In what became fantastic weekend gross Fast and Furious 7 makes it's debut at the top of the UK box office with ease, although last weeks top film still does decent numbers.

Furious 7 took an excellent £12.7 million over the Easter weekend and in the process not only became the top film in the motoring franchise but is also the 31st highest film debut in the UK.

Having a debut similar to that of a Hunger games film or Inbetweener Movie will see the film gross over £30 million in the UK, and in comparison it's near the debut of Fifty Shades of Grey which has so far made £34 million.

Last weeks top film, Cinderella, takes nearly £3 million for the weekend placing at 2 with it's total UK gross now at just over £10 million.

Also new this week are The Water Diviner at 7 and While We're Young at number 8.

Also making an appearance due to screening by the BFI is the 1982 Ridley Scott sci-fi classic Blade Runner which has taken £267,452 over the weekend.
