News
This weekend saw the release of two of this summers most anticipated films, and sequels, in Finding Dory and Jason Bourne, and the forgetful little fish won the weekend.

Finding Dory debut weekend in the UK stands at &pond;8.1 million, and excellent opening by all means and not only one of Pixars highest in the UK but also one of the top animation openings.

Compared to 2003s Finding Nemo, and despite the more negative reviews, the film opens higher, but compared to ticket sales Dory (1.1 million) is half a million below Nemo (1.6 million).

Jason Bourne comes in a comfortable second place this week with £7.6 million which is the highest of the series to date.

The BFG falls from the top where it debuted last week to number 3 this week, although if you take in the whole week it is the top grossing movie (Monday - Sunday) with £9.1 million, total gross for the movie is £14 million.

Highest gross and longest run on the top 10 is The Secret Life of Pets which has now grossed £30 million over 6 weeks.

This week Disney had a double dip on the UK box office with Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Muppets Most Wanted hitting at one and two.

Captain America, the latest from the Marvel Avengers (Avengers Assemble as it's called in the UK) universe of films, was by far and away the better grossing film taking £6 million. The film is a sequel to 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger which took £3 million on it's July debut.

Muppets Most Wanted is the follow up to 2012 The Muppets. That film took £2.6 million on it's debut, this one took a very similar £2.2 million.

Muppets Most Wanted
The Legend of Hercules
The Past
