18th September 2019

The darling of British TV makes its debut on the big screen and it was all too much for Pennywise as Downton Abbey leaves the horror film with only a single week at the top.

Downton Abbey

Making the transition from successful TV series to hit movie on the big screen the famous house from the 1920's aristocracy makes its debut at the top of the UK box office.

The films debut was maybe a little quieter than expected but it still manages a very reasonable £5.1 Million openeing.

This is in keeping woth similar films of this genre but if you compare it to It Chapter Two, a typical overhyped hollywood movie which it knocks off this week, it is a couple of million lower.

IT Chapter Two

It may be a temporary removal from the top but the Stephen King adaptation falls to number 2 this week after a single week at the top with a weekend gross of £3.1 Million.

This pushes the films total UK gross to £13.5 Million after 2 weeks of release which is £8 Million behind the first film.

Hustlers

Hustlers

Also entering the box office this week at number 3, starring Constance Wu and Jennifer Lopez the film makes quite an impressive debut with £1.3 Million.

The film is from director Lorene Scafaria and is based on a viral magazine column from New York about strippers taking their lives into their own hands.

Once Upon A Time ... In Hollywood

By far Tarantino best film to date the 1960 Hollywood set film falls to 4 this week with £557,889 taking its total UK gross to £19.8 Million.

The Lion King

Jon Favreau animated remake (have we stopped calling it live action now?) falls to number 5 this week with £439,795 taking its total to £73.8 Million.

It is the highest total grossing movie on the chart this week and is the second highest grossing film of the year.

Toy Story 4

Pixars animated sequel is at number 9 and has the longerst run on the chart with 13 weeks and its total gross is sitting at £64.9 Million.

18th September 2019

Parasite the new film from director Joon-ho Bong who also directed the 2013 film Snowpiercer starring Chris Evans, is given a 15 age rating in the UK.

15 Certificate

The film has already been a big hit in many parts of the world and it has grossed nearly $100 Million globally already.

The film has been given a 15 age rating by the BBFC for strong bloody violence, language, sex, sex references, it was passed uncut and has a runtime of 132 minutes (2 hours 13 minutes) and a release date of 7th February 2020.

17th September 2019

Although it remains at the top for a second weekend IT Chapter Two fell hard and had a serious challenge from highest new entry Hustlers which makes its debut at the US box office.

IT Chapter Two

After making its debut on the box office chart last weekend the horror sequel remains at the top this weekend despite dropping 55% from last weekend for a take of $40.7 Million.

This takes the Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy starring movies total gross to $153.8 after 2 weeks of release.

The film is unlikely to reach the $327 Million of the first movie.

Hustlers

Coming in as the highest new entry of the week is this comedy drama starring Constance Wu and Jennifer Lopez and directed by Lorene Scafaria based on a New York Magazine article.

The film does better than expected with a debut gross of $33.2 Million.

Angel Has Fallen

The Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman sequel movie is at 3 this week and takes $4.4 Million on its fourth weekend taking its total to $60.3 Million.

Good Boys

The R rated comedy is at number 4 this week with $4.2 Million pushing its total to $73.3 Million after 5 weeks on release.

The Lion King

Making a slow climb down the box office, and the longest run on this weeks chart at 9 weeks is Disney's animated remake which is at number 5 this week and adds $3.5 Million and pushes its total to $533.9 Million.

16th September 2019

There were a number of new films hitting the global box office this weekend, many of them from China, but none were big enough to stop IT Chapter Two from getting a second weekend at the top.

IT Chapter Two

Remaining at the top for a second weekend is the Stephen King novel adaptation sequel which this weeks takes a bit drop from its debut sut still manages $87.7 Million from 79 countries.

This means that the Andy Muschietti directed sequel has now taken $323.3 Million globally after 2 weeks of release.

Hustlers

Hustlers

Coming in at the highest new film of the week is the American movie starring Constance Wu and Jennifer Lopez which takes $37.7 Million on its debut weekend.

The film is only released in 16 countries so not a bad effort for a film with little advertising spend from the studio.

Detective Conan: The Fist Of Blue Sapphire

Also making its debut on the global box office this weekend is the 23rd film in the Detective Conan animated movies.

The Fist Of Blue Sapphire is making its global box office debut this week at 3 although the film has been out for some time, this week is takes $25.4 Million as it expands to 3 countries.

The film has now taken a global total of $114.2 Million.

Bad Guys: Reign Of Chaos

Another new release making its box office debut with a single country release of China, the film makes its debut at number 4 with a take of $19 Million.

The Last Wish

Finally on the top 5 a film making its debut and released in just 2 countries with a weekend box office gross of $18.6 Million.

Again the film has been out some weeks already and has a total global gross of $22.9 Million despite this being its chart debut.

11th September 2019

It Chapter Two brings to and end a quiet couple of weeks at the UK box office as it enters the top of the box office while Polish Political drama Polityka enters inside the top 5.

IT Chapter Two

Its been 2 years since the original IT scared audiences on its debit weekend to the tune of £10 Million, the sequel has not quite reached that mark but the £7.3 Million has given the UK box office a boost.

Whereas the first film relied on its young cast and the thought of Pennywise the clown to carry the film this film brings in some big hitting stars like Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy and Bill Hader.

The first film went on to £32 Million in the UK and hung around till the end of October (Halloween), expect this to not quite do as well as its predecessor but hang around until late October.

Once Upon A Time ... In Hollywood

Quentin Tarantino's (who lets face it is the real star of this movie) 9th film falls to number 2 this week and is easily his most successful film to date as this weekend it take £1 Milllion.

This pushes the movies total gross to £18.5 Million after 4 weeks of release.

Angel Has Fallen

The third film in the Fallen series starring Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman falls to number 3 this week with £695,622 taking its total to £5.9 Million.

Highest total grossing film on the box office this week and a £686,991 weekend puts its total at an incredible £73.1 after 8 weeks of release.

Polityka

Entering the box office at number 5 this week is a Polish Political drama starring Iwona Bielska and Marcin Bosak and directed by Patryk Vega.

The film takes a very respectable £517,255 on its debut from a limited run of 236 screens making an average of nearly £2,000 per screen.

Toy Story 4

Pixars mega hit has the longest run on the UK box office this weekend as the film notches up its 12th weekend with a total UK gross of £64.5 Million.
