Captain America: Civil War has dominated the UK box office this weekend and has ended the reign of The Jungle Book.

Captain America: Civil War

Captain America: Civil War

Civil War is the first of two Marvel films to hit the big screen and is the first solo film for Captain America since the critical and commercial success of The Winter Solider in 2014.

The movie, which sees Anthony and Joe Russo back in the director's chair, has already won over the critics and has grossed £14,46 million in the UK on its opening weekend - not including the Bank Holiday Monday takings.

Civil War is the highest new entry on the chart this week and the first four new entries dotted throughout the top ten.

The Jungle Book had to give up the top spot this week but slipped just a single place to number two. The Jon Favreau-directed film is still the #1 movie in the U.S. but looks on course to lose out to Civil War for a second time this weekend.

Eye in the Sky was another single place faller as the war drama was down at number three. Zootropolis was the only none-mover on the chart this week as it stayed put at four. The Disney animation film has now grossed over £22 million in the UK alone.

Bastille Day was down two at five and rounded off the top five. Jake Gyllenhaal returned to the big screen this weekend and the film was the second new entry at number six.

Friend Request fell out of the top five as it dropped from five to number seven this week. Oscar winner Son of Saul and Elektra: Met Opera were new in at eight and nine.

Eddie the Eagle was this week's biggest faller as the movie slipped three places from seven to round off the top ten.
