There were three new entries at the top of this weeks UK box office in the shape of Venom, A Star Is Born and Johnny English Strikes Again, but it was Sony's Villain Hero film which took top honors.

Johnny English Strikes Again

Venom

The Tom Hardy starring film dominated what was a busy weekend at the UK box office with an £8 million debut which is good for a Marvel movie in the Spider-Man universe, and only a million off that of Spider-Man Homecoming from last year.

This of course is not from the MCU despite leaning heavily on the look and feel of a typical Marvel film, but as with Suicide Squad from last year this proves that villains can hold their own in a movie despite poor reviews.

Johnny English Stikes Again

The third in the Johnny English series of film and it looks like the Rowan Atkinson starring James Bond Spoof has lost none of its appeal as it makes its debut with £4.1 million which is in the same ball park as the other 2.

Both the other 2 films went on to make in the £20 million region and we would expect this one to do very similar business as its appealing to the same audience, this film has got less favourable reviews though.

A Star Is Born

It was a very fine margin but Johnny English just beat out A Star Is Born as the Bradley Cooper directed and starring film takes the third spot this week with a £4.1 million debut.

The House With A Clock In Its Walls

Three weeks on the box office now and the Jack Black starring film takes £900,00 over the weekend to boost its total UK gross to £6.8 million.

Night School

Taking a large tumble this week and finishing off the top 5 the Kevin Hart romantic comedy takes £860,000 to boost its 2 week UK gross to £3.1 million.

Incredibles 2

Having been on the box office for 13 weeks the Pixar animated comedy has taken an incredible £55.7 million making it the third highest grossing film of 2018.
