The UK is still Ga Ga for La La Land and on its second weekend of release the film manages to keep hold of the number 1 spot holding off new film Split.

A fantastic second weekend gross of £4.3 million is enough to keep the film at the top which brings the films total gross to a very good £14.9 million.

Making its debut in the UK is Split which enters the UK at number 2 with a weekend gross of £2.5 million.

Its been a while since director M. Night Shyamalan had a big hit at the box office and it looks like he may have one here.

Favourable reviews will keep the film bringing in cinema goers and despite the fact that the film missed the top it will still do well.

Also new this week is xXx The Return of Xander Cage at number 3 with £1.6 million and Lion which makes its debut at number 4 with £1.2 million.

Longest running film this week is Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which has now been on the box office for 10 weeks and the highest grossing film is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story which is now on £64.3 million.
