4th June 2019

Maybe the reception was a little more muted than Warner Bros. would have liked but Godzilla: King Of The Monsters still makes its debut at number 1 on the US box office.


Godzilla: King Of The Monsters

The sequel to 2014's Godzilla hits the US box office at the top with a weekend gross of $49 million which compared to the original is nearly half its $93 million debut.

Warner have big plans for the monster series and this is maybe a warning shot that the western movie fan is not as interested as those in China for example where the film had a monster opening.

The film is also lower than 2017's Kong: Skull Island and with a Kong and Godzilla matchup coming in 2020 there are warning signs.


Disneys live action remake starring Will Smith falls to number 2 this week with $42.3 million which gives the film a $185 million total gross after 2 weeks.


Making its debut at number 3 this week is the Elton John bio-pic which takes a respectable $25 million.

The films cinema run will be compared to Bohemian Rhapsody, although this film has debuted far lower than the Freddy Mercury film despite having better reviews.



Starring Octavia Spencer this suspense horror makes its debut at number 4 with a fairly muted $18.2 million opening.

John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

Falling to the number 5 spot after 3 weeks of release is the Keanu Reeves action films which takes $11.1 million for a $125.7 million total.

Avengers: Endgame

The Marvel movie is the top total gross film on the US box office this week and after 6 weeks has taken an incredible $815.5 million.


Despite being a smaller hit than Disney are used to the Tim Burton live action movie remake has been on the US box office for 10 weeks and has taken $113.7 million.

3rd May 2019

Directed by Tate Taylor and starring Octavia Spencer and Allison Janney Ma is released in the UK on 31st May 2019.

15 Certificate

This psychological horror has a star turn for Spencer who play a woman who invites students into her home to party but has sinister ulterior motive.

The film has a good horror pedigree coming from Jason Blum the producer of Get Out, Us and Happy Death Day.

The BBFC have given the film a 15 certificate for strong violence, sexual abuse, threat, sex, drug use, very strong language and it has an official run time of 99 minutes (1 hour 39 minutes).

30th April 2019

Avengers: Endgame was always going to open big, and on its 4 day opening weekend, including Thursday previews, the film gains the top opening weekend in the UK beating Spectre who gained it in 2015.

Eighth Grade

Avengers: Endgame

The latest Marvel movie, and end of this phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, took a gigantic £43.4 million on its debut weeekend.

Spectre in 2015 took the title with a 7 day opening, Monday - Sunday, so this is actually more impressive.

The film opened higher than expectation and we will be watching over the coming weeks to see if the film continues to gross well and beat Star Wars: The Force Awakens £123 million total gross, the highest in the UK.


Tim Burtons live action remake continues to do well at the UK box office and remains at number 2 this week with £1.02 Million.

This pushes the films total UK gross to £23.3 million after 5 weeks of release, comparatively the film is doing better in the UK than many other countries.

Wonder Park

The animated film climbs from 7 back to number 3 on its 3rd weekend of release with a £454,366 weekend, pushing its total to £3.8 million.

Red Joan

The Judi Dench starring film also climbs this week to number 4 with a weekend of £420,629 which now puts its total gross at £1.5 million.


The DC Captain Marvel falls from the top to number 5 this week with the Marvel film giving people their super hero fix.

The film takes £398,317 on its 4th weekend and it sits at £12.8 million in total grosses.

Captain Marvel

There was a thought that the other Marvel super hero film on release at the moment would get a boost from Avengers: Endgame but in reality the film falls to 6 on its 8th week of release, its total gross is £38.8 million.

Eighth Grade

Praised by critics this coming of age drama from director Bo Burnham lands on the box office at number 10 with £144,923, it did go up agains Avengers: Endgame!
