After a very good 4 weeks at the top of the Uk box office Black Panther givers up this week and falls down to number 2 leaving Peter Rabbit and Tomb Raider to fight it out.
The Will Gluck directed Peter Rabbit starring the voice of James Cordon easily made it to the top in the end with a weekend gross of £7 million.
Also making its debut is Alicia Vikander in the reboot of Tomb Raider which make a decent weekend gross of £3 million.
In comparison the Angelina Jolie first outing from 2001 took £3.8 million on its debut, with inflation the reboot is a bit of a let down.
Black Panther may have fallen to number 3 this week but a £1.8 million 5th weekend takes the film total UK gross to £42 million, its global gross is now nearly $1.2 billion.
The Greatest Showman continues to do really well and a 12 weekend gross of just over £1 million brings the films total gross to nearly £39 million.
Red Sparrow finished off the top 5 this week.
Despite a good attempt by Tomb Raider to derail Black Panther from the top of the US box office the Marvel mega smash manages a fifth weekend at the top.
No film in the US has spent this long at the top since Avatar in 2009 so this is kind of a big deal.
This weekend Panther takes $27 million which takes its total US gross to $605 million.
Coming in at number 2 this week, and the highest new film, is Tomb Raider, the new reboot following on from the rebooted games from a few years back.
Despite mainly positive reviews the film still only manages to gross half that of the Angelina Jolie movie from 2001.
The Alice Vikander version of the video game heroin takes $23.5 million on its opening weekend.
Faith based movie I Can Only Imagine is new at 3 and gets the highest per screen average on the charts and has far outstripped expectation, the film takes $17 million for the weekend.
Finishing off the top 5 is A Wrinkle in time at number 4 and sinking fast and Love, Simon which is new at number 5 this weekend.
We only have to wait until 16th March to find out what the reboot of Tomb Raider is like, and judging from the trailers for fans of the games its looking good.
The BBFC have given the film a 12A certificate for moderate violence, threat, injury detail.

Out with the old, in with the new, its happened about 10 years after the game series got it but Tomb raider gets a much needed reboot.
Starring Alicia Vikander the film gets its first trailer today, check it out below.
And is it just me or does this look like a better version of the Jumanji reboot due Christmas 2017?
Tomb Raider is due march 2018.
No Angelina Jolie this time as the Tomb Raider franchise reboot gets its first poster.
Where as the first two movies from 2001/2003 had an air of old Lara Croft about them, this definitely has a Square Enix feel.
To explain Core Design developed the games until 2003 when Square Enix took over development.
The games reboot had a very different look and feel with a younger looking Lara, the new film starring Alicia Vikander has that, check out the poster below.
