It was a relatively quiet weekend at UK cinemas and the Blade runner sequel took £1.8 million to go back on top, nearly 50% down on last weekend.
This means the film has now managed £12.7 million on its UK run, its hard to put this in context of the original movie which 3 weeks in had made £0.8 million.
If take inflated ticket prices into play then the original would have made £4.3 million at this stage so the sequel is over £10 million ahead.
Highest new film of the week, and despite the appalling reviews, is Geostorm starring Gerard Butler, which enters at number 2 with £1.6 million.
The weather disaster movie is a typical summer blockbuster movie so being released so late in the year probably meant the studio had little faith in the film.
Last weeks top film, The Lego Ninjago Movie, falls to number 3 this week with £1.3 million and a total gross so far of £5.5 million.
We have a change of longest running and top total grossing film this week with IT being around for 7 weeks and grossed a total of £32 million.
