The tiny superhero had a debut weekend gross of £4 million from 555 sites, below other Marvel superhero films but for one of the less known characters and a new franchise a good opening.

A decent run over the school summer holidays could see a total gross in the high 20's into low 30 million region.

Falling into second place are the Minions, a £2.7 million gross has extended their total to £32 million, with plenty more to go over the summer this could be one of the highest grossers of the year.

The first poster hit last week for Oblivion which was a great looking one sheeter and got us intrigued for this new Tom Cruise film, now the first trailer hits and gives us some clue to the story and tone of the film.

This is Cruise back in sci-fi territory for the first time since he was directed by Steven Spielberg in War of the Worlds back in 2005.

Take a look at the trailer below, it looks like Cruise will be in full action mode for 2013, starting with Jack Reacher out soon (actually just about has a 2012 release date of 26th December) and Oblivion released April 12th 2013.
