News from around the web

Despite there being 7 new releases hitting the top 15 films this week the top five films in the UK remain unchanged from last week with Suicide Squad remaining at the top.

On its second weekend of release the DC comics anti-hero picture took £4.2 million, down just over 66% from the previous weekend.

The film has now taken £22 million during its 10 days of release and is not that far behind stable mate Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice.

With the rest of the top 4 remaining fairly static the highest new film of the week is Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates starring Zak Efron and Anna Kendrick.

The comedy film took just over a million pound on its debut weekend in the UK, but the suspicion is it will fall fast in the coming weeks ready for a home video release.

Big suprise of the week is the Disney remake of Petes Dragon landing at number 6 with £844,090, one of the Mouse Houses smallest hits in a while.

Other new films this week are Newrve at number 7, The Shallows at number 8, Mohenjo Daro at number 11, Rustom at number 12 and finally Wiener Dog at number 14.

Longest running film this week and highest total gross is The Secret Life of Pets, 8 weeks on the chart and £33 million.

Historical Charts

A year ago
Pixels made its debut at the top of the box office smashing Fantastic Four down to number 6 after a single week at the top.

Five years ago
Rise of The Planet of The Apes took over the top spot on its debut knocking off Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2 which fell to number 3.

Ten years ago
Cars remained at the top of the box office for a third week while highest new entry was Monster House right down at number 4.

Fifteen years ago
Cats and Dogs remained at the top of the box office for another week with The Parole Officer entering highest at number 5.

Twenty years ago
Independence Day was the top new film of the week making its debut at the top with Twister falling to number 2 on its third week of release.

There was just one major release this week there which basically means there was inevitably going to be a new film making its debut at the top, and as predicted Warner Bros. Suicide Squad does just that.

Continuing the DC Cinematic Universe that was started in Man of Steel and Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice this film does something the Marvel/Disney have not yet dared, put the bad guys front and centre.

And audiences have lapped this up with Suicide Squad topping the UK box office with an excellent £11.2 million, nearly as big as the much more anticipated Batman V Superman from March.

That superhero movie sank quickly at the box office so we'll be watching things closely to see if it does similar.

Worth noting is that if the chart listing was taken over the whole week then Finding Dory would sit at the top with £12 million.

Highest total grossing on this weeks top 10 is The Secret Life of Pets which has now grossed over £32 million, while longest stay on the box office is The Angry Birds Movie with 11 weeks.

This weekend saw the release of two of this summers most anticipated films, and sequels, in Finding Dory and Jason Bourne, and the forgetful little fish won the weekend.

Finding Dory debut weekend in the UK stands at &pond;8.1 million, and excellent opening by all means and not only one of Pixars highest in the UK but also one of the top animation openings.

Compared to 2003s Finding Nemo, and despite the more negative reviews, the film opens higher, but compared to ticket sales Dory (1.1 million) is half a million below Nemo (1.6 million).

Jason Bourne comes in a comfortable second place this week with £7.6 million which is the highest of the series to date.

The BFG falls from the top where it debuted last week to number 3 this week, although if you take in the whole week it is the top grossing movie (Monday - Sunday) with £9.1 million, total gross for the movie is £14 million.

Highest gross and longest run on the top 10 is The Secret Life of Pets which has now grossed £30 million over 6 weeks.
