With a massive opening last weekend no studio was going to try and compete with The Fate of the Furious for a couple of week and hence the film stays at the top for a second weekend.

Dropping a considerable 60% from last week the Fast and Furious 8 (to give it the UK name) takes $38 million on its second weekend of release.

This brings the films total to a fantastic $163.6 million in the US and it keeps it on tract to s very similar gross to the previous films.

Highest new film of the week is Disney’s wild life documentary Born in Chine, about pandas, which is released to coincide with the global Earth Day celebration.

The House of Mouse has released similar wildlife documentaries each year around this time for the last few years and this years entry takes just over $5 million on its opening.

Also new this week is Unforgettable at number 7 with $4.8 million and The promise which debuts at number 9 with $4 million.

Beauty and the Beast is once again the top total grossing movie this week with $472 million and with 6 weeks on the chart is also the longest running film.
