2nd January 2022
The UK box office came to a grinding halt in January of 2021 as the global pandemic took full grip of the country so there was no chart until the middle of May.
Once cinemas opened it was a slow start Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway coming out on top for the first few weeks, it wasn't until late June when Fast & Furious 9 was released that things started to hot up, then things started to go from strength to strength.
Here is a breakdown of the top 5 movie of 2021 at the UK box office.
The much delayed 25th movie in the Bond series finally got released at the very end of September 2021 and after a massive debut weekend where it took nearly £26 Million the movie managed to do what Tenet the previous year couldn't, it got people mack in cinemas.
The movie, which is still on general release got mixed reviews from critics, and has an ending with split Bond fans, but to date the movie has taken £96.4 Million over 12 weeks of release and is the third highest grossing movie of all time in the UK.
The last movie from the MCU universe to be released in a year when Marvel/Disney/Sony had a fantastic return to cinemas, and after all the hype and rumours about what the multiverse would bring the movie took a massive &pond;31.9 Million on its debut in the UK.
The film was released in mid December so it still raking in the cash as your local multiplex, and will most likely overtake No Time To Die with its total gross as well as be only the third movie in history to gross over £100 Million.
With a total gross already over £50 Million after just 2 weeks it will most likely feature quite high on the top movies of 2022 as well.
Another MCU movie on the list of top movies if 2021 as the much anticipated new superhero hit cinemas in early September with a debut gross of £5.7 Million.
Over a 9 week run at the box office the movie took £21.8 Million making it the third top movie of the year
Visionary director Denis Villeneuve is fast becoming one of the most respected film makers in Hollywood and his much anticipated version of the classic sci-fi noval Dune hit cinemas in October with £5.8 Million.
The movie took £21.8 Million over 9 weeks of release in the UK in 2021 to make it the 4th to movie of the year.
THe first big hit of the year once cinemas in the UK started to re-open, its a sequel to 2018 movie Peter Rabbit which was a huge hit so this was a sure fire hit.
The movie made the top of the box office on its release and was the top movie of the year for quite a long run, the film took £20.4 Million over a 17 week run and is the 5th top movie of 2021.
Here is the top 10 movies in North America during 2021
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.
31st December 2021
A year where cinema had a difficult start and was dominated by movies from China as their cinema industry flourished ended with Bond, Superhero movies (as usual), a Chinese mega hit movie and was seen out by the first $1 Billion movie in almost 2 years.
Here is a breakdown of the top 5 movie of 2021 at the global box office.
Spider-Man: No Way Home has had an amazing December at the global box office as it became the top movie of 2021, after only 2 weeks of release it has taken over $1.1 Billion globally.
The movie is in fact the only film of 2021 to go over the milestone of 1 Billion dollars, and as no movie in 2020 came anywhere near the milestone it's the first movie since 2019 to do it.
Released primarily in China The Battle At Lake Changjin looked like it was going to be the top movie of the year, but it was not to be as it was pipped at the post by a superhero movie and so has to contend with the runner up spot.
The movie took an amazing $902.2 Million, even more amazing considering it was only released in China.
The Chinese movie was only released globally in China, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand, and yet still managed to take $822 Million globally in 2021.
The comedy is the 3rd top film of the year and considering it was released in a time when much of the world was either closed or on very limited cinema capacity it gave comedic relief for parts of the world.
By the time the 25th Bond movie was released in cinemas it had been delayed many times and the world was ready to see Daniel Craigs last Bond movie.
Cinema goers in many countries were still unsure about going back into a dark with with strangers, but this movie is the 4th top movie of 2021 having taken $765 Million.
Another movie that got delayed by over a year from its original release, it also had a very staggered global release but it still managed to gross $710.6 Million making it the 5th top movie of 2021.
It took no where near the last few movies in the series, but even with the issues cinema has had this year its a great overal global take.
