Highest chart position: 1
Weeks on box office: 7
25th August 2016
In an unusual event for the box office charts and old favourite returns to the top of the box office, Disney/Pixars Finding Dory replaces Suicide Squad after 4 weeks of release.
We are coming to the end of the School holidays in the UK and its a time when a lot of families are back from their time away so its perhaps no suprise that the box kids film of the moment returns to the top.
A fantastic 4th weekend gross of £2.8 million takes the total gross to £32.3 million, this puts the film on a level with the original Finding Nemo.
Falling into second place is 2 week champion Suicide Squad, a £2.5 million weekend brings the total gross to an fantastic £27.6 million.
This puts the DC anti-hero film ahead of the DC superhero film Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice from earlier in the year.
Highest new film of the week is a British institution making its debut, David Brent Life On The Road, and although it hasn't done nearly as well as Absolutely Fabulous The Movie from this year is debuts at 3 with £1.4 million.
The Office was such a big hit from over10 years ago, was of its time, and is still loved its a challenge to get that feeling back, and this only looks at one of the characters so it could sink fast.
The Secret Life of Pets is still the top total grossing movie of the week with £33.7 million and the longest running film with 9 weeks.
Interesting note this week, if the chart were calculated from the full weeks taking it would have been a very different picture, Suicide Squad would have retained the top, The BFG would have been 3rd and David Brent Life on the Road would have been 6th

19th August 2016
Despite there being 7 new releases hitting the top 15 films this week the top five films in the UK remain unchanged from last week with Suicide Squad remaining at the top.
On its second weekend of release the DC comics anti-hero picture took £4.2 million, down just over 66% from the previous weekend.
The film has now taken £22 million during its 10 days of release and is not that far behind stable mate Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice.
With the rest of the top 4 remaining fairly static the highest new film of the week is Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates starring Zak Efron and Anna Kendrick.
The comedy film took just over a million pound on its debut weekend in the UK, but the suspicion is it will fall fast in the coming weeks ready for a home video release.
Big suprise of the week is the Disney remake of Petes Dragon landing at number 6 with £844,090, one of the Mouse Houses smallest hits in a while.
Other new films this week are Newrve at number 7, The Shallows at number 8, Mohenjo Daro at number 11, Rustom at number 12 and finally Wiener Dog at number 14.
Longest running film this week and highest total gross is The Secret Life of Pets, 8 weeks on the chart and £33 million.

Twenty years ago
Independence Day was the top new film of the week making its debut at the top with Twister falling to number 2 on its third week of release.
As expected this week there was no stopping Dawn of the Planet of the Apes as it very easily and without competition took to the top of the charts on it;s debut weekend.
Grossing £8.7 million from Thursday to Sunday it took more than the rest of the box office combined.
Dawn well and truly out preformed it predecessor Rise of the planet of the Apes which took £5.8 million on it's debut weekend in August 2011, it went on to gross £20.5 in total.
Dawn should go on to out-gross that film and could come close to £25 - 30 million in the UK.
Also worth a mention this weekend is two even movies that got themselves inside the top 5 on the box office chart, Monty Python Live (Mostly) made number 4 with £1.8 million which Andre Rieu took him Maastricht concert to number 5 with £830,000.
Other new film to debut this week are:
Pudsey The Dog The Movie at 7
This time last year Monsters University held on to the top spot which mean The Worlds End debuted at 2.
Five years ago Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince made it's debut at the top of the box office knocking the previous number 1, Ice Age: Dawn of The Dinosaurs, to number 2.
Ten years ago say Spider-Man 2 make it's cinematic debut at the top of the box office knocking Shrek 2 into the number 2 spot.
Fifteen years ago was an historical time in cinema as the much anticipated, and to an extent much hated, Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace made it's UK debut at the top, 2 months after it's US debut. The Mummy fell to number 2.
There was do doubt this week that Dawn of the Planet of the Apes would be the top film in America, and it does so with ease over the rest of the box office.
A very good $73 million dollars assured that the new apes film would be big and it not only far out grossed the rest of the box office but out grossed it predecessor.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes $55 million on it's American opening, it was a (nearly) new franchise so that may have effected it, Dawn has had very positive reviews and Rise was considered a big hit in the end.
Falling into the runner up spot this week is Transformers: Age of Extinction, two weeks at the top has earned it over $200 million in the US.
