X-Men: Apocalypse, which sees Bryan Singer back in the director's chair, took a further £2.5 million over the weekend and held off the strong challenge from the Johnny Depp-led movie.

This is the first X-Men film since the success of Days of Future Past two years ago and has grossed over $277 million worldwide so far.

Alice Through The Looking Glass is the sequel to the 2010 film Alice in Wonderland and sees Mia Wasikowska and Depp back as Alice and the Mad Hatter. James Bobin has taken over the director's chair from Tim Burton.

The film, which opened on Friday, took £2.2 million over the weekend to become the highest new entry at number two.

Angry Birds fell a single place to three while Money Monster was new in at four. The movie marks the return of Jodie Foster behind the camera as she teams up with George Clooney and Julia Roberts for the new thriller.

The Jungle Book was down two places this week as it rounded off the top five. Over the weekend, The Jungle Book became the third highest grossing film of the year as it surpassed Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

So far, the Jon Favreau-directed movie has grossed over $882 million worldwide and is now behind Captain America: Civil War and Zootropolis on the highest grossing films of 2016 list.

Civil War fell out of the top five for the first time this weekend as the latest Marvel film slipped two places from last week's number four. Bad Neighbours 2 was also down two at number seven.

Love & Friendship, which is based on the Jane Austen novel Lady Susan, was new at eight while there was no move for the Secret Cinema at number nine.
