The films debut was maybe a little quieter than expected but it still manages a very reasonable £5.1 Million openeing.
This is in keeping woth similar films of this genre but if you compare it to It Chapter Two, a typical overhyped hollywood movie which it knocks off this week, it is a couple of million lower.
It may be a temporary removal from the top but the Stephen King adaptation falls to number 2 this week after a single week at the top with a weekend gross of £3.1 Million.
This pushes the films total UK gross to £13.5 Million after 2 weeks of release which is £8 Million behind the first film.
Also entering the box office this week at number 3, starring Constance Wu and Jennifer Lopez the film makes quite an impressive debut with £1.3 Million.
The film is from director Lorene Scafaria and is based on a viral magazine column from New York about strippers taking their lives into their own hands.
By far Tarantino best film to date the 1960 Hollywood set film falls to 4 this week with £557,889 taking its total UK gross to £19.8 Million.
Jon Favreau animated remake (have we stopped calling it live action now?) falls to number 5 this week with £439,795 taking its total to £73.8 Million.
It is the highest total grossing movie on the chart this week and is the second highest grossing film of the year.
Pixars animated sequel is at number 9 and has the longerst run on the chart with 13 weeks and its total gross is sitting at £64.9 Million.
Although it remains at the top for a second weekend IT Chapter Two fell hard and had a serious challenge from highest new entry Hustlers which makes its debut at the US box office.
After making its debut on the box office chart last weekend the horror sequel remains at the top this weekend despite dropping 55% from last weekend for a take of $40.7 Million.
This takes the Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy starring movies total gross to $153.8 after 2 weeks of release.
The film is unlikely to reach the $327 Million of the first movie.

The film does better than expected with a debut gross of $33.2 Million.

There were a number of new films hitting the global box office this weekend, many of them from China, but none were big enough to stop IT Chapter Two from getting a second weekend at the top.
Remaining at the top for a second weekend is the Stephen King novel adaptation sequel which this weeks takes a bit drop from its debut sut still manages $87.7 Million from 79 countries.
This means that the Andy Muschietti directed sequel has now taken $323.3 Million globally after 2 weeks of release.
Coming in at the highest new film of the week is the American movie starring Constance Wu and Jennifer Lopez which takes $37.7 Million on its debut weekend.
The film is only released in 16 countries so not a bad effort for a film with little advertising spend from the studio.
Also making its debut on the global box office this weekend is the 23rd film in the Detective Conan animated movies.
The Fist Of Blue Sapphire is making its global box office debut this week at 3 although the film has been out for some time, this week is takes $25.4 Million as it expands to 3 countries.

It Chapter Two brings to and end a quiet couple of weeks at the UK box office as it enters the top of the box office while Polish Political drama Polityka enters inside the top 5.
Its been 2 years since the original IT scared audiences on its debit weekend to the tune of £10 Million, the sequel has not quite reached that mark but the £7.3 Million has given the UK box office a boost.
Whereas the first film relied on its young cast and the thought of Pennywise the clown to carry the film this film brings in some big hitting stars like Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy and Bill Hader.
The first film went on to £32 Million in the UK and hung around till the end of October (Halloween), expect this to not quite do as well as its predecessor but hang around until late October.
Quentin Tarantino's (who lets face it is the real star of this movie) 9th film falls to number 2 this week and is easily his most successful film to date as this weekend it take £1 Milllion.

Pixars mega hit has the longest run on the UK box office this weekend as the film notches up its 12th weekend with a total UK gross of £64.5 Million.
After a very quiet couple of weekends on the US box office a monster of a film gets release this weeks in the shape of IT Chapter Two, but it comes in quite a bit below the original IT from 2 years ago, it still dominates the box office.
Following on 2 years from 2017's IT the follow up takes over at the top of the US box office with ease, but whereas the first film opened to a massive $126 Million Chapter Two comes in at $91 Million.
The fan base is still there, and unlike other sequels this isn't a sequel as much as it completes the Stephen King book which interwinds between the two stories throughout.
With favourable reviews the film should see itself do well over the autumn (fall) and in the build up to Halloween where it is bound to get re-promoted.
