News
Marvel are a power house not to be messed with, although this weekend Warner Bros. though it would have a go and failed miserably and King Arthur Legend of The Sword couldn’t tough Guardians of The Galaxy at the global box office.

With $115.2 million from 57 countries this week Guardians easily retains its position as top film, this gross means that the film has gone past the half billion mark and has now taken $630.5 million after 3 weeks.

King Arthur did manage second place, although only just, with $43.8 million from 52 countries, but considering the amount of hype the film has had Warner would have been hoping for far more.

Released in 34 countries Alien Covenant marks its debut at number 3, the hotly anticipated film from Ridley Scott didn't get a US release but did make a show in much of Europe.

Nearly beating King Arthur the film takes $42 million for the week despite getting for less than favourable reviews from critics, its US release is this coming weekend which will be a big test.

There is a bit of a battle going on between Fast and Furious 8 and Beauty and The Beast for top film of the spring season and at the moment Beast is winning with $1.2 Billion total gross.

Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 opened up is a number of major territories this week and duly remains at the top of the global box office.

The James Gunn directed film starring Chris Pratt got its US debut this week and with release in 56 countries takes $268.8 million on its second week.

This pushed the films total global gross to $427.6 million, well on its way to a billion, this first Guardians film made $774 million and this could make the extra quarter of a billion to be yet another Marvel film to make the mark.

Showing great promise is Baahubali 2 The Conclusion which this week is at number 2 with $47 million from 11 countries, this pushes the film total gross to $147 million.

Two film on the top 5 this have grossed over a billion, Fast and Furious 8 at number 3 has taken $1.158 billion and Beauty and The Beast has now taken $1,185 billion and is at 5 this week.

There are no new entries on the global box office this week, no surprise with the wider release of Guardians this week.

When there is a new Marvel film in town the all others distributers give the film a wide berth, and with the Chris Pratt and Zoe Seldana headed Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 the big film nothing else stood a chance.

With an opening gross of $145 million on its debut if nothing stood in its path, the Guardians franchise has become one of Marvels biggest properties and Vol 2 opens over 50% more than the first film.

It is also the 15th consecutive film to debut at number one for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and with a good roster of films going forward there will be no letup.

Falling to number 2 after 3 weeks at the top is The Fate of the Furious (Fast and Furious 8) which takes a still respectable $8.5 million this week which brings its total gross in America to $207 million.

With the release of a Marvel film nothing else dare even think about opening and so there are no other new film this week.

Longest running film and highest total grossing movie on the US box office this week is Beauty and the Beast which is at number 5 this week, has been released for 8 weeks and grossed $487 million.

The Marvel unsung heroes (outside of Deadpool) have gained a massive following since the release of the first film and the inevitable sequel was always going to be a massive blockbuster.

Landing at the top of this weeks UK box office Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 takes a fantastic £13 million making it the 41 highest debut ever, behind The Inbetweeners Movie and head of The Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers.

The original Guardians of The Galaxy opened to £6.3 million in 2014, good for an untried new franchise, this film had bigger hype and has gained a loyal following and more than doubles the debut gross.

With favourable reviews and stars Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana at the top of their games, and with the best hero at the cinema in Baby Groot were looking at a £40 - £50 million total gross.

Falling from the top after 2 weeks if Fast and Furious 8, a £1.7 million 3rd weekend means that the film has now taken £26 million, it will struggle now to catch up with Fast and Furious 7.

Also new this week is Baahubali 2 The Conclusion at number 6 with £0.4 million, The Promise at number 9 with £178,000 and Lady McBeth at number 10 with £174,000.

Sing re-entered the chart this week and at 9 weeks is the longest running film while Beauty and The Beast is the highest total grossing movie with £70 million, its the 8th UK top film ever.

With the release of Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 we see a new film taking over at the top as the Marvel film takes over from Fast and Furious 8.

Released globally but not yet in America the films which has gained a massive following after the first film takes $101.2 million on its debut, largely from the UK, Brazil and Australia.

Guardians 2 this week is released in 37 countries so still has much of the globe to go so expect the gross to ballon over the coming weeks and a $1 billion gross is on the cards.

Fast and Furious 8 this week made it over the $1 billion mark and became the top American film ever released in China, edging out Fast and Furious 7 from the top.

The film currently sits at number 2 on the global box office with a weekly gross of $87.7 million from 67 countries most of which is from the non-American market.

Also making an impressive show this week is Shock Wave which takes $24.4 million from 4 countries, mainly China, and is at number 4 this week.

Highest total grossing movie on across the globe this week is Beauty and The Beast which has now grossed an incredibly $1.14 billion.

As the film pushed itself over the billion mark at the global box office Fast and Furious 8 (The Fate of the Furious in America) hold the top spot for a third weekend.

Fast 8 drops nearly 50% of its taking from last week and this week manages ‘just’ $19.4 million to bring its US total to $192.7 million.

Highest new film of the week is How To Be A Latin Lover which is new at number 2 with a good $12 million debut.

For a smaller independent film this is a great opening, it did play to a largely latin American audience which is to be expected.

Also new this week is Baahubali 2: The Conclusion which is new at 3 with $10 million and Emma Watson and Tom Hanks in The Circle which disappoints with a number 4 debut and $9.3 million.

Highest total grossing movie on the US box office this week is Beauty and The Beast which has now grosses nearly $500 million, it is also the longest running film with 7 weeks on the chart.

In a week where not a lot has changed on the box office and the top 3 are the same headed up by Fast and Furious 8 the highest new entry is Their Finest at number 4.

Proving that the series is still well and truly alive Fast 8 takes £3.5 million on its second weekend of release, this is below the previous films second weekend.

The action drama is doing great guns in the UK and its total UK gross now sits at £23 million.

Highest new film of the week is Their Finest starring Gemma Arterton which makes its debut at number 4 with £0.8 million.

Also new this week is Unforgettable at number 7 which takes a very low £270,000 debut for star Katherine Heigl.

Longest running film of the week is Get Out which has been on the chart for 6 weeks now and highest total grossing film is Beauty and The Beast which is still at number 3 this week and has taken an incredible £68 million.

By next weekend the 8th in the Fast series will have joined number 7 and grossed over a billion while this week the film took $202 million at the global box office from 66 countries.

The films lead country is China where Fast 8 is now the second highest grossing American movie ever after Fast 7, the films total gross now sits at $908 million after 10 days of release .

The Boss Baby is still at number 2 this weekend with $42 million from 79 countries while Beauty and the Beast is still pulling in the punters after 6 weeks and this week pushes its total global gross to $1.1 billion with a $32 million weekend from 51 countries.

The highest new global film this week is Unforgettable which enters at number 7 with $6.5 million from its 17 countries.

With a massive opening last weekend no studio was going to try and compete with The Fate of the Furious for a couple of week and hence the film stays at the top for a second weekend.

Dropping a considerable 60% from last week the Fast and Furious 8 (to give it the UK name) takes $38 million on its second weekend of release.

This brings the films total to a fantastic $163.6 million in the US and it keeps it on tract to s very similar gross to the previous films.

Highest new film of the week is Disney’s wild life documentary Born in Chine, about pandas, which is released to coincide with the global Earth Day celebration.

The House of Mouse has released similar wildlife documentaries each year around this time for the last few years and this years entry takes just over $5 million on its opening.

Also new this week is Unforgettable at number 7 with $4.8 million and The promise which debuts at number 9 with $4 million.

Beauty and the Beast is once again the top total grossing movie this week with $472 million and with 6 weeks on the chart is also the longest running film.

Producing a series best with a £14 million opening weekend Fast and Furious 8 tops the UK box office easily making more than the rest of the chart added together.

This is the first instalment without the late Paul Walker and many thought the series could not continue, but number 8 in the long running series has performed better then expected.

The £14 million opening makes it the 30th best opening ever in the UK ahead ofThe Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 and behind Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of The Sith.

After a week at the top The Boss baby falls to number 2 with £3 million bringing the films total to a rather good £16.7 million after 2 weeks.

We all though we were going to have to look at the new Star Wars film at the end of the year to see the world debut gross record broken, but this week Fast and Furious 8 manages to do it.

Star Wars; The Force Awakens made its debut with $529 million at the global box office, thats without a Chinese release, this week Fast and Furious 8 debuts with $532 million, but with a massive Chinese release.

The series has grown in strength over the years and now like the Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars and Wizzarding World films (to name a few) these film are expected to go over the billion dollar make at the world box office.

F8 will go one to match number 7 and make a billion in the coming weeks and with 9 and 10 around the corner the Fast and Furious series is a force to be reckoned with.

Last weeks top film falls to number 2 this week as The Boss baby takes $52 million over the week and has now grossed $287 million in total globally.

Beauty and The Beast live action has now gone well over a billion globally and this week is at number 3 with a total gross of $1.04 billion.

Disney now have 13 films which have grossed over a billion dollars at the global box office.

There was never going to be any other result to this week US box office number 1 and without any problem at all The Fate of the Furious (Fast and Furious 8 in the UK) makes its debut at the top with a $100 million opening.

The series has gone from strength to strength and with the sad passing of one of its stars last year it cast doubt if the series would survive, but when 7 scored over a billion at the world box office a sequel was inevitable.

Fate takes $98.7 million this weekend and as you'd expect with that figure takes more than the rest of the US box office combined.

The Boss Baby falls to number 2 this week after a couple of week at the top, this week takings are $16 million over the weekend.

The films total gross after 3 weeks of play now sits at $116 million and has proved another $100 million plus film for Fox's animated studio.

Beauty and The Beast is doing fantastic business still and this week is at 3, it is currently the highest total grossing film on the chart with $454 million.

Former number 1 film Get Out is the longest running film and has been on the box office for 8 weeks now and has grossed $167 million.

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

Fast and Furious 8 got its first trailer during a live Facebook event on Sunday night.

Good first trailer with Vin Diesel and Charlize Theron stealing the show.

Disney and Jon Favreau live action version of the classic Rudyard Kipling book makes in incredible showing at the box office this week.

Making it debut at the top with a £9.9 million weekend the film has become the 63rd highest opening weekend in the UK ever, in 2016 Batman V Superman and Deadpool opened higher.

With such a strong opening the film is sure to follow in the footsteps of Cinderella and Alice in Wonderland and be a massive live action film for Disney.

Falling from the top in dramatic style this week is The Huntsman: Winters War which drops to, a second weekend of £0.6 million brings the total to £4.4 million.

Highest total grossing movie on the box office this week is former number 1 film Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice which has now grossed £35.3 million after 4 weeks of play.

It may not have Snow White this time but The Huntsman Winters War makes its debut at the top of the UK box office.

A prequel to 2012's Snow White and The Huntsman this new film has gone one better by making to top of the box office, but has not matched the debut gross.

Huntsman has taken £3.02 million on its debut, half a million less that its predecessor, but its still in the same ball park and could have a similar pattern of release.

Falling to number 3 this week is Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice which takes £2.2 million from the weekend.

The film has failed to ignite the box office in the way the Marvel film have but still the total gross to date is £33.3 million and the highest on the box office.

2015 is over and while Star Wars will try its hardest to dominate 2016, the film that grossed more than any other in 2015 was Jurassic World.

A total gross of $1.6 billion across the globe ensured that the continuation of the Jurassic Park series was as big a hit as the original was back in the 90s.

Second on the list is Fast and Furious 7, as well as fans of the series it seems everyone else also wanted to give Paul Walker a big $1.5 billion send off, RIP.

Avengers Age of Ultron was the 3rd top film of the year and late release The Force Awakens was 4th with the Minions finishing off the top 5.

For the first time in chart history the full top 5 made over a billion dollars each, still no film has made over $2 billion like 2009 when Avatar did this, although I wouldn't bet on The Force Awakens making over that in time.

Here is 2015's world top 10 grossing films

  1. Jurassic World = $1,668,912,312
  2. Fast and Furious 7 = $1,520,032,910
  3. Avengers Age of Ultron = $1,402,750,552
  4. Star Wars: The Force Awakens = $1,228,349,526
  5. Minions = $1,157,275,017
  6. Inside Out = $851,602,426
  7. Spectre = $850,604,955
  8. Mission:Impossible Rogue Nation = $682,142,377
  9. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 = $619,444,461
  10. The Martian = $594,161,725
In 2015 Bond was back, and the resulting film starring Daniel Craig and directed by Sam Mandes was the top grossing film in the UK for 2015.

Spectre has to date taken an incredible £93.4 million but it is still on general release in the UK so this might grow, although it's declining fast so it could get to £95 million at best.

Coming in hard is Star Wars The Force Awakens which so far has taken nearly £66 million at the UK box office, although it will not beat Spectre in 2015 it will beat it by the end of its run.

I also suspect that The Force Awakens will eventually become the highest grossing film ever in the UK, but that will have to wait until 2016.

Also featuring as the top films of 2015 are Jurassic Wold, Avengers Age of Ultron and Minions who all too over £40 million in the UK.

He top five were all sequels (of sorts) and the top 2 were long awaited returns of massively successful franchises, James Bond and Star Wars.

Here is the top 10 film in the UK of 2015

  1. Spectre = £93,444,460
  2. Star Wars: The Force Awakens = £65,911,544
  3. Jurassic World = £63,674,773
  4. Avengers Age of Ultron = £48,334,257
  5. Minions = £47,091,449
  6. Inside Out = £39,114,257
  7. Fast and Furious 7 = £38,385,021
  8. Fifty Shades of Grey = £34,662,255
  9. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 = £27,482,402
  10. Home = £25,092,083
As we come to the end of 2015 it has been revealed by Excipio, a company who tracks data like this, which film got pirated the most.

The film is 2014's Interstellar, directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Matthew McConaughey about space travel to another galaxy.

In the UK the film was the 13 highest grossing film of 2014 and the 10th highest grossing movie across the world in the same year.

The film was downloaded an estimated 47 million times, shockingly this is 17 million higher than last years top illegally downloaded film Wolf of Wall Street.

Here are the top 10 most illegally downloaded film of 2015

  1. Interstellar
  2. Fast and Furious 7
  3. Avengers Age of Ultron
  4. Jurassic World
  5. Mad Max Fury Road
  6. American Sniper
  7. Fifty Shades of Grey
  8. The Hobbit Battle Of The Five Armies
  9. Terminator Genesis
  10. Kingsman The Secret Service
We still have just under 3 months to go before we reach the end of the year but already the top 6 movies of 2015 have made more than 2014's top movie.

Here is the comparison of 2014's top 6 and 2015's top 6, so far:

    2014
  1. The Lego Movie £34,133,383
  2. Dawn of The Planet of The Apes £33,764,545
  3. The Inbetweeners 2 £33,387,932
  4. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 £29,517,393
  5. The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies £28,759,574
  6. Guardians of The Galaxy £28,536,999
    2015
  1. Jurassic World £63,674,773
  2. Avengers Age of Ultron £48,334,257
  3. Minions £46,735,377
  4. Fast and Furious 7 £38,385,021
  5. Inside Out £38,375,834
  6. Fifty Shades of Grey £34,662,255
With still just under 3 month of the year to go we could see the full top 10 of 2015 beating 2014's top film.

The Martian is still doing very well at the UK box office and could reach 2014's The Lego Movies figure, Spectre has just been released and will give 2015's Jurassic World a run for its money.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 is released in a couple of weeks and stands a good chance of making over £35 million.

As if leaving the best to last we have of course Disney/Lucasfilms will release Star Wars: The Force Awakens on December 18th.

An interesting scenario with this film, being released so late in the year much of its gross will come in 2016, but I fully expect it to break various records during its first couple of weeks and it will make over £35 million before the end of the year.

Check back each week to see how these and other new films perform at the UK box office.

This week on the UK video chart Jurassic World stomps its way in and takes over a the top of the chart.

Jurassic World was the summer hit of 2015, released on the 12th of June it came 14 years after the previous instalment if the series.

On its debut weekend the film made £19.3 million at the UK box office placing it well and truly on the top spot.

The film hung around for a reasonable 10 weeks on the UK box office and managed to make an incredible £63.6 million in UK cinemas.

Ignoring the theory of diminishing returns the Fast and the Furious series goes from strength to strength as the Fast and Furious 7 has not only the largest opening of them all but the largest April opening ever in the US.

Anticipation for the film has been growing since the tragic death of series original Paul Walker in 2013, and the $147 million debut of the film has shown that the fans just love this franchise.

whether this is the last or not remains to be seen, but it;s the last film with the original cast and will go on to the the highest grossing of the series.

Falling into second place this week with a $27 million second weekend gross is Dreamworks Home, it's total gross is now $95 million.

Also new in the US this weekend is Helen Mirren in Woman in Gold which lands at 7 with a $2 million opening.

Now in it's second weekend of release Dawn of the Apes easily hangs on to the top spot with a weekend take of £3.7 million, this brings it's total gross to £17 million after 10 days of release.

Highest new film of the week is Dwayne Johnson in a retelling of Hercules, an all out action film rather than historical retelling of the Greek myth it's directed by Brett Ratner.

Hercules took a gross of £1.5 million on it's opening weekend, it has a long was to go to even be one of Johnson's best films as he's been part of the Fast and Furious series and The Mummy series.

Likewise Brett Ratner has been part of the X-Men series and directed the 2 Rush Hour movies, and also directed a Hannibal Lector film, all high grossing franchises.

Hercules could sink quite fast especially with some of the new releases coming in the next few weeks which will be ultimately bigger box office hits.

There are plenty of other new releases this week in the form of
The Purge Anarchy at 3
Earth to Echo at 6
Kickat 8
The House of Magic at 10

If you compare this to the 1998 film of the same name that's £2.3 million higher but taking inflation into account this is almost an identical debut gross, although the 1998 film did open mid July.

Sorry about the late report this week, Easter holidays has delayed things.

This week Captain America: The Winter Soldier returns to the top of the UK box office, surprisingly knocking Rio 2 down to third, surprisingly because it's the Uk Easter holidays and the one big kids film seems to have died at the box office, although Captain America does have teenage appeal.

Fast Five starring Vin Diesel was downloaded more than 9 million times, in second place was The Hangover Part II and in third place was Thor. The argument for Pirated movies has been a long and intense once, but all 3 of these films were big hits at the cinema with each one taking over or close to half a billion dollars in box office takings.

I'm not sure what this list tells us, I'll let you make up your own minds, cinema attendances were down this year but were in the middle of a world wide financial crisis, personally I think that on the whole people who will see the film in cinemas will do and then maybe down load the movie, people who download the movie and don't see it in cinemas would never anyway. This is an interesting list so for your pleasure take a look at the top 10 most downloaded films of 2011 and by all means let me know your thoughts.
