With such an up-front fan base and its gross growing so quickly Avengers: Endgame was never going to have an elongated run at the top of the box office and this week John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum takes over at number 1 on its debut weekend.

A Dogs Journey

John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

The third in the series of action films which star Keanu Reeves and are directed by Chad Stahelski hits the top of the global box office on its debut, the best of the series.

The film takes a global gross of $92.2 million on its opening weekend from 67 countries.

Pokémon: Detective Pikachu

The live action Pokémon movie stays at number 2 on its second weekend of release with a global gross of $78.6 million from 73 countries.

This boosts the film starring Ryan Reynolds and Justice Smith total gross to $287.4 million.

Avengers: Endgame

The mighty Marvel film drops to number 3 on its 4th weekend of release with a gross of $76.6 million from 56 countries.

The films total global gross is now $2.61 Billion, the only record it need to break now is that of the highest grossing movie of all time, Avatar sits at $2.7 Billion so it is agonisingly close.

A Dogs Journey

The story of a dogs reincarnation starring Dennis Quaid and Abby Ryder Fortson stenters the global charts at number 4 this week with $22 million from 15 countries.

This is not the films first week of release globally but the first it grossed enough to chart.

The Hustle

The con artist movie starring Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson drops to number 5 this week with $15 million from 34 countries to push its total global gross to $51.2 million.

After a phenomenal run at the global box office Avengers: Endgame is starting to show signs of slowing down, although it remains at the top of this weeks global box office despite a strong showing from new movie Pokémon: Detective Pikachu.

Pokemon: Detective Pikachu

Avengers: Endgame

The mighty Marvel film has had the most successful run on the global box office ever and broken every box office record along the way, this week it manges another $16 million from 56 countries on its third week of release.

This brings the films total global gross to $2.48 Billion and it is easily the second highest grossing film of all time and its 'only' $300 million behind Avatars all time record of $2.78 Billion.

Despite the slow down the film is still likely to beat Avatar and become the top grossing film of all time - next week will be a telling time to see how much the film slows when box office levels become 'normal'.

Pokémon: Detective Pikachu

The Nintendo video game franchise has been entertaining kids in cartoon form since 2000, but now, maybe inspired by Disney, the Pocket Monsters make their way to the real world in the first live action film in the franchise.

Taking $161 million for the weekend from 63 countries on its debut the film wasn't too far behind Avengers: Endgame.

The Hustle

Also new this week is this retelling/remake starring Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson and despite bad reviews takes $27.2 million on its global debut from 37 countries.

Capernaum

Two weeks in and the Nadine Labaki directed movie is at 4 taking $8.3 million from 15 countries pushing its global total to $56.3 million.

Long Shot

Despite the good reviews the Jonathan Levine directed comedy falls to 5 this week with $7.6 million from 16 countries taking it total gross $25.8 million after 2 weeks.

The Mighty Kong conquers all at the top of the US box office this weekend as Kong Skull Island takes over at number one from Logan.

Starring a host of big Hollywood names including Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson the film opens in the US to a great $61 million.

Considered a re-boot the last time Kong appeared on screen was the Peter Jackson directed film from 2005 which was not received well.

Falling to number 2 this week after a week at the top is Logan, a $37 million second weekend brings the films total gross to $152.6 million.

Hidden Figures is yet again the highest total grossing movie on the US box office while La La Land is the longest running movie with 14 weeks on the chart.

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.
