Monsters of all various types have been in the order of the day in recent weeks, Logan then Jong last week and this week Disney bring us their live action retelling of Beauty and the Beast.
The Mouse House have done a fantastic job in recent years of bringing their animated classic to a live audience, Cinderella and The Jungle Book are two which did really well.
Now is the time of the greatest animation of all time to get a live action film and audiences are clearly wanting it as the film lands to an incredible $170 million opening weekend.
Kong in its second weekend fell to number 2 with a gross of $28.8 million, this brings the films total US box office to $110.1 million after 10 days of play.
Logan at 3 is now the highest grossing Wolverine movie is the US and with $184 million in total grosses could catch the lowest X-Men movies.
Also new this week is The Belko Experiment at number 7 with a debut gross os $4 million.
Longest running film on the top 10 is once again Hidden Figures which has now been around for 13 weeks, but Logan is now the highest total grossing movie.
There is no move at the top of the UK video chart this week as Disney's Cinderella keeps a tight hold of the number 1 spot for a second week. Highest new film is at number 2, a DTV (direct to video) film about the Kray brothers called Rise of the Krays.
Released to coincide with the cinematic release of Legend starring Tom Hardy as the twin brothers. Rise of the Krays stars Simon Cotton and Kevin Leslie as the twins and documents their early life before their infamy as gangsters.
The film was released in 16th May 2015 but made no impact on the box office.
Also new this week are: Far From The Madding Crowd and number 3, Monsters Dark Continent at 4.
Pixar didn't release a cinematic film in 2014 so the new film from the animated studio was going to be a big deal, and Inside Out is critically one of their best and makes an impressive UK box office debut.,p> Entering the chart at the top Inside Out takes in £7.3 million on it's debut, compared to their last film Monsters University this was over double its debut.
It is though way behind the leader in the Pixar crown, Toy Story 3 which took an incredible £21 million on it's debut and went on to become one of the highest grossing animation of all time.
Inside Out has a good start and is inline with Finding Nemo from 2003, it will easily go over the £30 million mark in the coming days.
Last weeks top film, Ant-Man, falls to number 2 this week with a £2.5 million weekend gross raising its total to £9.6.
One other new entry on the top 10 this week is Southpaw new at 4 with £1.6 million.
Historical Box Office
A year ago
Dawn of The Planet of The Apes extended its stay at the top of the box office by another week leaving Hercules to debut at number 2.
Five years ago
Toy Story 3 made its very impressive debut at the top moving aside Inception which fell to number 2.
Ten years ago
Fantastic Four over took the number one spot on its debut week of release while Madagascar fell to number 2.
Fifteen years ago
Stuart Little moved to the top of the box office after 3 weeks on the chart knocking Chicken Run down to number 2, High Fidelity was the highest new film at number 4.
Twenty years ago
Stallone's Judge Dredd was the top new film making its debut at number 1 knocking Batman Forever down to number 2
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
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.
As expected this week there was no stopping Dawn of the Planet of the Apes as it very easily and without competition took to the top of the charts on it;s debut weekend.
Grossing £8.7 million from Thursday to Sunday it took more than the rest of the box office combined.
Dawn well and truly out preformed it predecessor Rise of the planet of the Apes which took £5.8 million on it's debut weekend in August 2011, it went on to gross £20.5 in total.
Dawn should go on to out-gross that film and could come close to £25 - 30 million in the UK.
Also worth a mention this weekend is two even movies that got themselves inside the top 5 on the box office chart, Monty Python Live (Mostly) made number 4 with £1.8 million which Andre Rieu took him Maastricht concert to number 5 with £830,000.
Other new film to debut this week are:
Pudsey The Dog The Movie at 7
This time last year Monsters University held on to the top spot which mean The Worlds End debuted at 2.
Five years ago Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince made it's debut at the top of the box office knocking the previous number 1, Ice Age: Dawn of The Dinosaurs, to number 2.
Ten years ago say Spider-Man 2 make it's cinematic debut at the top of the box office knocking Shrek 2 into the number 2 spot.
Fifteen years ago was an historical time in cinema as the much anticipated, and to an extent much hated, Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace made it's UK debut at the top, 2 months after it's US debut. The Mummy fell to number 2.
