20th November 2018

UK audiences were spellbound by the Fantastic Beasts sequel this week, but is the love for the Wizarding World starting to wane a bit?

The Grinch

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald

This weeks top movie in the UK took an excellent £12.3 million at the UK box office on its debut and although this makes it the 54th top opening film in the UK its £3 million lower than Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.

Its only natural that after nearly 20 years of magical films audiences have seen it all before and don't rush to the cinema to see new films from the Wizarding World.

As we have seen this year with Star Wars movies and in the past with film series like The Hobbit even die hard fans can get too much of a good thing and will wait to see a movie.

The Grinch

Making its debut at the top last week the animated retelling of the Dr. Seuss story falls to 2 this week with a £3.9 million weekend pushing its total to £10 million.

Bohemian Rhapsody

Still wowing audiences in the UK is the Queen bio-pic which after 4 weeks of release still manages a £3 million weekend which brings the films total UK gross to £34.8 million.

The film is now the 8th top film of 2018 and the 90th top grossing film ever in the UK.

Widows

The Steve McQueen directed movie is at number 4 this weeks with a weekend gross of £882,243 which brings the films total takings to £4.3 million.

A Star Is Born

There has been no stopping this Bradley Cooper directed film in the UK as the film has a 7th weekend in the top 5 with £0.7 million which brings the films total to £27 million.

11th July 2017

Spider-Man joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the first time in Spider-Man Homecoming and with the help of Iron Man tops the Uk box office.

The new re-boot (the third for the franchise) stars Tom Holland and reaches the top with a £9.3 million opening weekend.

In terms of previous Spider-Man films this is fairly standard with only Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man doing far better.

Despicable Me 3 falls to second place but still manages a £5 million weekend which brings the films total gross to nearly £20 million.

With the school summer holidays fast approaching expect this film to hang around for a while.

Yet gain The Boss Baby is the longest running film of the week with 14 weeks on total on the chart and it is also the highest total grossing film with £28 million.

Historical charts

A year ago
The Secret Life of Pets held on to the top of the chart with The Legend of Tarzan coming in as the highest new film at number 2.

Five years ago
The Amazing Spider-Man starring Andrew Garfield made its debut at the top of the box office on its debit weekend knocking Ice Age: Continental Drift down to number 2.

Ten years ago
Shrek The Third remained at the top for a second weekend while the top new film was Die Hard 4.0 starring Bruce Willis at number 2.

Fifteen years ago
Tom Cruise starred in Minority Reports which too over at the top on its debut while Spider-Man fell to number 2 after 3 weeks on top.

28th November 2016

Rounding out November of 2016 with another good weekend at the global box office is Fantastic beasts and Where To Find Them which on its third week makes $177.1 million from 68 countries.

This brings the films total gross to $473.7 million and it wont be long before the film crosses the half a billion mark in global takings.

It might struggle though to make its way to the $1 billion mark though as the film is not yet climbing the heights experienced by the Harry Potter series and many die hard Potter fans are not warming to the new adventures.

Highest new film of the week is Disney's Moana which makes its debut at number 2 with $71 million from 13 countries, it hits most other countries this coming Friday.

Interestingly although the film did well in America China did not do so well with the film only taking $12 million.

Fantastic Beasts is still the film released in the most number of countries and Doctor Strange has the highest total gross on the top 10 this week with $617 million in global takings.

15th September 2015

This week British film Legend starring Tom Hardy crashes in at the top of the UK box office in its debut weekend of release replacing Compton after a couple of weeks.

Legend is based on the story of the Kray twins and details their rise to infamy, the film takes £5.1 million on it's debut.

Falling from the top spot to number 4 this week is Straight Outta Compton, now on its 3rd week of release it has grossed a very respectable £7.1 million.

Also new on the chart this week is Maze Runner The Scorch Trials which enters at number 2 and M. Night Shyamalan The Visit which is new at 3, this makes a whole new top 3 at the UK.
