There have been many film adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs creation Tarzan and this week the latest version enters at the top of the home video chart in the UK.
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.
The sequel no one wanted in the shape of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Out of The Shadows karate chops its way to the top of the UK video chart on its debut week.
The second in the rebooted Turtles films made its UK cinema debut on the 3rd June 2016 in the runner up position, beaten to the top by Warcraft.
The film made £3.5 million on its cinematic debut, it then dropped down the chart over the following 5 weeks.
Over its cinema run in the UK it grossed a shade under £6 million, comparing it to the 2014 original its about half of the takings.
Last weeks top film, The Angry Birds Movie, falls down to number 4 this week, its second week of release.
Also new on the home video charts is Gods of Egypt, minor hit that spent 2 weeks on the box offie in June, at number 2.
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.
