The Lion King returns to the top of the UK box office this week after letting go of it for Fast & Furious Presents Hobbs And Shaw while the top new film comes it at number 4 with Blinded By The Light.

The Lion King

Disneys remake of their 1994 hit animation has proved to be a massive hit in the same way the remake of Beauty And The Beast was back in 2017.

This week the film goes back to the top of the UK box office with an excellent £4.3 Million gross, incredible for a film which has been on general release for 4 weeks.

In comparison Beauty And The Beast had a big fall in its fourth week and took about a third of the previous weeks taking, here the film drop about a third from the previous weekend.

The films total is also higher and to date it has taken £59 Million and is the second highest grossing film of the year behind Avengers: Endgame.

Fast & Furious Presents Hobbs And Shaw

The Fast & Furious franchise move drops into second place on its 2nd weekend of release with £2.9 Million for a £12.8 Million total gross.

Toy Story 4

Another massive hit for Pixar with Woody and the gang taking £1.6 Million on its 8th weekend for a £58.7 Million Uk total.

<u><i><b>Blinded By The Light</b></i></u>

Blinded By The Light

Coming in at number 4 this weekend, and the highest new film, is the latest from acclaimed director Gurinder Chadha who brought us classics British films such as Bend It Like Beckham and Angus, Thongs And Perfect Snogging.

Not her best debut to date, but she'e contending with the Disney big hitters, but a debut of just shy of a Million is not bad for the Bruce Springsteen inspired movie.

Spider-Man: Far From Home

Still hanging onto a top 5 place the Sony Spider-Man movie takes £700K on its 6th weekend of release pushing its total to £35.5 Million.

Playmobil: The Movie

Maybe cashing in on the succes of the recent LEGO movies this animated version of the popular toys hots the chart at number 7 with just less than £400K.

Aladdin

Disneys other live action remake on the chart this week sits at number 15 after 12 weeks on the box office and a total UK gross of £36.5 Million.
