10th January 2017

The debut of video game adaptation Assasins Creed produces the first new number one film of 2017 knocking off Rogue One: A Star Wars Story after 3 weeks at the top.

Starring Michael Fassbender as the time travelling assassin the film based on a video game debuts at the top with £5.2 million including previews.

As a star one one of the biggest movie franchises around this is by no means the highest debut gross for Fassbender, but it is good for a non franchise debut, for director Justin Kurzel it is his best grossing film to date.

Its unclear if Assassins Creed will continue to do well, it got bad reviews from the press and the audience for these films is usually front loaded so it could drop sharp in the coming weeks.

Falling from the top after 3 weeks is Rogue One although the film enjoyed a decent fourth week gross of £3.2 million which brings its total gross in the UK to £59.6.

The film wont reach the heights of The Force Awakens but this is still a great total gross, also worth a note is that the Monday - Sunday gross of £7.6 million would have put it at number 1.

Also making its debut this week is A Monster Calls at 3 with £2 million and Silence at number 4 with £1.5 million.

Rogue One is the highest total grossing film around at the moment and the longest running film this week is Storks at number 15 which has been around now for 10 weeks.
