Tom Cruise has always been a film favourite at the UK box office having scored hit film after hit film, but his latest film The Mummy which must have seemed like a sure fire hit falls at number 2 this week.

It was a very close call in the end with The Mummy pulling in £3.3 million on its debut, if you compare this to Cruises last film Jack Reacher Never Go Back it is a million higher, but compared to his last franchise film Mission:Impossible Rogue Nation it is a couple of million shy.

Despite if this means the actor is starting to loose his sure fire hit status if you compare this The Mummy to the 1999 Brendan Fraser version of the film its about equal, and that nearly 20 years ago.

Remaining at the top for a second week, and by the thinest of margins is Wonder Woman which takes £3.4 million this weekend.

This brings the films total gross after 10 days of play to £12.8 million and well on track to be one of the highest grossing movies of the year.

Also new this week at number 5 is the Live Cinema event Take That Wonderland Live From The O2 with £1 million.

New at 6 is My Cousin Rachel while another event movie Peter Pan: NT Live 2017 is new at 11.

With Beauty and The Beast returning to the top 15 this week it becomes once again the top grossing movie with £72 million and the longest running film at 12 weeks.

Historical charts

A year ago
Me Before You remained at the top of the box office for a second weekend and with a strong upper chart the top new film was The Boss at number 7.

Five years ago
Prometheus stayed at the top for a second weekend with The Pact the highest new film at 4.

Ten years ago
Ocean’s Thirteen was the new film making its debut a the top, its knocked Pirates of The Caribbean: At Worlds End down to number 2 after 2 weeks at the top.

Fifteen years ago
Four weeks at number one for Star Wars Episode II: Attack of The Clones while the top new film was Unfaithful at number 2.

Twenty years ago
The fifth Element made its debut at the top knocking Liar Liar down to number 3.

Twenty five years ago
The Lawnmower Man was the top new film at number one knocking Wayne’s World down to number 2 after 2 weeks on top.

Tom Cruise launches his latest vehicle this weekend in the US but it is no match for the mammoth Wonder Woman which spends a second weekend at the top.

Tom Cruise spent the early part of his career avoiding franchise films but since starring and producing the Mission:Impossible series of film he has become more seduced by the idea.

With Another Jack Reacher film released earlier this year and another Top Gun film promised Cruise here starts with The Mummy which promises to kick off a Dark Universe franchise.

The Mummy kicks off its US box office run with a number 2 debut and $32.2 million, really not the sort of business Universal were expecting, add to that bad reviews and Cruise may start worrying.

Wonder Woman holds onto the top spot this week with a $57.1 million second weekend, easily beating The Mummy, this brings the films total gross to $205 million.

Also new this week is It Comes At Night, $6 million and number 6 and Megan Leavey, new at 8 with $3.7 million.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 is this weeks longest running film with 6 weeks on the chart and the highest total grossing movie with $366 million.

There is still no stopping the live action Beaty and The Beast as it holds off Scarlett Johansson in Ghost in The Shell as the manga adaptation debuts at number 2.

On its third weekend at the top of the UK box office Beauty and The Beast takes £6.7 million, yet again another excellent weekend gross.

This brings the films total gross to a fantastic £51 million over its 3 week UK release and by far makes it the top film of the year.

Making its debut in second place this week is the live action adaptation of the 1996 Manga film Ghost in The Shell.

Taking a relatively good £2.3 million the film has done well, but with the hype and mainly positive reviews we could have been looking at higher.

Maybe the film will be a slow burner and with many teens on Easter holidays this could do well over the coming weeks.

I'm sure its not escaped your attention that the top 2 films this week are live action versions of classic animations.

Also new this week is Smurfs The Lost Village at number 3 with £1.3 million, this film will do well in the next couple of weeks and could challenge Beauty and The Beast for the top spot.

Free Fire is at number 7 and the special cinema event in aid of Comic Relief Peter Kays Car Share A Second Series Celebration lands at number 10, and it was only shown in one cinema chain.

Many long running films are not around anymore hence the longest running film this week is Logan which has been around 5 weeks while Beauty and The Beast is the top grossing movie.

Boo! A Madea Halloween is still at number 5 and is still only released in a single country, America! Top total grossing movie on the global top 10 this week is Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children which has now grossed $243 million.

Tyler Perry keeps a grip on the top of the US box office despite some competition from Tom Hanks and Tom Cruise.

Boo! A Madea Halloween retains the number 1 position in America with a second weekend gross of $16.6 million, this brings the films total gross after 10 days of release to $52 million.

Coming in at number 2 is the third film in the Dan Brown Da Vinci Code trilogy Inferno, the film would have been expected to go to the top but Halloween was too strong a call.

Tom cruise keeps the pressure up but falls to number 3 with Jack Reacher Never Go Back, its second weekend take is $9.5 million.

Top total grossing movie on the US box office this week is Storks with $68.2 million , it is also the longest running film at 6 weeks.

This weekend Jack Reacher gave it a good go but in the end her was not good enough to stop the Trolls from hitting the top on its debut weekend.

The new IP from Dreamworks hits the top with a weekend gross of £5.4 million which is about average for an animation from the studio, Kung Fu Panda 3, the last film from them took £4.7 million on its opening.

If things go as usual Trolls could get somewhere in the £10 million mark especially with a fairly decent debut.

The Girl on The Train falls from the top this week after a couple of weekends at the top, a £2 million weekend takes the film to £17.7 million after 3 weeks of release.

Also new this week is Jack Reacher Never Go Back which lans in the runner up spot with £2.6 million, this is in the ballpark, but lower, of the first film with took £3.5 million on its debut.

Longest running film of the week is The BFG which has been around now for 13 weeks and the highest total grossing movie is Bridget Jones's Baby now on £44.5 million.

Its a very quiet time for big new releases at the moment and Jack Reacher manages to top the global box office with a weekly gross of $54 million from 31 countries.

After a week at the top Inferno falls into second place this week with $28.9 million, this brings the films total gross after 2 weeks of release to $64.8 million from 58 countries.

Also released this week making an impact on the global box office is US number 1 Boo! A Madea Halloween which is at 3 with $27.6 million from just the one country.

Ouija: Origin Of Evil is also new at number 5 and has taken $21 million and is released in 23 countries.

Highest total grossing movie on the global box office this week is Miss Peregrine' Home For Peculiar Children which has now taken $224 million and is still out in 65 countries.

At the US box office this week Tyler Perry's Boo! A Medea Halloween does the unthinkable and beats Tom Cruise in Jack Reacher Never Go Back to the top.

The Medea series has never taken off here in the UK but in America each film does well at the box office and Tyler Perry is a massive star.

Boo! goes the to the top on a very quiet weekend at the box office with a weekend gross of $27.6 million.

Falling from the top is The Accountant, now at number 3 with a weekend take of $14 million which brings the films total US gross to $47.9 million.

Also entering the chart this week is Jack Reacher Never Go Back at number 2 and Ouija Origin of Evil at number 3.

Its been a very quiet period on the US box office recently and the top total grossing film on the chart this week is Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children with $74 million while the longest running film is Storks at 5 weeks.

After a fairly lacklustre summer season of 2016 where the highlight was a bunch of anti-heroes in the shape of the Suicide Squad, will the Autumn schedule deliver?

We had high hopes but had few thrills, out side of the DC movie Suicide Squad Ghostbusters gave us a good laugh but didn't deliver as expected Finding Dory pulled in the audiences but left us flat.

The rest of the year has some highlights but there is caution as the 2 biggest films are both sequels outside of their parent film series.

Before we even get to them in the latter part of the year we have a number of promises, Captain Fantastic starring Viggo Mortensen looks promising and American hit Kubo and The Two String gives a refreshing animation outside Disney.

Of course we have British favourite Bridget Jones's Baby which is getting good reviews at the moment and a bit after that the recently announced Blair Witch remake/reboot/sequel.

Getting a lot of marketing hype is the remake/retelling of The Magnificent Seven and the looking promising, and a return to form for Tim Burton is Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children.

Tom Hanks returns to detective mode for a third time in Inferno, although I didn't like the previous 2 films and then another sequel emerges mid October with Tom Cruise in Jack Reacher Never Go Back.

Marvel return to their cinematic universe with a new hero in the shape of Doctor Strange and another sequel/reboot come in early November with Rings, the next in (surprise) The Ring series.

After the hotly anticipated Arrival starring Amy Adams arrives the season kicks up a gear with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the first move into the Wizarding World outside Harry Potter.

The film, penned by J. K. Rowling, is being hyped to death and not surprisingly, the 8 Potter films did fantastic business at the box office and this is directed by series expert David Yates whic just seems to get the ideas Rowling writes about.

Warner Bros. will be hoping this shows there is still life in the seemingly dormant series and please fans of the original and set up a new generation, 2 more film are already planned.

After that injection things go quiet with unwanted sequel Bad Santa 2 and Tom Hanks (again) in Scully the story of the pilot who landed a plane on the Hudson River.

Then to finish the year off another much lover series goes off piste with Rogue One A Star Wars Story, taking place just before the events of the original Star Wars.

The trailer have looked good and after the excellence of Star Wars: The Force Awakens expectation are massive.

This is a massive risk for Lucasfilms and Disney, and it will either boost the series to height never imagined or will do to the series what Episodes I - III did and nearly kill it, fortunately it has recovered!

To round the rear off we have Michael Fassbender trying to do what many other have failed to do and bring a video game series to the screen in Assassins Creed.

Another big week for new releases and for the second week in a row an all new top 3 on the video chart with Goosebumps leading the way.

Starring Jack Black the film was released at the UK cinema on 5th February 2016 where it entered the UK box office at number 1.

The following week the film fell to number 5 and had a relatively short 6 week stay on the UK box office before disappearing.

In that time though the film did manage to gross a fairly reasonable £8.5 million although this is quite low for a Jack Black film for which King Kong is his highest grossing movie.

Also for director Rob Letterman it is his lowest grossing movie to date.

The rest of the top 3 reads like: Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie is new at number 2 and Ride Along 2 is new at number 3.

Last weeks top film Spotlight falls right down to number 8 this week.

Soccer documentary Bobby is also new this week at number 12.

In what is a quiet week compared to recent weeks Jack Black takes his latest film Goosebumps to the top of the UK box office beating Dads Army in the process.

The children's fantasy film enters at the top of the box office on its debut with £2.7 million pound which is low for both star Jack Black and director Rob Letterman.

Black has his next film Kung Fu Panda 3 about to be released in the UK which will most likely debut much higher and be a bigger hit.

British favourite Dads Army gets a big screen remake this week and enters the box office at number 2 with just over £2 million.

The World War 2 film starring Toby Jones and Catherine Zeta Jones, as well as a whole host of British talent, has maybe performed below expectations but will most likely hang around for a fair few weeks.

Last week top film, The Revenant, fall to number 3 this week after 3 weeks at the top, but with Oscar just round the corner there could be a resurgent later in February.

Highest total grossing film on the box office is Star Wars: The Force Awakens which has now taken an incredible $120 million in the UK and is at number 6 this week.

Twenty years ago
The Brady Bunch Movie made its debut at the top of the box office knocking Jack and Sarah fell down to number 2.

A hot weekend meant that business at the UK box office was slow hence the top 15 in the UK took just under £10 million in total.

Paul Feig directs Melissa McCarthy is the number 1 film this week which makes it's debut on the UK box office.

The critically acclaimed comedy from the same director and star as Bridesmaids from 2011 this weekend took £2.5 million, low for this time of year.

Last weeks top film, San Andreas, falls a single place to number 2 with a weekend gross of £1.7 million, this gives the film a 10 day gross of £8.3 million and it will be the highest grossing Dwayne Johnson starring film.

Interesting note: If the chart had been based on Monday - Sunday ticket sales San Andreas would have been the top film.

Other new film to hit the chart this week are: Insidious Chapter 3 which is new at 3 and Dil Dhadakne Do which is new at number 9.

Also worth a mention is The Empire Strikes Back which is “new” at 8, the reason being, like Back To The Future last year, Secret Cinema have a couple of month of event showing for the film and this weekend took £304,115.

Clint Eastwood is riding high on the wave of critical success and award success, and celebrates his Oscar nominated film by seeing it top the UK box office.

He now manages the double of having the top film in the UK and America at the same time, and if Oscar night is fruitful it could see American Sniper do some really big business.

This week the film, on it's 3rd week of release, takes £2.5 million giving it a UK total gross of £6.6 million, it's world gross is $252 million to date.

Tak3n falls from the top spot after 2 week in the position, a £1.8 million weekend brings it's total gross to £15,1million.

Ex Machina is the highest new film of the week at 5, a £1.1 million weekend is quite weak but the Alex Garland film has had really good reviews which could help it in future weeks.

Also new this week is: Mortdecai disappointingly at 7 and The Gambler at 8.

Fifteen years ago
Sleepy Hollow stayed at the top of the box office with the highest new film coming in at number 3 in the shape of Stigmata.

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

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.

Robocop 2014 was released at UK cinemas early February this year making the number 2 spot on it's debit week, beaten by Mr. Peabody and Sherman, when it grossed £2.4 million.

Over a 4 week period on the box office it grossed £7.7 million and never climbed higher than it's number 2 debut spot.

Last weeks top film, Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit, has a hefty fall down the chart to number 8 this week after it's debut last week.

The Monuments Men at 2
Lone Survivor at 3
Last Vegas at 5

After appearing in a couple of films, specifically Jack Reacher, that failed to be big hits, his new film Oblivion becomes the top film in the UK this week.

Taking a solid £5 million over the weekend the film easily displaced the animated film from DreamWorks which falls to second place. The Croods has done really well and has a total gross of over £22 million to date.

Fifteen years ago it was still Titanic, by which point it has by far become the biggest film in the UK ever and it's total was running at £51 million. In this week Leonardo DiCaprio hit a double whammy at the top as he was also the star of the highest new film, at 2, The Man in the Iron Mask.

A single week at the top was all Bruce Willis could manage as Wreck-It Ralph jumps back to the top with a strong weekend after the school half term.

3 weeks of release and Disney recapture the top spot with their video game inspired film. A weekend gross of £3,420,196 takes it's total to £18,624,692 making another big hit for the House of Mouse.

A Good Day to Die Hard only slipped to second place which made the highest new film of the week land at 3, horror spookfest Mama took £1.5 million for the weekend.

This time last year another spooky horror film was still at number 1, The Woman in Black was spending it's 3rd week at the top with £2.4 million. Highest new films was Denzel Washington in Safe House with £2.1 million.

Five years ago Jumper was holding the top spot while whacky comedy starring Jack Black and Mos Def Be Kind Rewind was the highest new film at 2.

Ten years ago it was yet another scary horror film, the US remake of The Ring, which debuted in the top spot with £2.2 million.

And fifteen years ago Titanic was continuing it's record breaking surge at the top of the box office, 5 weeks in, still the top film and £34.1 million in the bank.

Keeping hold of the box office number one over the festive period is The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey which over the weekend starting 28th December took £6,850,728, up nearly a million from the previous weekend.

In total the Hobbit film has now taken just shy of 36 million pounds.

Highest new entry of the week is the Tom Cruise film Jack Reacher at number 3. A bit of a surprise this for a new Cruise action film, but there has been little publicity for the film and the adult theme has maybe kept some of the audience away, Reacher took £3,575,066.

Worthy of note this week, Skyfall has now become the first film in UK box office history to take over 100 million pounds, this far outstrips the 92 million pound gross of Avatar which had a 3D sales boosts.

This time last year Tom Cruise did have the top film, this time with his franchise movie Mission:Impossible Ghost Protocol which debuted at the top with £8,188,209.

Five years ago Will Smith had one of the biggest hits of his movie career to date with I Am Legend which debuted at the top grossing a quite brilliant £11,009,365.

Ten years ago we were in Middle Earth for the second time with The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers which held the top spot with £8,177,801, while musical Chicago debuted the highest at 8 with £113,386 on limited release.

The first poster hit last week for Oblivion which was a great looking one sheeter and got us intrigued for this new Tom Cruise film, now the first trailer hits and gives us some clue to the story and tone of the film.

This is Cruise back in sci-fi territory for the first time since he was directed by Steven Spielberg in War of the Worlds back in 2005.

Take a look at the trailer below, it looks like Cruise will be in full action mode for 2013, starting with Jack Reacher out soon (actually just about has a 2012 release date of 26th December) and Oblivion released April 12th 2013.

This week Chronicle tops the UK box office on it's opening weekend grossing £2,193,072 which makes it the highest new film of the week.

A year ago Disney's Tangled was still at the top while the highest new film was Oscar winning film The Fighter at 3.

5 years ago Dream Girls entered at the top making it the number 1 film and the highest new film.

10 years ago Tom Cruise was holding onto the top with Vanilla Sky and Jack Black took the top new film honors with Shallow Hal.

Last weekend the Colin Firth and Helena Bonham Carter starrer The Kings Speech tool the top spot at the box office with a gross of £3,523,102 over Friday – Sunday.

The film directed by Tom Hooper and also starring Geoffrey Rush has already won multiple awards and is being tipped for many more during the busy January/February awards season and Oscar glory is expected.

Also new this week is Oscar winner Danny Boyle's new film 127 Hours. A true story of a climber who gets stuck in a craves by a bolder lodging his arm stars James Franco in an almost solo performance, and again is tipped for award glory this season. 127 Hours takes £ 2,168,570 this week.

Falling from is festive position at the top, Little Fockers falls to 3rd place this week with £ 1,798,677 bringing it's total gross in the UK to £ 15,282,292.

Jack Blacks Gulliver's Travels falls to 4th this week, taking £ 1,554,266 and bringing it's total gross to £ 10,881,583.

Last new entry in the top five this week is Russell Crowe starring in The Next Three Days, a disappointing opening for the film, although it still managed to take over a million for the weekend with £1,046,333. This years top 5, although good is down on last years top 5 where Avatar was still taking incredible weekend grosses as was the runner up film Sherlock Holmes.

Jack Black scores the first top film of the year in the re-telling of the giant movie Gulliver's travels.

Supported by a cast of many British actors including the likes of Billy Connelly, Catherine Tate and James Cordon, the giant movie takes in an excellent £7,028,747 over the New Year period, no doubt helped by the mega press that Jack Black and other members of the cast have done on British TV.

Black has had a mixed bag of success in the UK with his last film, Year One, bombing with £2,776,236, but then he's had hits like King Kong which took £26,080,026 in the UK, so Gulliver's Travels will rank among his higher grossing movies.

Falling to second this week is The Little Fockers with £2,614,802 bringing it to £11,159,635 over a ten day period.

New at 3 is Jake Gyllenhaal in a film directed by Edward Zwick, Love and Other Drugs takes £1,606,253 over the weekend.

New at 4 Peter Weir directs Colin Farrell and Jim Sturgess in The Way Back to the tune of £1,327,650 and falling And finally in the top 5 falling is The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of The Dawn Treader which takes £1,207,264 which brings it total gross now to £11,263,418 which is the lowest of all the Narnia films. This week the top 7 films all took over a million pound each in box office takings, very good compared to last week when only the top film took over a million, and better than last year when only the top 4 took over a million.

No surprises to see that the Batman film The Dark Knight is the top grossing film in 2008 taking a staggering $994,896,852, thats £689,395,105 at todays rate of exchange.

The hype surrounding the film was immense as we went into the year and with the sad and untimely death of one of it's stars, Heath Ledger, this gave the film and even greater must see edge, and the film didn't disappoint, Ledger especially.

With The Dark Knight the runaway success it was the second biggest film of the year across the globe was a return of an old friend in the shape of Indiana Jones. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull took an incredible $783,011,114 (£542,544,744), not bad for an old man who's not been seen since 1989.

Third most popular film of the year is also the biggest animated feature of the year and Pixar/Disney had nothing to do with it. Jack Black lends his voice to the Kung Fu Panda which took $633,395,021 (£438,636,528) this year worldwide.

Also making strong numbers throughout the world this year were UK favorites Mamma Mia! with $568,704,210 (£393,821,544) and Quantum of Solace with $540,902,659 (£374,504,077) although both films are still plying in UK cinemas.
