The solo Wolverine movies have not had the best of times at either the box office or with critics, but Logan bucks that trend and gets the 78 highest debut weekend in the UK with £9.44 million.
Compared to both X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Wolverine this is far higher with those films taking £6 million and £4 million respectively, it will do better than both those films.
The Lego Batman Movie falls to number 2 after 3 weeks at the top with a £1.5 million weekend which brings the films total gross to £24.9 million and is currently the second highest grossing movie of 2017.
Also new this week are Viceroys House which is at 3 with £0.9 million and Fist Fight at 10 with £0.4 million.
La La Land is both the longest running film on the UK box office with 8 weeks so far and the highest grossing with £29.8 million, it is also the top grossing film of 2017 so far.
