Come back next week when there are 7 new releases.
Roaring into the UK box office at number 1 is Jon Favreau's live action remake of the Disney animated movie of the same name from 1994.
As expected the Disney movie remake of their classic animated tale hits the top in big style with a debut weekend of £16.6 Million.
The film took an incredibly 68% of the top 15 gross.
This isn't too far behind the live remake of Beauty And The Beast, which is so far the top grossing of this trend, which took £19.7 Million in 2017.
That film went on to gross £72.4 Million, so a £50 Million+ total is not out of the question.
The Disney Pixar fourquel takes £2.7 Million on its 5th weekend of release as it holds firm at number 2 on the box office.
The films UK total now stands at a very respectable £47.2 Million.
The post Avengers: Endgame movie falls from the top to number 3 this week with a gross of £2.3 Million pushing the films total to £27.2 Million after 3 weeks.
The film is now the 5th highest grossing film of 2019, and interestingly the whole top 5 of the year are Disney properties.
Danny Boyle and Richard Curtis film based on the music of The Beatles sits at number 4 this week with a weekend gross of £774 Thousand pushing its total to £9.9 Million after 4 weeks of release.
The Conjuring Universe movie falls to number 5 on its 2nd weekend taking £770 Thousand for a £4 Million total.
The Elton John film has been on the box office for 9 weeks now and has taken £22.9 Million, it is at number 13 this week.
In a time when superhero movies and special effects extravagansas rule its good to see a story driven Drama/Comedy hot the top spot with The Upside beating Aquaman this weekend.
Film fans went for the Kevin Heart and Bryan Cranston starring comedy this weekend directed by Neil Burger in a pleasant surprise for the post holiday box office.
In a low taking box office the new release takes $19.5 million on its debut weekend.
Falling to number 2 this weekend the new memeber of the global $1 Billion club takes $17.2 million to boost its total US gross to $287.8 million.
Also new this week at number 3 is this dog based film starring Bryce Dallas Howard and directed by Charles Martin Smith which manages a debut weekend of $11.3 million.
Sony's animated hit falls to number 4 this week this a weekend of $9 million bringing the US gross to $147.7 million.
Finishing off the top 5 is last weeks top new film which takes $8.9 million on its second weekend which brings the films total of $32.4 million.
Doing a yoyo back up the charts this week is the award laden and Oscar hopeful Darkest Hour which goes back to the top after a week away.
The whole of the top 5 was actually very close and all took over £2 million, not something you see that often, Darkest Hour took £2.6 million to brings its total to £15 million.
Falling to number 2 this week is Coco after a week at number 2, a £2.3 million weekend brings the total to £8 million.
Highest new entry of the week comes in at number 3 in the shape of threequel Maze Runner The Death Cure which takes £2.2 million over the weekend.
This is a very similar gross to both the other 2 films in the series and so should end up around the £8 million mark.
Rounding out the top 5 is The Greatest Showman which is doing great business and the biggest shock of the week Early Man which makes its debut at 5.
A new film from Aardman and directed by the great Nick Park should have challenged for the top spot, but a close top 5 gives it a £2 Million debut.
Worth noting, if the chart were counted on a weeks Monday - Sunday bases it would have been quite different, Darkest Hour would still have been the top film but The Greatest Showman would have been second The Post third with Coco fourth and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri fifth.
At the US box office this week the third of the Maze Runner films, Maze Runner: The Death Cure makes a convincing debut at the top.
With a gross of $23.5 million for its debut weekend it is the lowest of the series, but interest has waned big time for the dystopian teen dramas and this is coming 18 months too late, a swift exit from the charts could happen.
Holding up well at number 2 is Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle which has far outstripped expectation and has taken $338 million in the US.
Hostiles comes in as a new entry at number 3, the critically praised film starring Christian Bale takes $10.2 million.
Rounding out the top 5 is The Greatest Showman at number 4 and The Post at number 5.
