The week director Steven Spielberg is at the top with him adaptation of the much loved Roald Dahl book The BFG.

Hitting the heights of number one on its debut week of release the film was a big hit in UK cinemas when it was released on 22nd July 2016 where it hit number 1.

The film didn't last more than a week at the top, but it turned into a massive hit and had a slow fall down the box office.

In total the film spent 14 weeks on the official top 15 and then spent 4 weeks still pulling in audiences at cinemas, it was still in some cinemas on its week of release on home video.

The film made £30.5 million at the UK box office and it is currently number 99 on the list of all time UK box office hits.

It didnít do that well across the globe, its clearly a very British story, it only made $178 million which is very low for a Spielberg film.

Last weeks top film, The Secret Life of Pets, falls from the top to number 3 this weeks after only a single week at number 1.

Other new film this week are Star Trek Beyond at number 2, a number 2 hit released on 22nd July 2016 and Ghostbuster (the remake) a number 1 film from 15th July 2016.
