Summing up the top grossing movies of 2016 brings up some interesting data as the top film of the year is a film from 2015, and a huge film of 2016 at that.

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens despite being released at the very end of 2015 took £57 million in 2016 and thus becomes the highest grossing film of the year.

The long awaited Star Wars saga sequel also took £65 million in 2015 and was the second highest grossing film last year and is also the highest grossing film ever in the UK.

Taking The Force Awakens out of the equation for a moment the highest grossing film of the year, films that were released in 2016, is Bridget Jones's Baby.

The return of Bridget Jones to our cinemas struck a good note with a British audience to the tune of £47.8 million, although its still £10 million below The Force Awakens.

Next is Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which has taken £47.4 million and with the film still in the UK top 10 I would guess this will overtake Bridget Jones in the new year.

Next up is the Disney live action version of The Jungle Book which has a Uk gross of £46 million, we then have Finding Dory with £42 million and Deadpool with £37 million.

Of the top 10 of 2016 5 of the films are Disney movies or franchises - Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has just crept into the top 10 after 2 weeks of release.

Seven of the film are franchise films and 2 of the top 5 and film which are considered British although 4 of the film were made in the UK.

Here is the full UK top 10 films of 2016.

  1. Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens - £57,101,335
  2. Bridget Jones's Baby - £47,826,849
  3. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - £47,469,530
  4. The Jungle Book - £46,191,905
  5. Finding Dory - £42,604,905
  6. Deadpool - £37,616,432
  7. Captain America: Civil War - £36,771,782
  8. Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice - £36,495,828
  9. The Secret Life of Pets - £34,649,738
  10. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - £33,943,482
As the year comes to a close its time to reflect on the films that hit the big time in 2016 - so what were the highest grossing film at the global box office?

The top grossing film across the globe in 2016 is Captain America: Civil War - this surprised me a bit but is testament on how well established the Marvel Cinematic Universe is now.

The third in the Captain America series - although some might say it is more an Avengers movie that Captain America Movie - took $1.5 billion at the global box office.

Compared to 2015 this is far lower than Jurassic World which took $1.6 billion but is on par with the number 2 film Fast and Furious 7 with took $1.5 billion (for the record Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens took more but much of that was in 2016). Finding Dory is the second highest grossing film of 2016 with $1.027 billion while not very far behind it is Zootopia (Zootropolis) which took $1.026 billion.

Rounding out the top 5 is The Jungle Book and The Secret Life of Pets wich both took a shade under a billion each.

The top 2 films were both sequels and 6 of the top 10 films were either sequels or part of an already established franchise, and Deadpool at 7 although not part of a franchise is certainly part of the Marvel Superhero world.

Disney did very well this year with the top 4 film all being from the studio and it wouldn't surprise me if Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ended up in the top five film by the time it ends its run.

Four of the top 10 are superhero movies, four of the top ten have animals as their primary cast, 3 are animations (arguably 4) and 8 have sequels and further adventures in the series already announced. Thanks 2016 at the global box office, here is the full top 10.

  1. Captain America: Civil War - $1,153,304,495
  2. Finding Dory - $1,027,771,569
  3. Zootopia - $1,023,784,195
  4. The Jungle Book - $966,550,600
  5. The Secret Life of Pets - $875,457,937
  6. Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice - $873,260,194
  7. Deadpool - $783,112,979
  8. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - $748,820,251
  9. Suicide Squad - $745,600,054
  10. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - $687,878,705

This weekend Pixar returned to the ocean it first introduced us to in 2003 when Nemo got lost and his father found a new friend to find him.

This time that friend needs to be found and in the process Finding Dory opens to the tune of $136 million, the highest ever for an animated film.

It also managed the highest ever single day openeing with nearly $55 million and you have one hell of a hit film on your hands.

Critics have been favourable although the general thought is the film is not as good as its predecessor Finding Nemo.

Last weeks top film The Conjuring 2 falls quite hard this week to number 3 with a weekend take of $15.5 million and a total gross of $71 million.

Highest total grossing movie on the US box office is Captain America: Civil War with $401 million, and it is also the longest running movie with 7 weeks on the top 10.

Video game adaptation Warcraft once again wins the global box office with out much of an issue, mainly from China when the film has become the biggest opening movie of all time.

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.

Highest new film of the week lands at number 2 in the shape of horror sequel The Conjuring 2.

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

Highest total grossing film across the globe this week is Captain America: Civil war at number 11 which has to date grossed $1.15 billion.

Here is the global top 5

  1. Warcraft - $210,155,975
  2. The Conjuring 2 - $90,350,000
  3. Now You See Me 2 - $43,125,000
  4. X-Men: Apocalypse - $35,000,000
  5. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows - $28,100,000
This week at the global box office X-Men Apocalypse well and truely out grossed all other films to become the top film across the world.

A weekly take of $106 million ensured that it moved ahead of the crowd and its massive opening in China was largely the reason.

X-Men Apocalypse total weekly gross comes from 69 countries in total.

Openeing in second and thus the highest new entry of the week is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows, it took $69 million for the week.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows was released in 41 countries this week.

Higest total grossing film on release worldwide at the moment is Captain America: Civil War which has a world gross now of $1.1 billion.

Captain America: Civil War in still on general release in 50 countries.

Here is the top 5 film across the globe for 5th June 2016:

  1. X-Men: Apocalypse - $106,725,000
  2. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows - $69,250,000
  3. Alice Through The Looking Glass - $41,591,000
  4. Warcraft - $29,900,000
  5. The Angry Birds Movie - $26,475,000
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.

On the Uk box office this week we have the latest X-Men film taking over at the top on its debut week of release ending Captain America's 3 week run.

£7.3 million was enough to see X-Men Apocalypse reach the top of the chart, this is fairly average for an X-Men movie although it is lower than the previous entry X-Men Days of Future Past.

Interesingly the Wolverine movies have fared the same for debut grosses meaning that the average gross of a X-Men universe movie is in the £6 million region.

Last weeks top film Captain America: Civil War falls from the top quite hard to number 4 with a weekend take of £1.3 million bringing its total to £34 million.

Highest total Grossing movie on the box office this week is The Jungle Book at number 3 with £41 million.

Historical charts

A year ago
Pitch Perfect 2 was still at the top of the list while the highest new film was at number 3, Tomorrowland.

Five years ago
Pirates of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the fourth in the series, made its debut at the top while the previous weeks top film, Thor, fell to number 3.

Ten years ago
Tom Hanks starred in the adaptation of The Da Vinci Code which made its debut at number 1 knocking Mission:Impossible III to number 2.

Fifteen years ago
The Mummy Returns was the new film at the top knocking Bridget Jones's Diary down to the number 2 spot.

Twenty years ago
Toy Story made its way back to the top of the charts while Money Train was the highest new film of the week.

Twenty five years ago
Misery stayed at the top of the box office for a second week while L.A. Story starring Steve Martin was the highest new film.

This week across the world the latest X-Men film X-Men Apocalypse made its debut and took over at the top but it wasn't all bad news for Captain America: Civil War.

X-Men took $106.6 million dollars with its launch in 76 countries, but not America, and took over as the top film.

In the world of cinema it is becoming quite common for one Marvel franchise to take over from another Marvel franchise, especially when from competing studios.

With 41% of the non American market and topping the X-Men debuts in many of them this latest version of the X-Men films could be one of the biggest to date.

Captain America: Civil War has now become the first movie of 2016 to break the $1 billion mark (although The Force Awakens did it in 2016) and the film now stands at $1.05 billion and is number 3 this week.

It is also of course the highest total grossing movie on the world box office and is still showing in 55 countries, although with this and Batman V Superman slowing later in their run are we starting to see a letup in the superhero dominance of the box office? Here is the world box office top 5

  1. X-Men: Apocalypse - $101.6 million
  2. The Angry Birds Movie - $94 million
  3. Captain America: Civil War - $30.7 million
  4. The Divergent Series: Allegiant - $9.9 million
  5. The Jungle Book - $7.4 million
This week the animated game turned film made its debut on the North American box office charts at the top.

Disney had to finally relinquish its 4 week/2 film hold of the box office in favour of Sony's catapulting birds in search of their eggs which debuted to the tune of $39 million.

Not a bad debut and looking forward the film could do well with the summer vacation in the UK kicking in within the coming weeks.

Captain America: Civil War falls from the top after just 2 weeks but it has taken an excellent 347.3 million after a $33 million 3rd weekend gross.

Captain America is now actually the top total grossing film on the box office this weekend.

Also making debuts are: Bad Neighbours 2 (or Neighbors 2 to give it an American title) at number 3 and The Nice Guys at number 4.

It was a close run thing this week between Captain America: Civil War and The Angry Birds Movie making its debut but in the end the Marvel film won.

Civil War now makes it three weeks at the top and this week adds £2.7 million to its gross which has now soared to £32.1 million.

The film is now the 5th highest grossing of the year and before it finishes its run it should beat Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice and Deadpool, currently at 4 and 3 respectively.

The Angry Birds Movie is the highest new film at number 2 which on its debut takes £2.1 million.

Aiming squarely at kids but also appealing to adults that hooked on the game the film loosely follows the plot of the games.

The film should do well over the coming half term but will have limited appeal after that.

Longest stay by a film on the box office this week is Zootopia with 8 weeks and the highest grossing movie is The Jungle Book at £39.3 million after 5 weeks.

Historical charts

A year ago
This time last year Pitch Perfect made its debut at the top pushing Avengers Age of Ultron donw to number 3.

Five years ago
Thor remained at the top of the chart leaving Attack The Block as the highest new film to enter at number 3.

Ten years ago
Mission:Impossible III stayed at the top for a second week while Prime made a new enter at number 2.

Fifteen years ago
Bridget Jones's Diary spent yet another week at the top of the chart while The Dish was the highest new film at number five.

Twenty years ago
Steven Segal starred in Executive Decision which entered the box office at the top knocking Toy Story to number 3

Twenty five years ago
Oscar winning Misery was the top new film entering at the top, it knocked Predator 2 down to number 2.

At the world box office this week Captain America: Civil War kept is reign on things and stayed at the top with $158.8 million from 55 countries.

The latest Marvel film has now been on release for just shy of 3 weeks and is heading for the $1 billion mark which is should do by next weekend.

This far outstrips any of the previous Captain America films and is becoming one of the most successful Marvel Cinematic Universe films.

Highest new film of the week is The Angry Birds Movie which was released in 74 countries and took and fairly respectable $43 million.

This will hit the right notes with children and maybe adults which got adicted to the game a few years ago so it could have great legs going forward.

In the US this week Captain America: Civil War stayed put at the top for a second weekend although with quite a large drop, expected though with such a massive opening.

The Marvel Avengers film took $76.6 million from the weekend which took its total US gross to $295 million after 2 weekends of play.

With The Jungle Book holding fast again at number 2 the highest new film dropped into 3rd place, Money Monster from director Jody Foster.

The Film starring Julia Roberts and George Clooney took $15 million over the weekend, the film is a hard sell despite the stars and could sink fast.

Top total grossing film in the US this week, and possibly on its last week is Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice which has grossed $328.2 million.

Last week Captain America kick started the summer box office in the UK, and this weekend the sun actually showed its face making people forget about the cinema for the weekend.

With the sun shining the box office saw a massive drop in taking and Captain America: Civil War war a 60%+ drop in taking to £4.06 million.

This brings the films total takings to £27.3 million on its second weekend of release, although this is still better than the previous 2 film at the same point in their release.

Highest new film of the week is Bad Neighbours 2 at number 3 which debuts with £1.69 million.

With the sun out this is way lower than the original 2014 film which scored an £8 million plus opening.

Also new this week are Florence Foster Jenkins at number 4, Robinson Crusoe at number 5 and 24 at number 10.

Historical charts

A year ago
Avengers Age of Ultron stayed at the top of the box office leaving [spooks] The Greater Good to land at number 2.

Five years ago
A fairly static chart saw Thor stay at the top with Water For Elephants the top new film at number 4.

Ten years ago
Mission:Impossible III kicked off the summer season with a number 1 debut while Ice Age: The Meltdown fell to number 3.

Fifteen years ago
Bridget Jones's Diary stayed put at the top with Captain Corelli's Mandolin landing new at number 2.

Twenty years ago
Toy Story was still reigning at the top of the UK box office, highest new film was right down at number 5 in the shape of Things to Do In Denver When Your Dead.

Twenty five years ago
Predator 2 made its debut at the top of the chart with The Doors falling down to number 2.

As expected with the release of the latest cinematic Marvel instalment Disney scores another massive debut.

Captain America: Civil War scores the 4th highest grossing debut ever in the US, the others are Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Jurassic World, Avengers Age of Ultron.

Disney just keep hitting the right note with the Marvel films, and with Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice not going down as well they will continue for the foreseeable future.

This is of course the kick off for the summer season and this is a great start, last year was a record year and this year could be a bog one too.

With such a massive new release there were no other new film, The Jungle Book fell to number 2 making a Disney 1/2 double header.
