Hitting the heights of number one on its debut week of release the film was a big hit in UK cinemas when it was released on 22nd July 2016 where it hit number 1.
The film didn't last more than a week at the top, but it turned into a massive hit and had a slow fall down the box office.
In total the film spent 14 weeks on the official top 15 and then spent 4 weeks still pulling in audiences at cinemas, it was still in some cinemas on its week of release on home video.
The film made £30.5 million at the UK box office and it is currently number 99 on the list of all time UK box office hits.
It didn't do that well across the globe, its clearly a very British story, it only made $178 million which is very low for a Spielberg film.
Last weeks top film, The Secret Life of Pets, falls from the top to number 3 this weeks after only a single week at number 1.
Other new film this week are Star Trek Beyond at number 2, a number 2 hit released on 22nd July 2016 and Ghostbuster (the remake) a number 1 film from 15th July 2016.
A very quiet week at the global box office as Scully manages to top with just $45 million from 40 counties, $35 of that from America.
For such an American centric film thats not a surprise and it is still to be released in many countries, Europe is a big Hanks fan to expect a big boost when released there.
Last weeks top film Star Trek Beyond falls to number 2 with only $17 million from 41 countries with China is still doing well on its second week of release.
At number 5 Chinese film The Age Of Shadows makes its debut with $16 million, very good consider the single territory it is released in. Also new at number 7 this week is When The Bow Breaks which grosses $15 million from its US release.
Still the top grossing film on the global top 10 is The Secret Life of Pets which has now taken $789 million during its box office run.
As with last week last weeks chart a Chinese opening if a film does wonders and a $31 million opening has the film take $39 million from 40 countries for the weekend and a quiet market takes it back to the top.
The late summer has proved to be a difficult time for the box office and with little other movement the whole top 10 this week across the globe is the same as last week.
You actually have to go down to the 17th film on this weeks global box office to find a new film, The Light Between Oceans takes $5 million from 1 country.

America led the way and create just over half of the global box box office gross for the movie, the total was 110 million, far greater the last film in the series The Bourne Legacy.
This is a good start for the fifth film in the series and fourth starring Matt Damon and with positive reviews it should see the film gross some impressive numbers.
Falling from the top is Star Trek Beyond, which like its predecessor had a strong opening weekend but a heavy second frame.
The film took $37 million this week from 41 countries to bring its total gross to $160.5 million, and with much of the films gross bound to be front loaded this could mean trouble for the franchise.
Also new this week is League Of Gods at number 5 which has an impressive launch from 7 countries for a $30 million opening week.
Highest total grossing movie on the top 10 global box office this week is Finding Dory which has now taken $469 million.

In the end Roald Dahl and Steven Spielberg won with The BFG as it takes the number 1 spot on its debut weekend of release with a very respectable £5.3 million
The film was considered a flop in the US but the stories are considered classics in the UK and parents have passed down books from generation to generation and this is reflected in the box office.
Almost as much loved, and celebrating 50 years this year is Star Trek, and to celebrate we have Star Trek Beyond which this week makes its debut at 2.
A weekend take of £4.7 million wasn't enough to see it debut at the top, and even more worrying is this is half as much as Star Trek Into Darkness, and lower than the original reboot.
The positive reviews may help the path ahead but this is definitely a diminishing series and with a fourth film already planned who knows what the future holds.
Also new this week are André Rieu's 2016 Maastricht Concert which had a couple of shows this last weekend is new at 3.

Its a softer debut than Star Trek or sci-fi is used to despite good reviews and seemingly a better film then the last one but a $89.6 million debut from 38 countries is strong enough to see it dominate.
