Despite the less than favourable reviews The Predator takes the top spot on its debut weekend in the UK knocking horror film The Nun down to number 2.
The sixth film in the Predator franchise (including the 2 cross over films with the Alien franchise) takes £2.3 million on its opening weekend which is in the same ball park of the previous film Predators from 2010.
The film will most likely have most of its business in this first weekend so expect the film to drop considerably on its second weekend.
Falling to number 2 this week is The Nun which takes £1.8 million on its second weekend of release which brings the films total gross to £7.7 million.
New at number 3 is the US smash hit Crazy Rich Asians, although the film doesn't seem to be repeating the same success in the UK.
There was an expectation that the film would top the box office but with a £1.6 million opening this is only good enough for a top 3 debut.
Michael Cains new film King Of Thieves enters the chart at number 4 with a £1.5 million debut.
The star has been in some big movies over the last 20 years which have had massive debuts but for a lesser known film this is a good debut, no doubt increased by his star power.Finishing off the top 5 is former number 1 film Christopher Robin which takes £521,842 this week, this brings the films total gross after 5 weeks to £13 million.

THis brings the films total US gross to $85 million after 10 days of release, this film took a massive tumble in its second weekend but will still be a top entry in the Conjuring series of films.
