Although the anticipation for the new Disney film Moana is quite high its not enough to knock off the three time champion Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Fantastic Beast stays put at the top of the Uk box office for its third straight week with an amazing weekend gross of £4.4 million, this brings the films total gross to £37.8 million.
There should be one more weekend at the top for Beast before the Galaxy Far Far Away comes blasting in, but that should be enough to cement the film as one of the years top films.
The film still has a way to go before beating the lowest grossing Potter film which was 2004's Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban which made £45.6 million.
Highest new film of the week then come in at 2, Moana from Disney makes £2.2 million on its UK debut.
Compared to Frozen from Disney which came out at the same time of year in 2013 this is half its debut gross of £4.7 million hence we probably wont see this scaling those heights.
Also new this week is Sully at number 3 with £1.7 million, Pitbull. Niebezpieczne Kobiety at number 5 with £0.4 million, The Edge of Seventeen at 9 with £0.27 million and Bleed For This at number 10 with £0.25 million.
Highest total grossing movie this week is Fantastic beasts and longest run on the box office is Trolls which has been around now for 7 weeks.
A year ago
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 stayed at the top for a third weekend while the top new film was Christmas With The Coopers at number 5.
Five years ago
Arthur Christmas went to the top of the box office for the first time on its fourth week of release while Happy Feet Two was the top new film.
Ten years ago
Bond stayed at the top for a third week in Casino Royale while the top new film was Flushed Away at number 2.
Fifteen years ago
Spending a third week at the top was Harry Potter and The Philosophers Stone while top new film was Zoolander at number 2.
Twenty years ago
The Long Kiss Goodnight was at the top on its debut weekend, it knocked The First Wives Club down to number 2.
Twenty five years ago
Point Break made it 2 weeks at the top while top new film was Hot Shots! at number 3.
A very quiet weekend in the hangover after Thanksgiving and Black Friday which has Moana from Disney stay firmly at the top while horror Incarnate is the only new film landing at 9.
Moana has now taken a total of $119 million in the US with a second weekend take of $28 million, in such a low grossing weekend not a bad take.
The film wont scale the heights of Frozen but it will be yet another sizeable hit and it fills the gap while we wait for the next Pixar film.
With the rest of the top 10 more or less staying the same as last week the top new film landed right down at number 9 in the shape of Incarnate.
Incarnate took $2.6 million for the weekend and with this showing will most likely fall out of cinemas this week.
Disney threw their latest film hoping to hit the heights of Frozen at US audiences this weekend in the shape of Moana, they are hoping that the long holiday weekend would give it a boost.
With a debut weekend of $55 million over the Friday to Sunday they can't complain, and the long weekend from Wednesday night saw the film gain over $80 million.
With many families out shopping on the big retail weekend that includes black Friday this isn't such a bad debut, and with good reviews this could well go on and on for Disney.
Next weekend will be the big test, no new child friendly film are set for a release in the coming weeks which is good for Moana but then they get the Galaxy Far Far away to deal with, but who from, yes Disney, the Mouse House should have a good holiday.
Last weeks top film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, fell to number 2 this weekend and gained $45 million, this brings the films US total to $156 million, not the heights of Harry Potter.
Also new this week is America is Allied starring Brad Pitt at number 4 with $13 million and Bad Santa 2 at number 7 with $6 million and very bad reviews.
Longest stay on the US box office is split between 3 films, Doctor Strange, Trolls and Hacksaw Ridge all on 4 weeks, although the highest total grossing by a long margin is Doctor Strange with $205 million.
