Highest chart position: 1
Weeks on box office: 11
The strength of Toy Story 4 was too much for newcomer Yesterday this week as the Pixar movie remains at the top and the Beatles inspired film enters the box office at number 2.
Remaining at the top for a second weekend the animated hit takes £8.3 Million, down less than 50% from last week.
This takes the films total gross in the UK to £27 Million, compared to Toy Story 3 which is the highest grossing film in the series this is £10 Million lower at the same stage of release.
The Beatles inspires hit directed by Danny Boyle and written by Richard Curtis makes its debut at number 2 this week with £2.2 Million.
The Diretors highest grossing film in the UK to date is Slumdog Millionaire from 2009 who's debut was very similar to this, that film went on to gross £31.6 Million.
Richard Curtis biggest hit to date is LoveActually from 2003 which had a far bigger debut and went on to gross £36.2 Million in the UK with out the Oscar glory Slumdog had.
Disney's live action movie is still going strong in the UK and this week takes £694,716 for a total UK gross of £33.8 Million after 6 weeks of release.
Sinking fast but still with its neck above the water a weekend take of £515,506 keeps it in the top 5 at 4 and pushes its total to £6 Million.
There is no doubt this has not been the revival of the series that was hoped and it must be in question if we will see any more Men In Black films going forward.
Daniel Craigs first outing as James Bond is currently getting the Secret Cinema treatment and this has pushed in film back into the top 5 this week with a weekend gross of £515,506.
This now pushes the films total UK gross to £57.2 Million since its original release in December 2006, it is the 19th highest grossing movie ever in the UK.
The Marvel smash hit is still doing very well in the UK and this week it is at number 6 after 10 weeks of release and has an incredible UK gross of £88.3 Million.
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.
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
Toy Story 4 makes its debut at the top of the UK box office pushing 4 week champ Aladdin down to number 3, but its all good news for Disney who have back to back number 1 films.
The fourth in the series that started back in 1996 and was the first feature film for the fledgeling company Pixar makes its debut on the UK box office with £13.3 Million.
The original toy story made its debut with £5.35 million, but adjusted for inflation this is about £11.5 Million, in a very similar ball park.
For a better comparison Toy Story 3 made its debut in July 2010 to a phenomenal £21.2 Million which would be £27 Million adjusted for inflation, so this new film has a way to go.
The Disney live action film falls from the top after a fantastic 4 week run and takes £1.2 Million on its 5th weekend.
This pushes the films total UK gross to an excellent £32.5 Million, its still got a way to go to beat the live action champ Beauty And The Beasts £72.4 Million but it has done probably better than expected.
The films disappointing debut has continued this weekend as the Men In Black reboot falls to 3 with £1 Million bringing its 2 week total gross to £5 Million.
The Elton John film is hanging onto its top 5 place and this week is at 4 with £783,785 to boosts its total to £21 Million after 5 weeks.
Directed by David Yarovesky and Starring Elizabeth Banks and David Denman this horror superhero film makes its debut at number 5 with £509,030 and is the second highest new film of the week.
The Marvel film is 9 weeks on now and is about the leave the box office chart but after a record smashing run the film has a total UK gross of £88 Million and the film will most likely be the top grossing film of the year.
A new Pixar film is a big event and a new Toy Story film is an even bigger event, and the new sequel hits the top of the US box office with ease on its debut weekend.
The animated feature takes in $118 Million over the weekend, including previews, and hits the number 1 spot easily and although it takes more money than its predecessor the film had less audience.
Still this is good for the sequel to the original Pixar film and it should go on to be one of the top grossing animation in the US ever.
The horror movie remake was never going to compete with Toy Story 4 and comes in at number 2 this week with a debut gross od $14 Million.
The Disney live action movie is still holding on to a position on the top 5 and this week takes $12.2 Million.

This is not good news for the franchise and it will end up the lowest grossing film in the series.
At number 5 this week is the animated secret pets film which takes $10.3 Million on its 3rd weekend for a $117.5 Million gross.
After 9 weeks of release the Marvel movie has a total gross of $834.5 Million and is at number 13 this week.
