Disney have done well in recent years with their live action versions of classic cartoons and this week the best of all animations gets the treatment and Beauty and The Beast opens to a massive debut.

Taking nearly £20 million on its first weekend of release it is the 8th top weekend in the UK of all time and is the highest opening outside of a franchise film.

It will be interesting to see if this is just that the animation is considered one of Disneys ultimate classics, or if the public are simply enjoying these live conversions.

Its hard comparing this to the 1992 original as its been 25 years but that film took £8.4 million on its opening, and took £20 million in total.

Adjusting for inflation the 1992's opening would be about £22 million with a total of about £52 million, potentially very similar to this live action remake.

Falling to number 2 this week is Kong: Skull Island, a £2.7 million second weekend brigs the films total to £11 million, the film is running just above its stablemate Godzilla.

Also new this week is American horror hit Get Out which lands at number 3 this week with a better than expected £2.1 million.

Longest running film on the UK box office this week is Lion starring Dev Patel which has now been around for 9 weeks while the highest total grossing movie is Sing which is still at 7 and has now grossed £28 million.

Historical charts

A year ago
Staying at the top was Kung Fu Panda 3 while to the top new film of the week was 10 Cloverfield Lane at number 2.

Five years ago
Horror film The Devil Inside was the top new film of the week making its debut at number 1 while John Carter fell from the top to number 4.

Ten years ago
Norbit stayed at the top for a second weekend while the top new film was Premonition which landed at number 2.

Fifteen years ago
Ocean's Eleven spent its fifth weekend at the top while the highest new film was Thir13en Ghosts which made its debut at number .

Twenty years ago
Oscar winning The English Patient was the top new film at number 1 while Jerry Maguire fell to number 2 after a week at the top.

Twenty five years ago
Cape Fear spent a second week at the top while Fried Green Tomatoes At The Whistle Stop Café was the top new film entering at number 2.

It was a claws out at this weekends box office as Kong Skull Island and Logan fought it out for the top spot and the new relese of Kong won the battle.

From the same production team that brought us Godzilla in 2014 Kong Skull Island is set in the same universe and is set to start a "monsters" universe similar to that of the Marvel and DC cinematic universes.

Kong opens similar to Godzilla with just over £6 million, but the film was far better received than Godzilla with the critics with a surprise amount of praise for the monster film.

Godzilla went on to gross £17 million in the UK and there is nothing to suggest this wont do similar if not better.

Logan falls into second place this week with £3.8 million after a single week at the top, this brings the films total gross to £16 million after 10 days of release.

This means that on its second weekend the film is already the best of the solo Wolverine movies and it still has plenty of milage left.

A couple of interesting things to note this week, if the chart were taken on a Monday - Sunday then Logan would have still been the top film.

Also Moulin Rouge which is on a Secret Cinema run at the moment and is number 13 on the weekend chart would have been number 4 with £2 million for the week.

There are no other new released in the top 10 this week but Elle makes a new entry at number 11 with £0.2 million and Dancer is new at 12 also with £0.2 million.

Longest run this week is Lion with 8 weeks on the chart and highest total grossing movie is Sing with £28 million.

Eddie Murphy starred, twice, in Norbit which entered at the top, it knockied Hot Fuzz down to number 2.

Fifteen years ago

Twenty years ago
One of Tom Cruises defining moment Jerry Maguire hit the charts at the top, it knocked Mars Attacks down to number 2

Twenty five years ago
Martin Scorsese scared us all with Cape Fear which hit the top of the box office on its debut, it knocked The Last Boy Scout down to number 2.

This weekend Jack Reacher gave it a good go but in the end her was not good enough to stop the Trolls from hitting the top on its debut weekend.

The new IP from Dreamworks hits the top with a weekend gross of £5.4 million which is about average for an animation from the studio, Kung Fu Panda 3, the last film from them took £4.7 million on its opening.

If things go as usual Trolls could get somewhere in the £10 million mark especially with a fairly decent debut.

The Girl on The Train falls from the top this week after a couple of weekends at the top, a £2 million weekend takes the film to £17.7 million after 3 weeks of release.

Also new this week is Jack Reacher Never Go Back which lans in the runner up spot with £2.6 million, this is in the ballpark, but lower, of the first film with took £3.5 million on its debut.

Longest running film of the week is The BFG which has been around now for 13 weeks and the highest total grossing movie is Bridget Jones's Baby now on £44.5 million.

Historical charts

A year ago
Hotel Transylvania 2 stayed at the top for a second week while top new film was Paranormal Activity The Ghost Dimension at number 3.

Five years ago
Halloween took Paranormal Activity 3 to the top of the box office on its debut while Johnny English Reborn fell to number 2 after 3 weeks.

Ten years ago
The Departed stayed at the top for a second week while highest debuting film was Barnyard at number 3.

Fifteen years ago
American Pie 2 stayed at the top while America's Sweethearts made its debut at number 2.

Twenty years ago
New at the top was the fantasy film Dragonheart while The Nutty Professor fell into the runner up spot after 2 weeks at the top.

Twenty five years ago
Making its debut at the top was City Slickers while Drop Dead Fred fell to number 3.

On the UK video charts the sequel movie London Has Fallen makes its debut at the top knocking off The Divergent Series Allegiant.

London Has Fallen how UK cinemas on 4th March 2016 as a sequel to Olympus Has Fallen from 2013, the film hit the top of the box office on its debut weekend.

A sizeable hit the film was on the box office for 5 weeks and then hung around cinemas for another 8 weeks after that.

A £10.9 million total gross in the UK isn't bad for a disaster movie of this kind, but hte film did perform far better in the UK than in other countries, possibly the setting being part of the reason.

After a debut at the top last week The Divergent Series Allegiant falls to number 3 this week with Kung Fu Panda 3 holding firm at number 2.

Other new film this week are The Witch at number 5 and High Rise at number 7, Norm of The North is new at 11 and The Trust debuts at number 12.
