15th October 2018

This week the top 2 films flip round and A Star Is Born takes over at the top from Venom on their second weekends while First man has to settle for fourth on its debut.

First Man

A Star Is Born

The Oscar contender was unable to makes its debut at the top of the UK box office last weekend but after a tight fought battle manages to knock Venom off the top spot.

The films weekend gross is £3.08 million which takes the films total gross to £9.6 million

Venom

The Marvel film was not quite strong enough to hold on to the top spot for a second weekend as it falls to number 2 this week with £3 million.

This brings the Tom Hardy starring films total UK gross after 2 weekends of release to £13.7 million.

Its worth noting that across the week Monday - Sunday Venom is the top film with just £5.7 million compared to £5.5 million.

Johnny English Strikes Again

The British comedy starring Rowan Atkinson stays at 3 this week with a weekend gross of £2.9 million, this brings the films total gross after 2 weeks to £8.3 million.

It was in all a very tight fought battle at the box office for the top 3 places with less than £200,00 between the 3 movies.

First Man

Highest new entry of the week is First Man, set around the American space race to put the first man on the moon starring Ryan Gosling at Neil Armstring.

The film makes its debut with £2.4 million in the UK putting it this week at number 4, with Oscar buzz already in full swing for the film we could see this have a lengthy run.

Smallfoot

Finally in the top 5 is a new animated family film from Warner Bros. which makes its debut taking £2.3 million over the weekend.

Worth noting is that the top five films in the UK all take over £2 million this weekend as the bad weather sets in after a very good summer and people look for indoor things to do.

Also interesting this week is that positions 4 down to 8 are all new entries, and the weeks only new entries

Incredibles 2

The Disney Pixar film has now been arounf for 14 weeks and has taken an incredible £55.9 million.

15th October 2018

Venom makes is a second week as the top film in the world despite the release of First Man and continued attention on the Oscar potential A Star Is born.

First Man

Venom

Another week as the top film for the Marvel bad guy movie as it takes an excellent $105.4 million from 55 countries to boost its international cume to $235.3 million after 10 days of release.

A Star Is Born

Bradly Coopers directorial film is performing well at the global box office and from 66 countries this week takes a very good $48 million to be at number 2.

This increases the films global gross to a very respectable $94.1 million and it will go over $100 million by next weekend.

First Man

Starring Ryan Gosling the film about the NASA race to have America be the first country to get a man on the moon is at number 3 and takes a fairly tepid $16.5 million from 23 countries on its debut.

There is a big Oscar buzz around the film and if it picks up some Academy Awards it could mean the film hangs around for a good few months.

Smallfoot

Warner Bros. have another animated hit on their hands as the family comedy falls to 4 and takes $23 million from 58 countries on its third week of release which boosts its global gross to $110.2 million.

Project Gutenberg

The Chinese film is still only released in 6 countries and this week is at number 5 and takes $22 million for the week which boosts its international cume to $138.6 million.

14th October 2018

Venom stays at the top of the US box office this week with A Star Is Born staying at number 2, while new entries First Man and Goosebumps 2 Haunted Halloween follow at 3 and 4.

First Man

Venom

The Tom Hardy starring super villain movie manages to stay ahead of the crowd for a second weekend and remain at the top with a $35 million gross.

This brings the Reuben Fleischer directed Marvel films total gross after 10 days of release to $142.8 million.

A Star Is Born

Remaining in the runner up spot this week is the Bradley Cooper directed remake starring Lady Gaga which takes $28 million on its second weekend.

The film is just shy of the $100 million mark after 10 days with a US gross of $94.1 million.

17th September 2018

The story of the first man on the moon is one we all know, but new movie First Man goes behind the scenes to show how it all came together.

At the UK cinema box office this week we have a new top film in the shape of Paddington Bear who gets a cracking start to his cinematic career.

A £5.1 million opening weekend was enough to dislodge last weeks top film, although only just, The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 falls into second place with £4.9 million.

With Paddington making the move from TV to the big screen, and is likely to to gross somewhere in the £20 - £30 million region this is bound to be a new franchise in the making.

31st December 2011

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 simply did big business across the world in 2011 taking an incredible $1,327,655,619 in world wide box office takings.

The final instalment of the Harry Potter franchise made sure that no other franchise will come close to it for a while and it was the only film in the saga to break the billion pound mark in world grosses, although the 3D tax will have helped.

Coming in a healthy second is Transformers: Dark of the Moon which took $1,114,558,779, this is also the highest grossing film it's series, although to date there are only 3, more will follow. With Transformers taking over a billion it completed a top 10 of world box office films with over a billion.

Also worth a mention are Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides with just over a billion dollars, Kung Fu Panda with $659,230,261 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 with $648,079,401.

It was not a great year for film at the box office this year despite the high taking of 3 films, they were exceptions. Next year is a good year for films and could well see box office takings increase with the likes of Batman, Spider-Man and The Hobbit.

31st December 2011

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.

12th August 2011

You go away for a couple of weeks and something incredible happens, in last weeks world box office figures 2 films entered the $1 billion club, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and Transformers: The Dark of the Moon which now brings the total number of film which have grossed over a billion dollars to 10.

The incredible thing about this is that Deathly Hallows Part 2 is the first of the Harry Potter franchise to manage this, the 3D tax clearly helping to bring it over the magic figure, previous to this the closest was the first film so it's taken the entire series to beat the first films gross.

So far this year 3 films have taken over a billion, one more than last year and the most is a single calendar year, it may be no surprise then that all 3 of these films are presented in 3D and thus have the extra charge, although Pirates of The Caribbean reportedly has had a higher box office return in 2D.

9th December 2010

The third Transformers movie now has a teaser trailer up at Apple.com. It's an interesting trailer which shows that clearly Michael Bay is a big Alien fan as the trailer has a definite feel of the beginning of the first Alien movie.

The movie has a sub title of The Dark of the Moon (not to be confused with the Pink Floyd album) and has a release date July 1st 2011. Shia LaBeouf stars once again although there is no Megan Fox this time around.

Is it just me or does the re-constructed footage of the first men on the moon just look wrong, the way the astronaut's move just doesn't look right. The story seems predictable and as I said earlier, there is a big lean to Alien in the footage shown. Oh did I mention the film is in 3D?

Check out the footage at the Apple site or if the YouTube video is still up press play below.

11th March 2010

I haven't got round to seeing any of the Twilight Saga yet, the first film didn't interest me but the second film looked good, by this point thought I thought I'd wait until the whole Saga was out on disk. Today sees the release of the trailer for the latest film Eclipse.

The trailer must be for fans of the series as it made to sense to me, it's interesting and makes me want to see the film, but the first trailer for New Moon was much better and got me excited for the film.

The plot looks like it's more of a love story than the last film, correct me if I'm wrong, but as with the previous films there is lots of sulky looking people, and sweeping fields and mountains with a lot of greenery.

Check out the trailer at Yahoo or embedded below.

21st January 2010

Today (Thursday 21st January) BAFTA, the British Film Association awards, has announced it's nominations for the awards ceremony taking place in London on 21st February.

The all important best film of the year award is a race between Avatar, An Education, The Hurt Locker, Precious and Up In The Air and An Education also appears in the nomination for best British film along with Fish Tank, In The loop, Moon and Nowhere Boy.

Like the Golden Globe Awards the BAFTA's are seen as a pre-curser to the Oscars and in the directing category I can see the list being very similar as James Cameron (Avatar), Neill Blomkamp (District 9), Lone Scherfig (An Education), Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker) and Quentin Tarantino (Inglourious Basterds) all get nods, it's good to see Neill Blomkamp in there.

The best actor and actress categories are similar to the expectation for the Oscars as well with Jeff bridges who just won the Golden Globe leading the field for the men with George Clooney, Colin Firth, Jeremy Renner and Any Sirkis all getting a mention. The actress category is led by Carey Mulligan along with Saoirse Ronan, Gabourey Sidibe and of course Meryl Streep.

We'll find out in a months time who walks away with the awards in a ceremony hosted by TV favourite Jonathan Ross.

For a full list of nomination check out the BAFTA website.
