After rising to the top of the table last week with a superb 0% drop on its opening weekend, A Star Is Born was at it again this weekend, dropping a negligible 6.5% with £2.9m to remain top.

That result takes it to £14.9m to date, and with no sign of takings slowing down, Warner has a hit on its hands.

Family animation Smallfoot posted a solid hold in its second weekend, dropping 39% with a £1.4m Fri-Sun. That takes it to £4.3m to date.

Crazy Rich Asians is up to a cume total of £5.7m after adding £47,000, while The Nun is up to £11.4m with a further £26,000 this weekend.
