Ending the 3 week run of Deadpool this week is London Has Fallen which takes over on its debut weekend of release.

The sequel to the 2013 film about the White House takes over at the top with a debut weekend gross of £3.2 million.

It could be the location of course but London debuts with a £1 million gross higher than the original film, plenty of competition down the line to see this disappear quite quickly.

Deadpool falls to number 2 this week, the superhero film is still doing good numbers at the box office and this week does £1.5 million to brings its total to £34.1 million.

Deadpool is also the highest total grossing film on the box office this week.

Also new this week is Hail, Caesar! from The Coen Brother at number 3, The Other Side of The Door at number 9 and The Choice at number 10.

Furious 7 is still the second film with a world gross of $24 million for the week and with a world total of $1.4 billion to looks set to overtake the original Avengers Assemble film as the third highest of all time.

The rest of the top 5 is filled out with Hot Pursuit at 3, Chappie at 4 and Home at 5.

Highest new film is Pitch Perfect 2 which had a early release in 2 territories and makes number 6 with $8.8 million putting it in good shape when it has a full release this week.
