This week making its debut at the top of the UK box office is the critically acclaimed Wolverine movie Logan starring Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart.
The solo Wolverine movies have not had the best of times at either the box office or with critics, but Logan bucks that trend and gets the 78 highest debut weekend in the UK with £9.44 million.
Compared to both X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Wolverine this is far higher with those films taking £6 million and £4 million respectively, it will do better than both those films.
The Lego Batman Movie falls to number 2 after 3 weeks at the top with a £1.5 million weekend which brings the films total gross to £24.9 million and is currently the second highest grossing movie of 2017.
Also new this week are Viceroys House which is at 3 with £0.9 million and Fist Fight at 10 with £0.4 million.
La La Land is both the longest running film on the UK box office with 8 weeks so far and the highest grossing with £29.8 million, it is also the top grossing film of 2017 so far.

Twenty five years ago

This third and reported last of the Wolverine stand alone movies makes its US box office debut at the top this weekend with a fantastic $85 million.
The Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart starring film has got excellent reviews across the board for its daring move away from the traditional super hero movie and has benefited in the process.
For an R rated movie it is the fourth highest opening in the US ever and most likely will go on to be the highest grossing stand alone Wolverine movie.
Falling down to 2 this week, but still holing its own is last week top film Get Out which takes $26.1 on its second weekend of release.
The little known horror film has now taken $76 million after 10 days of release in the US.
Also new this week is The Shack which is at 3 with $16 million and Before I Fall which is at 5 with $5 million.
Longest running film on the US box office is La La Land which has now been around for 13 weeks and the highest total grossing is Hidden Figures with $158 million.
Mention must go to Moonlight which after the Oscar fiasco with La La Land this week goes national and increases its gross by 260%, this week it is at 12 with $2.5 million.
On the Uk box office this week we have the latest X-Men film taking over at the top on its debut week of release ending Captain America's 3 week run.
£7.3 million was enough to see X-Men Apocalypse reach the top of the chart, this is fairly average for an X-Men movie although it is lower than the previous entry X-Men Days of Future Past.
Interesingly the Wolverine movies have fared the same for debut grosses meaning that the average gross of a X-Men universe movie is in the £6 million region.
Last weeks top film Captain America: Civil War falls from the top quite hard to number 4 with a weekend take of £1.3 million bringing its total to £34 million.
Highest total Grossing movie on the box office this week is The Jungle Book at number 3 with £41 million.

At the UK box office over the weekend there was no doubt which film was going to be the biggest, and in the process a new franchise is born in the superhero stable.
The Marvel/Disney stable bring another franchise to the big screen in the shape of Guardians of the Galaxy, and unlike their Avengers counterparts these are a bunch of misfits.
Guardians took a very respectable £6.3 million to make number 1, comparing Guardians to Avenger (called Avengers Assemble in the UK) that film released in 2012 had a £15.7 million opening, nearly double that of Guardians.
Although Avengers was not a sequel as such it did have a number of high grossing companion films before it including Iron Man and Thor.
Last weeks top film, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, falls a single place to 2 this week after 3 weeks of release, its total gross is £23.4 million.
Also worth a mention this week; Secret Cinema are showing a months worth of Back to the Future screening in surroundings based on the films Hill Valley, this took the nearly 30 year old film back to number 7 this week.
Also new is
The Nut Job at 6
This time last year The Smurfs 2 hit the top of the box office on it's debut knocking The Wolverine to number 4.
Five years ago Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince was still at the top keeping the highest new entry at 2, G-Force.
Ten years ago King Arthur took the top spot on it's debut which left Spider-Man 2 to tumble to second place.
Fifteen years ago Mike Myers stared in Austin Powers The Spy Who Shagged Me which knocked Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace into second place.
Twenty years ago in the month of August Jim Carey was on a wave after Ace Ventura and The Mask was sitting as the top film of the month.
Twenty Five years ago Lethal Weapon 2 was the biggest film of August.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes holds off the challenge of Hercules, The Purge Anarchy and Earth to Echo to keep the top spot at the UK box office for another week.
Now in it's second weekend of release Dawn of the Apes easily hangs on to the top spot with a weekend take of £3.7 million, this brings it's total gross to £17 million after 10 days of release.
Highest new film of the week is Dwayne Johnson in a retelling of Hercules, an all out action film rather than historical retelling of the Greek myth it's directed by Brett Ratner.
Hercules took a gross of £1.5 million on it's opening weekend, it has a long was to go to even be one of Johnson's best films as he's been part of the Fast and Furious series and The Mummy series.
Likewise Brett Ratner has been part of the X-Men series and directed the 2 Rush Hour movies, and also directed a Hannibal Lector film, all high grossing franchises.
Hercules could sink quite fast especially with some of the new releases coming in the next few weeks which will be ultimately bigger box office hits.
There are plenty of other new releases this week in the form of
The Purge Anarchy at 3
Earth to Echo at 6
The House of Magic at 10
This time last year new at the top was The Wolverine based on the X-Men universe which topped on it's debut knocking Monsters University into 2nd.
