Being hailed as a new Christmas classic, Last Christmas makes its box office debut at the top and knocks Joker from number 1 after 6 weeks while Le Mans'66 also debuts high on the chart.

Last Christmas

Director Paul Feig brings to the big screen a story written by Emma Thompson and with music and influence by the late George Micheal that is set in London over Christmas and is set to be a seasonal favourite.

The movie which stars Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding took £2.6 Million on its debut and will no doubt continue to do well into the Christmas period.

Le Mans '66

The film known as Ford V. Ferrari in many parts of the world starring Matt Damon and Christian Bale makes its UK debut at number 2 this weekend.

THe film takes £2 Million on its debut weekend, altohugh despite the good reviews for the film I feel it will sink quite fast and move home video.

Joker

The DC villain movie falls to number 3 after an incredible 6 weeks at the top and the gross for the week is still just over the £1 Million mark.

After 7 weeks on the chart, the longest this week, the movie has taken £56.1 Million in total, the highest on this weeks chart.

The film is the 4th highest grossing of the year so far and with Toy Story 4 at number 3 and £10 Million ahead it wont climb and higher, in fact with Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker still due in 2019 there is a chance it could slip to number 5.

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil

Disney's highly hyped sequel falls to number 4 this week with £690,871 for a total of £14 Million.

This may be far lower than the original film, but its higher than I would have expected the film to get after its opening weekend.

The Addams Family

The animated version of the kooky family falls to number 5 this week with £646,751 for a 4 week total of £9 Million.

Spending an unprecedented sixth weekend at the top of the UK box office Joker easily beats out any new comers, The Aeronauts is the top new film coming in at number 2.

Joker

There is simply no stopping the Todd Philips directed movie at the moment as the DC villain movie makes it a cool 6 weeks at the top with a weekend gross of £1.6 Million.

The film this week became the top grossing 15 age rated film in the UK with a total gross of £54.3 Million.

The movie is also the highest total grossing film on this weeks box office and has the longest run at 6 weeks.

The Aeronauts

Highest new film of the week flies in at number 2, although the movie has a Monday release and the weekend take is half the £1.04 Million being reported.

The film is an Amazon produced movie and will disappear onto the companies streaming service soon and its box office taking will clearly suffer.

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil

Disney's sequel movie had a slow start but has sustained it box office over a 4 week release so far with £1.02 Million this weekend.

The film has managed a £13 Million gross so far, this is only a couple of Million below the first Maleficent movie at the same point in its run.

The Addams Family

The animated reboot of the TV show falls to number 4 this week with no Halloween to boost it with a weekend take of £1 Million.

The movie has now taken £8.2 Million after 3 weeks of release.

The Good Liar

Veteran British actors Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen team up in this number 5 new release for a £755,000 debut.

Director Todd Phillips movie Joker is proving that not all thing superhero has to be Disney as the movie spends a 5th weekend at the top, while the animated movie The Addams Family makes a very rare move on the chart and Doctor Sleep makes its debut lower than expected.

Joker

The Joaquin Phoenix starring movie spends a 5th weekend at the top of the box office, the most in 2019, with a weekend gross of £2.5 Million, yet again a very slim drop from the previous week.

Admittedly this is not the summer where weekend grosses are much higher but this is still an massive achievement and the film has been a monster hit for the DC Universe and Warner Bros.

The movies total gross in the UK is now £51.5 Million, it is the 4th highest grossing film of 2019 and is now the 35th highest grossing film ever.

The Addams Family

After a fairly low debut of number 4 last weekend the animated film based on the 60's TV show makes the unprecedented move of not only going up the chart to number 2 but also taking more money than its debut.

It was a school holiday which will have helped the movie but a weekend gross of £2.2 Million is more than £100,000 more than last week.

The film has a total gross of £6.9 Million.

Interesting to note that over the week Monday - Sunday it actually beat Joker in week grosses by a slim margin.

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil

Disneys sequel movie falls to 3 this weekend with £1.8 Million for a total gross of £11.6 Million after 3 weeks of release.

Doctor Sleep

Highest new film of the week is the long awaited sequel to Stanley Kubrick's cult classic The shining.

The movie is also based on a Stephen King book and after much publicity the movie makes is debut at number 4 with a weekend gross of £1.4 Million.

A lot lower than expectation, and with Halloween well and truly out of the way, the film may struggle over the coming months, especially with some big movie due for release over the rest of November and December.

Terminator: Dark Fate

Hailed as a return to form for the Terminator franchise the movie has simply not ignited the box office and on its second weekend it falls to number 4 with a weekend gross of £1.2 Million.

This means that after 2 weeks the film has taken just £5.3 Million, which is lower than the previous movie, Terminator Genisys, by a couple of million.

The movie is also not performing as well as expected across the world, does this mean that the Terminator franchise is dead? This film reportedly cost over $200 Million to make, not including marketing cost, will the studio still want to make more movie when this one looks like it will loose money?

Downton Abbey

The British TV show movie is at number 15 this weekend and has spent 8 weeks on the box office, the longest, and has a total UK gross of £27.7 Million.
