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.

  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
This weekend the video game adaptation Warcraft is the top film for the weekend, but Alice Through The Looking Glass is the top film over the week.

Opening on Friday Warcraft took £3.6 million from the 3 days making it the top film over that period.

The Duncan Jones directed film in fact only just made it to the top as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Out of The Shadows was a very close debut at number 2 with £3.4 million.

Alice Through The Looking Glass which debuted at number 2 last week falls to number 4 this week with £1.3 million but over the week Monday - Sunday it grossed £4.7 million, higher than any other film.

Last weeks top film X-Men Apocalypse falls to number 5 this week with £1.2 million for the weekend and £15.8 million in total after 3 weeks.

Longest stay on this weeks chart is Zootopia which has been around for 10 week while the highest total grossing film on the chart is The Jungle Book which has taken £44.5 million over 8 weeks.

There is still life in old franchises as Paramount prove this week with the release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Out of the Shadows.

Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird created the mutant turtles is 1984 with the first film appearing in 1990 and this is the 6th film to bear the name although it has been rebooted a couple of times.

26 years then after their first appearance they climb to the top of the US box office with their latest film and sequel to the 2014 film.

A $35 million weekend sees it easily dislodge X-Men Apocalypse which falls from the top to number 2 after a 2 week stay.

Also new this week in America us Me Before You which enters at number 3 and Popstar Never Stop Never Stopping which is new at 8.

Top total grossing film in the US at the moment is Captain America: Civil War with $389 million and longest stay on the chart is 8 weeks from The Jungle Book.

A third week at the top for The Hunger Games: Mockingly Part 2 in the wake of little in the way of new releases in the UK.

The box office is on hold at the moment waiting for one of the biggest releases of the year which left room for Mockingly to make £2.2 million.

This brings the total UK gross for the last of The Hunger Games films to £23.3 million after 3 weeks of release.

Highest new film of the week is Christmas with the Coopers, an all American movie about family meeting up for the holiday season.

A very low debut gross of nearly £700,000 puts the film at number 5, little chance of this film having longevity at the box office though.

Highest total grossing film on the box office is Spectre which has to date grossed over £90 million and this week is at number 3.

The last of The Hunger Games films adds £4.5 million on its second weekend of release which brings its total to £19.3 million after 10 days of release.

The film is almost mirroring the take of the second and third film in the series and will most likely end up grossing somewhere is the region of £30 million which is the same as part 1.

Highest new film of the week is The Good Dinosaur at number 2, the new film from Pixar takes a debut gross of £2.9 million, not quite but certainly one of the lowest gross from a Pixar film.

Highest total grossing film on the Uk box office this week is Spectre which after 5 weeks has grossed £88.3 million.

Home Alone stayed at the top while Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (the original version) entered at number 2.

Last weekend on the UK box office the latest Bond film Spectre was far too strong during its second week of release to be knocked from the top.

Still pulling in the audiences during its second weekend Spectre scores £13 million which brings its total UK gross after 2 weekends of release to £64 million.

The film is still on track with the previous Bond movie Skyfall and could potentially give the film a run for its money as the top grossing UK film ever, despite less favourable reviews.

Although by Sunday Spectre has not quite become the top UK film of 2015 by Monday night it will have out grossed Jurassic World.

Highest new film of the week is the low budget Brooklyn which enters the UK box office at number 3 with a debut gross of £1.04 million.

Its been an interesting week in the UK with the release of the latest James Bond movie Spectre, most unusual of all is that the film got its release after its UK premiere on Monday night rather than the usual Friday.

This opening meant that its weekend figures, although fantastic, were not a true reflection of the usual take on a debut weekend.

To cut a long story short Spectre has done amazingly well, it has the largest UK opening of any film, beating Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban 10 year record by nearly double, it also has the biggest single day gross for any film in the UK, Tuesday and in fact Wednesday.

The films weekly take, from its opening on Monday through to Sunday was £41.3 million, not only the highest ever but also higher than the previous Bond outing Skyfall, which is the highest grossing film ever in the UK.

Its Friday to Sunday total is just shy of £20 million which puts it just behind Skyfall, but that film opened on a Friday, its hard not to believe that Spectre wouldn't have beaten all these figure had it opened on the traditional Friday.

Spectre thus makes its debut at the top of the UK box office with an incredible weekly gross and with no film daring to compete with it, it is also the only new entry on the box office this week, and with very few new film in the coming weeks it will stay a while.

All thats left now is for it to become the top grossing film ever in the UK, it needs over £102 million to achieve this, but with the debut it is entirely possible.
