Marvel continue their streak of number 1 films this week with Ant-Man And The Wasp taking over at the top of the UK box office on its debut week of release.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

The sequel movie starring Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly took nearly £5 million on its debut weekend which is in the same ball park as the original movie which took just over £4 million on its debut.

Holding firm at number 2 this week is Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again which made a challenge for the top but fell just shy with £4.1 million, this brings the films total gross to £39.3 million after just 3 weeks.

The sequel is running ahead of the originals gross but that film had good longevity, time will tell if this film has the same staying power.

Mission:Impossible Fallout leap frogs Mamma Mia! To number 3 this week after its number 1 debut, the film takes a very good £2.4 million second weekend to bring the films total UK gross to £13.3 million.

The Tom Cruise franchise movie is running a predictable course laid out by the series and could well end up with a similar total gross.

Incredibles 2 is at number 4 this week with £2.3 million for a total gross of £39 million, this is far ahead of the original film but there is a 14 year gap with ticket price increases.

If you compare ticket sales then both films are running at very similar numbers to each other with about 4 million sales each.

Finishing off the top 5 is Hotel Transylvania 3 Summer Vacation which takes £1.4 million for a £7.7 million total after 2 weeks of release.

Highest total grossing movie of the week is Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom with just over £40 million after 9 weeks of release.
