28th June 2016

The UK box office this weeks has a new number one film in the shape of The Secret Life of Pets. the latests film from the makers of Despicable Me and Minions.

An excellent weekend gross of £9.5 million sees the film enter ahead of the weeks other big film Independence Day Resurgence.

Despite having the connection to the Despicable Me franchise The Secret Life of Pets for a new franchise makes an very good debut, in comparison it is far higher that the first Despicable Me but lower than the franchises other films.

With the summer holidays in the coming weeks this could have staying power, and there is little competition until mid July.

Also new this week is Independence Day Resurgence which makes its debut at number 2 with just over £5 million, its been 20 years but the original debuted to £16 million.

Last weeks top film, The Conjuring 2 The Enfield Case, falls to number 3 with a total gross of £7.7 million after a £1.5 million second weekend.

The Jungle Book is once again the top total grossing film on the box office with £45.6 million and the longest run on the box office with 11 weeks.

14th June 2016

Its still unusual that a film will climb to the top of the box office, but this week with many people otherwise occupied with the start of the Euro 2016 championships Me Before You climbs to the top.

Last week the film entered at number 3 but this week manages to top the chart, and is the only film this week to take over £1 million in weekend grosses.

The film not has a total UK gross of £4.4 million and with the Euro's with us for the next 3 weeks who knows what could happen?

With a lot of studio's not willing to release new film at the moment the rest of the chart reads very similar to last week, the highest new film is the Melissa McCarthy vehicle at number 7 which manages just below £600,000 for the weekend.

Highest total grossing movie is The Jungle book which has taken £45.1 million after 10 weeks and longest run on the chart is 11 weeks for Zootopia.

Worthy or not this week is that this week's cinema had the lowest total take of 2016 and the lowest since September last year.
