Avengers: Endgame

11 weeks on and the MCU film is still inside the top 10, this week the film sits at number 9 and has a US gross of $847.8 Million.

This week on the UK home video charts animated hit The Secret Life of Pets takes over from X-Men Apocalypse at the top.

The Secret Life of Pets was a massive hit for Universal that was released on 24th June 2016 and it hit the top of the box office on its debut with £9.5 million, the 74th best UK opening.

The film spent 3 weeks at the top before making a very slow decent down the box office, it spent an incredible 14 weeks in total on the top 15.

The total gross for the film in the UK is £35.8 million which makes it the 68th top grossing film while globally it took $864.2 million (£696 million) and is the 50th top film across the world.

Last weeks top film, X-Men Apocalypse, fell down to number 3 this week after a week at the top.

Also new this week is Independence Day Resurgence, sequel to the 1996 hit film it made number 2 on the box office on 24th June.

Highest new film of the week is the remake of Ben-Hur which lands at number 2 this week with a debut gross on £1.05 million.

It hard to judge how this compares to the 1959 classic as attendance figures are hard to come by but it is considered a classic and it would have grossed nearly £100 million in todays money.
