With the release of Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 we see a new film taking over at the top as the Marvel film takes over from Fast and Furious 8.
Released globally but not yet in America the films which has gained a massive following after the first film takes $101.2 million on its debut, largely from the UK, Brazil and Australia.
Guardians 2 this week is released in 37 countries so still has much of the globe to go so expect the gross to ballon over the coming weeks and a $1 billion gross is on the cards.
Fast and Furious 8 this week made it over the $1 billion mark and became the top American film ever released in China, edging out Fast and Furious 7 from the top.
The film currently sits at number 2 on the global box office with a weekly gross of $87.7 million from 67 countries most of which is from the non-American market.
Also making an impressive show this week is Shock Wave which takes $24.4 million from 4 countries, mainly China, and is at number 4 this week.
Highest total grossing movie on across the globe this week is Beauty and The Beast which has now grossed an incredibly $1.14 billion.
A very quiet week for releases on this Friday 13th, with only one new release of note that has a fairly niche market it should leave the field open for some old film shine.
The supernatural thriller Oculus starring former Doctor Who star Karen Gillan is the biggest new release of the week, opening on Friday 13th as a marketing mechanism.
A strong advertising campaign and the clear interest from Doctor Who fans who want to know what Gillan has been unto in the last year should see it appear at least top 3 with a 1 million plus opening.
22 Jump Street could hold on at the top, but it a male buddy movie and with the World Cup in Brazil having a big England match on Saturday night (that has a bigger male interest) Maleficent could well see itself go back to the top.
It could be the slowest weekend of the year for multiplexes as the forecast good weather and World Cup will have a major impact on box office takings.
Other new film this week are
The Hooligan Factory
The creators of Ice Age have done it again with a new franchise as the Brazilian flightless bird Rio takes the top spot from the hopping rabbit.
It was a slow weekend at the box office with only the top film taking over a million pound and that film is new entry Rio which debuts at the top with £1,515,853, there was little else to challenge the film with the only other new release entering at nine and ten with The Roommate and Mars Needs Moms. Staying firm in second place is Source Code which raked in £848,366 taking its total gross to £2,990,826.
Limitless also hold its position from last week staying in third place with a weekend gross of £737,417 which brings its total to a fairly good £5,744,993.
Four and five and taken up by last weeks rabbit fest falling quite hard with £611,367 taking its total to £2,623,612 and at five Sucker Punch seems to be suffering from not being a summer blockbuster taking £346,399 over the weekend to a total of £1,633,285. This weeks box office is well down on this time last year when Clash of the Titans was riding high on the charts and the top five was full of high earning films How to Train Your Dragon, Kick-Ass, Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang and Alice in Wonderland.
