After last weeks almost static home video chart this week we have 5 in the top 10 alone with Sausage Party leading the way by landing at number 1 with £2.7 million on its debut.

Sausage Party was released in the UK on 2nd September 2015 where it landed at number 1, a good debut for an 18 rated animated movie.

After a couple of weeks at he top it then took a sharp decline down the box office spending just 5 weeks in cinemas in total.

Despite this relatively short box office run it actually did really well and ended up with a total gross of £7.5 million.

Also new this week, at number 2 is Mechanic Resurrection a number 10 film from August, Bad Moms at number 3 a number 2 film from August and finishing off the top 5 is Brotherhood a number 2 films from early September.

Also making their debut this week are The Purge Election Year at number 8 a number 5 film from August and finally War Dogs at 13 a number 4 film from August.

31st August 2016

For the second weekend Disney and Pixar hold on to the top with Finding Dory which returned to number 1 last week after a 2 week drop to number 2.

The fishy tale of the forgetful fish is having a fantastic UK box office run with a £1.5 million 5th weekend bringing its total gross to £35.8 million.

With another week to go of the School summer holidays Dory could well make another weekend at the top of the box office.

Not far behind if the highest new entry of the week, comedy Bad Moms, starring Mila Kunis of Family Guy fame.

The film takes £1.4 million from the weekend, only £400,000 behind the top film.

Also new this week is War Dogs at number 4, The Purge Election Year at number 5 and Lights Out at number 8.

Highest total grossing movie this week is Finding Dory while the longest running movie on the box office is Star Trek Beyond and The BFG with 6 weeks each.

4th July 2016

Despite a number of new releases this week Finding Dory still manages to dominate the global box office now after 3 weeks of release.

Dory this week grossed $76.3 million globally, now released in 41 countries, this brings its total gross now over the half billion mark to $538.2 million.

There are still many countries where the film has not had a release so the film making it to billion mark is probably at this stage a certainty.

Highest new film of the week is The Legend of Tarzan which shows up in 20 countries and has a debut gross of $56.9 million.

The week had a number of new releases but with the good weather and holidays throughout the world nothing managed to capture the market, or maybe it was the lack of summer blockbuster? The rest of the new releases are as follows: The Purge Election Years at 5, The BFG at 8, Ice Age Collision Course at 9, although it must be said that these film all had single digit country release and are no where near saturation yet.

Here is the top 5 global box office for this week.

  1. Finding Dory - $76,300,542
  2. The Legend Of Tarzan - $56,935,000
  3. Independence Day Resurgence - $56,700,000
  4. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Out Of The Shadows - $31,265,000
  5. The Purge Election Year - $30,997,840

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

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.
