Highest new film of the week is at number 7 with the film version of The Office, David Brent Life On The Road.
The David Brent film was released at UK cinemas on 19th August 2016 where it entered at number 3, kept from the top by Finding Dory and Suicide Squad.
It quickly fell out of the top 10 after only 2 weeks but spent another 6 weeks in cinemas, after 8 weeks it made £ 3.6 million.
Also new this week is Swallows And Amazons a number 8 film from August 2016.
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.
We are coming to the end of the School holidays in the UK and its a time when a lot of families are back from their time away so its perhaps no suprise that the box kids film of the moment returns to the top.
A fantastic 4th weekend gross of £2.8 million takes the total gross to £32.3 million, this puts the film on a level with the original Finding Nemo.
Falling into second place is 2 week champion Suicide Squad, a £2.5 million weekend brings the total gross to an fantastic £27.6 million.
This puts the DC anti-hero film ahead of the DC superhero film Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice from earlier in the year.
Highest new film of the week is a British institution making its debut, David Brent Life On The Road, and although it hasn't done nearly as well as Absolutely Fabulous The Movie from this year is debuts at 3 with £1.4 million.
The Office was such a big hit from over10 years ago, was of its time, and is still loved its a challenge to get that feeling back, and this only looks at one of the characters so it could sink fast.
The Secret Life of Pets is still the top total grossing movie of the week with £33.7 million and the longest running film with 9 weeks.
Interesting note this week, if the chart were calculated from the full weeks taking it would have been a very different picture, Suicide Squad would have retained the top, The BFG would have been 3rd and David Brent Life on the Road would have been 6th

Also out is The Rover starring Guy Pearce and directed by David Michod, this had it's first showing at Cannes, has had little hype but could well see a top 5 entry.

Cloud Atlas is Andy and Lana Wachowski's return to film making after 5 years out of the game. Their most famous film to date is The Matrix from 1999.

Mama is a scare fest horror movie from director Andres Muschietti and is the story of 2 young girls who are found apparently living alone in the woods and brought back to live with a young couple, only to find their dead mother wants them back.

The actual figure according The British Film Institute is £1.04 billion 5% up on 2010, this amounts to a staggering 171,600,000 tickets sold (more or less), a figure which is a 1.4% increase on the previous year. The large difference in spend to tickets sold seems odd considering ticket prices went down in 2011, but then with the 3D tax you start to realize where the extra comes from.
Films shot in the UK or financed in someway in the UK amounts to just over 36%, that's a staggering 24% up on the previous year, this is an incredible statistic, especially in the wake of prime Minister David Cameron claiming the UK needs to make more blockbusters that make money, go figure!
This year looks to be another big year for movies with some great Hollywood blockbuster due in the coming months which will certainly boost to cinema figures for 2012.
Prime Minister David Cameron is to visit Pinewood Studios on Wednesday (11th Jan) and has said himself that he British film industry should support "commercially successful pictures", but in doing this does it mean film makers loosing their artistic integrity?
In my mind this begs the question, do film makers make films for person reasons, it may be to make art, to make a statement or because the maker has a story they just have to tell, and despite it's commercial success if its going to be seen and enjoyed or acknowledged by the public, despite how small that group might be, it's worth making the film. Or is the making of a film an industry and if the product won't make a profit then why bother to produce it? In reality the films, which make the money, are (generally) big blockbuster.
Last year Britain produced The Kings Speech, The Inbetweeners, Johnny English Reborn and finish off the Harry Potter series (which can arguably be credited to Britain), all successful films which made money at the box office and have continued to make money in the home market (DVD, Blu-ray, downloads). But outside of this there were plenty of films that were lower grossing movies that probably didn't make money.
The "independent" films that Britain produces are often what separates it, and forms the identity of the film industry, India and France also have massive films industries and can be identified by these films which are loved by people in their native countries as well as other nationalities. In the UK we love American (Hollywood) blockbuster for what they are, and it just so happens they make money, maybe it's the marketing push of millions of dollars but they make money, much of which is pumped back into the American economy.
Of course this is the attraction, American mainstream films make money the world over, British films tend to make money only in the UK, the marketing pounds aren't there to promote the film to the same extent abroad. Despite The Kings Speech which won Oscars doing well in the US, The Inbetweeners and Johnny English didn't.
It must be argues that if Britain makes more 'mainstream' films there is a fear of the British film industry just becoming a Little Hollywood, and although it's no bad thing to produce movies that make money (and hence having a larger audience) we shouldn't and can't stop making films which can be truly identifies as British and which probably wont make millions.
Colin Firth and Natalie Portman got their statues, while Christian Bale and Melissa Leo (both for The Fighter) got awarded. Maybe the most unpredictable award for the night was best film and director, most thought that The Social Network and its director David Fincher might clinch it, but The Kings Speech and director Tom Hooper took home the glory.
Toy Story 3 deservedly gained the best animated feature Oscar and in maybe a surprise move Banks diod not get the best documentary Oscar, so no stunt appearance, instead that went to Inside Job, a film from director Charles Ferguson about the financial crisis of 2008.
In all I suppose it was a predictable night, but one where all the Oscars went to deserved winners, something which rarely happens. The awards season is now over, a season which I used to get very excited about, and although I still look at the winners with interest I don't get nearly as excited as I did 10 years ago, maybe Oscar is no longer relevant?
Retaining it number 2 spot is The Kings Speech which is still managing to impress, not only at the box office but at the continuous awards ceremonies at this time of year, a weekend take of £2,739,204 brings its gross of 5 weeks to £30,014,606.
Highest new entry of the week The Fighter, another Oscar contender for many awards the film stars Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale and is directed by David O. Russell. A weekend take of £ 2,118,140 is good considering the competition.
Black Swan drops a single place to 4 with £1,725,630 while new at 5 is the James Cameron presented Sanctum, it's not doing the same numbers as a Cameron directed film and is maybe a little disappointing with £ 859,064.
Again this weeks box office is a little higher than this time last year where Avatar was still the top film and still raking in a weekend take of over £4million. Highest new entry was Disney's The Frog Princess with Astro Boy following and Invictus not far behind. Sherlock Holmes was still hanging onto the top 5.
Leading the field this year is the Transformers sequel, Revenge of the Fallen, which lets face it was truly awful and in the field for worst film along with All About Steve, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Land of the Lost and Old Dogs should win quite comfortably.
As these awards are something which are not taken too seriously, even by the foundation, in the worst actor category we have all 3 Jonas brothers up for a single nomination, in the same category we have Will Ferrell, Steve Martin, Eddie Murphy (who has had his fare share of nominations) and John Travolta.
Worst actress nods go to Beyonce, Sandra Bullock, Myley Cyrus, Megan Fox and Sarah Jessica Parker, and guess which of these was in the Transformers movie that may just pip the rest at the post.
The categories are not in the usual fashion and there is a category for Worst Screen Couple for which the Jonas brothers feature again and Worst Remake, Rip-off or Sequel, which of course the Transformers film appears in.
As we celebrated the end of a decade last year there are also categories for picture, actress and actor that were the worst of the naughties.
