This week the animated series of Despicable Me in its third incarnation, imaginatively titled Despicable me 3, removed Transformers from the top after just a week.
Taking a decent £11 million from the weekend the third film, or fourth if you count Minions, in the series comes in under the second film but way above the first.
Worth a note last years Minions debuted with almost the exact same gross as this so the series is on a stable keel at the moment.
Transformers: The Last Knight falls down to number 3 this week with a weekend gross of £1.06 million bringing the films total gross to £8 million.
Transformers leap frogs over Baby Driver which makes its debut at number 2 this week, the much hyped film makes £3.6 million on its debut.
Directed by Edgar Write Baby Driver does better than nearly all other Write directed movies other than Hot Fuzz which was his follow up movie to the excellent Shaun of The Dead and was much hyped as well.
Also new this week is All Eyez On Me which us new at 4 with just under a million pound and quite disappointingly so The House which is new at 6 with Half a million pound.
The Boss Baby is this week the longest running film on the box office with 13 weeks and the highest total grossing with £28.5 million.
