Highest chart position: 2
Weeks on box office: 4
11th January 2017
The debut of video game adaptation Assasins Creed produces the first new number one film of 2017 knocking off Rogue One: A Star Wars Story after 3 weeks at the top.
Starring Michael Fassbender as the time travelling assassin the film based on a video game debuts at the top with £5.2 million including previews.
As a star one one of the biggest movie franchises around this is by no means the highest debut gross for Fassbender, but it is good for a non franchise debut, for director Justin Kurzel it is his best grossing film to date.
Its unclear if Assassins Creed will continue to do well, it got bad reviews from the press and the audience for these films is usually front loaded so it could drop sharp in the coming weeks.
Falling from the top after 3 weeks is Rogue One although the film enjoyed a decent fourth week gross of £3.2 million which brings its total gross in the UK to £59.6.
The film wont reach the heights of The Force Awakens but this is still a great total gross, also worth a note is that the Monday - Sunday gross of £7.6 million would have put it at number 1.
Also making its debut this week is A Monster Calls at 3 with £2 million and Silence at number 4 with £1.5 million.
Rogue One is the highest total grossing film around at the moment and the longest running film this week is Storks at number 15 which has been around now for 10 weeks.

On the UK video front this week Stallone's Oscar nominated performance in Creed makes its debut at the top.
Creed, which is basically a Rocky sequel, made its debut on the box office chart of 15th January 2016 where it entered at number 3.
The film was critically acclaimed on its release but didn't manage to hit the high notes of the Rocky series and only spent 4 weeks on the box office.
The film managed a fairly decent £5.6 million over its run but it is low for a Rocky inspired movie which has many fans in the UK.
It's actually hard comparing this to previous Rocky films due to price inflation in cinema tickets but the last Rocky film, Rocky Balboa, spent a similar number of weeks on the chart but took £8 million.
The Hateful Eight falls from the top spot where it debuted last week to number 2 this week.
Also new this week are: The Danish Girl at number 4 and I Am Wrath, a John Travolta movie, at number 6.
This week on the UK video charts Quentin Tarantino latest film hits the top on its debut week of release.
The Hateful Eight was released in cinemas on 8th January 2016 to critical praise as one of maverick director's best films in years.
Never hitting the promotional highs that perhaps a film of this calibre should get this film did enter at number 2 on its debut with £2.7 million.
The film only hung around for 4 weeks though and took a reasonable £6.8 million in that time - although for Tarantino this is not a good performance.
Last weeks top film Star Wars: The Force Awakens falls into the runner up spot this week, although it's probably just making way for The Hateful Eight for the week.
Also new on the video chart this week is Room which makes it debut at number 4.
8th February 2016
Kung Fu Panda 3 continues to dominate the world box office this week with a world gross of $44 million over the week, made even more impressive as its only from 8 countries.
The Jack Black voiced animated tale has now taken just shy of $200 million over its 2 week run, and with much of the world still to go it could go onto $500 million with ease.
Highest new film of the week across the world is A Violent Prosecutor, the Chinese film took $19.5 million from its single country of release, albeit the second largest cinema going country.
The Force Awakens is still pulling in the audiences in 47 countries and this week gets closer to taking over Titanic as the second highest grossing film over, its total gross is now $2.08 billion.

18th January 2016
Despite the fact that it is very slowly starting to slow down The Force Awakens manages another week at the top without too much of a challenge.
Its lowest weekend gross since release the seventh Star Wars film takes $72.4 million across the globe which brings its total to $1.8 billion dollars, $2 billion is just around the corner.
The film is the number 3 top grossing film and on current form could even struggle to become the second top grossing film, it has Avatar and Titanic in its way and the $2.8 billion of Avatar seems out of reach now.
Top new film is Ride Along 2 which is new at 3 with a $42 million opening weekend from 12 countries, the USA being the best of those.
Top grossing film on the world box office this weekend is The Force Awakens, and lets face it it will be until it leaves the chart.
