This week the Michael Vaughn directed Kingsman The Golden Circle takes over the top of the UK chart with ease, IT makes a respectable fall to number 2.
Following on from the 2015 film Kingsman The Golden Circle this week makes its debut at number 1 with a weekend gross of £8.5 million.
Kingsman had a debut weekend of just over £4 million do the sequel has double that gross and has already made half of the originals total gross.
With this debut Kingsman 2 should be able to getting in the region of £25 - £30 million quite easily.
After a couple of weeks at the top IT falls to the runner up spot although it still manages a very respectable £2.8 million.
This brings the films total gross to £26.4 million, with plenty of milage left in the film we could be looking at £35 million total gross.
With the new Kingsman movie out this week studios didn't want to put anything of note against it so there are no other new film on the top ten.

In an unusual move this week, and maybe due to little in the way of new releases, Ron Howards Rush moves 1 place UP to the top of the box office chart.
Taking £1.3 million from the weekend Rush takes over at the top, simply swapping places with last weeks top film Insidious Chapter 2.
There was little in the way of new films, the biggest of which is the critically panned film Diana, about the life of the late Princess which landed at 5 with a small take of $pound;600,000.
A small side note, the latest Grand Theft Auto Game was released last Monday which may have kept the young and middle aged men from cinemas, as reflected in the new releases.
One year ago ParaNorman was still at the top with Killing them softly a way behind at 2 being the highest new film.
Five years ago Tropic Thunder was the top film new film of the week smashing the previous weeks number 1, Pinapple Express, down to 4.

And fifteen years ago there was no shifting Saving Private Ryan from the top although highest new film of the week Lethal Weapon 4 had a good go and came within a whisker, it landed at 2.
