The only real challenge came from Beatles-focused comedy Yesterday, which took $3.404m across 281 screens for its first week out. The film, distributed by Universal, tells the story of a musician who finds himself as the only person to remember the Beatles.

It was directed by Trainspotting director Danny Boyle and written by famed romcom writer Richard Curtis who also wrote Four Weddings and a Funeral, and Notting Hill.

Also out for the first week, Annabelle Comes Home took $1.932m across 256 screens. The film is a sequel to 2014’s Annabelle and 2017’s Annabelle: Creation and comes as the seventh movie in the Conjuring universe.

Annabelle Comes Home was written and directed by Gary Dauberman, from a story co-written by Conjuring universe regular James Wan. Wan also directed the 2004 horror classic, Saw.

In fourth spot on the weekend box office ranking, The Secret Life of Pets 2 took $1.525m for its second week out, a 27% drop from week one, giving it a running total of $4.038m. Disney’s live-action Aladdin remake held the fifth spot, bringing in $1.160m for its sixth weekend out, for a running total of $30.473m.

Men in Black: International took sixth position with $1.137m for its third week, Elton John biopic Rocketman held seventh with $958,620 for week five, John Wick: Chapter Three brought in $355,648 for the seventh week out, and Avengers: Endgame, which is now only showing across 97 screens, took ninth place with $333,179 for the 11th week of its release.

Tenth position was nabbed by Madman’s Parasite which took $300,388 across just 38 screens. The South Korean black comedy, directed by Bong Joon-ho, tells the story of the destitute Kim family and their relationship with the wealthy Park family. It won the coveted Palme d’Or at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, becoming the first Korean film to ever receive the award.
