20th September 2022
This weekend marks the lowest grossing total weekend since 4th September 2020 when Tenet was the top movie of the weekend and the country was still in the grips of the COVID-19 pandemic.
See How They Run~2020 remains at the top for a second weekend while the only new movie of the weekend is the David Bowie documentary Moonage Daydream at number 10.
Remaining at number 1 this weekend is the comedy murder mystery from director Tom George starring Saoirse Ronan which takes £984,779 on its second weekend of release, a small 15% drop from last weekend.
The movie remains at the top largely because there was no major new release on the box office this weekend, the movie has taken £2.8 Million over its 2 weeks of release.
When there is nothing new at the cinema people go and see the old movies they missed, hence the Brad Pitt action/comedy jumps back up to number 2 from 8 on its 7th weekend of release with £325,252, a small 6% drop over last weekend.
The movie has taken £10.3 Million at the UK box office over its 7 weeks of release.
Another big movie jumping back up the box office is the sequel movie to Minions which jumps back from 5 to 3 on its 12th weekend with £321,746, a 16% drop over last weekend.
The Despicable Me universe movie has now taken £45.1 Million in the UK over its 17 weeks and is the second top movie of 2022 in the UK.
Making a magnificent movie back into the top 5 bouncing from 9th to 4th is the movie of the summer which takes £320,963 on its 17th weekend on the box office, and this weekend gross is an amazing 3% higher than last weekend.
The movie is the top film of 2022, and will end up that way by the end of the year as Avatar: The Way of Water wont have the steam to get past a billion in 2022 as its release is so late in the year.
The movie is also the 8th top movie of all time in the UK having jumped over Star Wars: The Last Jedi this week, I would say the £89 Million of Avengers: Endgame is out of its range but you simply never know with this film!
The animated feature from the Warner Bros. DC Universe jumps one place to number 5 this weekend with £307,920, a 16% drop over last weekend.
the movie has taken £14.8 Million in the UK over its 8 weeks of release.

Horror movie Barbarian~2022 makes its debut at the top of the North American box office this weekend while Indian movie Brahmastra Part 1: Shiva is also new coming in at number 2.
Further down the box office there are new entries for Lifemark at number 7 with $2.2 Million and Medieval at number 14 with $810,000.
The celebrated horror movie from director Zach Cregger who also directed Miss March in 2009 hits the top of the North American box office on its debut weekend of release.
In a very quiet weekend for the box office through lack of high profile releases the movie takes $10 Million on its debut.
Despite that fact the Indian movie RRR was a bit hit earlier this year in North American it is not that common for Hindi speaking film to do well in America, but given the lack of new movie this movie from director Ayan Mukerji hits number 2 on its debut.
The movie takes $4.4 Million this weekend, in comparison RRR tool $9.5 Million in March landing at number 3, but it was a far busier period for the box office.
The Brad Pitt starring movie falls to number 3 this weekend with a gross of $3.2 Million, a large 43% drop but it is on its 6th weekend of release.
The movie has taken a total of $92.5 Million at the North American box office as it looks at the $100 Million milestone.
The biggest movie of the year, so far, drops to number 4 this weekend after hitting the top spot on the last weekend of the summer, this weekend it takes $3.1 Million which is a 47% drop over last weekend, still not bad for a movie on its 16th weekend of release.
This gives the movie a total gross in North America of $705.6 Million which means it is, and most likely will be, the top movie of 2022, the movie has also made its way into the top 5 movies of all time in America as its sits at number 5.
It has a long way to go to get any higher with Avatar sitting at number 4 with $760.5 Million, this seems out of reach for a movie which is coming to the end of its box office life, but I wouldn't write off this movie to do anything just yet!
The animated movie from Warner Bros. falls to number 5 this weekend with $2.8 Million on its 7th weekend, a 44% drop giving it a total North American gross of $85.4 Million.

In a fascinating weekend for the UK box office a 10 week old movie, Minions: The Rise of Gru goes back to the top, a 15 week old movie, Top Gun: Maverick goes back into the top 5 and a 2021 movie and one of the top grossing movies in the UK is the top new release, Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Adding to this the second highest new movie is E.T. The Extra Terrestrial celebrating its 40th anniversary, yes 40 years since the release of the once global highest grossing movie of all time!
Less impressive this weekend is the debut releases for Three Thousand Years of Longing which is new at 10 with £307,176, Fall~2022 new at 13 with £220,270 and The Forgiven~2021 new at 15 with £182,772.
Going back to the top of the UK box office, once again, is the sequel movie to Minions which 5 weeks after it was last at the top, and 10 weeks after it was first at the top it takes £1.06 Million to return to the top, a 46% jump over last weekend.
With no high profile new releases now in the last couple of weeks, and the end of the school summer holidays, and the bargain price of £3 per ticket on Saturday this is perhaps not too much of a surprise.
The movie has now taken £44 Million in the UK and is the second top movie of 2022, it is also the 61st top movie of all time.
Interestingly the movie is behind the first Minions movie but it has been consistently about £1 Million behind.

This gives the movie a total UK gross of £9.2 Million.
Highest new movie of the weekend
Getting a re-release to celebrate National Cinema Day is the 2021 Spider-Man release from Marvel and Sony with a little help Disney.
The movie takes a quite incredible £469,309 on its return to the box office, incredible because the movie is the 4th biggest movie of all time in the UK and it was only in cinemas earlier this year, and although there is 20 minites extra footage it does not change the story and makes it a 3 hour movie!
Still the movie has now spent 16 weeks on the chart and taken an amazing £96.9 Million, it is also the 8th top movie of 2022.
