Kenneth Branagh this week scores another number one film with his take on the Agatha Christie classic Murder On The Orient Express, and in turn knock an old friend from the top of the box office.
Directed by and starring Branagh along with a whole host of other big names like Judi Dench, Michelle Pfeiffer and Johnny Depp the film makes its debut with a respectable £4.9 million.
This already makes it his 4th most successful film as a director and by the end of its run it will be most likely 3rd with just Thor and Cinderella out doing it.
As just mentioned Branagh directed the first in the Thor series of films as by coincidence his new film knocks the latest Thor from the top spot.
Thor Ragnorak this week falls only to number 2, and it gave Murder On The Orient Express a good run for its money as it comes in with £4.6 million which brings the total gross to £20 million and its now the most successful Thor film in the UK.
Thor Ragnorak is still pulling in the audience and on a Monday to Sunday bases it would have by a long distance been the top film of the week taking in £8.1 million.
Also new this week is A Bad Moms Christmas which despite trying to celebrate Christmas in November, far too early, takes in £1.7 million at number 3.
Pokémon The Movie I Choose You and The Killing of the Sacred Deer are also new at numbers 9 and 10 respectively.
Kingsman The Golden Circle is the top total grossing movie this week with £24 million and the longest running film with 7 weeks on the chart.

Beauty And The Beast spent its fourth weekend at the top while the highest new film was Boomerang starring Eddie Murphy at number 2.
Two big franchises chose this weekend to release their latest episodes and despite Jigsaw which is part of the Saw series doing well Thor: Ragnarok was the clear winner.
The Disney Marvel Cinematic Universe has become a mammoth series of films that simply cant be matched at the moment and the all star Avengers cars in Thor 3 (try saying that fast) debuts with an incredible £12.3 million making it the 47th top opening in the UK ever.
The film which stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor and is directed by exciting newcomer Taika Waititi joins the ever increasing lineup of Marvel movies and the ever increasing gross for Disney.
The future for the film looks good and, this is nearly double the opening of Thor: The Dark World which went on to gross £20 million so we could have a £35 - 40 million total UK gross.
New in the runner up position is the latest Saw film, this time by the name go Jigsaw, its actually the 8th Saw movie, and opens with £1.8 million.
This is a bit of a low for the series as the average opening for a Saw movie is about £2 - 3 million, but with Halloween this week it will see a boost, but then a big slump after, it could get to £5 million in total.
After a jump back to the top Blade Runner 2049 falls to number 5 with week with £0.6 million over the weekend, after 4 weeks of release this brings the films total to £17.4 million.
Also new this weekend was Breathe, a directorial debut from Andy Serkis starring former Spider-Man Andrew Garfield, it enters at number 8.
With Despicable Me 3 making a reappearance on the UK box office it is once again the longest running film with 17 weeks and the highest total grossing movie with £47.5 million .

Beauty And The Beast stayed at the top for a third weekend while the top new film was 1492 Conquest Of Paradise starring Gerard Depardieu at number 2.
There is no other film to talk about this weekend other than Rogue One: A Star Wars Story which without any problem becomes the top film of the week.
A massive opening weekend of $155 million for Rogue One was good, its not the highest of the year and not as high as Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens from last year, but this is new territory for the Star Wars franchise.
Despite what way you look at it Rogue One has a good start, and like Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them from earlier in the year it shows that these worlds can survive beyond the core story.
Moana fell into the runner up spot this week with $11 million, it gives Disney the top 2 films in the US, not bad, and brings Moana's total to $161.8 million.
Collateral Beauty, new from Will Smith, also opening in the top 10, at 4, with a $7 million debut weekend.
Longest running film and highest grossing for again this week is Doctor Strange at 9 with $226 million after 7 weeks.
The final chart in America before the movie event of the year (well it will be for many!) has Moana from Disney staying at the top for a 3rd straight weekend.
A relatively small drop in weekend takings means the animated feature takes $18.8 million which brings its total to $145 million.
The film wont go down as an absolute Disney classic but it will be one of their good grossing films in the same vein as say Tangled.
Office Christmas Party comes in at 2 this week, maybe bette than expected for a brain out comedy. It takes $17.5 million for the weekend.
Highest total grossing movie on the US box office this week is Doctor Strange which is still in the top 5, at 5, and has taken $222.3 million.
Longest total running film of the week is split 3 way between Doctor Strange, Trolls and Hacksaw Ridge all having spent 6 weeks.
Rounding out November of 2016 with another good weekend at the global box office is Fantastic beasts and Where To Find Them which on its third week makes $177.1 million from 68 countries.
This brings the films total gross to $473.7 million and it wont be long before the film crosses the half a billion mark in global takings.
It might struggle though to make its way to the $1 billion mark though as the film is not yet climbing the heights experienced by the Harry Potter series and many die hard Potter fans are not warming to the new adventures.
Highest new film of the week is Disney's Moana which makes its debut at number 2 with $71 million from 13 countries, it hits most other countries this coming Friday.
Interestingly although the film did well in America China did not do so well with the film only taking $12 million.
Fantastic Beasts is still the film released in the most number of countries and Doctor Strange has the highest total gross on the top 10 this week with $617 million in global takings.
