Across the globe this week Spider-Man Homecoming makes its debut at the top with a global gross of $257 million from 57 countries.

The first Spider-Man film to be released into the MCU the film also stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man which seems to have broadened the appeal of the film.

The film did well in the US taking $117 million but took $140 million on the international markets with South Korea leading the way.

Despicable Me 3 fell from the top to number 2 this week with $172.9 million from 61 countries, this brings the film total global gross to $447.5 million.

Wonder Woman is at number 4 this week and is the highest total grossing film globally, it has now grossed $745 million and is still showing in 65 countries.

Worth a mention if The House That Never Dies II, only released in 1 country it sits at number 6 this week with $14 million.

Cars 3 this week falls to number 8, with a total gross of $193 million globally it could well end up as the lowest grossing Pixar movie to date.

At the global box office this week Bridget Jones's Baby out grossed everything else in its path to become the top grossing global film of the week. Released in 40 countries the film easily tok over the top spot, although interestingly the leading country for grosses was the UK and not as is often the case America.

Falling from the top is Sully which enjoyed a healthy second week of release , still in 45 countries it took $29 million over the week and is not just below $100 million globally.

Worth of mention is The Age of Shadows which was the highest debuting film last week, still only out in South Korea and climbs to number 3 this week globally with $21.5 million.

Also doing well and at number 4 is A Chinese Odyssey Part Three: The End, released in 2 countries it is new at 4 with $17.3 million.

Top total grossing film on the global box office this week is once again The Secret Life of Pets, this week at number 8 with a global gross of $804 million.

At the world box office this week Fantastic Four tried its best to be the top film of the week but very poor reviews meant it made its debut at 2 keeping Mission:Impossible Rogue Nation at the top.

Rogue Nation took $94 million across the globe last week from 59 countries and to date has made $265.3 million in global takings.

Criticised from almost all critics the re-imaged Fantastic Four film could inly muster up $60.3 million from 44 countries, one of the lowest ever openings from a superhero movie.

Top grossing film on the list this week is Jurassic World which has taken an incredible $1.5 billion during its cinema run and the demand for the film still has it released in 64 countries.

Most impressive feat of the week is South Korean movie Veteran at number 7 with $15.2 million in global taking from just 1 country.

Here is the full global top 10.

  1. Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation - $94,900,000
  2. Fantastic Four - $60,300,000
  3. Minions - $25,570,280
  4. Jurassic World - $17,030,000
  5. Ant-Man - $17,026,000
  6. Monster Hunt - $16,400,000
  7. Veteran - $15,200,000
  8. Pixels - $14,630,000
  9. Inside Out - $13,489,000
  10. The Gift - $12,909,000
The Boxtrolls hit the number 1 spot at the UK box office this week, but it had a little help from previews screenings the previous week.

In a similar vein to Bad Neighbours from earlier in the year, The Boxtrolls' official gross for the weekend is £2 million, but £600,000 was achieved with the previous weeks previews.

A £1.6 million weekend would have still seen it at the top but with a much reduced opening, last weeks top film, Lucy falls to second place £811,936, still £800,000 behind.

Regardless of how figures are worked out it was still a very quiet weekend at UK cinemas, only one film over a million and film number 15 under £100,000.

With no major blockbuster out this week either, we might see a similar picture this time next week.

Historical box office.

This time last year things looked far better at the box office, Insidious Chapter 2 topped the box office knocking About Time down to 4th, Rush and White House Down also debuting at 2 and 3.

Five years ago District 13 was still at the top while the highest new film was Dorian Gray which entered at 3.

Ten years ago low budget factual drama Open Water took over at the top of the chart, The Terminal few from 1 to 2 on it;s second week of release.

Fifteen years ago Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman starred in Stanley Kubrick final film before his death which entered at the top knocking South Park Bigger Longer and Uncut from the top.

After 2 weeks at the top Lucy gets knocked down the chart by Sex Tape which makes it's debut in the Uk at number 1.

Starring Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel this Jake Kasdan directed comedy about a couple trying to spice up their sex life by making a movie, which then gets shared to everyone debuts with £1.4 million.

Not a great opening gross especially for the 2 leads, Diaz has enjoyed great success with the Shrek franchise while Segel has seen big grosses with the likes of The Muppets, Gullivers Travels and Knocked Up.

Lucy has been having a great cinema run and after 3 weeks of release has taken a very respectable £10.46 million.

Also new this week is

Before I go to Sleep at 3
The Hundred Foot Journey at 4
The Guest at 8

Chart History
One year ago this week Richard Curtis's About Time made it's debut at the top of the box office knocking the One Direction boys to 3rd.

Five years ago District 9 was the debut film for Neill Blomkamp and it debuted at the top knocking The Final Destination into second.

Ten years ago Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks team up agin to debut the Terminal at the top knocking Dodgeball to second place.

Fifteen years ago so a very static box office with South Park Bigger Louder and Uncut staying at the top while the top new film was Go right down at six.

Finally twenty years ago this month Speed and Forest Gump where the big film at the box office while twenty five years ago Dead Poets Society and Young Einstein were the big grossing films of September.

The UK movie goer this week kept Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson in the top position with a number of weaker new releases in the market.

The Luc Besson directed film took just under £2 million during it's second weekend of release and now sits with a total gross of £8 million.

Highest new entry of the week is the buddy cop comedy Lets Be Cops starring Damon Wayans Jr., as you'd expect from a film of this kind it's a slap stick comedy.

Lets Be Cops takes £1.6 million for the weekend, but I suspect it may sink and disappear from the box office quickly.

Other new films to hit the box office this week are
Sin City A Dame To Kill For at 4 (with previews grosses)
If I Stay at 6 - the new Daniel Radcliffe so maybe a little disappointing
As Above so Below at 8
Million Dollar Arm at 15

A year ago this week One Direction This is Us took the top slot on it's debut weekend of release pushing Elysium to 2.

Five years ago The Final Destination took the top of the box office on it's first weekend taking over from Inglourious Basterds.

Ten years ago Dodgeball entered the chart at the top and knocked The Village down to 2 after it's single week at the top.

Fifteen years ago Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace was toppled from the top of the box office by South Park: Bigger Longer and Uncut on it's debut.

Four main new releases should battle for attention at cinemas in the UK this weekend with Matt Damon and Jodie Foster leading the way but Jennifer Anniston not too far behind.

From the director Neill Blomkamp who brought us the critically acclaimed South African film District 9 back in 2009 comes his follow up. This time he hits Hollywood getting Damon and Foster involved.

The film has been received well by critics and Blomkamp has again used sci-fi to “hide” a political message.

I expect Elysium to debut at the top of the box office over the weekend with nothing else to challenge, expect a debut in the region of £4 million.

Were the Millers starring Jennifer Anniston will challenge Elysium for the top spot. The wacky comedy has had surprisingly good reviews especially for Aniston.

The friends actress is always a big pull in the UK but the film doesn't have the special effects spectacle that will wow on the big screen, I expect a debut in the region of £2 million and probably debut at 2.

Also out this week is The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones have which will probably do better than I'm expect, becoming a teen favourite and having a cult following this will appeal to the Harry Potter and Twilight audience and could do big numbers, I'm expecting somewhere around the £1 million mark and a top 5 entry. Finally this week is Lovelace, starring Amanda Seyfried as fames 70's porn actress Linda Lovelace. Lovelace will debut in the top 10 but I'm expecting under a £1 million debut.

It's the time of year again when the Oscar hype machine will go into overdrive in the period between the nominations being announced and the ceremony itself.

This year there are two films which are ahead of the rest, and two films which are total contrasts in style. James Cameron has continued to astound everyone by getting a nomination for best picture and best director, and his film Avatar has managed nine nomination in total with the others being in the technical department.

Kathryn Bigelow's (who happens to be Camerons ex-wife) The Hurt Locker has also managed nine nominations, best picture and best director being two of then, the picture has also got a nomination for it's star Jeremy Renner as a leading actor.

The best picture category this year include 10 films (is that too many) so we have the likes of The Blind Side and Inglourious Basterds along side British hopeful An Education as well as South African sci-fi film District 9, and a first in that Up is nominated for best film and best animated film.

Best film and director is going to be a battle between Cameron and Bigelow, but the rest of the awards are an open field, so lets wait and see what heppens on March 7th at the 82nd Academy Awards Ceremony.

It's not often that I take much notice of the Star Wars fan email that I get in my inbox on regular occasions these days, and usually wants to sell me something, but this time something caught my attention, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back is about to be 30 years old!

Now apart from the sudden terror that I had of, how old does that make me, the email details the fact that this past weekend is the 30th anniversary of the screening of first images from the film in the form of a trailer.

I clicked the link and watched the trailer, first of all you start to realise how much cinema has changed in 30 years, and trailers certainly have a different job these days, but 2 things happened to me, first I thought about how people must have been amazed sitting in the cinema watching this, the trailer was attached to a re-release of Star Wars (something which rarely happens these days) and not only was this the only way could have got to see the trailer, no internet back then, and home video was for the rich, but the trailer was there to give people a taste of the movie, not market the film to the hilt.

The second thing that happened was I remembered when I first saw footage of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, a UK programme called The South Bank Show had done a special on Star Wars and at the very end they showed a quite long clip of the film. To note is the fact hat back on those days there was a quite lengthy gap between a film being released in the UK and America.

For a moment on Saturday it was a good trip down memory lane, so check out this link and enjoy the trailer of The Empire Strikes Back.
