ADVERTISMENT

Aladdin
The pull of Disney's Aladdin live action was far too great for the British public and the film stays at the top of the UK box office for a second weekend leaving Godzilla to enter the box office at number 2.

Godzilla: King Of The Monsters

Aladdin

The Guy Ritchie directed movie stays at the top with a weekend gross of £4.8 million which pushes its total UK gross to £19.7 million.

The film is doing well for a Disney live action remake although not as well as Beauty And The Beast which by its second weekend has taken nearly £40 million.

With this in mind the Genie movie should end up somewhere near the £35 million mark which should mean its Guy Ritchies top film to date and it could become Will Smiths top UK film to date.

Godzilla: King Of The Monsters

The Monster movie sequel was a favourite to hit the top of the box office this week but with a £3.5 million debut it wasn't quite good enough.

The film lands at number 2 this week which is half that of Gareth Edwards 2014 film, even more worryingly this is lower than Roland Emmerich 1998 film which landed at number 1 with £4.1 (not adjusted for inflation).

Avengers: Endgame

The Secret Life Of Pets 2

The animated comedy stays at number 3 on its second weekend with a weekend gross of £2.9 million which pushes the films total gross to £11.8 million.

The film is running below the 2016 original which had taken £16 million by its second weekend of release.

Rocketman

The Elton John bio-film falls to number 4 this weekend with a gross of £2.4 million to boost its total to £11.9 million.

Despite the good reviews the film is not doing as well as Bohemian Rhapsody although with a high grossing top 4 this has effected its chart position although the Freddy Mercury film had made almost double on its second weekend of release.

Pokémon Detective Pikachu

The Nintendo property keeps its top 5 position this week, at number 5, with a weekend gross of £664,469 which pushes its total UK gross to £12.5 million.

Avengers: Endgame

The Marvel mega hit falls to number 8 this weekend, but still only in its 6th weekend the film has taken £86.9 million.
