Space Jam: A New legacy made its debut at number 2 while The Forever Purge and The Croods: A New Age also made new entries inside the top 5.

Continuing the new releases Escape Room: Tournament of Champions just missed a place on the top 5 making its debut at 6 with £278,097 and documentary feature Summer of Soul (...Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised) was new at 10 with £62 Thousand.

UK box office QuickView

  • Number 1 - Black Widow (2nd weekend)
  • Highest debut - Space Jam: A New Legacy (@2)
  • Longest run - Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway (9 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway (£18.6 Million)

UK box office top 5 breakdown 16th - 18th July 2021

Black Widow

The Scarlett Johansson starring movie remains at the top of the UK box office for a second weekend with £1.8 Million, a quite large 74% drop from last weekend.

This gives the movie a total UK gross of £11.2 Million after 2 weeks of release and its the fourth top grossing movie of 2021 so far.

Space Jam: A New Legacy

Making its debut at number 2 this weekend is the sequel movie to 1996's Space Jam which took £1.3 Million over the weekend.

Compared to the original its far lower as the 1996 original took £4.6 Million on it's debut weekend, its a little unfair considering the global pandemic, but I would have thought this movie would have taken less regardless.

The Forever Purge

The fifth movie in the long running series makes its debut at number 3 with £720,032.

The highest grossing movie in the series is 2018's The First Purge which took £1.7 Million on its debut.

The Croods: A New Age

Another sequel hitting the box office this weekend is the animated sequel starring Nicolas Cage which makes its debut at number 4 with £696,563.

The original movie, The Croods was released in 2013 and took £5.3 Million on its debut, even considering the pandemic this is a disappointing debut for the sequel.

Fast & Furious 9

The ninth Fast movie falls to number 5, from 2, on its 4th weekend of release with a gross of £446,126, a large 59% drop.

This movie seems to be sinking faster than expected and after 4 weeks has taken £14.14 Million, although it is currently the second top grossing movie of 2021.

This gives the movie a total gross of $117.1 Million after 2 weeks of release, it is on tract to join the other recent Fast movies but because of the pandemic might not get to the heights of the top grossing in the series Fast and Furious 8.

Boss Baby 2

Top new movie of the weekend is the sequel movie to Boss Baby from 2017 which takes $17.3 Million on its debut.

The original movie was a big blockbuster and took $50 Million on its debut on its way to $175 Million, comparisons are currently unfair during the pandemic.

The Forever Purge

The fifth movie in The Purge series makes its debut at number 3 this weekend with $12.7 Million which is close to the debut weekend of The FIrst Purge from 2019, not bad considering the pandemic.

The movie series has become a firm favourite and the future of the movie could be good in the coming weeks.
