News from around the web

After last weeks almost static home video chart this week we have 5 in the top 10 alone with Sausage Party leading the way by landing at number 1 with £2.7 million on its debut.

Sausage Party was released in the UK on 2nd September 2015 where it landed at number 1, a good debut for an 18 rated animated movie.

After a couple of weeks at he top it then took a sharp decline down the box office spending just 5 weeks in cinemas in total.

Despite this relatively short box office run it actually did really well and ended up with a total gross of £7.5 million.

Also new this week, at number 2 is Mechanic Resurrection a number 10 film from August, Bad Moms at number 3 a number 2 film from August and finishing off the top 5 is Brotherhood a number 2 films from early September.

Also making their debut this week are The Purge Election Year at number 8 a number 5 film from August and finally War Dogs at 13 a number 4 film from August.

For the second weekend Disney and Pixar hold on to the top with Finding Dory which returned to number 1 last week after a 2 week drop to number 2.

The fishy tale of the forgetful fish is having a fantastic UK box office run with a £1.5 million 5th weekend bringing its total gross to £35.8 million.

With another week to go of the School summer holidays Dory could well make another weekend at the top of the box office.

Not far behind if the highest new entry of the week, comedy Bad Moms, starring Mila Kunis of Family Guy fame.

The film takes £1.4 million from the weekend, only £400,000 behind the top film.

Also new this week is War Dogs at number 4, The Purge Election Year at number 5 and Lights Out at number 8.

Highest total grossing movie this week is Finding Dory while the longest running movie on the box office is Star Trek Beyond and The BFG with 6 weeks each.

Historical Charts

A year ago
Suprise hit Straight Outta Compton made its debut a the top knocking off Paper Town which fell right down to number 8.

Five years ago
Staying at number one was The Inbetweeners Movie on its second week while the highest new film was One Day in at number 2.

Ten years ago
You, Me and Dupree was the new film at the top of the box office while Snakes On A Plane fell to number 2.

Fifteen years ago
Planet of The Apes didn't move off the top spot while highest new film of the week was Heartbreakers at number 3.

Twenty years ago
There was no moving Independence Day from the top of the box office, even for Arnold Schwarzenegger which took Eraser in at number 2.

Twenty five years ago
Arnold Schwarzenegger was at the top of the box office for a second weekend with Terminator 2: Judgment Day and with a static top 3 Pump Up The Volume was the highest new film at 4.

Despite a number of new releases this week Finding Dory still manages to dominate the global box office now after 3 weeks of release.

Dory this week grossed $76.3 million globally, now released in 41 countries, this brings its total gross now over the half billion mark to $538.2 million.

There are still many countries where the film has not had a release so the film making it to billion mark is probably at this stage a certainty.

Highest new film of the week is The Legend of Tarzan which shows up in 20 countries and has a debut gross of $56.9 million.

The week had a number of new releases but with the good weather and holidays throughout the world nothing managed to capture the market, or maybe it was the lack of summer blockbuster? The rest of the new releases are as follows: The Purge Election Years at 5, The BFG at 8, Ice Age Collision Course at 9, although it must be said that these film all had single digit country release and are no where near saturation yet.

Here is the top 5 global box office for this week.

  1. Finding Dory - $76,300,542
  2. The Legend Of Tarzan - $56,935,000
  3. Independence Day Resurgence - $56,700,000
  4. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Out Of The Shadows - $31,265,000
  5. The Purge Election Year - $30,997,840

It's the weekend of Independence Day in America which has historically been a strong weekend o#for new releases as people often have a longer weekend, but this year seems reletively week.

Heading the chart for a third weekend is Disney and Pixars Finding Dory which adds another $41 million to its now impressive total.

That total in America is $372.2 million and the film is proving to be another runnaway hit for Pixar and Disney, Diney dont seem to be able to hit a duff note at the moment!

Hihgest new film of hte week lands at number 2, The Legend of Tarzan, which looking at all the promo material is more about monkeys than tarzan, not suprising with the success of the recent Apes movies.

Tarzan debuts with a weekend gross of $38.1 million, a sign of a weaker debut showing than would normally be expected over the long weekend.

Also new this week are The Purge: Election Year which debuts at number 3 and surisingly, and from Disney is Spielbergs The BFG which debuts at number 4 with less than $20 million.

Highest total grossing film on the US chart this week, and by a massive margin is Finding Dory, longest runners are The Conjuring 2 The Enfield Project and Now You See Me 2 both on 4 weeks.
