The was a battle at the top of the Uk box office this week between The Hitmans Bodyguard and Dunkirk and with a gap of less than £50,000 Bodyguard won.

The comedy starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson took £1.9 million on its debut weekend to reach the top, this is the lowest opening for a film to reach number 1 since Billy Elliot The Musical Live took the top spot in September 2014.

This means that the total gross for the top 15 films is also at a low with just £10 million taken.

Falling from the top is Dunkirk, although it held on tight and in the end lost to by a narrow margin taking to second place with £1.8 million.

Dunkirk is still showing strong figures from the week and took £4 million Monday - Sunday to brings its total to nearly £50 million, it is easily the second top grossing film of 2017.

Interestingly the Monday - Sunday figures puts The Hitmans Bodyguard at number 4 with Annabelle Creation and The Emoji Movie coming second and third.

Highest grossing film on the UK box office this week is Dunkirk while the longest running film is Despicable Me 3 with 8 weeks on the chart, its currently number 6.

This weeks top 3 is unchanged from last week meaning that the true story of an expedition to the summit of Everest is still the number one film.

It was a quiet weekend with Everest only taking £1.9 million during it's second weekend of release, this brings it's total gross after 10 days to £6.8 million.

The static top 3 means the highest new film of the week comes in at 4, Drew Barrymore and Toni Collette star the the romantic comedy Miss You Already.

Surprisingly positive reviews haven't helped the film that much and the film debuts with only £487,247.

By far the biggest total grossing film on the box office this week is Minions which just about hangs onto the top 15 and has grossed to date £46.3 million, its still not reached Despicable Me's total gross of £47 million but its not far behind.

There should be a big change in next weeks chart with Ridley Scotts The Martian opening, Robert De Niro in The Intern and a new adaptation of Macbeth with Michael Fassbender.
