Hitting the top on its debut weekend the movie stars Lady Gaga and Adam Driver in this true life drama brought to us by maverick director Ridley Scott.
The movie tops the box office with a debut gross of £2.4 Million, the lowest debut since Free Guy back in August 2021.
Although compared to director Ridley Scotts last movie, which also starred Adam Drive, The Last Duel it is far higher as that movie surprisingly underperformed.
The movie has a long way to go in order to beat Lady Gaga's last movie which was the 2018 A Star is Born which took over £30 Million at the UK box office.
Falling to number 2 after a single week at the top is the Ghostbusters sequel which takes just over £2 Million on its second weekend of release, a 51% drop over its debut gross.
This puts the movies total at £7.5 Million which puts it on almost the same footing at the 2016 re-boot, if maybe a little higher.
Disney bring their latest animated feature to the big screen only, and unlike the rest of the world where it is the top movie it lands on the UK box office at number 3.

Their previous movie to that was Frozen II which made its debut in 2019 with over £15 Million, but this is a new IP and that has a massive built in audience, in all this is not great for a Disney labeled animation.
Disney again, this time with their Marvel studios as the Chloe Zhao directed feature falls to number 4 with £586,304, a 52% drop over last weekend.
This gives the movie a total UK gross of £13.8 Million and it is the 10th top movie of 2021.
The 25th James Bond movie falls to number 5 this weekend with £492,635, a 48% drop over last week which isn't bad for a movie which is 9 weeks on the box office.
The film has now taken £95.5 Million at the UK box office and it takes the honor this week of slipping up to number 3 on the list of all UK time movies having Jumped over Spectre this week.
To go any higher it needs to break the £100 Million mark, a feat only achieved by 2 movies on the UK, Skyfall and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but its probably a feat too far for this movie.
