The second weekend of Avengers: Endgame and the film is still pulling in audiences and takes a lion share of the box office takings for the weekend, Long Shot comes in second but takes less than a £1 million on its debut.
The Marvel mega smash manages to pull in a mammoth £14.3 million at the UK box office on its second weekend of release, and although massive is just under the second weekend of Skyfall from 2012 which took £16.1 million.
With 2 massive weekends the film should start to slow next week, although Marvel/Disney have not slowed on the marketing and repeat visits could happen in the coming weeks.
The film will take over £100 million at the UK box office potentially beating Skyfall, but Star Wars: The Force Awakens £123 million might be a big ask.
Still the film has taken £69.3 million so far and will end up as the top film of 2019, Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker might take more but with a release date of December 19th the total gross will be split between 2 different years (2019 and 2020).
Avengers: Endgame was the only film to take over a million pound at the UK box office this week but the new film from director Jonathan Levine starring Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen makes its debut at number 2.
The romantic comedy takes £856,333 on its debut weekend.
Coming in at number 3 this week is the latest film from The Conjuring universe which enters the box office with a £609,555, one of the lowest of the horror franchise.
The film is Directed by Michael Chaves and stars Linda Cardellini who also appears in Avengers: Endgame and Roman Christou.
The bio-pic of The Lord Of The Rings series of books didn't go down too well with critics and enters the box office at number 4 this week with £550,348.
Films based on our pets have done well in recent year and this film directed by Gail Mancuso enters the box offie at 5 with a half million pound opening.
The Marvel predecessor to Endgame is at 9 this week and has spent 9 weeks on the box office with a total gross of £39.2 million.

Disney release their big holiday animation Ralph Breaks The Internet over the American Thanksgiving weekend and along with Creed II also making its debut and strong holdovers it makes for a record weekly take with the top 10 grossing over $200 million.
The latest Disney movie had plenty of hype and hence opens at the top of the US box office with a $55 million 3 day weekend and an $85 million 5 day weekend which includes the Wednesday and Thursday of Thanksgiving
This means that the new Ralph film is running $15 million ahead of its 2012 predecessor over the same period and should end up grossing far more in the long run.
The follow up to Creed from 2015 and spiritual follow up to Rocky IV from 1986 the Micheal B. Jordan starring movie opens at number 2 with a $35 million opening 3 days and a $55 million 5 day Thanksgiving.
This is far higher than the original movies opening by $14 million.
The Grinch drops to number 3 this week after 3 weeks of release with a $30 million weekend gross, the film now has a total US gross of $180.5 million.
After opening big last weekend the new Fantastic Beasts film runs into trouble this week and falls hard to number 4 with a weekend gross of just $29.6 million which brings the films 10 gross to a relatively poor $117 million.
One film which has done better than expected and this week sits at number 5 is the Queen bio-pic which this week takes $13 million for a $152 million total US gross.
One film that has not done too well on its debut weekend is the new Robin Hood movie starring Taron Egerton which limps onto the box office chart at number 7 with a poor $9.1 million gross.

This week marks a bit of a mile stone in film global grosses, Despicable Me 3 goes over $1 billion, the first of the series to do so, this means now the top 30 top global grossing movies have all grossed over $1 Billion.
The first movie to do so was Titanic back in 1998 and was the only film to do so for a long time, that film had another bite of the cherry in 2012 and its gross is now over $2 billion.
The next film to do it was The Lord of The Rings: The Return of The King in 2003, since then we have had at least one film a year do the fate.
The oldest film to go over $1 Billion is Jurassic Park from 1993, but again that had another go in 2011 which pushed it over the mark, Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace similarly did the same.
To date only 3 film have gone to $2 Billion, Avatar (the top grossing movie of all time), Titanic and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The next milestone will be the top 50 all over a billion, which at the current rate will be some time in 2020/21, and then of course we look forward to the next Star Wars film going over the $2 Billion mark!.
