A second weekend gross of £12.3 million for Beauty and The Beast is something most films would be happy to have as their debut weekend gross and would be in the top 100 highest grossers.
This brings the films total gross over 10 days to nearly £40 million and makes it the top grossing film of the year so far, overtaking La La Land.
With this type of momentum there is a chance it could end up being the top film of the year, although there are some big hitters coming later and a massive film at the tend of the year.
Power Rangers make their debut at number 2 this week in their revamped, re-booted, big budget incarnation to the tune of £1.5 million.
There was one other Power Rangers movie, back in 1995, based on the TV show it had the full title of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers The Movie and debuted in the UK to the tune of £1.3 million.
If we take inflation into account the 1995 film did far better and would today have debuted to the tune of £3.2 million.
Worth noting is that if the chart were counted for the whole week rather than just Friday - Sunday Power Rangers would have been at number 5 this week.
Also new this week is The Lost City of Z debuting at 7 with £0.28 million and CHiPs at number 8 with £0.2 million.
Longest running film this week is The Lego Batman Movie which has been around now for 7 weeks and the top grossing movie, after just 10 days is Beauty and The Beast.

Here is the full global top 10 film:
The 4-year gap since the last film, Quantum of Solace, looks to have made people more hungry for Bond than ever. Couple that with a great story, a title song from cart-topper Adele, Oscar-winning director Sam Mendes, not forgetting Daniel Craig, who gives one of the best performances ever as Bond, and you have a winning combination.
Released in the UK on 25th October it has taken Skyfall 5 weeks to become the top film. The previous top film, Avatar, took the crown from Titanic (which had held the honour for 10 years since 2008). Its release in 3D meant it had the advantage of the extra charge for 3D glasses. Bond takes the title with no such surcharge.
With average cinema ticket prices in the UK being around the £5.40 mark this amounts to about 17.4 million people seeing the film so far. Skyfall is currently topping the UK box office (as of 30th November 2012) and has plenty of momentum left. So much so that it could be the first film in the UK to gross £100 million in box office receipts. We should know by Christmas.
Worldwide, Skyfall is also doing well for itself. It has grossed $868,585,083 globally and is currently the 28th highest grossing film ever. The Americans' love for Bond film has undoubtedly contributed, with the 50th anniversary film taking $245,585,083 in the US alone.
The Inbetweeners Movie took just over £13 million from it's debit weekend (including Wednesday and Thursday previews) beating the likes of Bridget Jones and Wallace and Gromit and American blockbusters like Sex and the City. Very good for a little comedy from Channel 4.
Time will tell if the momentum will continue during its run at the box office and it still needs to go world wide, the US audience may not get the very British humour and crudeness of the central characters.
A great first weekend for the boys and beating James Bond and Indiana Jones in a movie together will be something to tell the grandchildren about.
Just to mention the Oscars, The Kings Speech has got more Nomination than any other film this year, 12 in Total, and it gets nods in all major categories except for Best Actress, it's up for Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Screenplay to name just half of it's nominated categories.
Onto this weeks chart and the film took a very impressive £ 4,226,074 in it's 3rd week, which brings it's total to £ 18,312,482. It will be interesting to see if the award momentum can keep it at number one.
Top new release of the week is the Oscar nominated Black Swan starring Natalie Portman. The ballet drama which also stars Winona Ryder took £2,762,429 during it's first weekend.
Slipping to third this week is The Green Hornet with £1,187,652 and a total gross after 2 weeks of £ 3,830,737.
New at 4 is The Dilemma with £1,102,798, a disappointing debut for a Ron Howard film starring Vince Vaughn, and making a slow fall down is Gulliver's Travels at 5 with £992,382 making it's total £13,728,081.
This weeks chart is again lower than this time last year where Avatar and Sherlock Holmes were still pulling in the audience with Alvin and the Chipmunks 2, Up in the Air and It's Complicated also doing very good business.
