The films debut was maybe a little quieter than expected but it still manages a very reasonable £5.1 Million openeing.
This is in keeping woth similar films of this genre but if you compare it to It Chapter Two, a typical overhyped hollywood movie which it knocks off this week, it is a couple of million lower.
It may be a temporary removal from the top but the Stephen King adaptation falls to number 2 this week after a single week at the top with a weekend gross of £3.1 Million.
This pushes the films total UK gross to £13.5 Million after 2 weeks of release which is £8 Million behind the first film.
Also entering the box office this week at number 3, starring Constance Wu and Jennifer Lopez the film makes quite an impressive debut with £1.3 Million.
The film is from director Lorene Scafaria and is based on a viral magazine column from New York about strippers taking their lives into their own hands.
By far Tarantino best film to date the 1960 Hollywood set film falls to 4 this week with £557,889 taking its total UK gross to £19.8 Million.
