News from around the web

The Despicable Me series has been a massive success for Dreamworks, and of course the little yellow Minions have been part of that success, they get a sequel movie later this summer and today be get the first trailer.

The first Minions movie went on the gross $1.5 Billion globally so a sequel was perhaps inevitable, and it looks like the world of the Minions is going to come crashing in on the Despicable Me world as we get to see how Gru (the evil mastermind) teamed up with them.

The movie stars the voice talent of Steve Carrell as the central character of Gru and Pierre Coffin and the (voice!) of the Minions.

With director Kyle Balda behind the movie who is a veteran of the franchise we should have a good film on our hands, he is assisted by new comer to the series Brad Ableson.

The trailer os of course funny, and the film makers have an incredible talent for making us laugh with just the characters actions.

The film is set for a release later this summer on 10th June.

Top films globally in 2017: Beauty and the Beast top the global box office in 2017

2017 at the global box office was a story of remakes, sequels and superheroes where a beauty and a beast in live action was the top film of the year while the 8th Furious film wasn't far behind.

Beauty and the Beast, the live action version, was the top at the global box office during 2017 helping Disney to be, by a long way, the biggest studio of 2017 with 6 of the top 10 films coming from the mouse house.

Universal also did well in the runner up spot with Fast and Furious 8 and Despicable Me 3 at 2 and 3 as the long established series bucked a trend of diminished returns for sequels throughout the year.

Warner did well with the DC cinematic universe and the horror hit IT filling in the lower end of the list although Justice League failed to make the top 10 (although it is still on general release at the end of 2017).

Here is the top 10 films of 2017 across the globe.

  1. Beauty and the Beast - $1.2 billion
  2. Fast and Furious 8 - $1.23 billion
  3. Despicable Me 3 - $1.03 billion
  4. Star Wars: The Last Jedi - $953.36 million
  5. Spider-Man Homecoming - $880.16 million
  6. Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 - $863.73 million
  7. Thor: Ragnorak - $847.32 million
  8. Wonder Woman - $821.84 million
  9. Pirates Of The Caribbean: Salazars Revenge - $794.86
  10. IT - $698.06

Two big franchises chose this weekend to release their latest episodes and despite Jigsaw which is part of the Saw series doing well Thor: Ragnarok was the clear winner.

The Disney Marvel Cinematic Universe has become a mammoth series of films that simply cant be matched at the moment and the all star Avengers cars in Thor 3 (try saying that fast) debuts with an incredible £12.3 million making it the 47th top opening in the UK ever.

The film which stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor and is directed by exciting newcomer Taika Waititi joins the ever increasing lineup of Marvel movies and the ever increasing gross for Disney.

The future for the film looks good and, this is nearly double the opening of Thor: The Dark World which went on to gross £20 million so we could have a £35 - 40 million total UK gross.

New in the runner up position is the latest Saw film, this time by the name go Jigsaw, its actually the 8th Saw movie, and opens with £1.8 million.

This is a bit of a low for the series as the average opening for a Saw movie is about £2 - 3 million, but with Halloween this week it will see a boost, but then a big slump after, it could get to £5 million in total.

After a jump back to the top Blade Runner 2049 falls to number 5 with week with £0.6 million over the weekend, after 4 weeks of release this brings the films total to £17.4 million.

Also new this weekend was Breathe, a directorial debut from Andy Serkis starring former Spider-Man Andrew Garfield, it enters at number 8.

With Despicable Me 3 making a reappearance on the UK box office it is once again the longest running film with 17 weeks and the highest total grossing movie with £47.5 million .

This time last year Doctor Strange starring Benedict Cumberbatch was the top new film of the week making its debut at number 1 while Trolls fell to number 2 after a week on top.

Five years ago
The latest James Bond film Skyfall made an incredible debut at the top of the Uk box office, it knocked Madagascar 3: Europes Most Wanted from the top after a week.

Ten years ago

Fifteen years ago

Twenty years ago
With The Full Monty staring on top of the box office for another weekend the top new film was The Pacemaker with George Clooney and Nicole Kidman at number 2.

Twenty five years ago
Beauty And The Beast stayed at the top for a third weekend while the top new film was 1492 Conquest Of Paradise starring Gerard Depardieu at number 2.

With the slow box office of Blade Runner 2049 the UK chart sees a new number 1 in the shape of The Lego Ninjago Movie, but it was a battle for the top.

Its the third movie based on the lego franchise and each one has made its debut at the top, but The Lego Ninjago Movie has done so with the lowest opening.

With £3.6 million there is the feeling that the general public are starting to get used to seeing the Lego franchise on the big screen and are maybe waiting for home video before watching.

Regardless this is still a number one film and with a sequel to the original Lego Movie coming soon you can imagine that being a box office hit as well.

Blade Runner 2049 falls from the top to number 2 this week, but with a £3 million weekend it fought hard to stay on top.

The full week gross was £6.1 million so it easily was the top film of the week, the total gross currently sits at £12.1 million.

Also new this week is The Snowman at number 3 with a weekend gross of £1.3 million and Botoks is new at 5 with nearly £0.8 million.

The Ritual is new at number 7 with and the highly acclaimed movie Loving Vincent is new at number 9, Sally Potter just creeps into the top 10 at 10 as The Party makes its debut.

Despicable Me 3 has now been on the box office for 16 weeks and has a total gross of £47 million.

Historical charts

A year ago
The Girl on the Train stays at the top of the box office for a second weekend while Inferno starring Tom hanks and directed by Ron Howard is the top new film at 2.

Five years ago
Liam Neeson and Taken 2 hold onto the top spot for a second weekend while the top new film was Hotel Transylvania at number 2.

Ten years ago
Pixars Ratatouille was the top new film of the weekend at number 1 while The Heartbreak Kid fell from the top to number 3 after just 1 weekend.

Fifteen years ago
The last of the Hannibal Lecter films starring Anthony Hopkins made its debut at the top of the UK box office while Disney's Lilo and Stitch fell to number 2 after a week on top.

Twenty years ago
Disney's Hercules made its debut at the top of the box office knocking The Full Monty down to number 2 after 6 weeks at the top.

Twenty five years ago
The original animated version of Disney's Beauty and The Beast made its debut at the top while Patriot Games fell to number 3 after a couple of weeks at the top.

Its taken 35 years to produce a sequel to one of the greatest sci-fi movies of all time and Blade Runner 2049 does what its predecessor couldn't and tops the box office.

Its hard to draw comparisons when there is such a gap between two parts but Blade Runner was considered a flop on release and only later was considered a classic, although not setting the box office alight as expected the sequel does manage a £6 million debut.

The reviews and the anticipation should have perhaps demanded a £10 million plus opening, but perhaps the long running time and stylised cinematography put people off.

Falling to number 2 after 2 weeks on top is Kingsman The Golden Circle which still manages a very respectable £2.1 million.

This brings the films total to date to £19.4 million, this means the film has in 3 weeks outgrossed the originals 9 week gross of £16 million.

Also new this week is The Mountain Between Us at number 4 with £0.7 million and the event feature Nora from the Met Opera (Norma Met Opera 2017) at number 7.

For the first time in 8 weeks there is a new highest total grossing movie, although it is Despicable Me 3 which is also the longest running film with 15 weeks, it has grossed £47 million.
