News from around the web

JK Rowling unleashes her vision of the Wizarding World beyond the mega successful life of Harry Potter in the shape of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them which enters the top with great but not excellent opening weekend.

A £15 million debut is nothing to be sniffed at, and it is the 20 top opening in the UK ever, but only 2005's Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire scored a lower opening of the Potter series.

Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban from 2004 was the biggest Potter opening with £23.8 million on its debut and is the 3rd top opening ever in the UK.

Fantastic Beasts has some big shoes to fill and with the very favourable reviews it could be a long and slow burner, but in less than 4 weeks Star Wars does the same and expands its universe which will have a knock on effect.

Arrival entered the box office at number 1 last week and falls to number 2 this week with £1.5 million which brings its total to £5.7 million after 10 days of play, its should overtake Prisoners as director Denis Villeneuve top film.

Only one other new entry this week, Andre Rieu Christmas With Andre, and event cinema, at number 4, it took just over £1 million.

Bridget Jones's Baby was once again the longest running film on the chart at 10 weeks and the top total grossing move with £47 million.

Directed by Jonathan Liebesman and starring Megan Fox the new spin makes £4.7 million on it's opening weekend, there is no data for the opening weekend of the 1990 version, but an animated version came out in 2007 called TMNT which tool just less than a million pond on it's debut.

Gone Girl is still doing very well at the box office and this weeks falls into second place with a weekend gross of £2.3 million pound to bring it's total gross in the UK to £14.2 million which places it between Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Terminator Salvation as the top UK films.

Five years ago

Ten years ago

Fifteen years ago
American Pie made it's debut at the top of the box office and Big Daddy fell from the top to the number three spot.

There was little doubt over what would be the top film this weekend at the UK box office, and with ease the David Fincher directed Gone Girl starring Ben Affleck debuts at the top.

It's weekend take of £4.1 million Gone Girl makes a very impressive October debut. It has a long way to go for it to be Ben Affleck's top grossing film which is currently Shakespeare in Love from 1999.

Director David Fincher also has an impressive box office record, his best film to date being 1995's Seven, his second film, and considered a classic.

Coming in quite respectably in second is Dracula Untold which debuts at number 2 with £1.7 million.

Falling a single place to number 3 this week is The Equalizer which add's £1.2 million to make a 10 day total of £4.3.

Last weeks top film was an event movie for one day only but it had some 'encore' screenings which means it has gone on and made £114,000 this week but, as expected, tumbles down the chart.
