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.

Sing is an animated feature from the same stable as Despicable Me and features the voice talent from the likes of Matthew McConaughey and Reece Witherspoon.

The film makes its debut with a rather spectacular £10.4 million debut weekend which makes it the 66 top opening of all time.

Sing replaces La La Land which falls to number 3 this week with a £3.1 million 3rd weekend and a £20.9 million total UK gross.

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.

Also new this week is Hacksaw Ridge from director Mel Gibson at number 5 with £1.4 million and Rahm at number 7 with £521,000.

Highest total grossing film on the UK box office this week is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story which after 7 weeks has grossed £65.2 million while the longest running film is Trolls with 13 weeks.

Historical charts.

A year ago
The Revenant stayed at the top for a third weekend while Dirty Grandpa was the top new film at number 2.

Five years ago
War Horse made it 3 weeks at the top as well while the top new film was The Descendants which entered at number 2.

Ten years ago
Staying at the top for a second weekend way Rocky Balboa while the top new film entered at number 2, Leonardo Di Caprio in Blood Diamond.

Fifteen years ago
Tom Cruise was at the top with Vanilla Sky which made its debut this week while The Lord of The Rings: The Fellowship of The Ring fell to number 2 on its 6th week of release.

Twenty years ago
Forgotten Peter Jackson classic The Frighteners made its debut at the top of the Uk box office knocking 101 Dalmatians down to number 2 on its 7th week.

Twenty five years ago JFK was the top new film on the UK box office making its debut at number 1, it knocked Freddys Dead The Final Nightmare down to number 2 after a week at the top.

We've looked at the films to be released in 2017 and found it a tough year to narrow down to 10 films, hence there are many potentially excellent films missed off this list.

After much debate and arguing, and some falling out and fist fighting, here is our list of films the 25thFrame staff are hoping will be the best of the bunch in 2017.

Blade Runner 2049
Its 35 years later, 35 years where a sequel has been promised many time, but here we are, the trailer released only a few weeks ago was a tantalising sample of what is to come.

No Ridley Scott this time but director Denis Villeneuve looks like he can deliver the good, and with Harrison Ford back and Ryan Gosling starring we could be in for a treat.

Star Wars Episode VIII
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story delivered but didn't wow but the follow up to 2015's Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens should deliver in spades and its possibly our most anticipated film of the year, and we have to wait until December!

Rian Johnson has directed this instalment which is no bad thing, and as with all Star Wars films the ensemble cast all return, with the recent passing of Carrie Fisher it will be a sad moment if they complete the story arc of Princess Leah, but one which is necessary.

T2 Trainspotting
20 years after Trainspotting the guys are back for another dose of hard hitting, drug taking antics that will have us transfixed again.

Danny Boyle returns to direct with original stars Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle and Ewen Bremner all returning.

Ghost In The Shell
Scarlett Johansson controversially stars in this live action version of the acclaimed manga animation, but judging from the trailer they have hit the right note.

Rupert Sanders directs what promises to be one hell of a ride in the special effects heavy take that potentially no one will understand.

War For The Planet of The Apes
The third in the excellent prequel films which tells the story of how earth became The Planet of The Apes.

Special effects and motion capture are now at a point where we can truly believe that these apes have personalities and intelligence.

Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2
Just from the trailer alone you know you want to see this and Baby Groot will be the highlight of the cinema year, and the film actually looks really good.

James Gunn returns to direct Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper in this Marvel franchise film.

Alien Covenant
Sequel to Prometheus and prequel to Alien, directed by Ridley Scott, not too much riding on this then.

Prometheus was Alien enough to be part of the series but individual enough to be a film in its own right, looking at the fist trailer for Alien Covenant this could bridge the gap really well, we hope so.

Fifty Shades Darker
The original film delivered far more than the source material dictated, and it was actually a good film, worryingly this time Sam Taylor-Johnson is not returning to direct.

James Foley is directing this instalment but Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan are returning so the chemistry should still be there in this much darker tale.

The Mummy
A reboot of the 1999 franchise which spawned 3 movies, but got worse with each film, this time Tom Cruise stars and the first trailer looks like we could have a winner on our hands.

Pitch Perfect 3
Our guilty pleasure, the first film was one of the highlights of 2012 and although not nearly as good part 2 was still a lot of fun, time will tell if the idea is getting a little thin now.

T2 Trainspotting get its first poster, compliments the originals poster perfectly.

T2 Trainspotting 2 first trailer- gritty, real, modern, just like the original.

T2: Trainspotting 2 first teaser trailer.

King Fu Panda 3 stays on top of the UK box office for a second week as not much of a challenge enters the market in preparation for an explosion this coming weekend. Panda 3 only needed £1.7 over the weekend in order to stay on top, although the threequel is behind the other 2 in the series at this point.

After 10 days of play the film has a total gross of just over £7 million, the easter holidays are next week so it could hold up well again, although Zootopia will bring major competition.

Highest new film of the week enters at number 2, 10 Clover Field Lane is an odd successor to Cloverfield, but not a sequel.

£1.6 million for the weekend is not a bad entry although opened to £3 million+, this will struggle to meet even that.

Also new this week is: The boy at number 5, High-Rise at number 6 and Kapoor and Sons at number 10.

Highest total grossing film of the week is Deadpool at number 7 with £36 million over a 6 week run.

Twenty five years ago
The Godfather Part III remained at the top of the box office while Awakenings was the top new film making its debut at number 2.

Stopping London Has Fallen in its tracks after only one week at the top King Fu Panda 3 flies in with a high kick that no one could stop.

Taking a reasonable £4.7 million from the weekend this is the lowest debuting film for the series to date.

Kung Fu Panda 2 and the original broth managed to gross in the region of £6 million on their debuts.

With Disney's Zootopia just round the corner and getting great reviews Kung Fu Panda 3 could well struggle to bring in decent numbers.

Falling from the top spot to number 3 after its debut at the top is London Has Fallen, a second week gross of £1.8 million brings its total to £6.4 million after 10 days.

Highest total grossing movie on the box offie this week is Deadpool which after 5 weeks has taken £35.7 million.

Twenty five years ago

Ending the 3 week run of Deadpool this week is London Has Fallen which takes over on its debut weekend of release.

The sequel to the 2013 film about the White House takes over at the top with a debut weekend gross of £3.2 million.

It could be the location of course but London debuts with a £1 million gross higher than the original film, plenty of competition down the line to see this disappear quite quickly.

Deadpool falls to number 2 this week, the superhero film is still doing good numbers at the box office and this week does £1.5 million to brings its total to £34.1 million.

Deadpool is also the highest total grossing film on the box office this week.

Also new this week is Hail, Caesar! from The Coen Brother at number 3, The Other Side of The Door at number 9 and The Choice at number 10.
