HALLOWEEN (18) strong bloody violence, gore https://t.co/gP2gMXUSza— BBFC (@BBFC) October 4, 2018
It was a tight fought battle at the top of the UK box office this weekend between Night School and last weeks top film The House With A Clock In Its Walls but the new comer won in the end.
Taking iver at the top the new romantic comedy starring Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish took the top with £1.59 million, a very slim margin of £0.05million.
Kevin Hart has appeared in some high profile film including Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle so this is a fairly low opening for him, for Tiffany Haddish who starred is the £8 million Girls Trip from 2017 this will go down as her second highest grossing film in the UK.
Taking top honors that week the Jack Black starring film nearly repeated this week but gets knocked down to 2 taking £1.54 million for the weekend, this boosts the films total to £5.5 million after 2 weeks.
The Paul Feig directed film falls to number 3 this week with just over a million pound weekend gross which takes to films UK gross to £3.4 million after 2 weeks.
The American smash hit comedy is still doing well in the UK, although not bringing in the same success as across the pond, but a £0.7 million weekend puts the film at number 4 this week and boosts the total gross to £4.8 million.
Halloween may be just around the corner but this horror film will be out the charts by then, sitting at 5 this week with a £0.6 million weekend brings it to a very respectable £10.5 million UK gross.
The sequel has done amazingly well in the UK and is the top total grossing film again this week, dropping to number 13 this week the film has a UK total gross of £65 million.
It probably wont outgross the original movie's £69 million which for a time was the UK's top film but it will be in the same ball park.
Following suit with the rest of the globe The Nun tops the Uk box office this weekend and as part of the Conjuring series of films this is the second highest debut of the series.
The Nun doesn't quite reach debut of The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Case which took £4.6 on its debut but the £4 million opening isn't that far away.
With Halloween 6 weeks away the film could stick around for a few weeks but horror films like this do have a habit of upfront box office success, the bad reviews wont help much either!
Christopher Robin surrenders the top spot after 3 weeks at the top with a weekend gross of nearly £900,000 which brings the films total gross to £12 million after 4 weeks.
After a slow start to its box office run BlackKKlansman stays at number 3 this week with just under £800,000, this brings the films total gross after 3 weeks to £4.5 million making one of director Spike Lee's top films in the UK.
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again has started to slow down now and this week falls to 4 with just over £700,000.
This brings the films total gross to £63.2 million and although a fantastic total gross for a sequel film is will now struggle to beat the total gross of the original Mamma Mia! and will likely not beat Avengers Infinity War as the top film of the year (so far).
Finally in the top 5 is The Meg which has far outstripped expectation and this weeks take just over £600,00 for a total of £15 million.
Continuing the Conjuring series this week The Nun takes on the box office and wins with the second highest opening gross for a September movie in the US.
The film manages the highest opening of the series so far with a $53 million weekend and should keep up some momentum until Halloween which is still 6 weeks away.
Falling to number 2 this week after a 3 week run at the top is Crazy Rich Asians, a $13 .6 million weekend brings the films total US gross to $136.2 million
New at number 3 is Peppermint from director Pierre Morel who directed Taken and stars Jennifer Garner, the film takes $13.2 million on its debut.
The Meg has been around for 5 weeks now and this weeks takes $6 million which places it at 4, the films total US gross is $131.5 million.
Falling to number 5 this week is Searching which takes $4.5 million to bring its total gross to $14.3 million after 2 weeks.
The top total grossing film on the US box office this week is Mission:Impossible Fallout which has taken $212.1 million so far and has been out for 7 weeks.
Its been 40 years since the first halloween film and this year we get the "final" confrontation between Jamie Lee Curtis and Micheal Myers.
Here is the second trailer for the film directed by David Gordon Green and despite being very dark there is a definite sense of 70's horror about the trailer.
The film is out on the 19th October and you can check out the new trailer below.
With very good reviews from critics, good pre launch buzz and part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe there was never any doubt that Thor: Ragnarok was going to have a huge debut at the US box office.
That debut came in to the tune of $121 million which means the film starring Chris Hemsworth is the 7th biggest opening for an MCU film.
To round out the number its also the 17th number one film from the Disney series and the 8th which has delivered a $100 million plus opening, it beats Spiderman Homecoming from earlier this year.
With Thor out of the way last weeks halloween hit Jigsaw, as expected, falls hard this week and ends up at number 3 with $6.7 million, its total US gross now sits just below $30 million.
Also new on the US box office this week is A Bad Moms Christmas, maybe a little early for to be thinking of the Christmas season but the film makes a very impressive debut at 2 with $17 million.
Longest running film on the US top 10 is Blade Runner 2040 which clocks up 5 weeks and with its impressive $122 million debut Thor Ragnarok is the highest grossing movie on the chart, it has been a very slow second half to the year, until now!
America celebrates Halloween in style and the Hollywood studios embrace this aplenty and this week the American public flocked to see the new Saw movie Jigsaw.
Bringing in a relatively low, especially for an established series, $16.2 million Jigsaw hits the top during the season when people like to be scared.
Expect the film to sink down the charts quickly as if often the case with films that rely on seasonal attraction for its return.
Boo2! A Madea Halloween from Tyler Perry falls from the top on its second weekend to number 2 with a weekend take of $10 million.
This brings the films total gross to $35 million after 2 weeks of release, this followup is falling faster than the previous film which came out exactly a year ago.
Also new this week is Thank You For Your Service which enters the US box office at number 6 with a $3.7 million opening weekend.
Longest running and highest total grossing film this week is for another week IT, the film has now taken $323.7 in total grosses and been on the box office for 8 weeks, this week it sits at 10.
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 .

Despite never having an impact outside of the US Tyler Perry is a massive star in America and his Medea films are box office hits, and this week his latest Boo2! A Madea Halloween hits the top spot.
Taking a reasonable $21 million this means that Perry has hit the US box office top spot with his last 6 film and the Madea films have taken close to a billion dollars in America.
New entry at number 2 is Geostorm, starring Gerrard Butler the film takes $13.3 million at the US box office on its debut.

It would seem audiences love a bit of a scare in the late summer nights and studios and happy to deliver this early Halloween treat.
The Dark Tower, which didn’t have a good start last weekend falls hard this weekend with a 60% drop to $7.8 million.
This brings the films total gross to just $34 million after 2 weekends of play and the future of the new franchise looks in doubt.

Marvel and Disney continue their run of top film by taking their latest Doctor Strange to the top head of 2 other new releases.
Its a new IP for the superhero studio but these days that doesn't matter as Doctor Strange takes $84.9 million on its opening weekend of release.
Not as high as the more established series in the MCU but still a good opening and one which should see the film go up their with some of the best in the long running series.
Second on the chart this week is Troll which debuts with $45.6 million and coming in third is Hacksaw Ridge which takes $14.7 million.
Falling from the top after 2 weeks is Boo! A Madea Halloween, the film lands at 4 this week with $7.8 million, still good considering Halloween is a distant memory now.
Longest run on the UB box office this week is Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children which has now been around for 6 weeks, but the highest total grosser, on its debut, is Doctor Strange.

Boo! A Madea Halloween is still at number 5 and is still only released in a single country, America! Top total grossing movie on the global top 10 this week is Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children which has now grossed $243 million.
Tyler Perry keeps a grip on the top of the US box office despite some competition from Tom Hanks and Tom Cruise.
Boo! A Madea Halloween retains the number 1 position in America with a second weekend gross of $16.6 million, this brings the films total gross after 10 days of release to $52 million.
Coming in at number 2 is the third film in the Dan Brown Da Vinci Code trilogy Inferno, the film would have been expected to go to the top but Halloween was too strong a call.
Tom cruise keeps the pressure up but falls to number 3 with Jack Reacher Never Go Back, its second weekend take is $9.5 million.
Top total grossing movie on the US box office this week is Storks with $68.2 million , it is also the longest running film at 6 weeks.

The new IP from Dreamworks hits the top with a weekend gross of £5.4 million which is about average for an animation from the studio, Kung Fu Panda 3, the last film from them took £4.7 million on its opening.

Its been an interesting week in the UK with the release of the latest James Bond movie Spectre, most unusual of all is that the film got its release after its UK premiere on Monday night rather than the usual Friday.
This opening meant that its weekend figures, although fantastic, were not a true reflection of the usual take on a debut weekend.
To cut a long story short Spectre has done amazingly well, it has the largest UK opening of any film, beating Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban 10 year record by nearly double, it also has the biggest single day gross for any film in the UK, Tuesday and in fact Wednesday.
The films weekly take, from its opening on Monday through to Sunday was £41.3 million, not only the highest ever but also higher than the previous Bond outing Skyfall, which is the highest grossing film ever in the UK.
Its Friday to Sunday total is just shy of £20 million which puts it just behind Skyfall, but that film opened on a Friday, its hard not to believe that Spectre wouldn't have beaten all these figure had it opened on the traditional Friday.
Spectre thus makes its debut at the top of the UK box office with an incredible weekly gross and with no film daring to compete with it, it is also the only new entry on the box office this week, and with very few new film in the coming weeks it will stay a while.
All thats left now is for it to become the top grossing film ever in the UK, it needs over £102 million to achieve this, but with the debut it is entirely possible.

After last weeks biggest selling debut of the year for Jurassic World and its subsequent move to the top of the UK Video chart there was no stopping it and it makes it a second week this week.
Jurassic World is not only the biggest box office hit of the year but it looks to be the biggest selling video of the year outselling the current top video Fifty Shades of Grey.
Top new entry for the week is Mr. Homes which enters the video chart at number 2 on its debut week of sale.
Starring Ian McKellen Mr. Holes was released at the UK box office on 19th June 2015 and entered the chart at number 4 that week.

Also new this week: The 2015 remake of Poltergeist enters the chart on Halloween weekend at number 4 and little known Nicolas Cage film Pay the Ghost enters at 8.
Brand new at the top of the video charts on it's debut week of release is the Dwayne Johnson starring vehicle San Andreas.
The film was released into UK cinemas on May 29th 2015 where it debuted at the top after “The Rock” did a whirlwind of publicity around the film.
A £4.6 million debut was greeted with a 60% drop the following week, a 6 week run on the box office was it gross £11.3 million in the UK.
Not a massive UK hit it did very well across the globe grossing $470.4 million and sits as the 155th top grossing movie of all time.
Mad Max Fury Road falls from the top where it debuted last week into number 2 this week.
Also new on the UK video charts this week are: Insidious Chapter 3 getting ready for the Halloween season at number 3 and Pierce Bronson in Survivor which was a small hit from earlier this year.
No change at the top for Straight Outta Compton which claims its second week as the top film in America with $26.7 million.
This brings the total gross for the Hip Hip film to $111 million over the 2 weeks of release, not bad for a film costing $29 million to produce.
Highest new film of the week was horror film Sinister 2 getting the jump on the Halloween season early.
Sinister 2 takes $10.6 million on it's debut. Also new this week is video game adaptation Hitman Agent 47 at number 4 and American Ultra at number 6.
Another week where there is a highly fought battle for the top, albeit not at tight as last week, where Interstellar battles with Disney's Big Hero 6.
In the end the winner is Big Hero 6 which takes $56.2 million for the weekend, small in comparison to Frozen which was Disney's last film, but still good and the film has had good reviews.
Coming into second place is the Christopher Nolan film, his first since his outing with the Batman franchise, which takes $50 million for the weekend.
Going down to fourth this week is Ouija, the hangover fro the Halloween weekend keeping it going, but it will most probably sink next week.
Check out the full US top 12
Despite it being Halloween new horror film Ouija could not make it's way to the top of the UK box office and instead the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles went back to the top in their third week of release.
Taking nearly £1.5 million for the weekend the Turtles have now spent 3 weeks on release and have taken a total of £11.7 million. The return of the Turtles for a new generation has been a massive success and has so far taken $434.5 million across the world.
Highest new film this week is Ouija which has taken £1.4 million, arguably because of the Halloween weekend and people looking for a fright, the film could disappear quite quickly.
Last weeks top film, Fury, falls to number 3 this week with £1.2 million. It was in reality a very tight top 3 this week with only about £200,000 separating the top films.

Jake Gyllenhaal stars in the film about an independent reporter crawling the street looking for a story, the film had taken just over $10 million according to early figures which just placed it on top.
Falling to number 2 is Ouija, which is only $9,000 behind the top spot figure, but once full figures are in it could all change.
On the whole it was an incredibly weak weekend at the US box office caused by Halloween being on a weekend night and sporting events.
This week war film Fury starring Brad Pitt takes over at the top of the UK box office on it's debut week of release.
A reasonably good weekend gross of £2.7 million sees then over take Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles after they spend just a single week at number 1.
