M. Night Shyamalan returned to winning ways at the US box office this weekend back on familiar territory with a suspense thriller with a twist. Director M. Night Shyamalan has had an interesting career, taking the cinema by storm with 1999's The Sixth Sense and then after another couple of hits produced some really bad studio films.

This week he's back on form with Split and after some good reviews and star James McAvoy dominating the trailers the film makes its debut with $40 million at the US box office.

Falling to number 3 this week is Hidden Figures which takes $16 million this weekend which brings its total to $84 million after 5 weeks of release.

The film could have a bounce back at some point if it performs well at the Oscars in a months time.

Also new this week is xXx: Return of Xander Cage making its debut at number 2 with $20 million and The Founder new at 9 with $3.7 million.

In an unusual event for the box office charts and old favourite returns to the top of the box office, Disney/Pixars Finding Dory replaces Suicide Squad after 4 weeks of release.

We are coming to the end of the School holidays in the UK and its a time when a lot of families are back from their time away so its perhaps no suprise that the box kids film of the moment returns to the top.

A fantastic 4th weekend gross of £2.8 million takes the total gross to £32.3 million, this puts the film on a level with the original Finding Nemo.

Falling into second place is 2 week champion Suicide Squad, a £2.5 million weekend brings the total gross to an fantastic £27.6 million.

This puts the DC anti-hero film ahead of the DC superhero film Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice from earlier in the year.

Highest new film of the week is a British institution making its debut, David Brent Life On The Road, and although it hasn't done nearly as well as Absolutely Fabulous The Movie from this year is debuts at 3 with £1.4 million.

The Office was such a big hit from over10 years ago, was of its time, and is still loved its a challenge to get that feeling back, and this only looks at one of the characters so it could sink fast.

The Secret Life of Pets is still the top total grossing movie of the week with £33.7 million and the longest running film with 9 weeks.

Interesting note this week, if the chart were calculated from the full weeks taking it would have been a very different picture, Suicide Squad would have retained the top, The BFG would have been 3rd and David Brent Life on the Road would have been 6th

Taking £5.3 million over the weekend Mission:Impossible Rogue Nation continues the run started way back in 1996, every Mission:Impossible film has debuted at the top.

In comparison hasn't done as well as the £8 million plus of the first and fourth film but is on a par with the others all in the £5 million range.

Falling into second place this week is Inside Out after a single week at the top, although it's not bad news for the Pixar film, it took and incredible £9 million is mid week taking and would by far have been the biggest film is it took Monday to Sunday figures into account.

As with the rest of the world Jurassic World took the Uk box office by storm over the weekend just gone and scored a huge debut.

Taking over the number 1 spot with ease with a £19 million opening it makes Jurassic World the 6th highest opening ever in the UK.

Jurassic World's predecessor from 2001, Jurassic Park III, only manage £4 million on its opening weekend, in fact it only took £18.3 million on it's entire run, World has beaten it already.

The Lost World: Jurassic Park, the second film in the series, did better with a £8.4 million opening and £30.5 million total gross while Jurassic Park took a total of £47 million, World could beat all these.

The biggest selling video of the year is staying put at the top of the video chart this week, for a second week, although it is it's fourth time there.

It's also having a resurgence at the box office in the sing along version, hundreds of kids belting Let It Go at the top of their voices, a must for any parent!

Highest new film of the week is right down at Seven, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For makes a soft entry on it's debut week.

The sequel to the 2005 film, Sin City, was released on 29th August this year and had a very soft entry at 4 with just over £1 million in weekend takings.

The film fell to 12 the following week and then left the box office after just 2 weeks of release, it took only £1.6 million on it;s whole run.

With Christmas just round the corner no big new releases to mention except for Into The Storm which enters at number 20.

Despite it being Halloween new horror film Ouija could not make it's way to the top of the UK box office and instead the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles went back to the top in their third week of release.

Taking nearly £1.5 million for the weekend the Turtles have now spent 3 weeks on release and have taken a total of £11.7 million. The return of the Turtles for a new generation has been a massive success and has so far taken $434.5 million across the world.

Highest new film this week is Ouija which has taken £1.4 million, arguably because of the Halloween weekend and people looking for a fright, the film could disappear quite quickly.

Last weeks top film, Fury, falls to number 3 this week with £1.2 million. It was in reality a very tight top 3 this week with only about £200,000 separating the top films.

Thor: The Dark World took the top spot on it's opening weekend knocking Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 into the runner up spot.

In the wake of his death the documentary about Michael Jacksons concerts that never happend This Is It took the top spot knocking Pixars Up down the two.

Shark Tale hung onto the top spot for a second week with the highest new film coming in at 4 in the shape of Finding Neverland.

Fifteen years ago
Halloween took the box office by storm with The Blair Witch Project climbing to the top spot on it's second week of release, the highest new film was Vampires right down in seventh place.

At the UK box office this week Luc Besson's directed Lucy about a woman using 100% of her brain takes over at the top.

Starring Scarlett Johansson Lucy tops the box office on it's debut week of release with a weekend gross of £3.07 million.

Compared to Luc Bessons previous films this is by far the best opening he has had, Arthur and the Invisibles is his highest grossing British release which took just over a million on it's release in 2007.

Scarlett Johansson is part of the Marvel Avengers universe so has seen some astronomical releases over the past few years and so it's a little unfair to compare!

Falling into second place is last weeks top film The Inbetweeners 2 which has now grossed £27.6 million after 3 weeks of release.

There is a few other new entries this week which are
Into the Storm at 4 Deliver Us From Evil at 5
What if at 6

Doctor Who: Deep Breath at 8, from a single day special showing on Saturday
Two Days, One Night at 14

Last year Matt Damon was starring in Elysium which entered at the top of the box office knocking Kick-Ass 2 right down to 7.

Five years ago Inglourious Basterds was the new top film in the UK knocking The Time Travers Wife down to the runner up spot.

Ten years ago M. Night Shyamalan released The Village which hit the top spot on it's debut with The Bourne Supremacy falling a single place to number 2.

Fifteen years ago Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace reclaimed the top spot knocking Austin Powers The Spy Who Shagged me to number 2, highest new film was Micky Blue Eys at 3.

With very little in the way of new films this weekend the Daniel Radcliffe starring What If seems to have the biggest potential with Lucy and Into The Storm also on release. The former Harry Potter star has really built up a following since his days as the boy wizard and he has had big success outside the series with The Woman in Black.

A fairly simple love story What If should see a top 5 entry, especially for the Potter fans wanting to see how Radcliffe does as a romantic lead.

Possibly out to spoil What If's party is Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson and directed by Luc Besson, the French director who brought us Le Femme Nikita and Leon.

With a top hollywood star, Morgan Freeman in for good measure and good pre-word this could easily out perform What If this weekend.

Into The Storm is also out, but no star appeal and a tried and tested them of weather elements gone wrong this should limp into the top 10.

Also worth a mention is Doctor Who, a special event screening of the first episode of the new series is happening on Saturday night, the previous Doctor Who event screen took Day of the Doctor to number 3 with £1.8 million.

The top 2 films of The Inbetweeners 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy should stay in place but maybe there will be a swap around with Guardians going back to the top?

Come back next week to find out the final weekend results.

14 years after their first appearance on the big screen the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are back and dominating the box office.

In a surprise move the Turtles stormed the box office beating expectation and knocking last weeks top film Guardians of the Galaxy from the top spot.

The Turtles took a $65 million (including Thursday night previews) over it's debut weekend, making it one of the biggest August debuts, it's a boon a good year for August debuts with Guardians breaking the record last week.

Guardians of the Galaxy fell to number 2 this week, taking $42 million for the weekend it has not made $176 million in the US after 2 weeks of release.

Also hitting the US box office are:
Into The Storm - number 3 with $18 million
The Hundred-Foot Journey - at number 4 with $11 million
Step up 5 All In - number 6 with $6.5 million

Another slow week at the UK box office as the British bask in the summer sun which resulted in small box office takings and Monsters University retaining the top spot.

10 days on release and a second weekend as the number one film in Great Britain Monsters University takes £2.7 million pushing it's total UK gross to £8.6 million.

Highest new film of the weekend is The Worlds End, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost on a bender that sees the world end, directed by long time collaborator Edgar Wright.

The Worlds end took £2.1 million at the box office, much lower that I would have expected for an anticipated film, but like last weekend the weather has clearly kept people outside.

In accordance with my expectations The Worlds End didn't take the top spot from Monsters University, it was way off by nearly £700,000 and also the box office taking stayed quite stagnant, although with the summer holidays now upon us next week could be different.

Last year at this time The Dark Knight Rises took the box office by storm taking £14.3 million on it's opening weekend, knocking Ice Age Continental Drift from the top and also becoming the highest new film of the week.

Five years ago Mamma Mia was still at the top slowly raking in the money, and also keeping Wall-E from debuting at the top, the Pixar film has to settle for number 2.

Ten years ago The Hulk starring Eric Bana and directed by Ang Lee debuted at the top knocking Charlie's Angels Full Throttle down to number 3.

Fifteen years ago Godzilla took the top spot on it's debut weekend from Six Days Seven Knights.

With the announcement that Disney would release films within the Star Wars Universe based around specific characters, 25thframe.co.uk has asked which loved characters would make the best films? Here are some ideas, but let me know which characters youd like to see in their own film.

The initial news was that the first film would be based on Yoda. One option for a film would be around his time on Dagoba between Episode III and Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, but he spent many years alone here so not sure how much excitement there is there! More interesting would be a movie based nearly 900 years into the Star Wars past explaining where Yoda came from, and maybe how he became the Jedi Master.

The latest news suggest that the first film will be based on Han Solo, another fan favourite, and one were all keen to see, How did Han meet Chewbacca, we think it was some time after Episode III, but clearly before Star Wars. When did he get the Millennium Falcon, this would have to include Lando Calrissian as the Falcon once belonged to him, and when did Solo do the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs?

Bobba Fett is another character that fans simply want to know more about, we know so little, he has very brief appearances in Empire and Jedi, the film in which he is killed, despite which he became one of the most popular characters, but is a major character in Episode II. We see him as a child and see his dad get killed by the Jedi's, we also know that the Clone Troopers/Storm Troopers are him.

Biggs Darklighter would make an interesting charter to base a film on, he appears on Star Wars and is killed during the batttle, and he appears on one of the more famous cut scenes from that film. There is a whole life on Tattooine to explore, and of course a very close friendship with Luke Sykwalker.

In Star Wars we see Darth Vadar's boss (of sorts) on the Death Star as Grand Moff Tarkin, he must have an interesting back story, what made him so evil, how did he get to commmand the Death Star and the Imperial Outland Regions? We know when he died what what are this vaguely Hitler like characters origins?

The back story of Jabba the Hutt has also been touted as future film, he's a resident of Tatooine and is over 800 years old, he runs a crime organisation that hires bounty hunters and is clearly rich and buys respect. A Godfather type story could be a must for this.

Admiral Ackbar has despite only a brief appearence in Return of the Jedi become a very popular character, he has appeared in The Clone Wars cartoon which has given some insight to his character, but going through his academy days would be an interesting film.

Superheroes took the world by storm in 2012 with The Avengers (Avengers Assemble to us UK folk) taking the title of top grossing film across the world with a gross income of $1,514,279,547.

The runner up was another super hero movie, this time in the form of Batman in The Dark Knight Rises with took $1,078,930,642 globally.

Next up is the top British film of all time as Bond has his best film at the world box office ever and took $983,900,000 in 2012 with Skyfall.

Ice Age: Continental Drift took $877,111,391 making it the fourth best film of the year and the fifth best film is The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 with $794,805,734.

It wouldn't be right to mention 2012 with thinking of The Hobbit: Am Unexpected Journey which has to date taken $686,703,000, and will probably end up near the $1 billion mark making it one of the top film released in 2012 although much of that will be taken in 2013.

Disney are causing a bit of a storm with cinema distributors because they want to release the forthcoming Tim Burton adaptation of Alice in Wonderland on DVD/Blu-ray only 13 weeks (about 3 months) after it hits the cinemas in the UK and Netherlands.

The usual window is between 4 and 6 months depending on the film, and as Alice in Wonderland is expected to be a big hit it will most likely be 6 months which would give the multiplexes more time to make money, so chains like Vue Entertainment Ltd are threatening to pull the film altogether.

Is this window too short? The cinema's argument is that this will reduce the number of bums on seats in theatres as the cinema goes will be aware they can buy the film soon and hence reduce the money taken for a film at the box office, which also could have a knock on effect on cinema ticket prices for all.

10 years ago the window was 6 months or more, and there was a time when the window was even up to a year, although the market back then was more leaned towards the rental market and the internet was not about, hence no digital downloads, and piracy although an issue wasn't by any means as big as it is now.

Why then does the likes of Disney want such a short window? Is it to tackle piracy? Is it to cash in on the hype of a film in such a fickle here today gone tomorrow market? Or is it simply that home cinema can fulfill the movie goers as readily as an expensive visit to the cinema these days?

Just think if Avatar has a 13 week window it would be scheduled for release around 15th March during a time which it will surely be still riding high at the cinema, or maybe that would be the best time to release it?

I can see the argument for and against this, but I must admit that I did prefer it in the days when you were unable to watch a film for a period of months after leaving the cinema and then enjoy it even more when the VHS of the film was available for rent.
