US box office top 5 weekend breakdown 8th - 10th April 2022
The school Spring Break holiday was the perfect time frame to release this video game sequel movie as it knocks the comic book film Morbius off the top after a single weekend.
The sequel to 2020's Sonic the Hedgehog takes over at the top with a fantastic $71 Million which beats the originals $58 Million debut from Valentines 2020.
With a fantastic debut gross the movie is already the 6th top movie of 2022.
The unfavourable reception of the latest comic book movie from Marvel Studios is already showing its effect as the Sony Spiderverse movie falls to number 2 on its second weekend with $10.2 Million, a massive 74% drop.
A total gross of $57 Million takes it into the top 10 movies of 2022 but with a number of high profile movies coming in the following months it will not keep this position for long.
The action comedy from starring Sandra Bullock falls to number 3 this weekend with $9.1 Million, a 38% drop, giving it a $68.8 Million total.
The movie has gained a solid audience and is the 7th top movie of 2022 so far.
The latest movie from action director Micheal Bay takes him away from the Transformers franchise and into a more 'realistic' scenario as he directs Jake Gyllenhaal to an $8.7 Million debut.
Falling to number 5 on its 6th weekend of release the Caped Crusader takes $6.5 Million, a 40% drop which gives the movie a $359 Million total.
The movie can be considered a hit and is tracking just above Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice which had taken $325 Million at this point in its box office run.
The movie is the top film of 2022 in North America.
6th April 2022
Two potential blockbusters battled it out for the top spot this weekend, and with the school Easter holidays starting it was the video game adaptation Sonic the Hedgehog 2 which comfortably beat the Spiderverse Morbius.
New animated feature The Bad Guys also made its debut inside the top 3 making an all new top of the chart while at the other end of the top 15 True Things from director Harry Wootliff is new at 14 with £46,186.
UK box office top 5 weekend breakdown 1st - 3rd April 2022
The speedy blue hedgehog returns in a sequel to his surprise smash hit movie Sonic the Hedgehog from 2020.
This time he is accompanied by his buddy Tails and Dr. Ivo Robotnik has brought along Knuckles to try and defeat Sonic.
The movie makes its debut with a fantastic £4.9 Million which is a tiny bit higher than the original movie but definitely in the same ball park.
The timing of the movie could not have been better and it beats the much anticipated Morbius, altohugh Sonic 2 has had far better reviews.
The latest movie from the Sony Pictures Spiderverse of villains which also includes Venom lands at number 2 with a debut weekend gross of £3.2 Million.
This is lower than Venom and its sequel from last year Venom: Let There Be Carnage, but considering the negative critical review and word of mouth this is perhaps understandable.
Putting the movie against Sonic was probably not the best idea, it is the start of the UK Easter holidays and the younger audience has a better appetite for a video game adaptation rather than a movie based on a villain they have probably not heard of.
Completing a trio of new films at the top of the UK box office is the new movie from DreamWorks, the same studio that brought us the Shrek series of movies.
Positive reviews and the Easter holidays have taken the movie into the top 3 with a debut gross of £2.2 Million.
After 4 weeks at the top the lastest incarnation of the Caped Crusader falls hard to number 4 this weekend with a 5th weekend gross of £1,2 Million, a small 25% drop over last weekend.
This gives the movie a total UK gross of £37.8 Million over its 5 weeks of release and it is currently the top movie of 2022, and it is the 83 top movie ever in the UK!
The Micheal Bay directed Ambulance drama falls to number 5 this weekend with a second weekend total of £273,015, a 48% drop over last weekend, giving the movie a total of £1.1 Million.
2nd January 2022
The year 2021 was a tough year for British Cinema, it started with cinemas being closed until the end of May, and it was only after a slow start and into June that it started to pick up, but it ended with potentially one of the biggest movies of all time.
As we go into 2022 the threat of closures due to the growing concernes of the pandemic, but currently it looks like things are set to stay open.
We get a fairly slow start to the year although the excellent Licorice Pizza which came out on January 1st is well worth a watch, but things get going in mid January when the new Scream gets a release, horror movies often do well in January and with the built in audience and all the original stars back this should be a hit.
As January continues we get Oscar Contender Cyrano with what looks to be an awards worthy performance from Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage.
Also in January is Joel Coen's The Tragedy of Macbeth and Kenneth Branagh's Belfast along with Guy Ritchie's Operation Fortune: Ruse de guerre and Nightmare Alley starring Bradley Cooper and Cate Blanchett.
The hits come thick and fast as we leave January as the much anticipated Morbius and Sing 2 get a release.
We go into February and epic event director Roland Emmerich brings up Moonfall and we also get the 'does anyone really want it?' Jackass Forever.
In the middle of the month we get the much delayed Death on the Nile from Kenneth Branagh, his second film in consecutive months, and then as them month closes we get the much anticipated Uncharted starring Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg.
We go into spring with the March release os the overly anticipated The Batman which is directed by Matt Reeves and stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader.
Pixar also release their forst movie of the year Turning Red and we also get a movie delayed from the end of 2021 in the shape of sequel movie Downton Abbey: A New Era/
Finally in March we get the fourth in the John Wick series which is yet to get a full title along with Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum in The Lost City
We get into April and the follow up movie Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is released with Jim Carrey and Idris Elba lending his voice to villain Knuckles.
Before the summer season starts Warner Bros. release Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore which will have Mads Mikkelsen taking over the role of Grindelwald and then at the end of the month we get a surprise follow up movie with Fisherman's Friends: One and All.
All eyes will be on the start of May as the spiritual successor to Spider-Man: No Way Home is released with Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness and we finally get the delayed too many times movie Top Gun: Maverick, a follow up to the classic 1986 movie starring Tom Cruise.
Then we get into summer proper as June brings Jurassic World: Dominion and the Pixar movie Lightyear where Chris Evans takes over as the voice of Buzz Lightyear.
Another movie which has been delayed, Minions: The Rise of Gru gets a release in July along with the next MCU movie Thor: Love and Thunder which will see Natalie Portman take over as Thor and Taika Waititi returns to direct this fourth instalment.
As the year goes past the halfway mark the next Jordan Peele horror movie gets a release with Nope and then superstar Dwayne Johnson becomes a superhero in Black Adam.
August brings us The Man From Toronto starring Kaley Cuoco better known as Penny from The Big Bang Theory and September takes us to Salems Lot in this adaptation of the Stephen King novel from director Gary Dauberman.
September also brings us Don't Worry Darling from Olivia Wilde and stars Florence Pugh and as we enter October the much anticipated animated sequel Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Part One gets released.
October is known for its horror movies and Halloween Ends brings the current trilogy to a close, and maybe even the series of movies while there is a return for another long running horror series as Paranormal Activity: The Other Side gets released.
November has a new movie from the DCEU as The Flash is another movie which shows us that DC can do multiverses as well and in the same month Marvel brings us Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
As the year comes to a close we get the big screen adaptation of Matilda from the musical rather than the book and then the DCEU is back with Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
And then finally we get the animated movie Super Mario Bros.: The Movie starring the famous Nintendo plumber in his first big screen animated movie.
There will be more announcement in time as the end of the year is a little empty at the moment, but there we have it, a year of movies to look forward to, and as you can imagine in this uncertain time, there is every possibility that some movies will be delayed, especially if there is another lockdown and cinemas close.
Keep and eye on upcoming releases at our coming soon page.
