Spider-Man joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the first time in Spider-Man Homecoming and with the help of Iron Man tops the Uk box office.

The new re-boot (the third for the franchise) stars Tom Holland and reaches the top with a £9.3 million opening weekend.

In terms of previous Spider-Man films this is fairly standard with only Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man doing far better.

Despicable Me 3 falls to second place but still manages a £5 million weekend which brings the films total gross to nearly £20 million.

With the school summer holidays fast approaching expect this film to hang around for a while.

Yet gain The Boss Baby is the longest running film of the week with 14 weeks on total on the chart and it is also the highest total grossing film with £28 million.

This version was released in cinemas on 8th July 2016 where it entered at number 2, beaten by The Secret Life of Pets on its 3rd week at the top.

The Legend of Tarzan took £3.5 million on its opening weekend and spent 5 weeks on the UK top 15, it then spent another 7 weeks in Uk cinemas before disappearing.

During that time it took a non too shabby £9.2 million, also the film didn't do too bad on the global stage taking £356.6 million.

Last weeks top film, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Out of The Shadows, falls quite hard down to number 5 this week after a single week at the top.

Also making its debut on the chart this week is: Supersonic at number 2 and Central Intelligence at number 3.

Also making a re-entry at number 4 thanks to a new version of the Blu-ray is Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

This week saw the release of a new Star Trek movie at the global box office and as with all the others in the ‘new' universe created by JJ Abrahams it is the top film globally.

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.

The legend of Tarzan is at 2 this week and is getting stronger across the globe as it has a staggered release, its not performing in the US but it is globally.

The film took $51 million from 62 countries for a total global gross of $260 million to date.

Biggest news of the week is the string debut for Skiptrace, the Jackie Chan action film had a big release in Asia and from 3 countries took $44 million on its debut.

A change at the top of the world box office charts has the Ghostbusters reboot taking over from The Secret Life of Pets.

On its debut week of release the 2016 Ghostbusters reboot takes $65.1 million dollars from just 4 countries.

An excellent result for the female led Ghostbusters movie, although good reviews have helped and the marketing push to banish the negativity has certainly helped.

The Secret Life of Pets is still doing big numbers across the globe and this week despite falling to number 2 grosses $54.9 million bringing its total gross to $253.9 from 10 countries.

Highest total grossing film on the global box office this week is Finding Dory, the Disney/Pixar movie has to date grossed $721.7 million.

The film now has a global gross of $145,772,440 but has many more territories to open in so expect that to climb.

Finding Dory is holding strong at number 2 with $50 million this week, its global gross has risen to 624.1 million from 41 countries, it is also the highest total grossing movie on the top 10.

China is one of the largest cinema going countries in the world and this week from its release in a single territory - China - Cold War 2 takes an amazing $44 million and is at number 4 this week.

  1. The Secret Life Of Pets - 110,972,440
  2. Finding Dory - $50,051,000
  3. The Legend Of Tarzan - $47,615,000

The American box office saw a massive boost this week with The Secret Life of Pets making its debut on the box office with over 100 million.

To put this in context. most Pixar films have massive opening weekend and this beat last year Inside Out which took 90 million on its debut.

The actual figure is $103 million which put it in the top 20 of the highest debut weekend of all time in America.

The film has had mediocre reviews but this doesn't seem to have harmed the debut at all, and with not much competition except the ageing Finding Dory.

Falling from the top is Finding Dory which falls to 3 this week, The LEgend of Tarzan just about holding on at 2.

Dory has now grossed $422 million in American with a $20 million take this last weekend, the film is still to be released in many other countries.

Also new this week is Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates which lands at 4 with a $16 million debut weekend.

Despite a number of new releases this week Finding Dory still manages to dominate the global box office now after 3 weeks of release.

Dory this week grossed $76.3 million globally, now released in 41 countries, this brings its total gross now over the half billion mark to $538.2 million.

There are still many countries where the film has not had a release so the film making it to billion mark is probably at this stage a certainty.

Highest new film of the week is The Legend of Tarzan which shows up in 20 countries and has a debut gross of $56.9 million.

The week had a number of new releases but with the good weather and holidays throughout the world nothing managed to capture the market, or maybe it was the lack of summer blockbuster? The rest of the new releases are as follows: The Purge Election Years at 5, The BFG at 8, Ice Age Collision Course at 9, although it must be said that these film all had single digit country release and are no where near saturation yet.

Here is the top 5 global box office for this week.

  1. Finding Dory - $76,300,542
  2. The Legend Of Tarzan - $56,935,000
  3. Independence Day Resurgence - $56,700,000
  4. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Out Of The Shadows - $31,265,000
  5. The Purge Election Year - $30,997,840
It's the weekend of Independence Day in America which has historically been a strong weekend o#for new releases as people often have a longer weekend, but this year seems reletively week.

Heading the chart for a third weekend is Disney and Pixars Finding Dory which adds another $41 million to its now impressive total.

That total in America is $372.2 million and the film is proving to be another runnaway hit for Pixar and Disney, Diney dont seem to be able to hit a duff note at the moment!

Hihgest new film of hte week lands at number 2, The Legend of Tarzan, which looking at all the promo material is more about monkeys than tarzan, not suprising with the success of the recent Apes movies.

Tarzan debuts with a weekend gross of $38.1 million, a sign of a weaker debut showing than would normally be expected over the long weekend.

Also new this week are The Purge: Election Year which debuts at number 3 and surisingly, and from Disney is Spielbergs The BFG which debuts at number 4 with less than $20 million.

Highest total grossing film on the US chart this week, and by a massive margin is Finding Dory, longest runners are The Conjuring 2 The Enfield Project and Now You See Me 2 both on 4 weeks.

This week war film Fury starring Brad Pitt takes over at the top of the UK box office on it's debut week of release.

A reasonably good weekend gross of £2.7 million sees then over take Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles after they spend just a single week at number 1.

Fury is already director David Ayer highest grossing film in the UK although for Brad Pitt it has a long way to go to beat the £25 million of Ocean's Eleven.

Fallling into second place after it's top spot debut last week, the Turtles manage to add £2 million to their gross bringing it to £7.9 after a second weekend of play.

Other new film on the top 15 this week are: The Book of Life at 4, Happy New Year at 8, Love Rosie at 9 and The Babadook at 10.

Transcendence was released in cinemas on 25th April this year, entering the box office chart at number 3 with a £1.2 million debut weekend.

After only 3 weeks on the charts it disappeared taking a UK gross of £1.9 million and became one of Depp's lowest grossing movies in recent years, world wide it took $56 million. Frozen is still inside the top 5 best selling videos, since it's release it has not left the top 5, never actually going lower than 4, that 5 months of release.

Other new video entries this week are
Tarzan (not the Disney film) at 6
Locke (starring Tom Hardy) at 8
Alien Abduction at 12

No move at the top of the box office this week for a third consecutive week give The Amazing Spider-Man 2 the top film of the week. The summer season has started.

The follow up Spider-Man film added another £2 million over the weekend bringing it's total UK gross to just why of £ 20 million.

With The Other Woman staying put at 2 the highest new film was the Paul W.S. Anderson directed Pompeii which entered at 3. Based on the historical events surrounding the Italian village Pompeii took £1.2 million over the weekend.

Other new films this week are:
Tarzan (4)
Plastic (10)
Blue Ruin (15)

This time last year there was still no moving Iron Man 3 as he spent another week at the top with the highest new film 21 and Over entering at 2.

Five years ago X-Men Origins: Wolverine debuted on the chart at the top leaving Hannah Montana The Movie to land at 2. State of Play fell from the top to 3.

Ten years ago Kill Bill Volume 2 was still riding the top slot keeping Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind from debuting at number 1, it had to settle for 2.

Fifteen years ago The Waterboy starring Adam Sandler was the new film at the top of the box office, knocking 8MM down to second place.

Twenty years ago Four Wedding and a Funeral was the big film for May with The Naked Gun 33 1/3 The Final Insult and The Crow also doing well while twenty five years ago Warlock starring Julian Sands was the big film with Mississippi Burning and Beaches also doing well.

Lots of new films this week, a couple came out on Wednesday the rest due in UK cinemas on Friday (the proper day).

Pompeii came out on Wednesday, the story of the ill fated Italian city built under Mount Vesuvius which erupted suddenly and wiped out the whole city in 79AD. Like Noah from a few weeks back this has been given the Hollywood treatment, it stars Kit Harington and Emily Browning and is directed by Paul W. S. Anderson, a top 3 opening could be on the cards.

Plastic also came out on Wednesday, a British comedy film directed by Julian Gilbey about credit card fraud. Because it's a British film expect it to enter at about 5, mage a little lower.

Brick Mansions has had a lot of hype because it is the last film Paul Walker completed before his early death last year. Interest will be high and because of this a possible top 5 entry is likely.

Tarzan is an animated CGI film which incredibly realistic looking animation. No big names and little hype, this could miss the top 10 altogether.

Out on Saturday is Bad Neighbours, Seth Rogen and Zac Efron star in this comedy about neighbours who don't quite see eye to eye, one is a family man one a college graduate. It misses out on Fridays takings but may still do well on Saturday and Sunday for a top 10 entry.
