News from around the web

Warner Bros. have today started a trend which could see an significant dent to cinema and Box Office figures forever by announcing that their 2021 film releases will go to HBO Max the same day as theatrical, but only in America.

Its only in America at the moment, as HBO Max is only available there, and although they have specially said 2021 at the moment if it works and makes them money it will likely be forever.

Wonder Woman 1984

Box office figures this year have been poor to non-existent because of the pandemic, and they will effect the early part of 2021 at least which is why Warner have made this announcement, but if it proves successful then it is bound to last.

Disney are likely to announce something similar at they have their Disney+ platform which is proving to be popular, and with many anticipated movies, including the Marvel Universe Black Widow, set for 2021, many of which have been pushed from 2020, they also have a busy release schedule in the coming year.

Dune

Wonder Woman 1984 is a 2020 movie which is getting a day and date release on Christmas day 2020 and will be joined in 2021 by the likes of The Suicide Squad and Dune, along with the as yet untitled The Matrix 4.

Cinema has a long hard road ahead, and the new trend suggest that just maybe we wont ever have a box office like we have enjoyed in the past, sad time indeed.

There was little doubt that the new Spider-Man movie would remain at the top of the UK box office on its second weekend of release with only Annabelle Comes Home making a new entry on the top 5.

Spider-Man: Far From Home

The last film in the phase 3 of the MCU remains at the top of the UK box office for a second weekend with a gross of £4.3 Million.

This puts the films total UK gross at £22.5 Million which is well ahead of the films predecessors £16.8 Million after 2 weeks.

In fact the film is on par with Spider-Man 3 which is the top grossing Spidey film at this stage of release.

Toy Story 4

The animated sequel from Pixar is at 2 this week with a weekend take of £3.8 Million.

This puts the films total UK gross at &42.5 Million after 4 weeks of release and is the second highest grossing film of the year behind Avengers: Endgame.

The film is also the highest total grossing movie on the box office this week (outside of Casino Royale on its Secret Cinema run).

Annabelle Comes Home

The new film from The Conjuring Universe enters the UK box office at number 3 this week with £2.2 Million.

This is good for a film from the horror franchise and is the highest opening film from the Annabelle trology.

Yesterday

Danny Boyles Beatle influenced film is at 4 this week with a gross of £1 Million pushing the films total to £8.1 Million.

Aladdin

The Disney Live action movie has been a bit of a surprise hit and this week is at number 5 with £355,707.

This puts the films total UK gross at £35 Million and its the fourth biggest hit of the year so far.

The Matrix

Making a return to the UK box office for its 20th anniversary is the ground breaking movie from 1999 from the Wachowski siblings.

The film is presented in a brand new 4K restoration and takes £163,812 this weekend, the other 2 films in the series were also released in 4K restoration prints.

Rocketman

The Elton John films has the longest run on the chart this weekend with 8 weeks and has a total UK gross of £22.8 Million.

As expected the movie version of Mrs. Browns Boys took the top spot at the UK box office, and with quite a strong margin over the rest.

On it's debut weekend Mrs. Brown's Boys D'Movie took an incredible £4.3 million, far higher than expected and proving that the Irish sit-com has quite a following.

I suspect that this is a fairly front loaded event and we could see it fall quite sharply, I dont think it has the lasting appeal of movie like The Inbetweeners Movie.

Falling to the runner up spot this week is The Fault in our stars which made £1.7 million from the weekend bringing it's 10 day gross to £6.7 million.

Other new film to chart this week are:
Chef at 5
How to Train Your Drans 2 (still only on previews) at 6
Walking on Sunshine at 7
Cold in July at 11
Ek Villain at 12
Punjab 1984 at 13

This time last year Despicable Me 2 hit the top of the box office on it's debut week of release, it would go on to be the top film in the UK of 2013, it knocked Man of Steel into 2nd place.

Five years ago Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was still the top film in the UK and Year One with Jack Black was the highest new film at 3.

Ten years ago it was still Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban at the top while the top new film of the week was Tom Hanks on Lady Killers at 4.

Fifteen years ago Brendan Fraser made a big screen comeback in The Mummy which debuted at the top of the box office knocking The Matrix into the runner up spot after only a week.

There were a trio of big new releases this week and as expected The Fault in Our stars hit the top, the other two didn't perform any where near expectations.

Based on the novel of the same name The Fault in Our Stars is a teenage love story and a tragedy. Directed by Josh Boone who previously directed Stuck in Love from 2003 and starring Shailene Woodley.

Taking £3.4 million from the weekend it knocks 22 Jump Street into the number 2 spot after 2 weeks at the top, Jump Street has taken £12.7 million to date.

Under performing and new at 6 this week is the Clint Eastwood directed Jersey Boys. Taking just £415,608 on it's debut this could be set to be one of Eastwood's worst performing films.

Also not doing as well as expected is Kevin Costner's return to the big screen in 3 Days to Kill. The McG directed film only managed £324,560 over the weekend.

This time last year Man of Steel kept it's place at the top leaving World War Z to debut in the runner up spot.

Five years ago Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen made a debut at the top knocking off The Hangover from it's debut position at the top.

Ten years ago Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban stayed at the top leaving Mean Girls to make it's debut at three with The Day After Tomorrow staying at 2.

Fifteen years ago The Matrix was refusing to shift off the top and the highest new film was Cruel Intentions at three.

Despite the threat of World War Z at UK multiplexes last weekend the Man of Steel manages to hold himself at the top.

Superman entered it's second weekend of release in a good position with after a strong opening weekend and managed a good £5 million take which not only kept it at the top but also brings it's total to over £21 million.

Entering this week in the runner up spot is Brad Pitt fighting Zombies in World War Z which took £4.5 million, coming close to Superman.

As I predicted World War Z wasn't strong enough to knock Man of Steel from the top spot.

Last year Lincoln was new at the top, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter that is, debuting on it's first week of release knocking Men in Black 3 into the runner up spot.

Five years ago The Hulk was still the top film on it's second week of release while British indie film Adulthood was the top new film at 4.

Ten years ago sequel 2 Fast 2 Furious was new at the top of the chart knocking The Matrix Reloaded into second place.

Fifteen years ago Nicolas Cage and Meg Ryan were at the top with City of Angels displacing The Wedding Singer from the top.
