31st December 2017

Top films globally in 2017: Beauty and the Beast top the global box office in 2017

2017 at the global box office was a story of remakes, sequels and superheroes where a beauty and a beast in live action was the top film of the year while the 8th Furious film wasn't far behind.

Beauty and the Beast, the live action version, was the top at the global box office during 2017 helping Disney to be, by a long way, the biggest studio of 2017 with 6 of the top 10 films coming from the mouse house.

Universal also did well in the runner up spot with Fast and Furious 8 and Despicable Me 3 at 2 and 3 as the long established series bucked a trend of diminished returns for sequels throughout the year.

Warner did well with the DC cinematic universe and the horror hit IT filling in the lower end of the list although Justice League failed to make the top 10 (although it is still on general release at the end of 2017).

Here is the top 10 films of 2017 across the globe.

  1. Beauty and the Beast - $1.2 billion
  2. Fast and Furious 8 - $1.23 billion
  3. Despicable Me 3 - $1.03 billion
  4. Star Wars: The Last Jedi - $953.36 million
  5. Spider-Man Homecoming - $880.16 million
  6. Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 - $863.73 million
  7. Thor: Ragnorak - $847.32 million
  8. Wonder Woman - $821.84 million
  9. Pirates Of The Caribbean: Salazars Revenge - $794.86
  10. IT - $698.06

18th October 2017

With the slow box office of Blade Runner 2049 the UK chart sees a new number 1 in the shape of The Lego Ninjago Movie, but it was a battle for the top.

Its the third movie based on the lego franchise and each one has made its debut at the top, but The Lego Ninjago Movie has done so with the lowest opening.

With £3.6 million there is the feeling that the general public are starting to get used to seeing the Lego franchise on the big screen and are maybe waiting for home video before watching.

Regardless this is still a number one film and with a sequel to the original Lego Movie coming soon you can imagine that being a box office hit as well.

Blade Runner 2049 falls from the top to number 2 this week, but with a £3 million weekend it fought hard to stay on top.

The full week gross was £6.1 million so it easily was the top film of the week, the total gross currently sits at £12.1 million.

Also new this week is The Snowman at number 3 with a weekend gross of £1.3 million and Botoks is new at 5 with nearly £0.8 million.

The Ritual is new at number 7 with and the highly acclaimed movie Loving Vincent is new at number 9, Sally Potter just creeps into the top 10 at 10 as The Party makes its debut.

Despicable Me 3 has now been on the box office for 16 weeks and has a total gross of £47 million.

The Stephen King adaptation from Warner Bros. is doing great business at the world box office and has now taken $371.3 million in total and should get to $500 million easily.

top total grossing movie on the top 10 this week is Spider-Man Homecoming which this week takes its total global gross to $861.2 million after a $16 million week from 44 countries.

13th September 2017

This week marks a bit of a mile stone in film global grosses, Despicable Me 3 goes over $1 billion, the first of the series to do so, this means now the top 30 top global grossing movies have all grossed over $1 Billion.

The first movie to do so was Titanic back in 1998 and was the only film to do so for a long time, that film had another bite of the cherry in 2012 and its gross is now over $2 billion.

The next film to do it was The Lord of The Rings: The Return of The King in 2003, since then we have had at least one film a year do the fate.

The oldest film to go over $1 Billion is Jurassic Park from 1993, but again that had another go in 2011 which pushed it over the mark, Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace similarly did the same.

To date only 3 film have gone to $2 Billion, Avatar (the top grossing movie of all time), Titanic and Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The next milestone will be the top 50 all over a billion, which at the current rate will be some time in 2020/21, and then of course we look forward to the next Star Wars film going over the $2 Billion mark!.

1st August 2017

China ruled the global box office this week as the mega hit Wolf Warrior II had one of the biggest openings in China this year, second only to Fat and Furious 8.

With $125.9 million from only 5 countries, Wolf Warrior II directed by and starring Wu Jing, has a country average of an incredible $25.1 million.

The films total global gross so far is $142 million after a soft launch last week.

Dunkirk falls to second place this week with $73.7 million from 64 countries for a country average of $1.1 million.

This brings the films global total to a respectable $234.1, it should break the $300 million by next weekend.

Highest new film of the week is The Emoji Movie which lands at number 6 with $25.6 million from just the one country, America, which on a country average would put it ahead of the number 1 film by half a million dollars.

Despicable me 3 is the highest total grossing global hit on the top 10 with $819.2 million so far and is at number 3 this week.

17th July 2017

The apes were no competition for the spider as Spider-Man Homecoming holds on to the top of the global box office for a second week.

With a $117.5 million week from 64 countries the Marvel version of the popular franchise hold the top spot beating all competition with relative ease.

This brings the films total global gross to $469 million and the film is set to go over half a billion this week, a billion could be a stretch though.

War For The Planet of The Apes is the top new film at 2 with $102.5 million from 62 countries and a 55% 45% split from US to rest of the world.

This is the series finale and despite not taking as much as the previous film this is still on track to be another winner for the much loved series.

Highest total grossing film on the global box office this week is Wonder Woman which has now taken an incredible $764.8 million.

10th July 2017

Across the globe this week Spider-Man Homecoming makes its debut at the top with a global gross of $257 million from 57 countries.

The first Spider-Man film to be released into the MCU the film also stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man which seems to have broadened the appeal of the film.

The film did well in the US taking $117 million but took $140 million on the international markets with South Korea leading the way.

Despicable Me 3 fell from the top to number 2 this week with $172.9 million from 61 countries, this brings the film total global gross to $447.5 million.

Wonder Woman is at number 4 this week and is the highest total grossing film globally, it has now grossed $745 million and is still showing in 65 countries.

Worth a mention if The House That Never Dies II, only released in 1 country it sits at number 6 this week with $14 million.

Cars 3 this week falls to number 8, with a total gross of $193 million globally it could well end up as the lowest grossing Pixar movie to date.

3rd July 2017

After a release last week in some smaller location Despicable Me 3 gets its wider global release and tops the chart in the process.

Diminishing returns for the series means the third film gets the lowest wide release of the series but it still manages a $171 million for the week from 53 countries.

This brings the films total global gross to $192.3 million, well below the other films in the series and with Despicable Me 2 grossing just under a billion dollars and Minions taking $1.1 billion this one could fall way short.

Transformers: The Last Knight made its debut at the top last week but this week falls to number 2, small $85 million week gross from 45 countries takes the films total to $429.9 million.

Baby Driver this week goes to 17 countries sits at number 4 with $27.8 million which brings the films total gross to $36.8 million.

Highest new film of the week is The House starring Will Farrell and Amy Poehler which debuts at 9 with $11.7 million from 21 countries.

Wonder Woman is the top total grossing film of the week, currently at number 3 its taken $707.9 million in world grosses.

26th June 2017

This week a new Transformers film was released, Transformers The Last Knight starring Mark Wahlberg and Sir Anthony Hopkins, and it easily beats all others to the top.

With diminishing returns happening for the series across the world the big champion for the series is China where the previous Transformers film was the top grossing American film ever and this film opened big.

Transformers The Last Knight takes $241.5 million on its debut of which over 75% comes from a non US market, the film is released in 42 countries.

Cars 3 falls to number 3 on its second weekend of release, and like Transformers the series is seeing diminishing returns for the successful series of films.

The film weekly take is $37 million from 27 countries which brings its total to $141 million, on a positive note it is not yet released in many countries who have not yet hit their school summer holidays.

The top total grossing movie on this weeks global top 10 is Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazars Revenge which is still released in 56 countries and has a global gross of $677.8 million.

12th June 2017

The release of a new Tom Cruise film its bound to make some waves and The Mummy makes its debut at the top of the global box office this week with a $175 million opening.

Domestically (in America) the film has not gone down that well with a $32.2 million debut, but internationally the film has and takes $141.8 million, the film is opened in 64 countries this week.

Compared to previous Cruise movies this is a low take, the reviews have not been that favourable and it must be a bit worrying to Universal as this is supposed to be the first of a new universe of movies.

Wonder Woman slips to number 2 this week, still doing good business it takes $115.2 million from 58 countries which brings the Gal Gadot film to $435.2 million in global takings.

The film is still getting good word of mouth and it has really kicked the DC Universe into gear, it will be interesting to see for Justice League performs later this year.

The rest of the top 5 has Pirates of the Caribbean 5 at number 3 with $45 million, Baywatch at number 4 with $15 million and Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie at number 5 with $14 million.

5th June 2017

As Warner Bros. unleash the next film in its expanding DC Universe hopes are high that Wonder Woman will kick it into high gear, and with a $223 million opening from 56 countries it can be considered a success.

With man of Steel and Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice not really setting the box office alight the way many had hoped we now have the DC movie the fans have been longing for as Wonder Woman pleases critics and fans alike.

After a week atop the global box office last week Pirates of The Caribbean: Salazars Revenge falls to number 2 with $95.4 million from 55 countries, the films tepid reception with critics and fans has done the film no favours and it cant compete with a superhero juggernaut.

We will have to see if this means a slow down or end to the series, Disney has got used to $1 billion plus grosses for the series and this will most likely come no-where near that figure at the film reaches the half billion mark globally.

Making a decent debut at number 4 is Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, $24.2 million from 9 countries isn't bad for a film with little hype.

15th May 2017

Marvel are a power house not to be messed with, although this weekend Warner Bros. though it would have a go and failed miserably and King Arthur Legend of The Sword couldn’t tough Guardians of The Galaxy at the global box office.

With $115.2 million from 57 countries this week Guardians easily retains its position as top film, this gross means that the film has gone past the half billion mark and has now taken $630.5 million after 3 weeks.

King Arthur did manage second place, although only just, with $43.8 million from 52 countries, but considering the amount of hype the film has had Warner would have been hoping for far more.

Released in 34 countries Alien Covenant marks its debut at number 3, the hotly anticipated film from Ridley Scott didn't get a US release but did make a show in much of Europe.

Nearly beating King Arthur the film takes $42 million for the week despite getting for less than favourable reviews from critics, its US release is this coming weekend which will be a big test.

There is a bit of a battle going on between Fast and Furious 8 and Beauty and The Beast for top film of the spring season and at the moment Beast is winning with $1.2 Billion total gross.

8th May 2017

Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 opened up is a number of major territories this week and duly remains at the top of the global box office.

The James Gunn directed film starring Chris Pratt got its US debut this week and with release in 56 countries takes $268.8 million on its second week.

This pushed the films total global gross to $427.6 million, well on its way to a billion, this first Guardians film made $774 million and this could make the extra quarter of a billion to be yet another Marvel film to make the mark.

Showing great promise is Baahubali 2 The Conclusion which this week is at number 2 with $47 million from 11 countries, this pushes the film total gross to $147 million.

Two film on the top 5 this have grossed over a billion, Fast and Furious 8 at number 3 has taken $1.158 billion and Beauty and The Beast has now taken $1,185 billion and is at 5 this week.

There are no new entries on the global box office this week, no surprise with the wider release of Guardians this week.

1st May 2017

With the release of Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 we see a new film taking over at the top as the Marvel film takes over from Fast and Furious 8.

Released globally but not yet in America the films which has gained a massive following after the first film takes $101.2 million on its debut, largely from the UK, Brazil and Australia.

Guardians 2 this week is released in 37 countries so still has much of the globe to go so expect the gross to ballon over the coming weeks and a $1 billion gross is on the cards.

Fast and Furious 8 this week made it over the $1 billion mark and became the top American film ever released in China, edging out Fast and Furious 7 from the top.

The film currently sits at number 2 on the global box office with a weekly gross of $87.7 million from 67 countries most of which is from the non-American market.

Also making an impressive show this week is Shock Wave which takes $24.4 million from 4 countries, mainly China, and is at number 4 this week.

Highest total grossing movie on across the globe this week is Beauty and The Beast which has now grossed an incredibly $1.14 billion.

1st May 2017

As the film pushed itself over the billion mark at the global box office Fast and Furious 8 (The Fate of the Furious in America) hold the top spot for a third weekend.

Fast 8 drops nearly 50% of its taking from last week and this week manages ‘just’ $19.4 million to bring its US total to $192.7 million.

Highest new film of the week is How To Be A Latin Lover which is new at number 2 with a good $12 million debut.

For a smaller independent film this is a great opening, it did play to a largely latin American audience which is to be expected.

Also new this week is Baahubali 2: The Conclusion which is new at 3 with $10 million and Emma Watson and Tom Hanks in The Circle which disappoints with a number 4 debut and $9.3 million.

Highest total grossing movie on the US box office this week is Beauty and The Beast which has now grosses nearly $500 million, it is also the longest running film with 7 weeks on the chart.

The highest new global film this week is Unforgettable which enters at number 7 with $6.5 million from its 17 countries.

24th April 2017

With a massive opening last weekend no studio was going to try and compete with The Fate of the Furious for a couple of week and hence the film stays at the top for a second weekend.

Dropping a considerable 60% from last week the Fast and Furious 8 (to give it the UK name) takes $38 million on its second weekend of release.

This brings the films total to a fantastic $163.6 million in the US and it keeps it on tract to s very similar gross to the previous films.

Highest new film of the week is Disney’s wild life documentary Born in Chine, about pandas, which is released to coincide with the global Earth Day celebration.

Also new this week is Unforgettable at number 7 with $4.8 million and The promise which debuts at number 9 with $4 million.

Beauty and the Beast is once again the top total grossing movie this week with $472 million and with 6 weeks on the chart is also the longest running film.

18th April 2017

We all though we were going to have to look at the new Star Wars film at the end of the year to see the world debut gross record broken, but this week Fast and Furious 8 manages to do it.

Star Wars; The Force Awakens made its debut with $529 million at the global box office, thats without a Chinese release, this week Fast and Furious 8 debuts with $532 million, but with a massive Chinese release.

The series has grown in strength over the years and now like the Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars and Wizzarding World films (to name a few) these film are expected to go over the billion dollar make at the world box office.

F8 will go one to match number 7 and make a billion in the coming weeks and with 9 and 10 around the corner the Fast and Furious series is a force to be reckoned with.

Last weeks top film falls to number 2 this week as The Boss baby takes $52 million over the week and has now grossed $287 million in total globally.

Beauty and The Beast live action has now gone well over a billion globally and this week is at number 3 with a total gross of $1.04 billion.

Logan has a massively wide release in 82 countries and duly makes a massive $287.8 million across the globe, more than 8 times more than the film at number 2.

With such a good start to its box office run, and great reviews Logan could go on to be one of the biggest X-Men films in the series.

The global box office is still being dominated by Rogue One: A Star Wars Story which is now in its fourth week of release.

Still playing in 58 countries the film takes $78 million this week which brings the film total gross to $914 million.

It should now reach the magic Billion mark before next week which means it will be the third Star Wars film to do so.

With the awards ceremonies happening at the moment most film got a release, if only minor, before the end of 2016 so there are no new released this week, although Hidden Figures which is still only out in America makes a massive jump up to 6 this week.

Rogue One is by far the highest total grossing film across the globe this week while Assassin's Creed which is at number 2 this week with $48.8 million is the widest release in 69 countries.

3rd January 2017

Although its had a slower start than Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens last year, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is still doing really across the globe.

Now in its third week of release, and with a slow Christmas period to contend with, the star Wars film took $95.1 million from 56 countries over the new year period which brings its total global gross to an excellent $774.9 million.

The film is on track to hit the magic $1 billion which will be the third Star Wars film to do so (although it took Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace a number of re-releases) and the 12th Disney movie to do so.

Another note of interest, the total gross of Rogue One now means that the Star Wars films and the most successful series of films ever, beating the James Bond series.

There are no new releases on the global front this week, blame Christmas, but there should be a wealth of them next week and things get back to normal.

31st December 2016

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

20th December 2016

With the global release of any Star Wars films its going to feel like the world stops with baited breath watching how the film will perform, and this week is no different with the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

In the end Rogue One opens in the UK to £17 million, a very good opening and a shade above fellow splinter film Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.

When compared to Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens it doesn't compare, it is about half of the opening gross from this time last year, not surprising as there is less anticipation and this is Star Wars in uncharted territory.

There can be no complaining though, like Fantastic Beasts, we are going to get more of these films and as they find their feet and get fans then the grosses will grow and grow.

Fantastic Bests falls from the top after 4 weeks at number 1 to 3 and a weekend gross of £1.4 million, it is less than £10,000 behind the number 2 film Moana.

It has now taken £45 million in the UK and is the 39th top grossing film of all time.

With the new Star Wars film there were no other new films this week hitting the chart.

Longest running film this week is Trolls which has been around for 9 weeks and highest total grossing movie is Fantastic Beasts.

6th December 2016

Disney/Pixar's high profile sequel Finding Dory makes its debut at the top of the UK home video chart this week knocking off The BFG.

Finding Dory has been a massive hit for the animated coupling of Disney and Pixar this year, on its release on 29th July 2016 it hit the top of the UK box office.

It has a massive first weekend gross of £8.1 million on its first weekend, its stay at the top only lasted for a single weekend initially.

After falling to 2 it then went back to the top for 2 weeks on 19th August before finally making a slow decent down the box office.

It spent 14 weeks on the top 15 before disappearing from cinemas but in the time it took at incredible £42.6 million making it the 41st top grossing movie ever in the UK, its it currently the fourth top grossing movie of 2016.

Across the globe it is the 23rd to grossing movie of all time with a global total gross of $1.026 billion.

5th December 2016

This week at the global box office Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them manages to spend a third week as the top film in the world while top new film is Underworld: Blood Wars.

Fantastic Beasts this week goes over the Half Billion mark as it grosses $79 globally from 68 countries for the week bringing its total $608 million.

At this rate the film should go over the $1 Billion mark, but with a new Star Wars film coming out in a week time this could effect the final tally as arguable they are vying for similar markets.

Highest new film of the week, sort of, is Underworld: Blood Wars which takes $16.3 million from 51 countries.

The film had previously made just over $2.5 million but this is the first week it has gone wide and made an appearance on the top 10.

Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them is the widest release and the top total grossing movie on the chart this week.

28th November 2016

Rounding out November of 2016 with another good weekend at the global box office is Fantastic beasts and Where To Find Them which on its third week makes $177.1 million from 68 countries.

This brings the films total gross to $473.7 million and it wont be long before the film crosses the half a billion mark in global takings.

It might struggle though to make its way to the $1 billion mark though as the film is not yet climbing the heights experienced by the Harry Potter series and many die hard Potter fans are not warming to the new adventures.

Highest new film of the week is Disney's Moana which makes its debut at number 2 with $71 million from 13 countries, it hits most other countries this coming Friday.

Interestingly although the film did well in America China did not do so well with the film only taking $12 million.

Fantastic Beasts is still the film released in the most number of countries and Doctor Strange has the highest total gross on the top 10 this week with $617 million in global takings.

21st November 2016

The release of a new era in the Wizarding World was always going to be a big event, and as Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them makes is cinematic debut it goes straight to number 1 at the global box office.

Despite taking $75 million (£60 million) in America the film did very well in Europe especially here in the UK where it took $18 million (£14 million).

With most of the world going to the cinema to see how JK Rowling would continue her fantasy world Doctor Strange fell off the top to number 2 with $43.6 million (£35 million).

This brings the films total gross after 4 weeks of play to $571 million (£463 million), the film is still released in 54 countries.

Highest new film of the week is Arrival which lands at number 3 on the global box office, Trolls stays at number 2 this week.

Arrival on its debut takes $34 million from 26 countries, after the hype and the very good reviews and audience feedback a bigger opening might have been expected, but this could be a grower and hang around for a while.

Doctor Strange is the highest total grossing movie on the box office this week but Trolls at number 2 is the widest release in 69 countries.

7th November 2016

With a global take of around $50 million Inferno easily ranks as the top film globally on its debut around the world where it has been released in 53 countries.

Highest total grossing film on the global box office this week is Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children which this week is at 2 with $32 million from 73 countries and has grossed $196.7 million.

Worth of mention is The Age of Shadows which was the highest debuting film last week, still only out in South Korea and climbs to number 3 this week globally with $21.5 million.

Clint Eastwood and Tom Hanks dominate the world box office this week as their true life drama Scully easily dominates.

A very quiet week at the global box office as Scully manages to top with just $45 million from 40 counties, $35 of that from America.

For such an American centric film thats not a surprise and it is still to be released in many countries, Europe is a big Hanks fan to expect a big boost when released there.

Coming in new at 3 is the 2016 remake of Ben-Hur which takes $22 million on its debut week of release from 24 countries.

The film has got very low keys reviews in America which could effect its gross in other countries when released and might sink quite fast.

Other new film this week are War Dogs at 4 and Kubo And The Two Strings at 10 from 9 countries .

Highest total grossing film on this weeks global box office is The Secret Life Of Pets, still at 2 with $674 million and still released in 54 countries.

16th August 2016

The UK video chart this week has Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice stay at the top for a second week.

With the film not performing as well as expected at the box office and Warner Bros. releasing an extended version of video the film is selling really well.

Highest new film then lands at number 2 in the shape of Eddie the Eagle, a film released in the UK on April 8th 2016.

The film loosely based on the life of British Olympic ski jumper Eddie Edwards landed at number 2 on the box office help off the top spot by the Batman V Superman film.

This week at the global box office Warner Bros. Suicide Squad makes a fantastic debut raking in $267.1 million.

The film had a very wide release showing up in 58 countries, one of the largest of any film at the moment, and the US led the way with nearly half that gross, the UK was second.

Normally with such a large opening we would be looking at a long term run and large gross, but this year has proved that big opening weeks don't necessarily mean long cinema runs.

Jason Bourne falls from the top this week quite hard and from 51 counties has a weekly gross of $43 million, the total gross is now $195 million.

Worthy of a mention is Chinese film Time Raiders which opens in just 1 country, China, and manages to land at 3 with $64.6 million.

Finding Dory is still the top total grossing movie on the global box office having taken a total of $870.2 million to date, the billion mark is looking unlikely, but Disney now have the top 4 grossing film of 2016.

America led the way and create just over half of the global box box office gross for the movie, the total was 110 million, far greater the last film in the series The Bourne Legacy.

This is a good start for the fifth film in the series and fourth starring Matt Damon and with positive reviews it should see the film gross some impressive numbers.

Falling from the top is Star Trek Beyond, which like its predecessor had a strong opening weekend but a heavy second frame.

The film took $37 million this week from 41 countries to bring its total gross to $160.5 million, and with much of the films gross bound to be front loaded this could mean trouble for the franchise.

Its a softer debut than Star Trek or sci-fi is used to despite good reviews and seemingly a better film then the last one but a $89.6 million debut from 38 countries is strong enough to see it dominate.

On its debut week of release the 2016 Ghostbusters reboot takes $65.1 million dollars from just 4 countries.

An excellent result for the female led Ghostbusters movie, although good reviews have helped and the marketing push to banish the negativity has certainly helped.

The Secret Life of Pets is still doing big numbers across the globe and this week despite falling to number 2 grosses $54.9 million bringing its total gross to $253.9 from 10 countries.

Highest total grossing film on the global box office this week is Finding Dory, the Disney/Pixar movie has to date grossed $721.7 million.

The film now has a global gross of $145,772,440 but has many more territories to open in so expect that to climb.

Finding Dory is holding strong at number 2 with $50 million this week, its global gross has risen to 624.1 million from 41 countries, it is also the highest total grossing movie on the top 10.

China is one of the largest cinema going countries in the world and this week from its release in a single territory - China - Cold War 2 takes an amazing $44 million and is at number 4 this week.

Highest new film of the week is The Legend of Tarzan which shows up in 20 countries and has a debut gross of $56.9 million.

The week had a number of new releases but with the good weather and holidays throughout the world nothing managed to capture the market, or maybe it was the lack of summer blockbuster?

From Disney/Marvel is the the plot synopsis for Avengers Age of Ultron which is released in the UK on 25th April 2015.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Marvel Studios presents "Avengers: Age of Ultron," the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth's Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.

With a membership that is getting ever longer by each year the latest Transformers movie has now taken over $1 Billion in global box office takings.

Transformers Age of Extinction has performed well in Europe and America where most of the films on the list make their money, but where it has really shone is in China where it has become the biggest film ever.

There are now 18 films that have made over a billion but still only 2 that have taken over $2 Billion, the James Cameron duo of Avatar and Titanic.

Of the other 16 most notable are Frozen which is the top animated movie Batman which has 2 films on the list, Middle earth which has 2, one of the Lord of the Rings films and the first Hobbit film, Skyfall which the is top British film, unless you count Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.

Possibly by the end of the year we'll have a top 20 of $1 Billion grossing movies, although the films with the best possibilities, The Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 could miss the mark and we'll have to wait for Avengers Age of Ultron and Jurassic World next year?

29th July 2014

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes holds off the challenge of Hercules, The Purge Anarchy and Earth to Echo to keep the top spot at the UK box office for another week.

Now in it's second weekend of release Dawn of the Apes easily hangs on to the top spot with a weekend take of £3.7 million, this brings it's total gross to £17 million after 10 days of release.

Highest new film of the week is Dwayne Johnson in a retelling of Hercules, an all out action film rather than historical retelling of the Greek myth it's directed by Brett Ratner.

Hercules took a gross of £1.5 million on it's opening weekend, it has a long was to go to even be one of Johnson's best films as he's been part of the Fast and Furious series and The Mummy series.

Likewise Brett Ratner has been part of the X-Men series and directed the 2 Rush Hour movies, and also directed a Hannibal Lector film, all high grossing franchises.

Hercules could sink quite fast especially with some of the new releases coming in the next few weeks which will be ultimately bigger box office hits.

There are plenty of other new releases this week in the form of
The Purge Anarchy at 3
Earth to Echo at 6
Kickat 8
The House of Magic at 10

This time last year new at the top was The Wolverine based on the X-Men universe which topped on it's debut knocking Monsters University into 2nd.

Five years ago Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince was still at the top in it's second week and The Proposal with Sandra Bullock was new at 2.

Ten years ago Spider-Man 2 held onto the top spot for a second week with the highest new film being Thunderbirds at 3.

Fifteen years ago it was Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace holding onto the top spot for a second week, and with nothing daring to open up in the wake of such a big film the highest new film was Hindustan Ki Kasam at 10.
