Last Friday saw the release of the fifth in the long running Pirates of The Caribbean series, and after some high grossing debuts number 5 comes in with a lower gross and less fan fare.
The film still managed a number one debut with its £5 million weekend gross but its the lowest opening weekend sing the original film Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of The Black Pearl.
The series is clearly loosing steam and after 5 films of questionable quality the tiring series needs to retire, going from an over £10 million debut of On Stranger Tides to £5 million for the latest is a warning sign to Disney.
Falling hard from number 1 this week, and fast becoming the flop of the summer is King Arthur Legend of The Sword which this week sits at number 5.
A second weekend take of just under £600 thousand is a massive 75% drop from last week, the total after 2 weeks is nearly £4 million.
Also new this week is Diary of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul at number 2, the series of films is a favourite with children and takes nearly £1.5 million on its debut.
The Red Turtle also makes its debut at number 9 with £91,000 on its opening weekend of release, although it is on a limited run.
Highest total grossing film and longest run on the box office is Beauty and The Beast, and incredible 11 week run has the film grossing just over £71 million pound.

Directed by Guy Ritchie King Arthur Legend of the Sword makes its UK debut at the top of the box office, but its an unconvincing start to its box office run.
Taking £2.5 million from the weekend the film which had a massive budget and is set to start a new series of films was expected to smash its way into the box office from studio Warner Bros.
For the director this is below the debut of his top grossing films the Sherlock Holmes movies starring Robert Downey Jnr. which both debuted in the £3 million mark.
Falling into second place is Alien: Covenant which only just missed out on spending a second week at the top with a weekend gross of £2.1 million.
This brings the films total gross to £10 million, Prometheus at this point in its run was doing very similar business so expect this to end its run with a similar £20 million+.
Also new this week is Snatched starring Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn at number 4 with a debut of £842,000 and Colossal starring Anne Hathaway at number 9 with £150,000.

Marvel are a power house not to be messed with, although this weekend Warner Bros. though it would have a go and failed miserably and King Arthur Legend of The Sword couldn’t tough Guardians of The Galaxy at the global box office.
With $115.2 million from 57 countries this week Guardians easily retains its position as top film, this gross means that the film has gone past the half billion mark and has now taken $630.5 million after 3 weeks.
King Arthur did manage second place, although only just, with $43.8 million from 52 countries, but considering the amount of hype the film has had Warner would have been hoping for far more.
Released in 34 countries Alien Covenant marks its debut at number 3, the hotly anticipated film from Ridley Scott didn't get a US release but did make a show in much of Europe.
Nearly beating King Arthur the film takes $42 million for the week despite getting for less than favourable reviews from critics, its US release is this coming weekend which will be a big test.
There is a bit of a battle going on between Fast and Furious 8 and Beauty and The Beast for top film of the spring season and at the moment Beast is winning with $1.2 Billion total gross.
It was a weekend when everyone thought the big budget film King Arthur Legend of The Sword was going to dominate, Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 still took the crown and comedy Snatched come in highest on Mothers Day weekend.
Its the second weekend of release for Chris Pratt and director James Gunn and Guardians easily holds on to the top spot with a massive $63 million, 57% drop from last weeks debut.
This brings the films total gross from 10 day in cinemas to $246.1 million, its inline with other big Marvel films and well ahead if the first Guardians film.
Highest new film honour goes to Snatched starring Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn about a mother and daughter who get kidnapped in a foreign country, good timing to release on Mothers Day.
The film makes its debut in second place with a weekend gross of $17.5 million, although with mediocre reviews we could see this slip away quickly.
Directed by Guy Ritchie and with a massive $200 million+ budget the studio were hoping for a mega hit on their hands, but King Arthur Legend of The Sword has limed into US cinema in third with $14.7 million.
Beauty and the Beast is once again the longest running film on the US box office, 9 weeks now, and its the highest total grossing movie with nearly half a billion pound in takings.
