UK weekend box office top 5 breakdown 24th - 26th June 2022

Directed by the excellent Baz Luhrmann and starring an Oscar worthy performance by Austin Butler as Elvis the new bio-pic makes its debut at number 1.

The movie opens with a gross of £4 Million.

Two weeks at the top for the third in the sequel Jurassic series as the movie gets replaces at the top of the UK box office.

The movie takes a third weekend gross of £3.4 Million, a 40% drop over last weekend, which pushes the movies total gross to £27.1 Million.

This makes it the 5th top movie of 2022 in the UK, although it is the lowest grossing of the "world" series of Jurassic movies.

The Tom Cruise starring sequel movie falls to number 3 this weekend with £3.3 Million, a small 21% drop from last weekend, on its 5th weekend of release.

Globally the movie has just gone over the $1 Billion mark, and in the UK it has been no slouch as it crosses the £60 Million mark with a total UK gross of £63 Million.

This gives the movie the title of top movie of 2022, which I think it will retain, and it is about to break into the top 20 UK movies of all time with the district possibility of getting into the top 10 in the coming weeks.

Lightyear

Pixars much anticipated Buzz Lightyear origin movie has unfortunately been a bit of a flop of the Disney based studio as it drops to number 4 on its second weekend of release with £2.2 Million, a 38% drop over its debut last weekend.

This gives the movie a total gross after 2 weeks of £6.9 Million, not a bad 2 week gross, but this is a Pixar movie!

Finally on the top 5 this weekend is the new horror movie from director Scott Derrickson which stars Ethan Hawke and Mason Thames.

The movie takes a very reasonable £1.3 Million on its UK debut.

The new movie from Pixar and Disney, Lightyear makes its debut at number 3 this weekend as Jurassic World Dominion and Top Gun Maverick prove too strong to remove from the top 2.

Also new this weekend in the top 5 is Good Luck to You Leo Grande while at the lower end of the box office top 15 is Veetla Vishesham at number 13 with £14,003 and the re-release of the Bond movie The Spy Who Loved Me which is new at 14 with £12,843.

  • Number 1 - Jurassic World: Dominion (2nd weekend)
  • Highest debut - Lightyear (@3)
  • Longest run - Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and The Bad Guys (12 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - Top Gun: Maverick (£57 Million)

UK weekend box office top 5 breakdown 17th - 19th June 2022

Second weekend at the top for the Jurassic World sequel movie as it takes £5.7 Million over the weekend, a large 53% drop over its debut last weekend.

This gives the movie a total UK gross of £21.7 Million after 10 days of release and gives it the 8th top movie of 2022.

So far this is the lowest grossing movie of the Jurassic World series, although it is still tracking to be one of the top 5 movies of 2022 in the UK.

Despite the fact the movie was delayed over a year, and the 36 years between the two movies no one could have imagined how successful this sequel to Top Gun was going to be.

This weekend the movie takes £4.2 Million on its fourth weekend, this is a small 24% over the previous week.

The movie has now taken an incredible £57.3 Million in the UK and is showing no signs of slowing down.

The sequel movie is currently the 25th top movie in the UK, comparing it to the top movie of all time in the UK Star Wars: The Force Awakens that movie has taken £108.4 Million on its fourth weekend, so this is tracking about half that, although the 2015 Star Wars sequel had a massive built in audience, this is slow burning and using word of mouth.

The movie is the top film of 2022 in the UK where is could stay until the end of the year.

Lightyear

Top new movie of the weekend is the first Pixar movie to get a cinema release since the CGI animated studio released Onward at the start of 2020 as the world locked down to COVID-19.

This Buzz Lightyear origins movie from the Toy Story series of films makes its debut to £3.7 Million, with mixed reviews clearly damaging its box office performance.

Onward from 2020 make a similar debut but that was a world that was starting to shutdown with the public getting nervous about spending time in rooms with lots of people.

Another new movie this weekend making its debut at number 4 as Emma Thompson and Daryl McCormack star in Sophie Hyde's new movie.

The film makes its debut on the UK box office with £238,640.

The MCU sequel movie falls to number 3 this weekend with £169,578 on its 7th weekend, this gives the movie a total UK gross of £41 Million and its the 2nd top movie of 2022.

As Jurassic World: Dominion spends its 2nd weekend at the top of the US box office the new Pixar movie Lightyear makes its debut at number 2.

Meanwhile further down the box office Brian and Charles directed by Jim Archer makes its debut at number 10 with a first weekend gross of $198,000.

US weekend box office top 5 breakdown 17th - 19th June 2022

Spending a second weekend at the top of the US box office the Jurassic World sequel movie wich takes $58.6 Million, a large 59% drop over its debut last weekend.

This pushes the movies total gross afte 2 weekends of release to $249.7 Million on its way to quarter of a billion dollars.

The movie is now the fourth top grossing movie of 2022 in the US with just The Batman, Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness and Top Gun Maverick ahead of it.

Lightyear

The latest Pixar movie gets its debut in cinemas instead of the Disney+ streaming service which the last couple of movie have, and despite the mixed critical reviews the movie makes its debut at number 2 this weekend.

Taking $51 Million it is higher than the debut of the last Pixar movie to hit cinemas Onward, but that movie released in March 2020 when the country was on the verge of a national lockdown which effected its debut.

The movie has a tough road ahead considering the critical response and we could see this hit Disney+ sooner rather than later.

With a small 12% drop from last weekend the Tom Cruise starring sequel movie takes $44 Million on its 4th weekend on the box office.

This pushes the movies total US gross to an amazing $466 Million making the top grossing movie of 2022, and with the half billion mark achievable by next weekend this could remain the top movie of the year.

Interesting fact - the top 3 movies this week make the lion share of this weeks box office in the US.

The MCU sequel movie takes $4.2 Million over its 7th weekend which, a small 14% drop.

This gives the movie a total North American gross of $405 Million and it is the second top grossing movie of 2022.

The animated movie TV spin off falls to number 5 this weekend with $1.1 Million, a large 53% drop, giving the movie a US total of $29.7 Million after 4 weeks of release.

Three weeks at the top of the global box office for Jurassic World Dominion as Lightyear enters the box office at number 2 and The Witch 2: The Other One is new at number 4.

The gets a release in 44 countries and takes $85.6 Million on its debut to land at number 2, the movie has got very mixed reviews which could effect its performance going forward.

In comparison, Onward took $68 Million on its debut weekend and landed at number 1, but it was not a recognised IP and it was basically the start of the COVID-19 pandemic and people were starting to get nervous about cinemas before the world locked down.

The Tom Cruise high flying sequel has far outdone its expectation and on its 4th weekend drops to number 3 with $83 Million from 65 countries, it is a tiny 19% drop over last weekend.

The movie has now taken an amazing $885 Million globally and is the 2nd top movie of 2022, it is only a matter of time before it tops the list for 2022 and it will most likely top $1 Billion.
