In what is a quiet week compared to recent weeks Jack Black takes his latest film Goosebumps to the top of the UK box office beating Dads Army in the process.

The children's fantasy film enters at the top of the box office on its debut with £2.7 million pound which is low for both star Jack Black and director Rob Letterman.

Black has his next film Kung Fu Panda 3 about to be released in the UK which will most likely debut much higher and be a bigger hit.

British favourite Dads Army gets a big screen remake this week and enters the box office at number 2 with just over £2 million.

The World War 2 film starring Toby Jones and Catherine Zeta Jones, as well as a whole host of British talent, has maybe performed below expectations but will most likely hang around for a fair few weeks.

Last week top film, The Revenant, fall to number 3 this week after 3 weeks at the top, but with Oscar just round the corner there could be a resurgent later in February.

Highest total grossing film on the box office is Star Wars: The Force Awakens which has now taken an incredible $120 million in the UK and is at number 6 this week.
