UK Box Office Predictions: Will Alita Or Lego Slay The Dragon?

In a new section we look at the UK box office and, using cutting edge technology (a small piece of paper and 20 minutes of arguing) we try to work out what film will top the charts.

Will Alita Or Lego Slay The Dragon? Read Fantasy Film League’s Weekend UK Box Office Predictions For The Top 10 UK Films, 8-12 February.

UK Box Office Predictions: Will Alita Or Lego Slay The Dragon?

This week sees quite a fight for the top spot at the UK box office, with new releases Alita: Battle Angel and The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part both competing for the top spot. The original LEGO Movie was the UK’s number 1 film in 2014, earning a huge haul of £34.27m, so our money is on the zany toy bricks!

In fact, poor weather last weekend for much of the UK could mean that How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World’s excellent £5.32m debut might have actually been an underperformance. As long as The Lego Movie 2 doesn’t steal too much of the family audience, we expect that this could hold on to second place. Alita’s mixed Rotten Tomatoes score may also be a factor in the film not breaking into the top two.

The other newcomer to look out for is Kenneth Branagh’s return to (and transformation into) Shakespeare for All Is True. While this has the potential to break into the top five, it’s aimed at an older demographic who don’t usually rush out to see films on the first weekend of release so we can’t see it getting past M. Night Shyamalan‘s box office smash Glass.
