Can ‘Fighting With My Family’ wrestle top spot from ‘The LEGO Movie 2’?

Stephen Merchant’s solo directorial debut Fighting With My Family leads the openers at the UK box office this weekend, and will look to dethrone three-time champion The LEGO Movie 2 from the summit.

The film, which premiered as a ‘secret screening’ in Sundance this year, follows a family of wrestlers from Norwich, as siblings Saraya and Zak work to make it in the WWE. Screen Stars of Tomorrow Florence Pugh (2016) and Jack Lowden (2014) lead the cast, which also includes Nick Frost, Lena Headey and executive producer and former wrestler Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Lionsgate is distributing the film.

It opened in 532 venues on Wednesday 27 February, making £165,000 on that day and £161,000 the following, topping the charts on both days. Including previews which have run since February 18, it has £396,000 heading into its first weekend.

Avengers Endgame box office set for record-breaking opening with how many MILLION? This April the sequel to last year’s Avengers Infinity War will be released and it’s expected to make even more money than its predecessor. According to Blomberg, Avengers Endgame will have the biggest opening of all time in North America. The current record holder is Avengers Infinity War with $258 million, which topped Star Wars The Force Awaken’s $248 million. However, Avengers Endgame is set to make a whopping $282 million.
