A £2.9 million weekend is good enough to keep Deadpool at the top of the UK box office making it 3 weeks in a row now.

The big Marvel hit has now taken an incredible £31.1 million in the UK and is set to become one of Fox's biggest entries in their Marvel superhero cannon.

Highest new film of the week is Grimsby which enters the chart at number 2, maybe a little disappointing with all the press but the Sasha Baron Cohen film takes £1.9 million for the weekend.

For Cohen this is the lowest of all his film, Borat (or to give it a full title - Borat: Cultural Learnings of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan) is his highest with over £6 million on its debut.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is still holding on in their and is one again the highest total grossing film of the week, not with £122.6 million.
