The UK box office came to a grinding halt in January of 2021 as the global pandemic took full grip of the country so there was no chart until the middle of May.
Once cinemas opened it was a slow start Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway coming out on top for the first few weeks, it wasn't until late June when Fast & Furious 9 was released that things started to hot up, then things started to go from strength to strength.
Here is a breakdown of the top 5 movie of 2021 at the UK box office.
The much delayed 25th movie in the Bond series finally got released at the very end of September 2021 and after a massive debut weekend where it took nearly £26 Million the movie managed to do what Tenet the previous year couldn't, it got people mack in cinemas.
The movie, which is still on general release got mixed reviews from critics, and has an ending with split Bond fans, but to date the movie has taken £96.4 Million over 12 weeks of release and is the third highest grossing movie of all time in the UK.
The last movie from the MCU universe to be released in a year when Marvel/Disney/Sony had a fantastic return to cinemas, and after all the hype and rumours about what the multiverse would bring the movie took a massive &pond;31.9 Million on its debut in the UK.
The film was released in mid December so it still raking in the cash as your local multiplex, and will most likely overtake No Time To Die with its total gross as well as be only the third movie in history to gross over £100 Million.
With a total gross already over £50 Million after just 2 weeks it will most likely feature quite high on the top movies of 2022 as well.
Another MCU movie on the list of top movies if 2021 as the much anticipated new superhero hit cinemas in early September with a debut gross of £5.7 Million.
Over a 9 week run at the box office the movie took £21.8 Million making it the third top movie of the year
Visionary director Denis Villeneuve is fast becoming one of the most respected film makers in Hollywood and his much anticipated version of the classic sci-fi noval Dune hit cinemas in October with £5.8 Million.
The movie took £21.8 Million over 9 weeks of release in the UK in 2021 to make it the 4th to movie of the year.
THe first big hit of the year once cinemas in the UK started to re-open, its a sequel to 2018 movie Peter Rabbit which was a huge hit so this was a sure fire hit.
The movie made the top of the box office on its release and was the top movie of the year for quite a long run, the film took £20.4 Million over a 17 week run and is the 5th top movie of 2021.

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!
