This weeks top movie in the UK took an excellent £12.3 million at the UK box office on its debut and although this makes it the 54th top opening film in the UK its £3 million lower than Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.

Its only natural that after nearly 20 years of magical films audiences have seen it all before and don't rush to the cinema to see new films from the Wizarding World.

As we have seen this year with Star Wars movies and in the past with film series like The Hobbit even die hard fans can get too much of a good thing and will wait to see a movie.
