Up A U film should be suitable for audiences aged four years and over, although it is impossible to predict what might upset any particular child.

U films should be set within a positive framework and should offer reassuring counterbalances to any violence, threat or horror. If a work is particularly suitable for pre-school children, this will be indicated in the ratings info.

News from around the web

Godzilla Vs. Kong has a second high grossing weekend and retains the top spot on the US box office and with no studios releasing any big movies the top new film is Voyagers at number 5.

As confidence grows in the industry with the success Warner Bros. is having with the bog monster movie more hits are coming in the weeks ahead and studios are starting to reschedule their much delayed potential blockbusters.

Here is the US box office QuickView

  • Number 1 - Godzilla Vs. Kong (2nd Week)
  • Highest debut - Voyagers (@5)
  • Longest run - The Croods: A New Age (20 weeks)

Here is a breakdown of the top 5 movies at the US box office 9th - 11th April 2021.

Godzilla Vs. Kong

Godzilla Vs. Kong

Warner Bros. must be finally pleased that one of their movies is re-starting the US box office after the closures of the global pandemic, they tries with Tenet at the end of the summer last year which failed but the big monster fight movie is hitting the right spot.

On its second weekend of release the movie takes a remarkable $13.38 Million, although this is a drop of 72% over last weekend, a higher drop than you would normally see for a big grossing debut.

The film has taken a very good, for the pandemic era, $69.5 Million since its release and is the top grossing movie in America for 2021.


Another film which is enjoying success is the former number one movie which climbs back to number 2 this weekend with $2.65 Million, only 14% down from last weekend.

This gives the movie a $15.6 Million total gross from 3 weeks of release.

The Unholy~2021

Despite the poor reviews for this Evan Spiliotopoulos directed film, and falling to number 3 this weekend, this horror movie is enjoying some surprise success.

This weekend the film takes $2.4 Million, a 25% drop from last weekend, which takes its gross to $6.73 Million on its second weekend of release.

Raya and the Last Dragon

Disney's latest animated feature is still doing well on the box office and after 6 weeks of release it takes $2.14 Million, up 4% from last weekend, for a total of $35.24 Million.



Highest new movie of the week lands at number 5 as director Neil Burger scores a top 5 movie with an debut gross of $1.35 Million.

Action movie Nobody tops this weeks North American box office which is written by Derek Kolstad who also wrote the original John Wick movie.

Nobody is the only new entry on the top 15 this weekend as the rest of the charts more or less remain the same with little to no movement although worthy of mention is Minari which jumps up 11 to 9, Promising Young Woman

that jumps up 15 to 12 and News of the World which re-enters the top 15 at 15.

US box office QuickView

  • Number 1 - Nobody (1st weekend)
  • Highest debut - Nobody (@1)
  • Longest run - The Croods: A New Age (18 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - The Croods: A New Age ($56 Million)

US box office top 5 breakdown 26th - 28th March 2021



Making its debut a the top this weekend is the latest movie from director Ilya Naishuller which stars Bob Odenkirk as an ordinary clean living American who has a deadly secret.

THe movie takes a very good $6.8 Million over the weekend which is by means the top movie of the pandemic era but is very good all the same.

Raya and the Last Dragon

Disneys his animated feature falls to number 2 this weekend after 3 weeks at the top with a gross of $3.76 Million, down only 27% from last weekend.

The movie has been on the box office for 4 weeks now and has taken $28.56 Million.

Tom and Jerry

The animated cat and mouse duo fall to number 3 this weekend with $2.5 Million, a 34% drop over last weekend.

The movie has done far better than expected during the pandemic, as have many kids movies, and has taken $37.1 Million after 5 weeks.

Chaos Walking

Chaos Walking

Another movie which has done better than you'd have thought falls to number 4 this weekend with $1.2 Million, 37% down from last weekend, this gives the movie a total of $11.49 Million after 4 weeks.

The Courier~2021

Finally on the top 5 is the Benedict Cumberbatch starring movie which on its second weekend of release takes $1.05 Million, down 44%, giving the movie a $3.48 Million total.

Hitting today is the new trailer for the James Gunn directed The Suicide Squad which gives a new and refreshing take on the comic book villain series.

The 2016 version of the source material directed by David Ayer was an interesting and enjoyable, but ultimately flawed, version of the ani-heroes that came out in the midst of the Zack Snyder take on the DC Universe.

That time has passed, and the DC Universe has largely moved on and now James Gunn, who brought us the Marvel Cinematic Universe The Guardians of the Galaxy, takes on the misfit group headed up once again by Margot Robbie who reprises her role as Harley Quinn for a third time.

The comedy here seems slapstick, and the red band trailer hints that this might be a bit more adult than the 2016 take.

There is a hint of '80's action TV show here and I couldn't help but think of The A-Team or Knight Rider as I watched, but still its enjoyable if a bit childish at times.

A new poster (see below) has also been released which backs up this 80's TV show, or Grindhouse cinema, feel.

The Suicide Squad

The movie hits streaming and cinemas across the world with a release date of 6th August 2021 in the UK and USA.

Long overdue for a release the Doug Liman directed Sci-Fi movie finally gets a release in the Uk on April 2nd and is given a 12 age rating in the UK by the BBFC. 12 Age Rating

The movie stars Tom Holland of Spider-Man fame and Daisy Ridley of Star Wars fame and follow a young woman who crash lands her space ship on a planet where you can visually see the thoughts of men.

Chaos Walking is a young adult science fiction series written by novelist Patrick Ness, the first was published in 2008 and was called The Knife of Never Letting Go.

Story synopsis

In Prentisstown, Todd has been brought up to believe that the Spackle released a germ that killed all the women and unleashed Noise on the remaining men.

After discovering a patch of silence out in the swamp, his surrogate parents immediately tell him that he has to run, leaving him with only a map of New World, a message, and many unanswered questions. He soon discovers the source of the silence: a girl, named Viola.

Disney have taken their time to decide how to release the Marvel movie Black Widow starring Scarlett Johansson but today they have moved the movie from May 7th to July 9th and as well as movie theatres will release the movie to Disney+ Premier Access, so an extra £19.99 ($30 in America) per movie on top of your monthly cost!

With cinemas in the UK set to re-open mid May this a needed delay, although this now gives the movie a clash with Top Gun: Maverick so we could see a move there soon as well.

Black Widow

This new release date for Black Widow means also on the move is another Marvel movie, Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which changes from July 9th to September 3rd, same day as Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City.

The Pixar movie Luca will still release on June 18th but will go directly to Disney+, interestingly not the extra cost Premier Access, a surprise movie as kids movies have done very well during the lockdowns?

Also on the move are Free Guy starring Ryan Reynolds which changes May 21st to August 13th, which means The King's Man is changing August 20th to December 22nd, currently the same day as Jon Chu's screen adaptation of Wicked and Kenneth Branagh's Death on the Nile which moves September 17th 2021 to February 11th 2022, currently the same day as video game adaptation Uncharted.


Finally the 101 Dalmatians prequel movie Cruella will still get a May 28th release but as well as a theatrical release will get a Disney+ with Premier Access, so yes the extra £19.99 ($30 in America).

This is a movie Disney had to make, especially for Black Widow with its much delayed release. Cinemas across the world are staring to open up as the pandemic gets under control with the rollout of the vaccine doing well, lets hope this is the last move for these movies.

With cinemas set to open in the UK around May 17th the return of the box office is still a couple of months away but getting close.

If your fed up with these moves, heres Ryan Reynolds to put a light hearted spin on it all.

NOTE: The price of Disney+ Premier Access is based on previous releases and could change at anytime.
