The Oscar contender was unable to makes its debut at the top of the UK box office last weekend but after a tight fought battle manages to knock Venom off the top spot.
The films weekend gross is £3.08 million which takes the films total gross to £9.6 million
The Marvel film was not quite strong enough to hold on to the top spot for a second weekend as it falls to number 2 this week with £3 million.
This brings the Tom Hardy starring films total UK gross after 2 weekends of release to £13.7 million.
Its worth noting that across the week Monday - Sunday Venom is the top film with just £5.7 million compared to £5.5 million.
The British comedy starring Rowan Atkinson stays at 3 this week with a weekend gross of £2.9 million, this brings the films total gross after 2 weeks to £8.3 million.
It was in all a very tight fought battle at the box office for the top 3 places with less than £200,00 between the 3 movies.
Highest new entry of the week is First Man, set around the American space race to put the first man on the moon starring Ryan Gosling at Neil Armstring.
The film makes its debut with £2.4 million in the UK putting it this week at number 4, with Oscar buzz already in full swing for the film we could see this have a lengthy run.
Finally in the top 5 is a new animated family film from Warner Bros. which makes its debut taking £2.3 million over the weekend.
Worth noting is that the top five films in the UK all take over £2 million this weekend as the bad weather sets in after a very good summer and people look for indoor things to do.
Also interesting this week is that positions 4 down to 8 are all new entries, and the weeks only new entries
The Disney Pixar film has now been arounf for 14 weeks and has taken an incredible £55.9 million.
