19th September 2016

Tom Hanks and Clint Eastwood kept pleasing audiences this weekend as sully proved to popular for all the new films and stayed at the top.

A second weekend gross of $22 million easily outstrips all the new film and allows the films total gross to reach $70 million after 10 days of play.

There was going to be a fight for the highest new film of the week, 2 old franchises against a true life docudrama, in the end it wasn't that close and a new film in the Blair Witch series is the top new film.

Billed as a true sequel to 1999's original The Blair Witch Project the film called simply Blair Witch lands at number 2 with $9.6 million, far lower than the origin which was a true sleeper hit.

Highest total grossing and longest run on the box offie this week is Suicide Squad which has grossed in the US $313 million over 7 weeks.

6th November 2014

Despite it being Halloween new horror film Ouija could not make it's way to the top of the UK box office and instead the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles went back to the top in their third week of release.

Taking nearly £1.5 million for the weekend the Turtles have now spent 3 weeks on release and have taken a total of £11.7 million. The return of the Turtles for a new generation has been a massive success and has so far taken $434.5 million across the world.

Highest new film this week is Ouija which has taken £1.4 million, arguably because of the Halloween weekend and people looking for a fright, the film could disappear quite quickly.

Last weeks top film, Fury, falls to number 3 this week with £1.2 million. It was in reality a very tight top 3 this week with only about £200,000 separating the top films.
