What were the big movies hitting the UK box office over the last 30 year?

Each week we present a rundown of the UK box office chart headlines on this same week from last year to 1990.

A year ago (2019)

The number one film was Aladdin which had been at the top for 2 weeks.

The top new film of the week was Godzilla: King Of The Monsters directed by Michael Dougherty and starring Kyle Chandler and Vera Farmiga which entered the box office at number 2.

The longerst run on the box office and the top total grossing film was Avengers: Endgame which had taken £87 Million over 6 weeks of release.

Five years ago (2015)

Also making its debut at the top was San Andreas starring Dwayne Johnson and Carla Gugino and directed by Brad Peyton

The film with the longest run was Home which had been on the box office for 11 weeks.

The top total grossing film of the week was Avengers: Age Of Ultron which had taken £47.1 Million after 6 weeks of release.

Ten years ago (2010)

Another film making its debut at the top was Sex And The City 2 starring Sarah Jessica Parker and Kristin Davis and directed by Michael Patrick King

The longerst run on the box office and the top total grossing film was Iron Man 2 which had taken £20 Million over 5 weeks of release.

Fifteen years ago (2005)

The number one film was Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith which had been at the top for 2 weeks and with a total gross of £24.3 Million it was also the top total grossing film.

The top new film of the week was House Of Wax directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and starring Elisha Cuthbert and Chad Michael Murray which entered the box office at number 2.

The film with the longest run was Valiant which had been on the box office for 10 weeks.

Twenty years ago (2000)

The number one film was Gladiator which had been at the top for 3 weeks and with a total gross of £14.4 Million it was also the top total grossing film.

The top new film of the week was Deuce Bigalow Male Gigolo directed by Mike Mitchell and starring Rob Schneider and William Forsythe which entered the box office at number 4.

The film with the longest run was Erin Brockovich which had been on the box office for 8 weeks.

Twenty five years ago (1995)

The number one film was Rob Roy which had been at the top for 2 weeks.

The top new film of the week was Richie Rich directed by Donald Petrie and starring Macaulay Culkin and John Larroquette which entered the box office at number 2.

The longerst run on the box office and the top total grossing film was Star Trek Generations which had taken £20.3 Million over 16 weeks of release.

Thirty years ago (1990)

Making its debut at the top was Pretty Woman starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts and directed by Garry Marshall

The longerst run on the box office and the top total grossing film was Look Who's Talking which had taken £10.1 Million over 9 weeks of release.

Disney are at it again moving Pixar's Soul from June 19th to November 20th and their own Raya And The Last Dragon to March 12th 2021.

This first move, Soul, is an interesting one, Disney recently moved their tentpole picture Mulan to 24th July, I guess they are presuming cinemas will be open again by then, but by moving Soul they seem to be suggesting that things will still be on lockdown in mid June?

The move also puts the film in direct competition with Godzilla Vs. Kong, and since that film has been moved once already I suspect unfortunately that the film may well go direct to streaming, a lot depends how long the lockdown lasts though.

Raya And The Last Dragon

Raya And The Last Dragon was due for a late November release and it makes sense to move the film to 2021.

The scheduling issue are starting to get a bit of a nightmare mind as this move to Raya puts it in loose competition with many tentpole films from various studios, and means that early 2021 is starting to get very crowded.

Expect more re-scheduling from studios as there is still no sign of cinemas opening in the coming weeks.

Spirited Away is arguably one of director Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli best films but in 2001 when the film was originally released it was banned in China, that ban was lifted this week and the film finally got a long overdue release.

Toy Story 4

There was another animated film released this week in China, and the rest of the world, this week, Toy Story 4, a brand new animation from Pixar and the fourth film in the very successful Toy Story Series.

In most of the world Toy Story 4 has topped the box office, including most of Europe and the United States, but in China the incredible happened and the 18 year old animation beat the brand new films.

This is quite incredible, and good news for cinema and the Chinese box office, I suspect many people in China have seen the film as it has been available on home video for years, but it would seem the public want to see this film on the big screen.

Its not all bad news for the Pixar movie as it has landed on the box office at number 2, but with Spirited Away taking $27.8 Million dollars (converted) compared with $13.2 Million (converted) the Toy Story film took half that of the Japanese animation.

Here is the Chinese top 5 Box Office Weekend of 21st June 2019

  1. Spirited Away $27,842,673
  2. Toy Story 4 $13,209,667
  3. Men in Black International $5,872,709
  4. Godzilla: King of the Monsters $3,455,340
  5. My Best Summer $3,209,289

The Men In Black are back and hit the top of the global box office on their debut weekend of release leaving X-Men: Dark Phoenix to drop from the top after only a week.

Shaft

Men In Black International

The series started way back in 1997 and over 20 years later we get the fourth film with new stars and an international setting.

Unfortunately the Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth starring movie has not done nearly as well as the previous film and globally grosses $102.2 million from 57 countries on its debut.

Aladdin

Its been a bit of a slow burner but the Will Smith starring Disney live action film is still at 2 with a global take of $64.2 million from 56 countries.

This pushes the films total gross to a very acceptable $724.8 million after 4 weeks of release.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix

After making its debut at the top last week the X-Men film falls to number 3 this week with $33.2 million from 56 countries.

The film has now taken a global gross of $204.2 million afer 2 weeks.

The Secret Life Of Pets 2

The animated movie takes $32.2 million from 37 countries this weekend for a total gross of $154.5 million after 4 weeks of release.

Godzilla: King Of The Monsters

The Godzilla sequel takes $22 million from a whopping 80 countries this weekend and is at 5 on the global box office, the films total gross is $339.4 after 3 weeks of release.

Shaft

The Samual L. Jackson film is the second highest new film this week at number 9 with a global gross of $8.3 million from a single country of release.

Avengers: Endgame

The Marvel movie is struggling to beat Avatar and this week sits at number 12 on the box office with a total gross of $2.742 million.

It has been announced that the film will be pushed at the cinemas again next week with an extra bonus added to the film, it might just be enough to push it past Avatar.

The latest X-Men movie Dark Phoenix takes over at the top of the global box office on its debut weekend while Godzilla falls herd on its second weekend of release leaving Aladdin to do well with The Secret Life Of Pets 2 also increasing its dominence after a US release.

Aladdin

X-Men: Dark Phoenix

Hitting the top of the global box office the latest, and probably last, film in the 20th Century Fox X-Men saga the film manages a weekend gross of $140 million from 54 countries.

This is by far the lowest debut of any of the series and after the unfavourable reviews it will most likely end up the lowest grossing movie of the series.

Aladdin

The Disney live action movie is doing well in areas like Europe but not doing so well in North America hence the film manages a good $92.1 million from 56 countries and sits at number 2 this week.

This pushes the films total global gross after 3 weeks to a very respectable $604.8 million.

The Secret Life Of Pets 2

The animated sequel gets its North American release this weekend and flies back up the box office to number 3 with a weekend gross of $63.1 million from 31 countries.

The films total gross is now at $97 million after 3 weeks of release.

Godzilla: King Of The Monsters

The big monster movie falls hard from the top where it debuted last weekend to number 4 with $62.6 million from 79 countries.

The films total global gross is $292.2 million after 2 weeks of release.

Rocketman

The Elton John bio-pic falls to 5 this week with $27 million from 51 countries for a 3 week total gross of $101.7 million.

Avengers: Endgame

The Marvel mega hit falls to number 12 this week with a total global gross of $2.73 Billion after 7 weeks of release.

Its looking increasingly unlikely it will topple the Avatar total of $2.78 Billion although it can't be totally written off yet.
