Another big week for new releases and for the second week in a row an all new top 3 on the video chart with Goosebumps leading the way.
Starring Jack Black the film was released at the UK cinema on 5th February 2016 where it entered the UK box office at number 1.
The following week the film fell to number 5 and had a relatively short 6 week stay on the UK box office before disappearing.
In that time though the film did manage to gross a fairly reasonable £8.5 million although this is quite low for a Jack Black film for which King Kong is his highest grossing movie.
Also for director Rob Letterman it is his lowest grossing movie to date.
The rest of the top 3 reads like: Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie is new at number 2 and Ride Along 2 is new at number 3.
Last weeks top film Spotlight falls right down to number 8 this week.
Soccer documentary Bobby is also new this week at number 12.
Making it four weeks at the top of the box office chart this week, and becoming the top grossing film ever in the UK in that time Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The seventh Star Wars film has not taken just about every honour the box office can give, except for highest grossing film across the globe, which it will probably leave where it is.
The figure for The Force Awakens this week are, £6 million for the weekend, £11 million for the week and £108 million total gross, it is of course the highest total grossing film on the chart.
Highest new film of the week is the 8th Quentin Tarantino film (have directors ever promoted film before by how many they have made!) The Hateful Eight which enters the chart at number 2.
The film takes £2.7 million for the weekend, £4 million behind The Force Awakens showing how popular that film still is.
The are no other new films on the box office top 10 this week.

Twenty five years ago

You would think there isn't much to talk about this week other than the amazing debut of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but as it happens there were a couple of, albeit much smaller, new releases.
First of all with the dust settling on Star Wars tis time to reflect on its debut, a massive first day and first weekend takes it to the top of the UK box office with £34 million, not the highest, that still is with Spectre but that had a 7 day opening as opposed to this 4 day opening.
The Force Awakens did have a better Friday - Sunday opening though, although its not like for like as these event films are generally front loaded.
The Force Awakens should go on to challenge Skyfall as the top film ever in the UK and could still become the highest grossing film of 2015 should it continue on current track.
Coming in new at 2 is Sisters, good reviews have increased the popularity of the film and the debut of £1.2 million is non too shabby considering it came up against such a massive tour de force.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 falls from number 1 after 4 week in that position to number 5 with £0.5 million and a total UK gross of £26.6 million.
Highest total grossing film on the box office this week is Spectre, at number 6 this week, with £92.7 million, it will not overtake Skyfall as the top film in the UK now.
A year ago
The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies stayed at the top of the box office for another week with Night At The Museum Secret of The Tomb the highest new film at 3.
