Highest chart position: 1
Weeks on box office: 13
4th July 2019
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.
Directed by Oscar winning director Danny Boyle this is loosely based on the fames Apple founder Steve Jobs biography release soon after his death
The film is out on 13th November 2015 and is much anticipated from the director who has brought us classics like Slumdog Millionaire and Trainspotting.
