This puts the film total UK gross at £18.4 Million after 2 weeks of release and it is the highest grossing movie of 2020 so far.
The re-teaming of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence after 17 years gives the movie a number 2 entry this week with £3.7 Million.
Normally this would have been a number 1 entry except for the fantastic weekend gross of 1917, but with good reviews and great results across the rest of the world the story isn't over yet.
Greta Gerwig's movie version of the classic novel falls to 3 this week but holds up well with a weekend gross of £1.4 Million and £16.3 Million in total after 4 weeks.
Guy Ritchie's London gangster movie falls to 4 this weekend with £1.09 Million on its 3rd weekend for a £7.8 million total.
The sequel movie is at number 5 this weekend with £1.06 Million for a £32.4 Million total after 6 weeks.
The movie has not performed as well as the previous movie which at this point had made £34.1 Million but its not far behind.
Falling to number 6 this weekend is the Star Wars saga movie which this week is the highest total grossing movie on the box office with £56.4 Million after 5 weeks of release.
Disney's sequel movie has been a smash hit in the UK and this week is the longest running film on the chart at 9 weeks, it has taken £51.9 Million.
Returning 17 years after their last teaming Will Smith and Martin Lawrence team up as Bad Boys again in Bad Boys For Life and hit the top with a far better than expected debut while Robert Downey Jr. limps into number 2 with Dolittle.
With a change of director from Micheal Bay to Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah the Will Smith and Martin Lawrence sequel vehicle hits the top of the US box office with ease taking a surprising $59.1 Million.
The last time we had a Bad Boys movie was 17 years ago in July 2003 when Bad Boys II made its debut at the top with $46.5 Million, so the love for this franchise has not demished at all.
Robert Downey Jr. first movie since the mega smash hit Avengers: Endgame which went on to be the highest grossing movie of all time limps into the box offie with a debut gross of $22.5 Million.
This will be worrying for the studio and it could end up as one of the stars lowest grossing movies.
To put this into perspective the debut gross is even lower that the $29 Million debut of the 1998 Eddie Murphy Doctor Dolittle, without adjusting for inflation.
Sam Mendes much praised war movie drop to number 2 this weekend with a $22.1 Million weekend gross putting the film total at $76.7 Million after 4 weeks of release, 2 weeks on wide release.
The Dwayne Johnson starring sequel movie falls to 4 this weekend with $9.5 Million for a US total gross of $270.4 Million after 6 weeks of release.
J.J. Abrams final star wars movie falls to 5 this week with $8.3 Million on its 5th weekend of release.
The film has without doubt been a success with a total US gross of $492 Million and is the highest total grossing movie on the box offie this week, but in terms of film in the Star Wars franchise, and the marketing hype the film was given, it is perhaps a failure and wont reach the $620 Million of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Some good news this week for the film, it has passed the $474.5 Million of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.
The much praised South Korea movie is the longest running film on the US box office this week with 15 weeks and a total gross of $27.7 Million.
Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker makes its UK box office debut at the top of the chart while Cats makes its debut at number 2 despite being panned by critics and movie goers alike.
After 44 years the series of movies that started with Star Wars in 1977 comes to an end, and as with all the other movies in the saga the new films makes its debut at the top, this time with a gross of £14.4 Million.
There is an element of disappointment here as Star Wars: The Last Jedi took £28 Million on its debut and Star Wars: The Force Awakens £34 Million.
This could be because the film has not had good reviews from many critics or it could be because the fans have become a little tired of Star Wars films, this is the 5th movie since Disney bought Lucasfilms.
When George Lucas was making Star Wars movies he released each movie 2 - 3 years apart and each movie felt like an event and the fans were hungry for more, Disney have had a far more agressive release schedule and the sequel trilogy has only taken 4 years to complete.
Unlike the Marvel movies it would seem the Star Wars fans need far longer between movies, saying that this is a good film to finish of the saga and it could well have a long run and make its money in the new year.
The writing was on the wall for this movie after the criticism the first trailer got, and hence the movie makes its debut at number 2 but with a relatively low £3.2 Million.
The sequel movie starring Karen Gillan and Dwayne Johnson falls to number 3 this week, after making its debut at the top last week, with £2.9 Million.
This gives the movie a 2 week total of £14.7 Million which is a couple of million lower than its predecessor.
Disney's sequel movie drops to number 4 this weekend with a gross of £2.2 Million.
This gives the film a total gross of £41.7 Million after 5 weeks of release which is over £10 Million higher that its predecessor.
The festive movie has proved to be a bigger films in the UK than many other parts of the world and while it falls to number 5 this weekend with £803,948 it has still taken a quite respectable £16.9 Million over 6 weeks.
The mega smash hit DC superhero villain movie climbs back onto the box office this weekend spending its 11th in total and has now taken £57.9 Million.
There was never going to be any doubt that Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker was going to be big on its release, the question was how big, and actually it has disappointed a bit.
The final instalment in the Star Wars Skywalker saga hits the top of the global box office in its debut weekend with $375 Million from 57 countries.
This is perhaps a disappointing debut for such a high profile film like Star Wars and Disney may perhaps have been looking for a bigger debut, it is the lowest debut of the sequel trilogy.
The film got a closer to Christmas release and traditionally at this time of year films take longer to get to their total gross.
The Karen Gillan and Dwayne Johnson sequel movie falls to number 2 this week with a weekend gross of $58.7 Million from 53 countries which brings its total gross to $311.9 after 3 weeks.
