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.

Sam Raimi gives us a prequel to The Wizard of Oz, Jason Statham is in full action form again and Barbara Streisand mothers Seth Rogan at the box office this weekend.

In Oz The Great and Powerful Sam Raimi directs James Franco and Mila Kunis in a origins story for 1939's The Wizard of Oz.

Parker, based on the 9th book in the Flashfire series, has Jason Statham joined by Jennifer Lopez in this crime drama.

The guilt Trip has Barbara Streisand being the overbearing mother to Seth Rogan in this light hearted comedy.

Opening across the UK this weekend are The Wachowski's Cloud Atlas, Horror film Mama which is presented by respected director Guillermo del Toro and famed director Terrence Malick's latest To The Wonder.

Cloud Atlas is Andy and Lana Wachowski's return to film making after 5 years out of the game. Their most famous film to date is The Matrix from 1999. Their new film stars a host of Hollywood A-Listers including Tom Hanks and Halle Berry and is based on the surreal novel from David Mitchell, the story following characters spanning across decades of time.

Mama is a scare fest horror movie from director Andres Muschietti and is the story of 2 young girls who are found apparently living alone in the woods and brought back to live with a young couple, only to find their dead mother wants them back.

Finally Terrence Mallick releases his latest film To The Wonder that follows a young couple in love on their journey through life after a visit to Mont Saint-Michel.

Disney hit the right note this year with the hand drawn The Princess and the Frog, a time honored traditional story that went against the current form and used drawing rather than computers to animate. Disney have released a trailer for their next drawn animation called Tangled, but why the change of name from Repunzel?

Every one is familiar with the original story of a girl locked in a tower by her wicker step mother and her only outlet to the world is a prince who gets to her by climbing her amazingly long hair.

Now I can see where Disney is coming from with the name change, it must be a nightmare keeping so much hair from not getting in a bit of a knot, but were all familiar with the original title and the fairy tale why change it.

At the end of the day simple put Disney can change the title if they wish and check out the trailer below, it does look promising, and it goes without saying that it will be in 3D.
