It’s that time of the week when we take a quick look at the this weeks top films around the UK, these figures are for top 10 box office movies this week.
UK Cinema Charts January 5 2018 (Top 10 Box Office Movies This Week)

Here are the top 10 box office movies this week including three new entries, Molly’s Game lands in fourth place, All the Money in the World in sixth and Hostiles in ninth position on the UK film chart.
So none of the new entries make it to the top but we do indeed have a new number one film at the UK box office. The force may well be weakening as Star Wars: The Last Jedi drops to number two with cinema takings of £3,543,117, which is still impressive. Furthermore Disney’s sci-fi adventure now has gross to date takings of a massive £76,723,930.
That all means the that Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle moves up to top spot taking £3,895,450 and total takings after three weeks on release of £26,272,798 which should certainly keep Sony Pictures happy.
Elsewhere Paddington 2 (due out in America this week) falls from five to seven but still manages to take £1,034,372 at the UK box office with total earnings of £40,415,771 after nine weeks on release.
So that’s our quick look at this weeks top films.
