This weekends box office chart has Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker remaining at the top while The Gentlemen makes its UK debut at number 3.
Remaining at the top of the box office this weekend for a third straight weekend is the final Star Wars film directed JJ Abrams which takes £4.3 Million.
This puts the films 3 week total gross at £51.3 Million which is £17 Million behind that of Star Wars: The Last Jedi at the same stage in its box office run.
Star Wars fatigue has clearly set in for many fans, and despite the fact the film has been mostly better received than the previous film its numbers are simply not as good.
There is a small glimmer of hope that maybe the Christmas period slowed down the cinema going audience but I suspect this will end up the lowest grossing of the sequel trilogy.
The Dwayne Johnson and Jack Black starring sequel sits at number 2 this weekend with £3 Million on its 4th weekend of release.
This puts the movies total gross at £28.4 Million which is within a whisker of Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle when it was at the 4 week mark.
Director Guy Ritchie hits the box office again in less than 12 months with a London gangster basted movie which makes its debut with £3 Million.
Ritchies last movie was the Disney remake of Aladdin which made its debut with £7 Million, there was no way this was going to equal that but in comparison one of his early films with a similar genre style, Snatch from 2000, had a debut in the same ball park.
Greta Gerwig's telling of the classic novel falls to number 4 this weekend with £2.6 Million for a 2 week total gross of £9 Million.
Director Taika Waititi brings us his latest film which makes its debut at number 5 with £2.4 Million.
The Aardman animated movie as been on the box office for a 12 week run and is the longest on this weeks box office, it has taken £7 Million on that time.
