As expected the Disney movie remake of their classic animated tale hits the top in big style with a debut weekend of £16.6 Million.
The film took an incredibly 68% of the top 15 gross.
This isn't too far behind the live remake of Beauty And The Beast, which is so far the top grossing of this trend, which took £19.7 Million in 2017.
That film went on to gross £72.4 Million, so a £50 Million+ total is not out of the question.
The Disney Pixar fourquel takes £2.7 Million on its 5th weekend of release as it holds firm at number 2 on the box office.
The films UK total now stands at a very respectable £47.2 Million.
The post Avengers: Endgame movie falls from the top to number 3 this week with a gross of £2.3 Million pushing the films total to £27.2 Million after 3 weeks.
The film is now the 5th highest grossing film of 2019, and interestingly the whole top 5 of the year are Disney properties.
Danny Boyle and Richard Curtis film based on the music of The Beatles sits at number 4 this week with a weekend gross of £774 Thousand pushing its total to £9.9 Million after 4 weeks of release.
The Conjuring Universe movie falls to number 5 on its 2nd weekend taking £770 Thousand for a £4 Million total.
