War For The Planet of The Apes which stars Woody Harrelson and Any Serkis hits the top with a weekend gross of £7.1 million, a very good gross for a critically praised film.
The trilogy of films has been constant on its debut and this does better than Rise but not quite at good as Dawn's £8 million debut.
With this in mind I'd expect this to end its run in the £30 million region.
Spider-Man Homecoming falls to number 3 this week leapfrogging over Despicable Me 3 by the tightest of margins with a £3.7 million weekend.
This brings the films total gross to £16 million after 10 days of release and is looking set to match the first Spider-Man film from 2002.
Despicable Me at number 2 took £3.8 million and has now grossed £26 million from 3 weekends of release.
For the Monday - Sunday week the top film would have been Spider-Man with a £7.4 million weekly gross with Apes second and Despicable Me 3 third.
For the third weekend running The Boss Baby is the longest running film with 15 weeks and the highest grossing with £28 million.

This brings the films total global gross to $469 million and the film is set to go over half a billion this week, a billion could be a stretch though.

This is the series finale and despite not taking as much as the previous film this is still on track to be another winner for the much loved series.
