27th June 2019

Spirited Away is arguably one of director Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli best films but in 2001 when the film was originally released it was banned in China, that ban was lifted this week and the film finally got a long overdue release.

Toy Story 4

There was another animated film released this week in China, and the rest of the world, this week, Toy Story 4, a brand new animation from Pixar and the fourth film in the very successful Toy Story Series.

In most of the world Toy Story 4 has topped the box office, including most of Europe and the United States, but in China the incredible happened and the 18 year old animation beat the brand new films.

This is quite incredible, and good news for cinema and the Chinese box office, I suspect many people in China have seen the film as it has been available on home video for years, but it would seem the public want to see this film on the big screen.

Its not all bad news for the Pixar movie as it has landed on the box office at number 2, but with Spirited Away taking $27.8 Million dollars (converted) compared with $13.2 Million (converted) the Toy Story film took half that of the Japanese animation.

Here is the Chinese top 5 Box Office Weekend of 21st June 2019

  1. Spirited Away $27,842,673
  2. Toy Story 4 $13,209,667
  3. Men in Black International $5,872,709
  4. Godzilla: King of the Monsters $3,455,340
  5. My Best Summer $3,209,289

21st March 2017

Disney have done well in recent years with their live action versions of classic cartoons and this week the best of all animations gets the treatment and Beauty and The Beast opens to a massive debut.

Taking nearly £20 million on its first weekend of release it is the 8th top weekend in the UK of all time and is the highest opening outside of a franchise film.

It will be interesting to see if this is just that the animation is considered one of Disneys ultimate classics, or if the public are simply enjoying these live conversions.

Its hard comparing this to the 1992 original as its been 25 years but that film took £8.4 million on its opening, and took £20 million in total.

Adjusting for inflation the 1992's opening would be about £22 million with a total of about £52 million, potentially very similar to this live action remake.

Falling to number 2 this week is Kong: Skull Island, a £2.7 million second weekend brigs the films total to £11 million, the film is running just above its stablemate Godzilla.

Also new this week is American horror hit Get Out which lands at number 3 this week with a better than expected £2.1 million.

Longest running film on the UK box office this week is Lion starring Dev Patel which has now been around for 9 weeks while the highest total grossing movie is Sing which is still at 7 and has now grossed £28 million.

11th July 2016

This weekend the Sasha Baron Cohen movie Grimsby makes its home video debut a the top of the chart knocking off Deadpool after 2 weeks.

Grimsby was released at the UK box office on 26th February 2016 after a massive marketing campaign it made its debut at number 2.<> The film was not received that well with critics or the public alike and it only managed a 4 week run on the UK box office, but did manage another 8 weeks in cinemas before it ended its run.

Its UK box office gross was £5.2 million which isn't too bad and is fairly typical of a british box office comedy thats not a gigantic hit.

Falling to number 2 this week is the fan favourite Marvel superhero that Disney turned down Deadpool.

The film has had a great run at the top of the video chart and will most likely hang around for quite a while and get another boost when shops discount the film.

Also new this week is Zoolander No 2, the sequel everyone wanted, then no one wanted at number 5, direct to video Underworld Legend of The Jinn at 17 and Secret In Their Eyes at 18.

1st September 2015

The summer is over and so comes to an end the summer blockbuster season where the big money for films is made.

As with many years sequels and series is where the big money is and leading the way in 2015 is the return of the Jurassic Dinosaur series after 14 years away in the form of Jurassic World.

Jurassic World took £63.6 million over the summer and will probably end up being the top film of the year as well, although there is still one film which may burst its bubble.

Animation scores big again this year and the second and third biggest movies are Minions which takes £44 million and Pixar's return Inside Out which has taken £30.6 million to date.

This years sequel to Avengers Assemble may not have made the numbers that Disney were hoping but it still did very well and is the 4th top film of the summer with £30 million.

Rounding out the top 5 is a bit of a surprise with Mad Max Fury Road taking £17.1 million, the return to the Mad Max world after 30 years proving a hit with critics and the public alike.

Biggest losers of the season are Terminator Genisys which didn't excite a modern audience, Ted 2 which simple didn't bring on the laughs of the original and Magic Mike XXL which didn't live up to the erotic expectations of its core market.

Check out all the top summer films at the UK box office.

7th June 2012

As with The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be shown to the public for the first time at the Embassy Theatre Wellington in New Zealand, the date, 28th November 2012 with the world premiere of the film.

The prequel to the Rings trilogy has been a long time coming due to legal problems. Peter Jackson is directing although Guillermo del Toro was originally due to take the helm.

Another taster of the production from Peter Jackson has been released as a new video diary/blog which can be seen in HD on The Hobbit Facebook page.
