No surprises at all that the 25th Bond movie, and Daniel Craigs last, is still at the top on its second weekend, in fact no studio has released anything that could even challenge the movie, that comes next weekend.
The movie takes £15.2 Million on its second weekend which is a resonable 41% drop over its debut, this gives the movie a total UK gross of £52.6 Million.
It's confusing looking at how this compares with other Daniel Craig Bond movies, its not as good as SPECTRE, but in reality that movie had been out for 14 days by this point, its about the same as Skyfall but that movies wasn't released during a pandemic that closed cinemas for nearly 6 months, but its far better than Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale, one thing is for certain, the Daniel Craig era has been the most successful.
The movie is by far the top film of 2021 in the UK.
A sequel to the 2019 animated hit The Addams Family was always going to happen, and after a difficult year for cinema the sequel movie makes its debut at number 2 this weekend.
The movie takes a reasonable £2 Million on its debut, which is very similar to the originals debut at the same time of year in 2019.
Marvels smash hit movie falls to number 3 this weekend with a gross of £558,407, a slim 28% drop considering the movie is on its 6th weekend of release.
The total UK gross for the film sits at £20.5 Million, the second highest grossing movie of 2021 in the UK.
Marvel are set to have another good year at the box office after having no new movies for over a year, Black Widow did well a few months ago, and flowing this will be Eternals in a few weeks and Spider-Man: No Way Home in December both of which are setting themselves up to be massive holiday movies.
The animated kids film continues to do well at the box office and this weekend stays put at number 4 with £125,902, a 50% drop over last weekend, giving the movie a total UK gross of £8.3 Million over 9 weeks of release.
The prequel movie to The Sopranos stays put at number 5 this weekend with £125,404, a 47% drop, giving the movie a UK total of £1.8 Million after 3 weeks.

This is lower than the last three Bond movies, SPECTRE, Skyfall and Quantum of Solace but it is higher than Daniel Craig's first Bond outing Casino Royale.
This is unsurprising as the movie has been delayed many times, but it has had good word of mouth and favourable reviews, but people are still nervous going back to the cinema, but this movie, and a few big future releases, could change that.

It was always going to be a big first weekend for the much delayed 25th James Bond movie, and the last starring Daniel Craig, but there is a suggestion that it actually beat expectation as the movie makes its UK debut with £25.9 Million.
This 3 day (Friday - Sunday) gross is bigger than both Skyfall and SPECTRE (although SPECTRE officially had a 7 day opening of over £40 Million).
The movie has instantly become the top movie of 2021 in the UK beating the £20 Million of Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway.
It's also worth noting that the success and pent up anticipation for this movie effected the rest of the box office quite negatively as the movie took 91% of all money spent at the box office this weekend, meaning that (less than) 1 in every 10 tickets sold was NOT for this movie.
This will certainly get people back in the habbit of going to the cinema again and unlike when Warner release Tenet this time last year, people are ready to go back to cinemas now.
After 4 weeks at the top it is perhaps time for the Marvel superhero to give up the top spot, and as the top movie and this are attracting a similar audience this has suffered quite a bit as the movie take £779,077, a drop of 50% over last weekend.
This gives the movie a 5 week total of £19.6 Million and its the 3rd top movie of 2021 in the UK.
The Ryan Reynolds starring smash hit comedy action movie sits tight at number 3 this weekend with £270,266, a 51% drop, and its largest since relese.
This gives the movie a total gross of £16.5 Million after 8 weeks of release and its the 5th top movie of 2021.
The kids favourite dogs climb back up the box office from number 7 to number 4 this weekend with a gross of £251,511, an incredible 15% increase over last weekend.
The movie has now taken £8.1 Million over 8 weeks of release.
Falling hard this weekend is the prequel movie to The Sopranos which takes £237,150 on its second weekend, a massive 75% drop over last weekend, this gives the movie a total UK gross of £1.5 Million.
