This weekends box office chart has Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker remaining at the top while The Gentlemen makes its UK debut at number 3.
Remaining at the top of the box office this weekend for a third straight weekend is the final Star Wars film directed JJ Abrams which takes £4.3 Million.
This puts the films 3 week total gross at £51.3 Million which is £17 Million behind that of Star Wars: The Last Jedi at the same stage in its box office run.
Star Wars fatigue has clearly set in for many fans, and despite the fact the film has been mostly better received than the previous film its numbers are simply not as good.
There is a small glimmer of hope that maybe the Christmas period slowed down the cinema going audience but I suspect this will end up the lowest grossing of the sequel trilogy.
The Dwayne Johnson and Jack Black starring sequel sits at number 2 this weekend with £3 Million on its 4th weekend of release.
This puts the movies total gross at £28.4 Million which is within a whisker of Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle when it was at the 4 week mark.
Director Guy Ritchie hits the box office again in less than 12 months with a London gangster basted movie which makes its debut with £3 Million.
Ritchies last movie was the Disney remake of Aladdin which made its debut with £7 Million, there was no way this was going to equal that but in comparison one of his early films with a similar genre style, Snatch from 2000, had a debut in the same ball park.
Greta Gerwig's telling of the classic novel falls to number 4 this weekend with £2.6 Million for a 2 week total gross of £9 Million.
Director Taika Waititi brings us his latest film which makes its debut at number 5 with £2.4 Million.
The Aardman animated movie as been on the box office for a 12 week run and is the longest on this weeks box office, it has taken £7 Million on that time.

Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker makes its UK box office debut at the top of the chart while Cats makes its debut at number 2 despite being panned by critics and movie goers alike.
After 44 years the series of movies that started with Star Wars in 1977 comes to an end, and as with all the other movies in the saga the new films makes its debut at the top, this time with a gross of £14.4 Million.
There is an element of disappointment here as Star Wars: The Last Jedi took £28 Million on its debut and Star Wars: The Force Awakens £34 Million.
This could be because the film has not had good reviews from many critics or it could be because the fans have become a little tired of Star Wars films, this is the 5th movie since Disney bought Lucasfilms.
When George Lucas was making Star Wars movies he released each movie 2 - 3 years apart and each movie felt like an event and the fans were hungry for more, Disney have had a far more agressive release schedule and the sequel trilogy has only taken 4 years to complete.
Unlike the Marvel movies it would seem the Star Wars fans need far longer between movies, saying that this is a good film to finish of the saga and it could well have a long run and make its money in the new year.
The writing was on the wall for this movie after the criticism the first trailer got, and hence the movie makes its debut at number 2 but with a relatively low £3.2 Million.
The sequel movie starring Karen Gillan and Dwayne Johnson falls to number 3 this week, after making its debut at the top last week, with £2.9 Million.

With the release of a new Star Wars film we get a new number 1 film, but The Rise Of Skywalker disappoints a bit on its debut weekend while Cats is a major disappointment at 4.
The last of the sequel trilogy and the last of the Skywalker saga for arguably the best series of films ever created makes its way to the top of the US box office with ease, but its $175.5 Million debut of far lower than expected.
The film is the 12th highest opening film ever in the US, but its lower than Star Wars: The Last Jedi which has a bad reception from fans and far lower than Star Wars: The Force Awakens which is loved by fans.
The road ahead could be good for the movie though as films released around Christmas tend to have good legs, but critical reviews and fans alike have given the movie a mixed reception, in truth are we fed up with Star Wars movies?
