31st December 2016

A little late reporting on this weeks charts with the figures arriving the following weekend due to the Christmas break.

UK audiences were in the mood for the Galaxy Far Far Away over the Christmas week with Rogue One staying at the top, maybe a fitting tribute as we said goodbye to Princess Leah.

With the new coming in over the festive period that actress Carrie Fisher sadly passed away what better tribute to pay than keeping Rogue One: A Star Wars Story at number one with £5.6 million on its second weekend.

This brings the films total gross to £33.9 million, an excellent gross in normal circumstances but this is a star wars film and the film is falling far short of last years Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

Highest new entry of the week is Passengers which after bad reviews still manages to land at number 2 with £2.4 million.

Both stars Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are involved with high grossing franchises so this is by no means a big opening for them and with the no so good reviews the film could sink quite quick.

Longest running film on the chart this week is Trolls which has been around for 10 weeks not and highest total grossing movie is Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which has now grossed £47,469,530 after 6 weeks.

21st 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.

Historical chart

13th December 2016

We are all taking a deep breath as this weekend approaches but until then Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them makes its fourth weekend at the top while top new film is Office Christmas Part which debuts at number 4.

Warner Bros. clearly released this new entry into the Wizarding World at the right time as the film adds another £2.7 million (£4.4 million across the week) to its total which now sits at £42.3 million.

Highest new film of the week if bromance comedy Office Christmas Party, it enters at number 4 with a debut gross of £1.2 million.

The film is a Christmas based movie and as such I suspect it will make a swift exit from the box office one the festive season is over.

Highest total grossing film on the chart this week is Fantastic beasts and the longest running film is Trolls which has now been around for 8 weeks.

It will be interesting to watch what happens over next week with the new entry in Star Wars, last years Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens had a £34 million debut weekend, with the reviews so far for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story are we looking at even better? Historical box office

A year ago
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 had its 4th weekend at the top and with the world waiting or the first Star Wars film in over a decade there were no new film inside the top 15, Peggy Guggenheim Art Addict was the top new film at number 25!

Five years ago
Puss in Boots starring Antonio Banderas was the top new film at number one, it knocked Arthur Christmas to number 2 after 4 weeks at the top.

Twenty five years ago

7th December 2016

Although the anticipation for the new Disney film Moana is quite high its not enough to knock off the three time champion Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Fantastic Beast stays put at the top of the Uk box office for its third straight week with an amazing weekend gross of £4.4 million, this brings the films total gross to £37.8 million.

There should be one more weekend at the top for Beast before the Galaxy Far Far Away comes blasting in, but that should be enough to cement the film as one of the years top films.

The film still has a way to go before beating the lowest grossing Potter film which was 2004's Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban which made £45.6 million.

Highest new film of the week then come in at 2, Moana from Disney makes £2.2 million on its UK debut.

Compared to Frozen from Disney which came out at the same time of year in 2013 this is half its debut gross of £4.7 million hence we probably wont see this scaling those heights.

Also new this week is Sully at number 3 with £1.7 million, Pitbull. Niebezpieczne Kobiety at number 5 with £0.4 million, The Edge of Seventeen at 9 with £0.27 million and Bleed For This at number 10 with £0.25 million.

Highest total grossing movie this week is Fantastic beasts and longest run on the box office is Trolls which has been around now for 7 weeks.

29th November 2016

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them stays at the top of the UK box office for a second weekend keeping off Allied which makes its debut at number 2.

With a second weekend gross of £8.8 million Fantastic Beasts has a brilliant second weekend which brings its total gross after 2 weekends of release to £30 million.

This result is actually keeping in line with the Harry Potter series, the latter films had far better first weekends but fell to roughly the same for the second weekend.

The potential for Beasts to go on and make similar to the early Potter films at least is quite high if it keeps on this trajectory.

Landing at 2 this week if the latest Brad Pitt starring film Allied, co starring Marion Cotillard and directed by Robert Zemeckis the drama takes £1.3 million on its debut.

For both Pitt and Zemeckis this is a fairly typical opening gross, although for both this is no where near their highest grossing debuts.

Also new this week is Bad Santa 2 at 4 with &poind;.7 million and very bad reviews, A United Kingdom at 6, Dear Zindagi at 9 and Paterson at 10.

Fantastic beasts this week becomes the top total grossing movie on the chart while Storks is the longest running film at 7 weeks.
