Making it four weeks at the top Rogue One: A Star Wars story remains at the top of the US box office despite heavy competition from Hidden Figures.
Going one better than The Force Awakens, Rogue One just about manged a fourth weekend with $21.9 million which brings the films total US gross to $477.2 million.
With good word of mouth Hidden Figures expands its cinema count this week and climbs to number 2 with a weekend gross of $21.8 million.
The film has got a lot of Oscar buzz in recent weeks and this could keep the film in the top reaches of the chart for a long time to come, especially if it start to win.
Longest running film on the chart this week is Moana which this week is at 8 while Rogue One is by far the highest total grossing movie.
There is no other film to talk about this weekend other than Rogue One: A Star Wars Story which without any problem becomes the top film of the week.
A massive opening weekend of $155 million for Rogue One was good, its not the highest of the year and not as high as Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens from last year, but this is new territory for the Star Wars franchise.
Despite what way you look at it Rogue One has a good start, and like Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them from earlier in the year it shows that these worlds can survive beyond the core story.
Moana fell into the runner up spot this week with $11 million, it gives Disney the top 2 films in the US, not bad, and brings Moana's total to $161.8 million.
Collateral Beauty, new from Will Smith, also opening in the top 10, at 4, with a $7 million debut weekend.
Longest running film and highest grossing for again this week is Doctor Strange at 9 with $226 million after 7 weeks.
It genuinely feels like the cinema going world is holding its breath for the new Star Wars film which is released this coming week as Fantastic beasts holds onto the top spot for a fourth week.
A very low $43.8 million world gross, from 68 countries, has the film just about beat Moana (which is out in 33 countries) to the number 1 spot, that brings the films total world gross to $680 million.
The new Star Wars film is tapping into a very similar audience which will mean Beasts gets knocked for 6 next week but there can be no complaints as the film has done well.
Highest new film of the week is Office Christmas Party which gets a wide release in 50 countries and takes $33.9 million for the week.
Highest total grossing movie on the world top 10 this week is Fantastic Beasts which also has the wides release.
The final chart in America before the movie event of the year (well it will be for many!) has Moana from Disney staying at the top for a 3rd straight weekend.
A relatively small drop in weekend takings means the animated feature takes $18.8 million which brings its total to $145 million.
The film wont go down as an absolute Disney classic but it will be one of their good grossing films in the same vein as say Tangled.
Office Christmas Party comes in at 2 this week, maybe bette than expected for a brain out comedy. It takes $17.5 million for the weekend.
Highest total grossing movie on the US box office this week is Doctor Strange which is still in the top 5, at 5, and has taken $222.3 million.
Longest total running film of the week is split 3 way between Doctor Strange, Trolls and Hacksaw Ridge all having spent 6 weeks.
Although the anticipation for the new Disney film Moana is quite high its not enough to knock off the three time champion Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Fantastic Beast stays put at the top of the Uk box office for its third straight week with an amazing weekend gross of £4.4 million, this brings the films total gross to £37.8 million.
There should be one more weekend at the top for Beast before the Galaxy Far Far Away comes blasting in, but that should be enough to cement the film as one of the years top films.
The film still has a way to go before beating the lowest grossing Potter film which was 2004's Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban which made £45.6 million.
Highest new film of the week then come in at 2, Moana from Disney makes £2.2 million on its UK debut.
Compared to Frozen from Disney which came out at the same time of year in 2013 this is half its debut gross of £4.7 million hence we probably wont see this scaling those heights.
Also new this week is Sully at number 3 with £1.7 million, Pitbull. Niebezpieczne Kobiety at number 5 with £0.4 million, The Edge of Seventeen at 9 with £0.27 million and Bleed For This at number 10 with £0.25 million.
Highest total grossing movie this week is Fantastic beasts and longest run on the box office is Trolls which has been around now for 7 weeks.
