Another week and another film debut's at the top of the UK video chart, this week we have the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in the remake/reboot film from last year debut at number 1.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was released at the UK box office on 17th October 2014 and took the number 1 spot on it's weekend of release.

It's debut gross was £4.8 million and over a 6 week box office chart run it gross a very respectable £13.8 million which makes it the 312th highest grossing film in the UK.

Globally the film did very well, in the US it took $273 million and globally it took $464 million making it the 147th highest grossing film ever.

Last weeks top film, Dracula Untold slips a single place to 2 this week.

Also new to the UK video chart is: The Book of Life at 4, The Babadook at number 6, Dolphin Tale 2 at number 9 and Alexander and The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day at 15.

At the US box office this week David Finchers Gone Girl retains it's position at the top despite some heavy competition from Dracula Untold.

On it's second week of release Gone Girl takes $26.8 million in box office takings to give it a 10 day, 2 weekend, total gross of $78.3 million.

Dracula Untold made a good attempt at beating it but it only managed to enter the box office at 2 this week after taking $23.5 million in box office takings.

Other new film on the American box office are
Alexander and The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day which enters at 3 with $19.1 million.
The Judge which surprisingly for a Robert Downey Jr. film enters at 5 with $13.3 million.
Addicted which enters at 7 with $7.6 million.
Meet the Mormons entering at 11 with $2.9 million.

A single week at the top was all Bruce Willis could manage as Wreck-It Ralph jumps back to the top with a strong weekend after the school half term.

3 weeks of release and Disney recapture the top spot with their video game inspired film. A weekend gross of £3,420,196 takes it's total to £18,624,692 making another big hit for the House of Mouse.

A Good Day to Die Hard only slipped to second place which made the highest new film of the week land at 3, horror spookfest Mama took £1.5 million for the weekend.

This time last year another spooky horror film was still at number 1, The Woman in Black was spending it's 3rd week at the top with £2.4 million. Highest new films was Denzel Washington in Safe House with £2.1 million.

Five years ago Jumper was holding the top spot while whacky comedy starring Jack Black and Mos Def Be Kind Rewind was the highest new film at 2.

Ten years ago it was yet another scary horror film, the US remake of The Ring, which debuted in the top spot with £2.2 million.

And fifteen years ago Titanic was continuing it's record breaking surge at the top of the box office, 5 weeks in, still the top film and £34.1 million in the bank.

The Die Hard series continues to pull in audiences 25 years after the original film hit cinemas.

Bruce Willis, the undisputed star of the series, plays John Mclain again, the New York cop who seems to always find him self in difficult situations with guns! A Good Day to Die Hard is the highest new film and the new number one film with an opening gross of £4.5 million.

Other new films this week are This is 40 at 3, Beautiful Creatures at 5 and Sammy Great Escape, a sequel to 2010's A Turtles Tale, is new at 8.

Ten years ago Hugh Grant was able to hang onto the top spot in Two Weeks Notice keeping Daredevil from the top which was the highest new film at 2.

4 new films hit UK cinemas today, fantasy Beautiful Creatures, Bruce Willis's return to Die Hard in A Good Day to Die Hard, comedy sequel This is 40 and drama For Ellen.

Beautiful Creatures is a fantasy film set around family ties and the dark forces, think Romeo and Juliette with witches! Starring Alden Ehrenreich and Alice Englert.

A Good Day to Die Hard is the fifth Die Hard film, once again having Bruce Willis's New York cop suffering from fish out of water scenario, this time in Russia.

This is 40 is a companion film to director Judd Apatows Knocked Up, this time Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann take the lead as the couple with children hitting the age of 40.

For Ellen is the drama of a musicians fight for his daughter from his estranged wife.

Die Hard actor Bruce Willis was on BBC's The One Show on Wednesday promoting his new Die Hard film, A Good Day to Die Hard, and when asked said he would do a sixth film.

Throughout Willis appeared very awkward and the BBC received complaints about his conduct, personally I think he just came across as very tired, jet lagged, and was struggling to think straight, he came across as very charming.

Despite not being that chatty, and not really giving away a great deal about anything, when female presenter Alex Jones asked if he would do a sixth film he simply replied yes, like were all surprised at that.

Willis will have to win round the studio mind after basically admitting that he didn't like the title of the new movie, claiming it was confusing, A Good Day to Die Hard, it's never a good day to die, what do you do, go and do some shopping and have some tea before you Die, Hard?

The titles of the Die Hard films have never follow the conventional 1, 2, 3 etc moniker although the fourth film was Die Hard 4.0 (except in the US where is was Live Free ot Die Hard) so a sixth film could be Six degrees of Die Hard or something!

The new film is set in Russia and has protagonist John McClain traveling the globe to rescue his son who is in some kind of trouble with the Russian mafia, it is out on Valentines Day.

We are on the dawn on the fifth Die Hard film to be released and Fox have now released a new trailer, with action, drama and Bruce Willis.

The original Die Hard movie is still to this day one of my favourite films, and I always try to get a watch over Christmas (it is the ultimate Christmas movie after all). Here we are 25 years after that release and 5 is with us nearly, do we need a fifth entry?

Maybe a discussion for another day, enjoy the trailer for A Good Day To Die Hard.

Today marks, for some, a sad day in home entertainment, Pioneer have announced that they will stop making laserdisk players this month.

Initially brought to market in 1978 under the name of Discovision the 12 inch disks were going to revolutionise home entertainment and bring that cinema quality high definition picture to the home.

Although the technology inside the huge players was far superior to that of it's magnetic tape (VHS and Beta) equivalents the lack of storage (60 minutes on each side) and high price stopped them from becoming a mainstream purchase.

American video enthusiasts took to the devices as did the Japanese, but Europe never really embraced the devices. VHS had a strong hold, and by the time people realised that their £15 film on the fragile tape was a bad idea and looked for alternatives the 5 inch DVD was hitting the market.

Despite it's hard life the format has laser 30 years and sold a quite respectable 360 million units. Disks didn't shift that many, Star Wars was one of the biggest sellers with 100,000 sold and The Lion King not far behind, although exact sales data is hard to find.
