On the UK video chart this week Spectre manages to hold on to the top spot for a second week while war time drama Suffragette is the highest new film.

After a fantastic showing on the video chart last week there was no move for the latest Bond movie this week with sales too strong for any of the new releases.

Suffragette was the highest new film at 2, the film was released into UK cinemas on 16th October 2016 where it has a debut week at number 2.

The film put in 6 weeks inside the top 15 films in the UK before hanging around the box office for another 12 weeks and was still in some cinemas last weekend.

The film didn't bust any balls at the box office but did manage to rake in a fairly good £9.9 million over its run.

Also new on the video chart this week is: Brooklyn entering at number 3, The Intern new at number 8 and finally Paranormal Activity The Ghost Dimension at number 9.

Despite being released in only 6 European countries, and having its release date on a Monday night, there was never going to be a bigger film than the new Bond movie on its opening week.

Hence the new outing for James Bond, Spectre, outperforms all in its path and is the biggest film across the world this week with a massive $80.4 million from 6 countries.

Good new for the franchise is that this outstrips the previous movie Skyfall and the film is currently on tract to be the biggest film in the franchise.

With the film opening in America this coming Friday it should see the film comfortably sit at the top for the coming weeks.

Falling to number 3 this week with $28.4 is The Martian, which surrenders the top spot and is also outgrossed by Hotel Transylvania 2 which hangs on to number 2, it does have the widest release with 83 countries.

The Martian has done amazingly well at the world box office and has current taken $428,4 million over its 6 week run and is still playing in 56 countries.

Highest total grossing movie this week is Ant-Man with has to date grossed $513,7 million during its cinema run.
