Men In Black International

Aladdin

The Will Smith Starring movie stays at the top of the UK box office this week with a weekend gross of £2.9 Million.

This takes the films total UK gross to £30.4 Million after 4 weeks of release.

Adjusted for inflation this is still not as high as the original 1993's roughly £38 Million.

Men In Black International

The new Men In Black film takes the runner up spot this week with the film unable to knock the Disney movie from the top.

The Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth starring movie debuts with £2.8 Million, this is lower than any of the other 3 Men In Black film, although compared to part 3 it is almost the same.

Avengers: Endgame

Rocketman

The Elton John film is at 3 this week with a weekend gross of £1.6 Million which pushes the film to &"pound;19.2 total after 4 weeks.

The Secret Life Of Pets 2

Four weeks in and the animated feature takes £1.5 Million for a £16.8 Million total gross.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix

This are looking bad for the latest X-Men movie as it falls to number 5 on its second weekend with a gross of £1.04 Million.

This pushes the films total gross to £5.9 Million and it will be the lowest grossing movie in the 20th Century Fox series.

Avengers: Endgame

Falling to number 12 this week the Marvel hit is on its 8th weekend of release and has taken £87.7 Million.

The Men In Black are back and hit the top of the global box office on their debut weekend of release leaving X-Men: Dark Phoenix to drop from the top after only a week.

Shaft

Men In Black International

The series started way back in 1997 and over 20 years later we get the fourth film with new stars and an international setting.

Unfortunately the Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth starring movie has not done nearly as well as the previous film and globally grosses $102.2 million from 57 countries on its debut.

Aladdin

Its been a bit of a slow burner but the Will Smith starring Disney live action film is still at 2 with a global take of $64.2 million from 56 countries.

This pushes the films total gross to a very acceptable $724.8 million after 4 weeks of release.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix

After making its debut at the top last week the X-Men film falls to number 3 this week with $33.2 million from 56 countries.

The film has now taken a global gross of $204.2 million afer 2 weeks.

The Secret Life Of Pets 2

The animated movie takes $32.2 million from 37 countries this weekend for a total gross of $154.5 million after 4 weeks of release.

Godzilla: King Of The Monsters

The Godzilla sequel takes $22 million from a whopping 80 countries this weekend and is at 5 on the global box office, the films total gross is $339.4 after 3 weeks of release.

Shaft

The Samual L. Jackson film is the second highest new film this week at number 9 with a global gross of $8.3 million from a single country of release.

Avengers: Endgame

The Marvel movie is struggling to beat Avatar and this week sits at number 12 on the box office with a total gross of $2.742 million.

It has been announced that the film will be pushed at the cinemas again next week with an extra bonus added to the film, it might just be enough to push it past Avatar.

After a break of 7 years the Men in Black are back and top the box office on their debut weekend dropping The Life Of Pets 2 down to number 2 on its second weekend of release.

Shaft

Men In Black: Internation

The Men in Black return with new faces but similar aliens to a first weekend gross of $28.5 million after fairly unfavourable reviews but fairly good word of mouth.

The film stars Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth back together again after Thor and Avengers: Engame.

Director F. Gary Gray takes over from original director Barry Sonnenfield and does a good job of brining a new spin to the over 20 year old ideas of the original movie.

This is the lowest debut of the series to date which doesn't bode well for the future box office success of the film.

The Secret Life Of Pets 2

After making its debut at the top of the US box office last weekend the film falls to number 2 this week with a $23.8 million gross.

This pushes the films total US gross to $92 million after 2 weeks of release.

Avengers: Endgame

Aladdin

Still in the top 5 after 4 weeks of release is the Disney live action movie which takes 16.7 million this weekend and sits at number 3.

The films total gross is now at $263.4 million.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix

After making its debbut at number 2 last weekend the latest X-Men movie falls to number 4 this weekend with just $9 million pushing the films total 2 week gross to $51.7 million.

Rocketman

Still in the top 5, at 5, after 3 weeks of release is the Elton John film which takes $8.8 million for a $66.1 million total US gross.

Shaft

Second highest new film of the week is Samuel L Jacksons movie which enters the box office at 6 with a $8.3 million gross.

Avengers: Endgame

8 weeks on and the Marvel movie is still on the US box office, this weeks its at number 11 and its total gross is $830.5 million.
