10th July 2017

Across the globe this week Spider-Man Homecoming makes its debut at the top with a global gross of $257 million from 57 countries.

The first Spider-Man film to be released into the MCU the film also stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man which seems to have broadened the appeal of the film.

The film did well in the US taking $117 million but took $140 million on the international markets with South Korea leading the way.

Despicable Me 3 fell from the top to number 2 this week with $172.9 million from 61 countries, this brings the film total global gross to $447.5 million.

Wonder Woman is at number 4 this week and is the highest total grossing film globally, it has now grossed $745 million and is still showing in 65 countries.

Worth a mention if The House That Never Dies II, only released in 1 country it sits at number 6 this week with $14 million.

Cars 3 this week falls to number 8, with a total gross of $193 million globally it could well end up as the lowest grossing Pixar movie to date.

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.

3rd July 2017

After a release last week in some smaller location Despicable Me 3 gets its wider global release and tops the chart in the process.

Diminishing returns for the series means the third film gets the lowest wide release of the series but it still manages a $171 million for the week from 53 countries.

This brings the films total global gross to $192.3 million, well below the other films in the series and with Despicable Me 2 grossing just under a billion dollars and Minions taking $1.1 billion this one could fall way short.

Transformers: The Last Knight made its debut at the top last week but this week falls to number 2, small $85 million week gross from 45 countries takes the films total to $429.9 million.

Baby Driver this week goes to 17 countries sits at number 4 with $27.8 million which brings the films total gross to $36.8 million.

Highest new film of the week is The House starring Will Farrell and Amy Poehler which debuts at 9 with $11.7 million from 21 countries.

Wonder Woman is the top total grossing film of the week, currently at number 3 its taken $707.9 million in world grosses.

24th April 2017

With a massive opening last weekend no studio was going to try and compete with The Fate of the Furious for a couple of week and hence the film stays at the top for a second weekend.

Dropping a considerable 60% from last week the Fast and Furious 8 (to give it the UK name) takes $38 million on its second weekend of release.

This brings the films total to a fantastic $163.6 million in the US and it keeps it on tract to s very similar gross to the previous films.

Highest new film of the week is Disney’s wild life documentary Born in Chine, about pandas, which is released to coincide with the global Earth Day celebration.

The House of Mouse has released similar wildlife documentaries each year around this time for the last few years and this years entry takes just over $5 million on its opening.

Also new this week is Unforgettable at number 7 with $4.8 million and The promise which debuts at number 9 with $4 million.

Beauty and the Beast is once again the top total grossing movie this week with $472 million and with 6 weeks on the chart is also the longest running film.

24th November 2014

Transformers: Age of Extinction tops the UK video chart on it's first week of release on Blu-ray and DVD.

The fourth in the Transformers films was released at the UK box office on 11th June of this year taking £11.7 million on it's debut week of release.

The film was on the box office chart for only 5 weeks taking £19 million in the process, and is only the 187th highest grossing film of all time in the UK, it is the lowest of the series.

World wide the film fared slightly better, it grossed $1.07 billion and is the 11th highest grossing film of all time, much of that was from Japan where it is the highest grossing film in that territory.

Falling from the top to fifth is X-Men: Days of Future Past after it debuted at the top last week.

Other new film this week are
How to Train Your Dragon 2 at 2
22 Jump Street at 4
Earth to Echo at 9
The Purge Anarchy at 10
The House of Magic at 18
Pudsey The Dog The Movie at 19

29th July 2014

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes holds off the challenge of Hercules, The Purge Anarchy and Earth to Echo to keep the top spot at the UK box office for another week.

Now in it's second weekend of release Dawn of the Apes easily hangs on to the top spot with a weekend take of £3.7 million, this brings it's total gross to £17 million after 10 days of release.

Highest new film of the week is Dwayne Johnson in a retelling of Hercules, an all out action film rather than historical retelling of the Greek myth it's directed by Brett Ratner.

Hercules took a gross of £1.5 million on it's opening weekend, it has a long was to go to even be one of Johnson's best films as he's been part of the Fast and Furious series and The Mummy series.

Likewise Brett Ratner has been part of the X-Men series and directed the 2 Rush Hour movies, and also directed a Hannibal Lector film, all high grossing franchises.

Hercules could sink quite fast especially with some of the new releases coming in the next few weeks which will be ultimately bigger box office hits.

There are plenty of other new releases this week in the form of
The Purge Anarchy at 3
Earth to Echo at 6
Kickat 8
The House of Magic at 10

This time last year new at the top was The Wolverine based on the X-Men universe which topped on it's debut knocking Monsters University into 2nd.

Five years ago Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince was still at the top in it's second week and The Proposal with Sandra Bullock was new at 2.

Ten years ago Spider-Man 2 held onto the top spot for a second week with the highest new film being Thunderbirds at 3.

Fifteen years ago it was Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace holding onto the top spot for a second week, and with nothing daring to open up in the wake of such a big film the highest new film was Hindustan Ki Kasam at 10.

25th July 2014

The ever busy Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) is back on the big screen this weekend with the action film Hercules, based on the story of the Greek God and son of Zeus.

Probably not sticking to the legend too closely this is an all out action film that should do well at the UK box office, probably wont have the power to interrupt Apes or Transformers but a healthy top 3 might be in order.

Earth to Echo is the story of a small alien robot that comes to earth and is found by a trio of boys, the rest is predicable and their lives will change forever.

This is aimed squarely at the kids, but with the fantastic weather currently being experienced in the UK this could just get a top 5 entry.

6th June 2013

The top 5 on the UK box office this week was almost static with The Wolf Pack leading the way in their 3rd Hangover outing.

The Hangover Part III stayed at the top for a second weekend in a row this week with no competition from any new releases meaning the only movement in the top 5 was Star Trek into Darkness climbing 1 place and The Great Gatsby dropping a place.

Longest stay in the chart this week is The Croods which is now on an 11 week run and the highest grossing film is Iron Man 3 which has to date grossed £ 36,358,709 A year ago Ridley Scott brought his new Alien film to cinemas in the shape of Prometheus which debut at the top and was hence the highest new film knocking Men in Black 3 from the top.

Five years ago the first Sex and the City movie made it's debut at the top of the UK box office knocking the fourth instalment of the Indiana Jones franchise, The Kingdom of the Chrystal Skull from the top.

Ten years ago The Matrix Reloaded was still riding the wave of expectation at the top keeping Steve Martin at bay in the runner up spot in Bringing Down the House which debuted at 2.

Fifteen year ago meteor disaster movies were all the rage and Deep Impact was still at the top while horror film Wishmaster was the highest new film at 3.

Twenty years ago Indecent Proposal was proving to be the top grossing film of May.

Check out this weeks UK box office.

26th February 2013

A single week at the top was all Bruce Willis could manage as Wreck-It Ralph jumps back to the top with a strong weekend after the school half term.

3 weeks of release and Disney recapture the top spot with their video game inspired film. A weekend gross of £3,420,196 takes it's total to £18,624,692 making another big hit for the House of Mouse.

A Good Day to Die Hard only slipped to second place which made the highest new film of the week land at 3, horror spookfest Mama took £1.5 million for the weekend.

This time last year another spooky horror film was still at number 1, The Woman in Black was spending it's 3rd week at the top with £2.4 million. Highest new films was Denzel Washington in Safe House with £2.1 million.

Five years ago Jumper was holding the top spot while whacky comedy starring Jack Black and Mos Def Be Kind Rewind was the highest new film at 2.

Ten years ago it was yet another scary horror film, the US remake of The Ring, which debuted in the top spot with £2.2 million.

And fifteen years ago Titanic was continuing it's record breaking surge at the top of the box office, 5 weeks in, still the top film and £34.1 million in the bank.

15th February 2012

Daniel Radcliffe, for the immediate future anyway, is always going to be Harry Potter, for 10 years he lived and breathed the character and to millions of adoring fans he is the image of the boy wizard, which is why it is an achievement that while watching The Woman in Black Harry Potter hardly crossed my mind.

The story, set in an Edwardian era, centers around Arthur Kipps (Radcliffe) who is a solicitor sent to clear up the paperwork of a recently deceased woman. Kipps himself has a 4 year old child and is a widow, his wife having died during child birth.

Kipps arrives in the village of Crythin Gifford where he is to spend the next couple of days working before his son arrives to join him for a holiday. During his train journey Kipps meets the local wealthy man who he befriends and then is given a lift in his car (noted as being the first car in the village) to the inn where he is booked in to stay.

The welcome Kipps gets from everyone else is far from friendly, and as he goes about his business the next day he is more or less told to leave town. What ensues from there is a traditional ghost story with scares and jumps at every opportunity.

As I first mentioned Radcliffe, fresh from the Potter franchise where he IS the boy wizard, manages to detach himself from that completely, not sure if it's the side burns or the fact that his character spends a lot of time alone and doesn't say a lot, or maybe it's the low budget film not being laden with special effect but it's a good move.

I'm showing my age now but I remember the Hammer Horror films of the 70's and 80's which at the time were scary as hell, and the TV show had me hiding behind the sofa more than Doctor Who did, and this film, which is produced by Hammer and filmed in the UK captures the spirit of the old Hammer perfectly.

The film is jumpy if a little corny in places, not too long and has a story which is acceptable for a horror film of this type. I started the question things when a seemingly normal guy decides to spend the night in the creepiest looking house in England that is cut from mainland during for large part of the day and he'd already experienced minor paranormal activity (I'd never have gone anywhere near the house in the first place) and some of the jumpy scenes were far too predictable and came off as amusing but on the whole it's an enjoyable scary horror harking back to the glory days of Hammer.

Good: Decent screenplay from Jane Goldman and some genuinely scary moments. Well directed by James Watkins and a good supporting cast.

Bad: Does get predictable and some of the scares are funny. Too many unanswered things happen and the ending although good could have been better.
