Audiences across the UK can't get enough of Belle and her beast as the Disney live action films scores a fantastic second weekend, Power rangers is the top new film at number 2.

A second weekend gross of £12.3 million for Beauty and The Beast is something most films would be happy to have as their debut weekend gross and would be in the top 100 highest grossers.

This brings the films total gross over 10 days to nearly £40 million and makes it the top grossing film of the year so far, overtaking La La Land.

With this type of momentum there is a chance it could end up being the top film of the year, although there are some big hitters coming later and a massive film at the tend of the year.

Power Rangers make their debut at number 2 this week in their revamped, re-booted, big budget incarnation to the tune of £1.5 million.

There was one other Power Rangers movie, back in 1995, based on the TV show it had the full title of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers The Movie and debuted in the UK to the tune of £1.3 million.

If we take inflation into account the 1995 film did far better and would today have debuted to the tune of £3.2 million.

Worth noting is that if the chart were counted for the whole week rather than just Friday - Sunday Power Rangers would have been at number 5 this week.

Also new this week is The Lost City of Z debuting at 7 with £0.28 million and CHiPs at number 8 with £0.2 million.

Longest running film this week is The Lego Batman Movie which has been around now for 7 weeks and the top grossing movie, after just 10 days is Beauty and The Beast.
