18th September 2018

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has given us some top films over the years, but none seem more anticipated than Captain Marvel.

Today Marvel gives us the first trailer for the film starring Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson.

Based in the 1990's the film has a great establishing shot of a Blockbuster video store before giving a little background on the character.

Check out the new trailer and poster below.

Captain Marvel

26th October 2017

Blade Runner 2049 might not have set the box office on fire when it was released 3 weeks ago but it has managed something not many film do and go back to the top of the chart after being knocked off.

It was a relatively quiet weekend at UK cinemas and the Blade runner sequel took £1.8 million to go back on top, nearly 50% down on last weekend.

This means the film has now managed £12.7 million on its UK run, its hard to put this in context of the original movie which 3 weeks in had made £0.8 million.

If take inflated ticket prices into play then the original would have made £4.3 million at this stage so the sequel is over £10 million ahead.

Highest new film of the week, and despite the appalling reviews, is Geostorm starring Gerard Butler, which enters at number 2 with £1.6 million.

The weather disaster movie is a typical summer blockbuster movie so being released so late in the year probably meant the studio had little faith in the film.

Last weeks top film, The Lego Ninjago Movie, falls to number 3 this week with £1.3 million and a total gross so far of £5.5 million.

We have a change of longest running and top total grossing film this week with IT being around for 7 weeks and grossed a total of £32 million.

The Stephen King adaptation from Warner Bros. is doing great business at the world box office and has now taken $371.3 million in total and should get to $500 million easily.

top total grossing movie on the top 10 this week is Spider-Man Homecoming which this week takes its total global gross to $861.2 million after a $16 million week from 44 countries.

12th September 2017

After a few weeks of non performances at the US box office this week a major blockbuster in the shape of IT not only brings it back to life but does so in record breaking style.

Director Andres Muschietti who previously directed Mama, brings to the screen Stephen Kings IT, and break the US September record for opening film in style.

After a few weeks of nothing to go and see at the movies the American public came out to the tune of $117 million, this is more double the previous highest September opening film.

Warner Bros. who distributed the film pumped a lot of marketing dollars into the film and it worked, although with little else in competition it was not hard to get people to realise the film was being released, and it worked.

Also new this week is Reese Witherspoon in Home Again which opened in the number 2 spot, little hype for this film meant a $9 million opening.

The Hitmans Bodyguard fell to number 3 this week with $4.8 million, now in its 4th weekend the film has grossed a total of $64 million.

Longest running film on the chart is Spider-Man Homecoming which has now spent 10 weeks on the chart, its also the highest total grossing film with $327 million.

21st June 2017

Making it a trio of weeks at the top this week Wonder Woman beats again The Mummy while the top new film is Churchill at number 5.

The DC Universe from Warner Bros. really has kicked into gear now with Wonder Woman taking £1.8 million on its third weekend of release.

This puts the films total gross in the UK at £16.2 million, although last years Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice made more it was very front loaded and by this point in its run had really slowed down.

The Mummy has done better in the UK than in other territories where it sunk on the second weekend, this week its still at 2 with £1.1 million for a total of £4.9 million.

Highest new film of the week is Churchill which enters the UK box office at number 5 with £392,732.

The film starring Brian Cox and Miranda Richardson has been praised critically but as a small independent film doesn’t get the reach of a high budget blockbuster and was only screened in 345 sites.

The film has done well to take this much and as is often the case with British film it is sure to hang around for many weeks to come.

Other films making their debut this weekend are Gifted starring Chris Evans and the Nick Broomfield documentary Whitney Can I Be Me at number 10.

Longest running film this weekend is The Boss Baby with 11 weeks on the chart while the top grossing movie is Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 which has now grossed £40 million in total.
