News from around the web

Its still unusual that a film will climb to the top of the box office, but this week with many people otherwise occupied with the start of the Euro 2016 championships Me Before You climbs to the top.

Last week the film entered at number 3 but this week manages to top the chart, and is the only film this week to take over £1 million in weekend grosses.

The film not has a total UK gross of £4.4 million and with the Euro's with us for the next 3 weeks who knows what could happen?

With a lot of studio's not willing to release new film at the moment the rest of the chart reads very similar to last week, the highest new film is the Melissa McCarthy vehicle at number 7 which manages just below £600,000 for the weekend.

Highest total grossing movie is The Jungle book which has taken £45.1 million after 10 weeks and longest run on the chart is 11 weeks for Zootopia.

Worthy or not this week is that this week's cinema had the lowest total take of 2016 and the lowest since September last year.
