US box office top 5 breakdown weekend 23rd - 25th July 2021

Old

The new movie from director M. Night Shyamalan makes its debut at the top of the US box office this weekend with a gross of $16.5 Million.

The famed directors top movie in America is still The Sixth Sense from 1999 and with the current pandemic and cinema closures it wont come anywhere near that, but his lowest grossing is The Lady In the Water at $42.2 Million and although a struggle it could come close to that!

Snake Eyes

The new movie from the G.I Joe series of movies is an origins film and comes in at number 2 with $13.3 Million.

This movie had a lot of hype and its perhaps a disappointment that it came in at number 2, but Old had good word of mouth and this movie got hit hard by the critics, and I dont think there was much of an appetite for it!

Black Widow

Falling to number 3 this weekend is the latest Marvel movie which this week takes $11.6 Million, 56% down from last weekend.

This gives the movie a 3 week total gross of $154.8 Million, and its the 3rd top grossing movie of 2021 in America but its maybe lower than expected, it has the pandemic to content with and it is also available on Disney+ with an extra fee, and it wont be long before its available without the extra fee, also Marvel are doing very well on Disney+ with WandaVision, The Falcom and The Winter Soldier and Loki all having been big hits.

Space Jam: A New Legacy

Falling to number 4 from the top this week is the Space Jam sequel which has a second weekend gross of $9.5 Million, a large 70% drop over last weekend.

This gives the movie a total US gross of $51.3 Million and the prospect of disappearing out of the box office in the next couple of weeks, on a positive note it is the 8th top movie in America in 2021 so far.

Fast & Furious 9

The lastest The Fast Sage movie is sinking fast at the box office and this week takes $4.7 Million, 38% down from last weekend.

This gives the car movie a $163.3 Million total over 5 weeks of release, it is the top grossing movie in America of 2021 so far taking over from A Quiet Place Part II this weekend but this is most likely the last weekend in the top 5.

Last weekend saw Black Widow at the top of the UK box office for a second weekend, there are 4 new releases this weekend so can any of those in cinemas do enough to top the box office chart this weekend?

UK box office top 5 breakdown 16th - 18th July 2021

Black Widow

The Scarlett Johansson starring movie remains at the top of the UK box office for a second weekend with £1.8 Million, a quite large 74% drop from last weekend.

This gives the movie a total UK gross of £11.2 Million after 2 weeks of release and its the fourth top grossing movie of 2021 so far.

Space Jam: A New Legacy

Making its debut at number 2 this weekend is the sequel movie to 1996's Space Jam which took £1.3 Million over the weekend.

Compared to the original its far lower as the 1996 original took £4.6 Million on it's debut weekend, its a little unfair considering the global pandemic, but I would have thought this movie would have taken less regardless.

The Forever Purge

The fifth movie in the long running series makes its debut at number 3 with £720,032.

The highest grossing movie in the series is 2018's The First Purge which took £1.7 Million on its debut.

The Croods: A New Age

Another sequel hitting the box office this weekend is the animated sequel starring Nicolas Cage which makes its debut at number 4 with £696,563.

The original movie, The Croods was released in 2013 and took £5.3 Million on its debut, even considering the pandemic this is a disappointing debut for the sequel.

Fast & Furious 9

The ninth Fast movie falls to number 5, from 2, on its 4th weekend of release with a gross of £446,126, a large 59% drop.

This movie seems to be sinking faster than expected and after 4 weeks has taken £14.14 Million, although it is currently the second top grossing movie of 2021.

Marvel and Disney return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe after an 18 month absence with Black Widow which makes its debut at the top of the UK box office.

With such a massive new movie no studio was going to compete against it so this is the only new movie on this weeks top 15 box office, although further down there was new entries for To Be Someone directed by Ray Burdis, The Truffle Hunters directed by Michael Dweck and Gregory Kershaw and Tove directed by Zaida Bergroth to name a few.

UK box office QuickView

  • Number 1 - Black Widow (1st Weekend)
  • Highest debut - Black Widow (@1)
  • Longest run - Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway (8 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway (£18.3 Million)

UK box office top 5 breakdown weekend 9th - 11th July 2021

Black Widow

The movie may have had to wait over a year and been delayed a number of time because of the global pandemic but the MCU returns with force and a weekend gross of £6.88 Million, it is already the 6th top movie of 2021.

This beats the highest debut of a movie during the pandemic set by Fast & Furious 9 a couple of weeks ago which was £6 Million.

The movie is also available on Disney+ with a extra fee which will damage the movie potential, by how much we will have to wait and see.

The movie has had very positive review and good word of mouth will take it forward, and co-star Florence Pugh steals the show and sets herself up for future MCU movies.

Fast & Furious 9

Falling from the top of the box office to number 2 is the ninth movie in The Fast Saga which this week takes £1.09 Million, a large 59% drop from last weekend.

This give the film a total UK gross of £13 Million over its 3 weeks of release and its currently the second highest grossing movie of 2021.

Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway

It seems there is no stopping Peter Rabbit as he spends his 8th week inside the top 3, this week he falls to 3 with £546,981, a slim 34% drop over last weekend.

The movie has now taken £18.3 Million over its 8 weeks of release and is the top grossing movie in the UK in 2021, so far.

A Quiet Place Part II

Director John Krasinski's silent horror movie falls to number 4 this weekend with £261,410, a better than expected 39% drop over last weekend, this gives the movie a total UK gross of £10.9 Million and 6 weeks and place of number 3 on the top 2021 movies list.

In the Heights

Hanging on at number 5 is the musical adaptation from Jon M. Chu which takes £232,045 on its 4th weekend of release, a 50% drop, giving the movie a total gross of £3.8 Million.
