Kenneth Branagh this week scores another number one film with his take on the Agatha Christie classic Murder On The Orient Express, and in turn knock an old friend from the top of the box office.

Directed by and starring Branagh along with a whole host of other big names like Judi Dench, Michelle Pfeiffer and Johnny Depp the film makes its debut with a respectable £4.9 million.

This already makes it his 4th most successful film as a director and by the end of its run it will be most likely 3rd with just Thor and Cinderella out doing it.

As just mentioned Branagh directed the first in the Thor series of films as by coincidence his new film knocks the latest Thor from the top spot.

Thor Ragnarok this week falls only to number 2, and it gave Murder On The Orient Express a good run for its money as it comes in with £4.6 million which brings the total gross to £20 million and its now the most successful Thor film in the UK.

Thor Ragnarok is still pulling in the audience and on a Monday to Sunday bases it would have by a long distance been the top film of the week taking in £8.1 million.

Also new this week is A Bad Moms Christmas which despite trying to celebrate Christmas in November, far too early, takes in £1.7 million at number 3.

Pokémon The Movie I Choose You and The Killing of the Sacred Deer are also new at numbers 9 and 10 respectively.

Kingsman The Golden Circle is the top total grossing movie this week with £24 million and the longest running film with 7 weeks on the chart.
