7th June 2017

This week the flagging DC Cinematic Universe owned by Warner Bros. got a well needed kick start with Wonder Woman that not only got a fantastic opening weekend but also got good reviews.

For a new IP starring the little known Gal Gadot a £6.1 million opening is fantastic, although Chris Pine does brings some star power and the film easily takes over at the top of the UK box office.

Compared to the previous 2 films in the series, Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice and Man of Steel it is far lower but the reviews have been far better and this film could have a good run ahead of it.

With Justice League coming on November this year it could be a good year for Warner and the DC property it so wants to be a rival to Marvel Cinematic Universe but is lacking to date.

Falling from the top to number 3 this week is Pirates of The Caribbean: Salazars Revenge, a weekend take of £2 million brings the films total to £13 million.

Worth noting is for the week Monday - Sunday Pirates of The Caribbean: Salazars Revenge would have still been number 1 with a weekly take of £7.7 million.

Also making its debut this week is Baywatch, a slapstick retelling of the 90s TV show, starring Dwayne Johnson and Zak Efron the film takes £4.6 million, not bad really but not good up against a superhero movie.

This week has Smurfs The Lost Village as the longest running film with 9 weeks while Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 is the top total grossing movie with £39.6 million after 6 weeks.
