28th January 2019

With nothing of note in the way of new releases it was easy for M. Night Shyamalan Glass to stay at the top of the box office while The Kid Who Would Be King is the highest new film at 4.

The Boy Who Would Be King

Glass

Hanging on for a second week at the top is the Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy triple header which takes $19.04 million on its second weekend.

This brings the films total US gross to $79.5 million punching its way to the $100 million mark.

The Upside

With a virtually static top 5 the Kevin Heart comedy drama is at 2 this week with a $12.2 million weekend on its third outing, this brings the films total gross to $61.1 million.

Aquaman

Still pulling in audiences on its 6th weekend to the tune of $7.3 million is the DC monster which boosts its total US gross to $316.5 million.

The Kid Who Would Be King

Entering the box office at number 4 this week, and the only change in the top 5, is the fantasy adventure from director Joe Cornish and starring Rebecca Ferguson.

While not pulling in the audience like the studio would have liked it still manages a $7.2 million opening weekend.

Spider-Man Into The Spider-Verse

The award winning animated feature takes $6.15 million on its 7th weekend boosting its US total to $169 million.

24th April 2018

Dwayne Johnson in his monster flick Rampage managed to stay top of the UK box office this weekend in what was a very quiet window.

The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society3 things happened this weekend in the UK which led to a very quiet time at the box office, the weather was very good, there were major sporting events on TV and nothing new really came out in anticipation for Avengers Infinity War next weekend.

This led to Rampage remaining the top film with £1.4 million which brings the film total in the UK to £6.4 million.

Climbing back to number 2 is A Quiet Place with just over a million pounds which brings the films total UK gross to £8.2 million.

Highest new film of the week is the Mike Newell directed The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society which enters at 3 with £825,777.

This mean that for the first time in a while only the top 2 films took over a million over the weekend.

Holdovers finish off the top 5 with Ready Player One at number 4 and Peter Rabbit at number 5, they have a total UK gross of £15.4 and £30.8 respectively.

15th March 2017

It was a claws out at this weekends box office as Kong Skull Island and Logan fought it out for the top spot and the new relese of Kong won the battle.

From the same production team that brought us Godzilla in 2014 Kong Skull Island is set in the same universe and is set to start a "monsters" universe similar to that of the Marvel and DC cinematic universes.

Kong opens similar to Godzilla with just over £6 million, but the film was far better received than Godzilla with the critics with a surprise amount of praise for the monster film.

Godzilla went on to gross £17 million in the UK and there is nothing to suggest this wont do similar if not better.

Logan falls into second place this week with £3.8 million after a single week at the top, this brings the films total gross to £16 million after 10 days of release.

This means that on its second weekend the film is already the best of the solo Wolverine movies and it still has plenty of milage left.

A couple of interesting things to note this week, if the chart were taken on a Monday - Sunday then Logan would have still been the top film.

Also Moulin Rouge which is on a Secret Cinema run at the moment and is number 13 on the weekend chart would have been number 4 with £2 million for the week.

There are no other new released in the top 10 this week but Elle makes a new entry at number 11 with £0.2 million and Dancer is new at 12 also with £0.2 million.

Longest run this week is Lion with 8 weeks on the chart and highest total grossing movie is Sing with £28 million.

10th January 2017

The debut of video game adaptation Assasins Creed produces the first new number one film of 2017 knocking off Rogue One: A Star Wars Story after 3 weeks at the top.

Starring Michael Fassbender as the time travelling assassin the film based on a video game debuts at the top with £5.2 million including previews.

As a star one one of the biggest movie franchises around this is by no means the highest debut gross for Fassbender, but it is good for a non franchise debut, for director Justin Kurzel it is his best grossing film to date.

Its unclear if Assassins Creed will continue to do well, it got bad reviews from the press and the audience for these films is usually front loaded so it could drop sharp in the coming weeks.

Falling from the top after 3 weeks is Rogue One although the film enjoyed a decent fourth week gross of £3.2 million which brings its total gross in the UK to £59.6.

The film wont reach the heights of The Force Awakens but this is still a great total gross, also worth a note is that the Monday - Sunday gross of £7.6 million would have put it at number 1.

Also making its debut this week is A Monster Calls at 3 with £2 million and Silence at number 4 with £1.5 million.

Rogue One is the highest total grossing film around at the moment and the longest running film this week is Storks at number 15 which has been around now for 10 weeks.

9th October 2016

After 4 weeks at the top of the UK home video chart Captain America is toppled by Alice Through The Looking Glass which makes its debut.

Alice Through The Looking Glass is the sequel to Tim Burtons Alice in Wonderland and was released on 5th August 2016. The film entered the UK box office at number 2 with a debut gross of £2.2 million, it failed to remove X Men Apocalypse which remained at the top.

The film did reasonably well on the box office hand hung around for 7 weeks on the top 15 before spending another 15 weeks hanging around the lower reaches of the box office.

The film made an excellent £9.9 million is total UK grosses, although compared to Alice in Wonderland which made £42 million its relatively small.

This is the first week os Disney having a big video sale and as always they have a bog impact on the video chart with 5 re-entries inside the top 10, and if you count Marvel and live action remakes they have 8 of the top 10 films.

Also new this week is Money Monster at number 9, When Marnie Was There at number 13 and Mothers Day at number 14.
