Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood retained its place at the top of the UK box office chart for a third straight weekend, adding £1.8m for £16.3m to date. That was only 14% down on its previous session.

The result means the film is now Quentin Tarantino’s biggest release in the UK, surpassing the £15.7m taken by Django Unchained in 2013.

This weekend also marked the widest point of release for the title, with it rising to 704 sites.

Overall, the majority of new releases failed to make a significant impact on the UK box office this weekend. However, there were strong returns among many of the holdover titles, and even a few upticks registered on more family-focused releases.

Angry Birds 2 was up a healthy 36%, adding £258,000 for £4.7m to date. Spider-Man: Far From Home was also up, rising 4% with £204,000 taking it to £36.5m.

Toy Story 4 was up a hefty 29% on its previous weekend with £580,000 taking it to £63.8m to date.

Angel - Has - Fallen - Hold - Weekend

Angel Has Fallen posted an impressive hold in its second weekend, dropping a slim 15% with £1.2m. The film has now risen to £4.5m, meaning it will likely move close to the lifetime of predecessor Olympus Has Fallen (£6.2m) by next weekend.

The Queen’s Corgi added £37,880 and is now on £2.4m.
