You would think there isn't much to talk about this week other than the amazing debut of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but as it happens there were a couple of, albeit much smaller, new releases.
First of all with the dust settling on Star Wars tis time to reflect on its debut, a massive first day and first weekend takes it to the top of the UK box office with £34 million, not the highest, that still is with Spectre but that had a 7 day opening as opposed to this 4 day opening.
The Force Awakens did have a better Friday - Sunday opening though, although its not like for like as these event films are generally front loaded.
The Force Awakens should go on to challenge Skyfall as the top film ever in the UK and could still become the highest grossing film of 2015 should it continue on current track.
Coming in new at 2 is Sisters, good reviews have increased the popularity of the film and the debut of £1.2 million is non too shabby considering it came up against such a massive tour de force.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 falls from number 1 after 4 week in that position to number 5 with £0.5 million and a total UK gross of £26.6 million.
Highest total grossing film on the box office this week is Spectre, at number 6 this week, with £92.7 million, it will not overtake Skyfall as the top film in the UK now.

How The Grinch Stole Christmas made it 2 weeks at the top while 102 Dalmatians was the highest new film at number 3.
Twenty years ago
The Santa Clause was the top new film of the week knocking Goldeneye down to number 2.
Jack Black scores the first top film of the year in the re-telling of the giant movie Gulliver's travels.
Supported by a cast of many British actors including the likes of Billy Connelly, Catherine Tate and James Cordon, the giant movie takes in an excellent £7,028,747 over the New Year period, no doubt helped by the mega press that Jack Black and other members of the cast have done on British TV.
Black has had a mixed bag of success in the UK with his last film, Year One, bombing with £2,776,236, but then he's had hits like King Kong which took £26,080,026 in the UK, so Gulliver's Travels will rank among his higher grossing movies.
Falling to second this week is The Little Fockers with £2,614,802 bringing it to £11,159,635 over a ten day period.
New at 3 is Jake Gyllenhaal in a film directed by Edward Zwick, Love and Other Drugs takes £1,606,253 over the weekend.
New at 4 Peter Weir directs Colin Farrell and Jim Sturgess in The Way Back to the tune of £1,327,650 and falling And finally in the top 5 falling is The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of The Dawn Treader which takes £1,207,264 which brings it total gross now to £11,263,418 which is the lowest of all the Narnia films. This week the top 7 films all took over a million pound each in box office takings, very good compared to last week when only the top film took over a million, and better than last year when only the top 4 took over a million.
