2nd May 2019

After the success of The Secret Life of Pets there was inevitably going to be a sequel and Illumination delivers that on 24th May 2019.

U Certificate

The original looked at what a pet does when their owners are not in the house, and this sequel promises to expand the premise even further.

Directed by Chris Renaud The Secret Life Of Pets 2 has been given a U rating by the BBFC for mild threat, violence, very mild bad language and it has an official run time of 86 minutes (1 hour 26 minutes).

30th October 2018

The bio-pic of Freddy Mercury and Queen makes its debut at the top of the UK box office knocking A Star Is Born to the runner up spot after 2 weeks at number 1.

A Star Is Born

Bohemian Rhapsody

Taking over at the top with a fantastic opening weekend of £9.5 the film starring Rami Malek wowed UK audiences but didn't please all critics.

This opening puts the film in the top 100 opening weekends in the UK ever at number 90, one below The Secret Life Of Pets and one above Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

For the stars this will be by far their biggest movie to date, for director Bryan Singer it needs to beat all the X-Men movies he has directed the highest of which is X-Men Days Of Future Past, but don't rule it our just yet.

A Star Is Born

Being dumped down from the top to the number 2 position is the Lady Gaga starring movie which takes £2.1 million on its 4th weekend of release.

This brings the films total UK gross to and very good £19.2 million, the 14th highest grossing movie of 2018.


The Jamie Lee Curtis starring movie topped the charts in many places around the globe last week, except in the UK where it landed at number 2, this week it falls to number 3 with £1.6 million to brings its total to £5.8 million after 2 weeks.


Hanging on for another weekend the family animation takes £1.5 million for a UK gross of £7.7 million.

Johnny English Strikes Again

The Rowan Atkinson comedy closes out the top 5 at the film beins to fall down the chart but takes £1.5 million on its 3rd weekend for a £14.1 million total.

18th July 2017

The last in the trilogy of Planet of The Apes prequel movies opens at the top of the Uk box office this week knocking Spider-Man Homecoming off after just a single week.

War For The Planet of The Apes which stars Woody Harrelson and Any Serkis hits the top with a weekend gross of £7.1 million, a very good gross for a critically praised film.

The trilogy of films has been constant on its debut and this does better than Rise but not quite at good as Dawn's £8 million debut.

With this in mind I'd expect this to end its run in the £30 million region.

Spider-Man Homecoming falls to number 3 this week leapfrogging over Despicable Me 3 by the tightest of margins with a £3.7 million weekend.

This brings the films total gross to £16 million after 10 days of release and is looking set to match the first Spider-Man film from 2002.

Despicable Me at number 2 took £3.8 million and has now grossed £26 million from 3 weekends of release.

For the Monday - Sunday week the top film would have been Spider-Man with a £7.4 million weekly gross with Apes second and Despicable Me 3 third.

For the third weekend running The Boss Baby is the longest running film with 15 weeks and the highest grossing with £28 million.

Spider-Man joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the first time in Spider-Man Homecoming and with the help of Iron Man tops the Uk box office.

The new re-boot (the third for the franchise) stars Tom Holland and reaches the top with a £9.3 million opening weekend.

In terms of previous Spider-Man films this is fairly standard with only Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man doing far better.

Despicable Me 3 falls to second place but still manages a £5 million weekend which brings the films total gross to nearly £20 million.

With the school summer holidays fast approaching expect this film to hang around for a while.
