19th October 2016

With a new Tom Hanks film in cinemas and a Dan Brown adaptation at that it was assumed that The Girl on The Train would be a one week wonder, but Inferno was not strong enough.

Emily Blunt thus makes it 2 weeks at the top with The Girl on The Train with a second weekend gross of £3.4 million.

This brings the total gross of the film in the UK to £13.6 million, if you compare this to last years Gone Girl it is actually head of that films £9 million after 2 weeks.

Highest new entry of the week comes in at number 2 in the shape of Inferno from the book by Dan Brown and a sequel to The De Vinci Code and Angela and Demons.

Inferno makes in debut with £2.9 million which is the lowest of the series so far, The De Vinci Code and Angela and Demons made £9 million and £6 million respectively on their debuts.

On the UK box office this week Emily Blunt knocks off Renee Rene Zellweger as Bridget Jones is no match for The Girl on The Train.

Making its debut with just under £7 million The Girl on The Train is aiming for a similar target audience as Gone Girl which was released early October of 2014 and did very well.

This film which is also based on a bestselling novel has managed to come in £2 million higher despite reviews not being as favourable.

After 3 weeks at the top is it time for Bridget Jones's Baby to surrender the top spot and with a £2.9 million weekend falls to number 2.

The film cant be too sorry for itself as it has grossed £37.8 million so far and at the current pace will most likely become the most successful of the series.

1st January 2016

2015 is over and while Star Wars will try its hardest to dominate 2016, the film that grossed more than any other in 2015 was Jurassic World.

A total gross of $1.6 billion across the globe ensured that the continuation of the Jurassic Park series was as big a hit as the original was back in the 90s.

Second on the list is Fast and Furious 7, as well as fans of the series it seems everyone else also wanted to give Paul Walker a big $1.5 billion send off, RIP.

Avengers Age of Ultron was the 3rd top film of the year and late release The Force Awakens was 4th with the Minions finishing off the top 5.

For the first time in chart history the full top 5 made over a billion dollars each, still no film has made over $2 billion like 2009 when Avatar did this, although I wouldn't bet on The Force Awakens making over that in time.

Here is 2015's world top 10 grossing films

  1. Jurassic World = $1,668,912,312
  2. Fast and Furious 7 = $1,520,032,910
  3. Avengers Age of Ultron = $1,402,750,552
  4. Star Wars: The Force Awakens = $1,228,349,526
  5. Minions = $1,157,275,017
  6. Inside Out = $851,602,426
  7. Spectre = $850,604,955
  8. Mission:Impossible Rogue Nation = $682,142,377
  9. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 = $619,444,461
  10. The Martian = $594,161,725
