Shrek A U film should be suitable for audiences aged four years and over, although it is impossible to predict what might upset any particular child.

U films should be set within a positive framework and should offer reassuring counterbalances to any violence, threat or horror. If a work is particularly suitable for pre-school children, this will be indicated in the ratings info.

DreamWorks new animated tale Abominable makes its debut at the top of the US box office on its debut weekend, knocking Downton Abbey down to number 2 after just a week at the top.

Abominable

The new animated tale from the makers of Shrek hits the top of the US box office on its debut weekend with a gross of $20.6 Million.

This is the lowest debut weekend for the studio and in comparison last years Smallfoot which has a similar subject matter opened to $23 Million.

Downton Abbey

The high class of pomp and ceremony within the famous Abbey fell into second place after just a weekend at the top with a gross of $14.3 Million.

This takes the total films gross to $58.3 Million after 2 weeks of release.

Hustlers

The Jennifer Lopes movie has been getting a lot of attention over the last couple of weeks, and all good, the film is at 3 this week with a take of $11.3 Million.

The films total US gross is now at $80.5 Million after 3 weeks with the $100 Million milestone well and truly in its sights.

IT Chapter Two

Warner Bros. must be feeling a little disappointed with the performance of the horror follow up as the film falls to 4 this week with $10.2 Million.

The film has not performed any where near as well as the original IT movie and the film has made $193.7 Million after 4 weeks of release.

The movie could it the $250 Million mark but it wont get much higher as it will now descend down the chart with perhaps a little boost over the Halloween weekend.

The Lion King

Ad Astra

The Brad Pitt starring space film falls to 5 this weekend with a $10.01 Million weeeknd pushing the film to $35.3 Million after 2 weeks of release.

The Lion King

Disneys animated remake continues to do very well on the box office and this week it falls only to 9 after 11 weeks on the chart and the film has taken a total of $540 Million in total in the US.

19th 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.

11th July 2017

Spider-Man joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the first time in Spider-Man Homecoming and with the help of Iron Man tops the Uk box office.

The new re-boot (the third for the franchise) stars Tom Holland and reaches the top with a £9.3 million opening weekend.

In terms of previous Spider-Man films this is fairly standard with only Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man doing far better.

Despicable Me 3 falls to second place but still manages a £5 million weekend which brings the films total gross to nearly £20 million.

With the school summer holidays fast approaching expect this film to hang around for a while.

Yet gain The Boss Baby is the longest running film of the week with 14 weeks on total on the chart and it is also the highest total grossing film with £28 million.

5th July 2017

This week the animated series of Despicable Me in its third incarnation, imaginatively titled Despicable me 3, removed Transformers from the top after just a week.

Taking a decent £11 million from the weekend the third film, or fourth if you count Minions, in the series comes in under the second film but way above the first.

Worth a note last years Minions debuted with almost the exact same gross as this so the series is on a stable keel at the moment.

Transformers: The Last Knight falls down to number 3 this week with a weekend gross of £1.06 million bringing the films total gross to £8 million.

Transformers leap frogs over Baby Driver which makes its debut at number 2 this week, the much hyped film makes £3.6 million on its debut.

Directed by Edgar Write Baby Driver does better than nearly all other Write directed movies other than Hot Fuzz which was his follow up movie to the excellent Shaun of The Dead and was much hyped as well.

Also new this week is All Eyez On Me which us new at 4 with just under a million pound and quite disappointingly so The House which is new at 6 with Half a million pound.

The Boss Baby is this week the longest running film on the box office with 13 weeks and the highest total grossing with £28.5 million.

27th July 2016

There became a bit of a battle for the top of the box office this week as the much loved children's classic The BFG went up agains the much loved Star Trek franchise.

In the end Roald Dahl and Steven Spielberg won with The BFG as it takes the number 1 spot on its debut weekend of release with a very respectable £5.3 million

The film was considered a flop in the US but the stories are considered classics in the UK and parents have passed down books from generation to generation and this is reflected in the box office.

Almost as much loved, and celebrating 50 years this year is Star Trek, and to celebrate we have Star Trek Beyond which this week makes its debut at 2.

A weekend take of £4.7 million wasn't enough to see it debut at the top, and even more worrying is this is half as much as Star Trek Into Darkness, and lower than the original reboot.

The positive reviews may help the path ahead but this is definitely a diminishing series and with a fourth film already planned who knows what the future holds.

Also new this week are Andr Rieu's 2016 Maastricht Concert which had a couple of shows this last weekend is new at 3.
