Fantasy - Adventure - Dumbo - Chart - Spot

Fantasy adventure Dumbo rose up the chart to retake top spot on its third weekend, recording a £2.3m Friday to Sunday total.

The film fell just 34% on its previous session, and has now grossed £17.7m in the UK in total.

Lifetime - Director - Tim - Burton - Miss

It has now passed the lifetime of director Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children (£12.3m in 2016) and Planet Of The Apes (£17m in 2001).

It is well behind the total gross of Disney live-action remakes Beauty And The Beast (£72.4m in 2017) and The Jungle Book (£46.2m in 2016), but will look for strong takings across the rest of the Easter holidays.

Captain - Marvel - Place - Rankings - %

Captain Marvel also rose a place in the rankings to third, dropping just 25% with an £885,000 weekend and £36.4m total. This week it will pass the lifetime totals of Iron Man 3 and Captain America: Civil War (both £37m), having already passed the previous standalone films for both characters. It should also top the £38.1m of Deadpool in the next few days.

On its second weekend Shazam! fell 46.8%, taking £2.1m for £8.9m total. This was the second highest non-US takings for the film for this session, behind China’s £3.7m ($4.9m), although neither amount represents a spectacular result.

LEGO - Movie - £28 - £18

The LEGO Movie 2 added £28,000 and is at £18.4m.

Animated animal adventure Wonder Park started with a £810,000 weekend. After opening wide on Monday of last week and making £760,000 in its first four days, the film has £1.6m total.

Pet - Sematary - % - Weekend - £644

Pet Sematary fell 50% on its second weekend, taking £644,000 for a £3m total to date.

What Men Want added £61,000 for £2.9m so far, while Instant Family put on £9,600 for £10.6m total.
