Although the anticipation for the new Disney film Moana is quite high its not enough to knock off the three time champion Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Fantastic Beast stays put at the top of the Uk box office for its third straight week with an amazing weekend gross of £4.4 million, this brings the films total gross to £37.8 million.

There should be one more weekend at the top for Beast before the Galaxy Far Far Away comes blasting in, but that should be enough to cement the film as one of the years top films.

The film still has a way to go before beating the lowest grossing Potter film which was 2004's Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban which made £45.6 million.

Highest new film of the week then come in at 2, Moana from Disney makes £2.2 million on its UK debut.

Compared to Frozen from Disney which came out at the same time of year in 2013 this is half its debut gross of £4.7 million hence we probably wont see this scaling those heights.

Also new this week is Sully at number 3 with £1.7 million, Pitbull. Niebezpieczne Kobiety at number 5 with £0.4 million, The Edge of Seventeen at 9 with £0.27 million and Bleed For This at number 10 with £0.25 million.

Highest total grossing movie this week is Fantastic beasts and longest run on the box office is Trolls which has been around now for 7 weeks.

The Wizarding World has moved on from Harry Potter and a new era is here with Fantastic beasts and Where To Find Them, which this weeks predictably hits the top in America.

The film may not have hits the heights that were expected as the film makes its debut with with $75 million dollars (£60 million) but still is a fantastic debut.

This debut is no where near as big as any of the Harry Potter film, but to many that series of films defined the Wizarding World, but this new series has had better reviews so may last longer, Potter films tended to be front loaded.

Still doing well is last weeks top film, Doctor Strange, which only falls into second place this week with $17.6 million and a total gross of $181.5 million, this also makes it the highest total grossing film on the US box office.

Also new this week in America are The Edge of Seventeen at number 7 with $4 million and Bleed for This at number 8 with $2.3 million.

A second weekend of release brings in £6.2 million for Bridge Jones and with a very healthy weekly gross of nearly £13 million the films total gross is now £21 million.

This just nudges the film past the previous film in the series, Bridget Jones The Edge of Reason and its well ahead of the film film.

Highest new film of the week was no challenge for Jones as it lands at 2, The Magnificent Seven takes £2.1 million on its debut weekend.

For star Denzel Washington this is pretty much an average opening for his film and likewise for director Antoine Fuqua.

Longest running film on the top 15 this week is The BFG which is 10 week old now and highest total grossing movie is Finding Dory which now sits at over £41 million.
