The last box office chart of the year and Rogue One A Star Wars Story is still the top film across the country for a third straight week while top new film Why Him? comes in at number 2.

With a weekend gross that is showing only a gradual slow down Rogue One takes £5.9 million, this brings the films total gross to £52 million and makes it the highest grossing film released in 2016 in the UK.

Its still not the highest grossing film in the calendar year 2016 with Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens £5 million ahead but for Disney/Lucasfilms to have a the one and two position of the year its been a great year for Star Wars.

Highest new entry of the week entering at 2 is the James Franco comedy Why Him? which takes a very respectable £2.1 million.

For a not franchise film and with Franco as the main headline this is actually a good debut, but with little publicity and very little word of mouth the film could sink fast.

Highest total grossing film is Rogue One while longest running film this week is The Secret Life of Pets which has now been in cinemas for 15 weeks and this week is at number 15.
