As with the previous 2 week Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the top film across the UK with a weekend gross, slight above the previous week, of £10 million.
The incredible gross of The Force Awakens has now reached £97 million and is the second highest grossing film of all time in the UK sandwiched between 2 Bond films.
At the current rate of ticket sales the seventh Star Wars will become the biggest grossing film of all time in the UK by next weekend beating the £102.8 million of Skyfall.
Elsewhere there are still new films entering the box office and this week the Jennifer Lawrence/Robert De Niro double header Joy is the top new film.
Entering at number 3 the debut weekend gross of the movie is a little over £1.5 million.
Also new on this weeks box office top 10 is Eddie Raymond's new film The Danish Girl at 4 with £1.3 million.
The Force Awakens is understandably the highest total grossing film on the box office while Spectre is the longest running film on the charts clocking up 10 weeks so far.
