25th August 2016
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
