The last in the trilogy of Planet of The Apes prequel movies opens at the top of the Uk box office this week knocking Spider-Man Homecoming off after just a single week.

War For The Planet of The Apes which stars Woody Harrelson and Any Serkis hits the top with a weekend gross of £7.1 million, a very good gross for a critically praised film.

The trilogy of films has been constant on its debut and this does better than Rise but not quite at good as Dawn's £8 million debut.

With this in mind I'd expect this to end its run in the £30 million region.

Spider-Man Homecoming falls to number 3 this week leapfrogging over Despicable Me 3 by the tightest of margins with a £3.7 million weekend.

This brings the films total gross to £16 million after 10 days of release and is looking set to match the first Spider-Man film from 2002.

Despicable Me at number 2 took £3.8 million and has now grossed £26 million from 3 weekends of release.

For the Monday - Sunday week the top film would have been Spider-Man with a £7.4 million weekly gross with Apes second and Despicable Me 3 third.

For the third weekend running The Boss Baby is the longest running film with 15 weeks and the highest grossing with £28 million.

Historical charts

A year ago
This time last year expectations were high when the rebooted Ghostbusters hit the top on its debut knocking off The Secret Life of Pets after 3 weeks on top.

Five years ago
Ice Age: Continental Drift stayed on top for a third week while the top new film was Magic Mike at number 3.

Ten years ago
It was a rare summer release for Harry Potter as Harry Potter and The Order of The Phoenix hit the top on its debut knocking Shrek The Third down to 2.

Fifteen years ago
Scooby Doo was the top film of the week making its debut while Minority Report fell to number 2 after a week on top.

Twenty years ago
Batman and Robin stayed on top for a third weekend with the top new film Murder at 1600 landing at 3.

Twenty five years ago
Batman Returns was the top film of the week landing at number 1 on its debut while The Player fell to number 2 after 2 weeks on top.

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.

Historical charts

A year ago
The Secret Life of Pets held on to the top of the chart with The Legend of Tarzan coming in as the highest new film at number 2.

Five years ago
The Amazing Spider-Man starring Andrew Garfield made its debut at the top of the box office on its debit weekend knocking Ice Age: Continental Drift down to number 2.

Ten years ago
Shrek The Third remained at the top for a second weekend while the top new film was Die Hard 4.0 starring Bruce Willis at number 2.

Fifteen years ago
Tom Cruise starred in Minority Reports which too over at the top on its debut while Spider-Man fell to number 2 after 3 weeks on top.

Twenty years ago
Batman and Robin remained on top while the top new film was George Clooney in One Fine Day at number 2.

Twenty five years ago
The Player stayed at the top for a second weekend while the top new film was Sleepwalkers at number 2.

This week the animated series of Despicable Me in its third incarnation, imaginatively titled Despicable me 3, removed Transformers from the top after just a week.

Taking a decent £11 million from the weekend the third film, or fourth if you count Minions, in the series comes in under the second film but way above the first.

Worth a note last years Minions debuted with almost the exact same gross as this so the series is on a stable keel at the moment.

Transformers: The Last Knight falls down to number 3 this week with a weekend gross of £1.06 million bringing the films total gross to £8 million.

Transformers leap frogs over Baby Driver which makes its debut at number 2 this week, the much hyped film makes £3.6 million on its debut.

Directed by Edgar Write Baby Driver does better than nearly all other Write directed movies other than Hot Fuzz which was his follow up movie to the excellent Shaun of The Dead and was much hyped as well.

Also new this week is All Eyez On Me which us new at 4 with just under a million pound and quite disappointingly so The House which is new at 6 with Half a million pound.

The Boss Baby is this week the longest running film on the box office with 13 weeks and the highest total grossing with £28.5 million.
