As promised yesterday Pixar and Disney have released the first trailer for their upcoming Italian inspired movie Luca.

The movie is set in the Northern part of Italy and is set in and around around the ligurian culture and its people.

The story is based around two young friends who have a deep secret that when water touches them they turn into sea monsters, it is based on Northern Italian folklore which the director grey up hearing.

The movie is directed by Enrico Casarosa who was an artist on Pixar's Coco and you can tell in this trailer as it just spills with the same style and feeling of that movie.

The movie is voiced by Jacob Tremblay and Jack Dylan Grazer in starring roles and is released on June 18th - the trailer doesn't say if it will be theatrical or Disney+!

The top 15 movies in the UK this week failed to take over £100,000 as much of the UK is experiencing new lockdowns and many cinemas will have been closed on Friday, Christmas Day.

Wonder Woman 1984 retained its position at the top of the box office with ease and is responsible for 77% of this weeks box office total takings and as there were no new releases we have a fairly static top 5.

Worthy of note this week is that the number 15 movie, Michael Ball & Alfie Boe: Back Together, only took £548 and the movie with the lowest weekly from was Peter Duncan Presents Jack And The Beanstalk which dropped 60% from last weekend.
