This weekends box office chart has Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker remaining at the top while The Gentlemen makes its UK debut at number 3.
Remaining at the top of the box office this weekend for a third straight weekend is the final Star Wars film directed JJ Abrams which takes £4.3 Million.
This puts the films 3 week total gross at £51.3 Million which is £17 Million behind that of Star Wars: The Last Jedi at the same stage in its box office run.
Star Wars fatigue has clearly set in for many fans, and despite the fact the film has been mostly better received than the previous film its numbers are simply not as good.
There is a small glimmer of hope that maybe the Christmas period slowed down the cinema going audience but I suspect this will end up the lowest grossing of the sequel trilogy.
The Dwayne Johnson and Jack Black starring sequel sits at number 2 this weekend with £3 Million on its 4th weekend of release.
This puts the movies total gross at £28.4 Million which is within a whisker of Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle when it was at the 4 week mark.
Director Guy Ritchie hits the box office again in less than 12 months with a London gangster basted movie which makes its debut with £3 Million.
Ritchies last movie was the Disney remake of Aladdin which made its debut with £7 Million, there was no way this was going to equal that but in comparison one of his early films with a similar genre style, Snatch from 2000, had a debut in the same ball park.
Greta Gerwig's telling of the classic novel falls to number 4 this weekend with £2.6 Million for a 2 week total gross of £9 Million.
Director Taika Waititi brings us his latest film which makes its debut at number 5 with £2.4 Million.
The Aardman animated movie as been on the box office for a 12 week run and is the longest on this weeks box office, it has taken £7 Million on that time.
29th October 2019
At the start of the weekend the big money would have been on Terminator: Dark Fate to top the UK box office this weekend but the new franchise film actually came nowhere near Joker which easily keeps the top spot for a fourth straight week.
The Todd Philips directed movie has done far better at the box office than studio Warner Bros. could ever have expected and this week spends its fourth weekend at the top as its weekend grosses show no sign of slowing too much as it takes £3.5 Million over the weekend.
The films total UK gross is now at £46.7 Million after 4 weeks of release, this puts the film at number 4 on the 2019 top grossing films list, ahead of Disney bog hitter Captain Marvel.
The movie has also broken into the top 50 all time UK movies as it slides past 2017's The Greatest Showman to become the 48th top grossing film in the UK.
The movie is also the top total grossing film on the box office this weekend.
All hopes are on this movie to save the Terminator franchise since the disastrous box office performance of Terminator Genisys.
The new movie which brings Linda Hamilton's Sarah Connor back into the mix makes its debut at number 2, the same as Genisys, the bad news is that the film, 4 years later, can only bring in £2.8 Million, less than the £3.7 Million of the previous movie.
This is worrying for the franchise as this was, once again, supposed to re-boot the series and bring it back to the glory days of The Terminator and T2, but the signs suggest it could be dead before its arrived.
Disney's high budget sequel falls to 3 this weekend with a gross of £2.1 Million, this takes the films total to £7.5 Million after 2 weeks of release.
On the Monday - Sunday weekly chart the film remains at number 2 having grossed £4.2 Million over the week.
A new animated adaptation of the spooky, Kooky family hits the box office at number 4 this weekend with a debut gross of £2.1 Million.
Falling to number 5 is the latest Aardman animated movie which takes £1 Million for the weekend and £3.3 Million in total after 2 weeks.
The movie about the posh British house is at number 15 this weekend, its has the longest run at 7 weeks and has taken £27.3 Million.
23rd October 2019
Todd Phillips movie Joker stays at the top of the Uk box office for another weekend despite challengers from 3 new comers to the chart inside the top 5 with Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil by far the top grossing of the new movies.
The Joaquin Phoenix starring film about the Batman villain makes it a third week in a row at the top of the UK box offie with a take of a fantastic £5.5 Million.
This pushes the film total gross to £40.3 Million, far greater than expectation and its the 5th top grossing movie of 2019, it will overtake Captain Marvel by next weekend.
The sequel movie from Disney starring Angelina Jolie makes its UK debut at number 3 with a fairly respectable weekend gross of £3.3 Million.
Compared to the original movie this is roughly half that films debut gross, but the UK bucks the trend of much of the world where the film seems to have bombed.
The film has got fairly bad reviews from critics which wont have helped, but the paying audiences have been more in favour, so in the coming weeks word of mouth might help.
The new film from Aardman Animation come in at number 3 this week with a gross of £1.3 Million.
Again this is a sequel movie which has not done at well as the previous movie, Shaun The Sheep Movie, and come in a little better than half as the film took just over £2 Million on its debut.
Another sequel comes in at number 4, this time is a followup 10 years in the making as the new Zombieland film comes in with a debut gross of £1.2 Million.
The audience for zombie movies has clearly not changes as the original movie came in with an almost identical debut gross.
Dreamworks animates tale falls to number 5 this week with a gross of a shade under £1 Million which puts the films total after 2 weeks at £3.2 Million.
Pixars animated sequel does the double this week as its the top total grossing movie with £66 Million and the longest total run at 18 weeks, its at number 15 this week so it could be the movies last weekend on the box office.
