The multi-BAFTA-winning war film 1917 continued to storm the UK Box Office.

Now in its fourth week, Sam Mendes’ drama, starring George McKay, took a further £2.7m, keeping Will Smith’s Bad Boys at bay in second.

Armando Iannucci’s Dickens’ adaptation, The Personal History Of David Copperfield, remained rooted in third, while Greta Gerwig’s adaptation of Little Women sat still in fourth.

Guy Ritchie’s crime caper The Gentlemen and Dwayne Johnson’s Jumanji sequel traded places in fifth and sixth respectively, while there was a slew of new entries completing the top ten, the first of which was Daniel Kaluuya’s Queen & Slim, which opened in seventh with £507k.

Tom Hanks’ bio on American legend Mr Rogers, A Beautiful Day In The Neighbourhood, debuted in eighth with £493k, while Met Opera’s Porgy And Bess and Robert Eggers’s The Lighthouse, starring Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson, complete the chart.
