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.
Taking an acceptable, if low, £4.6 million over the Friday - Sunday weekend San Andreas is by far the biggest hit for the actor in a primary role.
The biggest film he has appeared in, although as an ensemble cast of many stars is Fast and Furious 7 from this year which is still doing well at the box office.
Pitch Perfect 2 falls to number 2 this week after 2 weeks at the top, to date the film has taken £14 million in the UK.
Also new this week is Man Up starring Simon Pegg at 7 and Danny Collins starring Al Pacino at number 10.
