The films debut was maybe a little quieter than expected but it still manages a very reasonable £5.1 Million openeing.
This is in keeping woth similar films of this genre but if you compare it to It Chapter Two, a typical overhyped hollywood movie which it knocks off this week, it is a couple of million lower.
It may be a temporary removal from the top but the Stephen King adaptation falls to number 2 this week after a single week at the top with a weekend gross of £3.1 Million.
This pushes the films total UK gross to £13.5 Million after 2 weeks of release which is £8 Million behind the first film.
Also entering the box office this week at number 3, starring Constance Wu and Jennifer Lopez the film makes quite an impressive debut with £1.3 Million.
The film is from director Lorene Scafaria and is based on a viral magazine column from New York about strippers taking their lives into their own hands.

There were a number of new films hitting the global box office this weekend, many of them from China, but none were big enough to stop IT Chapter Two from getting a second weekend at the top.
Remaining at the top for a second weekend is the Stephen King novel adaptation sequel which this weeks takes a bit drop from its debut sut still manages $87.7 Million from 79 countries.
This means that the Andy Muschietti directed sequel has now taken $323.3 Million globally after 2 weeks of release.
Coming in at the highest new film of the week is the American movie starring Constance Wu and Jennifer Lopez which takes $37.7 Million on its debut weekend.
The film is only released in 16 countries so not a bad effort for a film with little advertising spend from the studio.

The first It movie was a good adaptation of the Stephen King novel that although had its flaws was fairly faithful to the source material, but a sequel was always inevitable as it missed out half the book and concentrated on the main characters as youngsters.
This year on September 6th the sequel, It Chapter 2 is released which concludes the book and today we get the first trailer.
If this is a taste of whats to come were in for a dark scary treat, and Jessica Chastain looks fantastic as the older Beverly Marsh.
If your up for a good scare check out the trailer below.
Two major new releases made their debuts on the UK box office this weekend as Shazam! from the Warner Bros. DC Universe stable did good business and horror film Pet Sematary did OK!
Making its debut at the top of the Uk box office Shazam! makes a good £4 million debut, lower than other super hero movies but for a little known character not bad.
In comparison it is lower than recent origin films Wonder Woman , Aquaman and Captain Marvel but about the same as Marvels Ant-Man who was similarly fairly unknown.
Dumbo falls into second place on its second weekend of release with the Tim Burton movie taking £3.5 million over the weekend pushing its total UK gross to £12 million.
A new adaptation of Stephen Kings horror novel enters the box office at number 3 this week with £1.5 million, perhaps a little lower than expected considering the hype.
The original adaptation took half a million pound on its debut in 1989 which adjusted for inflation is about £1.5 million, the same, that film went on to make £1 million (£3 million adjusted) so expect similar from this version.
The Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson starring movie takes £1.2 million on its 5th weekend of release pushing its total UK gross to £34.6 million.
With a high turnaround on the charts at the moment the films is not only the highest grossing movie on the UK top 15 but also the longest running film on the charts at 5 weeks.
One for the kids at number 5 this week as Peppa Pig returns to the box office for the first time since 2017 where it takes just under a million pound on its debut.
