At the UK box office this weekend the Kenneth Branagh directed live action version of Cinderella from Disney makes it's debut at the top.

Cinderella took a reasonable £3.8 million over the weekend to see it to number 1, in comparison to last years Maleficent also from Disney based on a much loved animation it half the debut gross.

The film should do well in the next couple of weeks as its the school Easter holidays, but with Home still on release and Spongebob also out there it has competition.

Home falls from the top to number 2 this week in it's second weekend of release, a £2.6 million Monday to Friday sees it's gross now stand at nearly £10 million.

Other new film hitting the box office chart this week are: The Spongebob Movie Sponge Out of Water which lands at 3 but should do well over the Easter break, Get Hard which lands at 4, Seventh Son which has a disappointing debut at 7 and Wild Tales which enters at 9.

Like a British institution the series of Harry Potter films are not letting up their grip on the UK box office, and the sixth film in the series was unstoppable in 2009, and despite a 6 month delay is the highest grossing film of the year with box office takings of £50,713,404.

With Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince crowned champ the runner up for the year is Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs with £34,872,218 which just about outdid the other big CG animated film of the year, Up, which came 3rd with a total gross of £34,284,193.

The multi award winning Slumdog Millionaire, which in the early part of the year was the top film, held up well and came 4th with £31,664,077, while the robots in disguise, Transformers, finished off the top 5 with £26,539,878.

The UK box office suffered a bit in the UK with the top 10 films taking a total of £287,929,402, comparing this to 2008's £340,360,259 it's far lower, in fact even 2007 had a better box office, 2006 was the last time it was this low.

Take a look at the full top 10 film for 2009.

When it was announced that a 4th Terminator film was being produced I was a little sceptical, after all the 3rd film wasn't all that good and I felt the franchise had run its natural course. Im not a big fan of Christian Bale and McG I can take or leave so the foundation didn't set me alight. Then the teaser trailer whet my appetite and now the latest trailer has got me really excited.

There was one moment at the very end of Terminator 3 that for me made the who film worthwhile and really made it slot into the whole terminator mythology, now with 4 it looks like the makers have taken the essence of the franchise, turned it on its head and produced something I hope will do the rest of the series justice and set the scene for the following 2 movies.

No sign from the trailer if Arnie is involved, although there are loads of robots and the T800 is to make an appearance, Will Arnies face be attached, time will tell. Christian bale looks set to be a good John Connor and thoes niggling gaps that have been in your head since you saw the first Terminator film may start to get answered.

Until then sit back enjoy this trailer
