31st October 2017
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 .

6th November 2014
Despite it being Halloween new horror film Ouija could not make it's way to the top of the UK box office and instead the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles went back to the top in their third week of release.
Taking nearly £1.5 million for the weekend the Turtles have now spent 3 weeks on release and have taken a total of £11.7 million. The return of the Turtles for a new generation has been a massive success and has so far taken $434.5 million across the world.
Highest new film this week is Ouija which has taken £1.4 million, arguably because of the Halloween weekend and people looking for a fright, the film could disappear quite quickly.
Last weeks top film, Fury, falls to number 3 this week with £1.2 million. It was in reality a very tight top 3 this week with only about £200,000 separating the top films.
