Green Book

Winning the Best Film Oscar and Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Mahershala Ali has pushed this film back to number 5 with a weekend take of £737,659 taking its total gross to £7.4 million.

The Aftermath

Keira Knightley's new film makes its debut at 6 this week with an opening gross of £589,965.

The Favourite
