After a release last week in some smaller location Despicable Me 3 gets its wider global release and tops the chart in the process.

Diminishing returns for the series means the third film gets the lowest wide release of the series but it still manages a $171 million for the week from 53 countries.

This brings the films total global gross to $192.3 million, well below the other films in the series and with Despicable Me 2 grossing just under a billion dollars and Minions taking $1.1 billion this one could fall way short.

Transformers: The Last Knight made its debut at the top last week but this week falls to number 2, small $85 million week gross from 45 countries takes the films total to $429.9 million.

Baby Driver this week goes to 17 countries sits at number 4 with $27.8 million which brings the films total gross to $36.8 million.

Highest new film of the week is The House starring Will Farrell and Amy Poehler which debuts at 9 with $11.7 million from 21 countries.

Wonder Woman is the top total grossing film of the week, currently at number 3 its taken $707.9 million in world grosses.

The Minions are proving to be a massive worldwide hit and hold onto the top for another week leaving Ant-Man to sit in the wings again.

To be fair the Minions is released in more territories, 61, as opposed to Ant-Man's 49, but still the Minions have now grossed $759.3 million after a $66 Million weekend, it has now grossed more that Despicable Me and on course for Despicable Me 2.

Chinese film Monster Hunt is at 3 from just 5 territories having grossed $46 million so far, it has this week become the highest grossing Chinese film with $212 million dollars.

Highest new film of the week is Pixels the new Adam Sandler film with takes $45.4 million for the week from 57 countries.

Other new film doing well across the world are Paper Towns with $20.5 million from 38 countries and Southpaw with $20 million from 5 countries.

Here is the full worldwide top 10

  1. Minions - $66,058,050
  2. Ant-Man - $60,165,000
  3. Monster Hunt - $46,000,000
  4. Pixels - $45,400,000
  5. Inside Out - $35,656,000
  6. Jian Bing Man (Pancake Man) - $25,000,000
  7. Paper Towns - $20,500,000
  8. Southpaw - $20,000,000
  9. The Assassination - $19,500,000
  10. Trainwreck - $17,501,950

This week Jurassic World lost its 2 week hold at the top of the UK box office and made way for those little yellow people as Minions makes its debut.

Taking over the number 1 spot with a very good weekend gross of £11.5 million and it is clearly looking to repeat the success of Despicable me 2 for which the Minions became famous.

Despicable Me 2 was released at about the same time in 2013 and took £14 million on it's opening weekend, it did become the top grossing film of that year.

Jurassic World fell a single place on it's third weekend of release but the film is still going great guns and is now the top grossing film of the year with £48.9 million.

Other new films this week are Knock Knock from Eli Routh at number 7 and Slow West at number 10.

Historical Charts

A year ago
Mrs. Brown's Boys D'Movie made it's debut on the box office at the top of the chart and knocked The Fault In Our Stars to number 2 after only a week at the top.

Five years ago
Get Him to The Greek entered at the top of the box office while Killers fell from the top into number 2 after a week.

Ten years ago
Batman Begins held its place at the top of the box office for a second week while the top new film was Kung Fu Hustle at number 4.

Fifteen years ago
There was no shifting Gladiator as it spent yet another week at the top of the box office, Big Mommas House made it's debut at number 2.

Twenty years ago
Bad Boys held on the top spot for a second week while the top new film was Tank Girl which made its debut at number 3.

This week we finally see the full release of Transformers: Age of Extinction and How to Train Your Dragon 2, and predictable they dominate the upper end of the box office chart.

Taking the top spot is the 4th in the Transformers series of movies from director Michael. The film had previews last weekend and takes the number 1 position with ease this week grossing £11.7 million in the process, it is the biggest grossing opening weekend of the year so far.

It's interesting to note this opening gross does include the £8 million from last weeks preview screenings, a £3 - 4 million is a closer opening weekend figure.

Opening in second place after going on general release is How to Train Your Dragon 2 which also includes money from it's previews over the last 3 or 4 weeks.

Falling to third this week is last weeks top film Mrs. Brown's Boy's D'Movie which after 3 weeks has grossed £11.8 million.

There were a number of other new film this which included
Begin Again at 5
Boyhood at 7
Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania at 12

Last year at the box office Monsters University opened at the top of the chart knocking Despicable Me 2 into second place after 2 weeks at the top.

Five years ago Sasha Baron Cohen opened at the top with Bruno which knocked Ice Age: Dawn of The Dinosaurs to second place.

Ten years ago Shrek 2 held on tight at the top for another week keeping Around the World in 80 Days in second place for it's debut.

Fifteen years ago there was little change at the top with The Mummy retaining it's lead for a second week, highest new film was 10 Things I Hate About You at 5.

As expected the movie version of Mrs. Browns Boys took the top spot at the UK box office, and with quite a strong margin over the rest.

On it's debut weekend Mrs. Brown's Boys D'Movie took an incredible £4.3 million, far higher than expected and proving that the Irish sit-com has quite a following.

I suspect that this is a fairly front loaded event and we could see it fall quite sharply, I dont think it has the lasting appeal of movie like The Inbetweeners Movie.

Falling to the runner up spot this week is The Fault in our stars which made £1.7 million from the weekend bringing it's 10 day gross to £6.7 million.

Other new film to chart this week are:
Chef at 5
How to Train Your Drans 2 (still only on previews) at 6
Walking on Sunshine at 7
Cold in July at 11
Ek Villain at 12
Punjab 1984 at 13

This time last year Despicable Me 2 hit the top of the box office on it's debut week of release, it would go on to be the top film in the UK of 2013, it knocked Man of Steel into 2nd place.

Five years ago Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was still the top film in the UK and Year One with Jack Black was the highest new film at 3.

Ten years ago it was still Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban at the top while the top new film of the week was Tom Hanks on Lady Killers at 4.

Fifteen years ago Brendan Fraser made a big screen comeback in The Mummy which debuted at the top of the box office knocking The Matrix into the runner up spot after only a week.
