After a release last week in some smaller location Despicable Me 3 gets its wider global release and tops the chart in the process.

Diminishing returns for the series means the third film gets the lowest wide release of the series but it still manages a $171 million for the week from 53 countries.

This brings the films total global gross to $192.3 million, well below the other films in the series and with Despicable Me 2 grossing just under a billion dollars and Minions taking $1.1 billion this one could fall way short.

Transformers: The Last Knight made its debut at the top last week but this week falls to number 2, small $85 million week gross from 45 countries takes the films total to $429.9 million.

Baby Driver this week goes to 17 countries sits at number 4 with $27.8 million which brings the films total gross to $36.8 million.

Highest new film of the week is The House starring Will Farrell and Amy Poehler which debuts at 9 with $11.7 million from 21 countries.

Wonder Woman is the top total grossing film of the week, currently at number 3 its taken $707.9 million in world grosses.

Directed by Guy Ritchie King Arthur Legend of the Sword makes its UK debut at the top of the box office, but its an unconvincing start to its box office run.

Taking £2.5 million from the weekend the film which had a massive budget and is set to start a new series of films was expected to smash its way into the box office from studio Warner Bros.

For the director this is below the debut of his top grossing films the Sherlock Holmes movies starring Robert Downey Jnr. which both debuted in the £3 million mark.

Falling into second place is Alien: Covenant which only just missed out on spending a second week at the top with a weekend gross of £2.1 million.

This brings the films total gross to £10 million, Prometheus at this point in its run was doing very similar business so expect this to end its run with a similar £20 million+.

Also new this week is Snatched starring Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn at number 4 with a debut of £842,000 and Colossal starring Anne Hathaway at number 9 with £150,000.

Historical Chart A year ago
This time last year as the summer season kicked into full swing X-Men Apocalypse entered the chart at the top knocking Captain America: Civil War down to number 4.

Five years ago
The Dictator starring Sasha Baron Cohen was the new film at the top, it knocked Avengers Assemble down to number 2 after 3 weeks at the top.

Ten years ago
Spider-Man 3 stayed at the top for a third weekend, top new film of the week was Zodiac directed by David Fincher at number 3.

Fifteen years ago
Star Wars Episode II: Attack of The Clones was the top new film of the weekend, it knocked About a Boy down to number 2 after 3 weeks at the top.

Twenty years ago
Liar Liar remained at the top for a third weekend while the top new film was The Relic at number 2.

Twenty Five years ago
Spending a second weekend at the top was Basic Instinct, top new film of the week was Waynes World which was new at 2.

It was a weekend when everyone thought the big budget film King Arthur Legend of The Sword was going to dominate, Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 still took the crown and comedy Snatched come in highest on Mothers Day weekend.

Its the second weekend of release for Chris Pratt and director James Gunn and Guardians easily holds on to the top spot with a massive $63 million, 57% drop from last weeks debut.

This brings the films total gross from 10 day in cinemas to $246.1 million, its inline with other big Marvel films and well ahead if the first Guardians film.

Highest new film honour goes to Snatched starring Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn about a mother and daughter who get kidnapped in a foreign country, good timing to release on Mothers Day.

The film makes its debut in second place with a weekend gross of $17.5 million, although with mediocre reviews we could see this slip away quickly.

Directed by Guy Ritchie and with a massive $200 million+ budget the studio were hoping for a mega hit on their hands, but King Arthur Legend of The Sword has limed into US cinema in third with $14.7 million.

Beauty and the Beast is once again the longest running film on the US box office, 9 weeks now, and its the highest total grossing movie with nearly half a billion pound in takings.

This week saw Arrival make its debut at the top of the UK box office among great reviews and last weeks top film fell to number 2.

Starring Amy Adam and directed by acclaimed director Denis Villeneuve Arrival makes its UK debut at the top of the UK box office charts with just shy of £3 million pound.

This is a better opening that in many other countries like America where is could only manage a top 3 entry, although Doctor Strange is still only 10 days old over there.

Talking of Doctor Strange, in the UK it falls from the top to number 2, after 2 weeks at number 1 and a 3rd weekend of £2.3 million the films total gross is not £19.5 million.

For a second weekend the longest running film and highest total grossing film of the week is Bridget Jones's Baby, 9 weeks on the film has grossed £47.5 million, and its the second highest grossing film of the year.

Twenty five years ago
The Fisher King was the top new film of the week, it knocked Dead Again down to number 2 after a couple of weeks at the top.

Keeping a strong hold of the US box office on its second week of release is Doctor Strange which held off not only smash animated film Trolls but top new film Arrival.

A second weekend gross of $43 million brings the US gross of the Marvel film to $153 million after 10 days of release.

This is keeping the film well in line with many of the Marvel film and its looking good for the Benedict Cumberbatch film going forward.

Highest new film of the week is the Denis Villeneuve directed Arrival, which lands on the US box office at number 3.

The high brow drama of aliens arriving on earth with no communication with anyone stars Amy Adams and takes $24 million on its opening weekend.

Doctor Strange is the highest total grossing film on the US box office this week but the longest running film is The Accountant which notches up 5 weeks this week and is at number 6

After a fairly lacklustre summer season of 2016 where the highlight was a bunch of anti-heroes in the shape of the Suicide Squad, will the Autumn schedule deliver?

We had high hopes but had few thrills, out side of the DC movie Suicide Squad Ghostbusters gave us a good laugh but didn't deliver as expected Finding Dory pulled in the audiences but left us flat.

The rest of the year has some highlights but there is caution as the 2 biggest films are both sequels outside of their parent film series.

Before we even get to them in the latter part of the year we have a number of promises, Captain Fantastic starring Viggo Mortensen looks promising and American hit Kubo and The Two String gives a refreshing animation outside Disney.

Of course we have British favourite Bridget Jones's Baby which is getting good reviews at the moment and a bit after that the recently announced Blair Witch remake/reboot/sequel.

Getting a lot of marketing hype is the remake/retelling of The Magnificent Seven and the looking promising, and a return to form for Tim Burton is Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children.

Tom Hanks returns to detective mode for a third time in Inferno, although I didn't like the previous 2 films and then another sequel emerges mid October with Tom Cruise in Jack Reacher Never Go Back.

Marvel return to their cinematic universe with a new hero in the shape of Doctor Strange and another sequel/reboot come in early November with Rings, the next in (surprise) The Ring series.

After the hotly anticipated Arrival starring Amy Adams arrives the season kicks up a gear with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the first move into the Wizarding World outside Harry Potter.

The film, penned by J. K. Rowling, is being hyped to death and not surprisingly, the 8 Potter films did fantastic business at the box office and this is directed by series expert David Yates whic just seems to get the ideas Rowling writes about.

Warner Bros. will be hoping this shows there is still life in the seemingly dormant series and please fans of the original and set up a new generation, 2 more film are already planned.

After that injection things go quiet with unwanted sequel Bad Santa 2 and Tom Hanks (again) in Scully the story of the pilot who landed a plane on the Hudson River.

Then to finish the year off another much lover series goes off piste with Rogue One A Star Wars Story, taking place just before the events of the original Star Wars.

The trailer have looked good and after the excellence of Star Wars: The Force Awakens expectation are massive.

This is a massive risk for Lucasfilms and Disney, and it will either boost the series to height never imagined or will do to the series what Episodes I - III did and nearly kill it, fortunately it has recovered!

To round the rear off we have Michael Fassbender trying to do what many other have failed to do and bring a video game series to the screen in Assassins Creed.

Amy Adams and Jeremy Renner star in this intriguing looking film due for release in November.

No surprise to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens remain at the top of the video sales chart this week.

Destined to be one of the top selling films of the year, the home video release of the top film ever in the UK is still selling is large quantities.

Highest new film of the week is the Tina Fey and Amy Poehler co starring film Sisters.

Sisters was released at the UK box office the same weekend as The Force Awakens, and did quite well considering with an opening weekend of £1.2 million.

The film did only hang around for 4 weeks in total and during that time took a small £2.6 million.

Despite the good reviews the film did do that well, but it was in a time when the world was gripped in Star Wars fever and nothing else really mattered.

Also new this week are 2 other new releases: Joy is new at 3, Exposed is new at number 7, IP Man 3 enters at number 10 and Krampus is new at number 12.

The latest in the growing saga of Terminator films, Terminator Genysis, this weeks makes its debut on the UK video charts at the top.

Terminator Genisys was released at the UK box office on 3rd July 2015 with the expectation for this the regenerate the series to its former glory.

Unfortunately it seems to have halted the series, it entered at number 2 which isn't good, with £3.8 million and after only 8 weeks, 5 weeks on chart 3 off, disappeared.

The film made £11 million in the UK which doesn't even make it one of the top grossing films, worldwide it made $322.4 million making it the 308th top grossing film.

Jurassic World falls from the top to number 2 this week after 3 weeks at number 1.

Also new this week are: Nativity 3: Dude Where's My Donkey?! at number 3, Amy at number 3, The Longest Ride at number 8, The Snow Queen Magic of The Ice Mirror at number ten and Get Santa at number 15.

There is no move at the top of the UK video chart this week as Disney's Cinderella keeps a tight hold of the number 1 spot for a second week. Highest new film is at number 2, a DTV (direct to video) film about the Kray brothers called Rise of the Krays.

Released to coincide with the cinematic release of Legend starring Tom Hardy as the twin brothers. Rise of the Krays stars Simon Cotton and Kevin Leslie as the twins and documents their early life before their infamy as gangsters.

The film was released in 16th May 2015 but made no impact on the box office.

Also new this week are: Far From The Madding Crowd and number 3, Monsters Dark Continent at 4.

The threat of the terminator posed no challenge for the Minions this week as the little green beings held on to the top spot with relative ease.

A second week at the top and a weekend gross of £6.2 million brings the total gross of the animated film to £20.9 million after 10 days of release.

Highest new entry of the week is Mr Schwarzenegger's return to the franchise which made him a star, Terminator.

Terminator Genisys enters the chart at number 2 with a weekend gross of £3.7 million, a little low maybe for a highly anticipated film such as this.

In comparison Terminator Salvation made £6.9 million on its debut, Terminator 3: Rise of The Machines took £6.08 million on its debut, so Genisys is running at half those two films.

Jurassic World continues to pull in the numbers and this week brings its total to £53 million.

Other new film this week are Magic Mike XXL at 4, documentary Amy at 5, with £523,192 the highest new entry for a documentary in the UK and Guillaume Tell Royal Opera House at 8.
