21st March 2019

The British fishing based movie Fisherman's Friends makes a good new entry at number 2 but Captain MArvel is too strong on its second weekend of release and remains at the top.

Fishermans Friends

Captain Marvel

The hit Marvel movie starring Brie Larson remains at the top of the UK box office for a second weekend taking £6.6 million.

This pushed the female led super hero movie to £23.6 million after 10 days in cinemas (including previews).

Fisherman's Friends

The British films directed by Chris Foggin enters the box office at number 2 this week with a debut gross of £1.2 million.

The film has got very good reviews across the board which could hold the film in good sted and see it a staple of the box office for the coming weeks.

What Men Want

The mind reading comedy starring Taraji P. Henson and Tracy Morgan enters the UK box office this week at 3 with a gross of £836,612.

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

Falling to number 4 this week the second brick movie takes £643,623 on its fourth weekend of release.

The film is taking a long slide down the chart and considering how its total gross of £17.5 million is far lower than the first film this will work in its favour.

Fighting With My Family

Falling to number 5 this week is the Stephen Merchant directorial debut which has done quite well for itself and this weekend takes £632,598.

This pushes the films total UK gross to £4.6 million.

18th February 2019

The Manga live action film from director Robert Rodriguez tops the US box office this weekend on its debut knocking last weeks top film The Lego Movie 2 to number 2.

Isn't It Romantic

Alita: Battle Angel

Topping the chart on its debut weekend the film which is produced by James Cameron tops the chart with a debut weekend gross of $27.8 million.

With previews this takes the films total gross to $36.5 million.

The Lego Movie 2: The Second part

After entering the chart at the top last week the brick movie falls to number 2 this week with a weekend gross of $21.5 million.

This pushes the films total gross to $62.6 million after 10 days of release.

Isn't It Romantic

Entering the box office at number 3 on its debut release is this Rebel Wilson starring movie about a woman who appears to be in a romantic comedy.

The film takes $20.4 million for the weekend.

What Men Want

Falling to number 4 this week is the mind reading movie which takes $10.9 million to push its total gross to $36.1 million after 2 weeks of release.

Happy Death Day 2U

Finishing off the top 5 is another new release in the shape of the horror follow up to Happy Death Day which takes just under $10 million on its debut.

11th February 2019

The bricks were back in town this week in the US as The Lego Movie 2 went into cinemas and topped the chart on its debut weekend.

<span class='highlight-purple'><i>What Men Want</i></span>

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

Following in the footsteps of the $250 million grossing The lego Movie the follow up hits cinemas this week with a $35 million debut.

Worryingly this is way lower than the originals nearly $70 million opening and could mean trouble ahead for the brick movie.

What Men Want

20 years after Mel Gibson starred in What Women Want we get a female slant on the same story as Taraji P. Henson stars as a woman who can hear the thoughts of men around her.

The new comedy enters the US box office at number 2 and takes $19 million on its debut.

Cold Persuit

Despite the controversy its star Liam Neeson may have caused during the week his new film hits number 3 on the box office this week.

With a debut of $10.8 million its a fairly run of the mill opening weekend for the Irish star.

The Upside

The Kevin Hart Dramatic Comedy this week falls to number 4 with a $7.2 million weekend which takes its total to $85.8 million after 5 weeks of release.


Falling to number 5 this week is last weeks number 1 film which takes $6.4 million on its fourth week of release to take its total to just under $100 million, it should reach that milestone by next weekend.
