The UK basked in the country’s first spell of warm weather of  2018 and it wasn’t good news for the box office this weekend. 

Rampage stayed top despite falling a substantial 55%, a drop that was consistent across the majority of titles on releases this weekend. The film added £1.4m and is now up to £6.5m to date.

Ready Player One stayed fourth in the chart, falling 58% with £502,000 taking it to a cume of £15.4m.

US fantasy horror Wilding, starring Liv Tyler, opened in 136 sites with £20,000 for a disappointing site average of £147.


A Quiet Place moved up to second this weekend with a gross of £1m and a decline of 46%, the lowest drop in the top 10. Three weeks into its run, the film is now up to £8.3m.


The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society, directed by Mike Newell, starring Lily James and based on a best-selling novel, opened to £824,847 from 494 sites including previews, placing it third in the chart.

Newell’s last effort as a director, the 2012 version of Great Expectations, opened with a softer £544,000 and went on to gross £2.5m. Guernsey could look to eclipse that figure, particularly if it delivers good midweek results by successfully tapping into the UK’s older cinema-going audience.


UK box office sensation Peter Rabbit dropped to fifth in the chart in its six weekend. The film fell 76% this weekend, due to the weather and the end of the school holidays. It added £486,000 from Friday to Sunday and has grossed £38.9m to date. 

As Screen reported on Friday, the film became Sony’s highest-grossing non-Bond UK release last week.


In its second weekend, horror film Truth Or Dare fell 57%, adding £400,198 for a cume of £1.7m.

The Leisure Seeker,  starring Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland, opened to a very soft £105,057 from its 376 site, an average of just £279.

US comedy Blockers added £113,309 and is now up to £3.8m.

20th Century Fox

The Greatest Showman retained a place in the top 10 for the 17th successive weekend, falling just one spot to seventh in the chart. The film is up to a total gross £45.4m after adding £304,510 from Friday to Sunday.  

One place behind in eighth this weekend was Love, Simon, which dropped 56% in its third week. The film added £274,243 and is up to £3.3m.

Isle Of Dogs fell out of the top 10, sitting 11th with a weekend gross of £159,442 for £5.5m to date.


Black Panther dropped to ninth in the chart, adding £235,000 over its tenth weekend for £49.9m. The film should cross £50m in the UK by Friday.

A Wrinkle In Time is up to £2.9m after adding £50,000.
