X-Men: Dark Phoenix
Hitting the top of the global box office the latest, and probably last, film in the 20th Century Fox X-Men saga the film manages a weekend gross of $140 million from 54 countries.
This is by far the lowest debut of any of the series and after the unfavourable reviews it will most likely end up the lowest grossing movie of the series.
The Disney live action movie is doing well in areas like Europe but not doing so well in North America hence the film manages a good $92.1 million from 56 countries and sits at number 2 this week.
This pushes the films total global gross after 3 weeks to a very respectable $604.8 million.
The Secret Life Of Pets 2
The animated sequel gets its North American release this weekend and flies back up the box office to number 3 with a weekend gross of $63.1 million from 31 countries.
The films total gross is now at $97 million after 3 weeks of release.
Godzilla: King Of The Monsters
The big monster movie falls hard from the top where it debuted last weekend to number 4 with $62.6 million from 79 countries.
The films total global gross is $292.2 million after 2 weeks of release.
The Elton John bio-pic falls to 5 this week with $27 million from 51 countries for a 3 week total gross of $101.7 million.
The Marvel mega hit falls to number 12 this week with a total global gross of $2.73 Billion after 7 weeks of release.
Its looking increasingly unlikely it will topple the Avatar total of $2.78 Billion although it can't be totally written off yet.
