20th December 2018

Its been over 10 years since the last Hellboy movie but next year the series gets a reboot with new director and star.

Guillermo del Toro did a hell of a job in the director chair but Neil Marshall has taken over and the new film stars David Harbour as the title character.

The film is set for release on 12th April 2019 and you can enjoy the trailer below.

25th September 2018

Calling it the Harry Potter world is old hat now, the Wizarding World as its known is now growing beyond the boy wizard and we have a new series of films.

The Fantastic Beasts series reaches its second film this November and today Warner Bros. release the final trailer.

Were not a big fan of the Harry Potter series but we loved Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, and judging from this trailer the mystery and wonder as well as the sheer epic spectacle are all in place.

I cant help thinking that after a great first movie in the series this film is just going to fall to type and be a good guy versus bad guy like Harry Potter.

Decide for yourself and and check out the trailer below.

17th September 2018

At the US box office this weekend The Predator made a return to the box office in a reboot movie and despite bad reviews took the top spot.

A SImple Favour

Taking a weekend gross of $24 million the sixth movie to feature the famed hunter took over at the box office with ease, although it took less on its debut than the 2010 movie Predators which took $24.8 million.

Falling into the runner up spot this week is THe Nun which takes $18.2 million on its second weekend of release.

THis brings the films total US gross to $85 million after 10 days of release, this film took a massive tumble in its second weekend but will still be a top entry in the Conjuring series of films.

New at number 3 is A Simple Favour directed by Paul Feig in his first film since the miss he had with Ghostbuster.

The film which stars fan favourite Anna Kendrick takes a reasonable $16 million on its debut weekend on the US box office.

Also new this week is White Boy Rick which stars Matthew McConaughey, the film takes $8.8 million on its debut.

Falling to number 5 this week is Crazy Rich Asians with $8.7 million, the film has done incredibly well and has a US debut of $149.5 million to date.

11th May 2018

There have been a number of takes on the Predator story from the original John McTiernan directed classic and its sequel to the not that terrible team up with the Alien franchise and then the last effort was the Nimród Antal directed Predators

Now we get the Shane Black directed The Predator which today gets its first teaser trailer, and it looks like were going back to basics.

Its not clear from the trailer any elements of the story but we get a young boy opening a box and we get a soldier being interrogated, how do the two get connected?

Check out the trailer for yourself below.

19th February 2018

Marvel released their latest superhero this weekend into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the shape of Black Panther and became the studios second best debut behind Avengers Age of Ultron the second Avengers movie.

A weekend gross of £17.7 million means the film is less than a million behind the multi superhero film.

The second Avengers movie went of to make just shy of £50 million so Black Panther could well go over that mark in the coming weeks, the first Avengers movie, Avengers Assemble is the top grossing Marvel movie at £51 million.

Falling to number 2 this week is Fifty Shades Freed which takes £2.7 million in its second weekend for a £13.3 million total so far.

New at number 3 is the critically praised The Shape of Water from Guillermo del Toro, a £2.4 million debut isn't hit top debut, Hellboy II: The Golden Army did better, but its right up there.

Holding on at number 4 is The Greatest Showman which has now been around for 8 week and is the top grossing film of 2018, so far, and has taken an amazing £30 million.

Finally Coco from Disney Pixar is still in the top 5 and has now taken £15 million over 5 weeks.

11th October 2017

Its taken 35 years to produce a sequel to one of the greatest sci-fi movies of all time and Blade Runner 2049 does what its predecessor couldn't and tops the box office.

Its hard to draw comparisons when there is such a gap between two parts but Blade Runner was considered a flop on release and only later was considered a classic, although not setting the box office alight as expected the sequel does manage a £6 million debut.

The reviews and the anticipation should have perhaps demanded a £10 million plus opening, but perhaps the long running time and stylised cinematography put people off.

Falling to number 2 after 2 weeks on top is Kingsman The Golden Circle which still manages a very respectable £2.1 million.

This brings the films total to date to £19.4 million, this means the film has in 3 weeks outgrossed the originals 9 week gross of £16 million.

Also new this week is The Mountain Between Us at number 4 with £0.7 million and the event feature Nora from the Met Opera (Norma Met Opera 2017) at number 7.

For the first time in 8 weeks there is a new highest total grossing movie, although it is Despicable Me 3 which is also the longest running film with 15 weeks, it has grossed £47 million.

27th September 2017

This week the Michael Vaughn directed Kingsman The Golden Circle takes over the top of the UK chart with ease, IT makes a respectable fall to number 2.

Following on from the 2015 film Kingsman The Golden Circle this week makes its debut at number 1 with a weekend gross of £8.5 million.

Kingsman had a debut weekend of just over £4 million do the sequel has double that gross and has already made half of the originals total gross.

With this debut Kingsman 2 should be able to getting in the region of £25 - £30 million quite easily.

After a couple of weeks at the top IT falls to the runner up spot although it still manages a very respectable £2.8 million.

This brings the films total gross to £26.4 million, with plenty of milage left in the film we could be looking at £35 million total gross.

With the new Kingsman movie out this week studios didn't want to put anything of note against it so there are no other new film on the top ten.

The power of IT at the UK box office was far to strong this week and with ease it remains at the top of the box office while Judy Dench stars in the highest new entry.

Warner Bros. continue to market the horror film IT to great effect as the film takes £6 million which is only a 40% drop from its debut.

This brings the films total gross to an excellent £21.1 million from 10 days of release which is putting the film on for easily a £35 million total take in the UK.

Highest new film of the week is Victoria and Abdul directed by Stephen Frears and starring Judi Dench.

The film takes £1.8 million for the weekend which places it at number 2 on this weeks chart.

Also new this week is Mother! which enters at number 3, and with rave reviews and much publicity takes a quite disappointing £0.8 million.

American Assassin is also new at 4 and The Jungle Bunch makes a new entry at number 6.

13th September 2017

After a couple of weeks of very little excitement at the Uk box office this week explodes with the release of Warner Bros. IT which dominates the chart and easily enters at the top.

IT enters the Uk box office with just over £10 million which puts in in the top 100 for UK best opening films and it is the only film on the top 10 to gross over a million.

The hype that has been put into the marketing of the film has been huge and it has paid off, and with favourable reviews, and Stephen King being a favourite in the UK the film was bound to do well.

With nothing of note coming out this weekend coming IT is bound to continue at the top at least for the next week.

American Made falls from the top to number 2 this week with a gross of just over half a million, this brings the films total gross to £4.3 million after 3 weeks of play.

Once again Despicable Me 3 is the longest running film of the chart with 11 weeks and once again Dunkirk os the highest total grossing film with an excellent £55 million, it is now the 19th highest grossing film ever in the UK.

24th May 2017

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.

Despite the mediocre reviews the films launch has it enter the top with a weekend gross of &5.1 million, compared to its predecessor Prometheus this is a million lower.

Falling from the top is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 after a couple of weeks at the top, a £3,2 million weekend brings the films total to £33 million after 3 weeks of play.

Studios were a bit nervous to release new films against the Alien movie but Miss Sloan starring hot property Jessica Chastain entered the chart at 8 with just over £190,000.

Also new was the Cinema event feature Der Rosenkavalier: Met Opera 2017 which took a little over £313,000 and is at 6.

Second week of release for the Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 keeps it at the top with A Dogs Purpose coming in at 2 as the highest new film.

With a 50%+ drop in its weekend gross Guardians this week takes £6 million in its box office takings.

This takes the Chris Pratt starring movie to £27.4 million after 10 days of release, the film is current doing almost double the business of the original Guardians movie at this point.

It was a US hit a month or so back and after taking £1.3 million on its debut is set to become a hit on this side of the Atlantic as well.

Also new this week is Sleepless at number 6, MIndhorn at number 8 and Unlocked at number 10, a low grossing top 10 this week means all these film took less than half a million on their debut.

2nd May 2017

The Marvel unsung heroes (outside of Deadpool) have gained a massive following since the release of the first film and the inevitable sequel was always going to be a massive blockbuster.

Landing at the top of this weeks UK box office Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 takes a fantastic £13 million making it the 41 highest debut ever, behind The Inbetweeners Movie and head of The Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers.

The original Guardians of The Galaxy opened to £6.3 million in 2014, good for an untried new franchise, this film had bigger hype and has gained a loyal following and more than doubles the debut gross.

With favourable reviews and stars Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana at the top of their games, and with the best hero at the cinema in Baby Groot were looking at a £40 - £50 million total gross.

Falling from the top after 2 weeks if Fast and Furious 8, a £1.7 million 3rd weekend means that the film has now taken £26 million, it will struggle now to catch up with Fast and Furious 7.

15th March 2017

It was a claws out at this weekends box office as Kong Skull Island and Logan fought it out for the top spot and the new relese of Kong won the battle.

From the same production team that brought us Godzilla in 2014 Kong Skull Island is set in the same universe and is set to start a "monsters" universe similar to that of the Marvel and DC cinematic universes.

Kong opens similar to Godzilla with just over £6 million, but the film was far better received than Godzilla with the critics with a surprise amount of praise for the monster film.

Godzilla went on to gross £17 million in the UK and there is nothing to suggest this wont do similar if not better.

Logan falls into second place this week with £3.8 million after a single week at the top, this brings the films total gross to £16 million after 10 days of release.

This means that on its second weekend the film is already the best of the solo Wolverine movies and it still has plenty of milage left.

A couple of interesting things to note this week, if the chart were taken on a Monday - Sunday then Logan would have still been the top film.

Also Moulin Rouge which is on a Secret Cinema run at the moment and is number 13 on the weekend chart would have been number 4 with £2 million for the week.

There are no other new released in the top 10 this week but Elle makes a new entry at number 11 with £0.2 million and Dancer is new at 12 also with £0.2 million.

Longest run this week is Lion with 8 weeks on the chart and highest total grossing movie is Sing with £28 million.

7th March 2017

This week making its debut at the top of the UK box office is the critically acclaimed Wolverine movie Logan starring Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart.

The solo Wolverine movies have not had the best of times at either the box office or with critics, but Logan bucks that trend and gets the 78 highest debut weekend in the UK with £9.44 million.

Compared to both X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Wolverine this is far higher with those films taking £6 million and £4 million respectively, it will do better than both those films.

The Lego Batman Movie falls to number 2 after 3 weeks at the top with a £1.5 million weekend which brings the films total gross to £24.9 million and is currently the second highest grossing movie of 2017.

Also new this week are Viceroys House which is at 3 with £0.9 million and Fist Fight at 10 with £0.4 million.

La La Land is both the longest running film on the UK box office with 8 weeks so far and the highest grossing with £29.8 million, it is also the top grossing film of 2017 so far.

18th July 2016

On the UK video chart this week The Divergent Series Allegiant makes its debut at the top moving Grimsby well and truly out of the way.

Allegiant was released in the UK on 11th March 2016 and made its debut at number 2 of that week with Kung Fu Panda 3 beating it to the top.

Ironically it is the other way round on the video charts, Kung Fu Panda 3 is also released this week on video and makes its debut at number 2.

The Divergent Series Allegiant was a small hit at the box office only staying for 4 weeks with a total UK gross of £4.3 million.

This is a poor showing for the series, the first 2 films made £6 and £7 million respectively so this is a low.

Last weeks top film Grimsby falls from the top to number 4 after only one week and will most likely continue on a fast face out of the chart.

Other new film this week are: as already mentioned Kung Fu Panda 3 is at 2, The Boy is new at number 6 and Hail, Ceasar! is at 7 and finally Forsaken is new at 9.

23rd March 2016

King Fu Panda 3 stays on top of the UK box office for a second week as not much of a challenge enters the market in preparation for an explosion this coming weekend. Panda 3 only needed £1.7 over the weekend in order to stay on top, although the threequel is behind the other 2 in the series at this point.

After 10 days of play the film has a total gross of just over £7 million, the easter holidays are next week so it could hold up well again, although Zootopia will bring major competition.

Highest new film of the week enters at number 2, 10 Clover Field Lane is an odd successor to Cloverfield, but not a sequel.

£1.6 million for the weekend is not a bad entry although opened to £3 million+, this will struggle to meet even that.

Also new this week is: The boy at number 5, High-Rise at number 6 and Kapoor and Sons at number 10.

Highest total grossing film of the week is Deadpool at number 7 with £36 million over a 6 week run.

3rd June 2015

I'm particularly looking forward to this film as my friends little boy is in it, Adam Michael Dodd.

3rd March 2015

This week sequel movie The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel makes its debut at the top of the UK box office chart.

The original cast returns for the sequel to the 2012 movie with the help of American star Richard Gere who is added to the cast to give it an ‘American' appeal.

The film takes £3.7 million on it's debut weekend which is far better than the £2.2 million of the original, that film had long lasting appeal, time will tell if this follows.

Falling into the runner up spot after 2 weeks at the top is Fifty Shades Of Grey, a third weekend gross of £2.5 million brings the total to £30.4 million making it by far not the best grossing film of 2015 to date.

Worth mentioning, if the chart were based on the full week ticket sales and not just the weekend, Fifty Shades of Grey would have retained it's position at the top with £5 million.

Other new films to enter the box office this week are: Focus at 3, The Boy Next Door at 7 and It Follows at 8.

US box office results 22nd January 2015: American Sniper still retains top spot Clint Eastwood's American Sniper has stayed at the top of the US box office for another weekend taking another $64 million in it's 5th weekend of release.

The heavily Oscar nominated film has now taken a total of over $200 million in the US, in his long film career it is not Eastwood's highest grossing movie.

The film still has plenty of milage to go and if it wins big at the Oscars the film could see another massive boost to it's US takings.

Highest new film of the week is Jennifer Lopez (jLo) in The Boy Next Door which takes $15 million on it's debut, one of the highest grosses she has had in a number of years.

Other new film this week are: George Lucas's animated take Strange Magic at 7 and Johnny Depps offbeat comedy Mortdecai at 9.

22nd August 2014

With very little in the way of new films this weekend the Daniel Radcliffe starring What If seems to have the biggest potential with Lucy and Into The Storm also on release. The former Harry Potter star has really built up a following since his days as the boy wizard and he has had big success outside the series with The Woman in Black.

A fairly simple love story What If should see a top 5 entry, especially for the Potter fans wanting to see how Radcliffe does as a romantic lead.

Possibly out to spoil What If's party is Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson and directed by Luc Besson, the French director who brought us Le Femme Nikita and Leon.

With a top hollywood star, Morgan Freeman in for good measure and good pre-word this could easily out perform What If this weekend.

Into The Storm is also out, but no star appeal and a tried and tested them of weather elements gone wrong this should limp into the top 10.

Also worth a mention is Doctor Who, a special event screening of the first episode of the new series is happening on Saturday night, the previous Doctor Who event screen took Day of the Doctor to number 3 with £1.8 million.

The top 2 films of The Inbetweeners 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy should stay in place but maybe there will be a swap around with Guardians going back to the top?

Come back next week to find out the final weekend results.

11th July 2014

An interesting weekend of releases, Transformers: Age of Extinction and How to Train Your Dragon 2 go on general release after a couple of weeks of previews, and Boyhood and Begin Again are fresh to cinemas.

The fourth Transformers film is going to be the top film of the weekend, last weeks previews will be added to the gross meaning it will open in the £10 million mark and it could be the biggest opening of the franchise.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 has been on pre-release for a while now and has been on the box office chart for a couple of weeks, it's wider release will push it up the chart and it should go to number 2 this weekend.

Boyhood is a film from Richard Linklater and has been 12 years in the making, following the life of a young lad Linklater film in realtime with the boy growing up. Good reviews means it should get at least a top 10 entry.

Also out is Keira Knightly and Mark Ruffalo in Begin Again.

13th May 2014

After a successful advanced showing last week which would have put the film at the top those figures go a long way to make sure that bad Neighbours knocked The Amazing Spider-Man 2 off it's perch this week.

Starring Seth Rogan and Zac Efron Bad Neighbours had no trouble de-throning the web slinger with an £8.5 million debut.

Spider-Man 2 falls into second place with £1.3 million bringing it's total gross to £22 million after 4 weeks.

Also new this week are:
Sabotage - Arnold Schwarzenegger's latest
La Cenerentola - the latest from the Met Opera
Frank
The Wind Rises
Before The Winter Chill

Last year saw the much anticipated Star Trek Into Darkness enter at the top knocking Iron Man 3 into second place.

Five years ago saw JJ Abrahams first Star Trek film enter the box office at the top knocking X-Men Origins: Wolverine into 3rd place with Coraline entering at 2.

Ten years ago had Van Helsing debuting at the top meaning Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind fell to number 2.

Fifteen years ago had I Still Know What You Did Last Summer go to the top on it's first week leaving The Waterboy to have a single week at the top.

7th May 2014

No move at the top of the box office this week for a third consecutive week give The Amazing Spider-Man 2 the top film of the week. The summer season has started.

The follow up Spider-Man film added another £2 million over the weekend bringing it's total UK gross to just why of £ 20 million.

With The Other Woman staying put at 2 the highest new film was the Paul W.S. Anderson directed Pompeii which entered at 3. Based on the historical events surrounding the Italian village Pompeii took £1.2 million over the weekend.

Other new films this week are:
Tarzan (4)
Plastic (10)
Blue Ruin (15)

This time last year there was still no moving Iron Man 3 as he spent another week at the top with the highest new film 21 and Over entering at 2.

Five years ago X-Men Origins: Wolverine debuted on the chart at the top leaving Hannah Montana The Movie to land at 2. State of Play fell from the top to 3.

Ten years ago Kill Bill Volume 2 was still riding the top slot keeping Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind from debuting at number 1, it had to settle for 2.

Fifteen years ago The Waterboy starring Adam Sandler was the new film at the top of the box office, knocking 8MM down to second place.

Twenty years ago Four Wedding and a Funeral was the big film for May with The Naked Gun 33 1/3 The Final Insult and The Crow also doing well while twenty five years ago Warlock starring Julian Sands was the big film with Mississippi Burning and Beaches also doing well.

6th September 2013

In a very slow and quiet week at the UK box office X-Factor rejects One Direction top the box office in a behind the stage documentary.

Directed by Supersize Me's Morgan Spurlock (and American which shows where the band are most popular) One Direction: This is Us follows the band on their recent tour. The documentary takes the top spot with £3.4 million. Last weeks top film, Elysium, falls to number 2 after a week at the top.

This time last year the remake of Total Recall was at the top of the UK chart knocking Brave from the top spot to number 3, Neighborhood Watch took the number 2 spot.

Five years ago Step Brothers starring Will Farrell and John C. Reilly took the top from Hellboy II which fell to number 4, Mama Mia held onto the number 2 spot and The Strangers entered at 3.

Ten years ago Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl remained the top film with Jeepers Creepers 2 entering at 3.

Fifteen years ago The X-Files was the top film still with the highest new film Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels entering at 3.

30th August 2013

Nothing of real note this week in the UK which could lead to a fairly static box office chart this weekend, leading the way is the Michael bay low budget film Pain and Gain and indie film The Way Way Back with Steve Carell and Toni Collette.

Pain and Gain has not been getting much in the way of good reviews, infact it's been getting terrible reviews. Michael Bay who usually directs big budget films like Transformers brings us this films about body building and kidnapping, starring Mark Wahlberg.

Very little is known of this film and I suspect a low entry, top 10 at least and around the £800,000 mark over the weekend.

THe other new release is The Way Way Back, the coming of age story centers around a young boy in a dysfunctional family who befriends the owner of a water park.

Despite the good reviews and 'A' list stars little is known of this film and a quick release to DVD and limited cinema release might get this film in £100,000 but no entry in the box office top 15.

29th August 2013

Neill Blomkamp this week scores his second number 1 film with his second film, Elysium, which smashes last weeks top film from the top spot, We're the Millers and The Mortal Instruments also debut in the top 5.

With a weekend gross of £3.1 million Elysium easily takes over at the top of the UK box office making it the 21st number 1 film this year.

Following behind in the runner up spot is We're the Millers.

Last weeks top film, Kick-Ass 2, falls all the way to number 7 this week with a weekend take of just over £600,000.

Compared to my predictions Elysium did open in the top spot and was just shy of my £4 million suggestion. We're the Millers opened where I suggested at 2 and was just a little shy of the £2 million I predicted. The Mortal Instruments performed as I expected opening in the top 5 and with around £1 million. Lovelace opened well outside the top 15 (20) and only took £86,000, it was only in 80 cinemas though.

Last year Brave contunued to perform well in the top spot with the highest new film right down at 5 being Keith Lemon: The Movie.

5 years ago Hellboy II debuted at number 1 knocking The Dark Knight down to number 4.

10 years ago American Pie: The Wedding remained at the top with Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life debuting at 3 as the highest new film.

15 years ago The X-Files movie took over at the top on it's debut weekend taking over from Armageddon which fell to number 2.

23rd August 2013

It has been announced that Ben Affleck will wear the Batman outfit in the Superman/Batman film crossover which was announced during Comic Con 2013.

The film will be a sequel to the recent Superman reboot Man of Steel, but with Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan producing it has a relationship with the recent Batman films.

Fans were hoping that Christian Bale who played the superhero in those recent Dark Knight films would play Batman but he recently ruled himself out.

This isn't the first time Affleck has dipped his toes in a superhero franchise, he took the lead role in 2003‘s Daredevil which was panned by critics and fans alike.

This isn't the best casting, Affleck is a decent actor, and a decent dramatic actor, his Oscar wins this year were deserved, but I just cant see him in the Batman role, Bruce Wayne is a billionaire playboy and I don't get that when I think of Affleck.

The new film is set for a 2015 release, July 17th in the US so expect a UK release either the same time or there about.

15th March 2013

A lot of new releases this week starring the likes of Jim Carrey, Elijah Wood, Zac Efron, James McAvoy and then there's The Last Exorcism sequel. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is a wacky comedy also starring Steve Carell alongside Jim Carrey about 2 superstar magicians who are being out performed by street magicians so they go for sabotage of their act.

Maniac is a serial killer story about a Mannequin shop owner who develops a dangerous obsession with an artist.

The Paperboy has a seller cast of Zac Efron, Matthew McConaughey, Nicole Kidman and John Cusack, the story follows a reporter who returns to Florida to investigate a case which involves a prisoner on death row.

Welcome to the punch is a criminal cat and mouse story about an ex-con who returns to London for family reasons and is then pursued by an old foe looking to finally get revenge.

The Last Exorcism Part 2 is is a sequel film about an Exorcism, clearly the last one wasn't the last one!

19th September 2012

Ray Winston takes us on a nostalgia trip (for those who remember) with a reimaging of the mid 70's TV series The Sweeney taking the box office crown.

Director Nick Love is the writer and director or this TV series transition which has clearly hit a note with British audiences as its opening weekend manages a low but impressive £1,545,294. Last weeks top film Dredd has a large fall to 5 this week with a weekend take of £769,381 taking it's 2 week total to £2,725,180.

The Dark Knight Rises continues to make money and is by far the top film of the year now with a UK gross of £55,769,510 having been on the charts for 9 weeks.

A year ago the spy thriller Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy debuted at the top with £2,814,860 knocking The Inbetweeners Movie down to second place.

Five years ago Run Fatboy Run was still at the top while challenger Superbad entered the chart at 2.

Ten years ago M. Night Shyamalan was still in favour at Disney and took Signs to the top of the box office knocking The Bourne Identity off.

4th July 2012

At the UK box office chart this week the fourth Ice Age films takes the number one spot. It was a bad week though as no film in the UK grosses over a million pound in box office takings.

Ice Age: Continental Drift continues the success of the Ice Age series, but with only £853,226 for its opening weekend it's set to be the lowest grossing. Also this week Prometheus continues it's good run and goes back up to number 2 but last weeks top film, Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, falls 5 places to number 6.

This weeks top 15 films marks the lowest top 15 since 25th June 2010 when Get Him to the Greek topped the chart and the combined chart took only £ 3,460,985, although the last time no film in the UK took over a million was way back on 28th September 2007 when Run Fatboy Run was in it's 4th week at the top.

This time last year fared much better that last weekend when the 3rd Transformers film, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, took the top spot with an incredible £10,728,503 and also was the top new film of the week.

Five years ago Shrek The Third topped the chart in its opening weekend with and amazing £16,671,727 and it also was the highest new film of the week. And ten year ago Spider-Man was still at the top of the chart having taken it's total gross to £20,953,100 while Murder by Numbers with Sandra Bullock was the highest new film at 2.

15th February 2012

Daniel Radcliffe, for the immediate future anyway, is always going to be Harry Potter, for 10 years he lived and breathed the character and to millions of adoring fans he is the image of the boy wizard, which is why it is an achievement that while watching The Woman in Black Harry Potter hardly crossed my mind.

The story, set in an Edwardian era, centers around Arthur Kipps (Radcliffe) who is a solicitor sent to clear up the paperwork of a recently deceased woman. Kipps himself has a 4 year old child and is a widow, his wife having died during child birth.

Kipps arrives in the village of Crythin Gifford where he is to spend the next couple of days working before his son arrives to join him for a holiday. During his train journey Kipps meets the local wealthy man who he befriends and then is given a lift in his car (noted as being the first car in the village) to the inn where he is booked in to stay.

The welcome Kipps gets from everyone else is far from friendly, and as he goes about his business the next day he is more or less told to leave town. What ensues from there is a traditional ghost story with scares and jumps at every opportunity.

As I first mentioned Radcliffe, fresh from the Potter franchise where he IS the boy wizard, manages to detach himself from that completely, not sure if it's the side burns or the fact that his character spends a lot of time alone and doesn't say a lot, or maybe it's the low budget film not being laden with special effect but it's a good move.

I'm showing my age now but I remember the Hammer Horror films of the 70's and 80's which at the time were scary as hell, and the TV show had me hiding behind the sofa more than Doctor Who did, and this film, which is produced by Hammer and filmed in the UK captures the spirit of the old Hammer perfectly.

The film is jumpy if a little corny in places, not too long and has a story which is acceptable for a horror film of this type. I started the question things when a seemingly normal guy decides to spend the night in the creepiest looking house in England that is cut from mainland during for large part of the day and he'd already experienced minor paranormal activity (I'd never have gone anywhere near the house in the first place) and some of the jumpy scenes were far too predictable and came off as amusing but on the whole it's an enjoyable scary horror harking back to the glory days of Hammer.

Good: Decent screenplay from Jane Goldman and some genuinely scary moments. Well directed by James Watkins and a good supporting cast.

Bad: Does get predictable and some of the scares are funny. Too many unanswered things happen and the ending although good could have been better.

The final instalment of Harry Potter saw the boy wizard go out with a bang, and it became the most successful film of the franchise in the process, and for 2011 it is the highest grossing film at the UK box office.

During its 10 week run it raked up £73,094,187 in UK box office takings, at todays cinema ticket prices that is about 13.5 million tickets making it the 30th top film in the UK by ticker sales. Other film to do well in 2011 were The kings Speech with £45.3 milion, The Inbetweeners with £45 million, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides with £32.9 million and The Hangover Part II with £32.7 million.

In all a good year for British films (is Harry Potter a British film?) with Blockbusters not doing so well, Breaking Dawn and Transformers Dark of the Moon performed well enough but they were big budget blockbusters and had higher expectations.

I think the winner of the year was The Inbetweeners Movie that performed well abouve expectations, made back its budget and secured a sequel in the process, al that for a little Channel 4 show about bad mouthed undersexed teens.

9th February 2011

Tangled maintained its position at the top of the UK box office chart this week with a non-too shabby weekend gross of £4,569,135 which is only down just over half a million on the previous week, not bad, this means also that the overall gross over 10 days stands at £ 10,742,265.

Retaining it number 2 spot is The Kings Speech which is still managing to impress, not only at the box office but at the continuous awards ceremonies at this time of year, a weekend take of £2,739,204 brings its gross of 5 weeks to £30,014,606.

Highest new entry of the week The Fighter, another Oscar contender for many awards the film stars Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale and is directed by David O. Russell. A weekend take of £ 2,118,140 is good considering the competition.

Black Swan drops a single place to 4 with £1,725,630 while new at 5 is the James Cameron presented Sanctum, it's not doing the same numbers as a Cameron directed film and is maybe a little disappointing with £ 859,064.

Again this weeks box office is a little higher than this time last year where Avatar was still the top film and still raking in a weekend take of over £4million. Highest new entry was Disney's The Frog Princess with Astro Boy following and Invictus not far behind. Sherlock Holmes was still hanging onto the top 5.

1st June 2010

For many fans The Lord of the Rings is the greatest trilogy of films ever and when Peter Jackson announced that we would not direct the prequel, The Hobbit, the fan based moaned, then he announced that Guillermo del Toro would be directing and the fans cheered, then the series lost del Toro and the fans are sad again.

What's happened? It seems because of the legal problems with the rights to the film with MGM and Warner it's taken so long to get the ball rolling on the film del Toro has simply run out of time and had to leave.

Jackson and his staff are naturally all on board still and fighting to get the film made but the loss of the director is a massive blow, del Toro's films like Hellboy and Pans Labyrinth have proved that the director is more than capable of handling the film and in actual fact would have given the production the perfect style to accompany Jacksons originals.

Where will the films go now? Who knows, Sam Rami has been connected, will be interesting to see where it goes with him, Spidey trilogy shows he can miss on occasions but Evil Dead and Drag Me to Hell can show he has style, but maybe, just maybe Jackson will take the helm himself.

This is a big blow for the production and puts things on rocky ground; del Toro will still help with the script, which is something. Let hope a director can be found who can deliver, Neill Blomkamp anyone?

7th June 2009

Can you believe that it's ten years today (November 18th) since the first teaser trailer for Star Wars Episode 1 was shown in the cinema for the first time? The internet was still in its infancy, as was DVD and staggered cinema releases were still a big thing for blockbuster film releases.

The event was huge and well hyped and although the trailer was released onto the internet few people had a fast enough internet connection at home to really download the trailer or steam it in a watchable fashion so American audiences really did to get to see it ahead of the rest of the world.

I was working at the time for a well known internet company and had access to a fast T1 connection and I remember waiting patiently that afternoon to download the trailer and watch it on the tiny 14 inch monitor I used to work with, I wanted to wait and see it on the big screen, but I couldn't wait until the new year to see this new Star Wars footage.

In the US the trailer was attached to a number of films at the time, two being The Waterboy and The Siege and the teaser can probably account for much of those films total gross. These days people choose to watch trailers on the internet and you rarely, if ever get people walking out of a screening once the trailers are over.

Was the trailer any good, my god was the trailer good, in fact the trailer as it turned out was better than the film itself. After seeing the trailer I got straight on the phone to a friend of mine who lives in California and arranged to fly to the US the following May so we could go and see the movie the night of release, which I did.

Did you get goose bumps down your spine the first time you saw the trailer? Was it one of the most exciting things you had seen since the trailer for The Return of the Jedi? Let us know you thought on the trailer and what you think 10 years later.

Just to refresh your memory here is the original Star Wars Episode 1 teaser trailer.
