Star Wars A U film should be suitable for audiences aged four years and over, although it is impossible to predict what might upset any particular child.

U films should be set within a positive framework and should offer reassuring counterbalances to any violence, threat or horror. If a work is particularly suitable for pre-school children, this will be indicated in the ratings info.

ADVERTISMENT

Lionsgate have released the first trailer for the long awaited movie Chaos Walking starring Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley in her first movie post Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker.

After the movie had a release date of March 2019 it got delayed and then due to global events it got shifted around and finally landed at 22nd January 2021.

Based on the book series of the same name by Patrick Ness it is a sci-fi drama set in a dystopian world where all living creatures can hear thoughts in a series of images.

Directed by Doug Liman (Edge Of Tomorrow) look out for the movie early next year unless the pandemic demands another movie!

Check out the trailer above and keep with 25thframe.co.uk for more news as it comes.

As promised Disney have released the first trailer for Raya And The Last Dragon which they will release into cinemas March 12th 2021.

The story follows a fearless warrior and she searches a fantasy land for the last dragon in the world.

Check out the action packed trailer below.

Featuring the voices of Kelly Marie Tran (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) as the fearless warrior Raya and Awkwafina (Jumanji: The Next Level) as the dragon Sisu.

The trailer is full of action and definitely has that magical look and story telling that Disney has become known for.

Its looking like it will be a big hit for Disney in spring next year, if the cinemas re-opening allow, otherwise it could be straight to Disney+!.

With cinemas in the US having a hard time with a mixture of closures and re-openings in different states not to mention the lack of big new releases its good to see a new number 1 movie and one starring a big name.

Robert De Niro stars in the kids movie The War With Grandpa which quite easily tops the US box office this weekend pushing Tenet down to the runner up spot.

With no big blockbuster movies hitting cinemas until Christmas there is a chance we could see a lot of yo-yo'ing on the box office iver the coming weeks, and a ot of smaller independent movies doing better than expected.

Here is this weeks US box office Quickview.

  • Number 1 - War With Grandpa (1st Week)
  • Highest debut - War With Grandpa (@1)
  • Longest run - Unhinged (9 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back ($292,674,960)

Here is the US box office top 5 breakdown 9th - 11th October 2020

The War With Grandpa

Director Tim Hill's new movie gets released during a period when there is very little in the way of competition and coupled with its high profile star Robert De Niro the movie takes over at the top with a weekend gross of $3.6 Million.

The movie is squarely aimed at children and time will tell if it has enough for a long run at the top and with Tenet a continuous threat to reclaim the top and a new Liam Neeson action movie out this weekend it could be a short spell.

Tenet

Christopher Nolans mind bending movie falls from the top after 5 weeks with a weekend gross of $2.1 Million this weekend, 22% down from last weekend.

This gives the movie a 6 week total gross of $48.3 Million and is by a wide margin the top movie of recent months despite the fact it is being seen as a flop, but during the current time of closures what is a decent gross.

Hocus Pocus

Hocus Pocus

The 27 year old Halloween favourite drop to number 3 this weekend with $1.1 Million, the movie has now taken $42.6 Million since its release in 1993.

This weekends gross is 40% down from last weeeknd.

The New Mutants

The mutant movie from Disney starring Maisie Williams falls to number 3 this weekend with $685K, 34% down from last weekend, taking its gross to $21.9 Million after 7 weeks of release.

Unhinged

Falling to number 5 this weekend is the Russell Crowe starring movie which takes $660K this weekend, 22% down from last weekend, for a very nice $19.3 Million over 9 weeks of release.

With Tom hanks starring as an astronaut in a rocket that goes drastically wrong, the ITV drama about a big stately home goes to the big screen and some people try to climb the biggest mountain in the world, what were some of the highlights over the last 30 years at the UK box office?
