2018 was another year at the US box office where Disney dominated with their Marvel franchise and Pixar hit while there was a sprinkling of Dinosaurs and a Deadpool for good measure.

<span class='highlight-purple'><i>Black</i></span> Panther

Black Panther

The top film in the US in 2018 was the critically acclaimed Black Panther which was released in February and grossed over $700 million during its box office run.

Avengers Infinity War

As if that wasn't enough Disney also took the second spot of 2018 with Avengers Infinity War which was released in April and took an amazing $678 million at the US box office.

Incredibles 2

And again as if that wasn't enough for Disney they also managed the third highest grossing movie of 2018 with their Pixar studio film Incredibles 2 which was released in June and grossed over $608 million.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Universal took the 2018 number 4 slot in the US with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and despite the fact that it took over $400 million in the US it was far from the 3 Disney hits above it.

Deadpool 2

Finally on the top five hits of 2018 in the US is the Fox property Deadpool 2 which took $324 million, interestingly Fox's movie devision is about to be acquired by Disney, and the film had a second dip of the box office over the holiday period.

Disney's Marvel domination is set to continue into 2019 with more high profile releases, and despite the lack of any Star Wars movies (another Disney property) on this list the anticipation for 2019's Episode IX is already growing.

Here is the top 10 film of 2018 at the US box office.

  10. Venom - $212 million

23rd December 2018

The Men in Black series is getting a reboot, and although the Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones team-up was excellent its maybe time to give this fun series a refresh.

The new film called Men In Black International (no were not too keen on the name) stars Rebecca Ferguson and Chris Hemsworth and is directed by F. Gary Gray, so there is hope it will be good.

The new trailer is fairly run of the mill MIB stuff but its enjoyable, released on 14th June 2019 check out the trailer below.

23rd October 2018

With the press tour and good reviews the new 2018 Halloween sequel dominates the US nox office on its debut weekend while A Star Is Born has to stay at 2 and Venom tumbles to 3.

A Star Is Born

Halloween

Its been 40 years since the first Halloween directed by John Carpenter, Jamie Lee Curtis stared in that film as a school girl terrorised by Micheal Myers, this film shows Myers coming back to terrorise her again and dragas her family along for the ride.

The film has had great reviews and makes its US debut at number 1 with $77.5 million, becoming the highest grossing debut for a horror film.

This will by far become the top grossing film in the series for which this is the 9th entry.

A Star Is Born

The film just can't make it to the top of the US box office and this week stays at number 3 for a third straight weekend.

This week it takes $19.3 million which boosts its total US gross to $126.3 million.

Venom

After 2 weeks at the top the Sony marvel movie falls to number 3 this week with 18.1 million to boosts its total to $171.1 million.

Goosebumps 2 Haunted Halloween

The Jack Black starring film falls to number 4 this week with $9.7 million which brings its total gross after 2 weeks to $28.8 million.

First Man

Perhaps performing not as well as expected the film falls to number 5 this week with $8.5 million, this brings the films total gross to $30 million.

9th October 2018

There were three new entries at the top of this weeks UK box office in the shape of Venom, A Star Is Born and Johnny English Strikes Again, but it was Sony's Villain Hero film which took top honors.

Johnny English Strikes Again

Venom

The Tom Hardy starring film dominated what was a busy weekend at the UK box office with an £8 million debut which is good for a Marvel movie in the Spider-Man universe, and only a million off that of Spider-Man Homecoming from last year.

This of course is not from the MCU despite leaning heavily on the look and feel of a typical Marvel film, but as with Suicide Squad from last year this proves that villains can hold their own in a movie despite poor reviews.

Johnny English Stikes Again

The third in the Johnny English series of film and it looks like the Rowan Atkinson starring James Bond Spoof has lost none of its appeal as it makes its debut with £4.1 million which is in the same ball park as the other 2.

Both the other 2 films went on to make in the £20 million region and we would expect this one to do very similar business as its appealing to the same audience, this film has got less favourable reviews though.

A Star Is Born

It was a very fine margin but Johnny English just beat out A Star Is Born as the Bradley Cooper directed and starring film takes the third spot this week with a £4.1 million debut.

The House With A Clock In Its Walls

Three weeks on the box office now and the Jack Black starring film takes £900,00 over the weekend to boost its total UK gross to £6.8 million.

Night School

Taking a large tumble this week and finishing off the top 5 the Kevin Hart romantic comedy takes £860,000 to boost its 2 week UK gross to £3.1 million.

Incredibles 2

Having been on the box office for 13 weeks the Pixar animated comedy has taken an incredible £55.7 million making it the third highest grossing film of 2018.

8th October 2018

This week Sony unleashed its villain movie Venom from the Spider-Man universe onto the world against Warner Bros. A Star Is Born and the black slime movie knocked it out of the park.

A Star Is born

Venom

With a weekly gross of over $200 million Venom was far and away the biggest film of the week, but it was also one of the widest releases being released into 59 markets.

The Tom Hardy starring movie joins a long line of Marvel movies although this isn't from the Disney MCU it still has a similar look and feel, especially since the MCU has got a bit darker.

A Star Is Born

The Bradly Cooper directed and starring movie is at number 2 this week with a global gross of $55.2 million from 32 countries.

The movie also stars Lady Ga Ga and is widely being tipped for Oscar recognition so could hang around for quite a while and the positive reviews will only help as well.

Project Gutenberg

Now open in 6 countries the Chinese movie takes an incredible $28 million this week to take it to number 3 on the global box office, the films total global gross is $98.5 million.

Smallfoot

The animated family movie falls to number 4 this week and it looks like the movie might sink faster than expected. released in 58 countries it took $26.6 million this week for a $75 million total gross.

Shadow

Still only available in 1 country this Chinese film takes up the number 5 position this week with an $18 million weekly global gross which takes the film to $65 million total.

2nd October 2018

It was a tight fought battle at the top of the UK box office this weekend between Night School and last weeks top film The House With A Clock In Its Walls but the new comer won in the end.

The House With A Clock In Its Walls

Night School

Taking iver at the top the new romantic comedy starring Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish took the top with £1.59 million, a very slim margin of £0.05million.

Kevin Hart has appeared in some high profile film including Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle so this is a fairly low opening for him, for Tiffany Haddish who starred is the £8 million Girls Trip from 2017 this will go down as her second highest grossing film in the UK.

The House With A Clock In Its Walls

Taking top honors that week the Jack Black starring film nearly repeated this week but gets knocked down to 2 taking £1.54 million for the weekend, this boosts the films total to £5.5 million after 2 weeks.

A Simple Favour

The Paul Feig directed film falls to number 3 this week with just over a million pound weekend gross which takes to films UK gross to £3.4 million after 2 weeks.

Crazy Rich Asians

The American smash hit comedy is still doing well in the UK, although not bringing in the same success as across the pond, but a £0.7 million weekend puts the film at number 4 this week and boosts the total gross to £4.8 million.

The Nun

Halloween may be just around the corner but this horror film will be out the charts by then, sitting at 5 this week with a £0.6 million weekend brings it to a very respectable £10.5 million UK gross.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

The sequel has done amazingly well in the UK and is the top total grossing film again this week, dropping to number 13 this week the film has a UK total gross of £65 million.

It probably wont outgross the original movie's £69 million which for a time was the UK's top film but it will be in the same ball park.

25th September 2018

The big film of the week is from director Eli Roth who is more known for his gore slasher and violent movies, but here delivers a family friendly tale of magic and wonder.

A Simple Favour

The House With A Clock In Its Walls

The film stars Jack Black and Cate Blanchet and makes its debut on the UK box office with £3.3 million, for Black and Blanchet who have starred in some big profile movies this is a low gross but for Roth this is a good opening weekend.

A Simple Favour

Also new this weekend is A Simple Favour from director Paul Feig, it is his first directing outing since the critically panned Ghostbusters reboot from 2016.

Opening to £1.6 million it does well for the director, the film stars Anna Kendrick and Linda Cardellini.

King Of Thieves

Doing well at number 3 is King Of Thieves which takes £1.5 million on its second weekend to bring the Michael Cain film to £3.7 million total.

Crazy Rick Asians

Crazy Rick Asians has a good second weekend at number 4 on the box office and takes £1.1 million, down only a small amount from last weeks debut, this brings the film to £3.5 million total gross.

The Nun

Finally at number 5 is horror film The Nun which takes £1 million for the weekend taking its total gross to just under the 10 million pound mark.

The Predator

Last weeks number 1 film takes a massive tumble down the chart this week to number 7, its total gross is now £3.8 million after a £0.6 million weekend.

The House With A Clock In Its Walls

8th May 2018

With Avengers Infinity War proving too strong to be removed from the top of the UK box office, comedy I Feel Pretty makes its debut at number 2 this week.

I Feel PrettyAfter its 3rd top grossing debut of all time last week the film drops by 57% this week with a weekend gross of just over £10 million.

This brings the films total gross in the UK to nearly £52 million and its now the top grossing film of 2018 overtaking the other Marvel film Black Panther.

Amy Schumer stars in I Feel Pretty which makes its debut at number 2 this week.

Maybe its a brave move to open the week after a Marvel film but the love yourself comedy takes £1.2 million for the weekend.

A Quiet Place is still doing really well for itself and this week is at number 3 with a weekend gross of £395,335 which brings the total gross to over £10 million.

Finishing off the top 5 is The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society at 4 with has now taken £4 million and Rampage which has now taken £8 million.

The Wasp also gets some good screen time and the relationship between the two looks like it could be the highlight of the film.

Check out the trailer below.

2nd May 2018

The UK like the rest of the world embraced the new Avengers movie this weekend and took it to a dizzying height on its debut weekend.

The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie SocietyIt wasn't quite a record breaking weekend in the UK and Avengers Infinity War has a gross or £23.1 million making it the 6th top grossing debut weekend ever.

This amazing weekend gross also means that on its debut it is already the 5 highest grossing movie of 2018, stable mate Black Panther is the top grossing film of the year with £50 million and Avengers should overtake it in a couple of weeks.

At 2 this week is The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society with a weekend gross of just shy of a million which brings the films gross to £3 million.

At 3 is A Quite Place, the sleeper film takes £920,000 for the weekend which brings its total gross to just shy of £10 million.

Hanging on at 4 and 5 is Rampage and Peter Rabbit which have not got a total gross of £8 million and £39 million respectively.

30th April 2018

It is with absolutely no suprise at all the Avengers Infinity War is the top film in the US (and just about everywhere) this weekend, but with the high expectation given to the film it actually outperformed.

A Quiet PlaceEarly estimation are coming in with a weekend gross of $250 million, which would beat Star Wars: The Force Awakens opening weekend of $248 million making it the highest grossing opening ever.

These figures are with a Sunday estimate and Disney are thinking they may have this about $5 million lower than the true figure so we could see an opening weekend of $255 million - either way it is a massive record breaking figure for the film.

Avengers aside A Quite Place drops down to number 2 this weekend, the film has done incredibly well for a low budget horror, it has grossed $10.6 million this weekend bringing the total to $148 million.

At third is the Amy Schumer comedy I Feel Pretty which grosses $8.1 million over the weekend for a $30 million total.

Rampage sits at 4 this weekend with a $7 million weekend and an $80 million total and Black Panther shoots back up to number 5 with the release of Avengers Infinity War, the film this weeks takes $4.3 million which brings the total to an incredible $688 million.

10th April 2018

Peter Rabbit follows in the footsteps of the previous top film Black Panther and makes is 4 weeks at the top in a row.

The film this weeks takes £3.2 million which brings the film total to £32.2 million.

Staying at number 2 this week is Ready Player One which looses ground on Peter Rabbit this week taking £2.4 million from the weekend.

This pushes the Spielberg directed film to a total UK gross of £11.5 million after 2 weekends of release.

Highest new film of the week is A Quiet Place directed by John Krasinski and starring himself and his wife Emily Blunt.

The critically acclaimed film takes £2.7 million on its opening weekend.

Love, Simon is a new entry at number 4 this week and Isle of Dogs from Wes Anderson falles to number 5 this weekend.

9th April 2018

At the US box office this week John Krasinski directs himself and his wife Emily Blunt in the new number one film A Quiet Place.

The Film opens strong at the top of the US box office with a $50 million opening weekend which is one of the top openings for the horror genre.

A Quiet Place removed Ready Player One from the top after a single weekend, the Steven Spielberg film takes $25 million on its second weekend of release.

The VR sci-fi has now taken nearly $100 million in the US and will pass this milestone probably on Monday.

New at 3 is Blockers, the teen sex comedy which takes $21 million from the weekend.

Finishing off the top 5 is Black Panther at 4 which is now the third highest grossing movie in the US ever with $665 million and I Can Only Imagine at 5.

5th April 2018

With the release of a new Steven Spielberg film your expect a new number 1 film, but Peter Rabbit kept the film at bay for a second weekend at the top.

It was a tight race with only half a million in it but Peter Rabbit raking £5.6 million for the weekend to boost its total UK gross to £21.6 million.

Director Steven Spielberg gave us Ready Player One this week which was released to great reviews and public demand but it failed to reach the top on its debut hitting number 2 with £5.1 million.

Also new this week at number 3 is the Wes Anderson directed animation Isle Of Dogs which takes a better than expected £1.6 million over the weekend.

Another new entry in the top 5 has Blockers hitting number 4 with £1.3 million.

Finishing off the top 5 is Black Panther with takes just over a million for the weekend, this brings the film total UK gross to £46 million and it is by far the top film of 2018 so far.

There are still some big film to be released this year but it will take potentially the other Marvel movie Avengers Infinity War to beat this total as I think the likes of Solo A Star Wars Story wont have the legs to beat it.

27th March 2018

After a 5 week run at the top of the US box office Back panther this week gets knocked down to number 2 with the new entry of pacific Rim Uprising.

It was a relatively low debut for the Pacific Rim sequel as it takes $28 million, compared to the original its well down as that film took $37 million on its debut.

Despite falling to number 2 Black Panther still manager a $16 million 6th weekend which brings the films total US gross to $630 million.

I Can Only Imagine stays at number 3 this weekend while new at number 4 is the animated sequel Sherlock Gnomes which takes $10 million.

Finally Tomb Raider falls to number 5 this week on its second weekend of release with a gross of $10 million bringing the films total to $41 million.

21st March 2018

After a very good 4 weeks at the top of the Uk box office Black Panther givers up this week and falls down to number 2 leaving Peter Rabbit and Tomb Raider to fight it out.

The Will Gluck directed Peter Rabbit starring the voice of James Cordon easily made it to the top in the end with a weekend gross of £7 million.

Also making its debut is Alicia Vikander in the reboot of Tomb Raider which make a decent weekend gross of £3 million.

In comparison the Angelina Jolie first outing from 2001 took £3.8 million on its debut, with inflation the reboot is a bit of a let down.

Black Panther may have fallen to number 3 this week but a £1.8 million 5th weekend takes the film total UK gross to £42 million, its global gross is now nearly $1.2 billion.

The Greatest Showman continues to do really well and a 12 weekend gross of just over £1 million brings the films total gross to nearly £39 million.

Red Sparrow finished off the top 5 this week.

19th March 2018

Despite a good attempt by Tomb Raider to derail Black Panther from the top of the US box office the Marvel mega smash manages a fifth weekend at the top.

No film in the US has spent this long at the top since Avatar in 2009 so this is kind of a big deal.

This weekend Panther takes $27 million which takes its total US gross to $605 million.

Coming in at number 2 this week, and the highest new film, is Tomb Raider, the new reboot following on from the rebooted games from a few years back.

Despite mainly positive reviews the film still only manages to gross half that of the Angelina Jolie movie from 2001.

The Alice Vikander version of the video game heroin takes $23.5 million on its opening weekend.

Faith based movie I Can Only Imagine is new at 3 and gets the highest per screen average on the charts and has far outstripped expectation, the film takes $17 million for the weekend.

Finishing off the top 5 is A Wrinkle in time at number 4 and sinking fast and Love, Simon which is new at number 5 this weekend.

14th March 2018

Not a lot of movement on the UK box office this week as Black Panther stays at the top for a fourth weekend and the top new film is at number 12.

The last time a film spent four consecutive weekends at the top was July 2017 when Dunkirk did it, Black panther has followed a very similar path and that film went on to make £44 million.

Black panther this weekend takes £2.9 million which brings the films total UK gross to £39.8 million, it is the top grossing film of the year, it has also just passed the $1 billion mark globally.

Breaking outside the top 10 briefly, with a lack of any big blockbusters this weekend the top new film of the week is You Were Never Really Here starring Joaquin Phoenix which is new at 12 with a weekend gross of £288,344.

Climbing to 2 this weekend is The Greatest Showman which is having one of the greatest box office runs ever, 11 weeks in and its not left the top 5 and its grossed over £1 million on each of those weeks.

This week it takes £1.5 million, an increase on last week, which brings its total gross to an incredible £37 million.

The rest of the top 5 is filled with Red Sparrow, last weeks top new entry falls to 3, and then hold overs Game Night at number 4 and lady Bird at number 5.

Worth noting is the 2 big Oscar winning film saw mixed fortunes this week, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri dropper from last week while The Shape Of Water saw a very slight increase.

12th March 2018

Four weeks on top for Black Panther and seemingly no slowing down for the African set Marvel movie as it smashes the half billion barrier in US grosses.

A fourth weekend take of £41 million for Black Panther takes its total gross to £562 million and joins Star Wars: The Force Awakes to cross the half billion milestone.

Disney can't be too unhappy with the performance of Black Panther but their new muched hyped film A Wrinkle In Time manages a number 2 entry with £33 million.

Reviews have been mixed for the fantasy drama which is reflected in its opening weekend which reflects Disney's last attempt at fantasy drama Tomorrowland from 2015.

New at 3 is horror film Strangers Pray At Night which opens to £10 million while last weeks top new film Red Sparrow falls hard to number 4, Game Night finishes off the top 5.

5th March 2018

Still showing its dominance on the UK box office is the Marvel titan Black Panther which tops the chart for a third straight weekend beating Red Sparrow which makes its debut.

Now in its 3rd week of release the film still manages to take over £3 million which brings the films total UK gross to just over |£35 million.

The film is on track to be the second or third biggest Marvel film in the UK as its tracking slightly behind the two Avengers movies.

Highest new film of the week is the Jennifer Lawrence vehicle Red Sparrow which enters at number 2 with a gross of £1.8 million.

Still hitting the top 5 after 10 weeks of release which is simply incredible is The Greatest Showman.

The film takes another £1.2 million from the weekend which pushes its UK gross to £35.2 million, it is second to Black Panther at the top grossing film of 2018.

Finally on the top 5 is Fifty Shades Freed which has done better than expected taking $7 million on its 3 weekend but now falling fast.

19th February 2018

Marvel released their latest superhero this weekend into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the shape of Black Panther and became the studios second best debut behind Avengers Age of Ultron the second Avengers movie.

A weekend gross of £17.7 million means the film is less than a million behind the multi superhero film.

Falling to number 2 this week is Fifty Shades Freed which takes £2.7 million in its second weekend for a £13.3 million total so far.

30th August 2017

It was a quiet weekend at the UK box office as top 15 total gross reaches a level not seen since December 2015 with Tom Cruises new film American Made takes the crown.

Grossing a little over 1 million pound the film had little to no competition for the top spot and takes nearly £900,000 less than last week number 1 film.

Ironically what American Made has done that Cruises last film didn't do is go to number 1, The Mummy released in early June could only manage a number 2 debut, although it did it with £3.3 million.

Of interest is this weeks full weekly breakdown, if the chart was based on Monday - Sunday figures this week chart would have been as follows: Dunkirk, The Hitmans Bodyguard, The Emoji Movie, Annabelle Creation, Despicable Me 3.

American Made is the only film this week to take over a million is takings, Dunkirk which is at number 2 this week is just shy and yet again nearly took the top spot.

The Hitmans Bodyguard fell from the top to number 3 this week with a weekend gross of just over £800,000 which is 4% drop from last week.

The films total gross after 2 weekend of play is now £4 million.

Also new this week are Logan Lucky directed by Steven Soderbergh at number 4 and Detroit starring John Boyega and directed by Kathryn Bigelow at number 7.

Dunkirk is this weeks top total grossing film with a total that is now over £50 million while Despicable Me 3 has now been on the chart for a run of 9 weeks.

The comedy starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson took £1.9 million on its debut weekend to reach the top, this is the lowest opening for a film to reach number 1 since Billy Elliot The Musical Live took the top spot in September 2014.

This means that the total gross for the top 15 films is also at a low with just £10 million taken.

Falling from the top is Dunkirk, although it held on tight and in the end lost to by a narrow margin taking to second place with £1.8 million.

Dunkirk is still showing strong figures from the week and took £4 million Monday - Sunday to brings its total to nearly £50 million, it is easily the second top grossing film of 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.

8th August 2017

Still selling enough tickets to keep it on top for a third week is Dunkirk which holds off a strong debut from The Emoji Movie.

War film Dunkirk from director Christopher Nolan keeps pulling in the punters and stays on top for an incredible third weekend with a gross of £4.6 million.

This brings the films total to £28 million with no sign of slowing down yet, and with a weak load of new releases next week we could see a fourth weekend on top.

Coming in at number 2 this week is The Emoji Movie which takes a very good £2.7 million on its debut.

With the summer holidays in full swing this is a timely release and it could mean the film stays in the upper reaches of the chart for a while to come.

Big budget movie Valerian and The City of A Thousand Planets from Luc Besson should have been a massive hit but we have a bit of a flop on our hands as the film debuts at number 3 with £1.8 million.

With 6 weeks on the chart Baby Driver is this week longest running film and with nearly £40 million in total grosses Despicable Me 3 is the highest total grossing film.

6th June 2017

This week the flagging DC Cinematic Universe owned by Warner Bros. got a well needed kick start with Wonder Woman that not only got a fantastic opening weekend but also got good reviews.

For a new IP starring the little known Gal Gadot a £6.1 million opening is fantastic, although Chris Pine does brings some star power and the film easily takes over at the top of the UK box office.

Compared to the previous 2 films in the series, Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice and Man of Steel it is far lower but the reviews have been far better and this film could have a good run ahead of it.

With Justice League coming on November this year it could be a good year for Warner and the DC property it so wants to be a rival to Marvel Cinematic Universe but is lacking to date.

Falling from the top to number 3 this week is Pirates of The Caribbean: Salazars Revenge, a weekend take of £2 million brings the films total to £13 million.

Worth noting is for the week Monday - Sunday Pirates of The Caribbean: Salazars Revenge would have still been number 1 with a weekly take of £7.7 million.

Also making its debut this week is Baywatch, a slapstick retelling of the 90s TV show, starring Dwayne Johnson and Zak Efron the film takes £4.6 million, not bad really but not good up against a superhero movie.

This week has Smurfs The Lost Village as the longest running film with 9 weeks while Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 is the top total grossing movie with £39.6 million after 6 weeks.

1st June 2017

Last Friday saw the release of the fifth in the long running Pirates of The Caribbean series, and after some high grossing debuts number 5 comes in with a lower gross and less fan fare.

The film still managed a number one debut with its £5 million weekend gross but its the lowest opening weekend sing the original film Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of The Black Pearl.

The series is clearly loosing steam and after 5 films of questionable quality the tiring series needs to retire, going from an over £10 million debut of On Stranger Tides to £5 million for the latest is a warning sign to Disney.

Falling hard from number 1 this week, and fast becoming the flop of the summer is King Arthur Legend of The Sword which this week sits at number 5.

A second weekend take of just under £600 thousand is a massive 75% drop from last week, the total after 2 weeks is nearly £4 million.

Also new this week is Diary of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul at number 2, the series of films is a favourite with children and takes nearly £1.5 million on its debut.

5th December 2016

A very quiet weekend in the hangover after Thanksgiving and Black Friday which has Moana from Disney stay firmly at the top while horror Incarnate is the only new film landing at 9.

Moana has now taken a total of $119 million in the US with a second weekend take of $28 million, in such a low grossing weekend not a bad take.

The film wont scale the heights of Frozen but it will be yet another sizeable hit and it fills the gap while we wait for the next Pixar film.

With the rest of the top 10 more or less staying the same as last week the top new film landed right down at number 9 in the shape of Incarnate.

Incarnate took $2.6 million for the weekend and with this showing will most likely fall out of cinemas this week.

28th November 2016

Disney threw their latest film hoping to hit the heights of Frozen at US audiences this weekend in the shape of Moana, they are hoping that the long holiday weekend would give it a boost.

With a debut weekend of $55 million over the Friday to Sunday they can't complain, and the long weekend from Wednesday night saw the film gain over $80 million.

With many families out shopping on the big retail weekend that includes black Friday this isn't such a bad debut, and with good reviews this could well go on and on for Disney.

Next weekend will be the big test, no new child friendly film are set for a release in the coming weeks which is good for Moana but then they get the Galaxy Far Far away to deal with, but who from, yes Disney, the Mouse House should have a good holiday.

Last weeks top film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, fell to number 2 this weekend and gained $45 million, this brings the films US total to $156 million, not the heights of Harry Potter.

Also new this week is America is Allied starring Brad Pitt at number 4 with $13 million and Bad Santa 2 at number 7 with $6 million and very bad reviews.

Longest stay on the US box office is split between 3 films, Doctor Strange, Trolls and Hacksaw Ridge all on 4 weeks, although the highest total grossing by a long margin is Doctor Strange with $205 million.

5th June 2016

Another big week for new releases and for the second week in a row an all new top 3 on the video chart with Goosebumps leading the way.

Starring Jack Black the film was released at the UK cinema on 5th February 2016 where it entered the UK box office at number 1.

The following week the film fell to number 5 and had a relatively short 6 week stay on the UK box office before disappearing.

In that time though the film did manage to gross a fairly reasonable £8.5 million although this is quite low for a Jack Black film for which King Kong is his highest grossing movie.

Also for director Rob Letterman it is his lowest grossing movie to date.

The rest of the top 3 reads like: Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie is new at number 2 and Ride Along 2 is new at number 3.

Last weeks top film Spotlight falls right down to number 8 this week.

Soccer documentary Bobby is also new this week at number 12.

30th March 2016

The film is the 102nd highest grossing movie in the UK with a total gross of £29 million and with a total world gross of $652.9 million it is the 87th highest grossing film ever.

It is the second lowest success of The Hunger Games movies after the first film.

Also new on the video charts this week are: The Good Dinosaur at number 2, Black Mass at number 5, Carol at number 6 and finally Steve Jobs at 9.

9th February 2016

In what is a quiet week compared to recent weeks Jack Black takes his latest film Goosebumps to the top of the UK box office beating Dads Army in the process.

The children's fantasy film enters at the top of the box office on its debut with £2.7 million pound which is low for both star Jack Black and director Rob Letterman.

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.

As expected the movie version of Mrs. Browns Boys took the top spot at the UK box office, and with quite a strong margin over the rest.

On it's debut weekend Mrs. Brown's Boys D'Movie took an incredible £4.3 million, far higher than expected and proving that the Irish sit-com has quite a following.

I suspect that this is a fairly front loaded event and we could see it fall quite sharply, I dont think it has the lasting appeal of movie like The Inbetweeners Movie.

Falling to the runner up spot this week is The Fault in our stars which made £1.7 million from the weekend bringing it's 10 day gross to £6.7 million.

19th July 2012

The Amazing Spider-man could only manage a single week at number 1 as Ice Age: Continental Drift climbs back up to the top.

Previously Ice Age 4 managed to get to the top in a very quiet week in only 134 screens across the UK, this week the film has expanded to 522 screens and take an amazing £10,087,052, so in actual fact the film has taken more in it's 3rd weekend of release than most films make in their first weekend. To date Ice Age 4 has taken £13,051,881.

With Spider-Man's takings falling by 65% it falls to number 2, the longest stay in the chart this week is Men in Black 3 which has so far grossed £21,539,847

12th July 2012

Last weekend UK cinema goers came out in big numbers for the revamp of the Spider-Man story in The Amazing Spider-man. The film which stars Britain's Andrew Garfield had an excellent opening weekend where the web slinger take was an amazing £11,091,972 and took 4-5 times more than the rest of box office combined.

14th June 2012

This week Ridley Scotts Prometheus stays at the top of the Uk box office chart. It was a week with not much in the way of new releases so movie goers who didn't catch the Alien universe film last week took their chance this week to the tune of £3,135,504. The total gross for the film is now £15,471,936 after 2 weeks of release.

The highest new release of the week is right down at number 4, The Pact enters with a weekend gross of £932,325. In a rare move Men in Black 3 goes back up one place to number 2.

7th June 2012

This week director Ridley Scott takes his prequel\non-prequel Prometheus to the top of the UK box office. The film has had mixed reviews that may have effected it's box office performance but cinema goers were still keen to see the potential start of the Alien universe and flooded cinemas to the tune of a £6,236,580 weekend.

Last weeks top film Men in Black 3 falls harder than expected to number 3 this week, although it was 2 strong new films in Prometheus and Snow White and The Huntsman at 2 that effected it's position, the Will Smith film still manages a good £3,032,053 second weekend.

Avengers Assemble is still raking in the money this week and now has a total gross of £48,367,585 after 6 weeks making it the 20th top film in the UK, worldwide it's the 3rd top film.

And ten years ago there was no stopping Star Wars Episode II: Attack of The Clones as it kept Josh Hartnetts 40 Days and 40 Nights from the top.

15th February 2012

Daniel Radcliffe, for the immediate future anyway, is always going to be Harry Potter, for 10 years he lived and breathed the character and to millions of adoring fans he is the image of the boy wizard, which is why it is an achievement that while watching The Woman in Black Harry Potter hardly crossed my mind.

The story, set in an Edwardian era, centers around Arthur Kipps (Radcliffe) who is a solicitor sent to clear up the paperwork of a recently deceased woman. Kipps himself has a 4 year old child and is a widow, his wife having died during child birth.

Kipps arrives in the village of Crythin Gifford where he is to spend the next couple of days working before his son arrives to join him for a holiday. During his train journey Kipps meets the local wealthy man who he befriends and then is given a lift in his car (noted as being the first car in the village) to the inn where he is booked in to stay.

The welcome Kipps gets from everyone else is far from friendly, and as he goes about his business the next day he is more or less told to leave town. What ensues from there is a traditional ghost story with scares and jumps at every opportunity.

As I first mentioned Radcliffe, fresh from the Potter franchise where he IS the boy wizard, manages to detach himself from that completely, not sure if it's the side burns or the fact that his character spends a lot of time alone and doesn't say a lot, or maybe it's the low budget film not being laden with special effect but it's a good move.

I'm showing my age now but I remember the Hammer Horror films of the 70's and 80's which at the time were scary as hell, and the TV show had me hiding behind the sofa more than Doctor Who did, and this film, which is produced by Hammer and filmed in the UK captures the spirit of the old Hammer perfectly.

The film is jumpy if a little corny in places, not too long and has a story which is acceptable for a horror film of this type. I started the question things when a seemingly normal guy decides to spend the night in the creepiest looking house in England that is cut from mainland during for large part of the day and he'd already experienced minor paranormal activity (I'd never have gone anywhere near the house in the first place) and some of the jumpy scenes were far too predictable and came off as amusing but on the whole it's an enjoyable scary horror harking back to the glory days of Hammer.

Good: Decent screenplay from Jane Goldman and some genuinely scary moments. Well directed by James Watkins and a good supporting cast.

Bad: Does get predictable and some of the scares are funny. Too many unanswered things happen and the ending although good could have been better.

Men in Black was great, Men in Black 2 starts great but get silly towards the end, so you can imagine, a 3rd could lie either way in my book, couple this with the reports of problems on set and there is a fear of trouble brewing in the MIB franchise for a third film.

Sony have now delivered a trailer, and although I went in skeptical I have to say by the end of the trailer I was won over and I'm now looking forward to this film.

OK the premise seems a little old, time travel, and it seems like Tommy Lee Jones wasn't as willing as Will Smith to be in the film, but it looks great, Emma Thompson has a brilliant fleeting appearance in the trailer and from there I just sat back and enjoyed.

Check out the trailer below and let me know what you think.

9th February 2011

Tangled maintained its position at the top of the UK box office chart this week with a non-too shabby weekend gross of £4,569,135 which is only down just over half a million on the previous week, not bad, this means also that the overall gross over 10 days stands at £ 10,742,265.

Retaining it number 2 spot is The Kings Speech which is still managing to impress, not only at the box office but at the continuous awards ceremonies at this time of year, a weekend take of £2,739,204 brings its gross of 5 weeks to £30,014,606.

Highest new entry of the week The Fighter, another Oscar contender for many awards the film stars Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale and is directed by David O. Russell. A weekend take of £ 2,118,140 is good considering the competition.

Black Swan drops a single place to 4 with £1,725,630 while new at 5 is the James Cameron presented Sanctum, it's not doing the same numbers as a Cameron directed film and is maybe a little disappointing with £ 859,064.

Again this weeks box office is a little higher than this time last year where Avatar was still the top film and still raking in a weekend take of over £4million. Highest new entry was Disney's The Frog Princess with Astro Boy following and Invictus not far behind. Sherlock Holmes was still hanging onto the top 5.

3rd February 2011

Having already done big business in the US and currently standing as the 104th all time grossing film in the world Tangled this week tops the UK box office chart.

The new traditional film, as in hand drawn rather than CGI (although computers were used in the production) is the story of Rapunzel, although I think this Rapunzel is a little less the princess in the tower type. Over the weekend is tool a respectable £5,106,612.

Falling to number 2 this week after 3 weeks on top is The King's Speech, a weekend gross of £ 3,634,265 takes it's total to £24,905,378. With many awards in the bag and many more to come expect this to hang around for a while and gross a lot more.

Also in award contention is the number 3 film Black Swan, Natalie Portman is picking up actress awards left right and center and its gross reflects this with £2,566,346 last weekend and £7,305,659 in total.

Jason Statham makes a debut at 4 this week with The Mechanic taking £921,554 and The Dilemma is at 5 taking £669,368 expanding its gross to £2,292,011. This weeks box office is quite a bit up on last years where Avatar was still at the top but slowing down and Mel Gibson was the highest new entry with Edge of Darkness.

26th January 2011

Among all the Oscar and BAFTA buzz that is surrounding The Kings Speech at the moment it's no surprise to see it still topping the UK box office chart in it's third week of release.

Just to mention the Oscars, The Kings Speech has got more Nomination than any other film this year, 12 in Total, and it gets nods in all major categories except for Best Actress, it's up for Best Film, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Screenplay to name just half of it's nominated categories.

Onto this weeks chart and the film took a very impressive £ 4,226,074 in it's 3rd week, which brings it's total to £ 18,312,482. It will be interesting to see if the award momentum can keep it at number one.

Top new release of the week is the Oscar nominated Black Swan starring Natalie Portman. The ballet drama which also stars Winona Ryder took £2,762,429 during it's first weekend.

Slipping to third this week is The Green Hornet with £1,187,652 and a total gross after 2 weeks of £ 3,830,737.

New at 4 is The Dilemma with £1,102,798, a disappointing debut for a Ron Howard film starring Vince Vaughn, and making a slow fall down is Gulliver's Travels at 5 with £992,382 making it's total £13,728,081.

This weeks chart is again lower than this time last year where Avatar and Sherlock Holmes were still pulling in the audience with Alvin and the Chipmunks 2, Up in the Air and It's Complicated also doing very good business.

5th January 2011

Jack Black scores the first top film of the year in the re-telling of the giant movie Gulliver's travels.

Supported by a cast of many British actors including the likes of Billy Connelly, Catherine Tate and James Cordon, the giant movie takes in an excellent £7,028,747 over the New Year period, no doubt helped by the mega press that Jack Black and other members of the cast have done on British TV.

Black has had a mixed bag of success in the UK with his last film, Year One, bombing with £2,776,236, but then he's had hits like King Kong which took £26,080,026 in the UK, so Gulliver's Travels will rank among his higher grossing movies.

Falling to second this week is The Little Fockers with £2,614,802 bringing it to £11,159,635 over a ten day period.

New at 3 is Jake Gyllenhaal in a film directed by Edward Zwick, Love and Other Drugs takes £1,606,253 over the weekend.

New at 4 Peter Weir directs Colin Farrell and Jim Sturgess in The Way Back to the tune of £1,327,650 and falling And finally in the top 5 falling is The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of The Dawn Treader which takes £1,207,264 which brings it total gross now to £11,263,418 which is the lowest of all the Narnia films. This week the top 7 films all took over a million pound each in box office takings, very good compared to last week when only the top film took over a million, and better than last year when only the top 4 took over a million.

8th March 2010

I just checked out the new Iron Man 2 trailer, and for a film that I thought was going to be another Iron Man, this is actually looking good.

The first film although fun was basically just another super hero movie that ticked all the right boxes. The inevitable sequel was to follow after the amount of money it made and as always with sequels the ante had to be upped.

Bring in Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow for a bit of glamour and Mickey Rourke as the bad guy and suddenly things are starting to look a whole lot better.

The second trailer for the film shows a lot of promise, Mickey Rourke's Whiplash is quite wonderfully shown off in the trailer and there is just enough of Scarlett Johansson to seriously whet the appetite.

And this is ignoring the fact that there is also glimpses of Samuel L. Jackson which is always enough to make a trailer worth watching.

7th June 2009

No surprises to see that the Batman film The Dark Knight is the top grossing film in 2008 taking a staggering $994,896,852, thats £689,395,105 at todays rate of exchange.

The hype surrounding the film was immense as we went into the year and with the sad and untimely death of one of it's stars, Heath Ledger, this gave the film and even greater must see edge, and the film didn't disappoint, Ledger especially.

With The Dark Knight the runaway success it was the second biggest film of the year across the globe was a return of an old friend in the shape of Indiana Jones. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull took an incredible $783,011,114 (£542,544,744), not bad for an old man who's not been seen since 1989.

Third most popular film of the year is also the biggest animated feature of the year and Pixar/Disney had nothing to do with it. Jack Black lends his voice to the Kung Fu Panda which took $633,395,021 (£438,636,528) this year worldwide.

Also making strong numbers throughout the world this year were UK favorites Mamma Mia! with $568,704,210 (£393,821,544) and Quantum of Solace with $540,902,659 (£374,504,077) although both films are still plying in UK cinemas.
