There were two new big entries on the box office this week and the 2016 reboot of Ghostbusters was the highest of them.

Directed by Paul Feig and starring Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig the new take on the classic 1984 film tops the UK box office with £4.3 million.

The original movie took a total of £12 million in the UK and time will tell if this will climb to those height.

The Secret Life of Pets falls to number 3 after 3 weeks at the top with a weekend gross of £2 million gross which brings the films total gross to £25.7 million.

The Secret Life of Pets is also the highest total grossing film on this weeks box office.

Also new this week at number 2 is the 5th in the Ice Age series Ice Age Collision Course, its debut gross is £3.7 million.

Historical charts

A year ago
Marvels smallest hero Ant-Man made its debut at the top of the box office with Minions falling into second place.

Five years ago
The last Harry Potter film Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2 made its debut at the top while Transformers: Dark of The Moon falls into second place.

Ten years ago
Holding on to the top spot was Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Mans Chest leaving Superman Returns to debut at number 2.

Fifteen years ago
Shrek went back to the top of the box office knocking off Lara Croft Tomb Raider while the highest new film was as low as 5 in the shape of Pokémon 3 The Movie.

Twenty years ago
Mission:Impossible held on to the top spot keeping The Cable Guy off the top and leaving it to debut at number 2.

Twenty five years ago Thelma and Louise made its debut at the top knocking off The Naked Gun 2 ˝ The Smell of Fear after a couple of weeks at the top.

Despite a number of new releases this week Finding Dory still manages to dominate the global box office now after 3 weeks of release.

Dory this week grossed $76.3 million globally, now released in 41 countries, this brings its total gross now over the half billion mark to $538.2 million.

There are still many countries where the film has not had a release so the film making it to billion mark is probably at this stage a certainty.

Highest new film of the week is The Legend of Tarzan which shows up in 20 countries and has a debut gross of $56.9 million.

The week had a number of new releases but with the good weather and holidays throughout the world nothing managed to capture the market, or maybe it was the lack of summer blockbuster? The rest of the new releases are as follows: The Purge Election Years at 5, The BFG at 8, Ice Age Collision Course at 9, although it must be said that these film all had single digit country release and are no where near saturation yet.

Here is the top 5 global box office for this week.

  1. Finding Dory - $76,300,542
  2. The Legend Of Tarzan - $56,935,000
  3. Independence Day Resurgence - $56,700,000
  4. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Out Of The Shadows - $31,265,000
  5. The Purge Election Year - $30,997,840
Another slow week at the UK box office as the British bask in the summer sun which resulted in small box office takings and Monsters University retaining the top spot.

10 days on release and a second weekend as the number one film in Great Britain Monsters University takes £2.7 million pushing it's total UK gross to £8.6 million.

Highest new film of the weekend is The Worlds End, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost on a bender that sees the world end, directed by long time collaborator Edgar Wright.

The Worlds end took £2.1 million at the box office, much lower that I would have expected for an anticipated film, but like last weekend the weather has clearly kept people outside.

In accordance with my expectations The Worlds End didn't take the top spot from Monsters University, it was way off by nearly £700,000 and also the box office taking stayed quite stagnant, although with the summer holidays now upon us next week could be different.

Last year at this time The Dark Knight Rises took the box office by storm taking £14.3 million on it's opening weekend, knocking Ice Age Continental Drift from the top and also becoming the highest new film of the week.

Five years ago Mamma Mia was still at the top slowly raking in the money, and also keeping Wall-E from debuting at the top, the Pixar film has to settle for number 2.

Ten years ago The Hulk starring Eric Bana and directed by Ang Lee debuted at the top knocking Charlie's Angels Full Throttle down to number 3.

Fifteen years ago Godzilla took the top spot on it's debut weekend from Six Days Seven Knights.

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.

Absolutely no surprise at all that The Dark Knight Rises is the biggest film of the week, and the £14 Million debut weekend is as expected.

The tragedy that took place in America on Thursday night at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises does not seem to have affected the box office over here with a weekend take of £ 14,362,443 it is very close to to 2008's The Dark Knight which opened just north of £11 million. The best opener of the year is still Avengers Assemble nearly £16 Million.

With the release of the new Batman film there were no other new films this week but last weeks top film Ice Age Continental Drift still does the numbers and has a weekend of £ 2,112,021.

This time last year Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was still at the top having taken £ 44,271,997 in 2 weeks while Pixars Cars 2 was the top new release with £3,541,664 at 2.

Five years ago Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix was still at the top with a total gross of £30,062,094 after 2 weeks and the remake of John Walters Hairspray was the highest new film at 2 with £2,045,912.

Ten years ago Scooby Doo was still top with a gross of £9,420,817 and with the top 2 staying the same the highest new film was Stuart Little 2 at 3 with a take of £1,343,398.

The Amazing Spider-man could only manage a single week at number 1 as Ice Age: Continental Drift climbs back up to the top.

Previously Ice Age 4 managed to get to the top in a very quiet week in only 134 screens across the UK, this week the film has expanded to 522 screens and take an amazing £10,087,052, so in actual fact the film has taken more in it's 3rd weekend of release than most films make in their first weekend. To date Ice Age 4 has taken £13,051,881.

With Spider-Man's takings falling by 65% it falls to number 2, the longest stay in the chart this week is Men in Black 3 which has so far grossed £21,539,847

This time last year Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2 made it's debut at the top of the chart with £23,753,171 and was in the process the highest new film.

Five years ago another Harry Potter film was at the top on it's opening weekend, this time it was Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix which opened with a £16,493,305, no 3D this time see!

Ten years ago, a time before any Harry Potter films, Scooby Doo debuted at the top with £5,129,109, knocking Minority Report from the top.

And 15 years ago The Lost World: Jurassic park was riding high, while 20 years ago, ironically, Batman Returns was the big film, and what big film is released this weekend?

Last weekend UK cinema goers came out in big numbers for the revamp of the Spider-Man story in The Amazing Spider-man. The film which stars Britain's Andrew Garfield had an excellent opening weekend where the web slinger take was an amazing £11,091,972 and took 4-5 times more than the rest of box office combined.

The longest running film in the top 15 is Men in Black 3 with 7 weeks on the chart.

Last weeks top film, Ice Age Continental Drift, drops to number 2 taking £719,769 over the weekend, increasing its total over 2 weeks to £2,327,078.

A year ago Transformers: Dark of The Moon was still at the top having taken a total of £19,701,418 while The Guard was the top new film with £473,878 at number 5

Five years ago Shrek The Third still topped the chart taking it's total gross to £25,694,674 as Bruce Willis had a fourth outing as John McClain in Die Hard 4_0 as the highest new entry at 2 with £5,004,916

Ten years ago it was all about Tom Cruise as he shot to the top of the UK box office in the Steven Spielberg directed Minority Report taking £4,506,315 on it's debut weekend.

At the UK box office chart this week the fourth Ice Age films takes the number one spot. It was a bad week though as no film in the UK grosses over a million pound in box office takings.

Ice Age: Continental Drift continues the success of the Ice Age series, but with only £853,226 for its opening weekend it's set to be the lowest grossing. Also this week Prometheus continues it's good run and goes back up to number 2 but last weeks top film, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, falls 5 places to number 6.

This weeks top 15 films marks the lowest top 15 since 25th June 2010 when Get Him to the Greek topped the chart and the combined chart took only £ 3,460,985, although the last time no film in the UK took over a million was way back on 28th September 2007 when Run Fatboy Run was in it's 4th week at the top.

This time last year fared much better that last weekend when the 3rd Transformers film, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, took the top spot with an incredible £10,728,503 and also was the top new film of the week.

Five years ago Shrek The Third topped the chart in its opening weekend with and amazing £16,671,727 and it also was the highest new film of the week. And ten year ago Spider-Man was still at the top of the chart having taken it's total gross to £20,953,100 while Murder by Numbers with Sandra Bullock was the highest new film at 2.

The creators of Ice Age have done it again with a new franchise as the Brazilian flightless bird Rio takes the top spot from the hopping rabbit.

It was a slow weekend at the box office with only the top film taking over a million pound and that film is new entry Rio which debuts at the top with £1,515,853, there was little else to challenge the film with the only other new release entering at nine and ten with The Roommate and Mars Needs Moms. Staying firm in second place is Source Code which raked in £848,366 taking its total gross to £2,990,826.

Limitless also hold its position from last week staying in third place with a weekend gross of £737,417 which brings its total to a fairly good £5,744,993.

Four and five and taken up by last weeks rabbit fest falling quite hard with £611,367 taking its total to £2,623,612 and at five Sucker Punch seems to be suffering from not being a summer blockbuster taking £346,399 over the weekend to a total of £1,633,285. This weeks box office is well down on this time last year when Clash of the Titans was riding high on the charts and the top five was full of high earning films How to Train Your Dragon, Kick-Ass, Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang and Alice in Wonderland.
