New trailer for Kingsman The Golden Circle, plenty of action but is it starting to get a bit generic? All the main cast are present, Colin Firth, Julianne More, Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Halle Berry and Channing Tatum.

Check out the trailer below.

Kingsman The Secret Service, directed by Matthew Vaughn and starring Colin Firth, takes over at the top of the UK video chart this week on it's debut week of sales.

Kingsman The Secret Service was released in the UK on 30th January of 2015 where it entered the UK box office at number 2, heated to the top by Big Hero 6.

The film spent a successful 9 weeks on the official top 15, but was still floating around in some cinemas a couple of weeks ago and hence still taking box office grosses.

To date the film has grossed £16.5 million in the UK making it the 247th highest grossing film, wordwide it has grossed $403.3 million making it the 197th top grossing film worldwide.

Last weeks top film, American Sniper, falls just a single place this week to number 2.

Also new on the UK video charts this week are: Kajaki at number 7, controversial The Interview at number 8, Mortdecai at number 9 and Vice, starring Bruce Willis at number 19.

The summer movie season is over now and it's the long slide to Christmas now. To start off the Autumn schedule we have Sex Tape, Before I go to Sleep and Life of Crime hitting cinemas this weekend.

Sex Tape stars Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel as a married couple who film a night of sex which then “accidentally” gets put online.

Fair reviews and few other rom coms out at the moment will see this get a high entry, and with Diaz and Segel both likeable stars this could even hit number one on a quiet weekend.

Before I go to Sleep is directed by the acclaimed Rowan Joffe and stars Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth with support from Mark Strong.

With an excellent pedigree the hard hitting drama should see itself enter in the top 5, maybe as high as 3.

Adapted from a Elmore Leonard book Life of Crime has it's work cut out for it as he's one hard author to adapt for the screen.

A strong acting pedigree in the shape of Jennifer Aniston, Isla Fisher and Tim Robbins should boost the films appeal and could see it just about get into the top 5.

Let us know your thoughts below and if you agree with me and come back next week to see how the box office shapes up.

No strong releases this week gives Disneys mega hit Frozen the chance to go back to the top of the Blu-ray/DVD chart.

Frozen has been around now for 5 weeks and this is the third time it has been the top selling video of the week, Disney's highest grossing movie of all time is fast becoming their biggest selling video of all time.

Best selling new film of the week is The Railway Man starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman. The film was released into UK cinemas on 10th January this year. A small hit it reached a height of number 6 on it't debut and hung around for 4 weeks making £4.6 million pounds during it's run.

Also new this week are,
Gallowwalkers starring Wesley Snipes

Despite rumblings from many a commentator about maybe Colin Firth not getting an Oscar, or Natalie Portman being piped at the post by Annette Benning, in the end the Oscar evening went as predictably as you could imagine with just about everyone predicting all the major winners.

Colin Firth and Natalie Portman got their statues, while Christian Bale and Melissa Leo (both for The Fighter) got awarded. Maybe the most unpredictable award for the night was best film and director, most thought that The Social Network and its director David Fincher might clinch it, but The Kings Speech and director Tom Hooper took home the glory.

Toy Story 3 deservedly gained the best animated feature Oscar and in maybe a surprise move Banks diod not get the best documentary Oscar, so no stunt appearance, instead that went to Inside Job, a film from director Charles Ferguson about the financial crisis of 2008.

In all I suppose it was a predictable night, but one where all the Oscars went to deserved winners, something which rarely happens. The awards season is now over, a season which I used to get very excited about, and although I still look at the winners with interest I don't get nearly as excited as I did 10 years ago, maybe Oscar is no longer relevant?

Last weekend the Colin Firth and Helena Bonham Carter starrer The Kings Speech tool the top spot at the box office with a gross of £3,523,102 over Friday – Sunday.

The film directed by Tom Hooper and also starring Geoffrey Rush has already won multiple awards and is being tipped for many more during the busy January/February awards season and Oscar glory is expected.

Also new this week is Oscar winner Danny Boyle's new film 127 Hours. A true story of a climber who gets stuck in a craves by a bolder lodging his arm stars James Franco in an almost solo performance, and again is tipped for award glory this season. 127 Hours takes £ 2,168,570 this week.

Falling from is festive position at the top, Little Fockers falls to 3rd place this week with £ 1,798,677 bringing it's total gross in the UK to £ 15,282,292.

Jack Blacks Gulliver's Travels falls to 4th this week, taking £ 1,554,266 and bringing it's total gross to £ 10,881,583.

Last new entry in the top five this week is Russell Crowe starring in The Next Three Days, a disappointing opening for the film, although it still managed to take over a million for the weekend with £1,046,333. This years top 5, although good is down on last years top 5 where Avatar was still taking incredible weekend grosses as was the runner up film Sherlock Holmes.

Jack Black scores the first top film of the year in the re-telling of the giant movie Gulliver's travels.

Supported by a cast of many British actors including the likes of Billy Connelly, Catherine Tate and James Cordon, the giant movie takes in an excellent £7,028,747 over the New Year period, no doubt helped by the mega press that Jack Black and other members of the cast have done on British TV.

Black has had a mixed bag of success in the UK with his last film, Year One, bombing with £2,776,236, but then he's had hits like King Kong which took £26,080,026 in the UK, so Gulliver's Travels will rank among his higher grossing movies.

Falling to second this week is The Little Fockers with £2,614,802 bringing it to £11,159,635 over a ten day period.

New at 3 is Jake Gyllenhaal in a film directed by Edward Zwick, Love and Other Drugs takes £1,606,253 over the weekend.

New at 4 Peter Weir directs Colin Farrell and Jim Sturgess in The Way Back to the tune of £1,327,650 and falling And finally in the top 5 falling is The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of The Dawn Treader which takes £1,207,264 which brings it total gross now to £11,263,418 which is the lowest of all the Narnia films. This week the top 7 films all took over a million pound each in box office takings, very good compared to last week when only the top film took over a million, and better than last year when only the top 4 took over a million.

It's the time of year again when the Oscar hype machine will go into overdrive in the period between the nominations being announced and the ceremony itself.

This year there are two films which are ahead of the rest, and two films which are total contrasts in style. James Cameron has continued to astound everyone by getting a nomination for best picture and best director, and his film Avatar has managed nine nomination in total with the others being in the technical department.

Kathryn Bigelow's (who happens to be Camerons ex-wife) The Hurt Locker has also managed nine nominations, best picture and best director being two of then, the picture has also got a nomination for it's star Jeremy Renner as a leading actor.

The best picture category this year include 10 films (is that too many) so we have the likes of The Blind Side and Inglourious Basterds along side British hopeful An Education as well as South African sci-fi film District 9, and a first in that Up is nominated for best film and best animated film.

Best film and director is going to be a battle between Cameron and Bigelow, but the rest of the awards are an open field, so lets wait and see what heppens on March 7th at the 82nd Academy Awards Ceremony.

Today (Thursday 21st January) BAFTA, the British Film Association awards, has announced it's nominations for the awards ceremony taking place in London on 21st February.

The all important best film of the year award is a race between Avatar, An Education, The Hurt Locker, Precious and Up In The Air and An Education also appears in the nomination for best British film along with Fish Tank, In The loop, Moon and Nowhere Boy.

Like the Golden Globe Awards the BAFTA's are seen as a pre-curser to the Oscars and in the directing category I can see the list being very similar as James Cameron (Avatar), Neill Blomkamp (District 9), Lone Scherfig (An Education), Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker) and Quentin Tarantino (Inglourious Basterds) all get nods, it's good to see Neill Blomkamp in there.

The best actor and actress categories are similar to the expectation for the Oscars as well with Jeff bridges who just won the Golden Globe leading the field for the men with George Clooney, Colin Firth, Jeremy Renner and Any Sirkis all getting a mention. The actress category is led by Carey Mulligan along with Saoirse Ronan, Gabourey Sidibe and of course Meryl Streep.

We'll find out in a months time who walks away with the awards in a ceremony hosted by TV favourite Jonathan Ross.

For a full list of nomination check out the BAFTA website.
