Warner Bros’ Elvis topped the UK-Ireland box office chart on its opening weekend, with a three-day weekend of just over the £4m mark.

Playing in 742 locations, Elvis took an average of £5,423 per cinema. Compared to other titles opening this year in over 700 locations, it topped the £3.1m from 746 sites of Downton Abbey: A New Era and £2.2m from 705 of Belfast, but was down on the £5.9m from 714 of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets Of Dumbledore.

Among music biopic comparisons, Paramount’s Rocketman  started with £5.3m in 2019, ending on £23.5m; Warner Bros will hope for Elvis to push past the £20m mark across its run.

Jurassic World: Dominion dropped 40.3% on its third weekend in cinemas, adding £3.4m to reach a £27.1m cume. While recording strong total, it will finish short of the £64.5m of Jurassic World, and is a long shot to reach the £41.6m of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

Top Gun: Maverick held well again for Paramount, dropping just 21% with £3.37m taking it to £63.05m from five weekends. The film is now in the top 25 highest-grossing films of all time in the territory, passing all three The Lord Of The Rings titles within the last week, and with Jurassic World’s £64.5m next in its sights. 

Disney’s animation franchise title Lightyear dropped 38.4% on its second weekend, adding £2.3m to reach a £6.9m cume. It will end well short of the totals of Toy Story 3  (£74.1m) and Toy Story 4  (£66.2m).

Universal horror The Black Phone started with a £921,915 three-day weekend. Adding in £462,194 of previews, the film has a full opening just shy of £1.4m.

Staying in the top 10 after a lengthy 13-week run, Paramount’s Sonic The Hedgehog 2 added £65,000 – a 27% drop – to reach £26.7m total.
