5th July 2017

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.

15th March 2017

It was paws V claws at this weeks box office as Kong Skull Island and Logan battled it out for the top spot and the new film of Kong won the battle.

From the same production team that brought us Godzilla in 2014 Kong Skull Island is set in the same universe and is set to start a "monsters" universe similar to that of the Marvel and DC cinematic universes.

Kong opens similar to Godzilla with just over £6 million, but the film was far better received than Godzilla with the critics with a surprise amount of praise for the monster film.

Godzilla went on to gross £17 million in the UK and there is nothing to suggest this wont do similar if not better.

Logan falls into second place this week with £3.8 million after a single week at the top, this brings the films total gross to £16 million after 10 days of release.

This means that on its second weekend the film is already the best of the solo Wolverine movies and it still has plenty of milage left.

A couple of interesting things to note this week, if the chart were taken on a Monday - Sunday then Logan would have still been the top film.

Also Moulin Rouge which is on a Secret Cinema run at the moment and is number 13 on the weekend chart would have been number 4 with £2 million for the week.

There are no other new released in the top 10 this week but Elle makes a new entry at number 11 with £0.2 million and Dancer is new at 12 also with £0.2 million.

Longest run this week is Lion with 8 weeks on the chart and highest total grossing movie is Sing with £28 million.

7th March 2017

This week making its debut at the top of the UK box office is the critically acclaimed Wolverine movie Logan starring Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart.

The solo Wolverine movies have not had the best of times at either the box office or with critics, but Logan bucks that trend and gets the 78 highest debut weekend in the UK with £9.44 million.

Compared to both X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Wolverine this is far higher with those films taking £6 million and £4 million respectively, it will do better than both those films.

The Lego Batman Movie falls to number 2 after 3 weeks at the top with a £1.5 million weekend which brings the films total gross to £24.9 million and is currently the second highest grossing movie of 2017.

Also new this week are Viceroys House which is at 3 with £0.9 million and Fist Fight at 10 with £0.4 million.

La La Land is both the longest running film on the UK box office with 8 weeks so far and the highest grossing with £29.8 million, it is also the top grossing film of 2017 so far.

1st March 2017

A very quiet weekend on the UK box office and The Lego Batman Movie hold onto the top spot for a third consecutive week, and with a virtually static top 6 Patriots Day is the top new film at 7.

On its third weekend at the top Lego Batman takes £2.8 million which brings its total gross in the UK to £23 million, compared the The Lego Movie this is still running a shade under.

The film took over £5 million for the period Monday - Sunday which made it the top film for the week as well.

A third weekend at number 2 is therefore in order for Fifty Shades Darker with £1.5 million for the weekend and £20.3 million in total.

With Sing, John Wick Chapter 2, Hidden Figures and The Great Wall all holding tight in the top 6 the highest new film is Patriots Day at number 7.

The Mark Wahlberg starring film about the Boston Marathon bombing took £843,380 for the weekend and is one of the actors lowest debuting movies.

La La Land, which had a good, if confusing night at the Oscars this year, takes the honour of being the top total grossing movie this weekend with a total gross of £29 million and the longest running movie with a 7 week run.

With a £4.4 million weekend gross Lego Batman retains the number position in the UK for a second weekend.

Also a sequel but this time it is doing far better the its predecessor, John Wick made its debut in 2015 with just over half a million pound, so the sequel has done more than 4 times better.

19th July 2013

Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are reunited for a third film this week in new release The Worlds End, about pubs, drinking and the end of the world.

Their first film together Shaun of the Dead was a big hit back in 2004, and has since achieved a cult status and it's fair to say it is a British classic.

2007 saw them re-unite in Hot Fuzz which become a bigger than hit than Shaun achieving a UK gross of £20 million, it also made big stars of the 2 principle actors and director Wright.

This one completes the trilogy that has become known by the writers, Wright and Pegg, as the Cornetto trilogy, and is destined to be an even bigger hit.

I fully expect The Worlds End to be an even bigger hit, the two stars have been doing the press rounds and have been funny and likeable. A top place debut is very likely, although with Monsters University not doing that well last weekend because of the hot UK weather it might make that guarantee an uncertainty as Monsters could still rake in the audience, although the 2 films are pitched at a very different market.

24th February 2011

This week the Simon Pegg/Nick Frost written film Paul tops the UK box office chart with a weekend take of £5,517,121. The film from the producers of Hot Fuzz have taken their craft to America to make a film about a couple of geeks seeking out aliens in Area 51, only to find one that sounds like Seth Rogan.

Dropping a single place after one week is Gnomeo and Juliet which has another impressive weekend with £2,223,978 taking its total gross to £6,373,301.

Still riding a high on its award buzz, and it wont stop anytime soon with the big one coming this weekend, is The Kings Speech, another million plus weekend with £1,685,180 which brings it's total now to £37,127,599.

True Grit this week falls to number 4 with £1,466,979 while Martin Lawrence flogs a dead horse at 5 with a new Big Mommas House film, this time dragging his poor son into the equation with a weekend take of £1,433,778.

A stella weekend last week has meant that the top 7 films on the chart all took above £1 million.

Compared to this time last year the chart is much higher is grosses. Last year Avatar was still doing massive business at the box office as the 3D tax was really starting to show how far it can take the gross of a film while The Princess and the Frog from Disney was still doing well at 2, highest new entry was Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones at 3.
