Despite there being 7 new releases hitting the top 15 films this week the top five films in the UK remain unchanged from last week with Suicide Squad remaining at the top.
On its second weekend of release the DC comics anti-hero picture took £4.2 million, down just over 66% from the previous weekend.
The film has now taken £22 million during its 10 days of release and is not that far behind stable mate Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice.
With the rest of the top 4 remaining fairly static the highest new film of the week is Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates starring Zak Efron and Anna Kendrick.
The comedy film took just over a million pound on its debut weekend in the UK, but the suspicion is it will fall fast in the coming weeks ready for a home video release.
Big suprise of the week is the Disney remake of Petes Dragon landing at number 6 with £844,090, one of the Mouse Houses smallest hits in a while.
Other new films this week are Newrve at number 7, The Shallows at number 8, Mohenjo Daro at number 11, Rustom at number 12 and finally Wiener Dog at number 14.
Longest running film this week and highest total gross is The Secret Life of Pets, 8 weeks on the chart and £33 million.

10th August 2016
There was just one major release this week there which basically means there was inevitably going to be a new film making its debut at the top, and as predicted Warner Bros. Suicide Squad does just that.
Continuing the DC Cinematic Universe that was started in Man of Steel and Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice this film does something the Marvel/Disney have not yet dared, put the bad guys front and centre.
And audiences have lapped this up with Suicide Squad topping the UK box office with an excellent £11.2 million, nearly as big as the much more anticipated Batman V Superman from March.
That superhero movie sank quickly at the box office so we'll be watching things closely to see if it does similar.
Worth noting is that if the chart listing was taken over the whole week then Finding Dory would sit at the top with £12 million.
Highest total grossing on this weeks top 10 is The Secret Life of Pets which has now grossed over £32 million, while longest stay on the box office is The Angry Birds Movie with 11 weeks.

17th August 2015
Mission:Impossible Rogue Nation stays the top film across the globe for another week although in comparison it is released in 63 countries whereas Straight Outta Compton shows strong figures from America alone.
Rogue Nation takes $63 million globally this week and is starting to slow down, it's global take is now $373.4 which should put it ahead of part 3 but it will struggle to beat the others.
Compton makes an impressive debut at number 2 with $56 million from America alone, it gets released across the globe in the coming weeks but its home territory is where the audience is.
The Man From U.N.C.L.E. makes it's debut this week at number 3 from 24 countries with $25.5 million, it will be seen as a disappointment.
