US box office QuickView
A very quiet weekend for new movies as the new year rolls around giving the Marvel/Sony movie a third weekend at the top of the US box office with a gross of $52.7 Million, a slim 35% drop over last weekend.
The movie has now been at the top for 3 weeks and has taken a massive $609.8 Million in North America, and it is by far the top movie of 2021, and currently the top movie of 2022.
The movie has also broken into the top 10 movies of all time in North America at number 10.
Animated sequel to Sing hold firm at number 2 with a second weekend take of $19.6 Million, a very slim 18% drop over last weekend.
The movie has now taken $89.6 Million in North America on its way to breaking the $100 Million milestone by next weekend.
Director Matthew Vaughn's prequel movie has had a strange release window and after making its debut at 4 last weekend jumps up to 3 this week with $4.5 Million, 29% down from last weekend.
The movie has taken $19.5 Million after 2 weeks of release.
Another movie on the way up at the sports based drama takes $4.07 Million as it jumps to number 4 this week from its debut position of 5, a 34% drop over last week.
The movie has now taken $15 Million after 2 weekends of release.
Despite the fact that the fourth in The Matrix series got a simultaneous release on HBO Max and cinemas the movie looks destined to be a flop at the box office as the movie falls to number 5 this weekend with $3.82 Million, a large 68% drop over last week.
The film is competing with a similar market to the top movie at the movie Spider-Man: No Way Home which is potentially taking some of its audience, but after two weeks the much anticipated and hyped movie has taken just $30.9 Million.
2nd January 2022
The year 2021 was a tough year for British Cinema, it started with cinemas being closed until the end of May, and it was only after a slow start and into June that it started to pick up, but it ended with potentially one of the biggest movies of all time.
As we go into 2022 the threat of closures due to the growing concernes of the pandemic, but currently it looks like things are set to stay open.
We get a fairly slow start to the year although the excellent Licorice Pizza which came out on January 1st is well worth a watch, but things get going in mid January when the new Scream gets a release, horror movies often do well in January and with the built in audience and all the original stars back this should be a hit.
As January continues we get Oscar Contender Cyrano with what looks to be an awards worthy performance from Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage.
Also in January is Joel Coen's The Tragedy of Macbeth and Kenneth Branagh's Belfast along with Guy Ritchie's Operation Fortune: Ruse de guerre and Nightmare Alley starring Bradley Cooper and Cate Blanchett.
The hits come thick and fast as we leave January as the much anticipated Morbius and Sing 2 get a release.
We go into February and epic event director Roland Emmerich brings up Moonfall and we also get the 'does anyone really want it?' Jackass Forever.
In the middle of the month we get the much delayed Death on the Nile from Kenneth Branagh, his second film in consecutive months, and then as them month closes we get the much anticipated Uncharted starring Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg.
We go into spring with the March release os the overly anticipated The Batman which is directed by Matt Reeves and stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader.
Pixar also release their forst movie of the year Turning Red and we also get a movie delayed from the end of 2021 in the shape of sequel movie Downton Abbey: A New Era/
Finally in March we get the fourth in the John Wick series which is yet to get a full title along with Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum in The Lost City
We get into April and the follow up movie Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is released with Jim Carrey and Idris Elba lending his voice to villain Knuckles.
Before the summer season starts Warner Bros. release Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore which will have Mads Mikkelsen taking over the role of Grindelwald and then at the end of the month we get a surprise follow up movie with Fisherman's Friends: One and All.
All eyes will be on the start of May as the spiritual successor to Spider-Man: No Way Home is released with Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness and we finally get the delayed too many times movie Top Gun: Maverick, a follow up to the classic 1986 movie starring Tom Cruise.
Then we get into summer proper as June brings Jurassic World: Dominion and the Pixar movie Lightyear where Chris Evans takes over as the voice of Buzz Lightyear.
Another movie which has been delayed, Minions: The Rise of Gru gets a release in July along with the next MCU movie Thor: Love and Thunder which will see Natalie Portman take over as Thor and Taika Waititi returns to direct this fourth instalment.
As the year goes past the halfway mark the next Jordan Peele horror movie gets a release with Nope and then superstar Dwayne Johnson becomes a superhero in Black Adam.
August brings us The Man From Toronto starring Kaley Cuoco better known as Penny from The Big Bang Theory and September takes us to Salems Lot in this adaptation of the Stephen King novel from director Gary Dauberman.
September also brings us Don't Worry Darling from Olivia Wilde and stars Florence Pugh and as we enter October the much anticipated animated sequel Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Part One gets released.
October is known for its horror movies and Halloween Ends brings the current trilogy to a close, and maybe even the series of movies while there is a return for another long running horror series as Paranormal Activity: The Other Side gets released.
November has a new movie from the DCEU as The Flash is another movie which shows us that DC can do multiverses as well and in the same month Marvel brings us Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
As the year comes to a close we get the big screen adaptation of Matilda from the musical rather than the book and then the DCEU is back with Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
And then finally we get the animated movie Super Mario Bros.: The Movie starring the famous Nintendo plumber in his first big screen animated movie.
There will be more announcement in time as the end of the year is a little empty at the moment, but there we have it, a year of movies to look forward to, and as you can imagine in this uncertain time, there is every possibility that some movies will be delayed, especially if there is another lockdown and cinemas close.
Keep and eye on upcoming releases at our coming soon page.
1st January 2022
The box office had a slow start to the year with the shut-downs due to the ongoing global pandemic, but when they did re-open the public were slow to go back and there were many films released earlier in the year which under performed.
As the year progressed the public gained confidence in sitting in dark rooms with strangers and the year ended with the biggest movie of the year as Marvels MCU was the big outright winner.
Here is a breakdown of the top 5 movie of 2021 at the North American box office.
The Marvel/MCU/Sony movie was released late into December but beat expectations and has become the top movie of the year in North America through expectation, hype and the fact that it is every Spider-Fan's perfect movie.
The film hit the top of the 2021 list on its opening weekend and has so far taken over $500 Million, and as the movie is only 3 weeks old there is clearly more to come.
Another Marvel/MCU movie but this time very much a Disney product, and the movie can just at the point in late summer when the public was ready to go back to cinemas, and as many had not been in a cinema for over a year they flock to see the first Asian American superhero.
The movie took $224.5 Million during its 13 week box office run and took over from Black Widow when it did become the top movie of 2021 for a few weeks.
Sony had a good year in 2021, and although this is not directly a MCU movie it has enough connection to be closely associated, and the sequel movie did better than expected in its early autumn release.
Taking an excellent $212.4 Million over a 12 week span the movie is still currently showing in some cinemas in North America so its total could end up higher.
One of the first major releases in North America once cinemas began to open again, the solo outing for Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow didn't do as well as expected, but it got a Disney+ streaming release at the same time as its cinemas release.
Taking $183.6 Million over its 14 week cinematic run the movie was briefly the top movie of the year.
One of the first movie to get delayed at the very start of the pandemic which closed nearly all North American cinemas the 9th instalment in the Fast & Furious series finally got a release in June of this year, a year after its original scheduled release.
A 15 week run in cinemas gave the movie a total US gross of $173 Million, which even taking the delay into consideration is poor for a movie in this franchise.
Here is the top 10 movies in North America during 2021
