News from around the web

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings made it 3 weeks at the top of the UK box office as the MCU's latest hero has no challange from new releases.

The highest new movie of the week is the Polish movie Small World from director Patryk Vega which made its debut at number 10 with a weekend gross of £106,493.

Sadly with a top 15 which grossed only £5.1 Million this is the lowest total gross for the UK box office in many a week, I think this is just pent up demand for the upcoming Bond movie No Time To Die which should give cinemas a massive boost and get people back in the habit of going cinemas after the pandemic closures.
