Musical Mamma Mia: Here we Go Again! refuses to go away remaining at two for yet another week whilst managing to take £1.7m from 654 cinemas and gross to date figures of £58.7m after six weeks on release no doubt making Universal Pictures very happy. There’s no change at three with Jason Statham continuing to play with a giant shark in The Meg whilst Incredibles 2 climbs from six last week to number four this week.
So what of those new entries? Where did BlacKkKlansman enter on the UK film charts? Well it landed at number six taking an impressive £1.2m from just 217 cinemas. Meanwhile The Spy Who Dumped Me is this week’s other new entry inside the top 10. Starring Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon the comedy took just over a £1m but from 475 cinemas, that’s 258 more than BlacKkKlansman just to put it in some context.
Comedy The Festival starring Inbetweener Joe Thomas slips out of the top 10 after just two weeks on release falling from five to twelve. There were also three new films that failed to break into the top ten worth mentioning, The Children Act (11), Slender Man (14) & Alpha (15).
