As the year comes to a close its time to reflect on the films that hit the big time in 2016 - so what were the highest grossing film at the global box office?

The top grossing film across the globe in 2016 is Captain America: Civil War - this surprised me a bit but is testament on how well established the Marvel Cinematic Universe is now.

The third in the Captain America series - although some might say it is more an Avengers movie that Captain America Movie - took $1.5 billion at the global box office.

Compared to 2015 this is far lower than Jurassic World which took $1.6 billion but is on par with the number 2 film Fast and Furious 7 with took $1.5 billion (for the record Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens took more but much of that was in 2016). Finding Dory is the second highest grossing film of 2016 with $1.027 billion while not very far behind it is Zootopia (Zootropolis) which took $1.026 billion.

Rounding out the top 5 is The Jungle Book and The Secret Life of Pets wich both took a shade under a billion each.

The top 2 films were both sequels and 6 of the top 10 films were either sequels or part of an already established franchise, and Deadpool at 7 although not part of a franchise is certainly part of the Marvel Superhero world.

Disney did very well this year with the top 4 film all being from the studio and it wouldn't surprise me if Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ended up in the top five film by the time it ends its run.

Four of the top 10 are superhero movies, four of the top ten have animals as their primary cast, 3 are animations (arguably 4) and 8 have sequels and further adventures in the series already announced. Thanks 2016 at the global box office, here is the full top 10.

  1. Captain America: Civil War - $1,153,304,495
  2. Finding Dory - $1,027,771,569
  3. Zootopia - $1,023,784,195
  4. The Jungle Book - $966,550,600
  5. The Secret Life of Pets - $875,457,937
  6. Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice - $873,260,194
  7. Deadpool - $783,112,979
  8. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - $748,820,251
  9. Suicide Squad - $745,600,054
  10. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story - $687,878,705

10th November 2016

There were plenty of contenders this last weekend that tried to topple the Marvel film Doctor Strange but none were good enough so the good doctor spends another week at the top.

A weekend gross of £3.4 million takes the films total UK gross to £15.7 million, very good indeed and on course to be one of the better Marvel Cinematic Universe films.

Coming in highest is The Accountant starring Ben Affleck, a debut weekend gross of £1.6 million brings it in at number 3.

There are 3 other new film this week, at 4 is a Street Cat Named Bob, at 5 is Nocturnal Animals and at number 6 is The Light Between Oceans.

Bridget Jones's Baby is the top total grossing film of the week with an incredible £46.1 million and its is also the longest running film at 8 weeks.
