Still selling enough tickets to keep it on top for a third week is Dunkirk which holds off a strong debut from The Emoji Movie.

War film Dunkirk from director Christopher Nolan keeps pulling in the punters and stays on top for an incredible third weekend with a gross of £4.6 million.

This brings the films total to £28 million with no sign of slowing down yet, and with a weak load of new releases next week we could see a fourth weekend on top.

Coming in at number 2 this week is The Emoji Movie which takes a very good £2.7 million on its debut.

With the summer holidays in full swing this is a timely release and it could mean the film stays in the upper reaches of the chart for a while to come.

Big budget movie Valerian and The City of A Thousand Planets from Luc Besson should have been a massive hit but we have a bit of a flop on our hands as the film debuts at number 3 with £1.8 million.

With 6 weeks on the chart Baby Driver is this week longest running film and with nearly £40 million in total grosses Despicable Me 3 is the highest total grossing film.

Twenty five years ago
Far and Away with Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman was the top film of the week, it knocked Universal Soldier down to 2 after a week on top.

The Dark Tower this week makes its debut at the top of the US box office stopping Dunkirk from making it a trio of weeks at number 1.

Its a far softer debut that was expected as The Dark Tower debuts with just shy of $20 million, although it was good enough to see it at number 1.

More was expected considering the high profile stars in Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey and the connection to Stephen Kings world though his novels.

Dunkirk gave up the top spot but with a 3rd weekend gross of $17 million the film has been another massive success for director Christopher Nolan.

The films total gross in the US now sits at $133 million with $200 million fast approaching.

Also new this week is Kidnapped starring Halle Berry which debuts at 5 with $10 million.

Longest running film this week is once again Despicable Me 3 although the top total grossing movie this week is Spider-Man Homecoming with $294 million.

China ruled the global box office this week as the mega hit Wolf Warrior II had one of the biggest openings in China this year, second only to Fat and Furious 8.

With $125.9 million from only 5 countries, Wolf Warrior II directed by and starring Wu Jing, has a country average of an incredible $25.1 million.

The films total global gross so far is $142 million after a soft launch last week.

Dunkirk falls to second place this week with $73.7 million from 64 countries for a country average of $1.1 million.

This brings the films global total to a respectable $234.1, it should break the $300 million by next weekend.

Highest new film of the week is The Emoji Movie which lands at number 6 with $25.6 million from just the one country, America, which on a country average would put it ahead of the number 1 film by half a million dollars.

Despicable me 3 is the highest total grossing global hit on the top 10 with $819.2 million so far and is at number 3 this week.

The last in the trilogy of Planet of The Apes prequel movies opens at the top of the Uk box office this week knocking Spider-Man Homecoming off after just a single week.

War For The Planet of The Apes which stars Woody Harrelson and Any Serkis hits the top with a weekend gross of £7.1 million, a very good gross for a critically praised film.

The trilogy of films has been constant on its debut and this does better than Rise but not quite at good as Dawn's £8 million debut.

With this in mind I'd expect this to end its run in the £30 million region.

Spider-Man Homecoming falls to number 3 this week leapfrogging over Despicable Me 3 by the tightest of margins with a £3.7 million weekend.

This brings the films total gross to £16 million after 10 days of release and is looking set to match the first Spider-Man film from 2002.

Despicable Me at number 2 took £3.8 million and has now grossed £26 million from 3 weekends of release.

For the Monday - Sunday week the top film would have been Spider-Man with a £7.4 million weekly gross with Apes second and Despicable Me 3 third.

For the third weekend running The Boss Baby is the longest running film with 15 weeks and the highest grossing with £28 million.

The new re-boot (the third for the franchise) stars Tom Holland and reaches the top with a £9.3 million opening weekend.

In terms of previous Spider-Man films this is fairly standard with only Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man doing far better.

Despicable Me 3 falls to second place but still manages a £5 million weekend which brings the films total gross to nearly £20 million.

With the school summer holidays fast approaching expect this film to hang around for a while.

Yet gain The Boss Baby is the longest running film of the week with 14 weeks on total on the chart and it is also the highest total grossing film with £28 million.

Across the globe this week Spider-Man Homecoming makes its debut at the top with a global gross of $257 million from 57 countries.

The first Spider-Man film to be released into the MCU the film also stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man which seems to have broadened the appeal of the film.

The film did well in the US taking $117 million but took $140 million on the international markets with South Korea leading the way.

Despicable Me 3 fell from the top to number 2 this week with $172.9 million from 61 countries, this brings the film total global gross to $447.5 million.

Wonder Woman is at number 4 this week and is the highest total grossing film globally, it has now grossed $745 million and is still showing in 65 countries.

Worth a mention if The House That Never Dies II, only released in 1 country it sits at number 6 this week with $14 million.

Cars 3 this week falls to number 8, with a total gross of $193 million globally it could well end up as the lowest grossing Pixar movie to date.

The third re-boot of the popular Spider-Man swings onto the top of the US box office this week with one major difference from the previous series of the character.

Spider-Man Homecoming unlike the previous films is a Marvel film and part of the Disney MCU which allow it to feature Iron Man and Captain America, and it would seem audience are enjoy it.

Taking $117 million at the US box office this weekend it is the first time since the Sam Raimi Spider-Man that the series will make big money.

After making its debut at number 1 last week Despicable Me 3 falls to number 2 with a $34 million weekend, more than 50% drop from last week.

This brings the films total US gross to about $150 from its first 10 days of release, it will be the lowest grossing of the series.

Wonder Woman is the longest running film on the US box office this week with 6 weeks, it is also the highest total grossing with $368 million.

This week the animated series of Despicable Me in its third incarnation, imaginatively titled Despicable me 3, removed Transformers from the top after just a week.

Taking a decent £11 million from the weekend the third film, or fourth if you count Minions, in the series comes in under the second film but way above the first.

Worth a note last years Minions debuted with almost the exact same gross as this so the series is on a stable keel at the moment.

Transformers: The Last Knight falls down to number 3 this week with a weekend gross of £1.06 million bringing the films total gross to £8 million.

Transformers leap frogs over Baby Driver which makes its debut at number 2 this week, the much hyped film makes £3.6 million on its debut.

Directed by Edgar Write Baby Driver does better than nearly all other Write directed movies other than Hot Fuzz which was his follow up movie to the excellent Shaun of The Dead and was much hyped as well.

Also new this week is All Eyez On Me which us new at 4 with just under a million pound and quite disappointingly so The House which is new at 6 with Half a million pound.

The Boss Baby is this week the longest running film on the box office with 13 weeks and the highest total grossing with £28.5 million.

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.

This weekend the powerhouse animated series Despicable Me takes over on its debut weekend in the form of its third, or is that fourth, movie.

Despicable Me 3 is the third in the series although the much loved Minion characters did have their own solo outing last year.

This latest chapter opens to a $75 million US opening and like many of the series films this year so far it is suffering and is lower than previous films.

Maybe even more worrying it that this opens lower than last years spin off film which mean it may be a while before we see more films in the Despicable Me series.

Coming in at number 2 is the much hyped and critical darling Baby Driver, a $21 million opening for the British director Edgar Wright film is not bad at all and promising things could be ahead.

Transformers: The Last Knight falls from the top spot and falls 62% in its weekend takings which is worrying for the rotob bashing franchise, this weekend the film took $17 million for a total of $102.1 million.

This weeks longest running film on the US chart is Pirates of The Caribbean: Salazars Revenge at 6 weeks and the highest total grossing film is Wonder Woman with $346 million.

A new trailer for Despicable Me 3, the twin brother scenario, its as old as the hills.

Al least the Minions are in it, the thing worth seeing in this getting tired series.

Catch the trailer below.

Despicable Me 3 gets a new trailer and poster, looks like were in for some sibling rivalry in the new toon movie.

The third/fourth in the series get released on 30th June 2017.

Making its debut on the UK box office this week is Sing which lands at the top knocking off La La Land, and in a surprise move keeps of T2 Trainspotting.

Sing is an animated feature from the same stable as Despicable Me and features the voice talent from the likes of Matthew McConaughey and Reece Witherspoon.

The film makes its debut with a rather spectacular £10.4 million debut weekend which makes it the 66 top opening of all time.

Sing replaces La La Land which falls to number 3 this week with a £3.1 million 3rd weekend and a £20.9 million total UK gross.

Missing out on the top spot is the highly anticipated T2 Trainspotting which lands at number 2, the film is an 18 rating so the audience compared to Sing is limited, but £5.1 million is good and any other week would have easily seen the film enter at the top.

Also new this week is Hacksaw Ridge from director Mel Gibson at number 5 with £1.4 million and Rahm at number 7 with £521,000.

Highest total grossing film on the UK box office this week is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story which after 7 weeks has grossed £65.2 million while the longest running film is Trolls with 13 weeks.

First trailer for Despicable Me 3 - same old same old?

The UK box office this weeks has a new number one film in the shape of The Secret Life of Pets. the latests film from the makers of Despicable Me and Minions.

An excellent weekend gross of £9.5 million sees the film enter ahead of the weeks other big film Independence Day Resurgence.

Despite having the connection to the Despicable Me franchise The Secret Life of Pets for a new franchise makes an very good debut, in comparison it is far higher that the first Despicable Me but lower than the franchises other films.

With the summer holidays in the coming weeks this could have staying power, and there is little competition until mid July.

Also new this week is Independence Day Resurgence which makes its debut at number 2 with just over £5 million, its been 20 years but the original debuted to £16 million.

Last weeks top film, The Conjuring 2 The Enfield Case, falls to number 3 with a total gross of £7.7 million after a £1.5 million second weekend.

Its been an interesting week in the UK with the release of the latest James Bond movie Spectre, most unusual of all is that the film got its release after its UK premiere on Monday night rather than the usual Friday.

This opening meant that its weekend figures, although fantastic, were not a true reflection of the usual take on a debut weekend.

To cut a long story short Spectre has done amazingly well, it has the largest UK opening of any film, beating Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban 10 year record by nearly double, it also has the biggest single day gross for any film in the UK, Tuesday and in fact Wednesday.

The films weekly take, from its opening on Monday through to Sunday was £41.3 million, not only the highest ever but also higher than the previous Bond outing Skyfall, which is the highest grossing film ever in the UK.

Its Friday to Sunday total is just shy of £20 million which puts it just behind Skyfall, but that film opened on a Friday, its hard not to believe that Spectre wouldn't have beaten all these figure had it opened on the traditional Friday.

Spectre thus makes its debut at the top of the UK box office with an incredible weekly gross and with no film daring to compete with it, it is also the only new entry on the box office this week, and with very few new film in the coming weeks it will stay a while.

All thats left now is for it to become the top grossing film ever in the UK, it needs over £102 million to achieve this, but with the debut it is entirely possible.

With nothing else opening big in the US market the Minions simply stole the show with it's $115 million opening.

A fantastic opening and the appeal of the characters which started with the Despicable Me films sets in in good stead to become one of the highest grossing animations and a $1 billion+ gross.

Falling into second place is Jurassic World after its 4 week run at the top of the box office, although it cant complain, it is the highest grossing film of the year in the US having grossed $590 million so far.

Other new film in America this week are: The Gallows at number 5 and Self/Less at number 8.

This week Jurassic World lost its 2 week hold at the top of the UK box office and made way for those little yellow people as Minions makes its debut.

Taking over the number 1 spot with a very good weekend gross of £11.5 million and it is clearly looking to repeat the success of Despicable me 2 for which the Minions became famous.

Despicable Me 2 was released at about the same time in 2013 and took £14 million on it's opening weekend, it did become the top grossing film of that year.

Jurassic World fell a single place on it's third weekend of release but the film is still going great guns and is now the top grossing film of the year with £48.9 million.

What are the films were looking forward to the most in 2015? Here is our list of the 15 films were most excited about this year.

Do you agree? Have we missed something off? Let us know what you think of this list.

So in order of release date here it is.

Big Hero 6 - Disney always have a place in cinema and here is their latest effort, released last year in America it got great reviews.

Fifty Shades of Grey - Despite the trashy nature of the novel the trailer for this have made it look, if nothing else, intriguing.

Chappie - Neill Blomkamp delivered with District 9 and brought the interesting Elysium to the screen, the trailer looks good.

The Divergent Series Insurgent - Divergent was surprisingly good and has whetted the appetite for this sequel.

Avengers: Age of Ultron - Avengers was simply brilliant and this should deliver action and drama in ample doses, Joss Whedon can do no wrong!

Pitch Perfect 2 - The real surprise feel good movie of all time, Pitch Perfect get it's deserved sequel.

Pixels - it may have Adam Sandler in it but the concept just makes us want to see this big time.

Tomorrowland - Fascinating concept and with George Clooney, it will be either great or just terrible!

Jurassic World - 14 years later the world of dinosaurs has evolved to a fully working theme park as visualised in the original, of course things go wrong!

Terminator: Genisys - Love or hate the idea behind this it will either revive or kill the series, and how else could they have brought an ageing Arnie back?

Minions - The best of the Despicable Me series gets their own film, the trailer have the laughing out loud.

Inside Out - Pixar are back with a take on the Hermans Head idea, even Pixars worst and really great so high expectations for this.

Suffragette - Maybe its because we know someone in this film, or maybe it's because of the all star line up but were really looking forward to this.

Spectre - It's Bond, it's the follow up the the Uk's highest grossing film ever, it will be great, nothing more to say.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens - The year ends with the most anticipated film of them all and the most anticipated film since … Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, lets hope this one live up to expectations.

This week we finally see the full release of Transformers: Age of Extinction and How to Train Your Dragon 2, and predictable they dominate the upper end of the box office chart.

Taking the top spot is the 4th in the Transformers series of movies from director Michael. The film had previews last weekend and takes the number 1 position with ease this week grossing £11.7 million in the process, it is the biggest grossing opening weekend of the year so far.

It's interesting to note this opening gross does include the £8 million from last weeks preview screenings, a £3 - 4 million is a closer opening weekend figure.

Opening in second place after going on general release is How to Train Your Dragon 2 which also includes money from it's previews over the last 3 or 4 weeks.

Falling to third this week is last weeks top film Mrs. Brown's Boy's D'Movie which after 3 weeks has grossed £11.8 million.

There were a number of other new film this which included
Begin Again at 5
Boyhood at 7
Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania at 12

Last year at the box office Monsters University opened at the top of the chart knocking Despicable Me 2 into second place after 2 weeks at the top.

Five years ago Sasha Baron Cohen opened at the top with Bruno which knocked Ice Age: Dawn of The Dinosaurs to second place.

Ten years ago Shrek 2 held on tight at the top for another week keeping Around the World in 80 Days in second place for it's debut.

Fifteen years ago there was little change at the top with The Mummy retaining it's lead for a second week, highest new film was 10 Things I Hate About You at 5.

Mrs. Brown's Boys D'Movie holds on for a second week on top of the UK box office, this week with little competition from the new realises.

Brendan O'Carroll transvestite creation takes a second week gross of £2.2 million which gives it a 10 day gross (2 weekends) of £9.3 million, not bad really.

With little movement on the box office worth mentioning is How To Train Your Dragon 2, still on previews it took £475,270 over the weekend, it has now taken £1.5 million before it's official release on Friday.

Another film doing this is Transformers: Age of Extinction which had previews from Saturday evening and took £s;4.7 million and would have been the top film, this will be added to the opening gross next week so the film WILL be number 1.

Highest new film of the week is Tammy which we all had high hopes for but in the end struggled to get a top 5 entry with £471,429 over the weekend.

The only other new film this week is The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window and Disappeared at 11.

Looking back

A Year ago Despicable Me was still a the top of the UK box office keeping Now You See Me from the top meaning it debuted at 2.

Five years ago Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs was the new top film which it did on it's debut week of release.

Ten years ago number one and highest new film was Shrek 2 which knocked Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban from the top.

Fifteen years ago The Mummy was still the top film in the UK while Sean Connery was the highest new entry at 2 with Entrapment.

Twenty yeas ago the original The Flintstones movie was the top film in the country for the month of July knocking Four Weddings and a Funeral from the top.

Twenty five years ago Batman was still the top film for the month of July but Indianan Jones and the Last Crusade and Licence to Kill were doing well.

As expected the movie version of Mrs. Browns Boys took the top spot at the UK box office, and with quite a strong margin over the rest.

On it's debut weekend Mrs. Brown's Boys D'Movie took an incredible £4.3 million, far higher than expected and proving that the Irish sit-com has quite a following.

I suspect that this is a fairly front loaded event and we could see it fall quite sharply, I dont think it has the lasting appeal of movie like The Inbetweeners Movie.

Falling to the runner up spot this week is The Fault in our stars which made £1.7 million from the weekend bringing it's 10 day gross to £6.7 million.

Other new film to chart this week are:
Chef at 5
How to Train Your Drans 2 (still only on previews) at 6
Walking on Sunshine at 7
Cold in July at 11
Ek Villain at 12
Punjab 1984 at 13

This time last year Despicable Me 2 hit the top of the box office on it's debut week of release, it would go on to be the top film in the UK of 2013, it knocked Man of Steel into 2nd place.

Five years ago Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was still the top film in the UK and Year One with Jack Black was the highest new film at 3.

Ten years ago it was still Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban at the top while the top new film of the week was Tom Hanks on Lady Killers at 4.

Fifteen years ago Brendan Fraser made a big screen comeback in The Mummy which debuted at the top of the box office knocking The Matrix into the runner up spot after only a week.

Frozen has been an unprecedented success for Disney, only the second cartoon to ever go over $1 billion at the world box office joining Disney/Pixars Toy Story 3 earlier this yeah.

Now Frozen has beaten the third Toy Story film to become the highest grossing animation ever with a world gross currently stinging at about $1.7 billion (and rising) compared to Toy Story 3's $1.6 billion.

Animation has accounted for some of the highest grossers of recent times, domestically and across the globe, last years in the UK Despicable Me 2 (from Dreamworks) was the highest grossing film of the year and fell just short of $1 billion worldwide.

Disney themselves have always down done well with The Lion King being the highest grossing animation from 1994 until Toy Story3's release in 2010, and The Lion King benefited greatly from it's 3D re-release a couple of years ago.

And to add to this, if you adjust ticket prices for inflation, according to many sources Snow While and the Seven Dwarfs is the most watched film at cinemas of all time, and guess what, thats Disney as well.

Les Misérables has held on for most of the year with it's UK gross of £40.5 million to be the top film of 2013 but animated film Despicable Me 2 has just taken over.

Were well into the school summer holidays and as of this week the Steve Carroll film is number 11 on the weekly chart with £40.8 million total.

With a few weeks of the holiday still left I'd not be surprised to see this rise even further.

Stick with 25thframe.co.uk to find out.

The heat wave the UK is experiencing largely kept audiences away from cinemas over the weekend and for a week with 2 big releases nothing did that well at the box office.

Monsters University was the champion debuting in the top spot but it's £3.46 million gross is way lower than expected.

Despicable Me 2 drops to second place with £2.22 million and second highest new entry Pacific Rim has come up very close behind with £2.19 million. Inline with my predictions Monsters University debut at the top, although I predicted the highest debut weekend of the year and it fell short by £8 million and Pacific Rim did debut in third.

Last year Ice Ace Continental Drift finally for a national release after a couple of weeks on limited and went back to the top of the box office with £10 million knocking The Amazing Spider-Man from the top after a single week.

Highest new film (of sorts) was Magic Mike at 3.

Five years ago Mamma Mia stormed the box office on it's debut weekend taking the top spot from Hancock which fell to runner up spot. Mamma Mia would go on to be the highest grossing film in the UK for a short time.

Ten years ago Charlie's Angels Full Throttle was still at the top with Daddy Daycare being the highest new film at 3.

Fifteen years ago Six Days Seven Nights was the top film with Mad City the highest debut at 6.

A duo of big releases will this weekend try and knock Despicable Me 2 from the top spot in the UK with both in with a chance.

Monsters University, the new film from Pixar and the sequel to 2002's Monsters Inc. is the film most likely to dislodge the Despicable Me sequel from the top.

There is such good buzz about for this film that I fully expect it to have the highest opening weekend of the year to date and could even have a debut weekend in the £20 million mark.

The original film in comparison had a £9.2 million opening and went on to gross £38 million in the UK, that was over 10 years ago.

Pacific Rim is the new film from Guillermo del Toro and despite never having had a major hit at the box office has a growing and loyal fan base, and this being a high budget Hollywood sci-fi film he will see bigger numbers that usual.

A top 5 placing is almost guaranteed, but beating Despicable Me 2 is a long shot and I suspect third place is where is will land, but runner up to Monsters University wouldn't surprise me.

Despicable Me 2 easily keeps away all newcomers to stay at the top of the UK box office by a strong margin during it's second week of release.

The animated sequel took close to £4 million pound over the weekend, and despite a drop of £10 million from it's debut it stayed comfortably.

The strongest challenge of the week was from Now You See Me, debuting at 2 with a take of just under £3 million for the 3 day weekend.

According to my prediction Now You See Me did much better than I expected, I predicted a top 5 entry and didn't expect it to debut at number 2

The other new film I predicted last weekend to enter the box office chart was The Internship, which debuted at 3. I expected this to be the big challenge for Despicable Me 2.

This time last year The Amazing Spider-man took the box office by story, the reboot film flew into the top spot with a debut of £11 million and left the rest of the box office dead.

Five years ago Will Smith starred in the superhero movie Hancock and debuted at the top with just under £10 million knocking Prince Caspian from the top.

Ten years ago Charlies Angels: Full Throttle debuted at the top knocking Jim Carey in Bruce Almighty from the top.

Fifteen years ago there was a fairly static box office with Six Days Seven Nights retaining to box office crown.

Twenty years ago Jurassic Park was the big film of the summer and although Arnie was challenging with Last Action Hero it was never a threat to the dinosaur film.

A couple of big new releases this week hit UK cinemas, both actually opened before Friday but will impact the weekend box office chart.

Now You See Me has a host of big names, Morgan Freeman, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, Jesse Eisenberg and not forgetting our own Michael Caine. The story is a bank heist, of sorts, by a group of magicians.

Not much buzz or excitement around this film, it opens on a Wednesday but with little excitement it will probably have a top 5 entry.

The Internship is a Google based film about a couple of “old people” who win an internship at the search giants. Everyone who works there is very young and the 2 older guys do their best to win favour and do a good job.

Starring 2 massive comedy names in Vince Vaughn and Own Wilson, and a massive advertising campaign this could see a good opening weekend, not strong enough to displace Despicable Me 2 and I think it may struggle with Man of Steel but 3rd place entry.

Come back next week to see if I came close to predicting the entries of these 2 films.

Despicable Me 2 tops the UK box office on it's opening weekend and has the best weekend of the year so far, and grossing more than the rest of the top 10 combined.

Displacing Man of Steel from the top after 2 weeks, Despicable Me 2 came close to grossing £15 million on it's opening weekend beating the year best of Iron Man 3 by more than a million pound.

Also new this week in the top 10 are This is the End at 4 and Hummingbird at 5.

Inline with my predictions for the weekend Despicable Me 2 did indeed top the charts and This is the End had a top 5 entry. Hummingbird entered in the top 5 and although I predicted that I thought a top 10 was more likely.

Last year new at the top of the box office, and knocking Prometheus from the top was Ice Age 2, on limited release it still managed to top the chart with £800,000.

Five years ago it was all change, The Hulk sunk to third place as The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian topped the chart and Wanted landed at two.

Ten years ago there was also a change as Jim Carey starred in Bruce Almighty knocking 2 Fast 2 Furious into the runner up spot.

Fifteen years ago there was no change at the top as City of Angels hung on, the highest new film at 3 was Mimic.

Opening in UK cinemas this week we have Seth Rogan and gang in This is the End, Animated sequel Despicable Me 2 and Jason Statham in Hummingbird.

It's the end of the world as we know it and there is a gang of comedians to take us there. Seth Rogan co-directs with Evan Goldberg in This is the End. Emma Watson co-stars along with James Franco and Paul Rudd.

Not a lot of buzz about this film but the star potential, especially Watson will take this film into the top 5 especially as it's strongest competing at the moment is The Hangover Part III and that on it's way out.

Despicable Me 2 opens to a lot of media attention which has really focused on the comedy, and on the back of 2010's Despicable Me which grossed £20 million and spent 10 week on the chart.

With a built in audience and an appeal to kids this could well dislodge Superman from the top, if it doesn't it will certainly land at number 2.

Hummingbird sees hard man Jason Statham as an alcoholic ex-soldier suffering from the effects of way. Directed by first time director Steve Knight, writer of Dirty Pretty Things this will struggle to get a large audience but Statham does have a cult following, although as an out and out action hero.

Expect a 10 ten entry and possibly a top 5, but with a strong marketplace with Superman still doing numbers and the new films it may struggle.
