The UK box office didn't get started in 2021 until 24th May so the summer season is the first season of the year to get any results from ticket sales after the last box office chart being 25th December 2020 and Wonder Woman 1984 topping that chart.
The top movie of the summer got off to a flying start which was Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway and it took £4 Million the weekend cinemas re-opened.
The sequel movie directed by Will Gluck and starring James Corden as Peter was the top movie in the country for the first weekend audiences were allowed back into cinemas and it hung around for 12 weeks and has to date taken over £20 Million.
The much delayed Black Widow finally got a release on 23rd July 2021 and topped the box office for 3 weeks.
The movie starring Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh was on the UK top 15 for 15 weekend and has to date grossed over £18 Million and is the second top movie of 2021.
The Fast Saga was back this year with Fast & Furious 9 which was released at the end of June and topped the box office for a couple of weeks.
The movie has taken over £16 Million in the UK and is the third top movie of summer 2021.
There was a lot of hype around the James Gunn adaptation of The Suicide Squad which was released in late July and topped the box office on its release and the following weekend.
A 6 week UK box office run saw it gross £13 Million and is the fourth top in the UK over the summer of 2021.
A bit of a sleeper hit was the fifth top movie of the summer as Ryan Reynolds Free Guy which topped the box office in mid August for 3 weeks and has taken over £13 Million so far.
The movie is still on the box office as we go into the autumn and only got knocked off the top of the UK box office this last weekend by Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
The top 10 movies of Summer 2021 looks like this.

No big new releases at the UK box office this weekend has led to the whole top 5 staying the same with The Suicide Squad retaining its lead on the UK box office.

UK box office top 5 breakdown weekend 30th July - 1st August
Director James Gunn who brought us the MCU movie Guardians of the Galaxy brings us his spin on the super villain movie and judging from the reviews its a grittier more violent take than the 2016 movie from director David Ayer.
This new spin on the comic book story takes £3.2 Million on its debut, and although its unfair to compare the 2016 movie took £11.2 Million on its debut.
Disney bring us their latest Disneyland ride turned into a movie as Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt star in this lighthearted adventure comedy.
The movie makes its debut at number 2 with £2.2 Million and again its unfair to compare, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl which was also based on a Disneyland ride took £3.7 Million on its debut, so this is actually quite close!
It's the summer holidays in the UK and after a very difficult year at school it seems the cinema is a popular choice of entertainment as the LeBron James starring toon flick takes £1.2 Million, a slim 8% drop over last weekend.
This gives the movie a total UK gross of £6.5 Million after 3 weeks of release and the seventh top movie of 2021.
The school holidays are turning this animated sequel into a sleeper hit as it falls to number 4 this weekend but takes £893,054, a 2% increase over last week.
The movie has been on the box office now for 3 weeks and has a UK gross of £4.2 Million, its the ninth top movie of 2021.
The latest Marvel movie is on its decline now but still hands onto a top 5 position as it falls from the top to number 5, quite a drop!
The movie takes £788,028 over the weekend which is a fairly good 44% drop consider its on its fourth weekend of release.
The movie has taken a total of £16 Million in the UK which makes it the second top grossing movie of 2021.
30th July 2021
This weekend, Friday 30th July 2021, there are 6 new films released in the UK and where available looking to hit the box office chart, but can they challenge last weekends top movie, Black Widow, for the number 1 spot?
Here are this weeks new releases
Check back on Monday to see what new movies made it onto the Weekend Box Office Chart.
29th July 2021
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 tp 5 breakdown weekend 23rd - 25th July 2021
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
