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.

Historical charts

A year ago
The Secret Life of Pets held on to the top of the chart with The Legend of Tarzan coming in as the highest new film at number 2.

Five years ago
The Amazing Spider-Man starring Andrew Garfield made its debut at the top of the box office on its debit weekend knocking Ice Age: Continental Drift down to number 2.

Ten years ago
Shrek The Third remained at the top for a second weekend while the top new film was Die Hard 4.0 starring Bruce Willis at number 2.

Fifteen years ago
Tom Cruise starred in Minority Reports which too over at the top on its debut while Spider-Man fell to number 2 after 3 weeks on top.

3rd March 2015

This week sequel movie The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel makes its debut at the top of the UK box office chart.

The original cast returns for the sequel to the 2012 movie with the help of American star Richard Gere who is added to the cast to give it an American' appeal.

The film takes £3.7 million on it's debut weekend which is far better than the £2.2 million of the original, that film had long lasting appeal, time will tell if this follows.

Falling into the runner up spot after 2 weeks at the top is Fifty Shades Of Grey, a third weekend gross of £2.5 million brings the total to £30.4 million making it by far not the best grossing film of 2015 to date.

Worth mentioning, if the chart were based on the full week ticket sales and not just the weekend, Fifty Shades of Grey would have retained it's position at the top with £5 million.

Other new films to enter the box office this week are: Focus at 3, The Boy Next Door at 7 and It Follows at 8.

Historical charts

26th February 2014

With the school half term being a wet and miserable time in most parts of the UK the cinema was clearly a good option for parents as 3 animated features dominate the charts.

At the top there is no change as The Lego Movie stays for a second week taking £6 million, climbing back up a place is Mr Peabody and Sherman, while climbing to third is Disney's Tinkerbelle and the Pirate Fairy.

You have to look outside the top ten to find the highest new film, Winter's Tale enters at thirteen this week, taking £258 thousand for the weekend.

A year ago Disney was at the top with Wreck-It Ralph was still at the top of the box office while horror film Mama took the highest new position at three.

Five years ago Disney was at the top with Bolt retaining the position while new film Shopaholic entered at two. Ten years ago The Haunted Mansion stayed at the top, from, you guessed it, Disney. Entering the highest right down at nine was Sex Lives of the Potato Man.

Fifteen years ago Disney were at the top (again) this time with the help of Pixar with A Bugs Life, while highest new film was at three, This Years Love.

In conclusion, Disney does well this time of year!
