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.

11th October 2017

Its taken 35 years to produce a sequel to one of the greatest sci-fi movies of all time and Blade Runner 2049 does what its predecessor couldn't and tops the box office.

Its hard to draw comparisons when there is such a gap between two parts but Blade Runner was considered a flop on release and only later was considered a classic, although not setting the box office alight as expected the sequel does manage a £6 million debut.

The reviews and the anticipation should have perhaps demanded a £10 million plus opening, but perhaps the long running time and stylised cinematography put people off.

Falling to number 2 after 2 weeks on top is Kingsman The Golden Circle which still manages a very respectable £2.1 million.

This brings the films total to date to £19.4 million, this means the film has in 3 weeks outgrossed the originals 9 week gross of £16 million.

Also new this week is The Mountain Between Us at number 4 with £0.7 million and the event feature Nora from the Met Opera (Norma Met Opera 2017) at number 7.

For the first time in 8 weeks there is a new highest total grossing movie, although it is Despicable Me 3 which is also the longest running film with 15 weeks, it has grossed £47 million.

27th September 2017

This week the Michael Vaughn directed Kingsman The Golden Circle takes over the top of the UK chart with ease, IT makes a respectable fall to number 2.

Following on from the 2015 film Kingsman The Golden Circle this week makes its debut at number 1 with a weekend gross of £8.5 million.

Kingsman had a debut weekend of just over £4 million do the sequel has double that gross and has already made half of the originals total gross.

With this debut Kingsman 2 should be able to getting in the region of £25 - £30 million quite easily.

After a couple of weeks at the top IT falls to the runner up spot although it still manages a very respectable £2.8 million.

This brings the films total gross to £26.4 million, with plenty of milage left in the film we could be looking at £35 million total gross.

With the new Kingsman movie out this week studios didn't want to put anything of note against it so there are no other new film on the top ten.

27th September 2017

IT has a good run at the US box office, and continues to do well, but it gave up the crown to Kingsman The Golden Circle this weekend.

Not a fantastic opening weekend for the British secret agent sequel but its $39 million was enough to see it open bigger than the first film.

As we enter the winter season with a number of big film on the horizon this will effect Kingsman 2s long term appeal, but for now its on a roll.

IT falls off the top after a couple of weeks at number 1 to number 2 with a weekend gross of around $30 million.

This pushed the films total gross after 3 weeks in the US to $266 million, and it is this week top total grossing movie on the US box office.

Also new this week are The LEGO Ninjago Movie which enters at number 3, after Batman and the Lego movie maybe a little disappointing, Friend Request at number 7 and Stronger at number 9.

Longest running film on the US chart this week is Wind River which this week notches up its 8th weekend.

22nd September 2017

The power of IT at the UK box office was far to strong this week and with ease it remains at the top of the box office while Judy Dench stars in the highest new entry.

Warner Bros. continue to market the horror film IT to great effect as the film takes £6 million which is only a 40% drop from its debut.

This brings the films total gross to an excellent £21.1 million from 10 days of release which is putting the film on for easily a £35 million total take in the UK.

Highest new film of the week is Victoria and Abdul directed by Stephen Frears and starring Judi Dench.

The film takes £1.8 million for the weekend which places it at number 2 on this weeks chart.

Also new this week is Mother! which enters at number 3, and with rave reviews and much publicity takes a quite disappointing £0.8 million.

American Assassin is also new at 4 and The Jungle Bunch makes a new entry at number 6.

For the fifth straight week the longest running film is Despicable Me 3 now with 12 weeks while Dunkirk is the highest total grossing movie with £55 million.

13th September 2017

After a couple of weeks of very little excitement at the Uk box office this week explodes with the release of Warner Bros. IT which dominates the chart and easily enters at the top.

IT enters the Uk box office with just over £10 million which puts in in the top 100 for UK best opening films and it is the only film on the top 10 to gross over a million.

The hype that has been put into the marketing of the film has been huge and it has paid off, and with favourable reviews, and Stephen King being a favourite in the UK the film was bound to do well.

With nothing of note coming out this weekend coming IT is bound to continue at the top at least for the next week.

American Made falls from the top to number 2 this week with a gross of just over half a million, this brings the films total gross to £4.3 million after 3 weeks of play.

Once again Despicable Me 3 is the longest running film of the chart with 11 weeks and once again Dunkirk os the highest total grossing film with an excellent £55 million, it is now the 19th highest grossing film ever in the UK.

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.

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.

18th July 2017

The last in the trilogy of Planet of The Apes prequel movies opens at the top of the Uk box office this week knocking Spider-Man Homecoming off after just a single week.

War For The Planet of The Apes which stars Woody Harrelson and Any Serkis hits the top with a weekend gross of £7.1 million, a very good gross for a critically praised film.

The trilogy of films has been constant on its debut and this does better than Rise but not quite at good as Dawn's £8 million debut.

With this in mind I'd expect this to end its run in the £30 million region.

Spider-Man Homecoming falls to number 3 this week leapfrogging over Despicable Me 3 by the tightest of margins with a £3.7 million weekend.

This brings the films total gross to £16 million after 10 days of release and is looking set to match the first Spider-Man film from 2002.

Despicable Me at number 2 took £3.8 million and has now grossed £26 million from 3 weekends of release.

For the Monday - Sunday week the top film would have been Spider-Man with a £7.4 million weekly gross with Apes second and Despicable Me 3 third.

For the third weekend running The Boss Baby is the longest running film with 15 weeks and the highest grossing with £28 million.

Blade Runner 2049 gets a new trailer - plenty of Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford but no more story revealed.

Good news is it looks like this well and truly retains the look and feel of the original despite not being directed by Ridley Scott.

Release date in the UK is October 16th.

17th July 2017

The prequel trilogy of The Planet of The Apes concludes this year with the release of War For The Planet of The Apes, and the much loved series makes its debut at the top.

Directed by Matt Reeves and starring Woody Harrelson and a motion capped Andy Serkis the third film in this trilogy makes its US debut with $56 million.

Spider-Man Homecoming spends just a week at the top and falls to number 2 with a weekend gross of $45.2 million.

This brings the film total US gross to $208 million from 10 days of play, good for a Spider-Man movie and about inline with most of the others if not a little higher, especially from its immediate predecessor.

Also new this week is horror film Wish Upon which opens in 7th place with $5.5 million.

Wonder Woman it yet again the longest stay on the box office with a 7 week run and the highest total grossing film with $380 million from the US box office.

21st June 2017

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 doesnt 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.

12th June 2017

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.

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.

The Red Turtle also makes its debut at number 9 with £91,000 on its opening weekend of release, although it is on a limited run.

Highest total grossing film and longest run on the box office is Beauty and The Beast, and incredible 11 week run has the film grossing just over £71 million pound.

24th May 2017

Directed by Guy Ritchie King Arthur Legend of the Sword makes its UK debut at the top of the box office, but its an unconvincing start to its box office run.

Taking £2.5 million from the weekend the film which had a massive budget and is set to start a new series of films was expected to smash its way into the box office from studio Warner Bros.

For the director this is below the debut of his top grossing films the Sherlock Holmes movies starring Robert Downey Jnr. which both debuted in the £3 million mark.

Falling into second place is Alien: Covenant which only just missed out on spending a second week at the top with a weekend gross of £2.1 million.

This brings the films total gross to £10 million, Prometheus at this point in its run was doing very similar business so expect this to end its run with a similar £20 million+.

Also new this week is Snatched starring Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn at number 4 with a debut of £842,000 and Colossal starring Anne Hathaway at number 9 with £150,000.

4th April 2017

This week animated feature The Boss Baby takes a command over the box office and removes Beaty and The Beast from the top.

Making its debut this week Dreamworks new franchise film The Boss Baby which grosses $50 million on its debut.

The animations studio last release Home had an impressive run and debuted just a shade higher, if The Boss Baby can do similar numbers then were looking at close to $200 million US gross.

It was a close run race but Beaty and The Beast falls to number 2 with $47.5 million, the films total US gross is now $395 million after 3 weeks of release.

Ghost in The Shell makes its debut at number 3 this week with $19 million and much further down the box office is The Zookeepers Wife at number 10 with a debut of $3.3 million.

Highest total grossing movie on the US box office is Beaty and The Beast while the longest running film is Get Out, 6 weeks of release and this week is at number 7.

15th March 2017

It was paws V claws at this weeks box office as Kong Skull Island and Logan battled it out for the top spot and the new film of Kong won the battle.

From the same production team that brought us Godzilla in 2014 Kong Skull Island is set in the same universe and is set to start a "monsters" universe similar to that of the Marvel and DC cinematic universes.

Kong opens similar to Godzilla with just over £6 million, but the film was far better received than Godzilla with the critics with a surprise amount of praise for the monster film.

Godzilla went on to gross £17 million in the UK and there is nothing to suggest this wont do similar if not better.

Logan falls into second place this week with £3.8 million after a single week at the top, this brings the films total gross to £16 million after 10 days of release.

This means that on its second weekend the film is already the best of the solo Wolverine movies and it still has plenty of milage left.

A couple of interesting things to note this week, if the chart were taken on a Monday - Sunday then Logan would have still been the top film.

Also Moulin Rouge which is on a Secret Cinema run at the moment and is number 13 on the weekend chart would have been number 4 with £2 million for the week.

There are no other new released in the top 10 this week but Elle makes a new entry at number 11 with £0.2 million and Dancer is new at 12 also with £0.2 million.

Longest run this week is Lion with 8 weeks on the chart and highest total grossing movie is Sing with £28 million.

Highest new film of the weekend is the reboot of the gone stale Rings franchise, the last film was The Ring Two released in 2005.

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.

Second on the chart this week is Troll which debuts with $45.6 million and coming in third is Hacksaw Ridge which takes $14.7 million.

Falling from the top after 2 weeks is Boo! A Madea Halloween, the film lands at 4 this week with $7.8 million, still good considering Halloween is a distant memory now.

Normally with such a large opening we would be looking at a long term run and large gross, but this year has proved that big opening weeks don't necessarily mean long cinema runs.

The Life of Pets makes it three weeks at the top with a £3.6 million gross over the weekend, this brings the films total gross to £22.6 million.

Absolutely Fabulous The Movie, not on its second week takes £5.7 million over the whole week, just slightly better that Pets, clearly showing when the 2 different audiences go to the cinema.

Also new this week: Now You See Me 2 lands at number 3, Indian film Sultan has the best debut ever for an Indian film at number 6 with just over a million pound and The Neon Demon lands at 9.

11th July 2016

This weekend the Sasha Baron Cohen movie Grimsby makes its home video debut a the top of the chart knocking off Deadpool after 2 weeks.

Grimsby was released at the UK box office on 26th February 2016 after a massive marketing campaign it made its debut at number 2.<> The film was not received that well with critics or the public alike and it only managed a 4 week run on the UK box office, but did manage another 8 weeks in cinemas before it ended its run.

Its UK box office gross was £5.2 million which isn't too bad and is fairly typical of a british box office comedy thats not a gigantic hit.

Falling to number 2 this week is the fan favourite Marvel superhero that Disney turned down Deadpool.

The film has had a great run at the top of the video chart and will most likely hang around for quite a while and get another boost when shops discount the film.

Also new this week is Zoolander No 2, the sequel everyone wanted, then no one wanted at number 5, direct to video Underworld Legend of The Jinn at 17 and Secret In Their Eyes at 18.

5th July 2016

Despite competition from the British beloved comedy that is Ab Fab, The Life of Pets remains at the top of the UK box office for a second weekend.

In its second weekend The Life of Pets takes a gross of £4.7 million, this brings the films total gross to an very good £16.6 million after 2 weeks, the films weekly gross is over £7 million.

Highest new entry of the week in Absolutely Fabulous The Move which makes its debut at number 2, a weekend gross of £4.02 million.

The film version of the British comedy comes nearly 25 years after the TV series started on BBC and amazingly it still has all the original cast including leads Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders.

A good run should be in order for the film although as is often the case with TV to movie adaptation it will probably spend a lot of time in cinemas but out of the charts.

Also new this week is Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart in Central Intelligence which is new at 3.

Highest total grossing and longest running movie on the box office this week once again is The Jungle Book which over 12 weeks has grossed £47 million.

28th June 2016

The UK box office this weeks has a new number one film in the shape of The Secret Life of Pets. the latests film from the makers of Despicable Me and Minions.

An excellent weekend gross of £9.5 million sees the film enter ahead of the weeks other big film Independence Day Resurgence.

Despite having the connection to the Despicable Me franchise The Secret Life of Pets for a new franchise makes an very good debut, in comparison it is far higher that the first Despicable Me but lower than the franchises other films.

With the summer holidays in the coming weeks this could have staying power, and there is little competition until mid July.

Also new this week is Independence Day Resurgence which makes its debut at number 2 with just over £5 million, its been 20 years but the original debuted to £16 million.

Last weeks top film, The Conjuring 2 The Enfield Case, falls to number 3 with a total gross of £7.7 million after a £1.5 million second weekend.

28th June 2016

On the UK video chart this week there was no moving any of the top 3 as Deadpool, Dads Arm and The Revenant all stayed in the same positions.

This makes it a 2 week stay at the top for Deadpool and of course in the process Marvel (but not Disney) showing an ever strong fan base.

With a static top 3 it means that the highest new film of the week comes in at number 4, Alvin and his Chipmunks starring in Alvin and The Chipmunks The Road Chip.

The film made its debut on 12th February 2016 and entered the UK box office at number 2, kept off the top spot by Deadpool.

As with the other films in the series it enjoyed a relatively successful box office chart run staying for 8 weeks in total.

During that time it grossed a very nice £16.5 million in ticket sales, and could see the film get a 5th entry! In the UK it is the 262nd highest grossing movie, across the globe it didn't have quite the same impact and made $234.7 million.

The only other new film on the video chart this week is The Forest, a small hit from late February 2016.

20th June 2016

Marvel's adult orientated superhero movie Deadpool is the top new film of the week on the UK video sales list.

Deadpool was released at in the UK on 12th February 2016 and entered the box office at the top after a god advertising campaign.

The film had a really good run at the box office spending 3 weeks at the top and managing an 8 week run on the box office.

The film took £37.6 million at the UK box office making it the 54th top grossing movie and it took $775.6 million across the globe making it the 61st top grossing movie globally.

The Revenant fell from the top where it entered last week to number 3 this week.

Also new this week is Dads Army at number 2 and 13 Hours The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi at number 6, Bone Tomahawk makes a new entry at number 8 and The Finest Hour enters at number 16, finally Point Break (the remake) is new at 20.

14th June 2016

Its still unusual that a film will climb to the top of the box office, but this week with many people otherwise occupied with the start of the Euro 2016 championships Me Before You climbs to the top.

Last week the film entered at number 3 but this week manages to top the chart, and is the only film this week to take over £1 million in weekend grosses.

The film not has a total UK gross of £4.4 million and with the Euro's with us for the next 3 weeks who knows what could happen?

With a lot of studio's not willing to release new film at the moment the rest of the chart reads very similar to last week, the highest new film is the Melissa McCarthy vehicle at number 7 which manages just below £600,000 for the weekend.

Highest total grossing movie is The Jungle book which has taken £45.1 million after 10 weeks and longest run on the chart is 11 weeks for Zootopia.

Worthy or not this week is that this week's cinema had the lowest total take of 2016 and the lowest since September last year.

24th May 2016

On the UK video front this week Stallone's Oscar nominated performance in Creed makes its debut at the top.

Creed, which is basically a Rocky sequel, made its debut on the box office chart of 15th January 2016 where it entered at number 3.

The film was critically acclaimed on its release but didn't manage to hit the high notes of the Rocky series and only spent 4 weeks on the box office.

The film managed a fairly decent £5.6 million over its run but it is low for a Rocky inspired movie which has many fans in the UK.

It's actually hard comparing this to previous Rocky films due to price inflation in cinema tickets but the last Rocky film, Rocky Balboa, spent a similar number of weeks on the chart but took £8 million.

The Hateful Eight falls from the top spot where it debuted last week to number 2 this week.

Also new this week are: The Danish Girl at number 4 and I Am Wrath, a John Travolta movie, at number 6.

24th May 2016

This week across the world the latest X-Men film X-Men Apocalypse made its debut and took over at the top but it wasn't all bad news for Captain America: Civil War.

X-Men took $106.6 million dollars with its launch in 76 countries, but not America, and took over as the top film.

In the world of cinema it is becoming quite common for one Marvel franchise to take over from another Marvel franchise, especially when from competing studios.

With 41% of the non American market and topping the X-Men debuts in many of them this latest version of the X-Men films could be one of the biggest to date.

Captain America: Civil War has now become the first movie of 2016 to break the $1 billion mark (although The Force Awakens did it in 2016) and the film now stands at $1.05 billion and is number 3 this week.

It is also of course the highest total grossing movie on the world box office and is still showing in 55 countries, although with this and Batman V Superman slowing later in their run are we starting to see a letup in the superhero dominance of the box office? Here is the world box office top 5

  1. X-Men: Apocalypse - $101.6 million
  2. The Angry Birds Movie - $94 million
  3. Captain America: Civil War - $30.7 million
  4. The Divergent Series: Allegiant - $9.9 million
  5. The Jungle Book - $7.4 million

20th May 2016

It was a close run thing this week between Captain America: Civil War and The Angry Birds Movie making its debut but in the end the Marvel film won.

Civil War now makes it three weeks at the top and this week adds £2.7 million to its gross which has now soared to £32.1 million.

The film is now the 5th highest grossing of the year and before it finishes its run it should beat Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice and Deadpool, currently at 4 and 3 respectively.

The Angry Birds Movie is the highest new film at number 2 which on its debut takes £2.1 million.

Aiming squarely at kids but also appealing to adults that hooked on the game the film loosely follows the plot of the games.

The film should do well over the coming half term but will have limited appeal after that.

Longest stay by a film on the box office this week is Zootopia with 8 weeks and the highest grossing movie is The Jungle Book at £39.3 million after 5 weeks.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens wont be shifted from the top of the video charts and is still outselling for the third week in a row all in its path.

The last time we saw this king of dominance of video charts was back in 2013 when Disney released Frozen for sale, they sure are hitting the right note.

Highest new film of the week is new at 2, Daddys Home which was released at UK cinemas on 25th December last year.

The film was a relatively big hit considering it was up agains The Force Awakens and manages an acceptable 7 week run on the box office.

In that time it grossed a nice £16.3 million which in terms of stars Ferrell and Wahlberg isn't bad.

For Farrell it is his 3rd biggest film and for Wahlberg it is his 4th biggest film in the UK.

Also new this week is In The Heart of The Sea which lands at number 3.

4th April 2016

On the UK video chart this week the Osacar nominated film Bridge of Spies makes its debut at the top.

Bridge of Spies was released at the UK cinemas on 27th November 2015 and made its debut at number 4 of that week with a £1.6 million weekend.

The film had a rather good 8 week run on box office top 15 before dropping out the chart during its awards buzz.

The film managed to make £7.4 million at the UK box office during its run, worldwide the film managed to gross $160.9 million.

Last weeks top film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 falls in to second place after a couple of weeks at the top.

Mockingjay Part 2 was released in the UK on 20th November 2015 where it entered the box office at the top with a weekend gross of £11.2 million.

The film has a good 9 week run on the box office with 4 of those week at the top before it took a steady drop down.

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.

29th March 2016

There was never going to be any other outcome this week as we see Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice take over at the top with little competition.

The superhero movie that is to kick off the Justice League movies from Warner Bros. took the top with an amazing weekly world gross of $424.1 million from 67 countries.

Not a record to highest total grossing debut but certainly a record fot the pre-summer season.

Zootopia has had a good run but this week falls down to number 2 with $65 million and has a total world gross of $696.7 million, and is on track to become Disney's highest grossing film.

Highest total grossing film on the world top 10 box office this week is Deadpool at number 9 this week which has now grossed $745.9 million.

Here is the full world grossing top 10:

  1. Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice - $424,100,000
  2. Zootopia - $65,638,000
  3. My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 - $26,116,075

  8. 10 Cloverfield Lane - $8,500,000
  9. Deadpool - $8,000,000
  10. London Has Fallen - $6,926,000

16th March 2016

Stopping London Has Fallen in its tracks after only one week at the top King Fu Panda 3 flies in with a high kick that no one could stop.

Taking a reasonable £4.7 million from the weekend this is the lowest debuting film for the series to date.

Kung Fu Panda 2 and the original broth managed to gross in the region of £6 million on their debuts.

With Disney's Zootopia just round the corner and getting great reviews Kung Fu Panda 3 could well struggle to bring in decent numbers.

Falling from the top spot to number 3 after its debut at the top is London Has Fallen, a second week gross of £1.8 million brings its total to £6.4 million after 10 days.

Highest total grossing movie on the box offie this week is Deadpool which after 5 weeks has taken £35.7 million.

Ending the 3 week run of Deadpool this week is London Has Fallen which takes over on its debut weekend of release.

The sequel to the 2013 film about the White House takes over at the top with a debut weekend gross of £3.2 million.

It could be the location of course but London debuts with a £1 million gross higher than the original film, plenty of competition down the line to see this disappear quite quickly.

Deadpool falls to number 2 this week, the superhero film is still doing good numbers at the box office and this week does £1.5 million to brings its total to £34.1 million.

1st March 2016

With the release of the latest Bond movie on home video there was never really any doubt as to what would be at the top this week, and Spectre reaches number one on its debut.

Spectre was released at UK cinemas as 26th October 2015, an unusual day for a film release as it was a Monday, but it gave it a full week release.

This full week gave the film a £41.2 million pound opening which is the highest ever in the UK, but with most film opening on a Friday this is a bit misleading, although arguably the built up speculation from Skyfall meant it may well have done the feat anyway.

Of course the film entered at the top of the box office where it stayed for 3 weeks, its second and third weeks grosses being more than most film make in either a week or a full run.

Unlike Skyfall though the film did burn quick and bright then fade, for a film of this size an 11 week run is good but not great although it has spent 5 weeks in cinemas outside the top of the box office.

The total gross to date in the UK is £95.1 million and it was the highest grossing film in the UK in 2015, although Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the highest grossing film released in 2015.

It is the 3rd highest grossing film in the UK ever. In comparison to Skyfall is fell short, the previous Bond film was the first film in Britain to make over £100 million and is the 2nd highest grossing film.

Worldwide the film has taken $879.9 million and is the 40th top grossing film ever, compared to Skyfall it again falls short, that film took over $1 billion across the world and is the 14th highest grossing.

Hotel Transylvania 2 falls to number 2 this week after a couple of weeks at the top.

7th February 2016

At the top of the UK video charts this week the Krays bio-pic Legend remains at the top despite a rush of new films.

The highest of the new film is Maze Runner The Scorch Trials, the sequel to the 2014 film The Maze Runner.

The Scorch Trials was released in UK cinemas on 11 September 2015 and it entered the chart at number 2, behind Legend! A 6 week cinema run saw the film take a UK gross of £8.6 million in the UK, worldwide the film managed $312.3 million making it the 331st highest grossing world wide move, in the US it took $81 million.

Also new this week is: Sicario at number 3, Macbeth at number 4, Miss You Already at number 7 and The Walk at number 8.

18th January 2016

After 4 week Star Wars: The Force Awakens ends its run at the top and drops down the third place making room for Ride Along 2.

The sequel comedy makes its US debut at the top with a gross os $34 million from just over 3,000 cinemas and a screen average of $10.721.

Top Oscar nominated The Revenant remains at 2 this week with the award ceremony certanly giving the film a boost, and with the film destined to win big this film could stay for a bit.

The Force Awakens fall to number 3 this wee with $25.1 million which increases it total to gross to $851 in the US, far and away making to top grossing film ever there.

Also new is 13 Hours The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi at number 4 and Norm of The North at number 6.

14th December 2015

Mission:Impossible Rogue Nation this week takes over as the top film on the Video charts on its debut week of release.

Rogue Nation was release at the UK box office, after being brought forward, on the 31st July 2015 to good reviews and a number 1 debut.

The film had a good run on the box office staying on the official top 15 for 9 weeks and had an extra 4 weeks floating around the box office.

Rogue Nation is the 172nd highest grossing film in the UK with a total gross of £21 million, it is also the 77th highest grossing film in the world with $682.1 million.

Ant-Man after a new entry at the top falls down to number 4 this week.

Also new on the UK video charts this week is Pixels at number 3 and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. at number 6.

30th November 2015

This week world box office chart has The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 staying at the top for a second week.

The last of The Hunger Games series takes $113 million from 93 countries this week which brings its total to $440 million in total world grosses.

This total is pushing the film to end its run as the lowest of the series but only a little.

None of the film on the top ten this week are new film but highest improved film is The Good Dinosaur which sits at number 2 this week with $67.9 million from 40 countries, the film has taken $84.2 million in total.

The Good Dinosaur has not had the best start to its cinematic run and will end up one of the lowest grossing Pixar movies.

The highest total grossing film on the box office this week is Spectre, $43 million this week and still released in 94 countries the film has grossed $750 million worldwide.

23rd November 2015

The last instalment in The Hunger Games series makes its debut at the top of the global box office thanks largely to big debuts from the UK and China.

A debut weekend of $247 million globally is on par with the rest of the series and the film should end the series on a strong note, despite lacklustre reviews.

Ending its run at the top after 4 weeks is Spectre which this week adds $80.3 million to its global gross.

A runaway hit for the Bond franchise Spectre has now taken $677.8 million globally, this is on par with Skyfall but that film had good legs unlike Spectre which seems to be tailoring off, $1 billion could be tough.

Spectre is also the highest grossing total gross on the chart this week.

The Night Before is also new on the global stage making its debut at number 6 with $10.1 million.

Here is the full global box office:

  1. Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 - $247,025,000
  2. Spectre - $80,300,000
  3. Snoopy and Charlie Brown The Peanuts Movie - $14,100,000

  9. Spanish Affair 2 - $7,400,000 $7,400,000
  10. Hotel Transylvania 2 - $6,575,000

23rd November 2015

In North America this week the final instalment of the lucrative and successful The Hunger Games series finished with a number 1 debut for The Hinger Games Mockingly part 1.

With a $101 million debut it is the lowest debuting film of the series if only by a tiny amount, the poor reviews of the films haven't helped, this all means the film may have a short chart life.

Mockingjay ends the 2 week run at the top for Spectre which this week falls into the runner up spot with $14.6 million.

The total US gross for the latest Bond film now sits at $153.7 million, its a bit drop for the film in its third week which will make the film struggle to get past the US gross of Skyfall.

Other new films on the US box office this week are: Christmas film The Night Before at number 4 and The Secret in Their Eyes at number 5.

10th November 2015

Last weekend on the UK box office the latest Bond film Spectre was far too strong during its second week of release to be knocked from the top.

Still pulling in the audiences during its second weekend Spectre scores £13 million which brings its total UK gross after 2 weekends of release to £64 million.

The film is still on track with the previous Bond movie Skyfall and could potentially give the film a run for its money as the top grossing UK film ever, despite less favourable reviews.

Although by Sunday Spectre has not quite become the top UK film of 2015 by Monday night it will have out grossed Jurassic World.

Highest new film of the week is the low budget Brooklyn which enters the UK box office at number 3 with a debut gross of £1.04 million.

Top total grossing film on the box office, after just 2 weeks of play, is Spectre.

3rd November 2015

Its been an interesting week in the UK with the release of the latest James Bond movie Spectre, most unusual of all is that the film got its release after its UK premiere on Monday night rather than the usual Friday.

This opening meant that its weekend figures, although fantastic, were not a true reflection of the usual take on a debut weekend.

To cut a long story short Spectre has done amazingly well, it has the largest UK opening of any film, beating Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban 10 year record by nearly double, it also has the biggest single day gross for any film in the UK, Tuesday and in fact Wednesday.

The films weekly take, from its opening on Monday through to Sunday was £41.3 million, not only the highest ever but also higher than the previous Bond outing Skyfall, which is the highest grossing film ever in the UK.

Its Friday to Sunday total is just shy of £20 million which puts it just behind Skyfall, but that film opened on a Friday, its hard not to believe that Spectre wouldn't have beaten all these figure had it opened on the traditional Friday.

Spectre thus makes its debut at the top of the UK box office with an incredible weekly gross and with no film daring to compete with it, it is also the only new entry on the box office this week, and with very few new film in the coming weeks it will stay a while.

All thats left now is for it to become the top grossing film ever in the UK, it needs over £102 million to achieve this, but with the debut it is entirely possible.

2nd November 2015

Despite being released in only 6 European countries, and having its release date on a Monday night, there was never going to be a bigger film than the new Bond movie on its opening week.

Hence the new outing for James Bond, Spectre, outperforms all in its path and is the biggest film across the world this week with a massive $80.4 million from 6 countries.

Good new for the franchise is that this outstrips the previous movie Skyfall and the film is currently on tract to be the biggest film in the franchise.

With the film opening in America this coming Friday it should see the film comfortably sit at the top for the coming weeks.

Falling to number 3 this week with $28.4 is The Martian, which surrenders the top spot and is also outgrossed by Hotel Transylvania 2 which hangs on to number 2, it does have the widest release with 83 countries.

The Martian has done amazingly well at the world box office and has current taken $428,4 million over its 6 week run and is still playing in 56 countries.

Highest total grossing movie this week is Ant-Man with has to date grossed $513,7 million during its cinema run.

After last weeks biggest selling debut of the year for Jurassic World and its subsequent move to the top of the UK Video chart there was no stopping it and it makes it a second week this week.

Jurassic World is not only the biggest box office hit of the year but it looks to be the biggest selling video of the year outselling the current top video Fifty Shades of Grey.

Top new entry for the week is Mr. Homes which enters the video chart at number 2 on its debut week of sale.

Starring Ian McKellen Mr. Holes was released at the UK box office on 19th June 2015 and entered the chart at number 4 that week.

The film managed a 4 week run on the official chart but also had a massive extra 11 weeks in cinemas which boosted its total gross, the film made £2.6 million over 15 weeks.

Also new this week: The 2015 remake of Poltergeist enters the chart on Halloween weekend at number 4 and little known Nicolas Cage film Pay the Ghost enters at 8.

29th October 2015

We still have just under 3 months to go before we reach the end of the year but already the top 6 movies of 2015 have made more than 2014's top movie.

Here is the comparison of 2014's top 6 and 2015's top 6, so far:

    2014
  1. The Lego Movie £34,133,383
  2. Dawn of The Planet of The Apes £33,764,545
  3. The Inbetweeners 2 £33,387,932
  4. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 £29,517,393
  5. The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies £28,759,574
  6. Guardians of The Galaxy £28,536,999
    2015
  1. Jurassic World £63,674,773
  2. Avengers Age of Ultron £48,334,257
  3. Minions £46,735,377
  4. Fast and Furious 7 £38,385,021
  5. Inside Out £38,375,834
  6. Fifty Shades of Grey £34,662,255
With still just under 3 month of the year to go we could see the full top 10 of 2015 beating 2014's top film.

The Martian is still doing very well at the UK box office and could reach 2014's The Lego Movies figure, Spectre has just been released and will give 2015's Jurassic World a run for its money.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 is released in a couple of weeks and stands a good chance of making over £35 million.

As if leaving the best to last we have of course Disney/Lucasfilms will release Star Wars: The Force Awakens on December 18th.

An interesting scenario with this film, being released so late in the year much of its gross will come in 2016, but I fully expect it to break various records during its first couple of weeks and it will make over £35 million before the end of the year.

Check back each week to see how these and other new films perform at the UK box office.

Spider-Man's second amazing film was released at the box office on April 18th this year with a debut week at the top of the box office chart.

21st August 2014

Unsurprising this week that the comedy smash The Inbetweeners 2 stays at the top of the UK box office for another week, also no strong new releases helped it's cause.

Proving to be as popular as the original, The Inbetweeners stayed at the top of the tree with a weekend take of £3.4 million which brings its 10 day total gross to £22.3 million.

The first movie had taken £25 million by this point in it's run so this movie is a tiny bit behind but should end up at about the same figure by the end of it's cinema run.

Holding steady at 2 is Guardians of the Galaxy which means that the highest new film is The Expendables 3 at number 3.

This is the lowest grossing film in the (current) trilogy with the first film taking £3 million on it's opening and the followup taking £2 million.

Also worth mentioning this week is Disneys frozen which despite having had a few months on home video now makes a re-appearance on the box office at number 15 with a nearly £100,000 take.

On the world stage it has made $473 million making it the 135th top film ever. Compared to the first Rio film it outperformed it but only just.

The battle of the sexes raged at the US box office this week, and the women won by a clear margin.

Cameron Diaz stars along with Leslie Mann and Kate Upton is the top film across the US this week The Other Woman.

Falling from the top spot after a three week run as the champion is Captain America: The Winter Soldier which this weeks is at 2.

The male led Brick Mansion (Paul Walkers last completed film) fails to make a massive impact and debuts in the US at 5.

15th April 2014

In the US this week there was no stopping the Marvel might with audiences keeping Captain America: The Winter Soldier as the top film.

Taking $41 million for the weekend it was enough to stop the biggest new film of the week from topping.

The biggest new film of the week was Rio 2, with a weekend take of $39 million it was not quiet enough to topple Captain America but it gave it a run for it's money.

12th February 2014

After an impressive 3 week run at the top Wolf of Wall Street this week surrenders to animated feature Mr Peabody and Sherman.

An early half term treat for the kids, Mr Peabody makes a splash at the top with £3.9 million over the weekend beating out quite easily a challenge from the Robocop reboot which lands at 2 with £2.4 million.

The Wolf of Wall Street dips to number 3 with a weekend take of £1.6 million bringing it's total to £17 million.

Fifteen years ago (and not to sound too receptive) A Bugs Life took over at the top on it's debut week knocking Shakespeare In Love into the runner up spot.

Finally twenty years ago Mrs Doubtfire was still the big film of February with Free Willy proving to be the big new film of the month.

29th January 2014

This week makes it 2 in a row for DiCaprio and Scorsese as The Wolf of Wall Street retains it's hold as the top film in the country.

Taking in &pounfd;3.6 million over the weekend nothing gave it a run for it's money, the total for the film is now £10.9 million from 10 days.

Highest new film is Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit, a re-boot of the series and the fifth film to portray the character. Maybe a little disappointing the film only took £1.2 million and lands at 3.

A year ago Les Mis was still riding the wave of popularity at the top of the box office while Spielberg's Lincoln entered at 3 as the highest new film, the top 5 were all Oscar contenders.

Five years ago it was still Oscar winner Slumdog Millionaire at the top with the Tom Cruise vehicle Valkyrie landing in second place.

Twenty years ago Mrs. Doubtfire was the big film of January.

21st June 2013

Released this week at UK cinemas, Brad Pitt is fighting Zombies in World Was Z, an apocalyptic set movie based on the novel by Max Brooks.

There has been some buzz surrounding this film in the run up to it's release and Brad Pitt is always a major box office potential but Superman will seriously effects it's box office and probably stop being a number one hit.

Ethan Hawk and Julie Delpy continue their relationship onscreen on Before Midnight, the third film to feature these characters. Again directed by Richard Linklater.

The series has a fan base, but it's small and the film will have the same impact on home video so a top 10 hit is probably on the cards.

Finally Dwayne Johnson stars as a desperate father searching for the truth in Snitch.

Johnson has a fan base but the subject matter may turn people off, this may miss out on the top 10 altogether.

6th June 2013

The top 5 on the UK box office this week was almost static with The Wolf Pack leading the way in their 3rd Hangover outing.

The Hangover Part III stayed at the top for a second weekend in a row this week with no competition from any new releases meaning the only movement in the top 5 was Star Trek into Darkness climbing 1 place and The Great Gatsby dropping a place.

Longest stay in the chart this week is The Croods which is now on an 11 week run and the highest grossing film is Iron Man 3 which has to date grossed £ 36,358,709 A year ago Ridley Scott brought his new Alien film to cinemas in the shape of Prometheus which debut at the top and was hence the highest new film knocking Men in Black 3 from the top.

7th February 2013

With the announcement that Disney would release films within the Star Wars Universe based around specific characters, 25thframe.co.uk has asked which loved characters would make the best films? Here are some ideas, but let me know which characters youd like to see in their own film.

The initial news was that the first film would be based on Yoda. One option for a film would be around his time on Dagoba between Episode III and Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, but he spent many years alone here so not sure how much excitement there is there! More interesting would be a movie based nearly 900 years into the Star Wars past explaining where Yoda came from, and maybe how he became the Jedi Master.

The latest news suggest that the first film will be based on Han Solo, another fan favourite, and one were all keen to see, How did Han meet Chewbacca, we think it was some time after Episode III, but clearly before Star Wars. When did he get the Millennium Falcon, this would have to include Lando Calrissian as the Falcon once belonged to him, and when did Solo do the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs?

Bobba Fett is another character that fans simply want to know more about, we know so little, he has very brief appearances in Empire and Jedi, the film in which he is killed, despite which he became one of the most popular characters, but is a major character in Episode II. We see him as a child and see his dad get killed by the Jedi's, we also know that the Clone Troopers/Storm Troopers are him.

Biggs Darklighter would make an interesting charter to base a film on, he appears on Star Wars and is killed during the batttle, and he appears on one of the more famous cut scenes from that film. There is a whole life on Tattooine to explore, and of course a very close friendship with Luke Sykwalker.

In Star Wars we see Darth Vadar's boss (of sorts) on the Death Star as Grand Moff Tarkin, he must have an interesting back story, what made him so evil, how did he get to commmand the Death Star and the Imperial Outland Regions? We know when he died what what are this vaguely Hitler like characters origins?

The back story of Jabba the Hutt has also been touted as future film, he's a resident of Tatooine and is over 800 years old, he runs a crime organisation that hires bounty hunters and is clearly rich and buys respect. A Godfather type story could be a must for this.

Admiral Ackbar has despite only a brief appearence in Return of the Jedi become a very popular character, he has appeared in The Clone Wars cartoon which has given some insight to his character, but going through his academy days would be an interesting film.

4th February 2013

This weeks UK Box Office has Les Miserables making it four weeks as the most popular film in the country, not since Avatar in 2010 has a film spent more than 3 weeks at the top.

In early figures for last weekend the Tom Hooper musical took £2.8 million taking it's total to around to £30 million mark.

The top new film landed (pun intended) at 3, Denzel Washington stars and is Oscar nominated for his portrayal of an airline pilot with a drinking problem. Flight takes £1.7 million over the weekend.

Flight is having a battle with Lincoln for 3rd place and might end up in fourth by the time final figures are counted.

This time last year Chronicle was the top film of the week and the highest new film debuting at number 1 with £2.2 million, the previous weeks top film, War Horse was knocked to 4th place.

Five years ago it was all change as well as man of the moment, director J.J. Abram's this time on production duties, took Clover field to the top on it's debut with £3.4 million.

Ten years ago Spielberg was a the top with Hanks and DiCaprio and Catch Me If You can with debuted with £3.7 million.

Fifteen years ago Titanic was on the second week of its mammoth run on the chart and took 4.7 million, there was unusually no new films at the box office this week.

21st January 2013

As a cold snap hits Britain and threatens to stop everyone from going to the cinema Les Misérables holds it's place at number one without much threat from the only new release.

Les Misérables dropped almost 50% from it's debut weekend gross but still managed £4.4 million bringing it's total gross after 10 days of release to £17.3 million.

The new film from cult director Quentin Tarantino, starring Jammie Foxx, gives a decent performence on it's debut weekend and grosses £2.8 million, not Tarentino's best, that honor goes to Inglourious Basterds in 2009.

This time last year War Horse was still riding high at the top with a weekend gross of £3,202,493, while Haywire from director Steven Soderbergh was new at 2 with £1,197,866.

Five years ago the Oscar nominated film No Country For Old Men was beaten to the top spot by Aliens Vs Predator Requiem which grossed £1,970,363 on it's debut.

Ten years ago the second Lord of the Rings film ended it's 4 week run at the top, giving way to Eminem in 8 Mile which debuted with £4,440,334.

Fifteen years ago The Devils Advocate starring Keanu Reeves and Al Pacino debuted at the top with £1,300,733.

19th September 2012

Ray Winston takes us on a nostalgia trip (for those who remember) with a reimaging of the mid 70's TV series The Sweeney taking the box office crown.

Director Nick Love is the writer and director or this TV series transition which has clearly hit a note with British audiences as its opening weekend manages a low but impressive £1,545,294. Last weeks top film Dredd has a large fall to 5 this week with a weekend take of £769,381 taking it's 2 week total to £2,725,180.

The Dark Knight Rises continues to make money and is by far the top film of the year now with a UK gross of £55,769,510 having been on the charts for 9 weeks.

A year ago the spy thriller Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy debuted at the top with £2,814,860 knocking The Inbetweeners Movie down to second place.

Five years ago Run Fatboy Run was still at the top while challenger Superbad entered the chart at 2.

Ten years ago M. Night Shyamalan was still in favour at Disney and took Signs to the top of the box office knocking The Bourne Identity off.

4th July 2012

At the UK box office chart this week the fourth Ice Age films takes the number one spot. It was a bad week though as no film in the UK grosses over a million pound in box office takings.

Ice Age: Continental Drift continues the success of the Ice Age series, but with only £853,226 for its opening weekend it's set to be the lowest grossing. Also this week Prometheus continues it's good run and goes back up to number 2 but last weeks top film, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, falls 5 places to number 6.

This weeks top 15 films marks the lowest top 15 since 25th June 2010 when Get Him to the Greek topped the chart and the combined chart took only £ 3,460,985, although the last time no film in the UK took over a million was way back on 28th September 2007 when Run Fatboy Run was in it's 4th week at the top.

This time last year fared much better that last weekend when the 3rd Transformers film, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, took the top spot with an incredible £10,728,503 and also was the top new film of the week.

Five years ago Shrek The Third topped the chart in its opening weekend with and amazing £16,671,727 and it also was the highest new film of the week. And ten year ago Spider-Man was still at the top of the chart having taken it's total gross to £20,953,100 while Murder by Numbers with Sandra Bullock was the highest new film at 2.

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.

Avengers Assemble keeps is chart run in tact and with a 7 week run is not only the longest runner on the chart but the highest grossing film with a total so far of £50,338,151.

This time last year Kung Fu Panda 2 was the highest new film of the week and also the number 1 film, taking £6,188,897 on it's debut.

Similarly five years ago Oceans Thirteen was the highest new film and also the top film with a debut of £3,021,302.

Ten years ago there was no stopping Star Wars Episode II: Attack of The Clones as it spent it's 4th week at the top leaving Unfaithful as the highest new film at 2.

24th May 2012

This week Sacha Baron Cohen tops the UK box office with his latest satirical comedy The Dictator on it's opening weekend, making it the top film and highest new film. With a weekend take of £4,963,745 it was easily the highest grossing film of the weekend.

Falling a single place to 2 the power house movie Avengers Assemble (UK title). A magnificent 4 week run has given the film a total gross of £44,983,702 making it the 27th top grossing film in the UK after last year The Inbetweeners Movie and 2005's The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

And ten year ago Star Wars Episode II: Attack of The Clones was the top film on it's debut weekend with £11,386,209.

31st December 2011

The final instalment of Harry Potter saw the boy wizard go out with a bang, and it became the most successful film of the franchise in the process, and for 2011 it is the highest grossing film at the UK box office.

During its 10 week run it raked up £73,094,187 in UK box office takings, at todays cinema ticket prices that is about 13.5 million tickets making it the 30th top film in the UK by ticker sales. Other film to do well in 2011 were The kings Speech with £45.3 milion, The Inbetweeners with £45 million, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides with £32.9 million and The Hangover Part II with £32.7 million.

In all a good year for British films (is Harry Potter a British film?) with Blockbusters not doing so well, Breaking Dawn and Transformers Dark of the Moon performed well enough but they were big budget blockbusters and had higher expectations.

I think the winner of the year was The Inbetweeners Movie that performed well abouve expectations, made back its budget and secured a sequel in the process, al that for a little Channel 4 show about bad mouthed undersexed teens.

9th September 2011

At the UK box office this week the very British The Inbetweeners movie continues is run at the top of the box office chart making it 3 weeks in a row.

Another good weekend for the boys adding £ 3,679,555 to its total gross, the film has done far better than expected to date and now sits with a UK gross at £34,992,321 making it the 3rd highest grossing film of the year in the UK.

In the rest of the chart, Rise of the Planet of the apes reverses it's decline of the chart and pops back to number 2 with £ 1,083,091.

Last week's highest entry slips just one place this week, One Day falls to 3 with a total weekend take of £ 1,048,343.

The Little blue men of The Smurfs continue their successful run staying at 4 with a take of £ 1,043,353.

Finally in the top five is the highest new film of the week, an Indian action film Bodyguard which takes just under the million mark at £ 839,695.

This week's top 15 is running higher than last year's where The Last Exorcism was a new entry at the top of the tree, and the only film to take over a million, and Avatar was still proving a popular hit 9 months after release.

23rd August 2011

The UK weekend box office had a small surprise this last weekend, a home grown TV phenomenon has tuned into a genuine box office hit. The Inbetweeners Movie, a tale of 4 obnoxious school kids of their first "lads" holiday together has become grabbed the crown as the highest grossing debut comedy, beating this years The Hangover Part 2.

The Inbetweeners Movie took just over £13 million from it's debit weekend (including Wednesday and Thursday previews) beating the likes of Bridget Jones and Wallace and Gromit and American blockbusters like Sex and the City. Very good for a little comedy from Channel 4.

Time will tell if the momentum will continue during its run at the box office and it still needs to go world wide, the US audience may not get the very British humour and crudeness of the central characters.

A great first weekend for the boys and beating James Bond and Indiana Jones in a movie together will be something to tell the grandchildren about.

20th January 2011

Among all the award glory that The Kings Speech is gaining it has also managed to retain it's top on the UK box office this week with a weekend gross of £4,401,926 which is higher than last week but the film was being shown in more theaters.

It's a certainty that the film will continue to gross in large numbers with the seemingly continuous awards being beset upon the film, a Golden Globe is in the bag, a number of BAFTA's are sure to follow and Oscar is definitely knocking on the door.

After 10 days of release the film has taken a total gross of £10,759,019. New this week at 2 is Green Hornet, the latest in a long run and continuing run of high budget super hero movies. Starring Seth Rogen, Jay Chou and Cameron Diaz Green Hornet took £1,878,905 over the weekend.

Falling a single place to three this week is Danny Boyles true life drama 127 Hours which grossed £1,342,432 increasing it's total for 10 days to £4,367,411, a little less than maybe would have been expected but this is no Slumdog!

The last 2 place on the top 5 are taken by Christmas hold over movies Gulliver's Travels and Little Fockers which take £1,252,107 and £1,224,667 respectively over the weekend.

The box office this week is down on this time last year where Avatar and Sherlock Holmes were still taking good money at the box office, although for ticket sales Avatar is in line with The Kings Speech due to the 3D tax for the Cameron extravaganza.

It's the end of the year, and which of the many films released this year was the highest grossing movie for 2010, well it was the return of our favourite toys in Disney/Pixars Toy Story 3.

Woody and friends grossed an incredible £73,405,113 during its 13 week run in the chart from late July until mid-October.

Second this year is a film released late in 2009, Avatar which this year alone £ 60,374,665, but the film also had a good gross last year and is currently the top grossing film ever in the UK.

Third on the list is the latest Harry Potter film, lower than the other films in the series but still grossing £ 44,443,734 so far, this film still has good legs though and we could see an appearance next year as well.

Finally we have Alice in Wonderland with £ 42,169,542 and Inception, which took £ 35,264,403.

Honourable mention must go to Harry Potter and Inception which managed to take decent grosses in the UK with lower ticket prices due to them not being in 3D, it's no surprise that in the top 10 films of 2010 half of them are in 3D and have the surplus on the ticket price.

For many fans The Lord of the Rings is the greatest trilogy of films ever and when Peter Jackson announced that we would not direct the prequel, The Hobbit, the fan based moaned, then he announced that Guillermo del Toro would be directing and the fans cheered, then the series lost del Toro and the fans are sad again.

What's happened? It seems because of the legal problems with the rights to the film with MGM and Warner it's taken so long to get the ball rolling on the film del Toro has simply run out of time and had to leave.

Jackson and his staff are naturally all on board still and fighting to get the film made but the loss of the director is a massive blow, del Toro's films like Hellboy and Pans Labyrinth have proved that the director is more than capable of handling the film and in actual fact would have given the production the perfect style to accompany Jacksons originals.

Where will the films go now? Who knows, Sam Rami has been connected, will be interesting to see where it goes with him, Spidey trilogy shows he can miss on occasions but Evil Dead and Drag Me to Hell can show he has style, but maybe, just maybe Jackson will take the helm himself.

This is a big blow for the production and puts things on rocky ground; del Toro will still help with the script, which is something. Let hope a director can be found who can deliver, Neill Blomkamp anyone?

It's still only January and possible the most hyped device of the year has made it's debut today (Wednesday 27th January) as Apple CEO Steve Jobs announces the release of the iPad, an oversized iPod touch, the device can play HD (720p) video.

The new iPad is running a version of the software that runs the iPhone (which also powers the iPod touch) which means this new device isn't a traditional computer and is unable to do multi-tasking or run OSX applications, but it does have a media player which when coupled with the iTunes store you can buy and rent movies that can be watched anywhere you take it, like on holiday or in the car or on a plane.

The device is very light and thin and has a 9.7 inch screen, so unlike the small 3 inch screen on the iPhone/iPod Touch watching films, or any other task the device is capable of, should be much less strain on your various body parts.

There are two other things which have sold this device for me, one is a fantastic looking case that when the lid is flipped over becomes a stand, so if you are sitting on a chair you can just pop the thing on a table and you have a stand and hey presto comfort (see picture for illustration). Next is the price, although no UK or European price has been announced the US price for the low end model of 16GB is $499, so maybe about £400 - £500 in real money, that's a bargain.

No release date for UK yet but US has 60 - 90 days to wait, so maybe get that pal in America to send one over for you.

CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2010 is kicking off in Las Vegas tomorrow with the Microsoft CEO (Steve Balmer at the moment) being the traditional first Keynote speaker at 6.30pm (PST) on 6th January.

The show always gives a good showcase as what we can expect in the future of technology from the likes of Sony, Samsung, LG, Panasonic and other manufacturers of home entertainment equipment with TV's and film media always having a good showing.

This year Blu-ray and high definition is expected to have a show as the format goes from strength to strength in sales and knocks on the door of DVD in a similar fashion to DBD to VHS 10 years ago.

TV's are on the dawn of a new technology going mainstream, althoug hseen last year OLED is expected to make a bog splash this year. OLED screens are very think and light and give better definition pictures to that of either LCD or plasma, the prices are falling and sizes coming up, expect many TV's PC monitors and other screen devices to be announced.

3D movies made a big impact in cinemas is 2009, and with Avatar doing so well at the box office at the moment studios are keen to push the idea into the home and it's thought that there will be a big display of 3D home movies and TV on display although the technology is new. 3D does have it's doubters who think it's a gimmick and will not catch on.

Also set to make a big impact at CES is tablet PC's, it is widely thought that Apple are on the verge of a big tablet announcement, although we will most likely have to wait until the end of January for that, but there are others who want to enter this market. Tablet PC's could mark a change to the way people view movies on the go, and with Windows 7 touch technology being so good, and probably the excellent iPhone OS being on any Apple device which will allow apps to run on it we could be at the dawn of something big for mobile movies, and in HD of course. Whatever the show has to offer it's always interesting to see what we may have in our homes in the coming years, and what new development in the pipeline, you can follow some of the best coverage, like me, at these site.

8th June 2009

The summers is well and truly over now so let's look back at what were the biggest film of the summer in the UK, and the surprise hit that kept the big budget films at bay.

Before the summer started it was expected in the UK that there would be a title fight for 2008 between The Dark Knight (or the Joker movie depending on your view) and Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull, although these films gave a really good run for their money it was a more gentle film with a fraction of the budget which has drawn the crowds at the box office.

The year has belong to in no small part Mamma Mia!, the film based on the stage play which is basically a platform for all ABBA's hits to be sung during a love story about marriage. There are no guns or big action set pieces in the film, and Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan lend their voices to various ABBA hits during the films running time.

Although it could have been predicted that the film would do well there has simply been no stopping it, 10 weeks after release the film has not been outside the top 3 film in the UK spending most of it's time at number 2, the film has taken at least a £1 million on each of it's first 10 weeks of release.

With Mama Mia! simply clearing up at the box office who has lost out? It was a year of very little blockbuster on the slate, the biggest of which were expecting to be The Dark Knight and the new Indiana Jones movie, these did well but the bigger of these two, The Dark Knight, is going to be well over £10 million behind the ABBA sing-along.

There is every likelihood that Mamma Mia! will end up as the second biggest grossing film in the UK (behind the 10 year old Titanic) but on the world stage its been a good ride for Mia! just not a great one. A competent performer in the US where it made $142 million dollars, which helped boost it's world gross to $498,795,370, it may well get to $500 million before it's end of life.

8th June 2009

When Spiderman 4 was released back in May 2007 I distinctly remember reading and hearing that the cast would not be returning for anymore and this was the end of the story and end of the road for Sam Raimi and his cast. After the amount of money that the franchise has made it seems not that Raimi and Toby Maguire and on board for a fourth instalment.

When I think back at how good and fresh the original was and then how good and action packed its sequel was I sort of forgive the film maker for the under exciting and run of the mill 3rd instalment, lets face it, it wasn't that good, in fact in places it was just terrible, but it was the close of the trilogy.

Lets now leave the franchise alone, maybe let another group revisit it down the line, maybe find a new angle or something, but lets leave it alone. But no, no no no, Sony being in the business for the money, the trilogy has made a ton of that and comic book heroes raking in big bucks at the box office a fourth is going to be with us by about 2010 I'd say.

Lets just hope that a new story is devised and a fresh new group of characters are brought into play and we dont have baddie overkill which ruined the 3rd film. It's in good hands lets just hope its not used just to bring in the bucks for Sony on the back of the good name of Spiderman.

7th June 2009

When it was announced that a 4th Terminator film was being produced I was a little sceptical, after all the 3rd film wasn't all that good and I felt the franchise had run its natural course. Im not a big fan of Christian Bale and McG I can take or leave so the foundation didn't set me alight. Then the teaser trailer whet my appetite and now the latest trailer has got me really excited.

There was one moment at the very end of Terminator 3 that for me made the who film worthwhile and really made it slot into the whole terminator mythology, now with 4 it looks like the makers have taken the essence of the franchise, turned it on its head and produced something I hope will do the rest of the series justice and set the scene for the following 2 movies.

No sign from the trailer if Arnie is involved, although there are loads of robots and the T800 is to make an appearance, Will Arnies face be attached, time will tell. Christian bale looks set to be a good John Connor and thoes niggling gaps that have been in your head since you saw the first Terminator film may start to get answered.

Until then sit back enjoy this trailer
