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.

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.

Independence Day: Resurgence is the top total grossing movie on the weeks top ten global box office with $361.2 million.

Here is the global top 5.

  1. Star Trek Beyond - $89,600,000
  2. The Legend Of Tarzan - $51,130,000
  3. Ice Age: Collision Course - $51,000,000
  4. Skiptrace - $44,000,000
  5. The Secret Life Of Pets - $39,330,275
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.

Widest release of the week id Now You See Me 2 which is currently out in 78 countries although the film has only grossed $267 million.

Here is the global top 5 for this week

  1. Ghostbusters - $65,100,000
  2. The Secret Life Of Pets - $54,964,425
  3. Ice Age: Collision Course - $53,500,000
  4. Finding Dory - $47,540,000
  5. The Legend Of Tarzan - $33,120,000
A mixed bag on the UK box office this week, Monday - Friday saw The Secret Life of pets tops the charts but Absolutely Fabulous was the top film from Monday to Sunday and The legend of Tarzan is the highest new film.

The Life of Pets makes it three weeks at the top with a £3.6 million gross over the weekend, this brings the films total gross to £22.6 million.

Absolutely Fabulous The Movie, not on its second week takes £5.7 million over the whole week, just slightly better that Pets, clearly showing when the 2 different audiences go to the cinema.

Highest debut this week lands at number 2 this week in the shape of a new take on the Tarzan story, The Legend of Tarzan, the film grosses £3.5 million.

Also new this week: Now You See Me 2 lands at number 3, Indian film Sultan has the best debut ever for an Indian film at number 6 with just over a million pound and The Neon Demon lands at 9.

Highest total grossing movie on the box office if The Secret Life of Pets and the longest run on the chart is Me Before You now on 6 weeks.

Despite competition from a number of other films on the top 5 The Secret Life of Pets managed to take another $110 million from 10 territories over the week.

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.

Also just as impressive is the Chinese animated film at number 6 this week - Big Fish & Chinese Flowering Crabapple - a $32 million gross from just 1 country.

Here is the top 5 global grossing films 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
  4. Cold War 2 - $44,165,500
  5. Ice Age: Collision Course - $32,200,000
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
