This week the flagging DC Cinematic Universe owned by Warner Bros. got a well needed kick start with Wonder Woman that not only got a fantastic opening weekend but also got good reviews.

For a new IP starring the little known Gal Gadot a £6.1 million opening is fantastic, although Chris Pine does brings some star power and the film easily takes over at the top of the UK box office.

Compared to the previous 2 films in the series, Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice and Man of Steel it is far lower but the reviews have been far better and this film could have a good run ahead of it.

With Justice League coming on November this year it could be a good year for Warner and the DC property it so wants to be a rival to Marvel Cinematic Universe but is lacking to date.

Falling from the top to number 3 this week is Pirates of The Caribbean: Salazars Revenge, a weekend take of £2 million brings the films total to £13 million.

Worth noting is for the week Monday - Sunday Pirates of The Caribbean: Salazars Revenge would have still been number 1 with a weekly take of £7.7 million.

Also making its debut this week is Baywatch, a slapstick retelling of the 90s TV show, starring Dwayne Johnson and Zak Efron the film takes £4.6 million, not bad really but not good up against a superhero movie.

This week has Smurfs The Lost Village as the longest running film with 9 weeks while Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 is the top total grossing movie with £39.6 million after 6 weeks.

Historical charts

A year ago
Warcraft made its debut at the top of the box office on its debut, and with a whole new top 3 X-Men Apocalypse fell to number 5.

Five years ago
Prometheus made its debut at the top of the UK box office while Men in Black 3 fell to number 3 on its second weekend of release.

Ten years ago
Pirates of The Caribbean: At Worlds End spent a second weekend at the top while making its debut at 2 was Wedding Daze.

Fifteen years ago
Staring at the top was Star Wars Episode II: Attack of The Clones for a third weekend while top new film was 40 Days and 40 Nights.

Twenty years ago
On its 5th weekend of release Liar Liar Went back to the top while the top new film was Absolute Power which entered at number 2, the previous weeks top film, Jungle 2 Jungle fell to number 3.

Twenty five years ago
Waynes World stayed at the top for a second weekend with the top new film being Medicine Man at number 3.

Directed by Guy Ritchie King Arthur Legend of the Sword makes its UK debut at the top of the box office, but its an unconvincing start to its box office run.

Taking £2.5 million from the weekend the film which had a massive budget and is set to start a new series of films was expected to smash its way into the box office from studio Warner Bros.

For the director this is below the debut of his top grossing films the Sherlock Holmes movies starring Robert Downey Jnr. which both debuted in the £3 million mark.

Falling into second place is Alien: Covenant which only just missed out on spending a second week at the top with a weekend gross of £2.1 million.

This brings the films total gross to £10 million, Prometheus at this point in its run was doing very similar business so expect this to end its run with a similar £20 million+.

Also new this week is Snatched starring Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn at number 4 with a debut of £842,000 and Colossal starring Anne Hathaway at number 9 with £150,000.

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.

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.

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.

This week at the global box office X-Men Apocalypse well and truely out grossed all other films to become the top film across the world.

A weekly take of $106 million ensured that it moved ahead of the crowd and its massive opening in China was largely the reason.

There is still life in old franchises as Paramount prove this week with the release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Out of the Shadows.

Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird created the mutant turtles is 1984 with the first film appearing in 1990 and this is the 6th film to bear the name although it has been rebooted a couple of times.

26 years then after their first appearance they climb to the top of the US box office with their latest film and sequel to the 2014 film.

A $35 million weekend sees it easily dislodge X-Men Apocalypse which falls from the top to number 2 after a 2 week stay.

Also new this week in America us Me Before You which enters at number 3 and Popstar Never Stop Never Stopping which is new at 8.

Top total grossing film in the US at the moment is Captain America: Civil War with $389 million and longest stay on the chart is 8 weeks from The Jungle Book.

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.

Historical charts

A year ago
Pitch Perfect 2 was still at the top of the list while the highest new film was at number 3, Tomorrowland.

Five years ago
Pirates of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the fourth in the series, made its debut at the top while the previous weeks top film, Thor, fell to number 3.

Ten years ago
Tom Hanks starred in the adaptation of The Da Vinci Code which made its debut at number 1 knocking Mission:Impossible III to number 2.

Fifteen years ago

Twenty years ago
Toy Story made its way back to the top of the charts while Money Train was the highest new film of the week.

Twenty five years ago
Misery stayed at the top of the box office for a second week while L.A. Story starring Steve Martin was the highest new film.

This week across the world the latest X-Men film X-Men Apocalypse made its debut and took over at the top but it wasn't all bad news for Captain America: Civil War.

X-Men took $106.6 million dollars with its launch in 76 countries, but not America, and took over as the top film.

In the world of cinema it is becoming quite common for one Marvel franchise to take over from another Marvel franchise, especially when from competing studios.

With 41% of the non American market and topping the X-Men debuts in many of them this latest version of the X-Men films could be one of the biggest to date.

Captain America: Civil War has now become the first movie of 2016 to break the $1 billion mark (although The Force Awakens did it in 2016) and the film now stands at $1.05 billion and is number 3 this week.

It is also of course the highest total grossing movie on the world box office and is still showing in 55 countries, although with this and Batman V Superman slowing later in their run are we starting to see a letup in the superhero dominance of the box office? Here is the world box office top 5

  1. X-Men: Apocalypse - $101.6 million
  2. The Angry Birds Movie - $94 million
  3. Captain America: Civil War - $30.7 million
  4. The Divergent Series: Allegiant - $9.9 million
  5. The Jungle Book - $7.4 million
X-Men Apocalypse tailer.
