News from around the web

Dwayne Johnson seems to be the biggest star on the planet at the moment and today he introduces the trailer for his upcoming movie Jungle Cruise.

The film also stars Emily Blunt and it is inspired by the ride at the Disneyland theme park where a boat takes a group of travelers on a boat trip down a river in the Amazon jungle where supernatural things start to happen.

The Pirates Of The Caribbean films were also based on a ride at Disneyland and those films took over a Billion each at the box office, although Tomorrowland was based on an area in Disneyland and that film bombed so the writing is on the wall for how this film will do.

The first trailer looks promising and although you get feelings of Johnsons own Jumanji as well as the 1999 film The Mummy there is enough here to get us excited.

The film is out on 24th of July 2020 so we will have to enjoy the ride until then, you can check out the trailer below.

It was a quiet weekend at the UK box office as top 15 total gross reaches a level not seen since December 2015 with Tom Cruises new film American Made takes the crown.

Grossing a little over 1 million pound the film had little to no competition for the top spot and takes nearly £900,000 less than last week number 1 film.

Ironically what American Made has done that Cruises last film didn't do is go to number 1, The Mummy released in early June could only manage a number 2 debut, although it did it with £3.3 million.

Of interest is this weeks full weekly breakdown, if the chart was based on Monday - Sunday figures this week chart would have been as follows: Dunkirk, The Hitmans Bodyguard, The Emoji Movie, Annabelle Creation, Despicable Me 3.

American Made is the only film this week to take over a million is takings, Dunkirk which is at number 2 this week is just shy and yet again nearly took the top spot.

The Hitmans Bodyguard fell from the top to number 3 this week with a weekend gross of just over £800,000 which is 4% drop from last week.

The films total gross after 2 weekend of play is now £4 million.

Also new this week are Logan Lucky directed by Steven Soderbergh at number 4 and Detroit starring John Boyega and directed by Kathryn Bigelow at number 7.

Dunkirk is this weeks top total grossing film with a total that is now over £50 million while Despicable Me 3 has now been on the chart for a run of 9 weeks.

Historical charts

A year ago
Finding Dory stayed at the top of the box office while the top new film was Bad Moms at number 2.

Five years ago
Brave stayed at the top for a second weekend while the top new film of the week was Keith Lemon The Film at number 5.

Ten years ago
The Bourne Ultimatum spent a second weekend at the top while Knocked Up was the top new film at 2.

Fifteen years ago
Hitting the top spot on its debut was The Guru, it knocked Men In Black II down to number 2 after 3 weeks on top.

Twenty years ago
Men In Black spent its fourth week on top while the top new film was the excellent horror movie Event Horizons at number 2.

Twenty five years ago
Alien 3 was the top new film of the week making its debut at number 1 while Lethal Weapon 3 fell down to number 2 after a single week at the top.

Making it a trio of weeks at the top this week Wonder Woman beats again The Mummy while the top new film is Churchill at number 5.

The DC Universe from Warner Bros. really has kicked into gear now with Wonder Woman taking £1.8 million on its third weekend of release.

This puts the films total gross in the UK at £16.2 million, although last years Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice made more it was very front loaded and by this point in its run had really slowed down.

The Mummy has done better in the UK than in other territories where it sunk on the second weekend, this week its still at 2 with £1.1 million for a total of £4.9 million.

Highest new film of the week is Churchill which enters the UK box office at number 5 with £392,732.

The film starring Brian Cox and Miranda Richardson has been praised critically but as a small independent film doesn’t get the reach of a high budget blockbuster and was only screened in 345 sites.

The film has done well to take this much and as is often the case with British film it is sure to hang around for many weeks to come.

Other films making their debut this weekend are Gifted starring Chris Evans and the Nick Broomfield documentary Whitney Can I Be Me at number 10.

Longest running film this weekend is The Boss Baby with 11 weeks on the chart while the top grossing movie is Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 which has now grossed £40 million in total.

Historical charts

A year ago
The Conjuring 2 The Enfield Case was the top new film making its debut at number 1 while Me Before You fell to number 2 after 2 weeks on top.

Five years ago
Prometheus retained the top slot for a third weekend while the top new film was Rock of Ages at number 4.

Ten years ago
4: Rise of The Silver Surfer topped the charts on its debut knocking Ocean’s Thirteen down to number 2 after a week of release.

Fifteen years ago
Spider-Man (the original Sam Raimi version) made its debut at the top of the UK box office, it knocked Star Wars Episode II: Attack of The Clones down to number 2 after 4 weeks on top.

Twenty years ago
remaining at the top was The Fifth Element while the top new film was Whoopy Goldberg in The Associate at number 7.

Twenty five years ago
The Lawnmower Man held onto the top for a second weekend with Dolly Pardon in Straight Talk the top new film at number 4.

Tom Cruise has always been a film favourite at the UK box office having scored hit film after hit film, but his latest film The Mummy which must have seemed like a sure fire hit falls at number 2 this week.

It was a very close call in the end with The Mummy pulling in £3.3 million on its debut, if you compare this to Cruises last film

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back it is a million higher, but compared to his last franchise film Mission:Impossible - Rogue Nation it is a couple of million shy.

This probably doesn't mean the actor is starting to loose his sure fire hit status but if you compare this The Mummy to the 1999 Brendan Fraser version of the film its about equal, and thats film debuted nearly 20 years ago.

Remaining at the top for a second week, and by the thinest of margins is Wonder Woman which takes £3.4 million this weekend.

This brings the films total gross after 10 days of play to £12.8 million and well on track to be one of the highest grossing movies of the year.

Also new this week at number 5 is the Live Cinema event Take That Wonderland Live From The O2 with £1 million.

New at 6 is My Cousin Rachel while another event movie Peter Pan: NT Live 2017 is new at 11.

With Beauty and The Beast returning to the top 15 this week it becomes once again the top grossing movie with £72 million and the longest running film at 12 weeks.

The release of a new Tom Cruise film its bound to make some waves and The Mummy makes its debut at the top of the global box office this week with a $175 million opening.

Domestically (in America) the film has not gone down that well with a $32.2 million debut, but internationally the film has and takes $141.8 million, the film is opened in 64 countries this week.

Compared to previous Cruise movies this is a low take, the reviews have not been that favourable and it must be a bit worrying to Universal as this is supposed to be the first of a new universe of movies.

Wonder Woman slips to number 2 this week, still doing good business it takes $115.2 million from 58 countries which brings the Gal Gadot film to $435.2 million in global takings.

The film is still getting good word of mouth and it has really kicked the DC Universe into gear, it will be interesting to see for Justice League performs later this year.

The rest of the top 5 has Pirates of the Caribbean 5 at number 3 with $45 million, Baywatch at number 4 with $15 million and Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie at number 5 with $14 million.
