11NewFather FiguresWarner Bros£250,465

There are two new entries making the UK top 10 meaning that comedy Father Figures starring Owen Wilson and Christopher Walken fails to make it instead having to settle for number eleven and box office takings of just £250,465.

There is a brand new number one and it will come as no real surprise as Marvel’s superhero film Black Panther goes straight in at the top of the film charts with extremely impressive cinema takings of £17,700,000.  That means last week’s number Fifty Shades Freed drops one place to number two.

Taking a look at the weeks other new entry sees The Shape of Water enter at number three.  Meanwhile Bafta winning film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri drops down to number eight on the film chart although it may receive a little boost from all the recent attention.

On a side note 20th Century Fox occupy four places on the movie charts with films at three, four, eight and ten with combined weekend takings of £20,900,730.
