There are 7 new reelases on the chart this week with Robin Hood the highest but the top 3 stay the same headed by Fantastic Beasts 2.
Doing well in the UK the Fantastic Beasts sequel remains at the top of the UK box office with a weekend take of £5.6 million.
The film isn't doing so well in the US but the figures are looking better elsewhere, in the UK the films total gross is now £22 million after 10 days of release.
This hanging onto to the runner spot the Dr Seuss film takes £3.2 million on its third weekend for a total gross of £14 million.
Still riding high at 3 after 5 weeks is the Freddy Mercury/Queen bio-pic which takes an excellent £2.2 million on its fifth week of release.
The film has now taken £39 million as is the eighth top film of 2018 but should break the top 5 by next weekend.
Highest new entry of the week comes in at 4 with this Taron Egerton and Jamie Foxx starring re-telling of the classic bows and arrows film.
The film takes a relatively disappointing £1.3 million making one of the lowest debuting Robin Hood films.
Closing out the top 5 is a film which is the fourth entry in the long running Nativity! series directed by Debbie Isitt.
This entry takes £0.8 million over the weekend which is higher than the first entry but half that of the other 2.
Opening outside the top 5 is the highly anticipated film starring Claire Foy which is at 6 taking £557,403.
Disney release their big holiday animation Ralph Breaks The Internet over the American Thanksgiving weekend and along with Creed II also making its debut and strong holdovers it makes for a record weekly take with the top 10 grossing over $200 million.
The latest Disney movie had plenty of hype and hence opens at the top of the US box office with a $55 million 3 day weekend and an $85 million 5 day weekend which includes the Wednesday and Thursday of Thanksgiving
This means that the new Ralph film is running $15 million ahead of its 2012 predecessor over the same period and should end up grossing far more in the long run.
The follow up to Creed from 2015 and spiritual follow up to Rocky IV from 1986 the Micheal B. Jordan starring movie opens at number 2 with a $35 million opening 3 days and a $55 million 5 day Thanksgiving.
This is far higher than the original movies opening by $14 million.
The Grinch drops to number 3 this week after 3 weeks of release with a $30 million weekend gross, the film now has a total US gross of $180.5 million.
After opening big last weekend the new Fantastic Beasts film runs into trouble this week and falls hard to number 4 with a weekend gross of just $29.6 million which brings the films 10 gross to a relatively poor $117 million.
One film which has done better than expected and this week sits at number 5 is the Queen bio-pic which this week takes $13 million for a $152 million total US gross.
One film that has not done too well on its debut weekend is the new Robin Hood movie starring Taron Egerton which limps onto the box office chart at number 7 with a poor $9.1 million gross.
There have been many cinematic tellings of the Robin Hood story and this we we get another one courtesy of director Otto Bathurst.
Starring Jamie Dornan and Taron Egerton this new adaptation has been given a 12A rating in the UK for moderate violence, threat.
The film is release on 21st November and has a running time of 116 minutes.

Highly anticipated sequel Pitch Perfect 2 makes it's debut at the top of the box office chart this week despite some strong competition from the Mad Max remake.
Pitch Perfect 2 took a very reasonable £5 million over the weekend which is only a million shy of the entire box office run of the previous film.
Rolling in half a million behind is Mad Max Fury Road, the sequel/remake of the Mel Gibson films received excellent reviews from the critics and was expected to get to the top but the aca-girls were simply too much.
Falling into third this week after a trio of weeks at the top is Avengers Age of Ultron, the Avengers sequel has taken an incredible £43.2 million to date and is the top film of the year so far.
Bombay Velvet at number 14 is the only other new film on the top 15 this week.

It's like it was 1991 again and there is a new Robin Hood film in production, this time it wont star an American with a fake British accent, it'll star an Australian with a fake British accent.
That Aussie will be Russell Crowe, and today USA Today has the first image of the man in his "Hood" gear, check out the image below.
The BBC currently has a TV series of Robin Hood running on Saturday night, it's now in it's 3rd series, I;m not a fan of the show but this could be what has ignited the reason for this film. Now don't get me wrong the film is being directed by Ridley Scott who is one of the best British directors alive and I usually love his movies, but the image of Robin Hood in the BBC promos is how I imagine Robin Hood to be.
The publicity still of Robin Hood looks more like someone caught Russell Crowe out on a Sunday afternoon taking the dog for a walk and he thought he would take a bow and arrow in case he saw some deer to shoot.
I'm not quite sure what different angle this film can have on the legend but I can tell you that I was more excited about Kevin Costner's Prince of Thieves back in 1991 than I am this.
