Making it a trio of weeks at the top this week Wonder Woman beats again The Mummy while the top new film is Churchill at number 5.
The DC Universe from Warner Bros. really has kicked into gear now with Wonder Woman taking £1.8 million on its third weekend of release.
This puts the films total gross in the UK at £16.2 million, although last years Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice made more it was very front loaded and by this point in its run had really slowed down.
The Mummy has done better in the UK than in other territories where it sunk on the second weekend, this week its still at 2 with £1.1 million for a total of £4.9 million.
Highest new film of the week is Churchill which enters the UK box office at number 5 with £392,732.
The film starring Brian Cox and Miranda Richardson has been praised critically but as a small independent film doesn’t get the reach of a high budget blockbuster and was only screened in 345 sites.
The film has done well to take this much and as is often the case with British film it is sure to hang around for many weeks to come.
Other films making their debut this weekend are Gifted starring Chris Evans and the Nick Broomfield documentary Whitney Can I Be Me at number 10.
Longest running film this weekend is The Boss Baby with 11 weeks on the chart while the top grossing movie is Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 which has now grossed £40 million in total.

ROGUE ONE IS THE FIRST STAR WARS STAND-ALONE FILM, RIAN JOHNSON TO WRITE AND DIRECT STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII THE TITLE FOR DIRECTOR GARETH EDWARDS' STAND-ALONE MOVIE, FEATURING ACTRESS FELICITY JONES, IS REVEALED, AND RIAN JOHNSON IS CONFIRMED FOR STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII -- COMING TO THEATERS MAY 26, 2017.
“Always in motion is the future,” Yoda said. The future of the Star Wars cinematic galaxy, however, is taking shape.
This morning at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, across the street from Lucasfilm, Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger hosted a shareholder meeting where he announced news regarding the first Star Wars stand-alone movie as well as Star Wars: Episode VIII.
Rogue One is the title for the first film in a unique series of big-screen adventures that explores the characters and events beyond the core Star Wars saga. Rogue One will be directed by Gareth Edwards (Monsters, Godzilla) and written by Oscar nominee Chris Weitz (Cinderella, About a Boy, Antz). The first actress cast is Felicity Jones, who garnered an Academy Award nomination and critical acclaim for her performance in The Theory of Everything. The idea for the story of Rogue One came from John Knoll, an Academy Award-winning visual effects supervisor and chief creative officer at Industrial Light & Magic. He will executive produce along with Simon Emanuel (The Dark Knight Rises, Fast & Furious 6) and Jason McGatlin (Tintin, War of the Worlds). Kathleen Kennedy and Tony To (Band of Brothers, The Pacific) are on board to produce and John Swartz (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) will co-produce. The film starts shooting this summer in London and is due for release on December 16, 2016.
In addition, Iger confirmed that Rian Johnson will write and direct Star Wars: Episode VIII. The film, which continues the saga after the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is set for release on May 26, 2017 — forty years and a day after the release of Star Wars: A New Hope in 1977. Johnson is widely considered one of cinema's most gifted young filmmakers, having directed the modern sci-fi classic, Looper, as well as Brick and The Brothers Bloom. He was also behind the camera for three episodes of the critically-acclaimed TV series Breaking Bad, including “Ozymandias,” which series creator Vince Gilligan named as the best installment of the show. Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman, producer of Looper, Don Jon, Brick, and The Brothers Bloom, are on board to produce.
