UK weekend box office top 5 breakdown 17th - 19th December 2021
The anticipation for the next movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been sky high over the last few months, especially as rumours began to circulate that there would be appearances from 2 previous generations of Spider-Man in Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire.
The movie hit UK movie theatres on Thursday, and in the face of the pandemic the movie packed cinemas up and down the country in a way not seen in a few years.
The film took an eye watering £31.8 Million over its opening frame, a figure which is even higher than 2021's other much anticipated return No Time To Die which took £25.9 Million.
The movie is now the third top opener behind Avengers: Endgame from 2019 and Star Wars: The Force Awakens from 2015.
The movie also instantly became the second top grossing movie of 2021 in the UK, it won't quite beat the 25th Bond movie as t he top movie of 2021 but ultimately it probably will beat its total gross and has a chance to become only the third movie in history to break the £100 Million mark at the UK box office.
To top things off it also took a lion share of the money spent at the box office this weekend with a massive 91%.
The movie about the Big Red Dog called Clifford held up fairly well in its second weekend and remained at number 2 with £766,122, a 41% drop.
