UK box office QuickView

  • Number 1 - Spider-Man: No Way Home (1st weekend)
  • Highest debut - Spider-Man: No Way Home (@1)
  • Longest run - No Time To Die (12 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - No Time To Die (£96.4 Million)

UK weekend box office top 5 breakdown 17th - 19th December 2021

Spider Man: No Way Home

The anticipation for the next movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been sky high over the last few months, especially as rumours began to circulate that there would be appearances from 2 previous generations of Spider-Man in Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire.

The movie hit UK movie theatres on Thursday, and in the face of the pandemic the movie packed cinemas up and down the country in a way not seen in a few years.

The film took an eye watering £31.8 Million over its opening frame, a figure which is even higher than 2021's other much anticipated return No Time To Die which took £25.9 Million.

The movie is now the third top opener behind Avengers: Endgame from 2019 and Star Wars: The Force Awakens from 2015.

The movie also instantly became the second top grossing movie of 2021 in the UK, it won't quite beat the 25th Bond movie as t he top movie of 2021 but ultimately it probably will beat its total gross and has a chance to become only the third movie in history to break the £100 Million mark at the UK box office.

To top things off it also took a lion share of the money spent at the box office this weekend with a massive 91%.

Clifford the Big Red Dog

The movie about the Big Red Dog called Clifford held up fairly well in its second weekend and remained at number 2 with £766,122, a 41% drop.

This gives the movie a total gross of £2.3 Million after 2 weekends of release.

West Side Story

Legendary director Steven Spielberg's remake movie drops from the top to number 3 this weekend with £587,305, a 55% drop over last weekend, giving the movie a total gross of £2.9 Million after 2 weeks.

The movie is doing better midweek and if the box office chart was counted Monday to Sunday rather than Friday to Sunday it would have been second with £1,6 Million, probably a testament to its demographic.


Disneys latest movie remains at number 4 this weekend with £360,891, a 43% drop over last weekend, giving the movie a £4.7 Million total after 4 weeks on release.

House of Gucci

Falling to number 5 this week is the Ridley Scott directed movie which takes £289,040 over the weekend, a large 63% drop on its 4th weekend of release, giving the movie a total UK gross of £8 Million.

The top 15 movies in the UK this week failed to take over £100,000 as much of the UK is experiencing new lockdowns and many cinemas will have been closed on Friday, Christmas Day.

Wonder Woman 1984 retained its position at the top of the box office with ease and is responsible for 77% of this weeks box office total takings and as there were no new releases we have a fairly static top 5.

Worthy of note this week is that the number 15 movie, Michael Ball & Alfie Boe: Back Together, only took £548 and the movie with the lowest weekly from was Peter Duncan Presents Jack And The Beanstalk which dropped 60% from last weekend.

UK box office Quickview.

  • Number 1 - Wonder Woman 1984 (2nd week)
  • Highest debut - The Greatest Showman (Re-entered at 4)
  • Longest run - Honest Thief (9 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - Wonder Woman 1984 (£1,377,049)

Uk box office top 5 breakdown weekend 25th - 27th December 2020.

Wonder Woman 1984

After its vaguely successful debut last weekend the Wonder Woman sequel once again directed by Patty Jenkins stays at the top of the UK box office but with a 91% drop from last weekend giving it weekend gross of £72,674.

The movie starring Gal Gadot as the superhero has now taken £1.3 Million at the UK box office.

Home Alone

With Elf taking a tumble down the box office to number 6 the Christmas favourite from 1990 jumps up to number 2 this week with £3,840, a 93% drop from last week.

Since the movie came out in December 1990, 30 years ago, it has grossed £9.7 Million.

Come Away

Entering the chart at 4 on its debut last weekend the Brenda Chapman fantasy drama jumps to number 3 this week with £3,245, 92% down from last week, for a total gross of £77,362.

The Greatest Showman

Three years after Hugh Jackmans song and dance spectacular surprised the box office the 2017 movie gets another release and re-enters the box office at 4 this week with £3,231 giving the film total gross a boost to £49.6 Million.


Ben Falcone directs his wife Mellisa McCarthy in this comedy which jumps to number 5 this week with £2,254, 88% down from last weekend, giving the films a total gross of £142,455 after 3 weeks.

The tough year for cinemas across the UK continues but once again Warner Bros. release a major blockbuster in this market, this time the DC Universe movie Wonder Woman 1984, which after may delays in 2020 makes its debut at the top.

Also new inside the top 5 is Come Away which makes its debut at number 4 and then dropping outside the top 10 there is the cinematic showing of The Nutcracker: Bolshoi Ballet 2020 at 13 and perhaps a little disappointing the Diane Lane and Kevin Costner US hit Let Him Go at 15.

The top 15 movies is totally dominated once again by Christmas catalogue films which makes up 51% of this week chart.

Wonder Woman 1984

Warner Bros. have released 2 potential blockbusters during the pandemic, Tenet back in August which was supposed to re-invigorate the box office and now this DC Universe movie, no other studio has done this, and looking at the box office tickets you can perhaps see why!

The Wonder Woman sequel opens in the UK during a very difficult time for cinemas as a majority of the country is in a forces lockdown, and cinemas that are open can only fill to about 25% because of the pandemic which is just getting worse.

The movie opens to a weekend box office of £846,435 (since its Wednesday openeing) although this is 70% of the total weekend marketplace.

The movie gets a VOD release in the UK mid January.

Love Actually

Finishing off the top 5 is the british Christmas classic from write director Richard Curtis which takes £20,430 over the weekend, 52% down from last weekend, its total is now £36.9 Million since its 2003 release.

As cinemas start to re-open, and in some places close again, Christmas classics once again dominate the box office with the Will Farrell movie Elf remaining at the top for a second weekend.

The top new movie was the concert film of Little Mix and right behind that was Superintelligence, further down the top 15 pantomime movie Peter Duncan Presents Jack And The Beanstalk was new at 11 while Dreamland was new at 14.

The top 15 movie took a total of £627,505 which is double that of last week and with Wonder Woman 1984 set for release on Wednesday 16th December we could see some impressive numbers next weekend.
