Highest chart position: 1
Weeks on box office: 8
The next film on the DC Universe schedule from Warner Bros. is Wonder Woman 1984 and today we get the first trailer for the movie.
The sequel movie is directed by Patty Jenkins and stars Gal Gadot and Chris Pine who are this time joined by Kristen Wiig.
The new trailer is true in the Wonder Woman style and shows plenty of the super hero in action, it also gives us a good look at Chris Pine although doesn't give away how he is being brought back considering his fate in the original movie and the fact its based 40 years later.
The original film did fantastic business and took over $820 Million globally so this will be looking to cross the $1 Billion mark, especially given the recent success of Joker.
The film is released in the UK on 5th June 2020.
Two major new releases made their debuts on the UK box office this weekend as Shazam! from the Warner Bros. DC Universe stable did good business and horror film Pet Sematary did OK!
Making its debut at the top of the Uk box office Shazam! makes a good £4 million debut, lower than other super hero movies but for a little known character not bad.
In comparison it is lower than recent origin films Wonder Woman , Aquaman and Captain Marvel but about the same as Marvels Ant-Man who was similarly fairly unknown.
Dumbo falls into second place on its second weekend of release with the Tim Burton movie taking £3.5 million over the weekend pushing its total UK gross to £12 million.
A new adaptation of Stephen Kings horror novel enters the box office at number 3 this week with £1.5 million, perhaps a little lower than expected considering the hype.
The original adaptation took half a million pound on its debut in 1989 which adjusted for inflation is about £1.5 million, the same, that film went on to make £1 million (£3 million adjusted) so expect similar from this version.
The Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson starring movie takes £1.2 million on its 5th weekend of release pushing its total UK gross to £34.6 million.
With a high turnaround on the charts at the moment the films is not only the highest grossing movie on the UK top 15 but also the longest running film on the charts at 5 weeks.
One for the kids at number 5 this week as Peppa Pig returns to the box office for the first time since 2017 where it takes just under a million pound on its debut.
The start of the Christmas holiday weekend and Warner Bros. take the top of the chart with their latest DC Universe film Aquaman.
Warners DC Universe has had a hard time of things in recent years despite the success of Wonder Woman last year, but things are taking a upward look with their latest origin story feature for Aquaman.
The film flies into number 1 with a weekend take of $67.4 million, and if you add Thursday previews this takes the total to $72 million.
For Disney there is a lot riding on this film as they are making a sequel to a beloved movie from 1964 with a fresh actress taking over the lead role.
Critics have been kind and some have loved the film, but there have been some negative reviews, the film misses the top spot but still manages to take $22,2 million on its debut weekend and $31 million with previews.
Taking a departure from the usual Transformers movie this origins movie takes the franchise in a new direction and from what the critics are saying its better for it.
The Travis Knight directed film takes $21 million on its debut weekend of release.
Second weekend for the Spider-Man animation and the film falls from the top spot to number 4 with $16.7 million to bring its total to $64.8 million.
The Clint Eastwood directed and starring movie falls to number 5 this week with $9.3 million taking its US total to $35 million.
Following the lacklustre performance of Justice League Warner Bros. are releasing Aquaman on 14th December to see if it can boost the DCEU similar to Wonder Woman in 2017.
The film has been given a 12A rating by the BBFC for its UK release for moderate violence, scenes of sustained threat and the film has a runtime of 143 minutes (2 hrs 13 minutes).

December 14th is nearly upon us and today we get the final trailer for the DC Universe Aquman.
A lot is riding on this film, in fact you could say the future of Warner Bros. DC comics adaptations, but lets not let that spoil this final trailer.
Weighing in at just over 2 minutes the trailer gives a few new hints at the story but we'll have to wait until the release to see if this is a Wonder Woman or a Justice League.
