Uk Weekend Box Office Top 5 Breakdown 17th 19th June 2022

Jurassic World Dominion

Second weekend at the top for the Jurassic World sequel movie as it takes £5.7 Million over the weekend, a large 53% drop over its debut last weekend.

This gives the movie a total UK gross of £21.7 Million after 10 days of release and gives it the 8th top movie of 2022.

So far this is the lowest grossing movie of the Jurassic World series, although it is still tracking to be one of the top 5 movies of 2022 in the UK.

Despite the fact the movie was delayed over a year, and the 36 years between the two movies no one could have imagined how successful this sequel to Top Gun was going to be.

This weekend the movie takes £4.2 Million on its fourth weekend, this is a small 24% over the previous week.

The movie has now taken an incredible £57.3 Million in the UK and is showing no signs of slowing down.

The sequel movie is currently the 25th top movie in the UK, comparing it to the top movie of all time in the UK Star Wars: The Force Awakens that movie has taken £108.4 Million on its fourth weekend, so this is tracking about half that, although the 2015 Star Wars sequel had a massive built in audience, this is slow burning and using word of mouth.

The movie is the top film of 2022 in the UK where is could stay until the end of the year.


Top new movie of the weekend is the first Pixar movie to get a cinema release since the CGI animated studio released Onward at the start of 2020 as the world locked down to COVID-19.

This Buzz Lightyear origins movie from the Toy Story series of films makes its debut to £3.7 Million, with mixed reviews clearly damaging its box office performance.

Onward from 2020 make a similar debut but that was a world that was starting to shutdown with the public getting nervous about spending time in rooms with lots of people.

Another new movie this weekend making its debut at number 4 as Emma Thompson and Daryl McCormack star in Sophie Hyde's new movie.

The film makes its debut on the UK box office with £238,640.

The MCU sequel movie falls to number 3 this weekend with £169,578 on its 7th weekend, this gives the movie a total UK gross of £41 Million and its the 2nd top movie of 2022.
