The UK box office figures are back on hold again as the UK experiences another lockdown and cinemas across England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales close.

Two cinemas remained open Broadway and Palace on the Isle Of man and The Mallard Cinema in the Channel Islands, both run under different rules.


These cinemas showed the latest hit movies including Wonder Woman 1984 as well as older hits like 1917.

The lockdown is due to end on 15th February but the UK government has said it could go on longer.

With a COVOD-19 vaccine rapidly starting to be administered across the country it is hoped that this could be the last lockdown and then perhaps the UK box office can start to return to normal.

With no big new releases on the US box office over the new year the top movie jiggle around a bit but there is nothing of note.

The highest new movie is at number 13 in the shape of Shadow In The Cloud, directed by Roseanne Liang and starring Chloƫ Grace Moretz which debuts with a gross of $40,000.
