News from around the web

Glass remained at the top of the global box office this weekend although the big story is that the "family friendly" version of Deadpool 2, Once Upon A Deadpool 2 opened big in China to push it back to number 2.

Glass

Remaining at the top for a second week the M. Night Shyamalan hit film took $42.6 million from 56 countries, this boosts its total global gross to $162.6 million meaning it will soon to the directors biggest film.

Deadpool 2

Released in much of the world over Christmas of 2018, hence the retitle to Once Upon A Deadpool 2, the re-cut version of the film hit China this week and $21.4 million opening, this takes the films total global gross to $767.6 million.

Extreme Job

The Chinese film was only released in the one terretory this week but still took $20 million taking it to number 3 on the global box office and the highest new film of the week.

Aquaman

The DC film reached another milestone this week as it is now the top grossing DC film ever beating The Dark Knight Rises from 2012.

A $15.1 million weekend from a massive 80 countries gives the film the fourth spot and takes the films total global gross to $1.09 Billion.

Creed II

The second Creed movie is doing better than the original movie and this week add $13.8 million from 45 countries to boosts its total gross to $190.9 million.

Still selling enough tickets to keep it on top for a third week is Dunkirk which holds off a strong debut from The Emoji Movie.

War film Dunkirk from director Christopher Nolan keeps pulling in the punters and stays on top for an incredible third weekend with a gross of £4.6 million.

This brings the films total to £28 million with no sign of slowing down yet, and with a weak load of new releases next week we could see a fourth weekend on top.

Coming in at number 2 this week is The Emoji Movie which takes a very good £2.7 million on its debut.

With the summer holidays in full swing this is a timely release and it could mean the film stays in the upper reaches of the chart for a while to come.

Big budget movie Valerian and The City of A Thousand Planets from Luc Besson should have been a massive hit but we have a bit of a flop on our hands as the film debuts at number 3 with £1.8 million.

With 6 weeks on the chart Baby Driver is this week longest running film and with nearly £40 million in total grosses Despicable Me 3 is the highest total grossing film.
