No Angelina Jolie this time as the Tomb Raider franchise reboot gets its first poster.

Where as the first two movies from 2001/2003 had an air of old Lara Croft about them, this definitely has a Square Enix feel.

To explain Core Design developed the games until 2003 when Square Enix took over development.

The games reboot had a very different look and feel with a younger looking Lara, the new film starring Alicia Vikander has that, check out the poster below.

Spider-Man joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the first time in Spider-Man Homecoming and with the help of Iron Man tops the Uk box office.

The new re-boot (the third for the franchise) stars Tom Holland and reaches the top with a £9.3 million opening weekend.

In terms of previous Spider-Man films this is fairly standard with only Spider-Man 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man doing far better.

Despicable Me 3 falls to second place but still manages a £5 million weekend which brings the films total gross to nearly £20 million.

With the school summer holidays fast approaching expect this film to hang around for a while.

Yet gain The Boss Baby is the longest running film of the week with 14 weeks on total on the chart and it is also the highest total grossing film with £28 million.

The Player stayed at the top for a second weekend while the top new film was Sleepwalkers at number 2.

Last Friday saw the release of the fifth in the long running Pirates of The Caribbean series, and after some high grossing debuts number 5 comes in with a lower gross and less fan fare.

The film still managed a number one debut with its £5 million weekend gross but its the lowest opening weekend sing the original film Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of The Black Pearl.

The series is clearly loosing steam and after 5 films of questionable quality the tiring series needs to retire, going from an over £10 million debut of On Stranger Tides to £5 million for the latest is a warning sign to Disney.

Falling hard from number 1 this week, and fast becoming the flop of the summer is King Arthur Legend of The Sword which this week sits at number 5.

A second weekend take of just under £600 thousand is a massive 75% drop from last week, the total after 2 weeks is nearly £4 million.

Also new this week is Diary of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul at number 2, the series of films is a favourite with children and takes nearly £1.5 million on its debut.

The Red Turtle also makes its debut at number 9 with £91,000 on its opening weekend of release, although it is on a limited run.

Highest total grossing film and longest run on the box office is Beauty and The Beast, and incredible 11 week run has the film grossing just over £71 million pound.

Waynes World moved up to number one after its number 2 debut, in a switch around Basic Instinct fell from the top to number 2.

Directed by Guy Ritchie King Arthur Legend of the Sword makes its UK debut at the top of the box office, but its an unconvincing start to its box office run.

Taking £2.5 million from the weekend the film which had a massive budget and is set to start a new series of films was expected to smash its way into the box office from studio Warner Bros.

For the director this is below the debut of his top grossing films the Sherlock Holmes movies starring Robert Downey Jnr. which both debuted in the £3 million mark.

Falling into second place is Alien: Covenant which only just missed out on spending a second week at the top with a weekend gross of £2.1 million.

This brings the films total gross to £10 million, Prometheus at this point in its run was doing very similar business so expect this to end its run with a similar £20 million+.

Also new this week is Snatched starring Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn at number 4 with a debut of £842,000 and Colossal starring Anne Hathaway at number 9 with £150,000.

Marvel are a power house not to be messed with, although this weekend Warner Bros. though it would have a go and failed miserably and King Arthur Legend of The Sword couldn’t tough Guardians of The Galaxy at the global box office.

With $115.2 million from 57 countries this week Guardians easily retains its position as top film, this gross means that the film has gone past the half billion mark and has now taken $630.5 million after 3 weeks.

King Arthur did manage second place, although only just, with $43.8 million from 52 countries, but considering the amount of hype the film has had Warner would have been hoping for far more.

Released in 34 countries Alien Covenant marks its debut at number 3, the hotly anticipated film from Ridley Scott didn't get a US release but did make a show in much of Europe.

Nearly beating King Arthur the film takes $42 million for the week despite getting for less than favourable reviews from critics, its US release is this coming weekend which will be a big test.

There is a bit of a battle going on between Fast and Furious 8 and Beauty and The Beast for top film of the spring season and at the moment Beast is winning with $1.2 Billion total gross.

It was a weekend when everyone thought the big budget film King Arthur Legend of The Sword was going to dominate, Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 still took the crown and comedy Snatched come in highest on Mothers Day weekend.

Its the second weekend of release for Chris Pratt and director James Gunn and Guardians easily holds on to the top spot with a massive $63 million, 57% drop from last weeks debut.

This brings the films total gross from 10 day in cinemas to $246.1 million, its inline with other big Marvel films and well ahead if the first Guardians film.

Highest new film honour goes to Snatched starring Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn about a mother and daughter who get kidnapped in a foreign country, good timing to release on Mothers Day.

The film makes its debut in second place with a weekend gross of $17.5 million, although with mediocre reviews we could see this slip away quickly.

Directed by Guy Ritchie and with a massive $200 million+ budget the studio were hoping for a mega hit on their hands, but King Arthur Legend of The Sword has limed into US cinema in third with $14.7 million.

Beauty and the Beast is once again the longest running film on the US box office, 9 weeks now, and its the highest total grossing movie with nearly half a billion pound in takings.

King Arthur Legend of the Sword second trailer.

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens is the top selling home video in the UK during 2016 followed by the Bond film Spectre.

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens was a massive hit at the UK box office during the latter part of 2015 and is the highest grossing movie of 2016, despite being released in 2015! On the same note Spectre was a massive hit at the UK box office in 2015, in fact it was the highest grossing movie of 2015.

Surprise hit Deadpool is the third best selling movie of 2016 with the independent film Legend based on the story of the Krays being the fourth.

Finishing off the top 5 is The Lady in The Van, based on the life of writer Alan Bennett and starring Maggie Smith the film was a big hit at the UK box office although not across the globe.

Here is the top 10 best selling home videos of 2016 in the UK.

  1. Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens
  2. Spectre
  3. Deadpool
  4. Legend
  5. The Lady in The Van

There have been many film adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs creation Tarzan and this week the latest version enters at the top of the home video chart in the UK.

This version was released in cinemas on 8th July 2016 where it entered at number 2, beaten by The Secret Life of Pets on its 3rd week at the top.

The Legend of Tarzan took £3.5 million on its opening weekend and spent 5 weeks on the UK top 15, it then spent another 7 weeks in Uk cinemas before disappearing.

During that time it took a non too shabby £9.2 million, also the film didn't do too bad on the global stage taking £356.6 million.

Last weeks top film, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Out of The Shadows, falls quite hard down to number 5 this week after a single week at the top.

Also making its debut on the chart this week is: Supersonic at number 2 and Central Intelligence at number 3.

Also making a re-entry at number 4 thanks to a new version of the Blu-ray is Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

There was never going to be any other outcome this weekend as the countries favourite unlucky in love and life Bridget Jones returns to our screens after 12 years away.

Bridget Jones's baby flies into the top on its debut weekend after a fairly aggressive marketing push and the best September weekend ever.

An £8.1 million debut took the film to the top of the box office which is highest than the first film in the series but a couple of million why of the follow up.

With the holiday season coming up and good work of mouth and reviews this could give the film a good run although the other 2 film came in at over £35 million and over £40 million which could be a tough ask.

Sausage party falls to number 4 this week after 2 weeks at the top, a £0.6 million weekend gross brings the total UK takings to £6.6 million.

For the first time in a while only one film on the box office takes over a million pound, although with Jones's gross the box office is on a fairly even total gross to other weeks.

Highest total grossing film of the week is Finding Dory, now on over £40 million, and longest run is The BFG, now around for 8 week.

This week saw the release of a new Star Trek movie at the global box office and as with all the others in the ‘new' universe created by JJ Abrahams it is the top film globally.

Its a softer debut than Star Trek or sci-fi is used to despite good reviews and seemingly a better film then the last one but a $89.6 million debut from 38 countries is strong enough to see it dominate.

The legend of Tarzan is at 2 this week and is getting stronger across the globe as it has a staggered release, its not performing in the US but it is globally.

The film took $51 million from 62 countries for a total global gross of $260 million to date.

A change at the top of the world box office charts has the Ghostbusters reboot taking over from The Secret Life of Pets.

On its debut week of release the 2016 Ghostbusters reboot takes $65.1 million dollars from just 4 countries.

An excellent result for the female led Ghostbusters movie, although good reviews have helped and the marketing push to banish the negativity has certainly helped.

Highest total grossing film on the global box office this week is Finding Dory, the Disney/Pixar movie has to date grossed $721.7 million.

The film now has a global gross of $145,772,440 but has many more territories to open in so expect that to climb.

Finding Dory is holding strong at number 2 with $50 million this week, its global gross has risen to 624.1 million from 41 countries, it is also the highest total grossing movie on the top 10.

China is one of the largest cinema going countries in the world and this week from its release in a single territory - China - Cold War 2 takes an amazing $44 million and is at number 4 this week.

This weekend the Sasha Baron Cohen movie Grimsby makes its home video debut a the top of the chart knocking off Deadpool after 2 weeks.

Grimsby was released at the UK box office on 26th February 2016 after a massive marketing campaign it made its debut at number 2.<> The film was not received that well with critics or the public alike and it only managed a 4 week run on the UK box office, but did manage another 8 weeks in cinemas before it ended its run.

Its UK box office gross was £5.2 million which isn't too bad and is fairly typical of a british box office comedy thats not a gigantic hit.

Falling to number 2 this week is the fan favourite Marvel superhero that Disney turned down Deadpool.

The film has had a great run at the top of the video chart and will most likely hang around for quite a while and get another boost when shops discount the film.

Also new this week is Zoolander No 2, the sequel everyone wanted, then no one wanted at number 5, direct to video Underworld Legend of The Jinn at 17 and Secret In Their Eyes at 18.

The American box office saw a massive boost this week with The Secret Life of Pets making its debut on the box office with over 100 million.

To put this in context. most Pixar films have massive opening weekend and this beat last year Inside Out which took 90 million on its debut.

The actual figure is $103 million which put it in the top 20 of the highest debut weekend of all time in America.

The film has had mediocre reviews but this doesn't seem to have harmed the debut at all, and with not much competition except the ageing Finding Dory.

Falling from the top is Finding Dory which falls to 3 this week, The LEgend of Tarzan just about holding on at 2.

Dory has now grossed $422 million in American with a $20 million take this last weekend, the film is still to be released in many other countries.

Also new this week is Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates which lands at 4 with a $16 million debut weekend.

Despite a number of new releases this week Finding Dory still manages to dominate the global box office now after 3 weeks of release.

Dory this week grossed $76.3 million globally, now released in 41 countries, this brings its total gross now over the half billion mark to $538.2 million.

There are still many countries where the film has not had a release so the film making it to billion mark is probably at this stage a certainty.

Highest new film of the week is The Legend of Tarzan which shows up in 20 countries and has a debut gross of $56.9 million.

The week had a number of new releases but with the good weather and holidays throughout the world nothing managed to capture the market, or maybe it was the lack of summer blockbuster? The rest of the new releases are as follows: The Purge Election Years at 5, The BFG at 8, Ice Age Collision Course at 9, although it must be said that these film all had single digit country release and are no where near saturation yet.

Here is the top 5 global box office for this week.

  1. Finding Dory - $76,300,542
  2. The Legend Of Tarzan - $56,935,000
  3. Independence Day Resurgence - $56,700,000
  4. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Out Of The Shadows - $31,265,000
  5. The Purge Election Year - $30,997,840
It's the weekend of Independence Day in America which has historically been a strong weekend o#for new releases as people often have a longer weekend, but this year seems reletively week.

Heading the chart for a third weekend is Disney and Pixars Finding Dory which adds another $41 million to its now impressive total.

That total in America is $372.2 million and the film is proving to be another runnaway hit for Pixar and Disney, Diney dont seem to be able to hit a duff note at the moment!

Hihgest new film of hte week lands at number 2, The Legend of Tarzan, which looking at all the promo material is more about monkeys than tarzan, not suprising with the success of the recent Apes movies.

Tarzan debuts with a weekend gross of $38.1 million, a sign of a weaker debut showing than would normally be expected over the long weekend.

Also new this week are The Purge: Election Year which debuts at number 3 and surisingly, and from Disney is Spielbergs The BFG which debuts at number 4 with less than $20 million.

Highest total grossing film on the US chart this week, and by a massive margin is Finding Dory, longest runners are The Conjuring 2 The Enfield Project and Now You See Me 2 both on 4 weeks.

Taking over at the top of the UK video chart is the Ridley Scott directed book adaptation The Martian starring Matt Damon.

The Martian was released to great reviews on 2nd October 2015 where it entered the UK box office at number 1 where it stayed for a couple of weeks.

It spent a respectable 8 weeks on the box office top 15 an slipped out of the charts at the very beginning of this year where is spent a couple of extra weeks.

The film is the 136th highest grossing film in the UK having make a total gross of £23.5 million and it is the 104th highest grossing film in the world with a total gross of $598.8 million.

A 6 week cinema run saw the film take a UK gross of £8.6 million in the UK, worldwide the film managed $312.3 million making it the 331st highest grossing world wide move, in the US it took $81 million.

Also new this week is: Sicario at number 3, Macbeth at number 4, Miss You Already at number 7 and The Walk at number 8.

JJ Abrams continuation of the Star Wars saga this week completely dominated the world box office in every country it was released in.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens took on its opening weekend $517 million, the highest opening gross ever beating this years Jurassic World by a comfortable margin.

It took the current highest grossing movie Avatar 11 days to get to this figure, and with the massively positive reviews the Star Wars film has had its possible that it could become the higerst grossing film in time.

Last weeks top film across the world, The Hunger Games: Mockinjay Part 2, falls to number 6 this week, although it did spend 4 weeks at the top.

A surprisingly active chart for new releases also sees Mojin The Lost Legend new at 2, Sisters new at 4 and Alvin and The Chipmunks The Road Chip new at 5.

This week British produced film [Spooks] The Greater Good makes its home video debut at the top of the chart.

The film was released at UK cinemas on 8th May 2015 where it debuted at number 2, behind Avengers Age of Ultron, with a debut gross of just over £1 million.

A small 4 week run on the official top 15 was a small part of its cinema total with it spending a further 8 weeks bouncing around the underbelly of the chart.

After 12 weeks in cinemas it managed a total UK gross of £3.2 million, the film didn't make an impact on the world box office scene.

Pitch Perfect 2 falls from the top where it made its debut into third place.

One of the more interesting lists is that of the most pirated movies of the year.

2014 is the year where The Wolf of Wall Street has been pirate downloaded more than any other.

With Frozen at number two, both films selling really well on home video it does beg the question about piracy ruining sales!

  1. The Wolf of Wall Street: 30.035 million downloads
  2. Frozen: 29.919 million downloads
  3. Gravity: 29.357 million downloads

No change at the top this week with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies staying for it's second week of release, it's weekend gross of £5.4 million is down 55.6% on last weeks.

The latest, and last, film in the series is running at the same rate of gross as the previous film, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, but behind The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

Paddington stays at two this week and highest new film is in at three, Night At The Museum: Secret of the Tomb, grossing this week £1.8 million.

Also new this week is Dumb and Dumber To which enters at four, Indian film P K which is new at seven.

Historical Charts:

A Year ago
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug stayed at the top of the chart with Anchorman 2 The Legend Continues entering at number two.

Five years ago
Avatar made it's debut at the top of the box office knocking A Christmas Carol off the top down to number three.

Ten years ago
Lemony Snickets A Series of Unfortunate Events was the new film entering at the top with last weeks top film Blade Trinity falling right down to fourth.

Fifteen years ago
It was still The World is Not Enough at the top refusing to shift while Inspector Gadget came in at number two as the highest new film.

The Hobbit series of movies has never quite been the box office kings that The Lord of the Rings Series was, but The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies this week flies in as the top film of the weekend.

Taking a very respectable £9.8 million the third and last film in The Hobbit, and The Middle Earth saga manages to beat everything else with ease, and it also beats the second of The Hobbit films but not the first.

The new number one film takes over from last weeks top film Paddington which falls a single place after two weeks at the top, it's total gross so far is £14.3 million.

Also new this week is Tinker Bell and The Legend of The Neverbeast at 7.

Historical box office

A year ago
New at the top was The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug on it's debut weekend, it knocked Disneys Frozen from the top.

Five years ago
A Christmas Carol went back up to the top after four week bouncing around the top three, it knocked off Paranormal Activity.

Ten years ago
Blade flew in at the top of the box office and knocked The Incredibles down to the runner up spot.

Fifteen years ago
The World Is Not Enough spent it's third week at the top of the box office while Arnie starred in End of Days which was the highest new film at two.

All change at the top of the UK video chart this week with 2 big new entries going in at 1 and 2 in the run up to the big Christmas selling season.

The Winner was Mrs. Brown's Boys D'Movie which takes over from Maleficent as the top selling DVD/Blu-ray of the week.

Mrs Brown was released at cinemas on 27th June to much anticipation and hit the top spot on it's opening weekend with a gross of £4.3 million.

It hung around the box office for 6 weeks raking in a quite respectable £14.5 million in the process, a good amount for a low budget movie.

It currently sits at the 289th highest grossing movie in the UK, across the world it didn't get a release date which isn't much of a surprise as it's very my a British phenomenon.

Also doing well is the 2014 version of the Godzilla legend which lands at number 2 this week, a number 1 film from mid May which grossed £17 million at ht box office.

The only other new film this week is the direct to DVD film Adventurer The Curse of The Midas Box.

Selling well on DVD and Blu-ray this week, Rio 2 makes it's debut on the home entertainment chart at the top, removing The Lego Movie after it's spell as the top seller.

Rio 2 hit the UK box office during the Easter holidays this year making it's debut on the chart for April 4th, it debuted at the top with a opening weekend gross of £2.8 million.

Over a fantastic 12 week run at the UK box office it went on to a total gross of £15 million and is the 266th top grossing film ever in the UK.

On the world stage it has made $473 million making it the 135th top film ever. Compared to the first Rio film it outperformed it but only just.

With Rio 2 at the top and The Logo Movie at 2, Noah falls to 3 this week and Frozen holds steady at number 4.

Other new film on video this week
The Legend of Hercules at 5
Starred Up at 6

The ever busy Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) is back on the big screen this weekend with the action film Hercules, based on the story of the Greek God and son of Zeus.

Probably not sticking to the legend too closely this is an all out action film that should do well at the UK box office, probably wont have the power to interrupt Apes or Transformers but a healthy top 3 might be in order.

Earth to Echo is the story of a small alien robot that comes to earth and is found by a trio of boys, the rest is predicable and their lives will change forever.

This is aimed squarely at the kids, but with the fantastic weather currently being experienced in the UK this could just get a top 5 entry.

Other new films this week
The Purge: Anarchy
Joe
The House of Magic
Believe

Frozen releases its grip on the Blu-ray/DVD charts this week to allow Anchorman 2 The Legend Continues to enter the chart at the top on its debut week of release.

Anchorman 2 which stars Will Farrell was, after much hype, released at the box office on 20th December last year, not performing as well as expected the film entered the box office at 2, behind The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, with a £4.5 million weekend gross. It spent 5 weeks on the chart taking £14 million in UK grosses.

Last week's top film, Frozen, falls just a single place to 2 this week.

American Hustle (3)
Mandela Long Walk to Freedom (5)
All Is Lost (11)

This week Disney had a double dip on the UK box office with Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Muppets Most Wanted hitting at one and two.

Captain America, the latest from the Marvel Avengers (Avengers Assemble as it's called in the UK) universe of films, was by far and away the better grossing film taking £6 million. The film is a sequel to 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger which took £3 million on it's July debut.

Muppets Most Wanted is the follow up to 2012 The Muppets. That film took £2.6 million on it's debut, this one took a very similar £2.2 million.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Muppets Most Wanted
The Legend of Hercules
The Past
20 Feet From Stardom

This time last year The Croods held onto the top spot holding off G.I. Joe: Retaliation which entered at two.

Five years ago Nicolas Cage starred in the number one films Knowing which also debuted there nocking Marley and Me to number two.

Ten years ago The Passion of Christ stayed at the top keeping Dawn of the Dead at bay debuting at number two.

Fifteen years ago The Rugrats Movie took the number one spot on it's debut knocking Waking Ned Devine down to three with Payback entering at two.

Continuing a year of superhero movies doing well at the box office, the much loved character of The Wolverine in his 5th film takes over at the top in the UK from Monsters University.

Hugh Jackman one again plays Wolverine in the tale set in modern day Japan, based on one of the best comic strip Wolverine stories. The Wolverine opens to £4.6 million which is lower than the previous stand alone Wolverine film which did £6.6 million.

Monsters University falls from the top this week after 3 weeks to number 2.

This time last year The Dark Knight Rises was still the top film with another fantastic week at the UK taking £7.2 million. The Lorax was the top new film, at 2 with £1.8 million.

Ten years ago The Hulk was still the top film with £1.3 million and animated tale Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas was the top new film with £800,000.

Fifteen years ago Godzilla was still the top film with £2.1 million and with a fairly static top 5 the highest new entry of the week was The Gingerbread Man at 7 with £171,120.

In some of the best casting news in a while (well since the last Harrison Ford casting news) the Star Wars actor has signed on to play Ron Burgundy's rival in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.

Ford who also recently committed to the next Star Wars film, that Episode VII, will star alongside Will Farrell, Steve Carell and Paul Rudd will play the main rival. The cast is building up now with John C. Reilly, James Marsden and Krisina Wiig also on board.

The sequel is out at the end of the year with original director Adam McKay back at the helm.

Middle Earths 4 week dominance of the Box Office ends this week with Les Misérables takes over at the top knocking The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey down to fourth.

Ang Lee's Life of Pi holds firm as the number 2 film and Gangster Squad is a new entry at 3.

The Tom Hooper directed film, based on the stage play musical, debuts at the top with a brilliant £8.1 million pound weekend gross. The highest debut for all involved except Anne Hathaway who scored a bigger opening weekend with last years The Dark Knight Rises.

Life of Pi continues to do well as the awards start to pile in and increases it's total gross to £21.9 million while Gangster Squad is new at 4 with an opening weekend of £2.1 million.

This time last year Spielberg was hitting number 1 with War Horse on it's debut weekend taking nearly £4 million and knocking The Iron Lady from the top.

Five years ago I Am Legend was still doing good numbers at the top with £2 million after 3 weeks while Charlie Wilson's War with Tom Hanks was the highest new film at 3.

Ten years ago The Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers still dominated the Uk box office and Martin Scorsese had the top new film with Gangs of New York at 2.

Fifteen years ago The Jackal with Bruce Willis was at the top on it's debut weekend with a gross of £1.4 million. Twenty years ago Bram Stokers Dracula from Francis Ford Coppola was hitting the top spot on it's opening knocking The Bodyguard into the runner up spot.

2004's Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy has gained a large following since it's release, and with that pressure there was bound to be a sequel, well next year we get our wish.

Check out the teaser below, all the cast are back on board, and it looks like there will be some humour in there too.

Neil Burger takes his film Limitless to the top of the UK box office this week during its first weekend of release beating A Turtles Tale and The Eagle.

Grossing a crowd pleasing £2 million during its first weekend Limitless stars The Hangovers Bradley Cooper and legend Robert De Niro in a thriller about a man who takes a drug allowing him to use 100% of his brain.

Animated tale, A Turtles Tale is at two this week, debuting with a gross of £1.1 million the film, in 3D, stars the voice of Melanie Griffith.

New at three is The Eagle, Kevin Macdonald 300 style action thriller set in 140 AD. Staring Channing Tatum the film debuts with just over a million at the box office.

Rango takes a hard fall this week to 4 with a gross of £670,992 bringing it's total to £5,892,274, and Liam Neesons Unknown falls to 5 this week with £477,531 taking it's gross to £5,366,574. This weeks chart was down on this time last year when the Nanny McPhee sequel topped the chart in its debut week and high grossers Alice in Wonderland and Avatar were starting to slip out of the cinemas.

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.

Tonight I attended the UK premiere of the new Star Trek movie at the Empire Leicester Square on the heart of the West End in London, and what a night it was.

Although there was a wait of over an hour once I took my seat in the theatre and got chatting to a very nice couple sitting behind me, the wait was well worth it as JJ. Abrams and the full cast of the movie came in to introduce the film.

Simon Pegg who plays Scotty in the movie came in dressed in a kilt and took the mike to give a speach to his fellow Brits on how honored he was to be in the movie.

As for the film itself, WOW, what a film, action from start to finish, this is what so many other Star Trek movies have lacked in the past but this film piles on the action right from the word go.

Despite enjoying this film to the full I do still have some reservations, the story, although good and honour the Star Trek 40 year legacy it does take some liberties, the opening is really well done and I think true Trek Fans will love it, but, and I hope this isn't too much of a spoiler, the time travel aspect of the film can be a little difficult to swallow.

I don't think I'm giving too much away by saying that original Spock Leonard Nimoy make an extended cameo in the film, but after the initial appearance I found his presence a little uncomfortable, and the final scene in the film although fascinating I found a little odd.

That said the new cast a just superb and Abrams has stayed true to the legend while giving non hard core fans enough reasons to go, there are some in joke which the true fans will roll around on the floor at, but they are well placed and are additions to the film and don't drive it.

Lets hope this film can reignite the series and in 4 or 5 films time we can explore the origins of The Next Generation crew.
