We're fast approaching the Christmas period and despite it still only being early in December the UK public are clearly in the mood as they take The Grinch to the top of the box office on its debut weekend.

Widows

The Grinch

Taking the box office on its debut weekend with a gross of £5.09 million the Dr Seuss favourite only just beat out last weeks top film Bohemian Rhapsody

The last time The Grinch appeared on the box office was back in 2000 in the shape of Jim Carey in a live action version directed by Ron Howard which took £3 million on its debut weekend which is about £5.2 million when adjusted for inflation.

Both films have hence sold in the same ball park as far as tickets are concerned, time will tell is this new animated version will out gross the 2000 film.

Bohemian Rhapsody

After a very successful couple of weeks at the top of the box office the Queen bio-pic falls to number 2 with a weekend gross of £4.5 million, not far behind The Grinch.

This boosts the films total Uk gross to £28.9 million and its the 10th best film of the year to date.

Widows

Acclaimed director Steve McQueen brings his latest movie which lands at 3 on its debut weekend with a gross of £2.4 million.

The film starring Viola Davis and Liam Neeson is getting a lot of positive buzz and Oscar talk to expect it to hang around until the new year and awards season.

A Star Is Born

The Bradley Cooper film is starting to fall down the chart after a very successful run and this week is at 4 with £1.2 million boosing its total to £25.4 million.

The Nutcracker And The Four Realms

Finishing off the top 5 this week is last weeks highest new film which falls hard in its second weekend, the Diney film takes £1.1 million for a £3.14 million total.
