The top 15 movie took a total of £627,505 which is double that of last week and with Wonder Woman 1984 set for release on Wednesday 16th December we could see some impressive numbers next weekend.

  • *Not including re-releases

Here is a breakdown of the top 5 box office movies 11th - 13th December 2020


Directed by Jon Favreau the holiday favourite from 2003 spends a second weekend at the top of the UK box office taking £98,157, 51% up from last weekend.

The movie only made number 2 on its initial release, the film has now taken £17.1 Million since its 2003 release.

Home Alone

Another holiday classic spends a second weekend at number 2, this week it takes £87,809, 58% up from last weekend, the movie was released in 1990 and has taken £9.7 Million since release.

Little Mix: LM5 - The Tour Film

Little Mix: LM5 - The Tour Film

Highest new movie of the week is the concert film of pop group Little Mix's last concert LM5 which takes £83,518 over the weekend.


Another new release, Melissa McCarthy stars in her husband Ben Falcone new movie which makes its debut at 4 with £72,574 .


Finally in the top 5 is writer Richard Curtis's directorial debut starring Hugh Grant from 2003.

The movie takes £42,508 over the weekend, 66% up from last week, for a total gross of £36.87 since it was released.

As predicted with the surge in COVID-19 cases in the US, the big movie of the holiday season, Wonder Woman 1984, will debut on steaming and cinema on the same day.

The Patty Jenkins directed movie will get the duel release in the US with no word yet on if the Boxing Day release in the UK is changing or a streaming option will be in place as well.

Wonder Woman 1984 HBO Max confirmation

The movie has been changed from earlier in 2020 to later in 2020 a couple of time finally settling for a Christmas release.

With COVID-19 cases on the increase in the US and the UK on a lockdown until early December Warner Bros. have decided to dual release it.

With a vaccine almost imminent this could be perhaps the last big film to get this type of release, altohugh with Universal seemingly a fan of short release windows who know, but thats a story for another day.

Can we say cinemas as we know and love it has died yet?

**UPDATE** It looks like the UK release has been brought forward and will be released in cinemas on December 16th.

It's the end of the first quarter of 2020, and with cinemas closed in the UK until further notice it seems like a good time to look at the top 10 films of 2020 so far.


Sam Mandes film is by far the top grossing film of 2020 so far, with a total gross of £43 Million it has taken more than double that of the number film.

This is no surprise from the British director, the movie saw tipped for glory at the Oscar but ended up loosing out ot Parasite, still the British public took to the World War II film.

Sonic The Hedgehog

Despite the difficult production and fan feedback for the design of Sonic when the first trailer came out, director Jeff Fowler went back to the drawing board and re-did the central character and it seems to have worked.

The movie ended up grossing a very good £19 Million, far than than was expected.

Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker

Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker

Despite an amount of disappointment from a section of the Star Wars fan base the last episode of the "Skywalker Saga" did very well over the holiday period, altohugh it is the lowest grossing of the sequel trilogy.

A gross of £18 Million in 2020 adds to the £39 Million taken in December of 2019.

Little Women

Greta Gerwig's adaptation of the Louisa May Alcott classic novel was a fan favourite which took £17.7 Million at the ox office.

Bad Boys For Life

Many people had written this film off before release but the repairing of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence worked and the movie grossed nearly £16 Million at the UK box office.


Another surprise hit as the Robert Downey Jr. movie took £15.8 Million at the box office.

Jumanji: The Next Level

Dwayne Johnson's sequel may not have been the smash Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle was but it still manages a respectable £14.7 Million.



Winning the best film Oscar did this South Korean movie wonders as it became the highest grossing foreign language film ever in the UK with a total of £12 Million.

The Gentleman

Guy Ritchie returns to his directiorial roots with this London based gangster movie which took £11.5 Million.

Birds Of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn)

More was expected from this Harley Quinn movie starring Margot Robbie but the film under performed, it still managed a £8.8 Million total gross.

The production of No Time To Die, and its release date, has had a troubled time, but few could have predicted the outbreak of the Coronavirus, or COVID-19 as it is called, to delay the film even further.

Today producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson have announced that the film will be delayed until November with a UK release on 12th November 2020 and US release on 25th November 2020.

The film has had many delays with the first release date when the film was going to be directed by Danny Boyle being November 2019, then when he left the project it was moved to early 2020 and then yet again it was delayed until April 2020 to give the production more time.

Lets hope that the virus is under control ASAP and that there will be no more delays in the release of the movie.

Bond movies in recent years are more comfortable in the holiday period and a Christmas release may well benefit the film.

Without too much trouble Frozen II makes its global debut at the top of the global box office leaving Ford V. Ferrari to drop into second place while A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood and 21 Bridges also make promising debuts to their chart run.

Frozen II

Disney's sequel animated feature was a sure fire hit the make its debut at the top of the global box office as the much anticipated sequel to 2013's mega hit Frozen takes $350.2 Million from 38 countries.

With the film being released just before the holiday season across much of the world the film is bound to remain in the upper section of the chart for a while.

The film will be hard pushed to match the £1.2 Billion of the original film but its within the movies, and Disney's, power to get the film over the Billion mark.

Ford V Ferrari

The Matt Damon and Christian Bale starring movie drop to number 2 on its second weekend of release with $30.7 Million from 44 countries.

THe film has now made a very respectable $103.7 Million globally.

A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood

A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood

Tom Hanks shines in the story of American children's favourite Mr Rodgers in this Oscar worthy film which enters the chart at 3 with $13.5 Million from just 1 country.

The Marielle Heller directed movie will expand wider in the coming weeks but as this is very much a story of an American icon with little knowledge of the subject matter around the globe the studio will have to rely on the star power of Tom Hanks to sell the movie.

21 Bridges

Chadwick Boseman stars in this action movie which enters the global box office at 4 with $12 Million from 21 countries.


Falling to 5 this week is the DC villain movie which has potentially shone brighter than other comic book movies this year, the film takes $10.4 Million from 78 countries on its 8th weekend of release.

The film has now taken $1.035 Billion globally and although this is nowhere near the box office take of Avengers: Endgame the movie cost far less to make and there is the possibility of a Oscar next year, Warner Bros. must be far happier than Marvel right now!
