With such a massive new movie no studio was going to compete against it so this is the only new movie on this weeks top 15 box office, although further down there was new entries for To Be Someone directed by Ray Burdis, The Truffle Hunters directed by Michael Dweck and Gregory Kershaw and Tove directed by Zaida Bergroth to name a few.

UK box office top 5 breakdown weekend 9th - 11th July 2021
The movie may have had to wait over a year and been delayed a number of time because of the global pandemic but the MCU returns with force and a weekend gross of £6.88 Million, it is already the 6th top movie of 2021.
This beats the highest debut of a movie during the pandemic set by Fast & Furious 9 a couple of weeks ago which was £6 Million.
The movie is also available on Disney+ with a extra fee which will damage the movie potential, by how much we will have to wait and see.
The movie has had very positive review and good word of mouth will take it forward, and co-star Florence Pugh steals the show and sets herself up for future MCU movies.
Falling from the top of the box office to number 2 is the ninth movie in The Fast Saga which this week takes £1.09 Million, a large 59% drop from last weekend.
This give the film a total UK gross of £13 Million over its 3 weeks of release and its currently the second highest grossing movie of 2021.
It seems there is no stopping Peter Rabbit as he spends his 8th week inside the top 3, this week he falls to 3 with £546,981, a slim 34% drop over last weekend.
The movie has now taken £18.3 Million over its 8 weeks of release and is the top grossing movie in the UK in 2021, so far.
Director John Krasinski's silent horror movie falls to number 4 this weekend with £261,410, a better than expected 39% drop over last weekend, this gives the movie a total UK gross of £10.9 Million and 6 weeks and place of number 3 on the top 2021 movies list.
