After a couple of weeks of very little excitement at the Uk box office this week explodes with the release of Warner Bros. IT which dominates the chart and easily enters at the top.

IT enters the Uk box office with just over £10 million which puts in in the top 100 for UK best opening films and it is the only film on the top 10 to gross over a million.

The hype that has been put into the marketing of the film has been huge and it has paid off, and with favourable reviews, and Stephen King being a favourite in the UK the film was bound to do well.

With nothing of note coming out this weekend coming IT is bound to continue at the top at least for the next week.

American Made falls from the top to number 2 this week with a gross of just over half a million, this brings the films total gross to £4.3 million after 3 weeks of play.

Once again Despicable Me 3 is the longest running film of the chart with 11 weeks and once again Dunkirk os the highest total grossing film with an excellent £55 million, it is now the 19th highest grossing film ever in the UK.

It was a quiet weekend at the UK box office as top 15 total gross reaches a level not seen since December 2015 with Tom Cruises new film American Made takes the crown.

Grossing a little over 1 million pound the film had little to no competition for the top spot and takes nearly £900,000 less than last week number 1 film.

Ironically what American Made has done that Cruises last film didn't do is go to number 1, The Mummy released in early June could only manage a number 2 debut, although it did it with £3.3 million.

Of interest is this weeks full weekly breakdown, if the chart was based on Monday - Sunday figures this week chart would have been as follows: Dunkirk, The Hitmans Bodyguard, The Emoji Movie, Annabelle Creation, Despicable Me 3.

American Made is the only film this week to take over a million is takings, Dunkirk which is at number 2 this week is just shy and yet again nearly took the top spot.

The Hitmans Bodyguard fell from the top to number 3 this week with a weekend gross of just over £800,000 which is 4% drop from last week.

The films total gross after 2 weekend of play is now £4 million.

Also new this week are Logan Lucky directed by Steven Soderbergh at number 4 and Detroit starring John Boyega and directed by Kathryn Bigelow at number 7.
