No surprises at all that the 25th Bond movie, and Daniel Craigs last, is still at the top on its second weekend, in fact no studio has released anything that could even challenge the movie, that comes next weekend.
The movie takes £15.2 Million on its second weekend which is a resonable 41% drop over its debut, this gives the movie a total UK gross of £52.6 Million.
It's confusing looking at how this compares with other Daniel Craig Bond movies, its not as good as SPECTRE, but in reality that movie had been out for 14 days by this point, its about the same as Skyfall but that movies wasn't released during a pandemic that closed cinemas for nearly 6 months, but its far better than Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale, one thing is for certain, the Daniel Craig era has been the most successful.
The movie is by far the top film of 2021 in the UK.
A sequel to the 2019 animated hit The Addams Family was always going to happen, and after a difficult year for cinema the sequel movie makes its debut at number 2 this weekend.
The movie takes a reasonable £2 Million on its debut, which is very similar to the originals debut at the same time of year in 2019.
Marvels smash hit movie falls to number 3 this weekend with a gross of £558,407, a slim 28% drop considering the movie is on its 6th weekend of release.
The total UK gross for the film sits at £20.5 Million, the second highest grossing movie of 2021 in the UK.
Marvel are set to have another good year at the box office after having no new movies for over a year, Black Widow did well a few months ago, and flowing this will be Eternals in a few weeks and Spider-Man: No Way Home in December both of which are setting themselves up to be massive holiday movies.
The animated kids film continues to do well at the box office and this weekend stays put at number 4 with £125,902, a 50% drop over last weekend, giving the movie a total UK gross of £8.3 Million over 9 weeks of release.
The prequel movie to The Sopranos stays put at number 5 this weekend with £125,404, a 47% drop, giving the movie a UK total of £1.8 Million after 3 weeks.

Anticipation was high for the much delayed 25th Bond movie, and the opening weekend gross didn't disappoint and it took most of this weekends box office and produced the highest weekend take since Avengers: Endgame in 2019.

It was always going to be a big first weekend for the much delayed 25th James Bond movie, and the last starring Daniel Craig, but there is a suggestion that it actually beat expectation as the movie makes its UK debut with £25.9 Million.
This 3 day (Friday - Sunday) gross is bigger than both Skyfall and SPECTRE (although SPECTRE officially had a 7 day opening of over £40 Million).
The movie has instantly become the top movie of 2021 in the UK beating the £20 Million of Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway.
It's also worth noting that the success and pent up anticipation for this movie effected the rest of the box office quite negatively as the movie took 91% of all money spent at the box office this weekend, meaning that (less than) 1 in every 10 tickets sold was NOT for this movie.
This will certainly get people back in the habbit of going to the cinema again and unlike when Warner release Tenet this time last year, people are ready to go back to cinemas now.
After 4 weeks at the top it is perhaps time for the Marvel superhero to give up the top spot, and as the top movie and this are attracting a similar audience this has suffered quite a bit as the movie take £779,077, a drop of 50% over last weekend.
This gives the movie a 5 week total of £19.6 Million and its the 3rd top movie of 2021 in the UK.
The Ryan Reynolds starring smash hit comedy action movie sits tight at number 3 this weekend with £270,266, a 51% drop, and its largest since relese.
This gives the movie a total gross of £16.5 Million after 8 weeks of release and its the 5th top movie of 2021.
The kids favourite dogs climb back up the box office from number 7 to number 4 this weekend with a gross of £251,511, an incredible 15% increase over last weekend.
The movie has now taken £8.1 Million over 8 weeks of release.
Falling hard this weekend is the prequel movie to The Sopranos which takes £237,150 on its second weekend, a massive 75% drop over last weekend, this gives the movie a total UK gross of £1.5 Million.

This is one of the biggest debut weekends in China and is a real sign that the Chinese public are going back to the movies, it out preforms No Time To Die by over $100 Million.

The long delayed 25th James Bond movie finally makes its debut and lands at number 2 on the global box office with a very impressive $119.1 Million from 54 locations.
The movie is still to open in many bog markets including North America and China, so this is just the start of its long box office run helping to bring people back to cinemas.
Getting a release in just 2 territories this week the superhero villain movie from the Spider-Man universe lands on the global box office at 3 with $103 Million.
$90 Million of this was in North America where is landed at number 1, the movie is still to be released in most of the world but the sequel movie has made an impressive start.

22nd September 2021
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.
