Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them stays at the top of the UK box office for a second weekend keeping off Allied which makes its debut at number 2.
With a second weekend gross of £8.8 million Fantastic Beasts has a brilliant second weekend which brings its total gross after 2 weekends of release to £30 million.
This result is actually keeping in line with the Harry Potter series, the latter films had far better first weekends but fell to roughly the same for the second weekend.
The potential for Beasts to go on and make similar to the early Potter films at least is quite high if it keeps on this trajectory.
Landing at 2 this week if the latest Brad Pitt starring film Allied, co starring Marion Cotillard and directed by Robert Zemeckis the drama takes £1.3 million on its debut.
For both Pitt and Zemeckis this is a fairly typical opening gross, although for both this is no where near their highest grossing debuts.
Also new this week is Bad Santa 2 at 4 with &poind;.7 million and very bad reviews, A United Kingdom at 6, Dear Zindagi at 9 and Paterson at 10.
Fantastic beasts this week becomes the top total grossing movie on the chart while Storks is the longest running film at 7 weeks.

The Force Awakens this week opened in the last of the worlds major territories and broken records in that country too.
China is the last of the major cinema going nations, and like in almost all other countries it is now the highest grossing opening film.
The last record the film has to get now is that of the highest grossing movie of all time, currently held by Avatar with $2.8 billion dollars, can it get there, its actually looking unlikely.
Despite all the records that The Force Awakens has broken, and the fact that most of the world is still showing the film it still needs to make another billion dollars, this could be out of its reach.
I am certain that it will be the first film since Avatar to go over $2 billion, and I suspect it has a good chance of beating Titanic which is number 2 with $2.1 billion but there will have to be a lot of repeat viewing to get to $2.8 billion, but who knows at this point?
Highest new film of the week is The Forest which has grossed $13.5 million from 5 territories and sits at number 6 this week.
Worth a mention is The Revenant which is out in 11 countries and went in general release this week and sits at number 2 this week with $58.2 million.
This week top 10 looks like this

JJ Abrams continuation of the Star Wars saga this week completely dominated the world box office in every country it was released in.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens took on its opening weekend $517 million, the highest opening gross ever beating this years Jurassic World by a comfortable margin.
It took the current highest grossing movie Avatar 11 days to get to this figure, and with the massively positive reviews the Star Wars film has had its possible that it could become the higerst grossing film in time.
Last weeks top film across the world, The Hunger Games: Mockinjay Part 2, falls to number 6 this week, although it did spend 4 weeks at the top.
A surprisingly active chart for new releases also sees Mojin The Lost Legend new at 2, Sisters new at 4 and Alvin and The Chipmunks The Road Chip new at 5.
Highest total grossing film on the world box office this week Spectre who's world gross now stands at $836.1 million.
