Looking like a true sequel to 1986's Rocky IV this sequel to 2016's Creed puts Apollo Creed's Son against Ivan Drago's son.

12A Certificate

For those who don't remember Ivan Drago killed Apollo Creed in the ring before being defeated by Rocky Balboa at the end of the film.

The BBFC have given Creed II a 12A rating for moderate violence, language and the film has a run time of 130 minutes (2hrs 10 Minutes).

Following on from its stablemate The Lego Movie from 3 years ago The Lego Batman Movie enters the UK box office at the top beating out Fifty Shades Darker in the process.

The Lego Movie opened this same weekend in 2014 to just over £8 million and The Lego Batman Movie has almost done exactly the same with opening to just under £8 million.

The Lego Movie went on to be the top grossing movie of 2014 with £37 million, time will tell with The Lego Batman Movie, this are looking good but we have a number of big franchise movies coming this year which could get in its way.

Fifty Shades of Grey opened in 2015 to £13.5 million over a valentines weekend, this week Fifty Shades Darker opens to £7 million at number 2, but not a valentines weekend, next week will be a tell time for the movie.

Sing falls down to number 3 this week with £2.3 million which brings the films total gross in the UK to £18 million.

Highest total grossing movie on the box office this week is La La Land which has now taken £26.4 million while the longest running film is Trolls which re-enters the chart and spends its 14th week in total.

Jackie Chan is one of, if not the top grossing and most well know star in China and his vehicle Kung Fu Yoga tops the global box office this week.

Now released in 12 countries the film takes $51.4 million for the week which brings the films total gross to $178 million.

With Chinese films dominating the top 3 Split is sitting pretty at number 4 this week and highest new film of the week is Rings at number 5.

Released in 32 countries the latest film from the Ring franchise tajes $28.2 million from its debut weekend which is split almost half and half with America and the rest of the world.

Highest total grossing movie on the global top 10 is Sing which has now made a total global gross of $487 million.

6th February 2017

M. Night Shyamalan must be pleased to be back in favour again, a fantastic start to his career and apart from a couple of bad moments he’s had a critic bashed run of films until now.

Split spends its third consecutive weekend at the top of the US box office although hit was the Super Bowl weekend which means Sunday had little to no impact on the box office.

This weekend the film took $14.6 million which brings its total gross to $98.7 million, it will reach $100 million before next weekend.

Highest new film of the weekend is the reboot of the gone stale Rings franchise, the last film was The Ring Two released in 2005.

The new take brings the film up to date and takes $13 million on its opening weekend of release, 14 years after The Ring this is a lower opening gross which doesn’t bode well for the film.

Highest total grossing film on the US top 10 this week is Sing, at number 7 this week with $262 million in total gross.

1st February 2017

Making its debut on the UK box office this week is Sing which lands at the top knocking off La La Land, and in a surprise move keeps of T2 Trainspotting.

Sing is an animated feature from the same stable as Despicable Me and features the voice talent from the likes of Matthew McConaughey and Reece Witherspoon.

The film makes its debut with a rather spectacular £10.4 million debut weekend which makes it the 66 top opening of all time.

Sing replaces La La Land which falls to number 3 this week with a £3.1 million 3rd weekend and a £20.9 million total UK gross.

Missing out on the top spot is the highly anticipated T2 Trainspotting which lands at number 2, the film is an 18 rating so the audience compared to Sing is limited, but £5.1 million is good and any other week would have easily seen the film enter at the top.

Also new this week is Hacksaw Ridge from director Mel Gibson at number 5 with £1.4 million and Rahm at number 7 with £521,000.

Highest total grossing film on the UK box office this week is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story which after 7 weeks has grossed £65.2 million while the longest running film is Trolls with 13 weeks.

25th January 2017

The UK is still Ga Ga for La La Land and on its second weekend of release the film manages to keep hold of the number 1 spot holding off new film Split.

A fantastic second weekend gross of £4.3 million is enough to keep the film at the top which brings the films total gross to a very good £14.9 million.

Making its debut in the UK is Split which enters the UK at number 2 with a weekend gross of £2.5 million.

Its been a while since director M. Night Shyamalan had a big hit at the box office and it looks like he may have one here.

Favourable reviews will keep the film bringing in cinema goers and despite the fact that the film missed the top it will still do well.

Also new this week is xXx The Return of Xander Cage at number 3 with £1.6 million and Lion which makes its debut at number 4 with £1.2 million.

Longest running film this week is Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which has now been on the box office for 10 weeks and the highest grossing film is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story which is now on £64.3 million.

The world is going mad for La La Land as the strong Oscar contender conquers the UK box offfice on its debut weekend of release removing Assasins Creed in the process.

Its cleaning up at the awards ceremonies and is expected to do well at both the Oscars and the BAFTA's this month, and the UK takes it to the top of the box office with a very good gross of £6.5 million.

Taking a bit of a hit is last weeks top film Assasins Creed which falls from its top slot debut down to number 4 this week, a weekend gross of £0.9 million brings the total to just shy of £10 million.

Also new this week is Machester By The Sea starring Casey Affleck at 6 and Live by Night directed by and starring Ben Affleck at number 7.

Also new at number 9 is The Bye Bye Man and perhaps a little dissapointing at number 11 is Underworld Blood Wars.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is the longest running film on the chart with a 9 week run and highest total grossing film is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story with £62.7 million.

10th January 2017

The debut of video game adaptation Assasins Creed produces the first new number one film of 2017 knocking off Rogue One: A Star Wars Story after 3 weeks at the top.

Starring Michael Fassbender as the time travelling assassin the film based on a video game debuts at the top with £5.2 million including previews.

As a star one one of the biggest movie franchises around this is by no means the highest debut gross for Fassbender, but it is good for a non franchise debut, for director Justin Kurzel it is his best grossing film to date.

Its unclear if Assassins Creed will continue to do well, it got bad reviews from the press and the audience for these films is usually front loaded so it could drop sharp in the coming weeks.

Falling from the top after 3 weeks is Rogue One although the film enjoyed a decent fourth week gross of £3.2 million which brings its total gross in the UK to £59.6.

The film wont reach the heights of The Force Awakens but this is still a great total gross, also worth a note is that the Monday - Sunday gross of £7.6 million would have put it at number 1.

Also making its debut this week is A Monster Calls at 3 with £2 million and Silence at number 4 with £1.5 million.

Rogue One is the highest total grossing film around at the moment and the longest running film this week is Storks at number 15 which has been around now for 10 weeks.

4th January 2017

The last box office chart of the year and Rogue One A Star Wars Story is still the top film across the country for a third straight week while top new film Why Him? comes in at number 2.

With a weekend gross that is showing only a gradual slow down Rogue One takes £5.9 million, this brings the films total gross to £52 million and makes it the highest grossing film released in 2016 in the UK.

Its still not the highest grossing film in the calendar year 2016 with Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens £5 million ahead but for Disney/Lucasfilms to have a the one and two position of the year its been a great year for Star Wars.

Highest new entry of the week entering at 2 is the James Franco comedy Why Him? which takes a very respectable £2.1 million.

For a not franchise film and with Franco as the main headline this is actually a good debut, but with little publicity and very little word of mouth the film could sink fast.

Highest total grossing film is Rogue One while longest running film this week is The Secret Life of Pets which has now been in cinemas for 15 weeks and this week is at number 15.

31st December 2016

A little late reporting on this weeks charts with the figures arriving the following weekend due to the Christmas break.

UK audiences were in the mood for the Galaxy Far Far Away over the Christmas week with Rogue One staying at the top, maybe a fitting tribute as we said goodbye to Princess Leah.

With the new coming in over the festive period that actress Carrie Fisher sadly passed away what better tribute to pay than keeping Rogue One: A Star Wars Story at number one with £5.6 million on its second weekend.

This brings the films total gross to £33.9 million, an excellent gross in normal circumstances but this is a star wars film and the film is falling far short of last years Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

Highest new entry of the week is Passengers which after bad reviews still manages to land at number 2 with £2.4 million.

Both stars Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are involved with high grossing franchises so this is by no means a big opening for them and with the no so good reviews the film could sink quite quick.

Longest running film on the chart this week is Trolls which has been around for 10 weeks not and highest total grossing movie is Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which has now grossed £47,469,530 after 6 weeks.

7th September 2016

After a fairly lacklustre summer season of 2016 where the highlight was a bunch of anti-heroes in the shape of the Suicide Squad, will the Autumn schedule deliver?

We had high hopes but had few thrills, out side of the DC movie Suicide Squad Ghostbusters gave us a good laugh but didn't deliver as expected Finding Dory pulled in the audiences but left us flat.

The rest of the year has some highlights but there is caution as the 2 biggest films are both sequels outside of their parent film series.

Before we even get to them in the latter part of the year we have a number of promises, Captain Fantastic starring Viggo Mortensen looks promising and American hit Kubo and The Two String gives a refreshing animation outside Disney.

Of course we have British favourite Bridget Jones's Baby which is getting good reviews at the moment and a bit after that the recently announced Blair Witch remake/reboot/sequel.

Getting a lot of marketing hype is the remake/retelling of The Magnificent Seven and the looking promising, and a return to form for Tim Burton is Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children.

Tom Hanks returns to detective mode for a third time in Inferno, although I didn't like the previous 2 films and then another sequel emerges mid October with Tom Cruise in Jack Reacher Never Go Back.

Marvel return to their cinematic universe with a new hero in the shape of Doctor Strange and another sequel/reboot come in early November with Rings, the next in (surprise) The Ring series.

After the hotly anticipated Arrival starring Amy Adams arrives the season kicks up a gear with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the first move into the Wizarding World outside Harry Potter.

The film, penned by J. K. Rowling, is being hyped to death and not surprisingly, the 8 Potter films did fantastic business at the box office and this is directed by series expert David Yates whic just seems to get the ideas Rowling writes about.

Warner Bros. will be hoping this shows there is still life in the seemingly dormant series and please fans of the original and set up a new generation, 2 more film are already planned.

After that injection things go quiet with unwanted sequel Bad Santa 2 and Tom Hanks (again) in Scully the story of the pilot who landed a plane on the Hudson River.

Then to finish the year off another much lover series goes off piste with Rogue One A Star Wars Story, taking place just before the events of the original Star Wars.

The trailer have looked good and after the excellence of Star Wars: The Force Awakens expectation are massive.

This is a massive risk for Lucasfilms and Disney, and it will either boost the series to height never imagined or will do to the series what Episodes I - III did and nearly kill it, fortunately it has recovered!

To round the rear off we have Michael Fassbender trying to do what many other have failed to do and bring a video game series to the screen in Assassins Creed.

14th April 2015

It's proving to be the runaway hit of moment as Fast and Furious 7 speeds ahead of the rest of the field as it produces another £5.4 million over the weekend.

This gives Furious 7 a total UK gross after 2 weekends of £26.2 million, the film is fast catching the years highest grossing movie, Fifty Shades of Grey, which has taken £34.6 million.

With little in the way of new releases next week Furious 7 could well stay at the top until the release of Avengers Age Of Ultron at the end of April.

Highest new film of the week is American teen comedy/drama The DUFF, new at 4 with £891,691, not a great start!

The other new films this week maybe underperformed and all entered at the lower end of the chart, John Wick at 6, Woman In Gold at 7 and Paul Blart Mall Cop 2 at 8.

8th April 2015

In what became fantastic weekend gross Fast and Furious 7 makes it's debut at the top of the UK box office with ease, although last weeks top film still does decent numbers.

Furious 7 took an excellent £12.7 million over the Easter weekend and in the process not only became the top film in the motoring franchise but is also the 31st highest film debut in the UK.

Having a debut similar to that of a Hunger games film or Inbetweener Movie will see the film gross over £30 million in the UK, and in comparison it's near the debut of Fifty Shades of Grey which has so far made £34 million.

Last weeks top film, Cinderella, takes nearly £3 million for the weekend placing at 2 with it's total UK gross now at just over £10 million.

Also new this week are The Water Diviner at 7 and While We're Young at number 8.

Also making an appearance due to screening by the BFI is the 1982 Ridley Scott sci-fi classic Blade Runner which has taken £267,452 over the weekend.

Today looks to be a day that should be celebrated as it mark the time that casting on The Hobbit is finally complete, Billy Connolly will be taking on the role of Dain Ironfoot who is a great drawf warrior in the story. Here we are 6 months into production, the first trailer released 6 weeks ago and casting is complete!

The anticipation for The Hobbit is building up to such an extent that I for one am starting to feel like this year can't be over with quick enough, and in the mean time we have a number of great films to enjoy.

In case you haven't been keeping up The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: There And Back Again is the 2 part screen adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's book The Hobbit, a prequel to The Lord of the Ring Trilogy the Peter Jackson brought to life in 3 spectacular films starting back in 2001.

Normally with a film getting this much hype and anticipation I'd be nervous that it could never live up to the hype, but watching the rings trilogy today is still as enjoyable and judging from the trailer for The Hobbit this will absolutely great.

Roll on December 14th when we'll finally be able to judge for ourselves whether Peter Jackson still have that gift or not.

25th January 2012

This week War Horse remains at the top of the UK box office chart while the highest new film is Haywire.

21st December 2011

As expected, mainly because it was pre-announced, the first trailer, and true glimpse, of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has gone live on iTunes today. The Hobbit in case you don't know is the prequel to The Lord of the Rings Trilogy that director Peter Jackson brought to the big screen in the early 2000's.

The production has had a difficult time but destiny chose Peter Jackson to direct the movies which are shooting in New Zealand probably as we speak. The first of the 2 films is probably the most anticipated film of next year (sorry Batman).

Of course the good thing about Jackson returning as director is that the connection between The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings couldn't be stronger and most of the cast from the original films are back, and to open up this teaser we have Ian Holm, the original Bilbo Baggins doing a voice over. The trailer certainly ticks all the boxes, we see Frodo (Elija Wood), we see Bilbo young and old (young played by Martin Freeman who looks incredible) we see Gandolf (Ian McKellen) looking the same as he did in the Rings Trilogy. We get introduced to all the gang that will be in the new film, accompanied by a song!

What astounds me the most is that besides some clear productions values what will get sorted before release this just simply looks like it could have been part of the original Trilogy, it simply loks that good. To top things off we get to see briefly the Ring from the original series and Golum. Watch it, it's great, and there is only a year before we get to see the full feature. Also scroll down the page as the first poster for the film has also been released. Oh and check out the trailer here on iTunes.
