The second weekend of Avengers: Endgame and the film is still pulling in audiences and takes a lion share of the box office takings for the weekend, Long Shot comes in second but takes less than a £1 million on its debut.
The Marvel mega smash manages to pull in a mammoth £14.3 million at the UK box office on its second weekend of release, and although massive is just under the second weekend of Skyfall from 2012 which took £16.1 million.
With 2 massive weekends the film should start to slow next week, although Marvel/Disney have not slowed on the marketing and repeat visits could happen in the coming weeks.
The film will take over £100 million at the UK box office potentially beating Skyfall, but Star Wars: The Force Awakens £123 million might be a big ask.
Still the film has taken £69.3 million so far and will end up as the top film of 2019, Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker might take more but with a release date of December 19th the total gross will be split between 2 different years (2019 and 2020).
Avengers: Endgame was the only film to take over a million pound at the UK box office this week but the new film from director Jonathan Levine starring Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen makes its debut at number 2.
The romantic comedy takes £856,333 on its debut weekend.
Coming in at number 3 this week is the latest film from The Conjuring universe which enters the box office with a £609,555, one of the lowest of the horror franchise.
The film is Directed by Michael Chaves and stars Linda Cardellini who also appears in Avengers: Endgame and Roman Christou.
The bio-pic of The Lord Of The Rings series of books didn't go down too well with critics and enters the box office at number 4 this week with £550,348.
Films based on our pets have done well in recent year and this film directed by Gail Mancuso enters the box offie at 5 with a half million pound opening.
The Marvel predecessor to Endgame is at 9 this week and has spent 9 weeks on the box office with a total gross of £39.2 million.
The Star Wars Celebration Episode IX panel has just finished and after an entertaining 1 hour 20 minutes of director, producer and stars the title was shown during the first trailer as Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker.
The title brings up more questions, and maybe as widely reported its not the very end of the Skywalker saga, and just maybe we'll see that Luke character one last time.
The end of the trailer has a rather special surprise and brings the whole saga full circle, and ties all the trilogies together quite nicely.
The nods to the original trilogy are rather special in this trailer, thats what happens when you bring on a life long fan to write and direct.
Check out the trailer below, and a new poster is sure to follow, although it looks like the leak from last week may be the teaser poster.
