2018 was another year at the US box office where Disney dominated with their Marvel franchise and Pixar hit while there was a sprinkling of Dinosaurs and a Deadpool for good measure.
The top film in the US in 2018 was the critically acclaimed Black Panther which was released in February and grossed over $700 million during its box office run.
As if that wasn't enough Disney also took the second spot of 2018 with Avengers Infinity War which was released in April and took an amazing $678 million at the US box office.
And again as if that wasn't enough for Disney they also managed the third highest grossing movie of 2018 with their Pixar studio film Incredibles 2 which was released in June and grossed over $608 million.
Universal took the 2018 number 4 slot in the US with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and despite the fact that it took over $400 million in the US it was far from the 3 Disney hits above it.
Finally on the top five hits of 2018 in the US is the Fox property Deadpool 2 which took $324 million, interestingly Fox's movie devision is about to be acquired by Disney, and the film had a second dip of the box office over the holiday period.
Disney's Marvel domination is set to continue into 2019 with more high profile releases, and despite the lack of any Star Wars movies (another Disney property) on this list the anticipation for 2019's Episode IX is already growing.
Here is the top 10 film of 2018 at the US box office.
On 9th August next year Disney bring their adaptation of author Eoin Colfer for Artemis Fowl book to the big screen and here they deliver the first trailer.
The film is in good hands being directed by Kenneth Branagh and starring the likes of Judi Dench so we should get a faithful adaptation of the books.
There are 8 books in the series and Disney will be hoping to get a franchise going to rival the likes of Harry Potter and join Disney's Marvel and Star Wars franchises.
Check out the first trailer and poster below.
UK audiences were spellbound by the Fantastic Beasts sequel this week, but is the love for the Wizarding World starting to wane a bit?
This weeks top movie in the UK took an excellent £12.3 million at the UK box office on its debut and although this makes it the 54th top opening film in the UK its £3 million lower than Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.
Its only natural that after nearly 20 years of magical films audiences have seen it all before and don't rush to the cinema to see new films from the Wizarding World.
As we have seen this year with Star Wars movies and in the past with film series like The Hobbit even die hard fans can get too much of a good thing and will wait to see a movie.
Making its debut at the top last week the animated retelling of the Dr. Seuss story falls to 2 this week with a £3.9 million weekend pushing its total to £10 million.
Still wowing audiences in the UK is the Queen bio-pic which after 4 weeks of release still manages a £3 million weekend which brings the films total UK gross to £34.8 million.

Taking over at the top with a fantastic opening weekend of £9.5 the film starring Rami Malek wowed UK audiences but didn't please all critics.
This opening puts the film in the top 100 opening weekends in the UK ever at number 90, one below The Secret Life Of Pets and one above Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.
For the stars this will be by far their biggest movie to date, for director Bryan Singer it needs to beat all the X-Men movies he has directed the highest of which is X-Men Days Of Future Past, but don't rule it our just yet.
Being dumped down from the top to the number 2 position is the Lady Gaga starring movie which takes £2.1 million on its 4th weekend of release.
This brings the films total UK gross to and very good £19.2 million, the 14th highest grossing movie of 2018.
The Jamie Lee Curtis starring movie topped the charts in many places around the globe last week, except in the UK where it landed at number 2, this week it falls to number 3 with £1.6 million to brings its total to £5.8 million after 2 weeks.
