Making it a trio of weeks at the top this week Wonder Woman beats again The Mummy while the top new film is Churchill at number 5.

The DC Universe from Warner Bros. really has kicked into gear now with Wonder Woman taking £1.8 million on its third weekend of release.

This puts the films total gross in the UK at £16.2 million, although last years Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice made more it was very front loaded and by this point in its run had really slowed down.

The Mummy has done better in the UK than in other territories where it sunk on the second weekend, this week its still at 2 with £1.1 million for a total of £4.9 million.

Highest new film of the week is Churchill which enters the UK box office at number 5 with £392,732.

The film starring Brian Cox and Miranda Richardson has been praised critically but as a small independent film doesn’t get the reach of a high budget blockbuster and was only screened in 345 sites.

The film has done well to take this much and as is often the case with British film it is sure to hang around for many weeks to come.

Other films making their debut this weekend are Gifted starring Chris Evans and the Nick Broomfield documentary Whitney Can I Be Me at number 10.

Longest running film this weekend is The Boss Baby with 11 weeks on the chart while the top grossing movie is Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 which has now grossed £40 million in total.

Twenty five years ago
The Lawnmower Man held onto the top for a second weekend with Dolly Pardon in Straight Talk the top new film at number 4.

Making its debut on the UK box office this week is Sing which lands at the top knocking off La La Land, and in a surprise move keeps of T2 Trainspotting.

Sing is an animated feature from the same stable as Despicable Me and features the voice talent from the likes of Matthew McConaughey and Reece Witherspoon.

The film makes its debut with a rather spectacular £10.4 million debut weekend which makes it the 66 top opening of all time.

Sing replaces La La Land which falls to number 3 this week with a £3.1 million 3rd weekend and a £20.9 million total UK gross.

Missing out on the top spot is the highly anticipated T2 Trainspotting which lands at number 2, the film is an 18 rating so the audience compared to Sing is limited, but £5.1 million is good and any other week would have easily seen the film enter at the top.

Also new this week is Hacksaw Ridge from director Mel Gibson at number 5 with £1.4 million and Rahm at number 7 with £521,000.

Highest total grossing film on the UK box office this week is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story which after 7 weeks has grossed £65.2 million while the longest running film is Trolls with 13 weeks.

On the UK box office this week Emily Blunt knocks off Renee Renée Zellweger as Bridget Jones is no match for The Girl on The Train.

Making its debut with just under £7 million The Girl on The Train is aiming for a similar target audience as Gone Girl which was released early October of 2014 and did very well.

This film which is also based on a bestselling novel has managed to come in £2 million higher despite reviews not being as favourable.

After 3 weeks at the top is it time for Bridget Jones's Baby to surrender the top spot and with a £2.9 million weekend falls to number 2.

The film cant be too sorry for itself as it has grossed £37.8 million so far and at the current pace will most likely become the most successful of the series.

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.

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.

At the top of the UK video charts this week the Krays bio-pic Legend remains at the top despite a rush of new films.

The highest of the new film is Maze Runner The Scorch Trials, the sequel to the 2014 film The Maze Runner.

The Scorch Trials was released in UK cinemas on 11 September 2015 and it entered the chart at number 2, behind Legend! A 6 week cinema run saw the film take a UK gross of £8.6 million in the UK, worldwide the film managed $312.3 million making it the 331st highest grossing world wide move, in the US it took $81 million.

Also new this week is: Sicario at number 3, Macbeth at number 4, Miss You Already at number 7 and The Walk at number 8.

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.

At the global box office last week The Martian retained its lead over the box office in convincing style outgrossing the number 2 film by more than double.

The selling power of The Divergent Series Insurgent was too strong for any new comers this week although there was a trio of new films inside the top 5.

Highest new film of the week is Run All Night starring the ever popular Liam Neeson which enters the video chart at number 2.

The film was released at UK cinemas on 13th March 2015 entering the box office at number 2, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel was too strong to be beaten that week.

It was a bad week for film that week and on it's debut it made less than £1 million pound, the film didn't hand around for long a disappeared after a 3 week run taking £2 million in total.

Also new inside the top 5 this week Get Hard at number 3 and The Water Diviner number 4.

Also new on the video chart this week is Robot Overlords which enters at number 7.

Highly anticipated sequel Pitch Perfect 2 makes it's debut at the top of the box office chart this week despite some strong competition from the Mad Max remake.

Pitch Perfect 2 took a very reasonable £5 million over the weekend which is only a million shy of the entire box office run of the previous film.

Rolling in half a million behind is Mad Max Fury Road, the sequel/remake of the Mel Gibson films received excellent reviews from the critics and was expected to get to the top but the aca-girls were simply too much.

Falling into third this week after a trio of weeks at the top is Avengers Age of Ultron, the Avengers sequel has taken an incredible £43.2 million to date and is the top film of the year so far.

Bombay Velvet at number 14 is the only other new film on the top 15 this week.

Other new film on video this week
The Legend of Hercules at 5
Starred Up at 6

The ever busy Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) is back on the big screen this weekend with the action film Hercules, based on the story of the Greek God and son of Zeus.

Probably not sticking to the legend too closely this is an all out action film that should do well at the UK box office, probably wont have the power to interrupt Apes or Transformers but a healthy top 3 might be in order.

Earth to Echo is the story of a small alien robot that comes to earth and is found by a trio of boys, the rest is predicable and their lives will change forever.

This is aimed squarely at the kids, but with the fantastic weather currently being experienced in the UK this could just get a top 5 entry.

Other new films this week
The Purge: Anarchy
Joe
The House of Magic
Believe

This week there is a trio of new releases which will battle it out for box office supremacy but they may have a battle on their hands with this weeks top film The Fault in Our Stars.

Biggest film of the week is Mrs Browns Boys D'Movie. The big screen debut of the BBC smash hit comedy series sees Agnes Brown and her family doing things on a bigger scale. A cult in Great Britain this could do big business and hit the top spot for a single week.

Chef is from director Jon Favreau and unlike his previous films Iron Man and Cowboys and Aliens this is a low budget low scale movie about life in a foot truck. This should see a top 5 entry on the box office.

Following on from the success of Mama Mia! and Sunshine on Leith, Walking on Sunshine is a feel good movie with lots of song performances throughout, directed by Max Giwa and Dania Pasquini this could see a top 5 entry.

There were a trio of big new releases this week and as expected The Fault in Our stars hit the top, the other two didn't perform any where near expectations.

Based on the novel of the same name The Fault in Our Stars is a teenage love story and a tragedy. Directed by Josh Boone who previously directed Stuck in Love from 2003 and starring Shailene Woodley.

Taking £3.4 million from the weekend it knocks 22 Jump Street into the number 2 spot after 2 weeks at the top, Jump Street has taken £12.7 million to date.

Under performing and new at 6 this week is the Clint Eastwood directed Jersey Boys. Taking just £415,608 on it's debut this could be set to be one of Eastwood's worst performing films.

Also not doing as well as expected is Kevin Costner's return to the big screen in 3 Days to Kill. The McG directed film only managed £324,560 over the weekend.

This time last year Man of Steel kept it's place at the top leaving World War Z to debut in the runner up spot.

Five years ago Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen made a debut at the top knocking off The Hangover from it's debut position at the top.

Ten years ago Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban stayed at the top leaving Mean Girls to make it's debut at three with The Day After Tomorrow staying at 2.

Fifteen years ago The Matrix was refusing to shift off the top and the highest new film was Cruel Intentions at three.

Leonardo DiCaprio stars with Martin Scorsese directing in The Wolf of Wall Street which makes its home entertainment debut as the best seller this week.

The Wolf of Wall Street was released at the box office on 17th January this year where after much hype and Oscar buzz it debuted with £4.6 million at the top, it stayed there for 3 weeks.

With a total of 8 weeks on the chart it grossed just over £22 million and is the 129th highest grossing UK film and is also Martin Scoursese's top grossing film in the UK.

Last weeks top film, 12 Years a Slave, falls to 2 this week.

There were no other new film this week.

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.

Highest new film this week is a return from Hammer Horror. The film The Quiet Ones is Hammers first film since the Daniel Radcliffe hit The Woman in Black, and although being no where near as big a hot as that film still does well landing at 6 with £681,305.

Other new films on this weeks chart are:
Calvary
The Raid 2: Berabdal
Khumba a Zebras Tale
The Lunchbox

One year ago Oblivion starring Tom Cruise entered the chart at the top knocking The Croods down to second place.

Five years ago Fast and Furious hit the top spot on it's debut knocking Monsters Vs. Aliens into the runner up spot.

Ten years ago Scooby Doo 2 Monsters Unleashed held the top spot keeping 50 First Dates from debuting at 2

Fifteen years ago The Rugrats Movie spent it's 3rd week at the top while The Faculty debuted at 2.

In the US this week there was no stopping the Marvel might with audiences keeping Captain America: The Winter Soldier as the top film.

Taking $41 million for the weekend it was enough to stop the biggest new film of the week from topping.

The biggest new film of the week was Rio 2, with a weekend take of $39 million it was not quiet enough to topple Captain America but it gave it a run for it's money.

This week in the UK Rio 2 makes the big step and flies to the top of the box office chart on it's debut weekend.

It was actually quite quiet this week and Rio 2 takes the crown with a relatively small £2.9 million. The sequel to 2011's Rio, the film enters the top just as the Easter holidays start so expect it to stay for a couple of week.

Last weeks top film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier falls down to 2 this week with £2.8 million taking it's 10 day total to £10.9 million.

Other new films this week are
Noah
Divergent

Rio 2, sequel to the smash hit comedy from 2011, not Disney this time but 20th Century Fox.

Th Double stars Jesse Eisenberg as a Mr Nobody who hooks on to a new colleague that is his double but has the exact opposite personality.

This week makes it 2 in a row for DiCaprio and Scorsese as The Wolf of Wall Street retains it's hold as the top film in the country.

Taking in &pounfd;3.6 million over the weekend nothing gave it a run for it's money, the total for the film is now £10.9 million from 10 days.

Highest new film is Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit, a re-boot of the series and the fifth film to portray the character. Maybe a little disappointing the film only took £1.2 million and lands at 3.

A year ago Les Mis was still riding the wave of popularity at the top of the box office while Spielberg's Lincoln entered at 3 as the highest new film, the top 5 were all Oscar contenders.

Five years ago it was still Oscar winner Slumdog Millionaire at the top with the Tom Cruise vehicle Valkyrie landing in second place.

Ten years ago we had a new number one film, Scary Movie 3 which knocked The Return of the King from the top spot after five weeks at the top.

Fifteen years ago it was all change at the top with girl power reigning in Practical Magic knocking Little Voice from the top.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese top the charts this week as they debut their new collaboration The Wolf of Wall Street.

The film takes over at the top taking a reasonable £4,655,984 from it's opening weekend. Sliding to the runner up spot after a week at the top is fellow Oscar contender 12 years a Slave.

This time last year Les Miserables was still at the top of the chart with Django Unchained coming in as a new entry at two.

Five years ago Slumdog Millionaire was still riding the Oscar wave at the top while Will Smith debuted his latest film Seven Pounds at two.

Ten years ago The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King was still the top film in the UK with sci-fi drama Paycheck making it's debut at four.

Fifteen years ago Meet Joe Black took over the top spot at the box office on it's debut with the previous weeks top film Star trek: Insurrection falling to four.

After a couple of weeks at the top of the UK box office for Oz we now have a full change with The Croods leading the way.

Dreamworks animated comedy The Croody debuted at the top this week with £5.4 million. Last weeks top film, Oz the Great and Powerful fell to number 3, as Jack the Giant Slayer debuted in the runner up spot.

A year ago The Hunger Games made it's chart debut with a lot of hype and £4.9 million is takings. It knocked 21 Jump Street to number 2.

Five years ago there was a huge change in the chart with the whole top 4 was new, heading the pack was Horton Hears a Who! Which debuted with £2.9 million. The previous weeks top film, 10,000 BC fell to 5.

Ten years ago just Married hit the top spot, although the takings from the weekend were very low and it didn't even make $pound;1 million. The previus weeks top film, Maid in Manhattan fell to 2.

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.

This weeks UK Box Office has Les Miserables making it four weeks as the most popular film in the country, not since Avatar in 2010 has a film spent more than 3 weeks at the top.

In early figures for last weekend the Tom Hooper musical took £2.8 million taking it's total to around to £30 million mark.

The top new film landed (pun intended) at 3, Denzel Washington stars and is Oscar nominated for his portrayal of an airline pilot with a drinking problem. Flight takes £1.7 million over the weekend.

Flight is having a battle with Lincoln for 3rd place and might end up in fourth by the time final figures are counted.

This time last year Chronicle was the top film of the week and the highest new film debuting at number 1 with £2.2 million, the previous weeks top film, War Horse was knocked to 4th place.

Five years ago it was all change as well as man of the moment, director J.J. Abram's this time on production duties, took Clover field to the top on it's debut with £3.4 million.

Ten years ago Spielberg was a the top with Hanks and DiCaprio and Catch Me If You can with debuted with £3.7 million.

Fifteen years ago Titanic was on the second week of its mammoth run on the chart and took £4.7 million, there was unusually no new films at the box office this week.

This week Steven Spielberg's War Horse notches up another week at the top of the UK box office making it 3 in a row, while the highest new film is George Clooney in The Descendants at 2

Check out the top 15 box office.

This time last year Disney's Tangled debuted at the top of the charts.

Five years ago Rocky Balboa stayed at the top while Leonardo DiCaprio starred in Blood Diamond which had the highest debut at number 2

Ten years ago Vanilla Sky went straight in at number 1 on the box office finally ending The Lord of the Rings reign at the top.

Go back just over a year and the biggest film in the world (by box office gross) had been established, that film was James Cameron's Avatar, a film built from the ground up to show what 3D can achieve.

This weekend in the US Cars 2 has hit the top spot with a weekend gross of $68 million of which only 40% of that take was from 3D screening, so is the public finally realisd that 3D is just a gimmick?

If you listen to Sony they would have you believe that 3D is the future, we'll be watching all out broadcast TV and home movies in 3D, Nintendo are another company who have invested a lot of money in 3D, producing the 3DS, there is certainly no shortage of temptation for us to embrace the 3D age.

Not lets look at the numbers, Cars 2 isn't a first, King Fu Panda 2 and Rio both took more money in 2D rather than 3D, and most people who saw Pixar's top grossing film last year Toy Story 3 seemed to agree that the 3D did nothing for the film. In Japan the 3DS has been struggling, being outsold by the 7 year old PSP, a device for which the successor has already been announced and is reducing in sales.

Is there a future for 3D? Who knows at the moment, but 3D is starting to show it's colours at the cinema, the surcharge on the glasses certainly cant be helping, Sky TV are struggling with the uptake of 3D subscribers, again there is a surcharge, and gamers seem to be rejecting the notion as well.

There are a couple of high profile catalogue 3D film that have been retrofitted with 3D, the Star Wars Saga and Titanic, this may well be a test as to how the public is embracing 3D, but on current evidence we don't want it, the novelty has warn off.

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.

There was little buzz about this film other than the voice talent of Johnny Depp in the lead character role, Rango thus takes the top of the UK box office this week from another CG animated film.

Rango is the story of a lizard who winds up in the Wild West of America and you can guess what happens from there, queue many jokes based on the western genre! The film had a mediocre opening weekend in what has been a quiet week compared to recent weeks with a £1,638,613 weekend.

Runner up this week is another new entry in the shape of Matt Damon in The Adjustment Bureau, the George Nolfi directed film took £1,395,715 over the weekend.

Finishing a trio of new released at the top of the box office this week is the Liam Neeson starring Unknown. The thriller for which Neeson is starting to pigeon hole himself into is directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and took £1,356,345.

For the top 3 it was a fairly close call all-round.

Frost and Pegg are at number 4 with their Alien film Paul which has a weekend take of £1,109,766 with a total gross of £12,207,049, and getting over the hangover of the award season if The Kings Speech which is now at 3 with a weekend of £1,076,381 which brings its total now to £41,930,117. Last weeks top film, Gnomeo and Juliet, falls all the way to 6 this week, quite a drop post school holiday, but Rango is direct competition and took much of its potential this week.

Compared to last year this weeks box office is way lower, last year Tim Burtons Alice in Wonderland (3D) opened at the top of the chart with an excellent £10 million plus opening which is more than the combined top 15 this week, the rest of the top 5 last year was almost insignificant but Avatar was knocked off the top and The Crazies, The Lovely Bones and The Princess and the Frog all hang around but with diminishing returns.
