UK box office top 5 breakdown weekend 30th July - 1st August
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!
