With Disney's live action The Lion King remaining at the top of the UK box office there were no big new releases so André Rieu 2019 Maastricht Concert: Shall We Dance? Event Cinema showing came in as the highest new entry.

The Lion king

Remaining at the top of the UK box office this week is the live action movie remake from Disney which takes an amazing £10.6 Million on its 2nd weekend.

This puts the films total gross at £36.8 Million puts its above that of the original animation, although adjusted for inflation it is well behind, at the moment.

The Danny Boyle directed movie falls to 5 this week with £613,000 over the weekend pushing its total to £11 Million after 5 weeks.

Horrible Histories: The Movie - Rotten Romans

May a bit of a disappointment the movie version of popular childrens TV show Horrible Histories enters at 6 this week with £609,490.
