News
There were two new big entries on the box office this week and the 2016 reboot of Ghostbusters was the highest of them.

Directed by Paul Feig and starring Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig the new take on the classic 1984 film tops the UK box office with £4.3 million.

The original movie took a total of £12 million in the UK and time will tell if this will climb to those height.

The Secret Life of Pets falls to number 3 after 3 weeks at the top with a weekend gross of £2 million gross which brings the films total gross to £25.7 million.

The Secret Life of Pets is also the highest total grossing film on this weeks box office.

Also new this week at number 2 is the 5th in the Ice Age series Ice Age Collision Course, its debut gross is £3.7 million.

Historical charts

A year ago
Marvels smallest hero Ant-Man made its debut at the top of the box office with Minions falling into second place.

Five years ago
The last Harry Potter film Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2 made its debut at the top while Transformers: Dark of The Moon falls into second place.

Ten years ago
Holding on to the top spot was Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Mans Chest leaving Superman Returns to debut at number 2.

Fifteen years ago
Shrek went back to the top of the box office knocking off Lara Croft Tomb Raider while the highest new film was as low as 5 in the shape of Pokémon 3 The Movie.

Twenty years ago
Mission:Impossible held on to the top spot keeping The Cable Guy off the top and leaving it to debut at number 2.

Twenty five years ago Thelma and Louise made its debut at the top knocking off The Naked Gun 2 ˝ The Smell of Fear after a couple of weeks at the top.

There is still life in old franchises as Paramount prove this week with the release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Out of the Shadows.

Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird created the mutant turtles is 1984 with the first film appearing in 1990 and this is the 6th film to bear the name although it has been rebooted a couple of times.

26 years then after their first appearance they climb to the top of the US box office with their latest film and sequel to the 2014 film.

A $35 million weekend sees it easily dislodge X-Men Apocalypse which falls from the top to number 2 after a 2 week stay.

Also new this week in America us Me Before You which enters at number 3 and Popstar Never Stop Never Stopping which is new at 8.

Top total grossing film in the US at the moment is Captain America: Civil War with $389 million and longest stay on the chart is 8 weeks from The Jungle Book.

As expected the movie version of Mrs. Browns Boys took the top spot at the UK box office, and with quite a strong margin over the rest.

On it's debut weekend Mrs. Brown's Boys D'Movie took an incredible £4.3 million, far higher than expected and proving that the Irish sit-com has quite a following.

I suspect that this is a fairly front loaded event and we could see it fall quite sharply, I dont think it has the lasting appeal of movie like The Inbetweeners Movie.

Falling to the runner up spot this week is The Fault in our stars which made £1.7 million from the weekend bringing it's 10 day gross to £6.7 million.

Other new film to chart this week are:
Chef at 5
How to Train Your Drans 2 (still only on previews) at 6
Walking on Sunshine at 7
Cold in July at 11
Ek Villain at 12
Punjab 1984 at 13

This time last year Despicable Me 2 hit the top of the box office on it's debut week of release, it would go on to be the top film in the UK of 2013, it knocked Man of Steel into 2nd place.

Five years ago Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was still the top film in the UK and Year One with Jack Black was the highest new film at 3.

Ten years ago it was still Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban at the top while the top new film of the week was Tom Hanks on Lady Killers at 4.

Fifteen years ago Brendan Fraser made a big screen comeback in The Mummy which debuted at the top of the box office knocking The Matrix into the runner up spot after only a week.
