The whole of the top 5 was actually very close and all took over £2 million, not something you see that often, Darkest Hour took £2.6 million to brings its total to £15 million.
Falling to number 2 this week is Coco after a week at number 2, a £2.3 million weekend brings the total to £8 million.
Highest new entry of the week comes in at number 3 in the shape of threequel Maze Runner The Death Cure which takes £2.2 million over the weekend.
This is a very similar gross to both the other 2 films in the series and so should end up around the £8 million mark.
Rounding out the top 5 is The Greatest Showman which is doing great business and the biggest shock of the week Early Man which makes its debut at 5.
A new film from Aardman and directed by the great Nick Park should have challenged for the top spot, but a close top 5 gives it a £2 Million debut.
Worth noting, if the chart were counted on a weeks Monday - Sunday bases it would have been quite different, Darkest Hour would still have been the top film but The Greatest Showman would have been second The Post third with Coco fourth and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri fifth.
