News from around the web

Marvel Studios movie Black Widow stays at the top of the Uk box office this weekend making it three consecutive weeks for the movie.

Highest new entry of the weekend is the M. Night Shyamalan directed Old which makes its debut at number 4 while outside the top 5 at number 10 is new entry Off the Rails from director Jules Williamson which takes £80,598.

UK box office QuickView

  • Number 1 - Black Widow (3rd Weekend)
  • Highest debut - Old (@4)
  • Longest run - Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway (10 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway (£18.8 Million)
  • UK box office tp 5 breakdown weekend 23rd - 25th July 2021

    Black Widow

    The Marvel Cinematic Universe origins movie remains at the top of the UK box office for a third straight weekend this week taking £1.4 Million, a slim 22% drop over last weekend.

    This pushes the movies total gross over its three weekends to £13.8 Million, for obvious reasons its one of the lowest grossing movies from the Mavel/Disney collaboration but it is one of the top movies of 2021 in the UK at number 3 which is good and where you would expect it to be.

    To remain at the top of the chart next weekend is a big ask with Disney releasing Jungle Cruise with Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt and Warner releasing The Suicide Squad from director James Gunn.

    Space Jam: A New Legacy

    Destined to always be the runner up to Black Widow the toon and real life hybrid takes £1.3 Million over the weekend which is actually a 2% increase over last weekend, this can be contributed to the UK school summer holidays.

    This gives the movie a 2 weekend total gross of £3.6 Million, comparing to the original Space Jam movie and taking the pandemic into consideration this is still low.

    The Croods: A New Age

    A dissipating debut last weekend was a bit misleading for the toon sequel as it moved up to number 4 this weekend with £876,123, a 20% increase over last weekend, again contribute this to the school summer holidays.

    This gives the movie a 2 weekend gross of £2.05 Million.

    Old

    Director M. Night Shyamalan brings us his latest mystery movie with a twist and unlike its debut at the top in America it has to contend with a new entry at number 4.

    This is the highest new entry of the weekend, one which is really geared towards a teen to younger audience, but the movie takes £866,860 on its debut.

    The Forever Purge

    Falling to number 5 this weekend is the fifth movie in The Purge franchise which takes £598,803, a 17% drop, for a 2 weekend total of £1.8 Million.

It's all change again at the top of the US box office as 2 new entries are in the top 2 position, highest of the two is the new movie from director M. Night Shyamalan Old which hits the top.

The second of the two top releases is the new G.I. Joe movie Snake Eyes which come in at number 2.

US box office QuickView

  • Number 1 - Old (1st Weekend)
  • Highest debut - Old (@1)
  • Longest run - A Quiet Place Part II (9 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - A Quiet Place Part II ($157.5 Million)

US box office top 5 breakdown weekend 23rd - 25th July 2021

Old

The new movie from director M. Night Shyamalan makes its debut at the top of the US box office this weekend with a gross of $16.5 Million.

The famed directors top movie in America is still The Sixth Sense from 1999 and with the current pandemic and cinema closures it wont come anywhere near that, but his lowest grossing is The Lady In the Water at $42.2 Million and although a struggle it could come close to that!

Snake Eyes

The new movie from the G.I Joe series of movies is an origins film and comes in at number 2 with $13.3 Million.

This movie had a lot of hype and its perhaps a disappointment that it came in at number 2, but Old had good word of mouth and this movie got hit hard by the critics, and I dont think there was much of an appetite for it!

Black Widow

Falling to number 3 this weekend is the latest Marvel movie which this week takes $11.6 Million, 56% down from last weekend.

This gives the movie a 3 week total gross of $154.8 Million, and its the 3rd top grossing movie of 2021 in America but its maybe lower than expected, it has the pandemic to content with and it is also available on Disney+ with an extra fee, and it wont be long before its available without the extra fee, also Marvel are doing very well on Disney+ with WandaVision, The Falcom and The Winter Soldier and Loki all having been big hits.

Space Jam: A New Legacy

Falling to number 4 from the top this week is the Space Jam sequel which has a second weekend gross of $9.5 Million, a large 70% drop over last weekend.

This gives the movie a total US gross of $51.3 Million and the prospect of disappearing out of the box office in the next couple of weeks, on a positive note it is the 8th top movie in America in 2021 so far.

Fast & Furious 9

The lastest The Fast Sage movie is sinking fast at the box office and this week takes $4.7 Million, 38% down from last weekend.

This gives the car movie a $163.3 Million total over 5 weeks of release, it is the top grossing movie in America of 2021 so far taking over from A Quiet Place Part II this weekend but this is most likely the last weekend in the top 5.

Sony have released a new trailer for the Jason Reitman directed Ghostbusters: Afterlife which hit all Ghostbusters fans over the head with the nostalgia stick.

The first thing you notice about this trailer is the serious and horror tone of the movie, I know the originals were horror comedies, but this seems more like a Stranger Things style horror movie.

But saying that it looks like its going to be a lot of fun and the new kids do a great job of stepping into the Ghostbusters shoes.

As for the nostalgia, Annie Potts' Janine Melnitz turns up to give some wisdom about why Dr. Egon Spengler moved to a small American town, I hope she has a bigger role than the trailer suggest.

Also we see plenty of the old Ghostbusters equipment, a photo of the 4 originals, and the advert from the original movie plays throughout, and we get to see Paul Rudd have a strange Stay Puff Marshmallow Man experience in a supermarket!

Then in the end we get to see what is presumably Dr. Raymond Stantz, who seems to have the same phone number used in the original movie.

The movie gets a release on 12th November in the UK and a day eariler in America.

The Chinese box office showed its strength again this week as the top new movie globally is Green Snake which only got a release in the single terretory.

Also making its debut this week is the new movie from M. Night Shyamalan, Old, which comes in at 3 while outside the top 5 is Snake Eyes which is new at 6 with $17.3 Million.
