Following suit with the rest of the globe The Nun tops the Uk box office this weekend and as part of the Conjuring series of films this is the second highest debut of the series.
The Nun doesn't quite reach debut of The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Case which took £4.6 on its debut but the £4 million opening isn't that far away.
With Halloween 6 weeks away the film could stick around for a few weeks but horror films like this do have a habit of upfront box office success, the bad reviews wont help much either!
Christopher Robin surrenders the top spot after 3 weeks at the top with a weekend gross of nearly £900,000 which brings the films total gross to £12 million after 4 weeks.
After a slow start to its box office run BlackKKlansman stays at number 3 this week with just under £800,000, this brings the films total gross after 3 weeks to £4.5 million making one of director Spike Lee's top films in the UK.
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again has started to slow down now and this week falls to 4 with just over £700,000.
This brings the films total gross to £63.2 million and although a fantastic total gross for a sequel film is will now struggle to beat the total gross of the original Mamma Mia! and will likely not beat Avengers Infinity War as the top film of the year (so far).
Finally in the top 5 is The Meg which has far outstripped expectation and this weeks take just over £600,00 for a total of £15 million.
