5th March 2019

Making his solo directorial debut Stephen Merchant takes his Fighting With My Family to the top of the UK box office on its debut weekend with The Aftermath also new at 6.

The Aftermath

Fighting With My Family

Based on a true story the film was produced by Dwayne Johnson who also appears in the film and makes its debut at the top with a weekend gross of just over £2 million.

This is a typical British feel good movie similar to The Full Monty or Four Wedding And A Funeral and should hang around for quite a while on the UK box office.

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

The brick movie falls from the top after 3 weeks with a gross of £1.4 million on its fourth weekend of release.

This brings the films total UK gross to £15.8 million which is about £11 million below that of the first movie at this stage of release.

Instant Family

Falling to 3 this week but still doing well is the Mark Wahlberg starring film which takes £1.1 million on its 3rd weekend, this pushes its total gross to a respectable £8 million.

How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

This third Dragon movie falls to 4 with a gross of £1.04 million pushing its total to £17.2 million, its still the highest grossing movie released in 2019.

Green Book

Winning the Best Film Oscar and Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Mahershala Ali has pushed this film back to number 5 with a weekend take of £737,659 taking its total gross to £7.4 million.

The Aftermath

Keira Knightley's new film makes its debut at 6 this week with an opening gross of £589,965.

The Favourite

An Oscar win for Olivia Coleman pushes this film up to number 11 this week with £287,797 taking its total to £16.2 million.

Bohemian Rhapsody

19 weeks in and the Queen bio-pic is at number 12, helped probably buy the 4 Oscars it picked up including one for star Rami Malek, a £278,829 weekend takes the film to £54.2 million and the 25th highest grossing film in the UK ever.

26th February 2019

It was half term week in the UK and The second LEGO movie remained at the top for a third consecutive weekend keeping Instant Family and How To Train Your Dragon 3 to fight it out for second place in an almost static top 5.

Cold Pursuit

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

Remaining at the top of the UK box office for a third weekend the brick movie charmed audiences of the UK half term break to the tune of £2.4 million over the weekend.

The film make an incredible £6.6 million over the full week and its total gross in the UK is now £14 million.

Instant Family

Just about hanging on to the number 2 slot the Mark Wahlberg starring film takes £1.67 million over the weekend which boosts its total UK gross to a very respectable £6.4 million.

How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

Only just missing out on the number 2 slot the Dragon threequel has to make do with number 3 this week with a weekend total of £1.66 million.

On the plus side for the film with a total gross of £15.8 million it is now the highest grossing movie released in 2019.

Alita: Battle Angel

The Robert Rodriguez directed Manga live action movie remains at number 4 this week with £870,000 to boost its total UK gross to £7.7 million.

The Kid Who Would Be King

After a disappointing opening weekend last week the fantasy adventure jumps up to number 5 over the half term week to take £651.000 over the weekend.

Over the week the film actually took nearly £2 million which boosts the films total gross to nearly £2.6 million.

Cold Pursuit

Highest new film of the week is at 6, the Liam Neeson starring film makes a poor start to its chart career, maybe influenced by the comments the star made in the press run for the films.

The film debuted with a £631,000 opening weekend.

On The Basis Of Sex

Also new this week is the true story of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her fight for equal rights in the workplace which makes its debut at 8 with a gross of just shy of half a million pounds.

Bohemian Rhapsody

18 weeks in and the Queen bio-pic starring Rami Malek climbs the box office this week to number 10, its total UK gross is now £53.7 million.

12th February 2019

The follow up to 2014's hit film The Lego Movie makes its debut on the UK box offie this weekend although the 5 year gap has not been kind to the little brick movie.

Alita: Battle Angel

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Movie

Opening to a £4 million debut weekend the second lego movie has taken half that of the opening weekend of the first movie in the series.

It been 5 years since that movie caused a storm and despite the humour being very similar and the film generally getting good reviews The Batman Lego Movie and The Lego Ninjago Movie were not well received and may have damaged the brands reputation.

Alita: Battle Angel

Heavily hyped as 'from producer James Cameron' and 'directed by Robert Rodriguez' this live action Japanese cyberpunk manga hits the UK box office at number 2.

Taking £3.1 million on its debut its in the same ball park but a little below Ghost In The Shell from 2017 which had bigger star appeal but reviews weren't as good.
