Paramount’s Bob Marley: One Love topped the UK and Ireland box office this weekend on £4.2m, while Sony’s Madame Web opened with a very soft £1.3m.

Reinaldo Marcus Green’s biopic played in 687 locations and racked up £6.9m including previews. The film opened above Elvis which scored £4m in its opening weekend back in June 2022, but behind Rocketman (2019, £5.3m) and Bohemian Rhapsody (2018, £6.4m). Green’s previous feature King Richard debuted on £540,878 back in 2021.

In second place was Universal animation Migration, up 11% on its third weekend with £2.8m. Taking full advantage of the half-term break, the film flew past the £10m mark and is now at £13.6m. 

Sony’s Madame Web landed third with £1.3m from 575 venues making for a £2,272 location average. It was just ahead of last year’s Blue Beetle which debuted on £1.2m for Warner Bros, though that film had the Hollywood strikes working against it.

With previews, the film has a total of £2.3m, behind Sony’s last live-action superhero title Morbius, which opened on £2.5m in 2022, and that of fellow female-led comic book title The Marvels which debuted with £3.5m back in November.

Universal action comedy Argylle passed £5m after taking £544,846 this weekend. 

Warner Bros’ Wonka re-entered the top five, adding a further £424,825 on its 11th session for a £62.2m cume.
