The US box office this week is dominated by the true life drama of airline pilot Sully who landed a plane on the Hudson River in New York and saved the plane of passengers and crew.

Starring Tom Hanks as the pilot the film is directed by Clint Eastwood and with good reviews sees the pair return to the top with a $35.5 million debut.

After a couple of weeks at the top Dont Breathe falls to number 3 this week with $8.2 million over the weekend, this brings the films US gross to $66.8 million.

Also making their US debuts this week are When the Bough Breaks at number 2 with $15 million and The Wild Life (or Robinson Crusoe as it will be else where) at number 5.

Highest total grossing movie on the top 10 this week is Suicide Squad which has now taken $307 million ver 6 weeks and longest run is Bad Moms which has now been a hit for 7 weeks.

There was little buzz about this film other than the voice talent of Johnny Depp in the lead character role, Rango thus takes the top of the UK box office this week from another CG animated film.

Rango is the story of a lizard who winds up in the Wild West of America and you can guess what happens from there, queue many jokes based on the western genre! The film had a mediocre opening weekend in what has been a quiet week compared to recent weeks with a £1,638,613 weekend.

Runner up this week is another new entry in the shape of Matt Damon in The Adjustment Bureau, the George Nolfi directed film took £1,395,715 over the weekend.

Finishing a trio of new released at the top of the box office this week is the Liam Neeson starring Unknown. The thriller for which Neeson is starting to pigeon hole himself into is directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and took £1,356,345.

For the top 3 it was a fairly close call all-round.

Frost and Pegg are at number 4 with their Alien film Paul which has a weekend take of £1,109,766 with a total gross of £12,207,049, and getting over the hangover of the award season if The Kings Speech which is now at 3 with a weekend of £1,076,381 which brings its total now to £41,930,117. Last weeks top film, Gnomeo and Juliet, falls all the way to 6 this week, quite a drop post school holiday, but Rango is direct competition and took much of its potential this week.

Compared to last year this weeks box office is way lower, last year Tim Burtons Alice in Wonderland (3D) opened at the top of the chart with an excellent £10 million plus opening which is more than the combined top 15 this week, the rest of the top 5 last year was almost insignificant but Avatar was knocked off the top and The Crazies, The Lovely Bones and The Princess and the Frog all hang around but with diminishing returns.
