A very slow week on the home entertainment charts this week with films flip-flopping wound like they done know what to do, Bad Boys For Life goes back to the top and A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood is the top new film.
Here is a breakdown of the top 5 movies.
Will Smith and Martin Lawrence star in this return of their buddy cops set in Miami, the film has been on the chart for 3 weeks now and goes back to the top.
Sam Mendes much praised single shot war movie falls from the top to number 2 on its 4th week of release.
Director Greta Gerwig brings up her adaptation of the much loved novel that goes back up the chart to number 3 on its 3rd week of release.
Pixars first new IP in a number of years had its box office run cut short but has lived well in the home entertainment market where it falls to number 3 on its 4th week of release.
The Star Wars movie that truly split the fan base and ended the 9 film saga falls to number 5 this week, its 7th week of release.
Tom Hanks gives a steller supporting performance as Mr. Rodgers in this true life tale of the famed American children's entertainer.
As the subject matter was not known in the UK the film had to rely on its star power to pull in audiences, hence the film didn't do that well in the UK makings its debut in late January at number 8 on the box office.
The film only hung around for a couple of weeks taking just £1.8 Million.
Hollywood magazine Variety is reporting that Steven Spielberg will not direct the upcoming Indiana Jones movie and will hand over duties to James Mangold.
Steven Spielberg has to date directed all the Indiana Jones films, and its always been thought he would always directed the movies, especially as his friend George Lucas has written the movies especially for the fames director to make.
The big question is has James Mangold been hand picked by Spielberg? His directing duties to date are 2019's Ford V. Ferrari (Le Mans '66 in the UK) which was nominated for a number of awards and he was the executive producer on The Greatest Showman.
With this in mind the big question is should be have a new Indiana Jones movie? The last film in the franchise is considered the worst, and without the Spielberg/Lucas/Ford magic can it ever live up to the franchises best moments?
Or maybe its time to hand over to a new director and get some new life in the flagging series, although Harrison Ford will certainly play Indiana Jones despite the fact he is pushing 80.
Time will tell and the release date for the movie is currently set for sometime in mid 2021.

Sam Mandes critically acclaimed movie 1917 makes its UK debut at the top of the box office knocking Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker down to number 3 with Little Women climbing to 2.
The critically acclaimed movie directed by Sam Mendes makes its UK debut at the top of the box office with a opening weekend gross of £7.4 Million.
It hard to compare this to his previous films as the famed director was behind the camera for the Bond movie Skyfall which opening in the UK to £20 Million.
In comparison to his non Bond movies it is his best opening to date, and with the awards season in full flow and the film nominated and winning many awards including Oscars and Golden Globes the final gross could high.
Greta Gerwigs version of the classic novel goes up the box office this weekend to number 2 with a weekend gross of £2 million.
This puts the films total gross at £13.2 Million after 3 weeks of release.
J.J. Abrams final Star Wars movie in the Skywalker saga falls from the top to number 3 this week with a weekend take of £1.8 Million.
The film has ben on general release now for 4 weeks and has taken an excellent £54.8 Million and it is the highest total grossing movie one this weeks box office.
As good as this is it is still the lowest grossing from of the sequel trilogy which started with Star Wars: The Force Awaken and then was followed by Star Wars: The Last jedi.
Guy Ritchies return to London based gangster movies falls to 4 this weekend with £1.7 Million for a 2 week total of £5.9 Million.
Dwayne Johnson sequel movie falls to 5 this weekend with £1.69 Million for a 5 week total of £30.0 Million.
The film is running just a little lower than the previous film in the series and will most likely end up with a gross just a little lower at around the £35 Million mark.
Disneys sequel animated movie falls to number 7 this week but has he longest run on the box office with 8 weeks, it has taken a UK total gross of £51.2 Million.
The original Terminator film came out of no-where, it was the second film by the young fledgeling director James Cameron and it was fresh and exciting and had a story that was clever and captivated audiences.
The follow up came 6 years later and with the hype and incredible (for the time) special effects the film was going to be a hit, Arnold Schwarzenegger was at the height of his fame.
Terminator 2: Judgement Day was a massive box office hit, which had a good story, despite some plot holes, with over the top exciting action and it went on to gross over $500 Million globally which adjusted for inflation would be about $1.2 Billion today.
After that the rights to the franchise moved all over the place, then in 2003 we suddenly got Terminator 3: Rise Of THe Machine, and despite the film having fairly good reviews, starring Schwarzenegger and grossing over $400 Million globally it felt more like a stand alone movie than part of the series.
Then the big trouble started and we got Terminator Salvation in 2009, directed by McG and starring Christian Bale the film reportedly had a very troubled shoot and with Schwarzenegger on California Governor duties he didn't star just appearing as a computer generated Terminator towards the end for a brief second or 2.
Despite this negativity of both the film and the plot it still grossed nearly $400 Million, but the series was stagnating and each film was grossing less and less as each film went on.
The series needed a reboot and in 2015 Schwarzenegger came back and director Alan Taylor tried to get a feeling of the origin film in a reboot that mixed the story from The Terminator changing the time line and creating a new path for the series, but things were too confusing and the film flopped and talk of a followup ended.
It must have seemed like the ideal situation, bring back Schwarzenegger, bring back Linda Hamilton as the original Sarah Connor, and to top it off bring back the original creator James Cameron to write the story and produce the movie, he's too busy directing Avatar 2 so passed that duty off to Deadpool director Tim Miller.
What we have here then is series fatigue, after the 2015 reboot promise the paying public and fans have simply lost hope in trying to get a film which brings back the memory of the first 2 films, Dark Fate does not do this.
Then we have the talent, Arnold Schwarzenegger is no where near the star he was in 1991, arguably the biggest, and he is no longer the mean looking muscle machine he once was, then Linda Hamilton who rarely appears in films these days so do audiences know who she is or connect with her? Then James Cameron, after Avatar, which granted was the biggest film ever until this year, is hardly a household name anymore, these elements don't make for a must see movie.
The original 1984 story has now been told again and again in the Terminator movies, how many time can the story of a robot sent from the future to kill someone who is in turn protected by another person/machine sent from the same future, despite how much you mix things up, audiences are clearly bored of this rehashing in each reboot.
Special effects today have to have the WOW factor to sell a movie, Terminator 2 had it, but its harder to do in a day and age when almost anything is possible and sadly Dark Fate simply fails to have it.
The film reportedly had a troubled post production with director Miller and writer/producer Cameron disagreeing over the edit, and it shows, it leaves you feeling like you have just watched a disjointed movie when you leave the cinema.
Finally, and maybe this is a personal thing, the title, Dark Fate is a bit cheesy and doesn't come close to Judgment Day or even Salvation, Rise of the Machines was even a good sub title. A title shouldn't matter but it has got to sell the film, Genisys was not good and Dark Fate is even worse.
The movie will struggle to make $300 Million at the global box office, this in a day and age when tentpole movie are expected to take over a Billion is not good enough, the series future is looking bleak and it could be this is the last nail in the coffin.
There is one last hope that might bring the series back! If James Cameron can find a story somewhere within that is different but keeps within the Terminator universe, and if he decides to direct the movie himself we may just get a 7th movie, its a big ask with his involvement in the Avatar films, but this might mean we get a good few year before another movie, no bad thing.
Like many other long running series, Alien for example, the series won't just lie back and enjoy the success it's had, we most likely will see another movie in the series but it will be for another generation, and once we have forgotten the bad box office run of Terminator: Dark Fate.
