Director James Gunn who brought us the MCU movie Guardians of the Galaxy brings us his spin on the super villain movie and judging from the reviews its a grittier more violent take than the 2016 movie from director David Ayer.
This new spin on the comic book story takes £3.2 Million on its debut, and although its unfair to compare the 2016 movie took £11.2 Million on its debut.
Disney bring us their latest Disneyland ride turned into a movie as Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt star in this lighthearted adventure comedy.
The movie makes its debut at number 2 with £2.2 Million and again its unfair to compare, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl which was also based on a Disneyland ride took £3.7 Million on its debut, so this is actually quite close!
It's the summer holidays in the UK and after a very difficult year at school it seems the cinema is a popular choice of entertainment as the LeBron James starring toon flick takes £1.2 Million, a slim 8% drop over last weekend.
This gives the movie a total UK gross of £6.5 Million after 3 weeks of release and the seventh top movie of 2021.
The school holidays are turning this animated sequel into a sleeper hit as it falls to number 4 this weekend but takes £893,054, a 2% increase over last week.
The movie has been on the box office now for 3 weeks and has a UK gross of £4.2 Million, its the ninth top movie of 2021.
The latest Marvel movie is on its decline now but still hands onto a top 5 position as it falls from the top to number 5, quite a drop!
The movie takes £788,028 over the weekend which is a fairly good 44% drop consider its on its fourth weekend of release.
The movie has taken a total of £16 Million in the UK which makes it the second top grossing movie of 2021.
29th July 2021
Marvel Studios movie Black Widow stays at the top of the Uk box office this weekend making it three consecutive weeks for the movie.
Highest new entry of the weekend is the M. Night Shyamalan directed Old which makes its debut at number 4 while outside the top 5 at number 10 is new entry Off the Rails from director Jules Williamson which takes £80,598.

UK box office tp 5 breakdown weekend 23rd - 25th July 2021
The Marvel Cinematic Universe origins movie remains at the top of the UK box office for a third straight weekend this week taking £1.4 Million, a slim 22% drop over last weekend.
This pushes the movies total gross over its three weekends to £13.8 Million, for obvious reasons its one of the lowest grossing movies from the Mavel/Disney collaboration but it is one of the top movies of 2021 in the UK at number 3 which is good and where you would expect it to be.
To remain at the top of the chart next weekend is a big ask with Disney releasing Jungle Cruise with Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt and Warner releasing The Suicide Squad from director James Gunn.
Destined to always be the runner up to Black Widow the toon and real life hybrid takes £1.3 Million over the weekend which is actually a 2% increase over last weekend, this can be contributed to the UK school summer holidays.
This gives the movie a 2 weekend total gross of £3.6 Million, comparing to the original Space Jam movie and taking the pandemic into consideration this is still low.
A dissipating debut last weekend was a bit misleading for the toon sequel as it moved up to number 4 this weekend with £876,123, a 20% increase over last weekend, again contribute this to the school summer holidays.
This gives the movie a 2 weekend gross of £2.05 Million.
Director M. Night Shyamalan brings us his latest mystery movie with a twist and unlike its debut at the top in America it has to contend with a new entry at number 4.
This is the highest new entry of the weekend, one which is really geared towards a teen to younger audience, but the movie takes £866,860 on its debut.
Falling to number 5 this weekend is the fifth movie in The Purge franchise which takes £598,803, a 17% drop, for a 2 weekend total of £1.8 Million.

Sony have released a new trailer for the Jason Reitman directed Ghostbusters: Afterlife which hit all Ghostbusters fans over the head with the nostalgia stick.
The first thing you notice about this trailer is the serious and horror tone of the movie, I know the originals were horror comedies, but this seems more like a Stranger Things style horror movie.
But saying that it looks like its going to be a lot of fun and the new kids do a great job of stepping into the Ghostbusters shoes.
As for the nostalgia, Annie Potts' Janine Melnitz turns up to give some wisdom about why Dr. Egon Spengler moved to a small American town, I hope she has a bigger role than the trailer suggest.
Also we see plenty of the old Ghostbusters equipment, a photo of the 4 originals, and the advert from the original movie plays throughout, and we get to see Paul Rudd have a strange Stay Puff Marshmallow Man experience in a supermarket!
Then in the end we get to see what is presumably Dr. Raymond Stantz, who seems to have the same phone number used in the original movie.
The movie gets a release on 12th November in the UK and a day eariler in America.
20th July 2021
The MCU take a second weekend at the top of the global box office as Black Widow remains at number 1, but Space Jam: A New Legacy makes a strong challenge for the top on its second weekend.
The Space Jam sequel is the real top new movie at number 2, although it did get a release in Russia last week where is took $194,073, which makes Chinese movie The Day We Lit Up the Sky the top new movie making its debut at number 6 this weekend with $11.8 Million.
