A third week at the top for The Hunger Games: Mockingly Part 2 in the wake of little in the way of new releases in the UK.

The box office is on hold at the moment waiting for one of the biggest releases of the year which left room for Mockingly to make £2.2 million.

This brings the total UK gross for the last of The Hunger Games films to £23.3 million after 3 weeks of release.

Highest new film of the week is Christmas with the Coopers, an all American movie about family meeting up for the holiday season.

A very low debut gross of nearly £700,000 puts the film at number 5, little chance of this film having longevity at the box office though.

Highest total grossing film on the box office is Spectre which has to date grossed over £90 million and this week is at number 3.

It's good to see that the Americans still have a passion for that British favourite James Bond as the latest movie, Quantum of Slace, in the long running franchise tops the US box office.

Not only has it topped the US film chart but it did to quite convincingly taking in over $70 million dollars in its first weekend, and also it actually got slightly better reviews than it did her in the UK.

To be fair there wasn't a lot of competition for the Daniel Craig starring action film, the runner up film this week, last week's top film Madagascar Escape 2 Africa took less than half the Bond take. To check out this and the rest of the US top 10 check here.
