Starring Jack Black the film was released at the UK cinema on 5th February 2016 where it entered the UK box office at number 1.
The following week the film fell to number 5 and had a relatively short 6 week stay on the UK box office before disappearing.
In that time though the film did manage to gross a fairly reasonable £8.5 million although this is quite low for a Jack Black film for which King Kong is his highest grossing movie.
Also for director Rob Letterman it is his lowest grossing movie to date.
The rest of the top 3 reads like: Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie is new at number 2 and Ride Along 2 is new at number 3.
Last weeks top film Spotlight falls right down to number 8 this week.
Soccer documentary Bobby is also new this week at number 12.
The seventh Star Wars film has not taken just about every honour the box office can give, except for highest grossing film across the globe, which it will probably leave where it is.
The figure for The Force Awakens this week are, £6 million for the weekend, £11 million for the week and £108 million total gross, it is of course the highest total grossing film on the chart.
Highest new film of the week is the 8th Quentin Tarantino film (have directors ever promoted film before by how many they have made!) The Hateful Eight which enters the chart at number 2.
The film takes £2.7 million for the weekend, £4 million behind The Force Awakens showing how popular that film still is.
The are no other new films on the box office top 10 this week.

First of all with the dust settling on Star Wars tis time to reflect on its debut, a massive first day and first weekend takes it to the top of the UK box office with £34 million, not the highest, that still is with Spectre but that had a 7 day opening as opposed to this 4 day opening.
The Force Awakens did have a better Friday - Sunday opening though, although its not like for like as these event films are generally front loaded.
The Force Awakens should go on to challenge Skyfall as the top film ever in the UK and could still become the highest grossing film of 2015 should it continue on current track.
Coming in new at 2 is Sisters, good reviews have increased the popularity of the film and the debut of £1.2 million is non too shabby considering it came up against such a massive tour de force.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 falls from number 1 after 4 week in that position to number 5 with £0.5 million and a total UK gross of £26.6 million.
Highest total grossing film on the box office this week is Spectre, at number 6 this week, with £92.7 million, it will not overtake Skyfall as the top film in the UK now.

The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies stayed at the top of the box office for another week with Night At The Museum Secret of The Tomb the highest new film at 3.
Five years ago
TRON Legacy debuted on the chart at number 1 knocking The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of The Dawn Treader down to number 2 after a single week.
Ten years ago
King Kong was the top new film making its debut at the top while The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe fell to number 2.
Supported by a cast of many British actors including the likes of Billy Connelly, Catherine Tate and James Cordon, the giant movie takes in an excellent £7,028,747 over the New Year period, no doubt helped by the mega press that Jack Black and other members of the cast have done on British TV.
Black has had a mixed bag of success in the UK with his last film, Year One, bombing with £2,776,236, but then he's had hits like King Kong which took £26,080,026 in the UK, so Gulliver's Travels will rank among his higher grossing movies.
Falling to second this week is The Little Fockers with £2,614,802 bringing it to £11,159,635 over a ten day period.
New at 3 is Jake Gyllenhaal in a film directed by Edward Zwick, Love and Other Drugs takes £1,606,253 over the weekend.
New at 4 Peter Weir directs Colin Farrell and Jim Sturgess in The Way Back to the tune of £1,327,650 and falling And finally in the top 5 falling is The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of The Dawn Treader which takes £1,207,264 which brings it total gross now to £11,263,418 which is the lowest of all the Narnia films. This week the top 7 films all took over a million pound each in box office takings, very good compared to last week when only the top film took over a million, and better than last year when only the top 4 took over a million.
Jackson has become the darling of Tinsel Town since the Lord of the Rings trilogy and he's working with the best of the best in Hollywood at the moment. Let's forget about King Kong and say that He hasn't yet set a foot wrong in cinema and judging from this trailer it looks like this trend is about to continue.
Based on the 2002 novel by Alice Sebold the story centres around a young girl who once murdered watches her family and friends from heaven. The trailer looks great and let's hope this December the film lives up to the promise.
