It’s been a busy summer of films and that means we have yet another new number one with Disney’s Christopher Robin. It managed cinema revenue of £2.55m. One film that simply refuses to go away is musical Mamma Mia: Here we Go Again! that remains at two taking over £2.2m from 673 cinemas and gross to date figures of £54.5m after five weeks on release.
Last week’s number one The Meg slips to three taking £2.1m. Two new entries occupy four and five, with Denzel Washington’s The Equalizer 2 taking the number four slot managing box office revenue of £1.98m from 493 cinemas. Perhaps a surprise entry or maybe not is the low budget The Festival landing at five and taking over £1.4 million. It’s from the creators of the popular TV series The Inbetweeners and even stars one of them with Joe Thomas.
Two films leaving the UK top ten after just two weeks on release are thriller The Darkest Minds and internet horror Unfriended: Dark Web although it should be noted neither are showing in that many cinemas compared to those movies higher in the charts, 279 and 178 respectively.
This week’s top 10 film took a combined box office total of £15,986,556 compared to last week’s £16,447,408 we will be keeping an eye on these figures so we can accurately gauge just how well the cinema / film industry is doing.
