As with the previous 2 week Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the top film across the UK with a weekend gross, slight above the previous week, of £10 million.

The incredible gross of The Force Awakens has now reached £97 million and is the second highest grossing film of all time in the UK sandwiched between 2 Bond films.

At the current rate of ticket sales the seventh Star Wars will become the biggest grossing film of all time in the UK by next weekend beating the £102.8 million of Skyfall.

Elsewhere there are still new films entering the box office and this week the Jennifer Lawrence/Robert De Niro double header Joy is the top new film.

Entering at number 3 the debut weekend gross of the movie is a little over £1.5 million.

Also new on this weeks box office top 10 is Eddie Raymond's new film The Danish Girl at 4 with £1.3 million.

The Force Awakens is understandably the highest total grossing film on the box office while Spectre is the longest running film on the charts clocking up 10 weeks so far.

Historical Charts - A year ago - The Theory of Everything saw the new year in with a debut at the top knocking The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies down to number 2.

Five years ago - Gullivers Travels was the first number 1 of the new making its debut there knocking Little Fockers down to 2.

Ten years ago - The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe stayed at the top for a second week while Cheaper by The Dozen 2 was the highest new film at 3.

Fifteen years ago - Unbreakable was the top new film of the week at number 1 knocking Meet The PArents down to number 2.

Twenty years ago - Ace Ventura When Nature Calls made its debut at number one leaving Babe to fall down to number 2.

You would think there isn't much to talk about this week other than the amazing debut of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but as it happens there were a couple of, albeit much smaller, new releases.

First of all with the dust settling on Star Wars tis time to reflect on its debut, a massive first day and first weekend takes it to the top of the UK box office with £34 million, not the highest, that still is with Spectre but that had a 7 day opening as opposed to this 4 day opening.

The Force Awakens did have a better Friday - Sunday opening though, although its not like for like as these event films are generally front loaded.

The Force Awakens should go on to challenge Skyfall as the top film ever in the UK and could still become the highest grossing film of 2015 should it continue on current track.

Coming in new at 2 is Sisters, good reviews have increased the popularity of the film and the debut of £1.2 million is non too shabby considering it came up against such a massive tour de force.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 falls from number 1 after 4 week in that position to number 5 with £0.5 million and a total UK gross of £26.6 million.

Highest total grossing film on the box office this week is Spectre, at number 6 this week, with £92.7 million, it will not overtake Skyfall as the top film in the UK now.

Historical charts

A year ago - The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies stayed at the top of the box office for another week with Night At The Museum Secret of The Tomb the highest new film at 3.

Five years ago - TRON Legacy debuted on the chart at number 1 knocking The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of The Dawn Treader down to number 2 after a single week.

Ten years ago - King Kong was the top new film making its debut at the top while The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe fell to number 2.

UK Box Office Report Weekend 11th December 2015: Four at the top for Mockingjay, Grandma highest new film at 19! Retaining its position at the top of the UK box office this week is The Hinger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 which has now spent 4 weeks as the number 1 film.

Mockingjay this week grosses £1.2 million to give it a total gross of £25.4 million, the second lowest of The Hunger Games films after the first movie.

There were no new releases this week on the box office, Grandma was the closest thing to a new entry which came in at number 19 from 92 screens and a £35,000 opening gross.

By The Sea starring and Directed by Angelina Jolie was new at number 23 and took £24,000 from its debut.

Spectre was yet again the highest total grossing film on the chart this week, still at number 3 and now taken £92 million after 7 weeks.

Point to note is the top 5 this week was the same as the top 5 last week.

Historical charts

A year ago - The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies was the new film at the top of the box office knocking Paddington down to 2.

Five years ago - The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of The Dawn Treader made its debut at the top knocking Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 1 down to number 2.

Ten years ago - The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe was the top film in the country knocking Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire down to number 2 - (something looks familiar there)

Fifteen years ago - How The Grinch Stole Christmas made it 2 weeks at the top while 102 Dalmatians was the highest new film at number 3.

Twenty years ago - The Santa Clause was the top new film of the week knocking Goldeneye down to number 2.

We still have just under 3 months to go before we reach the end of the year but already the top 6 movies of 2015 have made more than 2014's top movie.

Here is the comparison of 2014's top 6 and 2015's top 6, so far: -

    2014 -
  1. The Lego Movie £34,133,383
  2. Dawn of The Planet of The Apes £33,764,545
  3. The Inbetweeners 2 £33,387,932
  4. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 £29,517,393
  5. The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies £28,759,574
  6. Guardians of The Galaxy £28,536,999
    2015 -
  1. Jurassic World £63,674,773
  2. Avengers Age of Ultron £48,334,257
  3. Minions £46,735,377
  4. Fast and Furious 7 £38,385,021
  5. Inside Out £38,375,834
  6. Fifty Shades of Grey £34,662,255
With still just under 3 month of the year to go we could see the full top 10 of 2015 beating 2014's top film.

The Martian is still doing very well at the UK box office and could reach 2014's The Lego Movies figure, Spectre has just been released and will give 2015's Jurassic World a run for its money.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 is released in a couple of weeks and stands a good chance of making over £35 million.

As if leaving the best to last we have of course Disney/Lucasfilms will release Star Wars: The Force Awakens on December 18th.

An interesting scenario with this film, being released so late in the year much of its gross will come in 2016, but I fully expect it to break various records during its first couple of weeks and it will make over £35 million before the end of the year.

Check back each week to see how these and other new films perform at the UK box office.

After 3 weeks of release The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies is still the top selling video film in the UK.

Highest new film of the week is down at 3 in the shape of Birdman or to give it the full title Birdman Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance).

Birdman was release in UK cinemas on 2nd January of this year and was a big Oscar hopeful although it only debuted at number 7 with £1.5 million which was its highest position.

A 6 week stay on the UK box office saw the film take a total gross of £'5.6 million, in the US it took $42 million.

There are 2 other new film on the video chart this week are Unbroken at 4 and Automata at 8.
