This third and reported last of the Wolverine stand alone movies makes its US box office debut at the top this weekend with a fantastic $85 million.

The Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart starring film has got excellent reviews across the board for its daring move away from the traditional super hero movie and has benefited in the process.

For an R rated movie it is the fourth highest opening in the US ever and most likely will go on to be the highest grossing stand alone Wolverine movie.

Falling down to 2 this week, but still holing its own is last week top film Get Out which takes $26.1 on its second weekend of release.

The little known horror film has now taken $76 million after 10 days of release in the US.

Also new this week is The Shack which is at 3 with $16 million and Before I Fall which is at 5 with $5 million.

Longest running film on the US box office is La La Land which has now been around for 13 weeks and the highest total grossing is Hidden Figures with $158 million.

Mention must go to Moonlight which after the Oscar fiasco with La La Land this week goes national and increases its gross by 260%, this week it is at 12 with $2.5 million.

M. Night Shyamalan must be pleased to be back in favour again, a fantastic start to his career and apart from a couple of bad moments he’s had a critic bashed run of films until now.

Split spends its third consecutive weekend at the top of the US box office although hit was the Super Bowl weekend which means Sunday had little to no impact on the box office.

This weekend the film took $14.6 million which brings its total gross to $98.7 million, it will reach $100 million before next weekend.

Highest new film of the weekend is the reboot of the gone stale Rings franchise, the last film was The Ring Two released in 2005.

The new take brings the film up to date and takes $13 million on its opening weekend of release, 14 years after The Ring this is a lower opening gross which doesn’t bode well for the film.

Highest total grossing film on the US top 10 this week is Sing, at number 7 this week with $262 million in total gross.

On the US box office charts this week the bad guys of Suicide Squad managed to stay at the top despite competition from Disneys Petes Dragon and Sausage Party.

Proving to be a success for the DC Cinema Universe (and Warner Bros.) the super anti-hero film takes $43.7 million on its second weekend of release, down nearly 75% from its debut.

The film has now taken $222 million in 10 days and is on course to be one of the bigger film of the year.

Entering the chart highest, and in second place, is the Seth Rogans voiced Sausage Party, an adult animation which also starts the voices of Kristen Wiig and Jonah Hill.

With a debut of $34 million its not quite Disney but for an R rated cartoon its a very good debut.

Talking of Disney they unleashed their 2016 remake/retelling of Petes Dragon this week and it perhaps hasn't quite done the numbers expected.

Landing at number 3 the film takes $21 million, considering the talent involved and the advertising a higher debut would have been expected.

Florence Foster Jenkins starring Meryl Street is also new at 8.

There was just one major release this week there which basically means there was inevitably going to be a new film making its debut at the top, and as predicted Warner Bros. Suicide Squad does just that.

Continuing the DC Cinematic Universe that was started in Man of Steel and Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice this film does something the Marvel/Disney have not yet dared, put the bad guys front and centre.

And audiences have lapped this up with Suicide Squad topping the UK box office with an excellent £11.2 million, nearly as big as the much more anticipated Batman V Superman from March.

That superhero movie sank quickly at the box office so we'll be watching things closely to see if it does similar.

Worth noting is that if the chart listing was taken over the whole week then Finding Dory would sit at the top with £12 million.

Highest total grossing on this weeks top 10 is The Secret Life of Pets which has now grossed over £32 million, while longest stay on the box office is The Angry Birds Movie with 11 weeks.

Twenty five years ago
Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves was at top for another week while the top new film came in at number 2 in the shape of Backdraft.

Although it had quite a drop in its weekend takings Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice managed to retain its hold on the top of the US box office for a second week.

The superhero mash up took $52 million during its second weekend of release to bring its total to $261 million, not a bad total but it won't be going anywhere near the Marvel super hero films.

Highest new film of the week is Gods Not Dead 2, a sequel to the 2014 film which was a bit of a suprise hit, although this sequel will not gross naywhere near the originals total.

Top total grossing film on the US box office this week is Deadpool which after 8 weeks of release has now grossed $355 million.

In what is a quiet week compared to recent weeks Jack Black takes his latest film Goosebumps to the top of the UK box office beating Dads Army in the process.

The children's fantasy film enters at the top of the box office on its debut with £2.7 million pound which is low for both star Jack Black and director Rob Letterman.

Black has his next film Kung Fu Panda 3 about to be released in the UK which will most likely debut much higher and be a bigger hit.

British favourite Dads Army gets a big screen remake this week and enters the box office at number 2 with just over £2 million.

The World War 2 film starring Toby Jones and Catherine Zeta Jones, as well as a whole host of British talent, has maybe performed below expectations but will most likely hang around for a fair few weeks.

Last week top film, The Revenant, fall to number 3 this week after 3 weeks at the top, but with Oscar just round the corner there could be a resurgent later in February.

Highest total grossing film on the box office is Star Wars: The Force Awakens which has now taken an incredible $120 million in the UK and is at number 6 this week.

From Disney/Marvel is the the plot synopsis for Avengers Age of Ultron which is released in the UK on 25th April 2015.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Marvel Studios presents "Avengers: Age of Ultron," the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth's Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.

At UK cinemas this weekend it's mad scientists messing with the fabric of humanity verses women out for revenge.

Johnny Depp stars in Transcendence, a technology gone mad tale of a scientist trying to create a super human being and experimenting on himself. This will have a hard time against The Amazing Spider-Man 2 but it will chart in the top 5.

Cameron Diaz stars in The Other Woman, the three woman in a mans life, wife and 2 mistresses meet they plot to get their revenge on the man. The Love Punch charted low this week which demands a similar audience, but Diaz is a box office puller so this could go low top 5.

Come back next week to find out where they landed on the Uk box office chart.

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.

Among all the award glory that The Kings Speech is gaining it has also managed to retain it's top on the UK box office this week with a weekend gross of £4,401,926 which is higher than last week but the film was being shown in more theaters.

It's a certainty that the film will continue to gross in large numbers with the seemingly continuous awards being beset upon the film, a Golden Globe is in the bag, a number of BAFTA's are sure to follow and Oscar is definitely knocking on the door.

After 10 days of release the film has taken a total gross of £10,759,019. New this week at 2 is Green Hornet, the latest in a long run and continuing run of high budget super hero movies. Starring Seth Rogen, Jay Chou and Cameron Diaz Green Hornet took £1,878,905 over the weekend.

Falling a single place to three this week is Danny Boyles true life drama 127 Hours which grossed £1,342,432 increasing it's total for 10 days to £4,367,411, a little less than maybe would have been expected but this is no Slumdog!

The last 2 place on the top 5 are taken by Christmas hold over movies Gulliver's Travels and Little Fockers which take £1,252,107 and £1,224,667 respectively over the weekend.

The box office this week is down on this time last year where Avatar and Sherlock Holmes were still taking good money at the box office, although for ticket sales Avatar is in line with The Kings Speech due to the 3D tax for the Cameron extravaganza.

I just checked out the new Iron Man 2 trailer, and for a film that I thought was going to be another Iron Man, this is actually looking good.

The first film although fun was basically just another super hero movie that ticked all the right boxes. The inevitable sequel was to follow after the amount of money it made and as always with sequels the ante had to be upped.

Bring in Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow for a bit of glamour and Mickey Rourke as the bad guy and suddenly things are starting to look a whole lot better.

The second trailer for the film shows a lot of promise, Mickey Rourke's Whiplash is quite wonderfully shown off in the trailer and there is just enough of Scarlett Johansson to seriously whet the appetite.

And this is ignoring the fact that there is also glimpses of Samuel L. Jackson which is always enough to make a trailer worth watching.
