Following on from its stablemate The Lego Movie from 3 years ago The Lego Batman Movie enters the UK box office at the top beating out Fifty Shades Darker in the process.

The Lego Movie opened this same weekend in 2014 to just over £8 million and The Lego Batman Movie has almost done exactly the same with opening to just under £8 million.

The Lego Movie went on to be the top grossing movie of 2014 with £37 million, time will tell with The Lego Batman Movie, this are looking good but we have a number of big franchise movies coming this year which could get in its way.

Fifty Shades of Grey opened in 2015 to £13.5 million over a valentines weekend, this week Fifty Shades Darker opens to £7 million at number 2, but not a valentines weekend, next week will be a tell time for the movie.

Sing falls down to number 3 this week with £2.3 million which brings the films total gross in the UK to £18 million.

Highest total grossing movie on the box office this week is La La Land which has now taken £26.4 million while the longest running film is Trolls which re-enters the chart and spends its 14th week in total.

A fairly static top end of the box office charts leaves Sing at the top for a second consecutive weekend while the top new film os Rings right down at 7.

A second weekend gross of £3.8 million is enough to keep the animated feature at the top ahead of T2 Trainspotting, it brings the films total UK gross to £15.2 million.

T2 stays put at number 2 with £2.9 million but its worth noting that across the whole week it was the top film with £5.4 million compared to Sing’s £4.8 million.

Top new film of the week is Rings, a reboot of 2003s The Ring. Rings weekend gross is £812,267 which is way lower than The Rings opening of £2.2 million.

Making its debut on the UK box office this week is Sing which lands at the top knocking off La La Land, and in a surprise move keeps of T2 Trainspotting.

Missing out on the top spot is the highly anticipated T2 Trainspotting which lands at number 2, the film is an 18 rating so the audience compared to Sing is limited, but £5.1 million is good and any other week would have easily seen the film enter at the top.
