Historical Charts:

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.

From Disney/Marvel is the the plot synopsis for Avengers Age of Ultron which is released in the UK on 25th April 2015.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Marvel Studios presents "Avengers: Age of Ultron," the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth's Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.

With only a single week as the top selling disk in the country Frozen surrenders the crown to another Christmas blockbuster in the shape of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

The second in the Hobbit trilogy from Peter Jackson was released at cinemas on December 8th last year. it Debuted at number 1 where it stayed for 3 weeks, it was around for 8 week and made a collective UK gross of £42.6 million.

Although the film didn't perform as well as the previous film, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, it was still a huge hit, it is currently the 33rd highest grossing film in the UK and the 23rd in the world having grossed nearly $950 million.

Frozen falls to second place this week despite it being the Easter Holidays, although the sales figures were still very high.

There were no other new releases this week.

This week The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey nudges it's way past the $1 Billion world box office taking mark making it 15th film that has made it past the milestone.

This is an interesting group of films but the group is becoming less and less elite as time goes on, like the magic $100 million mark of time past.

The first film to manage the feat was Titanic back in 1998, and it held the record as the only film to have done it until 2003 when The Return of the King managed it. Since then, and with the introduction of 3D where you are charged more for your ticket, we have had 13 other films make the grade.

Of the 15, 8 had a 3D releases as well as a 2D release, 4 were released in 2012, 2 have made over $2 Billion, 1 made it over the billion mark after it's 3D re-release last year, Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, and 1 was released in about 6 different formats.

The $1 Billion club is bound to grow and grow so chart watchers are now looking for the next flurry of films to make over $2 Billion, a hard task of which only 1 film has truly made it without a re-release, but that had a 3D tax, Avatar.

These figures are not adjusted for inflation in ticket prices, this is a hotly debated subject, but it is generally accepted that the highest grossing film of all time if ticket sales had always been at today's prices would be Gone With the Wind, whic would today gross $3.2 Billion at the box office, in fact the top 15 would look something more like this

  1. Gone with the Wind
  2. Avatar
  3. Titanic
  4. Star Wars
  5. The Lion King
  6. E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial
  7. Jurassic Park
  8. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
  9. Jaws
  10. The Exorcist
  11. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2
  12. Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace
  13. Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
  14. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
  15. Independence Day
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.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey holds firm at the top of the UK box office this week despite very strong competition from tsunami film The Impossible.

With a 3 day weekend gross of £4,075,781 The Hobbit stays put at the top of the UK box office for an amazing fourth week. The total gross for the Middle –Earth film is now just shy of £45 million, and is the 30th top film in the UK.

The Impossible is the highest new film at 2, starring Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts it's the true story of a family lost in the Boxing Day tsunami that happened in Thailand in 2004. With little publicity until recent weeks the film took a decent £ 4,034,470 over the weekend.

This time last year Tom Cruise was still at the top with Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol and Oscar winning film The Iron Lady about Margaret Thatcher's reign as British Prime Minister was the highest new entry at 3.

Five years ago I am legend was still at the top of the box office, and you had to look as far down as number 10 to get the highest new entry, Lust Caution, an Ang Lee direct film starring Tony Leung Chiu Wai.

Ten Years ago The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers wouldn't shift from the top of the box office which Star Trek Nemesis was the highest new film at 2.

Fifteen years ago Paul Verhoevens Starship Troopers was the top film in the country.

Keeping hold of the box office number one over the festive period is The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey which over the weekend starting 28th December took £6,850,728, up nearly a million from the previous weekend.

In total the Hobbit film has now taken just shy of 36 million pounds.

Highest new entry of the week is the Tom Cruise film Jack Reacher at number 3. A bit of a surprise this for a new Cruise action film, but there has been little publicity for the film and the adult theme has maybe kept some of the audience away, Reacher took £3,575,066.

Worthy of note this week, Skyfall has now become the first film in UK box office history to take over 100 million pounds, this far outstrips the 92 million pound gross of Avatar which had a 3D sales boosts.

This time last year Tom Cruise did have the top film, this time with his franchise movie Mission:Impossible Ghost Protocol which debuted at the top with £8,188,209.

Five years ago Will Smith had one of the biggest hits of his movie career to date with I Am Legend which debuted at the top grossing a quite brilliant £11,009,365.

Ten years ago we were in Middle Earth for the second time with The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers which held the top spot with £8,177,801, while musical Chicago debuted the highest at 8 with £113,386 on limited release.

Superheroes took the world by storm in 2012 with The Avengers (Avengers Assemble to us UK folk) taking the title of top grossing film across the world with a gross income of $1,514,279,547.

The runner up was another super hero movie, this time in the form of Batman in The Dark Knight Rises with took $1,078,930,642 globally.

Next up is the top British film of all time as Bond has his best film at the world box office ever and took $983,900,000 in 2012 with Skyfall.

Ice Age: Continental Drift took $877,111,391 making it the fourth best film of the year and the fifth best film is The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 with $794,805,734.

It wouldn't be right to mention 2012 with thinking of The Hobbit: Am Unexpected Journey which has to date taken $686,703,000, and will probably end up near the $1 billion mark making it one of the top film released in 2012 although much of that will be taken in 2013.

After an almost never ending saga of setbacks and 9 years after The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, director Peter Jackson takes his vision of J. R. R. Tolkien The Hobbit to the top of the box office.

Maybe because of the slightly less than favorable reviews are the reason but The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey debuts this week with a less than expected £11,601,538, still excellent but for best opening weekends that gross places it only at 33, between Pirates of the Caribbean 4 and 2, still an excellent gross but I don't think it will have a dominance over the box office like Skyfall has.

The Hobbit was nearly the only film released this week, but Disney did release Tinker Bell and the Secret of the Wings which landed at 5 with £528,82

Falling to number 2 this week is Rise of the Guardians which grossed £1,250,469 over the weekend.

A year ago Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows took the top spot with £3,827,697 on it's debut weekend knocking Arthur Christmas into third.

Five years ago The Golden Compass was still at the top with £3,002,951 while Enchanted entered at number 2 with £2,547,975.

Ten years ago Bond was still the top film with a weekend gross of £2,220,351 taking it's total to £27,078,158 while the top film was Like Mike at 4 with £246,169.

The first teaser poster for the forthcoming Star Trek reboot sequel Into Darkness has been release, and what a fantastic poster.

Featuring a sole figure looking out onto a city from inside a hole in side of some wreckage. What is the weckage, is it a building, is it the enterprise? Who is the figure, is it Kirk? Look closer at the hole, it's in the shape of the famous starfleet logo. Is that a futuristic London you can see in the distence? The Gherkin is there and the London Eye, are we in for a more grounded film this time, and based in London, the bad guy is British? Is that who's standing on the pile of rubble?

To see the a bigger poster, check below or for a really big one check here.

Many many question, what is known if that this is a great poster and if this lives up to the origianl reboot it'll be a great film.

The full cast and director JJ Abrams return next year on May 17th, although there will be a nine minute trailer with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

Peter Jackson has treated us to a new The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey trailer today, and it's well worth checking out.

I am really looing forward to this film, and it will be absolutely fantastic, and more importantly a great addition to a film series he started with The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, but I have to say that despite the lush settings, amazing photography, and mind blowing scenery, this is no where near as good as the original trailer.

Check it out below and let us know what you think.

Also worth checking out is the website, you can create your own The Hobbit trailer!

As with The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be shown to the public for the first time at the Embassy Theatre Wellington in New Zealand, the date, 28th November 2012 with the world premiere of the film.

The prequel to the Rings trilogy has been a long time coming due to legal problems. Peter Jackson is directing although Guillermo del Toro was originally due to take the helm.

Another taster of the production from Peter Jackson has been released as a new video diary/blog which can be seen in HD on The Hobbit Facebook page.

Today looks to be a day that should be celebrated as it mark the time that casting on The Hobbit is finally complete, Billy Connolly will be taking on the role of Dain Ironfoot who is a great drawf warrior in the story. Here we are 6 months into production, the first trailer released 6 weeks ago and casting is complete!

The anticipation for The Hobbit is building up to such an extent that I for one am starting to feel like this year can't be over with quick enough, and in the mean time we have a number of great films to enjoy.

In case you haven't been keeping up The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: There And Back Again is the 2 part screen adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's book The Hobbit, a prequel to The Lord of the Ring Trilogy the Peter Jackson brought to life in 3 spectacular films starting back in 2001.

Normally with a film getting this much hype and anticipation I'd be nervous that it could never live up to the hype, but watching the rings trilogy today is still as enjoyable and judging from the trailer for The Hobbit this will absolutely great.

Roll on December 14th when we'll finally be able to judge for ourselves whether Peter Jackson still have that gift or not.

As expected, mainly because it was pre-announced, the first trailer, and true glimpse, of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has gone live on iTunes today. The Hobbit in case you don't know is the prequel to The Lord of the Rings Trilogy that director Peter Jackson brought to the big screen in the early 2000's.

The production has had a difficult time but destiny chose Peter Jackson to direct the movies which are shooting in New Zealand probably as we speak. The first of the 2 films is probably the most anticipated film of next year (sorry Batman).

Of course the good thing about Jackson returning as director is that the connection between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings couldn't be stronger and most of the cast from the original films are back, and to open up this teaser we have Ian Holm, the original Bilbo Baggins doing a voice over. The trailer certainly ticks all the boxes, we see Frodo (Elija Wood), we see Bilbo young and old (young played by Martin Freeman who looks incredible) we see Gandolf (Ian McKellen) looking the same as he did in the Rings Trilogy. We get introduced to all the gang that will be in the new film, accompanied by a song!

What astounds me the most is that besides some clear productions values what will get sorted before release this just simply looks like it could have been part of the original Trilogy, it simply loks that good. To top things off we get to see briefly the Ring from the original series and Golum. Watch it, it's great, and there is only a year before we get to see the full feature. Also scroll down the page as the first poster for the film has also been released. Oh and check out the trailer here on iTunes.
