Civil War took a further £2.7 million over the weekend to hold off the challenge from The Angry Bird Movies, which is the first of four brand new entries inside the top ten this week.

Civil War has now taken over $957 million at the global box office and is well on course to be the first film to gross over $1 billion this year.

The Angry Birds Movie is based on the popular computer game and is the first time that these characters have been brought to the big screen.

The movie opened with £2.1 million to leap-frog The Jungle Book and put Civil War under some pressure. Fergal Reilly and Clay Kaytis are in the director's chair while Jason Sudeikis leads an all-star voice cast.

The Jungle Book was down a single place this week as is rounded off the top three. It is now the fourth highest-grossing film of the year with $829 million worldwide.

Bad Neighbours 2 and Florence Foster Jenkins were both down one as they ended the weekend at four and five.

Our Kind of Traitor is the latest John le Carre novel to be adapted for the big screen and sees Ewan McGregor star alongside Naomie Harris, Damian Lewis, and Stellan Skarsgård,

The thriller was the second new entry this week as the movie opened outside the top five at number six. Everybody Wants Some!!, the first feature film for director Richard Linklater since the success of Boyhood, was also new in at number seven,

The Secret Cinema screening of 28 Days Later slipped a single place to number eight while Eye in the Sky was this week's biggest faller, slipping three places from six to number nine.

Green Room was the fourth and final new entry as it opened at number ten. The movie marks the return of Jeremy Saulnier to the director's chair for his first feature since the huge critical success of Blue Ruin.
