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.

Historical charts

A year ago
This time last year expectations were high when the rebooted Ghostbusters hit the top on its debut knocking off The Secret Life of Pets after 3 weeks on top.

Five years ago
Ice Age: Continental Drift stayed on top for a third week while the top new film was Magic Mike at number 3.

Ten years ago
It was a rare summer release for Harry Potter as Harry Potter and The Order of The Phoenix hit the top on its debut knocking Shrek The Third down to 2.

Fifteen years ago
Scooby Doo was the top film of the week making its debut while Minority Report fell to number 2 after a week on top.

Twenty years ago
Batman and Robin stayed on top for a third weekend with the top new film Murder at 1600 landing at 3.

Twenty five years ago
Batman Returns was the top film of the week landing at number 1 on its debut while The Player fell to number 2 after 2 weeks on top.

Spider-Man joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the first time in Spider-Man Homecoming and with the help of Iron Man tops the Uk box office.

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.

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.

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.

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