Making it a trio of weeks at the top this week Wonder Woman beats again The Mummy while the top new film is Churchill at number 5.

The DC Universe from Warner Bros. really has kicked into gear now with Wonder Woman taking £1.8 million on its third weekend of release.

This puts the films total gross in the UK at £16.2 million, although last years Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice made more it was very front loaded and by this point in its run had really slowed down.

The Mummy has done better in the UK than in other territories where it sunk on the second weekend, this week its still at 2 with £1.1 million for a total of £4.9 million.

Highest new film of the week is Churchill which enters the UK box office at number 5 with £392,732.

The film starring Brian Cox and Miranda Richardson has been praised critically but as a small independent film doesnít get the reach of a high budget blockbuster and was only screened in 345 sites.

The film has done well to take this much and as is often the case with British film it is sure to hang around for many weeks to come.

Other films making their debut this weekend are Gifted starring Chris Evans and the Nick Broomfield documentary Whitney Can I Be Me at number 10.

Longest running film this weekend is The Boss Baby with 11 weeks on the chart while the top grossing movie is Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 which has now grossed £40 million in total.

Historical charts

A year ago
The Conjuring 2 The Enfield Case was the top new film making its debut at number 1 while Me Before You fell to number 2 after 2 weeks on top.

Five years ago
Prometheus retained the top slot for a third weekend while the top new film was Rock of Ages at number 4.

Ten years ago
4: Rise of The Silver Surfer topped the charts on its debut knocking Oceanís Thirteen down to number 2 after a week of release.

Fifteen years ago
Spider-Man (the original Sam Raimi version) made its debut at the top of the UK box office, it knocked Star Wars Episode II: Attack of The Clones down to number 2 after 4 weeks on top.

Twenty years ago
remaining at the top was The Fifth Element while the top new film was Whoopy Goldberg in The Associate at number 7.

Twenty five years ago
The Lawnmower Man held onto the top for a second weekend with Dolly Pardon in Straight Talk the top new film at number 4.

Tom Cruise has always been a film favourite at the UK box office having scored hit film after hit film, but his latest film The Mummy which must have seemed like a sure fire hit falls at number 2 this week.

It was a very close call in the end with The Mummy pulling in £3.3 million on its debut, if you compare this to Cruises last film Jack Reacher Never Go Back it is a million higher, but compared to his last franchise film Mission:Impossible Rogue Nation it is a couple of million shy.

Despite if this means the actor is starting to loose his sure fire hit status if you compare this The Mummy to the 1999 Brendan Fraser version of the film its about equal, and that nearly 20 years ago.

Remaining at the top for a second week, and by the thinest of margins is Wonder Woman which takes £3.4 million this weekend.

This brings the films total gross after 10 days of play to £12.8 million and well on track to be one of the highest grossing movies of the year.

Also new this week at number 5 is the Live Cinema event Take That Wonderland Live From The O2 with £1 million.

New at 6 is My Cousin Rachel while another event movie Peter Pan: NT Live 2017 is new at 11.

With Beauty and The Beast returning to the top 15 this week it becomes once again the top grossing movie with £72 million and the longest running film at 12 weeks.

The release of a new Tom Cruise film its bound to make some waves and The Mummy makes its debut at the top of the global box office this week with a $175 million opening.

Domestically (in America) the film has not gone down that well with a $32.2 million debut, but internationally the film has and takes $141.8 million, the film is opened in 64 countries this week.

Compared to previous Cruise movies this is a low take, the reviews have not been that favourable and it must be a bit worrying to Universal as this is supposed to be the first of a new universe of movies.

Wonder Woman slips to number 2 this week, still doing good business it takes $115.2 million from 58 countries which brings the Gal Gadot film to $435.2 million in global takings.

The film is still getting good word of mouth and it has really kicked the DC Universe into gear, it will be interesting to see for Justice League performs later this year.

The rest of the top 5 has Pirates of the Caribbean 5 at number 3 with $45 million, Baywatch at number 4 with $15 million and Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie at number 5 with $14 million.

Tom Cruise launches his latest vehicle this weekend in the US but it is no match for the mammoth Wonder Woman which spends a second weekend at the top.

Tom Cruise spent the early part of his career avoiding franchise films but since starring and producing the Mission:Impossible series of film he has become more seduced by the idea.

With Another Jack Reacher film released earlier this year and another Top Gun film promised Cruise here starts with The Mummy which promises to kick off a Dark Universe franchise.

The Mummy kicks off its US box office run with a number 2 debut and $32.2 million, really not the sort of business Universal were expecting, add to that bad reviews and Cruise may start worrying.

Wonder Woman holds onto the top spot this week with a $57.1 million second weekend, easily beating The Mummy, this brings the films total gross to $205 million.

Also new this week is It Comes At Night, $6 million and number 6 and Megan Leavey, new at 8 with $3.7 million.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 is this weeks longest running film with 6 weeks on the chart and the highest total grossing movie with $366 million.

After The Mummy Tom Cruise has American Made dure for release on 25th August.

Check out the trailer below.

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.

On the Uk box office this week we have the latest X-Men film taking over at the top on its debut week of release ending Captain America's 3 week run.

£7.3 million was enough to see X-Men Apocalypse reach the top of the chart, this is fairly average for an X-Men movie although it is lower than the previous entry X-Men Days of Future Past.

Interesingly the Wolverine movies have fared the same for debut grosses meaning that the average gross of a X-Men universe movie is in the £6 million region.

Last weeks top film Captain America: Civil War falls from the top quite hard to number 4 with a weekend take of £1.3 million bringing its total to £34 million.

Highest total Grossing movie on the box office this week is The Jungle Book at number 3 with £41 million.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes holds off the challenge of Hercules, The Purge Anarchy and Earth to Echo to keep the top spot at the UK box office for another week.

Now in it's second weekend of release Dawn of the Apes easily hangs on to the top spot with a weekend take of £3.7 million, this brings it's total gross to £17 million after 10 days of release.

Highest new film of the week is Dwayne Johnson in a retelling of Hercules, an all out action film rather than historical retelling of the Greek myth it's directed by Brett Ratner.

Hercules took a gross of £1.5 million on it's opening weekend, it has a long was to go to even be one of Johnson's best films as he's been part of the Fast and Furious series and The Mummy series.

Likewise Brett Ratner has been part of the X-Men series and directed the 2 Rush Hour movies, and also directed a Hannibal Lector film, all high grossing franchises.

Hercules could sink quite fast especially with some of the new releases coming in the next few weeks which will be ultimately bigger box office hits.

There are plenty of other new releases this week in the form of
The Purge Anarchy at 3
Earth to Echo at 6
Kickat 8
The House of Magic at 10

This time last year new at the top was The Wolverine based on the X-Men universe which topped on it's debut knocking Monsters University into 2nd.

Five years ago Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince was still at the top in it's second week and The Proposal with Sandra Bullock was new at 2.

Ten years ago Spider-Man 2 held onto the top spot for a second week with the highest new film being Thunderbirds at 3.

Fifteen years ago it was Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace holding onto the top spot for a second week, and with nothing daring to open up in the wake of such a big film the highest new film was Hindustan Ki Kasam at 10.

As expected this week there was no stopping Dawn of the Planet of the Apes as it very easily and without competition took to the top of the charts on it;s debut weekend.

Grossing £8.7 million from Thursday to Sunday it took more than the rest of the box office combined.

Dawn well and truly out preformed it predecessor Rise of the planet of the Apes which took £5.8 million on it's debut weekend in August 2011, it went on to gross £20.5 in total.

Dawn should go on to out-gross that film and could come close to £25 - 30 million in the UK.

Also worth a mention this weekend is two even movies that got themselves inside the top 5 on the box office chart, Monty Python Live (Mostly) made number 4 with £1.8 million which Andre Rieu took him Maastricht concert to number 5 with £830,000.

Other new film to debut this week are:
Pudsey The Dog The Movie at 7

This time last year Monsters University held on to the top spot which mean The Worlds End debuted at 2.

Five years ago Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince made it's debut at the top of the box office knocking the previous number 1, Ice Age: Dawn of The Dinosaurs, to number 2.

Ten years ago say Spider-Man 2 make it's cinematic debut at the top of the box office knocking Shrek 2 into the number 2 spot.

Fifteen years ago was an historical time in cinema as the much anticipated, and to an extent much hated, Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace made it's UK debut at the top, 2 months after it's US debut. The Mummy fell to number 2.

This week we finally see the full release of Transformers: Age of Extinction and How to Train Your Dragon 2, and predictable they dominate the upper end of the box office chart.

Taking the top spot is the 4th in the Transformers series of movies from director Michael. The film had previews last weekend and takes the number 1 position with ease this week grossing £11.7 million in the process, it is the biggest grossing opening weekend of the year so far.

It's interesting to note this opening gross does include the £8 million from last weeks preview screenings, a £3 - 4 million is a closer opening weekend figure.

Opening in second place after going on general release is How to Train Your Dragon 2 which also includes money from it's previews over the last 3 or 4 weeks.

Falling to third this week is last weeks top film Mrs. Brown's Boy's D'Movie which after 3 weeks has grossed £11.8 million.

There were a number of other new film this which included
Begin Again at 5
Boyhood at 7
Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania at 12

Last year at the box office Monsters University opened at the top of the chart knocking Despicable Me 2 into second place after 2 weeks at the top.

Five years ago Sasha Baron Cohen opened at the top with Bruno which knocked Ice Age: Dawn of The Dinosaurs to second place.

Ten years ago Shrek 2 held on tight at the top for another week keeping Around the World in 80 Days in second place for it's debut.

Fifteen years ago there was little change at the top with The Mummy retaining it's lead for a second week, highest new film was 10 Things I Hate About You at 5.

Mrs. Brown's Boys D'Movie holds on for a second week on top of the UK box office, this week with little competition from the new realises.

Brendan O'Carroll transvestite creation takes a second week gross of £2.2 million which gives it a 10 day gross (2 weekends) of £9.3 million, not bad really.

With little movement on the box office worth mentioning is How To Train Your Dragon 2, still on previews it took £475,270 over the weekend, it has now taken £1.5 million before it's official release on Friday.

Another film doing this is Transformers: Age of Extinction which had previews from Saturday evening and took £s;4.7 million and would have been the top film, this will be added to the opening gross next week so the film WILL be number 1.

Highest new film of the week is Tammy which we all had high hopes for but in the end struggled to get a top 5 entry with £471,429 over the weekend.

The only other new film this week is The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window and Disappeared at 11.

Looking back

A Year ago Despicable Me was still a the top of the UK box office keeping Now You See Me from the top meaning it debuted at 2.

Five years ago Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs was the new top film which it did on it's debut week of release.

Ten years ago number one and highest new film was Shrek 2 which knocked Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban from the top.

Fifteen years ago The Mummy was still the top film in the UK while Sean Connery was the highest new entry at 2 with Entrapment.

Twenty yeas ago the original The Flintstones movie was the top film in the country for the month of July knocking Four Weddings and a Funeral from the top.

Twenty five years ago Batman was still the top film for the month of July but Indianan Jones and the Last Crusade and Licence to Kill were doing well.

As expected the movie version of Mrs. Browns Boys took the top spot at the UK box office, and with quite a strong margin over the rest.

On it's debut weekend Mrs. Brown's Boys D'Movie took an incredible £4.3 million, far higher than expected and proving that the Irish sit-com has quite a following.

I suspect that this is a fairly front loaded event and we could see it fall quite sharply, I dont think it has the lasting appeal of movie like The Inbetweeners Movie.

Falling to the runner up spot this week is The Fault in our stars which made £1.7 million from the weekend bringing it's 10 day gross to £6.7 million.

Other new film to chart this week are:
Chef at 5
How to Train Your Drans 2 (still only on previews) at 6
Walking on Sunshine at 7
Cold in July at 11
Ek Villain at 12
Punjab 1984 at 13

This time last year Despicable Me 2 hit the top of the box office on it's debut week of release, it would go on to be the top film in the UK of 2013, it knocked Man of Steel into 2nd place.

Five years ago Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was still the top film in the UK and Year One with Jack Black was the highest new film at 3.

Ten years ago it was still Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban at the top while the top new film of the week was Tom Hanks on Lady Killers at 4.

Fifteen years ago Brendan Fraser made a big screen comeback in The Mummy which debuted at the top of the box office knocking The Matrix into the runner up spot after only a week.
