The UK like the rest of the world embraced the new Avengers movie this weekend and took it to a dizzying height on its debut weekend.
It wasn't quite a record breaking weekend in the UK and Avengers Infinity War has a gross or £23.1 million making it the 6th top grossing debut weekend ever.
This amazing weekend gross also means that on its debut it is already the 5 highest grossing movie of 2018, stable mate Black Panther is the top grossing film of the year with £50 million and Avengers should overtake it in a couple of weeks.
At 2 this week is The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society with a weekend gross of just shy of a million which brings the films gross to £3 million.
At 3 is A Quite Place, the sleeper film takes £920,000 for the weekend which brings its total gross to just shy of £10 million.
Hanging on at 4 and 5 is Rampage and Peter Rabbit which have not got a total gross of £8 million and £39 million respectively.
Dwayne Johnson in his monster flick Rampage managed to stay top of the UK box office this weekend in what was a very quiet window.
3 things happened this weekend in the UK which led to a very quiet time at the box office, the weather was very good, there were major sporting events on TV and nothing new really came out in anticipation for Avengers Infinity War next weekend.
This led to Rampage remaining the top film with £1.4 million which brings the film total in the UK to £6.4 million.
Climbing back to number 2 is A Quiet Place with just over a million pounds which brings the films total UK gross to £8.2 million.
Highest new film of the week is the Mike Newell directed The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society which enters at 3 with £825,777.
This mean that for the first time in a while only the top 2 films took over a million over the weekend.
Holdovers finish off the top 5 with Ready Player One at number 4 and Peter Rabbit at number 5, they have a total UK gross of £15.4 and £30.8 respectively.
After an incredible 4 weeks at the top of the UK box office Rampage come knocks Peter Rabbit down to number 2.
Starring Dwayne Johnson the video game adaptation lands at the top with a weekend gross of £4 million.
After the success of Johnson last film Jumanji he is a box office pull at the moment and this could have good legs and go on to gross over £20 million in the UK.
Peter Rabbit falls to number 2 this week with £2 million which after 5 weeks brings the films total gross to and excellent £38 million.
After entering the chart at 2 last week A Quiet Place falls to number 3 this week with £2 million bringing the film UK gross to £6 million.
Ready Player One falls to 4 this week with just over a million bringing the total gross to £14 million while new at 5 is Truth or Dare which lands with just shy of a million.
Peter Rabbit follows in the footsteps of the previous top film Black Panther and makes is 4 weeks at the top in a row.
The film this weeks takes £3.2 million which brings the film total to £32.2 million.
Staying at number 2 this week is Ready Player One which looses ground on Peter Rabbit this week taking £2.4 million from the weekend.
This pushes the Spielberg directed film to a total UK gross of £11.5 million after 2 weekends of release.
Highest new film of the week is A Quiet Place directed by John Krasinski and starring himself and his wife Emily Blunt.
The critically acclaimed film takes £2.7 million on its opening weekend.
Love, Simon is a new entry at number 4 this week and Isle of Dogs from Wes Anderson falles to number 5 this weekend.
With the release of a new Steven Spielberg film your expect a new number 1 film, but Peter Rabbit kept the film at bay for a second weekend at the top.
It was a tight race with only half a million in it but Peter Rabbit raking £5.6 million for the weekend to boost its total UK gross to £21.6 million.
Director Steven Spielberg gave us Ready Player One this week which was released to great reviews and public demand but it failed to reach the top on its debut hitting number 2 with £5.1 million.
Also new this week at number 3 is the Wes Anderson directed animation Isle Of Dogs which takes a better than expected £1.6 million over the weekend.
Another new entry in the top 5 has Blockers hitting number 4 with £1.3 million.
Finishing off the top 5 is Black Panther with takes just over a million for the weekend, this brings the film total UK gross to £46 million and it is by far the top film of 2018 so far.
There are still some big film to be released this year but it will take potentially the other Marvel movie Avengers Infinity War to beat this total as I think the likes of Solo A Star Wars Story wont have the legs to beat it.
After a very good 4 weeks at the top of the Uk box office Black Panther givers up this week and falls down to number 2 leaving Peter Rabbit and Tomb Raider to fight it out.
The Will Gluck directed Peter Rabbit starring the voice of James Cordon easily made it to the top in the end with a weekend gross of £7 million.
Also making its debut is Alicia Vikander in the reboot of Tomb Raider which make a decent weekend gross of £3 million.
In comparison the Angelina Jolie first outing from 2001 took £3.8 million on its debut, with inflation the reboot is a bit of a let down.
Black Panther may have fallen to number 3 this week but a £1.8 million 5th weekend takes the film total UK gross to £42 million, its global gross is now nearly $1.2 billion.
The Greatest Showman continues to do really well and a 12 weekend gross of just over £1 million brings the films total gross to nearly £39 million.
Red Sparrow finished off the top 5 this week.

Last weeks highest new film Game Night falls from its debut of number 2 to number 4 on its second weekend on the box office.
Finishing off the top 5 this week is last weeks is Peter Rabbit which finds its self at 5.
As was widely expected the dominance of the Black Panther movie continued over the films second weekend in America with the film grossing again as much as the rest of the top 15.
With a weekend take of $108 million it brings the films total gross to $400 million in America and is challenging Marvels top grossing film, the first Avengers, it is currently ahead on the same point of its run.

Finally on the top 5 is Fifty Shades Freed which has done better than expected taking $7 million on its 3 weekend but now falling fast.
As has become the norm in the 10 years Marvel have dominated the Superhero movie scene when a new film is released is not only dominated it destroys all in its path.

Third this week is Fifty Shades Freed which falls quite heavy from its number one debut with $16.9 million for a $76 million total.
Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle has so surpassed all expectations its now looking like it could outgross Sony stablemate Spider-Man which before now was the highest grossing movie for the studio, a $7.6 million 9th weekend pushes its total to $377.6 million.
Finally Clint Eastwood's The 15:17 To Paris is at number 5 with $7.6 million for a total of $25 million.
Its the 'climax' to the Fifty Shades series and judging from the critical response Fifty Shades Freed is 1 film too many.
Coming in with a weekend gross of $38 million it is by far the lowest grossing debut for a film in the series, a series which has corroded far faster than many other.
Expect the film to sink quite quick down the box office after this debut and potentially to be on home video by early summer.
