Fighting With My Family slams rivals to take UK crown

Fighting With My Family 1

Wrestling bio Fighting With My Family body-slammed all opponents to go top of the UK Chart.

The movie, from tag team Stephen Merchant and Dwayne Johnson and starring Florence Pugh, took a count of £2m on its debut weekend, supplanting former number one The Lego Movie 2, which took the runner’s up spot.

Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne foster drama Instant Family moved down the pecking order to third, with animation How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World with plenty of fire in its belly in fourth, having taken £17.2m so far.

Oscar winning Green Book, starring Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen, cruised up the chart to fifth, with Keira Knightley's latest, WW2 drama The Aftermath opening in sixth with just shy of £600k, while James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez collaboration Alita: Battle Angel fell to seventh.

Completing the top ten are Joe Cornish’s The Kid Who Would Be King, Liam Neeson revenge thriller Cold Pursuit and new entry, the Polish crime drama Kobiety Mafii 2.
