China ruled the global box office this week as the mega hit Wolf Warrior II had one of the biggest openings in China this year, second only to Fat and Furious 8.

With $125.9 million from only 5 countries, Wolf Warrior II directed by and starring Wu Jing, has a country average of an incredible $25.1 million.

The films total global gross so far is $142 million after a soft launch last week.

Dunkirk falls to second place this week with $73.7 million from 64 countries for a country average of $1.1 million.

This brings the films global total to a respectable $234.1, it should break the $300 million by next weekend.

Highest new film of the week is The Emoji Movie which lands at number 6 with $25.6 million from just the one country, America, which on a country average would put it ahead of the number 1 film by half a million dollars.

Despicable me 3 is the highest total grossing global hit on the top 10 with $819.2 million so far and is at number 3 this week.

At the US box office this weekend Pixar released its latest offering Cars 3 and although it took the top spot is was a relatively low opening for the animation studio at $53.5 million.

For a Cars film it was lower than either Cars or Cars 2, for a Pixar movie it was lower than all their films but Ratatouille.

Lightning McQueen and the gang have never been one of Pixar’s popular characters despite this being the third film and they have a themed area at Disneys California Adventure. so clearly someone at Pixar likes them.

Wonder Woman slips to second place on its third week of release, although it is still performing well with a $40.7 million weekend.

The total US gross of the film now sits at $274 million and will easily get to $300 million and has $400 million in its sights.

Also new this week is All Eyez On Me at number 3 with $27 million and 47 Meters Down at number 5 with $11.5 million, Rough Night also makes a new entry at number 7, the film had high hopes.

Longest running film and highest grossing film this week is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, 7 weeks and $374 million.

There is still no stopping the live action Beaty and The Beast as it holds off Scarlett Johansson in Ghost in The Shell as the manga adaptation debuts at number 2.

On its third weekend at the top of the UK box office Beauty and The Beast takes £6.7 million, yet again another excellent weekend gross.

This brings the films total gross to a fantastic £51 million over its 3 week UK release and by far makes it the top film of the year.

Making its debut in second place this week is the live action adaptation of the 1996 Manga film Ghost in The Shell.

Taking a relatively good £2.3 million the film has done well, but with the hype and mainly positive reviews we could have been looking at higher.

Maybe the film will be a slow burner and with many teens on Easter holidays this could do well over the coming weeks.

I'm sure its not escaped your attention that the top 2 films this week are live action versions of classic animations.

Also new this week is Smurfs The Lost Village at number 3 with £1.3 million, this film will do well in the next couple of weeks and could challenge Beauty and The Beast for the top spot.

Free Fire is at number 7 and the special cinema event in aid of Comic Relief Peter Kays Car Share A Second Series Celebration lands at number 10, and it was only shown in one cinema chain.

Many long running films are not around anymore hence the longest running film this week is Logan which has been around 5 weeks while Beauty and The Beast is the top grossing movie.

Audiences across the UK can't get enough of Belle and her beast as the Disney live action films scores a fantastic second weekend, Power rangers is the top new film at number 2.

A second weekend gross of £12.3 million for Beauty and The Beast is something most films would be happy to have as their debut weekend gross and would be in the top 100 highest grossers.

This brings the films total gross over 10 days to nearly £40 million and makes it the top grossing film of the year so far, overtaking La La Land.

With this type of momentum there is a chance it could end up being the top film of the year, although there are some big hitters coming later and a massive film at the tend of the year.

Power Rangers make their debut at number 2 this week in their revamped, re-booted, big budget incarnation to the tune of £1.5 million.

There was one other Power Rangers movie, back in 1995, based on the TV show it had the full title of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers The Movie and debuted in the UK to the tune of £1.3 million.

If we take inflation into account the 1995 film did far better and would today have debuted to the tune of £3.2 million.

Worth noting is that if the chart were counted for the whole week rather than just Friday - Sunday Power Rangers would have been at number 5 this week.

Also new this week is The Lost City of Z debuting at 7 with £0.28 million and CHiPs at number 8 with £0.2 million.

Longest running film this week is The Lego Batman Movie which has been around now for 7 weeks and the top grossing movie, after just 10 days is Beauty and The Beast.

The Duncan Jones film is released in 53 countries and this weekend takes $210.1 million of which $185.8 of that was outside North America.

The total gross of the film now sits at a not too bad $286 million, it will pass £300 this week but might struggle after that.

Released in 45 countries the film takes $90.3 million led by its number 1 debut in North America.

With the film now is 78 countries, and in particular America, Bonds latest film Spectre increases its lead on the global box office, more than doubling last weeks gross.

A second weekend world gross of $190 million brings its total world gross to just why of $300 million, it has now been in cinemas for 14 days.

It still has a way to go to beat Skyfall's $1.1 billion gross but it is on tract to do so but may struggle, it is well on track to beat Quantum of Solace $570 million.

Box office wise Daniel Craig has been far and away the most successful Bond and his 4 outings will have out grossed all other Bonds, even taking inflation into consideration, by the end of Spectres run.

Also doing well this week is Snoopy and Charlie Brown The Peanuts Movie which is the highest new film of the week at 2, from 12 countries it grosses just shy of $50 million.

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel makes it 3 weeks at the top in a very quiet weekend at the UK box office.

A third weekend take of £1.4 million sees The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel bring it's total up to 1£1.7 million which is keeping it in-line (a little ahead in fact) to it's predecessor.

Highest new film of the week is Run All Night starring Liam Neeson and Ed harris which enters the box office at number 2.

A relatively low opening gross of just over £800,00 will probably see the film disappear quite quickly from the box office chart.

The only other new film opening on the top 10 this week is Suite Francaise at number 4 with a half a million debut.

This weeks chart was down on this time last year when the Nanny McPhee sequel topped the chart in its debut week and high grossers Alice in Wonderland and Avatar were starting to slip out of the cinemas.

Now the dust has settled on the WWDC keynote speech given last night (morning?) by Steve Jobs where he announced the next version of the iPhone, aside from the new front camera, speed and iOS4 operating system, the big news was the screen and it's HD goodness.

First of all the screen uses what is being called a Retina display, Jobs claims it's better than OLED. The displays pixels are 78 micrometers wide which allows the screen to have 4x the resolution of the iPhone 3Gs. This means the screen has 326 pixels per inch, the naked eye can only see 300 pixels per inch, which means that the screen is better than human eyesight.

What this means in layman's terms is that the iPhone can handle 780p HD video, and according to reports the screen is amazing. The screen is 960x640 pixels in resolution and has a contrast ration of 800:1, pretty good for a screen so small.

This wont stop you from getting neck ache, and could possible make your eyes hurt even more when watching Lord of the Rings on the device, but at least that Blu-ray transfer you make will look absolutely amazing, and if you were to attach the iPhone to a HDTV then you could potentially have your own portable video library.

Check out the Apple website for more info.

Movies cost too much, and Hollywood blockbusters cost way too much, unless your name happens to be James Cameron and you can make back to back billion dollar movies the chances are your film will struggle to make big money at the box office. It makes me laugh then to see that the production budget of Pirates of the Caribbean 4 has been slashed from $300 million to just $200 million!

I'm old enough to remember when the likes of Terminator 2's (there's that Cameron fellow again) production budget went over $200 million and it was a massive deal because no other movie had done that, in fact most movies back in the early ‘90s cost less than $100 million.

Because of the budget cuts it means that some of the extravagant scenes in the film have been cut completely, and shooting locations will have less time spent at them. This is all down to the new Disney boss who is trying to tighten the belt on money spent.

The last Pirates movie took over $1bn dollars in world box office takings, so is it money well spent or does even Disney think they have taken the series one step too far? I think they took it one step too far when they made the sequel.
