9th November 2017

Kenneth Branagh this week scores another number one film with his take on the Agatha Christie classic Murder On The Orient Express, and in turn knock an old friend from the top of the box office.

Directed by and starring Branagh along with a whole host of other big names like Judi Dench, Michelle Pfeiffer and Johnny Depp the film makes its debut with a respectable £4.9 million.

This already makes it his 4th most successful film as a director and by the end of its run it will be most likely 3rd with just Thor and Cinderella out doing it.

As just mentioned Branagh directed the first in the Thor series of films as by coincidence his new film knocks the latest Thor from the top spot.

Thor Ragnorak this week falls only to number 2, and it gave Murder On The Orient Express a good run for its money as it comes in with £4.6 million which brings the total gross to £20 million and its now the most successful Thor film in the UK.

Thor Ragnorak is still pulling in the audience and on a Monday to Sunday bases it would have by a long distance been the top film of the week taking in £8.1 million.

Also new this week is A Bad Moms Christmas which despite trying to celebrate Christmas in November, far too early, takes in £1.7 million at number 3.

Pokmon The Movie I Choose You and The Killing of the Sacred Deer are also new at numbers 9 and 10 respectively.

Kingsman The Golden Circle is the top total grossing movie this week with £24 million and the longest running film with 7 weeks on the chart.

31st October 2017

Two big franchises chose this weekend to release their latest episodes and despite Jigsaw which is part of the Saw series doing well Thor: Ragnarok was the clear winner.

The Disney Marvel Cinematic Universe has become a mammoth series of films that simply cant be matched at the moment and the all star Avengers cars in Thor 3 (try saying that fast) debuts with an incredible £12.3 million making it the 47th top opening in the UK ever.

The film which stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor and is directed by exciting newcomer Taika Waititi joins the ever increasing lineup of Marvel movies and the ever increasing gross for Disney.

The future for the film looks good and, this is nearly double the opening of Thor: The Dark World which went on to gross £20 million so we could have a £35 - 40 million total UK gross.

New in the runner up position is the latest Saw film, this time by the name go Jigsaw, its actually the 8th Saw movie, and opens with £1.8 million.

This is a bit of a low for the series as the average opening for a Saw movie is about £2 - 3 million, but with Halloween this week it will see a boost, but then a big slump after, it could get to £5 million in total.

After a jump back to the top Blade Runner 2049 falls to number 5 with week with £0.6 million over the weekend, after 4 weeks of release this brings the films total to £17.4 million.

Also new this weekend was Breathe, a directorial debut from Andy Serkis starring former Spider-Man Andrew Garfield, it enters at number 8.

With Despicable Me 3 making a reappearance on the UK box office it is once again the longest running film with 17 weeks and the highest total grossing movie with £47.5 million .

26th October 2017

Blade Runner 2049 might not have set the box office on fire when it was released 3 weeks ago but it has managed something not many film do and go back to the top of the chart after being knocked off.

It was a relatively quiet weekend at UK cinemas and the Blade runner sequel took £1.8 million to go back on top, nearly 50% down on last weekend.

This means the film has now managed £12.7 million on its UK run, its hard to put this in context of the original movie which 3 weeks in had made £0.8 million.

If take inflated ticket prices into play then the original would have made £4.3 million at this stage so the sequel is over £10 million ahead.

Highest new film of the week, and despite the appalling reviews, is Geostorm starring Gerard Butler, which enters at number 2 with £1.6 million.

The weather disaster movie is a typical summer blockbuster movie so being released so late in the year probably meant the studio had little faith in the film.

Last weeks top film, The Lego Ninjago Movie, falls to number 3 this week with £1.3 million and a total gross so far of £5.5 million.

We have a change of longest running and top total grossing film this week with IT being around for 7 weeks and grossed a total of £32 million.

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.

15th August 2017

Christopher Nolan's War epic Dunkirk makes it an incredible 4 weeks at the top of the UK charts leaving Annabelle Creation to make its debut at number 2.

With a less than 50% drop in weekend grosses to £2.6 million Dunkirk has had an incredible journey so far at the box office, especially as the big money was on Annabelle taking the top spot this week.

This has brought the war dramas total gross in the UK to £ 44.7 million and it is now easily the second top grossing film of 2017, it won't get to the top as Beauty and The Beast is on £77.3 million.

The sequel and spin off series Annabelle Creation makes its debut at number 2, the film is a sequel to Annabelle but is part of the Conjuring series of films.

The aggressive marketing push has given the film a £1.9 million opening weekend, this is almost identical to the original film which went on to gross £7 million in the UK.

Also new this week is Atomic Blonde at number 3 with £8 million and The Nut Job 2 Nutty by Nature at number 10 with just over £354 thousand.

Longest run on the box office is Baby Driver which has been around for 7 weeks now while the top grossing film this week is Dunkirk.

14th June 2017

Tom Cruise has always been a film favourite at the UK box office having scored hit film after hit film, but his latest film The Mummy which must have seemed like a sure fire hit falls at number 2 this week.

It was a very close call in the end with The Mummy pulling in £3.3 million on its debut, if you compare this to Cruises last film Jack Reacher Never Go Back it is a million higher, but compared to his last franchise film Mission:Impossible Rogue Nation it is a couple of million shy.

Despite if this means the actor is starting to loose his sure fire hit status if you compare this The Mummy to the 1999 Brendan Fraser version of the film its about equal, and that nearly 20 years ago.

Remaining at the top for a second week, and by the thinest of margins is Wonder Woman which takes £3.4 million this weekend.

This brings the films total gross after 10 days of play to £12.8 million and well on track to be one of the highest grossing movies of the year.

Also new this week at number 5 is the Live Cinema event Take That Wonderland Live From The O2 with £1 million.

New at 6 is My Cousin Rachel while another event movie Peter Pan: NT Live 2017 is new at 11.

With Beauty and The Beast returning to the top 15 this week it becomes once again the top grossing movie with £72 million and the longest running film at 12 weeks.

5th June 2017

The time of Pirates of The Caribbean is over and the dawn of the DC universe is upon us as Wonder Woman, the first female led super hero movie, blasts onto the US box office.

A massive $100 million opening ensured that the film hit the top spot on its debut, and of course it grossed more than the rest of the US box office combined.

Unlike its spiritual predecessor, Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice, this movie was met with mostly favourable reviews by critics and audiences alike.

The $100 million plus opening gives Wonder Woman the third biggest of 2017 in America following Beauty and The Beast and Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2.

Falling hard from the top spot this week is Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men tell No Tales (as its called in America) and the film fell nearly 70% from last week to end up at number 3.

With a weekend gross of only $21.6 million on its second weekend could this mean an end to the pirate saga? The film has taken $114.6 million in total.

Also new this week is Captain Underpants from Dreamworks, based on the kids books the film lands at number 2 with $23.5 million.

On probably its last weekend on the US box office Beauty and The Beast is the longest running film with 12 weeks and the highest total grossing with just over $500 million.

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 couldnt 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.

15th May 2017

It was a weekend when everyone thought the big budget film King Arthur Legend of The Sword was going to dominate, Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 still took the crown and comedy Snatched come in highest on Mothers Day weekend.

Its the second weekend of release for Chris Pratt and director James Gunn and Guardians easily holds on to the top spot with a massive $63 million, 57% drop from last weeks debut.

This brings the films total gross from 10 day in cinemas to $246.1 million, its inline with other big Marvel films and well ahead if the first Guardians film.

Highest new film honour goes to Snatched starring Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn about a mother and daughter who get kidnapped in a foreign country, good timing to release on Mothers Day.

The film makes its debut in second place with a weekend gross of $17.5 million, although with mediocre reviews we could see this slip away quickly.

Directed by Guy Ritchie and with a massive $200 million+ budget the studio were hoping for a mega hit on their hands, but King Arthur Legend of The Sword has limed into US cinema in third with $14.7 million.

Beauty and the Beast is once again the longest running film on the US box office, 9 weeks now, and its the highest total grossing movie with nearly half a billion pound in takings.

9th May 2017

Second week of release for the Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 keeps it at the top with A Dogs Purpose coming in at 2 as the highest new film.

With a 50%+ drop in its weekend gross Guardians this week takes £6 million in its box office takings.

This takes the Chris Pratt starring movie to £27.4 million after 10 days of release, the film is current doing almost double the business of the original Guardians movie at this point.

Highest new film of the week is a little known comedy film called A Dogs Purpose, starring Dennis Quaid and directed by Lasse Hallstrom.

It was a US hit a month or so back and after taking £1.3 million on its debut is set to become a hit on this side of the Atlantic as well.

Also new this week is Sleepless at number 6, MIndhorn at number 8 and Unlocked at number 10, a low grossing top 10 this week means all these film took less than half a million on their debut.

This weeks longest stay on the chart is Get Out which has been around for 8 week while top new film is once again Beauty and The Beast which has now taken £71 million and is the 8th top film ever in the UK.

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.

8th May 2017

When there is a new Marvel film in town the all others distributers give the film a wide berth, and with the Chris Pratt and Zoe Seldana headed Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 the big film nothing else stood a chance.

With an opening gross of $145 million on its debut if nothing stood in its path, the Guardians franchise has become one of Marvels biggest properties and Vol 2 opens over 50% more than the first film.

It is also the 15th consecutive film to debut at number one for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and with a good roster of films going forward there will be no letup.

Falling to number 2 after 3 weeks at the top is The Fate of the Furious (Fast and Furious 8) which takes a still respectable $8.5 million this week which brings its total gross in America to $207 million.

With the release of a Marvel film nothing else dare even think about opening and so there are no other new film this week.

Longest running film and highest total grossing movie on the US box office this week is Beauty and the Beast which is at number 5 this week, has been released for 8 weeks and grossed $487 million.

2nd May 2017

The Marvel unsung heroes (outside of Deadpool) have gained a massive following since the release of the first film and the inevitable sequel was always going to be a massive blockbuster.

Landing at the top of this weeks UK box office Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 takes a fantastic £13 million making it the 41 highest debut ever, behind The Inbetweeners Movie and head of The Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers.

The original Guardians of The Galaxy opened to £6.3 million in 2014, good for an untried new franchise, this film had bigger hype and has gained a loyal following and more than doubles the debut gross.

With favourable reviews and stars Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana at the top of their games, and with the best hero at the cinema in Baby Groot were looking at a £40 - £50 million total gross.

Falling from the top after 2 weeks if Fast and Furious 8, a £1.7 million 3rd weekend means that the film has now taken £26 million, it will struggle now to catch up with Fast and Furious 7.

Also new this week is Baahubali 2 The Conclusion at number 6 with £0.4 million, The Promise at number 9 with £178,000 and Lady McBeth at number 10 with £174,000.

Sing re-entered the chart this week and at 9 weeks is the longest running film while Beauty and The Beast is the highest total grossing movie with £70 million, its the 8th UK top film ever.

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.

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.

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.

Disney now have 13 films which have grossed over a billion dollars at the global box office.

18th April 2017

There was never going to be any other result to this week US box office number 1 and without any problem at all The Fate of the Furious (Fast and Furious 8 in the UK) makes its debut at the top with a $100 million opening.

The series has gone from strength to strength and with the sad passing of one of its stars last year it cast doubt if the series would survive, but when 7 scored over a billion at the world box office a sequel was inevitable.

Fate takes $98.7 million this weekend and as you'd expect with that figure takes more than the rest of the US box office combined.

The Boss Baby falls to number 2 this week after a couple of week at the top, this week takings are $16 million over the weekend.

The films total gross after 3 weeks of play now sits at $116 million and has proved another $100 million plus film for Fox's animated studio.

Beauty and The Beast is doing fantastic business still and this week is at 3, it is currently the highest total grossing film on the chart with $454 million.

Former number 1 film Get Out is the longest running film and has been on the box office for 8 weeks now and has grossed $167 million.

4th April 2017

There is still no stopping the live action Beaty and The Beast as it holds off Scarlett Johansson in Ghost in The Shell as the manga adaptation debuts at number 2.

On its third weekend at the top of the UK box office Beauty and The Beast takes £6.7 million, yet again another excellent weekend gross.

This brings the films total gross to a fantastic £51 million over its 3 week UK release and by far makes it the top film of the year.

Making its debut in second place this week is the live action adaptation of the 1996 Manga film Ghost in The Shell.

Taking a relatively good £2.3 million the film has done well, but with the hype and mainly positive reviews we could have been looking at higher.

Maybe the film will be a slow burner and with many teens on Easter holidays this could do well over the coming weeks.

I'm sure its not escaped your attention that the top 2 films this week are live action versions of classic animations.

Also new this week is Smurfs The Lost Village at number 3 with £1.3 million, this film will do well in the next couple of weeks and could challenge Beauty and The Beast for the top spot.

Free Fire is at number 7 and the special cinema event in aid of Comic Relief Peter Kays Car Share A Second Series Celebration lands at number 10, and it was only shown in one cinema chain.

Many long running films are not around anymore hence the longest running film this week is Logan which has been around 5 weeks while Beauty and The Beast is the top grossing movie.

Audiences across the UK can't get enough of Belle and her beast as the Disney live action films scores a fantastic second weekend, Power rangers is the top new film at number 2.

A second weekend gross of £12.3 million for Beauty and The Beast is something most films would be happy to have as their debut weekend gross and would be in the top 100 highest grossers.

This brings the films total gross over 10 days to nearly £40 million and makes it the top grossing film of the year so far, overtaking La La Land.

With this type of momentum there is a chance it could end up being the top film of the year, although there are some big hitters coming later and a massive film at the tend of the year.

Power Rangers make their debut at number 2 this week in their revamped, re-booted, big budget incarnation to the tune of £1.5 million.

There was one other Power Rangers movie, back in 1995, based on the TV show it had the full title of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers The Movie and debuted in the UK to the tune of £1.3 million.

If we take inflation into account the 1995 film did far better and would today have debuted to the tune of £3.2 million.

Worth noting is that if the chart were counted for the whole week rather than just Friday - Sunday Power Rangers would have been at number 5 this week.

Also new this week is The Lost City of Z debuting at 7 with £0.28 million and CHiPs at number 8 with £0.2 million.

Longest running film this week is The Lego Batman Movie which has been around now for 7 weeks and the top grossing movie, after just 10 days is Beauty and The Beast.

Beaty and the Beast live action is still by far the top film in the US for the films second weekend of release with the highest new film Power Rangers which manages a number 2 debut.

A drop of only 50% week on week gross for Beauty and the Beast means the film takes in its second weekend $88 million.

The film total gross therefore powers on to a massive $317 million in America which gives it the target of becoming the 4th larget film ever stateside.

Disney are powering away with hit after hit at the moment and with the likes of Star Wars, Marvel, its animation studio and live action film there is no stopping them.

Making its debut at number 2 this week is the highly anticipated re-boot of the Power Rangers franchise which has moved from cheesy TV show to bug budget movie.

21st March 2017

Disney have done well in recent years with their live action versions of classic cartoons and this week the best of all animations gets the treatment and Beauty and The Beast opens to a massive debut.

Taking nearly £20 million on its first weekend of release it is the 8th top weekend in the UK of all time and is the highest opening outside of a franchise film.

It will be interesting to see if this is just that the animation is considered one of Disneys ultimate classics, or if the public are simply enjoying these live conversions.

Its hard comparing this to the 1992 original as its been 25 years but that film took £8.4 million on its opening, and took £20 million in total.

Adjusting for inflation the 1992's opening would be about £22 million with a total of about £52 million, potentially very similar to this live action remake.

Falling to number 2 this week is Kong: Skull Island, a £2.7 million second weekend brigs the films total to £11 million, the film is running just above its stablemate Godzilla.

Also new this week is American horror hit Get Out which lands at number 3 this week with a better than expected £2.1 million.

Longest running film on the UK box office this week is Lion starring Dev Patel which has now been around for 9 weeks while the highest total grossing movie is Sing which is still at 7 and has now grossed £28 million.
