Onward
In the UK cinemas have started to re-open, they are not back to full capacity but they are letting people in a taking money, so what is happeneing on the first weekend back?

Things are actually re-starting right where they left off and Onward is the top film in the county, again, but there are no new releases and a bunch of 'classic' film on the chart.

Here is a rundown of the top 5 UK movies last weekend.

Onward

Pixars latest animated fantasy was the top film over the weekend 13th - 15th March, the last weekend before cinemas had to close because of COVID-19, and the first weekend back, some 3 months+ later its still at the top!

To show how slow things are and that cinemas are not filling to capacity the movie has taken £21,626 over the weekend.

This puts the films total gross to £5.2 Million 4 weeks (sort of) after release.

Trolls World Tour

Trolls World Tour

The most controversial film over the COVID-19 close down, the Universal movie was to get a full theatrical release at the end of March, but because of the close down was released onto streaming.

Universal saw this as a good move and announced that they would be releasing many of their films to streaming at the same time as its theatrical release in the future which angered many cinema chains including AMC which owns the UK chain ODEON who vowed not to carry any future Universal releases, although with AMC now struggling to stay open who knows what will happen?

The movie is showing in cinemas and this week is sort of the highest new film with a weekend gross of £17K putting the total gross in cinemas to £25.7K.

Bad Boys For life

The buddy cop movie starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence is at 3 this week with £16K and a total of £16 Million after 10 weeks on the chart.

The Greatest Showman

The first 'classic' movie on the box office is at 4 this week with the Hugh Jackman 2017 smash hit which made the top of the chart in early 2018.

The movie takes £15K over the weekend and has taken £49 Million after 22 weeks on the chart.

1917

The years top grossing film is at number 5 this week with £12.7K putting the films total gross to £43.7 Million after 2 weeks on the chart.
