UK box office preview: will ‘Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil’ topple ‘Joker’?

Other new openers include ‘Zombieland: Double Tap’ and ‘A Shaun The Sheep Movie: Farmageddon’.

Villains will battle at the UK box office this weekend as Disney sequel Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil looks to topple the Clown Prince of Crime, Joker, from the top spot.

The follow-up to 2014’s Maleficent sees Angelina Jolie return as the titular sorceress as she and her goddaughter Aurora (Elle Fanning) begin to question the complex family ties that bind them.

The first title opened to £6.6m in May 2014, although £2.8m of that came from previews and an opening on the Wednesday prior to its first weekend.
