News from around the web

Liam Neeson stars in the final of the Taken trilogy in the new film topping the sales charts in the UK this week.

Tak3n was released in UK cinemas on January 9th 2015 where it made its debut at the top of the box office with a very decent weekend gross of £6.7 million.

It remained at the top the following week and spend a total of 6 weeks on the top 15 making a sharp steady decline.

The film took a total of £17.4 million and is the 225th highest grossing film in the UK, in America is grossed $325 million and is the US 295th highest grosser of all time.

Kingsman The Secret Service falls just a single place to number 2 this week after a single week at the top.

Also new this week is: Football documentary Gascoigne about the famed footballing legend at number 4 and hard hitting drama Selma at number 10.

Disney hold on to the top spot this week with their latest animated big screen movie Big Hero 6, and in a repeat of last week it only just out grosses Kingsman The Secret Service which holds at 2.

Another £2.5 million over the weekend sees the Hero 6's UK gross rise to £7.5 million from it's 11 days of release, including preview screenings.

Interestingly it was the weekend which gave Hero 6 the top spot, looking at the chart for the full week, Kingsman takes the top spot by nearly a million pound.

Highest new film of the week is from the Aardman animated studio, Shaun The Sheep Movie enters at number 4.

Shaun takes ££2 million for the weekend, not the numbers that Wallace and Gromit are used to but it's up there with other Aardman films.

Also new on the UK box office are: Jupiter Ascending from the Wachowski siblings at 4 and Selma at number 6.

Historical box office

A year ago
Mr. Peabody and Sherman entered the box office at the top on it's debut weekend of release knocking The Wolf of Wall Street from the top to number 3.

Five years ago
Avatar retained the top spot for yet another week, The Princess and The Frog from the mouse house was the highest new film at 2.

Ten years ago
Meet The Fockers stayed at the top for another week leaving Ocean's Twelve to land on the box office at number 2 on it's debut.

Fifteen and Twenty years ago
Oscar winner American Beauty was still at the top of the box office fifteen years ago while twenty years ago the controversial Natural Born Killers was the top film in the country.

Clint Eastwood scores his biggest every weekend gross with American Sniper now on wide release in America, and on the back of major award success.

American Sniper has been on limited release since the end of last year and on it's first weekend in 3,555 screen takes nearly $90 million.

Last weeks top film, Tak3n, fall right down to number 4 this week, it's $17.4 million gross is 55% down from it's debut weekend.

Also new this week is Padding at number 2, The Wedding Ringer at number 3, Selma is at number 5 after 4 weeks of release.

Taken is now a trilogy of films and this the third in that trilogy, and apparently the last, takes the US top spot at the box office with ease this weekend.

Tak3n, which I don't think it will be called but will call it for now took $40.4 million at the North American box office, thats slightly less than part 2 but double that of 2009's original hit.

The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies which was the top film last week falls right down to number 4 this week.

Selma climbs to number 2 this week as it goes on general release and Into The Wood is at 3.

Taken 3 was the only new release this week.
