The top 15 movies in the UK this week failed to take over £100,000 as much of the UK is experiencing new lockdowns and many cinemas will have been closed on Friday, Christmas Day.
Wonder Woman 1984 retained its position at the top of the box office with ease and is responsible for 77% of this weeks box office total takings and as there were no new releases we have a fairly static top 5.
Worthy of note this week is that the number 15 movie, Michael Ball & Alfie Boe: Back Together, only took £548 and the movie with the lowest weekly from was Peter Duncan Presents Jack And The Beanstalk which dropped 60% from last weekend.
