8th May 2019

The second weekend of Avengers: Endgame and the film is still pulling in audiences and takes a lion share of the box office takings for the weekend, Long Shot comes in second but takes less than a £1 million on its debut.

Long Shot

Avengers: Endgame

The Marvel mega smash manages to pull in a mammoth £14.3 million at the UK box office on its second weekend of release, and although massive is just under the second weekend of Skyfall from 2012 which took £16.1 million.

With 2 massive weekends the film should start to slow next week, although Marvel/Disney have not slowed on the marketing and repeat visits could happen in the coming weeks.

The film will take over £100 million at the UK box office potentially beating Skyfall, but Star Wars: The Force Awakens £123 million might be a big ask.

Still the film has taken £69.3 million so far and will end up as the top film of 2019, Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker might take more but with a release date of December 19th the total gross will be split between 2 different years (2019 and 2020).

Long Shot

Avengers: Endgame was the only film to take over a million pound at the UK box office this week but the new film from director Jonathan Levine starring Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen makes its debut at number 2.

The romantic comedy takes £856,333 on its debut weekend.

The Curse Of La Llorona

Coming in at number 3 this week is the latest film from The Conjuring universe which enters the box office with a £609,555, one of the lowest of the horror franchise.

The film is Directed by Michael Chaves and stars Linda Cardellini who also appears in Avengers: Endgame and Roman Christou.

Tolkien

The bio-pic of The Lord Of The Rings series of books didn't go down too well with critics and enters the box office at number 4 this week with £550,348.

A Dogs Journey

Films based on our pets have done well in recent year and this film directed by Gail Mancuso enters the box offie at 5 with a half million pound opening.

Captain Marvel

The Marvel predecessor to Endgame is at 9 this week and has spent 9 weeks on the box office with a total gross of £39.2 million.

5th April 2019

Based on the life of J.R.R. Tolkien this Bio-Pic is directed by Dome Karukoski a Cypric director who previously brought us Beauty and the Bastard in 2005.

12A Certificate

The English author famous for writing The Lord Of The Rings is played by Nicholas Hoult and the film also stars Lily Collins.

The BBFC have given the film a 12A rating for moderate war violence and it has a runtime of 112 minutes (1 hour 42 minutes).

The film is released in the UK on 3rd May 2019.

4th July 2014

Look out for a new teaser trailer from Peter Jackson for The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies, Peter Jackson updates his Facebook Page with some details.

The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies is released in the UK on 17th December this year and will complete not only The Hobbit Trilogy of films but also the Tolkien Middle Earth saga.

25th April 2014

It's not been an easy journey for The Hobbit to reach movie status, unlike The Lord of the Rings which seem to come out of nowhere and wow us.

There were legal problems, changes in director, 2 films became 3, the third film was moved to a Christmas release and now we have title change.

Peter Jackson has announced on his Facebook page that he is going to rename the last film in his trilogy The Battle of the Five Armies.

In the post he states that Tolkien (the original author) saw There and Back Again as the full adventure, "As Professor Tolkien intended, “There and Back Again” encompasses Bilbo's entire adventure, so don't be surprised if you see it used on a future box-set of all three movies."

Anticipation is great for the third film in The Hobbit series, and probably final film from Middle Earth. The three Lord of the Rings films were huge box office hits and although The Hobbit films haven't been as big they have still earned fans across the world.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has a worldwide release on 17th December 2014.

20th December 2012

After an almost never ending saga of setbacks and 9 years after The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, director Peter Jackson takes his vision of J. R. R. Tolkien The Hobbit to the top of the box office.

Maybe because of the slightly less than favorable reviews are the reason but The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey debuts this week with a less than expected £11,601,538, still excellent but for best opening weekends that gross places it only at 33, between Pirates of the Caribbean 4 and 2, still an excellent gross but I don't think it will have a dominance over the box office like Skyfall has.

The Hobbit was nearly the only film released this week, but Disney did release Tinker Bell and the Secret of the Wings which landed at 5 with £528,82

Falling to number 2 this week is Rise of the Guardians which grossed £1,250,469 over the weekend.

A year ago Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows took the top spot with £3,827,697 on it's debut weekend knocking Arthur Christmas into third.

Five years ago The Golden Compass was still at the top with £3,002,951 while Enchanted entered at number 2 with £2,547,975.

Ten years ago Bond was still the top film with a weekend gross of £2,220,351 taking it's total to £27,078,158 while the top film was Like Mike at 4 with £246,169.
