X-Men: Apocalypse

X-Men: Apocalypse

The comic book movies went head to head over the weekend and it was the latest X-Men instalment - the first since the critical and commercial success of The Days of Future Past in 2014 - that came out on top.

The movie, which sees Bryan Singer back in the director's chair, took £7.3 million as it easily saw off the challenge from the rest of the top five this week.

The Angry Birds Movie was a none-mover at number two as it took a further £2 million on its second weekend on release.

The Jungle Book - which has taken over $862 million worldwide - was the second and final none-mover as remained at number three.

Captain America: Civil War was this week's biggest faller as the film slipped from the top spot to this week's number four. However, it has become the first film of 2016 to gross over $1 billion. Bad Neighbours 2 rounded off the top five - slipping one place from last week's number four.

A Hologram for the King, which marks the return of Tom Hanks to the big screen, was new in at number six. Florence Foster Jenkins fell out of the top five as it slipped two places to number seven.

Our Kind of Traitor was also down two at number eight while Secret Cinema: 28 Days Later was down just one spot at number nine.

Thomas & Friends: The Great Race was the third and final new entry inside the top ten this week as it opened at number ten.
