ADVERTISMENT

There have been many adaptations of the Sherlock Holmes character, but I suspect not many like this.

12A certificate

Starring Will Farrell and John C. Reilly this is a slapstick version of the famous British detective.

Released on 26th December 2018 the film has been given a 12A rating by the BBFC for moderate sex references, drug references, infrequent strong language and it has a run time of 90 minutes (1hour 30 minutes).

Finishing off this week we have the first trailer for new comedy Holmes And Watson starring buddies Will Farrell and John C. Reilly.

The very British crime fighting duo and in fine comedic form in the film and it looks like Farrell and Reilly pull of the Britishness with ease.

Expect lots of slap stick comedy in this silly looking but funny turn, it will keep you Holmies happy until the new Sherlock Holmes starring Robert Downey Jr. comes around.

The film is due for release on Boxing day of 2018 and you can check out the first trailer below.

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.

Historical Chart A year ago
This time last year as the summer season kicked into full swing X-Men Apocalypse entered the chart at the top knocking Captain America: Civil War down to number 4.

Five years ago
The Dictator starring Sasha Baron Cohen was the new film at the top, it knocked Avengers Assemble down to number 2 after 3 weeks at the top.

Ten years ago
Spider-Man 3 stayed at the top for a third weekend, top new film of the week was Zodiac directed by David Fincher at number 3.

Fifteen years ago
Star Wars Episode II: Attack of The Clones was the top new film of the weekend, it knocked About a Boy down to number 2 after 3 weeks at the top.

Twenty years ago
Liar Liar remained at the top for a third weekend while the top new film was The Relic at number 2.

Twenty Five years ago
Spending a second weekend at the top was Basic Instinct, top new film of the week was Waynes World which was new at 2.

The last box office chart of the year and Rogue One A Star Wars Story is still the top film across the country for a third straight week while top new film Why Him? comes in at number 2.

With a weekend gross that is showing only a gradual slow down Rogue One takes £5.9 million, this brings the films total gross to £52 million and makes it the highest grossing film released in 2016 in the UK.

Its still not the highest grossing film in the calendar year 2016 with Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens £5 million ahead but for Disney/Lucasfilms to have a the one and two position of the year its been a great year for Star Wars.

Highest new entry of the week entering at 2 is the James Franco comedy Why Him? which takes a very respectable £2.1 million.

For a not franchise film and with Franco as the main headline this is actually a good debut, but with little publicity and very little word of mouth the film could sink fast.

Highest total grossing film is Rogue One while longest running film this week is The Secret Life of Pets which has now been in cinemas for 15 weeks and this week is at number 15.

Historical Charts

A year ago
Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens was in its third week of release and at number one still and with nearly £100 million gross was close to being the top film in the UK ever, Joy was the top new film at 3.

Five years ago
making its debut at the top was Mission:Impossible Ghost Protocol while Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows fell from the top to number 3.

Ten years ago
Night At The Museum was the top new film of the week making its debut at number 1 while Happy Feet fell to number 2 after 3 weeks at number 1.

Fifteen years ago
Two weeks at the top for The Lord of The Rings: The Fellowship of The Ring while the top new film was the remake of Mean Machine which landed at 3.

Twenty years ago
101 Dalmatians remained at the top for a third week while top new film was Daylight which made its debut at number 3.

Twenty five years ago
Making its debut at the top was Curly Sue while The Addams Family fell to number 3 after 2 weeks at the top.

With the global release of any Star Wars films its going to feel like the world stops with baited breath watching how the film will perform, and this week is no different with the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

In the end Rogue One opens in the UK to £17 million, a very good opening and a shade above fellow splinter film Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them.

When compared to Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens it doesn't compare, it is about half of the opening gross from this time last year, not surprising as there is less anticipation and this is Star Wars in uncharted territory.

There can be no complaining though, like Fantastic Beasts, we are going to get more of these films and as they find their feet and get fans then the grosses will grow and grow.

Fantastic Bests falls from the top after 4 weeks at number 1 to 3 and a weekend gross of £1.4 million, it is less than £10,000 behind the number 2 film Moana.

It has now taken £45 million in the UK and is the 39th top grossing film of all time.

With the new Star Wars film there were no other new films this week hitting the chart.

Longest running film this week is Trolls which has been around for 9 weeks and highest total grossing movie is Fantastic Beasts.
