Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom stayed top of the UK box office for the fifth weekend. The film dropped a fairly slim 34% with £1.3m, taking it to £36.8m to date.

The First Purge, the fourth entry in the US dystopian franchise, opened to £1.2m from 483 sites for an average of £2,396. Including previews of £618,396 the film’s total so far is £1.8m.

Considering the challenges, that’s a pretty good opening for the film, measuring up to the UK openings of the previous three entries: The Purge (£1m), The Purge: Anarchy (£1.2m); and The Purge: Election Year (£807,803). Respectively, those films ended on £3.4m, £4.6m and £2.3m, meaning The First Purge should comfortably slot into the £2-3m range.

This weekend, the film was one of only two new entries in the UK Top 10 (the other being Picturehouse’s event cinema release of Beatles Yellow Submarine in tenth).
