It was a tight fought battle at the top of the UK box office this weekend between Night School and last weeks top film The House With A Clock In Its Walls but the new comer won in the end.
Taking iver at the top the new romantic comedy starring Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish took the top with £1.59 million, a very slim margin of £0.05million.
Kevin Hart has appeared in some high profile film including Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle so this is a fairly low opening for him, for Tiffany Haddish who starred is the £8 million Girls Trip from 2017 this will go down as her second highest grossing film in the UK.
Taking top honors that week the Jack Black starring film nearly repeated this week but gets knocked down to 2 taking £1.54 million for the weekend, this boosts the films total to £5.5 million after 2 weeks.
The Paul Feig directed film falls to number 3 this week with just over a million pound weekend gross which takes to films UK gross to £3.4 million after 2 weeks.
The American smash hit comedy is still doing well in the UK, although not bringing in the same success as across the pond, but a £0.7 million weekend puts the film at number 4 this week and boosts the total gross to £4.8 million.
Halloween may be just around the corner but this horror film will be out the charts by then, sitting at 5 this week with a £0.6 million weekend brings it to a very respectable £10.5 million UK gross.
The sequel has done amazingly well in the UK and is the top total grossing film again this week, dropping to number 13 this week the film has a UK total gross of £65 million.
It probably wont outgross the original movie's £69 million which for a time was the UK's top film but it will be in the same ball park.
Another change at he top of the US box office this week as romantic comedy Night School takes over from The House With a Clock In Its Walls on its debut weekend.
Starring Tiffany Haddish and Kevin Heart the Malcolm D. Lee directed movie took $28 million on its debut weekend of release wich was enough to take it to the top despite the poor critical response.
Coming in at number 2 this week the animated comedy starring the voice of Channing Tatum could quite beat Night School and took $23 million for the weekend.
Falling from the top to number 3 this week on its second weekend the film took $12.5 million boosting its total US gross to over $44 million.
Dropping to number 4 this week the Paul Feig directed film takes $6.6 million on its second weekend to take its total US gross to $43 million.
Finishing of the top five the horror film based in the Conjuring universe takes $5.4 million on its fourth weekend of release to take its total cume to $109 million making its top grossing film the the film universe.
