The week director Steven Spielberg is at the top with him adaptation of the much loved Roald Dahl book The BFG.
Hitting the heights of number one on its debut week of release the film was a big hit in UK cinemas when it was released on 22nd July 2016 where it hit number 1.
The film didn't last more than a week at the top, but it turned into a massive hit and had a slow fall down the box office.
In total the film spent 14 weeks on the official top 15 and then spent 4 weeks still pulling in audiences at cinemas, it was still in some cinemas on its week of release on home video.
The film made £30.5 million at the UK box office and it is currently number 99 on the list of all time UK box office hits.
It didn't do that well across the globe, its clearly a very British story, it only made $178 million which is very low for a Spielberg film.
Last weeks top film, The Secret Life of Pets, falls from the top to number 3 this weeks after only a single week at number 1.
Other new film this week are Star Trek Beyond at number 2, a number 2 hit released on 22nd July 2016 and Ghostbuster (the remake) a number 1 film from 15th July 2016.
13th September 2016
Clint Eastwood and Tom Hanks dominate the world box office this week as their true life drama Scully easily dominates.
A very quiet week at the global box office as Scully manages to top with just $45 million from 40 counties, $35 of that from America.
For such an American centric film thats not a surprise and it is still to be released in many countries, Europe is a big Hanks fan to expect a big boost when released there.
Last weeks top film Star Trek Beyond falls to number 2 with only $17 million from 41 countries with China is still doing well on its second week of release.
At number 5 Chinese film The Age Of Shadows makes its debut with $16 million, very good consider the single territory it is released in. Also new at number 7 this week is When The Bow Breaks which grosses $15 million from its US release.
Still the top grossing film on the global top 10 is The Secret Life of Pets which has now taken $789 million during its box office run.
It may have had its run in much of the world but the late summer release of Star Trek Beyond in China catapults the film back to the top.
As with last week last weeks chart a Chinese opening if a film does wonders and a $31 million opening has the film take $39 million from 40 countries for the weekend and a quiet market takes it back to the top.
The late summer has proved to be a difficult time for the box office and with little other movement the whole top 10 this week across the globe is the same as last week.
You actually have to go down to the 17th film on this weeks global box office to find a new film, The Light Between Oceans takes $5 million from 1 country.
Tp total grossing movie on the chart this week is The Secret Life of Pets, and incredible run sees it still at 4 and its total world gross is now $761.5 million.
31st August 2016
For the second weekend Disney and Pixar hold on to the top with Finding Dory which returned to number 1 last week after a 2 week drop to number 2.
The fishy tale of the forgetful fish is having a fantastic UK box office run with a £1.5 million 5th weekend bringing its total gross to £35.8 million.
With another week to go of the School summer holidays Dory could well make another weekend at the top of the box office.
Not far behind if the highest new entry of the week, comedy Bad Moms, starring Mila Kunis of Family Guy fame.
The film takes £1.4 million from the weekend, only £400,000 behind the top film.
Also new this week is War Dogs at number 4, The Purge Election Year at number 5 and Lights Out at number 8.

1st August 2016
This week was the global release of the latest Bourne movie which saw it dominate the box office with its wide release in 47 counties.
America led the way and create just over half of the global box box office gross for the movie, the total was 110 million, far greater the last film in the series The Bourne Legacy.
This is a good start for the fifth film in the series and fourth starring Matt Damon and with positive reviews it should see the film gross some impressive numbers.
Falling from the top is Star Trek Beyond, which like its predecessor had a strong opening weekend but a heavy second frame.
The film took $37 million this week from 41 countries to bring its total gross to $160.5 million, and with much of the films gross bound to be front loaded this could mean trouble for the franchise.
Also new this week is League Of Gods at number 5 which has an impressive launch from 7 countries for a $30 million opening week.
Highest total grossing movie on the top 10 global box office this week is Finding Dory which has now taken $469 million.
The global top five looks like this.
