It’s that time of the week when we take a quick look at the top 10 box office films in the UK. Do you like dinosaurs? Well clearly some of you do (and certainly the kids love them) as Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the latest instalment in the franchise enters the cinema charts at number one with massive box office takings. That means Disney’s Solo: A Star Wars Story drops to number two. With all that said let’s take a look in a little more detail of just how well those dinosaurs are doing against the competition, these are the figures for UK Cinema Charts June 8 2018.
UK Cinema Charts June 8 2018 (Box office results this weekend)
|1||New||Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom||Universal||£14,334,894|
|2||(1)||Solo: A Star Wars Story||Disney||£1,192,220|
|3||(2)||Deadpool 2||20th Century Fox||£1,182,010|
|5||(3)||Avengers: Infinity War||Disney||£406,119|
|7||(8)||Blade Runner: The Final Cut (Secret Cinema 2018)||Warner Bros||£226,459|
|8||(6)||Show Dogs||eOne Films||£201,435|
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’s managed box office takings of over £14.3m compare that against Solo: A Star Wars Story opening weekend takings of just £6m and Deadpool 2’s £12.9m and you can see just how well it’s done and all of this despite mixed reviews. That said it doesn’t come close to Avengers: Infinity War first weekend cinema takings of around £29.3m. Still Universal Pictures must be extremely pleased considering the film is still to open in America. The budget for the movie is believed to be somewhere around $170m and is already well on its way recouping that from its various releases around the globe so far.
Elsewhere there’s nothing particularly exciting happening in the rest of the chart except for the continued success of the sci-fi classic Blade Runner: The Final Cut again proving why cinemas should show more restored versions of classic film as it continues to do well under its Secret Cinema release taking another impressive amount at the box office, £226,459 to be precise.
