News from around the web

On the Uk box office this week we have the latest X-Men film taking over at the top on its debut week of release ending Captain America's 3 week run.

£7.3 million was enough to see X-Men Apocalypse reach the top of the chart, this is fairly average for an X-Men movie although it is lower than the previous entry X-Men Days of Future Past.

Interesingly the Wolverine movies have fared the same for debut grosses meaning that the average gross of a X-Men universe movie is in the £6 million region.

Last weeks top film Captain America: Civil War falls from the top quite hard to number 4 with a weekend take of £1.3 million bringing its total to £34 million.

Highest total Grossing movie on the box office this week is The Jungle Book at number 3 with £41 million.

Historical charts

A year ago
Pitch Perfect 2 was still at the top of the list while the highest new film was at number 3, Tomorrowland.

Five years ago
Pirates of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the fourth in the series, made its debut at the top while the previous weeks top film, Thor, fell to number 3.

Ten years ago
Tom Hanks starred in the adaptation of The Da Vinci Code which made its debut at number 1 knocking Mission:Impossible III to number 2.

Fifteen years ago
The Mummy Returns was the new film at the top knocking Bridget Jones's Diary down to the number 2 spot.

Twenty years ago
Toy Story made its way back to the top of the charts while Money Train was the highest new film of the week.

Twenty five years ago
Misery stayed at the top of the box office for a second week while L.A. Story starring Steve Martin was the highest new film.

It was a close run thing this week between Captain America: Civil War and The Angry Birds Movie making its debut but in the end the Marvel film won.

Civil War now makes it three weeks at the top and this week adds £2.7 million to its gross which has now soared to £32.1 million.

The film is now the 5th highest grossing of the year and before it finishes its run it should beat Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice and Deadpool, currently at 4 and 3 respectively.

The Angry Birds Movie is the highest new film at number 2 which on its debut takes £2.1 million.

Aiming squarely at kids but also appealing to adults that hooked on the game the film loosely follows the plot of the games.

The film should do well over the coming half term but will have limited appeal after that.

Longest stay by a film on the box office this week is Zootopia with 8 weeks and the highest grossing movie is The Jungle Book at £39.3 million after 5 weeks.
