Following on from its stablemate The Lego Movie from 3 years ago The Lego Batman Movie enters the UK box office at the top beating out Fifty Shades Darker in the process.

The Lego Movie opened this same weekend in 2014 to just over £8 million and The Lego Batman Movie has almost done exactly the same with opening to just under £8 million.

The Lego Movie went on to be the top grossing movie of 2014 with £37 million, time will tell with The Lego Batman Movie, this are looking good but we have a number of big franchise movies coming this year which could get in its way.

Fifty Shades of Grey opened in 2015 to £13.5 million over a valentines weekend, this week Fifty Shades Darker opens to £7 million at number 2, but not a valentines weekend, next week will be a tell time for the movie.

Sing falls down to number 3 this week with £2.3 million which brings the films total gross in the UK to £18 million.

Highest total grossing movie on the box office this week is La La Land which has now taken £26.4 million while the longest running film is Trolls which re-enters the chart and spends its 14th week in total.
