Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker makes its UK box office debut at the top of the chart while Cats makes its debut at number 2 despite being panned by critics and movie goers alike.
After 44 years the series of movies that started with Star Wars in 1977 comes to an end, and as with all the other movies in the saga the new films makes its debut at the top, this time with a gross of £14.4 Million.
There is an element of disappointment here as Star Wars: The Last Jedi took £28 Million on its debut and Star Wars: The Force Awakens £34 Million.
This could be because the film has not had good reviews from many critics or it could be because the fans have become a little tired of Star Wars films, this is the 5th movie since Disney bought Lucasfilms.
When George Lucas was making Star Wars movies he released each movie 2 - 3 years apart and each movie felt like an event and the fans were hungry for more, Disney have had a far more agressive release schedule and the sequel trilogy has only taken 4 years to complete.
Unlike the Marvel movies it would seem the Star Wars fans need far longer between movies, saying that this is a good film to finish of the saga and it could well have a long run and make its money in the new year.
The writing was on the wall for this movie after the criticism the first trailer got, and hence the movie makes its debut at number 2 but with a relatively low £3.2 Million.
The sequel movie starring Karen Gillan and Dwayne Johnson falls to number 3 this week, after making its debut at the top last week, with £2.9 Million.
This gives the movie a 2 week total of £14.7 Million which is a couple of million lower than its predecessor.
Disney's sequel movie drops to number 4 this weekend with a gross of £2.2 Million.
This gives the film a total gross of £41.7 Million after 5 weeks of release which is over £10 Million higher that its predecessor.
The festive movie has proved to be a bigger films in the UK than many other parts of the world and while it falls to number 5 this weekend with £803,948 it has still taken a quite respectable £16.9 Million over 6 weeks.
The mega smash hit DC superhero villain movie climbs back onto the box office this weekend spending its 11th in total and has now taken £57.9 Million.
