A reasonably good weekend gross of £2.7 million sees then over take Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles after they spend just a single week at number 1.

Fury is already director David Ayer highest grossing film in the UK although for Brad Pitt it has a long way to go to beat the £25 million of Ocean's Eleven.
