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.
In a summer of superheroes, Apes and Pirates it was a was film which out grossed everything with few stars but a visionary director who is a master of storytelling.
Christopher Nolan has become one of the most prolific directors in modern cinema and he took the moving story of Dunkirk to the top over the summer to the tune of £53 million.
It was by far the top film of the summer season with the closest competitor at number 2 Spider-Man Homecoming which brought home just why of £30 million.
Next up is the highest grossing film ever from a female director in the shape of Wonder Woman which grossed £22 million while the apes rules at number 4 with War For The Planet of The Apes grossing £20 million.
IN recent years a new Pirates of the Caribbean film would have meant big money but Pirates of The Caribbean: Salazars Revenge came in at 5 with under £20 million, far less than previous entries.
Looking further down the top films of the summer in the UK Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 was the sixth top film while Alien: Covenant was the seventh and Baby Driver the eight.
Rounding out the top 10 is The Emoji Movie at nine and finally Cars 3 at number ten, another film which is suffering from series fatigue and has done far worse than the others in the series.
Looking forward to the holiday season ahead we can expect top film from IT to Kingsman The Golden Circle, Blade Runner 2049 to Thor: Ragnarok and Justice League to Star Wars: The LAst Jedi.
With the release of the fifth in the now long running Transformers series we were bound to get a new film at the top of the UK box office.
Transformers The Last Knight makes its way to the top of the Uk box office on its debut weekend of release with a gross of £4.6 million, a low for the series.
In fact the other 4 films have made between £8 and £11 million on their opening, it could not surprise me if this one struggles to make that during its entire run.
Wonder Woman spent three weeks at the top of the box office before this week falling to number 2, still a &poound;1.5 million weekend is not too bad.
The films total gross has not crossed the &poound;18 million mark and it should go past the £20 million before the end of its run.
Also new this week is Hampsted at number 6 and Tubelight at number 7 with half a million and £300,000+ respectively.
Longest running film this week is The Boss Baby with 12 weeks on the charts and highest total grossing is Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 which has now takes £40.7 million.

The Secret Life of pets landed at the top, it knocked off The Conjuring 2 The Enfield Case which spent just a week at the top.
Five years ago
As odd as it seemed Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter made its debut at the top knocking off Prometheus which fell to 4.
Ten years ago
Staying at the top for a second weekend was 4: Rise of The Silver Surfer while the top new film was Captivity at number 4.
Fifteen years ago
Spider-Man stayed at the top of the box office while top new film was The Musketeer right down at number 8.
Twenty years ago
The Devils Own found its way to the top on its debut while The Fifth Element fell to number 3 after two weeks on top.
Twenty five years ago
spending a third week at the top was The Lawnmower Man, it kept The Lover at bay which made its debut at number 2.
Making it a trio of weeks at the top this week Wonder Woman beats again The Mummy while the top new film is Churchill at number 5.
The DC Universe from Warner Bros. really has kicked into gear now with Wonder Woman taking £1.8 million on its third weekend of release.
This puts the films total gross in the UK at £16.2 million, although last years Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice made more it was very front loaded and by this point in its run had really slowed down.
The Mummy has done better in the UK than in other territories where it sunk on the second weekend, this week its still at 2 with £1.1 million for a total of £4.9 million.
Highest new film of the week is Churchill which enters the UK box office at number 5 with £392,732.
The film starring Brian Cox and Miranda Richardson has been praised critically but as a small independent film doesn’t get the reach of a high budget blockbuster and was only screened in 345 sites.
The film has done well to take this much and as is often the case with British film it is sure to hang around for many weeks to come.
Other films making their debut this weekend are Gifted starring Chris Evans and the Nick Broomfield documentary Whitney Can I Be Me at number 10.
Longest running film this weekend is The Boss Baby with 11 weeks on the chart while the top grossing movie is Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 which has now grossed £40 million in total.

remaining at the top was The Fifth Element while the top new film was Whoopy Goldberg in The Associate at number 7.
Twenty five years ago
The Lawnmower Man held onto the top for a second weekend with Dolly Pardon in Straight Talk the top new film at number 4.
Tom Cruise launches his latest vehicle this weekend in the US but it is no match for the mammoth Wonder Woman which spends a second weekend at the top.
Tom Cruise spent the early part of his career avoiding franchise films but since starring and producing the Mission:Impossible series of film he has become more seduced by the idea.
With Another Jack Reacher film released earlier this year and another Top Gun film promised Cruise here starts with The Mummy which promises to kick off a Dark Universe franchise.
The Mummy kicks off its US box office run with a number 2 debut and $32.2 million, really not the sort of business Universal were expecting, add to that bad reviews and Cruise may start worrying.
Wonder Woman holds onto the top spot this week with a $57.1 million second weekend, easily beating The Mummy, this brings the films total gross to $205 million.
Also new this week is It Comes At Night, $6 million and number 6 and Megan Leavey, new at 8 with $3.7 million.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 is this weeks longest running film with 6 weeks on the chart and the highest total grossing movie with $366 million.
