Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi blockbuster Tenet topped the UK and Ireland box office for a second consecutive weekend, grossing £2.1m.
The film has now grossed £10m, making it the seventh highest-grossing film of the year so far in what is a unique time for film releases. It fell back 35% on its opening weekend total and brought in just short of a 70% share of the total market.
The New Mutants, Disney’s first major release since cinemas reopened, took £359,562 on its opening Friday-Sunday, playing in 540 locations for a £668 average.
The film started previews the week before and has grossed £686,360 in total.
After We Collided, the latest in the After series adapted from Anna Todd’s novels, opened to an outstanding £174,645 from just 40 locations, for a £4,366 location average - the second-highest since cinemas reopened, behind only Tenet. Including previews, the film has £254,771 at an average of £6,369. The film is expanding to over 100 locations for next weekend. Voltage/Shear Entertainment are distributing.

Vertigo Releasing’s Australian family animation 100% Wolf continues to perform well under the circumstances, grossing £96,820 to take it past the £1m mark after six weekends.
