Disney and Jon Favreau live action version of the classic Rudyard Kipling book makes in incredible showing at the box office this week.

Making it debut at the top with a £9.9 million weekend the film has become the 63rd highest opening weekend in the UK ever, in 2016 Batman V Superman and Deadpool opened higher.

With such a strong opening the film is sure to follow in the footsteps of Cinderella and Alice in Wonderland and be a massive live action film for Disney.

Falling from the top in dramatic style this week is The Huntsman: Winters War which drops to, a second weekend of £0.6 million brings the total to £4.4 million.

Highest total grossing movie on the box office this week is former number 1 film Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice which has now grossed £35.3 million after 4 weeks of play.

Historical chart

A year ago
Fast and Furious 7 retained its hold on the top and with a strong top 4 Child 44 was the top new film at 4.

Five years ago
Scream 4 took over at the top on its debut weekend leaving Rio to fall to number 2.

Ten years ago
Ice Age: The Meltdown stayed at the top for another weekend leaving Scary Movie 4 to enter the chart at number 2.

Fifteen years ago
Bridget Jones's Diary made its debut at the top while Rugrats In Paris The Movie fell to number 3.

Twenty years ago
Broken Arrow was new at the top while Toy Story fell into the runner up position after 3 weeks at the top.

Twenty five years ago
Highlander II The Quickening was the top new film of the week with Quigley Down Under falling into number 3.

The Force Awakens this week opened in the last of the worlds major territories and broken records in that country too.

China is the last of the major cinema going nations, and like in almost all other countries it is now the highest grossing opening film.

The last record the film has to get now is that of the highest grossing movie of all time, currently held by Avatar with $2.8 billion dollars, can it get there, its actually looking unlikely.

Despite all the records that The Force Awakens has broken, and the fact that most of the world is still showing the film it still needs to make another billion dollars, this could be out of its reach.

I am certain that it will be the first film since Avatar to go over $2 billion, and I suspect it has a good chance of beating Titanic which is number 2 with $2.1 billion but there will have to be a lot of repeat viewing to get to $2.8 billion, but who knows at this point?

Highest new film of the week is The Forest which has grossed $13.5 million from 5 territories and sits at number 6 this week.

Worth a mention is The Revenant which is out in 11 countries and went in general release this week and sits at number 2 this week with $58.2 million.

This week top 10 looks like this

  1. Star Wars: The Force Awakens - $145,930,000
  2. The Revenant - $58,200,000
  3. Daddys Home - $25,200,000
  4. The Hateful Eight - $18,351,000
  5. The Good Dinosaur - $13,644,000
  6. The Forest - $13,538,000
  7. Joy - $12,000,000
  8. Detective Chinatown - $11,800,000
  9. Quo Vado? - $11,500,000
  10. Alvin And The Chipmunks The Road Chip - $11,300,000
There is little more to talk about this week other than the return of the Jurassic series to the world and how clearly the franchise holds a lot of love as it smashes the US box office to pieces.

The weekend saw it take $204 million at the US box office, the second highest opening weekend of all time over the pond and just a shade below the $207 million of Avengers from 2012.

**UPDATE**
With final figures out Jurassic World has broken the record and now has the highest grossing opening weekend in America with $208 million.

The film looks likely to be the highest grossing film of the year in America as this will have a lot of milage and potential repeat viewing as audience like the thrill of a disaster movie.

Last weeks top film, Spy, still does well in it's second weekend taking $16 million for a $57 million 10 day take.

Due to Jurassic World opening and the expectation it would clean up there were no other new releases this weekend.

After 3 weeks of release The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies is still the top selling video film in the UK.

Highest new film of the week is down at 3 in the shape of Birdman or to give it the full title Birdman Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance).

Birdman was release in UK cinemas on 2nd January of this year and was a big Oscar hopeful although it only debuted at number 7 with £1.5 million which was its highest position.

A 6 week stay on the UK box office saw the film take a total gross of £'5.6 million, in the US it took $42 million.

There are 2 other new film on the video chart this week are Unbroken at 4 and Automata at 8.

The festive period of 2014 has arrived and like each year where we have had a Middle Earth film, The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies is the top film for the week.

A weekend gross of £4.2 million has pushed it's total gross to £28.8 million for it's UK run.

Highest new film of the week the Ridley Scott directed Exodus Gods and Kings, entering the box office chart at number 2 with a £2.6 million take.

Not a bad opening gross but a long way off some of Scotts other films, his highest of which is Hannibal which took £6.4 on it's debut weekend.

Other new films this week are Annie at 4 and Unbroken at 7.

Historical charts

One year ago
Last year The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug was still holding the top slot while The Secret Life of Walter Mitty was the highest new film at 4.

Five years ago
Avatar left the top spot and fell into second place making way for Alvin and The Chipmunks The Squeakquel which debuted at number one.

Ten years ago
The Polar Express goes back to the top knocking Lemony Snickets A Series of Unfortunate Events down to number two, the highest new film was National Treasure at four.

Fifteen years ago
The World Is Not Enough hung to the top of the box office like glue and the highest new film was Dogma which entered at three.

The final US box office chart of the year and The Hobbit: The Battle of the five armies holds strong in the number one spot for a second week.

A $41 million weekend, high for a Christmas weekend, sees the film's total gross climb to $168.5 million in America, thats head of the previous film in the series.

Highest new film of the week is the Angelina Jolie directed Unbroken which enters in second place with a weekend gross of $31.7 million.

Other new films at the US box office are: Into The Woods at 3 and The Gambler at 7.

In the US this weekend there was only really one film in the shape of Marvel/Disney's latest franchise Guardians of the Galaxy.

From the same studio that has broken box office takings over the past years as Avengers Assemble, Iron Man and Captain America to name a few, Guardians of the Galaxy posts the highest August gross ever.

There was speculation over the new franchise and is there was room in an already crowded superhero market, but it looks like there is still room for good entertaining films, and the positive reviews wont have hurt at all.

Audience reaction was positive as well, and pitch at older teenagers during the holiday period this could have lasting appeal and another Billion dollar film from Marvel could be on the cards.

Also out his week, and making a solid debut at 3 is Get on Up, a biographic film of James Brown, the film debut's with a $14 million weekend.

A lot of new films this week, the highlights are Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton and creepy drama Stoker with Nicole Kidman.

Also at the box office this week is Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe in cop drama Broken City, Richard Gere in Arbitrage and romance Safe Haven.

The end has come and Harry Potter has had his last (at least for the foreseeable future) opening weekend at the box office, and it turns out to be one hell of a weekend, although in the UK not the best ever.

In the UK the film opened to a phenomenal £23,753,171 which now sits as the second highest opening weekend ever in the UK, a slither behind The Prisoner of Azkaban for 2004 which opened to £23,882,688, which did so with less screens showing the film and no 3D so all round better.

Despite this the film has had a good world opening, it has broken the US record for opening weekend which was previously held by The Dark Knight, it has also had the greatest world wide opening weekend with very close to half a billion dollars.

Deathly Hallows part 2 could go on to be the highest grosser or the 8 films domestically and across the world, and who know could be the first Potter to cross the world gross landmark of $1 billion.
