In a week where not a lot has changed on the box office and the top 3 are the same headed up by Fast and Furious 8 the highest new entry is Their Finest at number 4.

Proving that the series is still well and truly alive Fast 8 takes £3.5 million on its second weekend of release, this is below the previous films second weekend.

The action drama is doing great guns in the UK and its total UK gross now sits at £23 million.

Highest new film of the week is Their Finest starring Gemma Arterton which makes its debut at number 4 with £0.8 million.

Also new this week is Unforgettable at number 7 which takes a very low £270,000 debut for star Katherine Heigl.

Longest running film of the week is Get Out which has been on the chart for 6 weeks now and highest total grossing film is Beauty and The Beast which is still at number 3 this week and has taken an incredible £68 million.

Historical charts

A year ago

Five years ago

Ten years ago

Fifteen years ago

Twenty years ago

Twenty five years ago
The Hand That Rocks The Cradle was the new film of the week making its debut at the top while Hook fell to number 2.

It's 35 years since Star Wars made it debut in the US, it opened in Manns Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles (and actually 31 other locations across America), and people queued around the block to see it.

The legacy of the original has been immense and still to this day the Star Wars series of 6 films is one of the highest grossing movie series of all time, behind only Harry Potter and James Bond.

1977 opening of Star Wars in LA

The franchise hit mass criticism and lost some of it's appeal after the 1999 release of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace which was to explain the back story of the popular villain Darth Vader, but all it really did was anger fans because it was frankly quite naff.

The disappointment of the new trilogy of films angered fans more because a few years previously Lucas had messed with the loved original trilogy adding new special effects and scenes, fans preferred the original theatrical release, especially the changed Jaba The Hut scene and the now infamous Gredo shoots first scene.

Despite all this Star Wars is alive and well, and in truth us fans still love the series, the new films got better as the series went on and we all hope and prey for the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special to be released on Blu-ray some time.

It's like it was 1991 again and there is a new Robin Hood film in production, this time it wont star an American with a fake British accent, it'll star an Australian with a fake British accent.

That Aussie will be Russell Crowe, and today USA Today has the first image of the man in his "Hood" gear, check out the image below.

The BBC currently has a TV series of Robin Hood running on Saturday night, it's now in it's 3rd series, I;m not a fan of the show but this could be what has ignited the reason for this film. Now don't get me wrong the film is being directed by Ridley Scott who is one of the best British directors alive and I usually love his movies, but the image of Robin Hood in the BBC promos is how I imagine Robin Hood to be.

The publicity still of Robin Hood looks more like someone caught Russell Crowe out on a Sunday afternoon taking the dog for a walk and he thought he would take a bow and arrow in case he saw some deer to shoot.

I'm not quite sure what different angle this film can have on the legend but I can tell you that I was more excited about Kevin Costner's Prince of Thieves back in 1991 than I am this.
