£7.3 million was enough to see X-Men Apocalypse reach the top of the chart, this is fairly average for an X-Men movie although it is lower than the previous entry X-Men Days of Future Past.
Interesingly the Wolverine movies have fared the same for debut grosses meaning that the average gross of a X-Men universe movie is in the £6 million region.
Last weeks top film Captain America: Civil War falls from the top quite hard to number 4 with a weekend take of £1.3 million bringing its total to £34 million.
Highest total Grossing movie on the box office this week is The Jungle Book at number 3 with £41 million.
