The last box office chart of the year and Rogue One A Star Wars Story is still the top film across the country for a third straight week while top new film Why Him? comes in at number 2.

With a weekend gross that is showing only a gradual slow down Rogue One takes £5.9 million, this brings the films total gross to £52 million and makes it the highest grossing film released in 2016 in the UK.

Its still not the highest grossing film in the calendar year 2016 with Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens £5 million ahead but for Disney/Lucasfilms to have a the one and two position of the year its been a great year for Star Wars.

Highest new entry of the week entering at 2 is the James Franco comedy Why Him? which takes a very respectable £2.1 million.

For a not franchise film and with Franco as the main headline this is actually a good debut, but with little publicity and very little word of mouth the film could sink fast.

Highest total grossing film is Rogue One while longest running film this week is The Secret Life of Pets which has now been in cinemas for 15 weeks and this week is at number 15.

Historical Charts

A year ago
Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens was in its third week of release and at number one still and with nearly £100 million gross was close to being the top film in the UK ever, Joy was the top new film at 3.

Five years ago
making its debut at the top was Mission:Impossible Ghost Protocol while Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows fell from the top to number 3.

Ten years ago
Night At The Museum was the top new film of the week making its debut at number 1 while Happy Feet fell to number 2 after 3 weeks at number 1.

Fifteen years ago
Two weeks at the top for The Lord of The Rings: The Fellowship of The Ring while the top new film was the remake of Mean Machine which landed at 3.

Twenty years ago
101 Dalmatians remained at the top for a third week while top new film was Daylight which made its debut at number 3.

Twenty five years ago
Making its debut at the top was Curly Sue while The Addams Family fell to number 3 after 2 weeks at the top.

Summing up the top grossing movies of 2016 brings up some interesting data as the top film of the year is a film from 2015, and a huge film of 2016 at that.

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens despite being released at the very end of 2015 took £57 million in 2016 and thus becomes the highest grossing film of the year.

The long awaited Star Wars saga sequel also took £65 million in 2015 and was the second highest grossing film last year and is also the highest grossing film ever in the UK.

Taking The Force Awakens out of the equation for a moment the highest grossing film of the year, films that were released in 2016, is Bridget Jones's Baby.

The return of Bridget Jones to our cinemas struck a good note with a British audience to the tune of £47.8 million, although its still £10 million below The Force Awakens.

Next is Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which has taken £47.4 million and with the film still in the UK top 10 I would guess this will overtake Bridget Jones in the new year.

Next up is the Disney live action version of The Jungle Book which has a Uk gross of £46 million, we then have Finding Dory with £42 million and Deadpool with £37 million.

Of the top 10 of 2016 5 of the films are Disney movies or franchises - Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has just crept into the top 10 after 2 weeks of release.

Seven of the film are franchise films and 2 of the top 5 and film which are considered British although 4 of the film were made in the UK.

Here is the full UK top 10 films of 2016.

  1. Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens - £57,101,335
  2. Bridget Jones's Baby - £47,826,849
  3. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - £47,469,530
  4. The Jungle Book - £46,191,905
  5. Finding Dory - £42,604,905
  6. Deadpool - £37,616,432
  7. Captain America: Civil War - £36,771,782
  8. Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice - £36,495,828
  9. The Secret Life of Pets - £34,649,738
  10. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - £33,943,482
As the year comes to a close its time to reflect on the films that hit the big time in 2016 - so what were the highest grossing film at the global box office?

The top grossing film across the globe in 2016 is Captain America: Civil War - this surprised me a bit but is testament on how well established the Marvel Cinematic Universe is now.

The third in the Captain America series - although some might say it is more an Avengers movie that Captain America Movie - took $1.5 billion at the global box office.

Compared to 2015 this is far lower than Jurassic World which took $1.6 billion but is on par with the number 2 film Fast and Furious 7 with took $1.5 billion (for the record Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens took more but much of that was in 2016). Finding Dory is the second highest grossing film of 2016 with $1.027 billion while not very far behind it is Zootopia (Zootropolis) which took $1.026 billion.

Rounding out the top 5 is The Jungle Book and The Secret Life of Pets wich both took a shade under a billion each.

The top 2 films were both sequels and 6 of the top 10 films were either sequels or part of an already established franchise, and Deadpool at 7 although not part of a franchise is certainly part of the Marvel Superhero world.

Disney did very well this year with the top 4 film all being from the studio and it wouldn't surprise me if Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ended up in the top five film by the time it ends its run.

Four of the top 10 are superhero movies, four of the top ten have animals as their primary cast, 3 are animations (arguably 4) and 8 have sequels and further adventures in the series already announced. Thanks 2016 at the global box office, here is the full top 10.

  1. Captain America: Civil War - $1,153,304,495
  2. Finding Dory - $1,027,771,569
  3. Zootopia - $1,023,784,195
  4. The Jungle Book - $966,550,600
  5. The Secret Life of Pets - $875,457,937
  6. Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice - $873,260,194
  7. Deadpool - $783,112,979
  8. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - $748,820,251
  9. Suicide Squad - $745,600,054
  10. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - $687,878,705

This week on the UK home video charts animated hit The Secret Life of Pets takes over from X-Men Apocalypse at the top.

The Secret Life of Pets was a massive hit for Universal that was released on 24th June 2016 and it hit the top of the box office on its debut with £9.5 million, the 74th best UK opening.

The film spent 3 weeks at the top before making a very slow decent down the box office, it spent an incredible 14 weeks in total on the top 15.

The total gross for the film in the UK is £35.8 million which makes it the 68th top grossing film while globally it took $864.2 million (£696 million) and is the 50th top film across the world.

Last weeks top film, X-Men Apocalypse, fell down to number 3 this week after a week at the top.

Also new this week is Independence Day Resurgence, sequel to the 1996 hit film it made number 2 on the box office on 24th June.

Worth noting is the flurry of Christmas films that are starting to pop up in the home video charts, this week we have Arthur Christmas at 9, How The Grinch Stole Christmas at 10 and Elf at 11.

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.

On the UK box office this week Emily Blunt knocks off Renee Renée Zellweger as Bridget Jones is no match for The Girl on The Train.

Making its debut with just under £7 million The Girl on The Train is aiming for a similar target audience as Gone Girl which was released early October of 2014 and did very well.

This film which is also based on a bestselling novel has managed to come in £2 million higher despite reviews not being as favourable.

After 3 weeks at the top is it time for Bridget Jones's Baby to surrender the top spot and with a £2.9 million weekend falls to number 2.

The film cant be too sorry for itself as it has grossed £37.8 million so far and at the current pace will most likely become the most successful of the series.

Also new this week are War On Everyone at number 7 and Tristan und Isolde from the Metropolitan Opera which is new at 8.

Highest total grossing movie this week id Finding Dory with £41 million and longest run is The Secret Life of Pets which has now been around for 11 weeks.

Twenty five years ago
Out For Justice debuted at the top, knocking off Terminator 2: Judgement Day after 7 weeks at the top, it fell to number 3.

The remake of The Magnificent Seven claimed the box office across the globe this week headed by its release in America.

The Denzel Washington led action film went to the top as it expanded its release to 64 countries and took $54.2 million over the week.

This brings its total gross across the glove to $59.8 million half of which comes from its general release in America.

Falling from the top down to number 3 is Bridget Jones's baby, a second weekend of $26.4 million brings its global total to $83.5 million from 48 countries.

Highest new film of the week lands at number 2. animated tale Storks is released in 34 countries and takes $40.1 million on its debut.

Highest total grossing movie of the week is still The Secret Life of Pets which now sits at $820.9 million and still has a wide release in 58 countries.

Clint Eastwood and Tom Hanks dominate the world box office this week as their true life drama Scully easily dominates.

A very quiet week at the global box office as Scully manages to top with just $45 million from 40 counties, $35 of that from America.

For such an American centric film thats not a surprise and it is still to be released in many countries, Europe is a big Hanks fan to expect a big boost when released there.

Last weeks top film Star Trek Beyond falls to number 2 with only $17 million from 41 countries with China is still doing well on its second week of release.

At number 5 Chinese film The Age Of Shadows makes its debut with $16 million, very good consider the single territory it is released in. Also new at number 7 this week is When The Bow Breaks which grosses $15 million from its US release.

Still the top grossing film on the global top 10 is The Secret Life of Pets which has now taken $789 million during its box office run.

It may have had its run in much of the world but the late summer release of Star Trek Beyond in China catapults the film back to the top.

As with last week last weeks chart a Chinese opening if a film does wonders and a $31 million opening has the film take $39 million from 40 countries for the weekend and a quiet market takes it back to the top.

The late summer has proved to be a difficult time for the box office and with little other movement the whole top 10 this week across the globe is the same as last week.

You actually have to go down to the 17th film on this weeks global box office to find a new film, The Light Between Oceans takes $5 million from 1 country.

Tp total grossing movie on the chart this week is The Secret Life of Pets, and incredible run sees it still at 4 and its total world gross is now $761.5 million.

  1. Star Trek Beyond - $39,450,000
  2. Suicide Squad - $21,805,000
  3. Don't Breathe - $21,000,000
  4. The Secret Life Of Pets - $20,848,335
  5. Jason Bourne - $15,991,520
Across the globe this week Jason Bourne expands its territories to 63 countries on release, including China now, and goes to the top of the global box office.

The Matt Damon starring film made $63 million over the week and has to date made $347 million globally.

Also benefitting from a Chinese release is Ice Age: Collision Course, still on release in 38 countries the film took $50 million over the week to bring its total gross to $367 million.

Highest new film of the week is Don't Breath, released in 8 countries and headed up by its US release the film took $28 million over the week.

Top total grossing film across the gross this week is The Secret Life of Pets, still riding high at number 4 it has grossed $724.4 million.

The global top 5 looks like this:

  1. Jason Bourne - $62,029,490
  2. Ice Age: Collision Course - $50,480,000
  3. Suicide Squad - $31,710,000
  4. The Secret Life Of Pets - $28,359,810
  5. Don't Breathe - $28,015,000
In an unusual event for the box office charts and old favourite returns to the top of the box office, Disney/Pixars Finding Dory replaces Suicide Squad after 4 weeks of release.

We are coming to the end of the School holidays in the UK and its a time when a lot of families are back from their time away so its perhaps no suprise that the box kids film of the moment returns to the top.

A fantastic 4th weekend gross of £2.8 million takes the total gross to £32.3 million, this puts the film on a level with the original Finding Nemo.

Falling into second place is 2 week champion Suicide Squad, a £2.5 million weekend brings the total gross to an fantastic £27.6 million.

This puts the DC anti-hero film ahead of the DC superhero film Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice from earlier in the year.

Highest new film of the week is a British institution making its debut, David Brent Life On The Road, and although it hasn't done nearly as well as Absolutely Fabulous The Movie from this year is debuts at 3 with £1.4 million.

The Office was such a big hit from over10 years ago, was of its time, and is still loved its a challenge to get that feeling back, and this only looks at one of the characters so it could sink fast.

The Secret Life of Pets is still the top total grossing movie of the week with £33.7 million and the longest running film with 9 weeks.

Interesting note this week, if the chart were calculated from the full weeks taking it would have been a very different picture, Suicide Squad would have retained the top, The BFG would have been 3rd and David Brent Life on the Road would have been 6th

Once again the Warner Bros. Anti-Hero ensemble tops the global box office chart, but it does loose ground to The Secret Life of Pets, Ben-Hur is the top new film.

With $58.7 million, from 65 countries, in global takings over the week Suicide Squad keeps itself ahead of the pack, this brings the films total gross over half a billion now to $572.6 million.

Coming in new at 3 is the 2016 remake of Ben-Hur which takes $22 million on its debut week of release from 24 countries.

The film has got very low keys reviews in America which could effect its gross in other countries when released and might sink quite fast.

Other new film this week are War Dogs at 4 and Kubo And The Two Strings at 10 from 9 countries .

Highest total grossing film on this weeks global box office is The Secret Life Of Pets, still at 2 with $674 million and still released in 54 countries.

Here is the global top 5.

  1. Suicide Squad - $58,710,000
  2. The Secret Life Of Pets - $50,772,240
  3. Ben-Hur - $22,050,000
  4. War Dogs - $20,800,000
  5. Jason Bourne - $19,275,865
No change at the top of the US box office this week as the Anti-heroes of Suicide Squad make it 3 weeks at the top, while at number 3 War Dogs is the highest new film.

In a relatively quiet week for new releases Harley Quinn and co. take another $20 million over the 3 day weekend with their total gross now pushed to $262.2 million.

Highest new film of the week if the Jonah Hill starring War Dogs which takes $14.3 million, it comes in ahead of Kubo and the Two Strings and the 2016 remake of Ben-Hur.

The quiet late summer weekend also sees little movement in the lower end of the chart with the longest stay being The Secret Life of Pets again, it is also once again the highest total gross with $346.7 million.

There was just one major release this week there which basically means there was inevitably going to be a new film making its debut at the top, and as predicted Warner Bros. Suicide Squad does just that.

Continuing the DC Cinematic Universe that was started in Man of Steel and Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice this film does something the Marvel/Disney have not yet dared, put the bad guys front and centre.

And audiences have lapped this up with Suicide Squad topping the UK box office with an excellent £11.2 million, nearly as big as the much more anticipated Batman V Superman from March.

That superhero movie sank quickly at the box office so we'll be watching things closely to see if it does similar.

Worth noting is that if the chart listing was taken over the whole week then Finding Dory would sit at the top with £12 million.

Highest total grossing on this weeks top 10 is The Secret Life of Pets which has now grossed over £32 million, while longest stay on the box office is The Angry Birds Movie with 11 weeks.

Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves was at top for another week while the top new film came in at number 2 in the shape of Backdraft.

This week at the global box office Warner Bros. Suicide Squad makes a fantastic debut raking in $267.1 million.

The film had a very wide release showing up in 58 countries, one of the largest of any film at the moment, and the US led the way with nearly half that gross, the UK was second.

Normally with such a large opening we would be looking at a long term run and large gross, but this year has proved that big opening weeks don't necessarily mean long cinema runs.

Jason Bourne falls from the top this week quite hard and from 51 counties has a weekly gross of $43 million, the total gross is now $195 million.

Worthy of a mention is Chinese film Time Raiders which opens in just 1 country, China, and manages to land at 3 with $64.6 million.

Finding Dory is still the top total grossing movie on the global box office having taken a total of $870.2 million to date, the billion mark is looking unlikely, but Disney now have the top 4 grossing film of 2016.

  1. Suicide Squad - $267,105,000
  2. The Secret Life Of Pets - $80,164,305
  3. Time Raiders - $64,600,000
  4. Jason Bourne - $43,604,780
  5. Bad Moms - $17,104,000
In the US this week DC comics and Warner Bros. took their anti-hero movie Suicide Squad to the top of the box office in record style on its debut.

For a movie released in August Suicide Squad has now become the first film to take over $100 on its debut, its total gross for the weekend (including Thursday previews) is $135 million.

Last weeks top film, Jason Bourne, takes a tumble to number 2 this week with $22.7 million, its total over the 10 days since release is $103 million.

Putting themselves up against Suicide Squad this week was Nine Lives which enters at number 6 with $6.5 million.

Highest grossing movie and longest run on the US box office this week is The Secret Life of Pets which has now made $319 million over 5 weeks.

This weekend saw the release of two of this summers most anticipated films, and sequels, in Finding Dory and Jason Bourne, and the forgetful little fish won the weekend.

Finding Dory debut weekend in the UK stands at &pond;8.1 million, and excellent opening by all means and not only one of Pixars highest in the UK but also one of the top animation openings.

Compared to 2003s Finding Nemo, and despite the more negative reviews, the film opens higher, but compared to ticket sales Dory (1.1 million) is half a million below Nemo (1.6 million).

Jason Bourne comes in a comfortable second place this week with £7.6 million which is the highest of the series to date.

The BFG falls from the top where it debuted last week to number 3 this week, although if you take in the whole week it is the top grossing movie (Monday - Sunday) with £9.1 million, total gross for the movie is £14 million.

Highest gross and longest run on the top 10 is The Secret Life of Pets which has now grossed £30 million over 6 weeks.

There was no moving Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves at the top while top new film of the week was Edward Scissorhands.

This week was the global release of the latest Bourne movie which saw it dominate the box office with its wide release in 47 counties.

America led the way and create just over half of the global box box office gross for the movie, the total was 110 million, far greater the last film in the series The Bourne Legacy.

This is a good start for the fifth film in the series and fourth starring Matt Damon and with positive reviews it should see the film gross some impressive numbers.

Falling from the top is Star Trek Beyond, which like its predecessor had a strong opening weekend but a heavy second frame.

The film took $37 million this week from 41 countries to bring its total gross to $160.5 million, and with much of the films gross bound to be front loaded this could mean trouble for the franchise.

Also new this week is League Of Gods at number 5 which has an impressive launch from 7 countries for a $30 million opening week.

Highest total grossing movie on the top 10 global box office this week is Finding Dory which has now taken $469 million.

The global top five looks like this.

  1. Jason Bourne - $110,142,540
  2. The Secret Life Of Pets - $47,712,325
  3. Star Trek Beyond - $37,000,000
  4. Ice Age: Collision Course - $30,000,000
  5. League Of Gods - $30,000,000
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
In the US this week the latest in the rebooted Star Trek saga, Star Trek Beyond, makes its debut at the top of the box office knocking The Secret Life Of Pets to number 2.

The Justin Lin directed movie - taking over from JJ Abrams who was in a galaxy far far away at the time - takes $59 million on its opening weekend.

This year is the 50th anniversary of the TV series debut, but unfortunately this film has fallen short of its predecessors which both took in the $70 million or above region.

The new film has got far better reviews than Star Trek Into Darkness which could carry it onto a better gross in the long run.

The Secret Life of Pets falls to number 2 this week with a weekend gross of $29.3 million which brings the animated films total gross to $260 million.

Finding Dory is this week the highest total grossing movie and the longest running movie on the US top 10 with a $460 million total gross over 6 weeks.

There were two new big entries on the box office this week and the 2016 reboot of Ghostbusters was the highest of them.

Directed by Paul Feig and starring Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig the new take on the classic 1984 film tops the UK box office with £4.3 million.

The original movie took a total of £12 million in the UK and time will tell if this will climb to those height.

The Secret Life of Pets falls to number 3 after 3 weeks at the top with a weekend gross of £2 million gross which brings the films total gross to £25.7 million.

The Secret Life of Pets is also the highest total grossing film on this weeks box office.

Also new this week at number 2 is the 5th in the Ice Age series Ice Age Collision Course, its debut gross is £3.7 million.

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.

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.

Pets made $50,5 million on its second weekend of release which brings its total after 10 days of release to $203.1 million.

The film is looking very strong and with the American school holidays in full swing this could be the one to beat this summer season.

Paul Feigs Ghostbusters reboot couldn't quite make it to the top on its debut and fell into second place with $46 million including preview shows on Thursday night.

This isn't at all bad and would have topped had it not been for the strength of Pets, good reviews have helped and it should hang around for the summer season.
