11th March 2019

The hype around Captain Marvel has been intense and there was little doubt this weekend that the first female led Marvel stand alone movie would do massive business at the US box office.

How To Train Your Dragon: THe Hidden World

Captain Marvel

The new marvel movie starring Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson trampled all in its path on the US box office with a magnificent $153 million opening from a record breaking 4,310 screens.

In America this is the third biggest March opening with only the live action Beauty and the Beast and Batman V Superman Dawn Of Justice doing better.

The road ahead looks good for the Marvel superhero and the $1 billion mark looks a sure thing.

How To Train Your Dragon: THe Hidden World

Understandably falling from the top spot in the light of major competition the threequel dragon movie took $14.6 million over the weekend.

This brings the films total US gross to a very good $119.6 million.

A Madea Family Funeral

Tyler Perry's Madea movie falls to 3 this week with $12.05 million which pushes the films total gross after 2 weeks of release to $45.8 million.

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

The sequel brick movie falls to 4 this week with $3.8 million to bring its total to $97.1 million.

The animation should pass the $100 million mark but it is well below the originals $257 million US gross.

Alita: Battle Angel

Still in the top 5 is the Battle Manga movie which this week pulls in $3.2 million for a $78.3 million total gross.

22nd 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 doesn’t 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.

7th 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.

5th June 2017

As Warner Bros. unleash the next film in its expanding DC Universe hopes are high that Wonder Woman will kick it into high gear, and with a $223 million opening from 56 countries it can be considered a success.

With man of Steel and Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice not really setting the box office alight the way many had hoped we now have the DC movie the fans have been longing for as Wonder Woman pleases critics and fans alike.

After a week atop the global box office last week Pirates of The Caribbean: Salazars Revenge falls to number 2 with $95.4 million from 55 countries, the films tepid reception with critics and fans has done the film no favours and it cant compete with a superhero juggernaut.

We will have to see if this means a slow down or end to the series, Disney has got used to $1 billion plus grosses for the series and this will most likely come no-where near that figure at the film reaches the half billion mark globally.

Making a decent debut at number 4 is Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, $24.2 million from 9 countries isn't bad for a film with little hype.

5th June 2017

The time of Pirates of The Caribbean is over and the dawn of the DC universe is upon us as Wonder Woman, the first female led super hero movie, blasts onto the US box office.

A massive $100 million opening ensured that the film hit the top spot on its debut, and of course it grossed more than the rest of the US box office combined.

Unlike its spiritual predecessor, Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice, this movie was met with mostly favourable reviews by critics and audiences alike.

The $100 million plus opening gives Wonder Woman the third biggest of 2017 in America following Beauty and The Beast and Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2.

Falling hard from the top spot this week is Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men tell No Tales (as its called in America) and the film fell nearly 70% from last week to end up at number 3.

With a weekend gross of only $21.6 million on its second weekend could this mean an end to the pirate saga? The film has taken $114.6 million in total.

Also new this week is Captain Underpants from Dreamworks, based on the kids books the film lands at number 2 with $23.5 million.

On probably its last weekend on the US box office Beauty and The Beast is the longest running film with 12 weeks and the highest total grossing with just over $500 million.
