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.

The Naked Gun 2 ½ The Smell of Fear remained at the top for a second weekend with the Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin film Too Hot To Handle new at number 3.

Its still unusual that a film will climb to the top of the box office, but this week with many people otherwise occupied with the start of the Euro 2016 championships Me Before You climbs to the top.

Last week the film entered at number 3 but this week manages to top the chart, and is the only film this week to take over £1 million in weekend grosses.

The film not has a total UK gross of £4.4 million and with the Euro's with us for the next 3 weeks who knows what could happen?

With a lot of studio's not willing to release new film at the moment the rest of the chart reads very similar to last week, the highest new film is the Melissa McCarthy vehicle at number 7 which manages just below £600,000 for the weekend.

Highest total grossing movie is The Jungle book which has taken £45.1 million after 10 weeks and longest run on the chart is 11 weeks for Zootopia.

Worthy or not this week is that this week's cinema had the lowest total take of 2016 and the lowest since September last year.

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.

Civil War now makes it three weeks at the top and this week adds £2.7 million to its gross which has now soared to £32.1 million.

The film is now the 5th highest grossing of the year and before it finishes its run it should beat Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice and Deadpool, currently at 4 and 3 respectively.

The Angry Birds Movie is the highest new film at number 2 which on its debut takes £2.1 million.

Aiming squarely at kids but also appealing to adults that hooked on the game the film loosely follows the plot of the games.

The film should do well over the coming half term but will have limited appeal after that.

Longest stay by a film on the box office this week is Zootopia with 8 weeks and the highest grossing movie is The Jungle Book at £39.3 million after 5 weeks.

In a mixed up week at the UK box office, using figures including 2 days of previews Adam Sandlers Pixels takes over a the top, the true winner is Inside Out.

If you take away the 2 days of previews Pixar's Inside Out is by far the biggest film of the weekend, and indeed of the week with only a 3% drop from the previous weeks takings.

But lets not take away from the given champion and Pixels duly takes over at the top of the UK box office with a weekend gross of £2.7 million.

After a slamming from critics last weeks top film, Fantastic Four, makes a dramatic fall from the top and lands at number 6 this week with a total gross after 2 weekends of £4.8 million.

The re-image of the superhero franchise simply hasn't worked and the new film will come no-where near the 2005 version which took £12.4 million or it's sequel 4: Rise of The Silver Surfer which took almost the same amount.

Other new film this week include The Man From U.N.C.L.E. at number 4 and Trainwreck, on a limited release, at number 5, Simon Pegg's new film Absolutely Anything enters at number 9.

In comparison hasn't done as well as the £8 million plus of the first and fourth film but is on a par with the others all in the £5 million range.

Falling into second place this week is Inside Out after a single week at the top, although it's not bad news for the Pixar film, it took and incredible £9 million is mid week taking and would by far have been the biggest film is it took Monday to Sunday figures into account.

It is though way behind the leader in the Pixar crown, Toy Story 3 which took an incredible £21 million on it's debut and went on to become one of the highest grossing animation of all time.

No surprise really that Jurassic World is still the top film across the world considering the massif start to it's box office run it had.

This week the film takes another $136.7 million dollars from 67 countries to bring its world gross to $1.2 Billion, the fastest film to do this.

With Japan still to get the film Jurassic World will easily become the third highest grossing movie of all time, and on this trajectory it could challenge Titanic as the second highest grossing, although it has got a bot to go.

Pixar are sticking solid in second place where Inside Out remains for another week, a $78.5 million dollar weekend, from 43 countries, brings it's world gross to $266.4 on its second weekend of release.

With most of Europe still to see a release of the film it still has some dollars to rake in giving it the potential to be one of the most successful animations of all time, although it wont touch Frozen, the biggest or Toy Story 3 which both made over a billion.

Highest new film of the week with a release in 27 countries of the sequel movie Ted 2, taking a non too shabby $53.2 million on it;s debut weekend.

Here is the top 10 world film weekending 29th June:

  1. Jurassic World - $136,717,170
  2. Inside Out - $78,528,000
  3. Ted 2 - $53,222,730
  4. Minions - $36,000,000

Two films this year have made it past $1 billion in world box office grosses, Avengers Age of Ultron and Fast and Furious 7, which brings the total number of films to go past the threshold to 20.

The first film to do the feat was Titanic back in 1997, that held on as the only film to do so until The Lord of The Rings: The Return of The King did it in 2004.

Since then we have had the likes of a Harry Potter film, a Transformers film, a Star Wars film after a re-release and a couple of Pirates of the Caribbean films do it.

Two animated films have also done the feat, Toy Story 3 and of course Disney's biggest hit to date Frozen.

The top film of all time, and the previously mentioned Titanic have gone over the $2 billion mark, although it did take Titanic a 3D re-release to do the $2B feat. Were looking at the first $3 Billion film now, Avengers Age of Ultron is doing well but will fall short, will Star Wars: The Force Awakens manage it, 2016 will tell us.

In what became fantastic weekend gross Fast and Furious 7 makes it's debut at the top of the UK box office with ease, although last weeks top film still does decent numbers.

Furious 7 took an excellent £12.7 million over the Easter weekend and in the process not only became the top film in the motoring franchise but is also the 31st highest film debut in the UK.

Having a debut similar to that of a Hunger games film or Inbetweener Movie will see the film gross over £30 million in the UK, and in comparison it's near the debut of Fifty Shades of Grey which has so far made £34 million.

Last weeks top film, Cinderella, takes nearly £3 million for the weekend placing at 2 with it's total UK gross now at just over £10 million.

Also new this week are The Water Diviner at 7 and While We're Young at number 8.

Also making an appearance due to screening by the BFI is the 1982 Ridley Scott sci-fi classic Blade Runner which has taken £267,452 over the weekend.

The film should do well in the next couple of weeks as its the school Easter holidays, but with Home still on release and Spongebob also out there it has competition.

A relatively low opening gross of just over £800,00 will probably see the film disappear quite quickly from the box office chart.

The only other new film opening on the top 10 this week is Suite Francaise at number 4 with a half a million debut.

This time last year a video game adaptation of Need For Speed hit the top of the box office on it's debut knocking 300 Rise of an Empire down to 3rd.

Five years ago
Alice in Wonderland was still riding the top of the box office with the highest new film at 2 in the shape of Shutter Island.

Hitch made it's way to the top on it's debut weekend knocking Boogeyman from the top to number 3.

Fifteen years ago
Toy Story 2 retained it's lead at the top of the box office and in a very quiet week for new releases the highest new film was The insider at number 7.

Making it 2 weeks at the top, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel retains it's lead over the rest of the box office with £2 million over the weekend, 33% down on last week, not bad.

In an unusual move the Will Smith starring Focus moves up to second place despite a drop to £ 1.3 million in weekend gross, showing what a low grossing weekend it was.

Highest new film of the frame is Neill Blomkamp Chappie at 4, despite the hype the movie only managed a £1.015 million opening weekend, the lowest of the directors career.

Other new films this weekend are: Still Alice at 8 but from only 86 screen showing and Unfinished Business at 9, Vince Vaughn's career worst.

Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland made a huge debut at the top of the box office, finally dislodging Avatar which fell a single place to 2.

Twenty and twenty five years ago
Twenty years ago Dumb and Dumber was still the big film in March with The Madness of King George making waves as a new film, twenty five years ago saw Look Who's Talking making an impressive debut in March as the top film.

This week sequel movie The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel makes its debut at the top of the UK box office chart.

The original cast returns for the sequel to the 2012 movie with the help of American star Richard Gere who is added to the cast to give it an ‘American' appeal.

The film takes £3.7 million on it's debut weekend which is far better than the £2.2 million of the original, that film had long lasting appeal, time will tell if this follows.

Falling into the runner up spot after 2 weeks at the top is Fifty Shades Of Grey, a third weekend gross of £2.5 million brings the total to £30.4 million making it by far not the best grossing film of 2015 to date.

Worth mentioning, if the chart were based on the full week ticket sales and not just the weekend, Fifty Shades of Grey would have retained it's position at the top with £5 million.

Other new films to enter the box office this week are: Focus at 3, The Boy Next Door at 7 and It Follows at 8.

The Logo Movie was still riding high at the top of the box office which Liam Neeson starred in the highest new film at 2 Non-Stop.

Five years ago
Avatar was still the top film in the UK while the highest new film was The Crazies which entered at number 3.

Ten years ago
Robert De Nero starred in the chiller Hide and Seek which entered at the top knocking Meet The Fockers down to number 2.

Fifteen years ago
There was no moving Toy Story 2 which spent another week at the top while the highest new film of the week was The Talented Mr. Ripley which entered at number 3.

After such a strong debut from Fifty Shades of Grey last weekend the film was almost certain to retain it's lead at the top for a second weekend, which it does.

A weekend take of £4.6 million now brings the total gross of the film to £25.2 million, meaning it takes over from The Theory of Everything as the top film of 2015 so far.

It is also not the highest grossing 18 rated film in the UK, and the highest grossing R rated movie in America.

Half term week meant that the family and children's films on the chart had strong weeks, Big hero 6 and Shaun the Sheep Movie both had increases in takings from the previous weekend and hold the number 2 and 3 positions.

Highest new film of the week is The Wedding Ringer starring Kevin Hart and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, it enters at 4 with a debut gross of £990,000.

One other new film on the top 10 this week in the shape of time travel film Project Almanac.

A year ago saw a very static chart with The Logo Movie staying at the top and Mr. Peabody and Sherman staying at number 2.

Avatar went back again to the top of the box office on it's 10th week of release which the highest new film was Peter Jacksons The Lovely Bones.

Ten years ago
Meet the Fockers was still the number 1 film in the UK while the highest debut was at number 5 from Shall We Dance.

Fifteen years ago
Toy Story 2 stayed at the top of the box office for another week with the highest new film, The Bachelor, enter the chart right down at number 6.

As the film was already one of the most pre-book films in UK cinema history before it was released on Friday it should come as no surprise that Fifty Shades of Grey debuts at the top of the UK box office.

Taking a debut weekend gross of £13.5 million Fifty Shades has the 26 highest grossing opening weekend in the UK nesting in between The Simpsons Movie and Pirates of The Caribbean: At Worlds End.

The lasting appeal of Fifty Shades will be interesting to see as the film has been so front loaded with sales, and the mixed reviews, many being really bad, could hurt the future gross of the film.

Last weeks top film, Big Hero 6, falls just the one place this week, taking £1.8 million on it's third week of release, Big Hero 6 currently has a total gross of £9.9 million.

Nothing dares challenge Fifty Shades this week but there were a couple of other new releases on the box office: Peppa Pig The Golden Boots is at 6 and right down at 14 is Love Is Strange.

Toy Story 2 kept it's hold of the number 1 spot while Danny Boyle's The Beach was the highest new film at number 2.

Frozen has been an unprecedented success for Disney, only the second cartoon to ever go over $1 billion at the world box office joining Disney/Pixars Toy Story 3 earlier this yeah.

Now Frozen has beaten the third Toy Story film to become the highest grossing animation ever with a world gross currently stinging at about $1.7 billion (and rising) compared to Toy Story 3's $1.6 billion.

Animation has accounted for some of the highest grossers of recent times, domestically and across the globe, last years in the UK Despicable Me 2 (from Dreamworks) was the highest grossing film of the year and fell just short of $1 billion worldwide.

Disney themselves have always down done well with The Lion King being the highest grossing animation from 1994 until Toy Story3's release in 2010, and The Lion King benefited greatly from it's 3D re-release a couple of years ago.

And to add to this, if you adjust ticket prices for inflation, according to many sources Snow While and the Seven Dwarfs is the most watched film at cinemas of all time, and guess what, thats Disney as well.

It is with much sadness to write about the passing of Apple founder Steve Jobs, as an almost obsessive follower of technology he has been one of a selected few who has given me something to think about for the last 10 years.

Lets not forget also the incredible effect he has had on the film industry. Jobs in 1988 saw a computer graphics company that George Lucus was going to close down, bought it for $10 million dollars and not only created one of the greatest film studios the world has seen, but also created a studio which has brought some of the best loved characters of the last 20years.

From their first film Toy Story to their latest hit Cars 2 Pixar has continues to bring box office hits and stories we can cherish. Even kids today go to Disney and love the likes of Woody, Buzz, Nemo, Flick, WALL-E.

As a member of the Disney board Jobs also helped bring the firm back to life with Pixar a staple corner of that company, Pixar literally revolutionised animated film in the same way the iPod revolutionised the way we listed to music and the iPad revolutionized the way we use portable computers.

Lets celebrate his life, but with great sadness I say RIP Steve Jobs

Go back just over a year and the biggest film in the world (by box office gross) had been established, that film was James Cameron's Avatar, a film built from the ground up to show what 3D can achieve.

This weekend in the US Cars 2 has hit the top spot with a weekend gross of $68 million of which only 40% of that take was from 3D screening, so is the public finally realisd that 3D is just a gimmick?

If you listen to Sony they would have you believe that 3D is the future, we'll be watching all out broadcast TV and home movies in 3D, Nintendo are another company who have invested a lot of money in 3D, producing the 3DS, there is certainly no shortage of temptation for us to embrace the 3D age.

Not lets look at the numbers, Cars 2 isn't a first, King Fu Panda 2 and Rio both took more money in 2D rather than 3D, and most people who saw Pixar's top grossing film last year Toy Story 3 seemed to agree that the 3D did nothing for the film. In Japan the 3DS has been struggling, being outsold by the 7 year old PSP, a device for which the successor has already been announced and is reducing in sales.

Is there a future for 3D? Who knows at the moment, but 3D is starting to show it's colours at the cinema, the surcharge on the glasses certainly cant be helping, Sky TV are struggling with the uptake of 3D subscribers, again there is a surcharge, and gamers seem to be rejecting the notion as well.

There are a couple of high profile catalogue 3D film that have been retrofitted with 3D, the Star Wars Saga and Titanic, this may well be a test as to how the public is embracing 3D, but on current evidence we don't want it, the novelty has warn off.

Despite rumblings from many a commentator about maybe Colin Firth not getting an Oscar, or Natalie Portman being piped at the post by Annette Benning, in the end the Oscar evening went as predictably as you could imagine with just about everyone predicting all the major winners.

Colin Firth and Natalie Portman got their statues, while Christian Bale and Melissa Leo (both for The Fighter) got awarded. Maybe the most unpredictable award for the night was best film and director, most thought that The Social Network and its director David Fincher might clinch it, but The Kings Speech and director Tom Hooper took home the glory.

Toy Story 3 deservedly gained the best animated feature Oscar and in maybe a surprise move Banks diod not get the best documentary Oscar, so no stunt appearance, instead that went to Inside Job, a film from director Charles Ferguson about the financial crisis of 2008.

In all I suppose it was a predictable night, but one where all the Oscars went to deserved winners, something which rarely happens. The awards season is now over, a season which I used to get very excited about, and although I still look at the winners with interest I don't get nearly as excited as I did 10 years ago, maybe Oscar is no longer relevant?

It's the end of the year, and which of the many films released this year was the highest grossing movie for 2010, well it was the return of our favourite toys in Disney/Pixars Toy Story 3.

Woody and friends grossed an incredible £73,405,113 during its 13 week run in the chart from late July until mid-October.

Second this year is a film released late in 2009, Avatar which this year alone £ 60,374,665, but the film also had a good gross last year and is currently the top grossing film ever in the UK.

Third on the list is the latest Harry Potter film, lower than the other films in the series but still grossing £ 44,443,734 so far, this film still has good legs though and we could see an appearance next year as well.

Finally we have Alice in Wonderland with £ 42,169,542 and Inception, which took £ 35,264,403.

Honourable mention must go to Harry Potter and Inception which managed to take decent grosses in the UK with lower ticket prices due to them not being in 3D, it's no surprise that in the top 10 films of 2010 half of them are in 3D and have the surplus on the ticket price.

Disney/Pixar have released a trailer for the coming soon (3D) Toy Story 3, and it's funny, really funny, the time between installments hasn't lost any of the Toy Story charm.

A lot of the story is mentioned in the trailer, I wont give anything away just watch it, but this is the natural sequel to part 2 given the amount of time between episodes.

This is going to be one of the highlights of next year there is no doubt about that, until then we just have the trailer and the re-release of the original 2 in 3D.
