Movie story - Free Guy
Are video games real? Free City is an open world ono-line game like Grand Theft Auto or Fortnite and Guy (Ryan Reynolds) is one of the world non-player character (or NPC, a character that humans cant play with) who is working as a simple bank teller in the game.

Thanks to some programmers who inserted a bit of code into the game Guy becomes aware of his world being a video game and sees an opportunity to become the hero, instead of a nobody.

With the developers wanting to shut the game down Guy must race against the odd to stop this from happening.

News from around the web

Anticipation was high for the much delayed 25th Bond movie, and the opening weekend gross didn't disappoint and it took most of this weekends box office and produced the highest weekend take since Avengers: Endgame in 2019.

There was one other new release on the UK box office this weekend, Indian threequel movie Chal Mera Putt 3 made its debut at number 6 with £192,957.

UK box office QuickView

  • Number 1 - No Time To Die (1st weekend)
  • Highest debut - No Time To Die (@1)
  • Longest run - The Croods: A New Age and Space Jam: A New Legacy (10 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - No Time To Die (£25.9 Million)

UK box office top 5 weekend breakdown 1st - 3rd October 2021

No Time to Die

It was always going to be a big first weekend for the much delayed 25th James Bond movie, and the last starring Daniel Craig, but there is a suggestion that it actually beat expectation as the movie makes its UK debut with £25.9 Million.

This 3 day (Friday - Sunday) gross is bigger than both Skyfall and SPECTRE (although SPECTRE officially had a 7 day opening of over £40 Million).

The movie has instantly become the top movie of 2021 in the UK beating the £20 Million of Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway.

It's also worth noting that the success and pent up anticipation for this movie effected the rest of the box office quite negatively as the movie took 91% of all money spent at the box office this weekend, meaning that (less than) 1 in every 10 tickets sold was NOT for this movie.

This will certainly get people back in the habbit of going to the cinema again and unlike when Warner release Tenet this time last year, people are ready to go back to cinemas now.

Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

After 4 weeks at the top it is perhaps time for the Marvel superhero to give up the top spot, and as the top movie and this are attracting a similar audience this has suffered quite a bit as the movie take £779,077, a drop of 50% over last weekend.

This gives the movie a 5 week total of £19.6 Million and its the 3rd top movie of 2021 in the UK.

Free Guy

The Ryan Reynolds starring smash hit comedy action movie sits tight at number 3 this weekend with £270,266, a 51% drop, and its largest since relese.

This gives the movie a total gross of £16.5 Million after 8 weeks of release and its the 5th top movie of 2021.

The Paw Patrol Movie

The kids favourite dogs climb back up the box office from number 7 to number 4 this weekend with a gross of £251,511, an incredible 15% increase over last weekend.

The movie has now taken £8.1 Million over 8 weeks of release.

The Many Saints of Newark

Falling hard this weekend is the prequel movie to The Sopranos which takes £237,150 on its second weekend, a massive 75% drop over last weekend, this gives the movie a total UK gross of £1.5 Million.

Superhero movie Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings stays put at the top of the UK box office this week making it four weeks consecutively for the Marvel movie.

Highest new film of the weekend is The Sopranos prequel movie The Many Saints of Newark which makes its debut at number 2 while also inside the top 5 is documentary Oasis Knebworth 1996.

Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

The UK cinema scene is starting to show signs of a total recovery and the Marvel superhero movie has to date shown that people are going back into the cinema.

This weeks the movie takes £1.5 Million at the box office which is a 34% drop over last week, this gives the movie a total UK gross of £18.2 Million.

This puts the movie at number 3 on the top movies of 2021 and will soon overtake Black Widow and Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway to potentially be the top movie of the year, although with the release of No Time To Die this weekend it may not get there!

The Many Saints of Newark

The movie is the top new film of the week at number 2 taking £945,319 on its debut weekend.

North American box office top 5 breakdown 24th - 26th September 2021

Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

The incredible success of Shang-Chi has given the US and global box office a real boost and has shown the studios that there is still life in cinema despite the strong figures shown by streaming over the long global lockdowns during the pandemic.

This week the Marvel movie takes $13.2 Million on its fourth weekend of release, a 39% drop over last weekend.

This gives the movie a total US gross of $196.4 Million, and the movie has now taken Black Widow at the top grossing movie in the US in 2021, the movie will pass $200 Million by next weekend giving the film another milestone, but there is plenty of competition around the corner so the movie will start its decline from next weekend.

Dear Evan Hanson

Making its debut at number 2 this weekend is music picture directed by Stephen Chbosky which takes $7.5 Million on its first weekend on the box office.

The movie has a niche market but has done well considering it potential audience, and recent similar movies like The Prom and Everybody's Talking About Jamie have gone direct to streaming.

Free Guy

The smash hit action comedy falls to number 3 this weekend but its success has been well received during the re-opening of cinemas, the movie takes $4.12 Million this weekend, a very slim 19% drop over last week.

The Shawn Levy directed movie has now taken $114.1 Million over its 7 weeks of release, it is currently the 6th top movie of 2021 in North America.

Candyman

The horror movie remake falls to number 4 this weekend with $2.5 Million, an average 29% drop, giving the film a $56.8 Million total over its 5 weeks of release.

Cry Macho

Clint Eastwoods latest movie falls to number 5 on its second weekend of release with $2.1 Million weekend, a large 52% drop, giving the movie an $8.3 Million US total.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings remains at the top of the global box office for an incredible fourth weekend just about keeping Dune at number 2 for a second week.

Musical picture Dear Evan Hanson is the top new movie of the weekend at number 5, but this is quite impressive as it was only released in 2 countries.

Global box office QuickView

  • Number 1 - Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (4th weekend)
  • Highest debut - Dear Evan Hanson (@5)
  • Longest run - Free Guy (7 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings ($363 Million)

Global box office top 5 breakdown weekend 24th - 26th September 2021

Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Four weeks in and a fourth weekend at the top for the Marvel superhero movie which this weekend takes $27.2 Million from 45 counties, a 35% drop over last weekend.

The movie has now taken $363.3 Million over its 4 weeks of release and is the fourth highest grossing global movie of 2021.

Dune

Dune tried to take Shang-Chi this weekend but did quite get there as the movie takes $26.3 Million over the weekend, a small 29% drop over last week.

The movie is still only released in 32 countries with many big markets yet to come, the movie to date has taken $76.5 Million, and with markets like the UK and US still to come this has a long way to go.

Cloudy Mountain

The smash hit Chinese movie is still only released in its home terretory and this weekend remains at number 3 with $10.5 Million over the weekend, this is a 43% drop over last weekend.

The movie has a $58.2 Million total so far.

Free Guy

The smash hit action comedy remains at number 4 this weekend with $9.2 Million from 49 countries, a 32% drop over last weekend.

Despite the fact that the movie is now on its decent now the movie has been on the top 5 for 7 weeks and has taken $317 Million and is the 6th top movie of 2021 globally.

Dear Evan Hansen

Highest new entry of the week is the music drama which makes its debut at 5 with $7.5 Million, fairly good considering it is only released in 2 countries.

The movie has potential limited appeal and recent movies in the same genre like The Prom found its audience on streaming rather than in cinemas.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings made it 3 weeks at the top of the UK box office as the MCU's latest hero has no challange from new releases.

The highest new movie of the week is the Polish movie Small World from director Patryk Vega which made its debut at number 10 with a weekend gross of £106,493.

Sadly with a top 15 which grossed only £5.1 Million this is the lowest total gross for the UK box office in many a week, I think this is just pent up demand for the upcoming Bond movie No Time To Die which should give cinemas a massive boost and get people back in the habit of going cinemas after the pandemic closures.

UK box office QuickView

  • Number 1 - Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (3rd weekend)
  • Highest debut - Small World (@10)
  • Longest run - The Croods: A New Age (10 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (£15.8 Million)

Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Three weeks at the top for Disney's latest character in the MCU as the superhero movie takes £2.3 Million over the weekend, a very reasonable 34% drop over last weekend.

The movie has now taken £15.8 Million over its 3 weeks at the top and is the 4th top movie of 2021.

The movie has done well for a new character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and has so far beaten Captain America: The First Avenger and is on its way to beating Iron Man and Ant-Man.

Free Guy

Starring Ryan Reynolds this has been the sleeper hit of the summer and this week the video game inspired action comedy pulls in another £676,999, only 2% down on last weekend!

The movie is still at number 2 this weekend and after 6 weeks has spent 3 weeks at the top and 3 weeks at number 2.

The movie has a UK total gross of £15.3 Million and is the 5th top movie of 2021.

Also staying put this week, at number 4, is the horror movie sequel/retelling which takes £323,350 over the weekend, a 23% drop, giving the movie a total gross of £4.3 Million.

The children's TV favourite goes back into the top 5 this week as the animated dogs climb 1 place to number 5 this week with £263,167, a 19% drop.
