was the seventh and Baby Driver the eight.

Rounding out the top 10 is The Emoji Movie at nine and finally Cars 3 at number ten, another film which is suffering from series fatigue and has done far worse than the others in the series.

Looking forward to the holiday season ahead we can expect top film from IT to Kingsman The Golden Circle, Blade Runner 2049 to Thor: Ragnarok and Justice League to Star Wars: The LAst Jedi.

When directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller departed the Han Solo movie earlier this year it was a bit of a shock, not 'history' is repeating and today Lucasfilms have announced the departure of Colin Trevorrow from Episode IX.

See the announcement on starwars.com.

The film is very much is pre-production so nothing has been filmed yet which, unlike the Han Solo movie, is a blessing, saying that the Solo movie got big time Hollywood director Ron Howard in to finish the film off.

With that in mind who could come in to direct Episode IX?

How about Ron Howard? He's already in the fold, or even better Steven Spielberg, he's always said he'd like to do a Star Wars movie?

JJ Abrams must be in with a show after the fantastic job on The Last Jedi, or how about Guillermo del Toro to bring a dark twist to perhaps a darker movie, and talking of dar how about Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve.

Ridley Scott could do a good job and bring an interesting twist to the series and finally a man who has been in the Star Wars universe for many years how about giving Lawrence Kasdan a shot.

I am sure it wont be long before we hear who will take the Episode IX directors chair.

Blade Runner 2049 gets a new trailer - plenty of Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford but no more story revealed.

Good news is it looks like this well and truly retains the look and feel of the original despite not being directed by Ridley Scott.

Release date in the UK is October 16th.

Good news to end the week, Blade Runner 2049 get a new trailer on Monday, only the weekend to wait?

Blade Runner 2049 gets a teaser trailer before its October 2017 release.

Ridley Scott had ducked out of directing but it looks like new director Denis Villeneuve has a eye for the detail.

Check out the trailer.
