The Lego Movie went on to be the top grossing movie of 2014 with £37 million, time will tell with The Lego Batman Movie, this are looking good but we have a number of big franchise movies coming this year which could get in its way.

Fifty Shades of Grey opened in 2015 to £13.5 million over a valentines weekend, this week Fifty Shades Darker opens to £7 million at number 2, but not a valentines weekend, next week will be a tell time for the movie.

Sing falls down to number 3 this week with £2.3 million which brings the films total gross in the UK to £18 million.

Highest total grossing movie on the box office this week is La La Land which has now taken £26.4 million while the longest running film is Trolls which re-enters the chart and spends its 14th week in total.

That makes him perfectly suited to Star Wars, and for this new slate of movies that reach beyond the core characters and storylines of Episodes I through IX."

Trank states, "The magic of the Star Wars Universe defined my entire childhood. The opportunity to expand on that experience for future generations is the most incredible dream of all time."
