UK box office predictions w/c 25th November: How did we do?
We took a bit of a punt last week by saying that Knives Out would debut third but it actually performed much better than we’d expected grossing nearly £3m. While we were a little off the mark by saying that Last Christmas would stay second, the film is still performing well after taking £1.5m and slipping down just one place to third.
Unsurprisingly, Frozen 2 kept hold of the top spot. Blue Story held as well as we’d expected and stayed in fourth place. Charlie’s Angel’s did a little better than we’d expected, appearing in fifth (which will still no doubt be seen as a disappointment by the studio).

What’s happening at the UK Box Office this week?
It will the most unusual weekend of the year. Jumanji: The Next Level is receiving a wide release on Saturday, with a few selected previews on Friday. This means that it will lose nearly a day’s worth of earnings on its opening weekend. Even though we think the film will be a big hit, it’s hard to see how it will be able to top Frozen II with this restriction. At the very least, it will be a tight battle.
The next biggest release will be the noir drama Motherless Brooklyn, which opens on over 300 screens across the country. It’s received fair reviews, with the Guardian describing it as a ‘a respectable if heavy-going’ crime thriller. The box office is starting to get crowded with big releases that are holding well, such as Last Christmas, Blue Story and Le Mans 66, so we think that Motherless Brooklyn will struggle to debut in the top ten.
