The sequel movie from director Will Gluck remains at number 2 this weekend with £798,985, a 61% drop from last weekend.

The movie has been on the box office now for 4 weeks and has taken £13.9 Million, only Tenet from last year has taken more during the pandemic but this is on course to beat that movies £17.5 Million.

Highest new movie of the week is at number 5 with this movie from the writer of John Wick Derek Kolstad and directed by Ilya Naishuller.

The movie takes £574,399 on its debut, a little lower than expected maybe, but with the good weather in the UK and people still unsure about spending a long time in small spaces with strangers this is to be expected.

This week cinemas in the UK came back to life and started showing movies again, and in a week where it feels like things have been re-set and every one of the top 15 films in basically a new entry Peter Rabbit 2 leads the way.

As a testement to how much cinema has been missed by the british public over the last 5 months this weeks box office is the highest since March of 2020 when cinemas started to close and despite the fact that a number of the movies on the chart are on streaming platforms they still managed to bring in decent numbers.
