UK Box Office Results Weekending 21st February 2016: Deadpools holds on with How To Be Single highest new film

Robert Hyde

How To Be Single
Deadpool makes it 2 weeks at the top of the UK box office this week with yet another decent weekend gross.

£5.6 million is enough to keep it at the top of the tree which brings its total UK gross to £25 million after 10 days in cinemas.

Repeating last weeks top 2 Alving and the Chipmunks The Road Chip hangs on in the runner up spot for a second week.

Highest new film of the week is the female let comedy How To Be Single staring Dakota Johnson and Rebel Wilson.

The valentines day/date movie has an appeal for men but has a strong female appeal in direct competition to Deadpool, although that film does have a strong female appeal.

How To Be Single makes 3rd place on its debut with a fairly solid £1.8 million, although no-where near either leads last film of Fifty Shades of Grey and Pitch Perfect 2.

The only other new film on the top 10 is Triple 9 at number 6.

Highest total grossing film on the box office is still Star Wars: The Force Awakens which is at number 9 this week and has now taken £122 million.
