The Super Heroes of Avengers Infinity War and the all singing all dancing spectacular of Mamma Mia! Here we go again fought it out for the top film of 2018 at the UK box office.
The latest Avengers movie from the Disney Marvel Studios topped the yearly box offie chart on its release in April and never let go.
The film took an amazing £70 million in the UK over a 10 week stretch on the box office and is the 10th top film in the UK ever.
The Sequel to 2008's top film could only manage 2nd place 10 years later although it gave the Avengers movie a run for its money.
The Super Trooper movie took £65.6 million over its 11 week run on the box office and its the 11th top film ever in the UK.
Still in sequel territory as Pixar released a follow up to their 2004 original which took £55.9 million at the UK box office over its 14 week run.
Released at the beginning of the year before Avengers Infinity War this Marvel movie set the tone and if the 4th top film of 2018.
The film took £50 million at the UK box office over its 12 week run.
Maybe a bit of a suprise this one, the Bryan Singer directed Queen/Freddy Mercury bio-pic is the fifth top grossing film of the year.
With a UK gross of £46 million over its 9 week (and counting) box office run it is also the directors top grossing UK film.
The story of 2018 in the UK is that it bucked the trend a little from the rest of the world and we didn't just go mad for super hero movies, we like our musicals, The Greatest Showman despite being a 2017 took £41 million in 2018 and Bohemian Rhapsody has plenty of music in it.
Here is the full UK top 10 grossing films in 2018.
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.
Not a lot of movement on the UK box office this week as Black Panther stays at the top for a fourth weekend and the top new film is at number 12.
The last time a film spent four consecutive weekends at the top was July 2017 when Dunkirk did it, Black panther has followed a very similar path and that film went on to make £44 million.
Black panther this weekend takes £2.9 million which brings the films total UK gross to £39.8 million, it is the top grossing film of the year, it has also just passed the $1 billion mark globally.
Breaking outside the top 10 briefly, with a lack of any big blockbusters this weekend the top new film of the week is You Were Never Really Here starring Joaquin Phoenix which is new at 12 with a weekend gross of £288,344.
Climbing to 2 this weekend is The Greatest Showman which is having one of the greatest box office runs ever, 11 weeks in and its not left the top 5 and its grossed over £1 million on each of those weeks.
This week it takes £1.5 million, an increase on last week, which brings its total gross to an incredible £37 million.
The rest of the top 5 is filled with Red Sparrow, last weeks top new entry falls to 3, and then hold overs Game Night at number 4 and lady Bird at number 5.
Worth noting is the 2 big Oscar winning film saw mixed fortunes this week, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri dropper from last week while The Shape Of Water saw a very slight increase.
Black Panther holds it reign at the top of the UK box office for a second weekend, but story of the week is The Greatest Showman which after 9 weeks of release climbs to number 2.
With no shock that Black Panther is number 1 on its second week of release it takes over £6 million for the weekend which raises its total to £29.5 million.
It is now the highest grossing movie of 2018 taking over from the number 2 film this week The Greatest Showman.
The Hugh Jackman starring film this week climbs back up to number 2 with a 9th weekend gross of just over £2 million, an increase from the last 2 weekends grosses.
For a film that was released around Christmas time it has shown incredible strength at the box office and after 9 weeks has taken almost £2 million each week, used to be the top grossing film of the year and had taken £33 million so far (£5 million was taken in 2017).
Highest new film of the week is Lady Bird which lands at number 3 with a gross of £1.2 million, Oscar night and good reviews could keep it around for a while as a slow burner.
Fifty Shades Freed is at number 4 this week while I, Tonya makes a new entry at number 5 with a weekend gross of just over a million pound.
Marvel released their latest superhero this weekend into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the shape of Black Panther and became the studios second best debut behind Avengers Age of Ultron the second Avengers movie.
A weekend gross of £17.7 million means the film is less than a million behind the multi superhero film.
The second Avengers movie went of to make just shy of £50 million so Black Panther could well go over that mark in the coming weeks, the first Avengers movie, Avengers Assemble is the top grossing Marvel movie at £51 million.
Falling to number 2 this week is Fifty Shades Freed which takes £2.7 million in its second weekend for a £13.3 million total so far.
New at number 3 is the critically praised The Shape of Water from Guillermo del Toro, a £2.4 million debut isn't hit top debut, Hellboy II: The Golden Army did better, but its right up there.
Holding on at number 4 is The Greatest Showman which has now been around for 8 week and is the top grossing film of 2018, so far, and has taken an amazing £30 million.
Finally Coco from Disney Pixar is still in the top 5 and has now taken £15 million over 5 weeks.
