Do you have a review or comment for 'Bohemian Rhapsody'?
Highest chart position: 1
Weeks on box office: 20
The pull of Disney's Aladdin live action was far too great for the British public and the film stays at the top of the UK box office for a second weekend leaving Godzilla to enter the box office at number 2.
The Guy Ritchie directed movie stays at the top with a weekend gross of £4.8 million which pushes its total UK gross to £19.7 million.
The film is doing well for a Disney live action remake although not as well as Beauty And The Beast which by its second weekend has taken nearly £40 million.
With this in mind the Genie movie should end up somewhere near the £35 million mark which should mean its Guy Ritchies top film to date and it could become Will Smiths top UK film to date.
The Monster movie sequel was a favourite to hit the top of the box office this week but with a £3.5 million debut it wasn't quite good enough.
The film lands at number 2 this week which is half that of Gareth Edwards 2014 film, even more worryingly this is lower than Roland Emmerich 1998 film which landed at number 1 with £4.1 (not adjusted for inflation).
The animated comedy stays at number 3 on its second weekend with a weekend gross of £2.9 million which pushes the films total gross to £11.8 million.
The film is running below the 2016 original which had taken £16 million by its second weekend of release.
The Elton John bio-film falls to number 4 this weekend with a gross of £2.4 million to boost its total to £11.9 million.
Despite the good reviews the film is not doing as well as Bohemian Rhapsody although with a high grossing top 4 this has effected its chart position although the Freddy Mercury film had made almost double on its second weekend of release.
The Nintendo property keeps its top 5 position this week, at number 5, with a weekend gross of £664,469 which pushes its total UK gross to £12.5 million.
The Marvel mega hit falls to number 8 this weekend, but still only in its 6th weekend the film has taken £86.9 million.
On this weeks UK box office Disney brings its live action remake of Aladdin to the box office, directed by our very own Guy Ritchie, which scores a big number 1 debut, in a weekend with an all new top 3, this leaves Rocketman and The Secret Life Of Pets 2 to enter at 2 and 3.
The latest in the increasing line of live action remakes enters the UK box office, with ease, at the top.

This is by no means as good as 2017's Beauty And The Beast which has an opening weekend of £19 million but it is higher than this years Dumbo.
The Elton John fantasy bio-pic manages to take a fantastic £5.4 million on its debut weekend, but unfortunately released the same day as a Disney movie it only manages a number 2 debut.
The film Directed Dexter Fletcher and Starring Taron Egerton and Jamie Bell has wowed critics and if it repeats a similar course as Bohemian Rhapsody it will hand around a while and could still hit the top of the box office.
The Freddy Mercury film debuted to nearly £10 million and went on to take £55 million in the UK, I dont think this will repeat those figures.
Third new film in the top three and again under normal weekend conditions this would have been the top film but a £3.5 million debut this week means it hits number 3.

Falling out of the top 5 fir the first time this week the Marvel movie has now taken £85.5 million in the UK over 5 weeks.

Making an entry back into the top 15 after a time away the brick movie takes £43,254 on its 9th weekend which boosts its total to £18.6 million.
Rocketman is the fantasy Elton John biopic starring Taron Egerton as the flamboyant singer who is fames for his lavish lifestyle and tantrums.
The film is directed by Dexter Fletcher who took over directing duties on Bohemian Rhapsody when Bryan Singer got fired so the film should be in safe hands.
The film is released in the UK on 24th May 2019 and the BBFC have given is a 15 certificate for drug misuse, sex, very strong language and it has a run time of 121 minutes (2 hours and 1 minute).
