This third in the series of movies that serve as a prequel to the Harry Potter movies, starring Eddie Redmayne as the Beasts finder Newt Scamander the series has turned into an origins movie for Albus Dumbledore played in this series by Jude law.
The movie opens with a gross of £5.8 Million which is well below the last movie in the series Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald with an opening of £12 Million and the first movie in the series Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which took £15 Million on its opening.
This series of movies has not touched the heights of the Harry Potter series which started 20 years ago with Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone which took £15 Million on its debut and ended with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 which took £23 Million.
The movie is the 10th top movie of the year so far, and will end up most likely in the top 5, but it is debatable if Warner Bros. will see this as good enough to continue the movies in what should have been a 5 movie series.
The blue speedy hedgehog which made its debut at number 1 last weekend falls to number 2 on its second weekend of release with £2.9 Million, a 42% drop over last weekend.
this gives the movie a total UK gross of £10.6 Million after 2 weeks of release, this is more than double the take of the first movie at the same point of release.
The movie is the 6th top film of 2022 and at this rate bound to do even better.
Proving to be a smash hit is the latest movie from the DreamWorks animated stable which this weekend takes £1.1 Million, a 51% drop over last weekend, taking the movies total UK gross to £4.8 Million.
Sony's Spiderverse movie drops to number 4 this weekend with £740,336, a massive 77% drop over last weekend.
This gives the movie a total gross of £5 Million after 2 weekends of release, it will most likely drop out of the top 5 next weekend and end its run with about £7 Million.
Its not been good for the super villain movie especially after the success last year of Venom: Let There Be Carnage and Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Dropping to number 5 this weekend The Caped Crusader takes £623,866 on its 6th weekend of release, a 48% drop over last weekend, giving the movie a total of £39 Million.
The movie is the top movie of 2022 so far, an honor it will loose in the coming weeks, but the film has been a success for Warner Bros. in fact it has been more successful tha Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice from 2016 which took £35 Million over its total 6 week run.
It has not been as successful though as Joker~2019 from 2019 which had taken £54 Million 6 weeks into its run on its way to £58 Million total.

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.
11th April 2022
As the movie goes wide into 54 counties including North America Sonic the Hedgehog 2 easily tops the global box office on its second weekend of release.
Top new movie of the weekend is Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore which gets released in 22 countries, but has to wait until this weekend coming for its North American debut.
Also entering the global box office at number 10 is French movie Qu'est-ce Qu'on a Tous Fait Au Bon Dieu? (Serial (Bad) Weddings 3) which takes $5.7 Million from its single country release.
World box office top 5 weekend breakdown 8th - 10th April 2022
After being beaten by Morbius last weekend the speedy blue video game hedgehog jump to the top of the global box office with ease this weekend having extended its country count to 54.
The movie takes $108 Million, a 76% increase, over the weekend pushing its total global gross to $141 Million after 2 weeks of release, it is the 9th top movie of 2022.
Getting a release in 22 countries the third in the Fantastic Beasts series of movies makes its debut at number 2 this weekend getting a release in 22 countries.
The movie takes a reasonable $58 Million on its debut, but with a release in countries like North America next weekend expect this to more than double and the movie to take over at the top.
Falling hard to number 3 this weekend is the Marvel/Sony vampire movie starring Jared Leto which takes $25.2 Million over the weekend, a hard 70% drop over last weekend.
This puts the movie total global gross at $126 Million after 2 weeks of release, this must be seen as a big disappointment for Sony, especially after the mega success of Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Falling to number 4 on its 6th weekend of release the Caped Crusader takes $13 Million, a 46% drop over last weekend, the movie has taken a total of $735 Million.
The movie will fail to make $1 Billion, not too much of a surprise considering there is still a pandemic gripping the world and the Cinese release was far less than expected, but the movie is the top film of 2022 across the globe, so far!
The Michael Bay movie jumps to number 5 this weekend, from number 9, with $11.5 Million, a 75% increase over last weekend as the movie expands into 69 countries, this takes its total gross to $31 Million after 4 weeks of release.
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.
5th April 2022
Following in the footsteps of Venom and its sequel Sony release their latest movie in the Marvel Spiderverse with Morbius which tops the box office on its debut.
With a new comic book inspired movie there was nothing else of note released, The Contractor~2022 starring Chris Pine was another movie making its debut, at number 12 with $535,000.
US box office top 5 weekend breakdown 1st - 3rd April 2022
Another new comic book character comes to the big screen in an origins story, this time its the less known about Morbius from the Spider-Man comic books which is owned by Sony Pictures.
With the Venom movies being a sizeable hit for the studio this must have seemed like a good prospect to increase the universe, but a critical panning and mad word of mouth could see this stall at a single film.
The movie takes a reasonable $39.1 Million on its debut, but with Sonic the Hedgehog 2 out next weekend, and getting better reviews, the movie could sink fast.
It is the 10th top movie of 2022 after a single weekend of release.
After a single weekend at the top of the US box office the action comedy starring Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum falls to number 2 with a weekend gross of $14.8 Million, a 51% drop.
This gives the movie a total North American gross of $54.8 Million after 2 weekends of release, its the 8th top movie of 2022.
Still hanging onto a spot on the top 3 the Robert Pattinson Caped Crusader movie falls to number 3 this weekend with $10.8 Million, a 47% drop.
The movie has been on the chart now for 5 weeks and has taken a total of $349 Million, it is the top movie of 2022.
The Ruben Fleischer directed video game adaptation remains at number 4 this weekend with a gross of $3.6 Million, a small 28% drop over last weekend, giving the movie a total gross of $138.9 Million and the 3rd top movie of 2022.
Remaining at number 5 for a second weekend is the Japanese animated movie which takes $1.9 million on its 3rd weekend of release, a 57% drop.
The movie has now taken $29.6 Million in North America and is the 11th top movie of 2022!
