News from around the web

Warner Bros. have announced that the much anticipated Zack Snyder version of the DC universe Justice League will get a release on HBO Max in 2021.

It has become movie folk law that the version of Justice League that was released in 2017 was directed by Zack Snyder but due to personal reason he left the project before reshoots and editing and Joss Wehdon finished the movie.

When released the film was met with muted reviews, with some fans even hating the movie.

Since then there has been first rumours then evidence, then sort of confirmation that a version of the movie exists that was finished by Snyder himself.

A social media campaign has been going since to #releasethesnydercut appearing in the trending box on twitter on regular occations.

HBO Max is a new streaming service coming on May 27th, and here we are a week before the launch and Warner Bros. announces the almost legendary film will show on the service in 2021.

The news was given during an on-line participation by Snyder on Man Of Steel and it was received with massive appreciation from fans.

This is an interesting move and perhaps not a good one, with cinemas across the globe closed and wondering if they will ever recover this could have been a nice shot in the arm the industry may need.

Instead it will go to the platform which is in the short term going to damage the cinema industry, I hope we never get to a point when we don't have movie theatres to go to.

Warner Bros Press Release

This week the flagging DC Cinematic Universe owned by Warner Bros. got a well needed kick start with Wonder Woman that not only got a fantastic opening weekend but also got good reviews.

For a new IP starring the little known Gal Gadot a £6.1 million opening is fantastic, although Chris Pine does brings some star power and the film easily takes over at the top of the UK box office.

Compared to the previous 2 films in the series, Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice and Man of Steel it is far lower but the reviews have been far better and this film could have a good run ahead of it.

With Justice League coming on November this year it could be a good year for Warner and the DC property it so wants to be a rival to Marvel Cinematic Universe but is lacking to date.

Falling from the top to number 3 this week is Pirates of The Caribbean: Salazars Revenge, a weekend take of £2 million brings the films total to £13 million.

Worth noting is for the week Monday - Sunday Pirates of The Caribbean: Salazars Revenge would have still been number 1 with a weekly take of £7.7 million.

Also making its debut this week is Baywatch, a slapstick retelling of the 90s TV show, starring Dwayne Johnson and Zak Efron the film takes £4.6 million, not bad really but not good up against a superhero movie.

This week has Smurfs The Lost Village as the longest running film with 9 weeks while Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 is the top total grossing movie with £39.6 million after 6 weeks.

Historical charts

A year ago
Warcraft made its debut at the top of the box office on its debut, and with a whole new top 3 X-Men Apocalypse fell to number 5.

Five years ago
Prometheus made its debut at the top of the UK box office while Men in Black 3 fell to number 3 on its second weekend of release.

Ten years ago
Pirates of The Caribbean: At Worlds End spent a second weekend at the top while making its debut at 2 was Wedding Daze.

Fifteen years ago
Staring at the top was Star Wars Episode II: Attack of The Clones for a third weekend while top new film was 40 Days and 40 Nights.

Twenty years ago
On its 5th weekend of release Liar Liar Went back to the top while the top new film was Absolute Power which entered at number 2, the previous weeks top film, Jungle 2 Jungle fell to number 3.

Twenty five years ago
Waynes World stayed at the top for a second weekend with the top new film being Medicine Man at number 3.

As Warner Bros. unleash the next film in its expanding DC Universe hopes are high that Wonder Woman will kick it into high gear, and with a $223 million opening from 56 countries it can be considered a success.

With man of Steel and Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice not really setting the box office alight the way many had hoped we now have the DC movie the fans have been longing for as Wonder Woman pleases critics and fans alike.

After a week atop the global box office last week Pirates of The Caribbean: Salazars Revenge falls to number 2 with $95.4 million from 55 countries, the films tepid reception with critics and fans has done the film no favours and it cant compete with a superhero juggernaut.

We will have to see if this means a slow down or end to the series, Disney has got used to $1 billion plus grosses for the series and this will most likely come no-where near that figure at the film reaches the half billion mark globally.

Making a decent debut at number 4 is Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, $24.2 million from 9 countries isn't bad for a film with little hype.

There was just one major release this week there which basically means there was inevitably going to be a new film making its debut at the top, and as predicted Warner Bros. Suicide Squad does just that.

Continuing the DC Cinematic Universe that was started in Man of Steel and Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice this film does something the Marvel/Disney have not yet dared, put the bad guys front and centre.

And audiences have lapped this up with Suicide Squad topping the UK box office with an excellent £11.2 million, nearly as big as the much more anticipated Batman V Superman from March.

That superhero movie sank quickly at the box office so we'll be watching things closely to see if it does similar.

Worth noting is that if the chart listing was taken over the whole week then Finding Dory would sit at the top with £12 million.

Highest total grossing on this weeks top 10 is The Secret Life of Pets which has now grossed over £32 million, while longest stay on the box office is The Angry Birds Movie with 11 weeks.

A year ago
The Fantastic Four reboot made its debut at the top of the box office knocking Mission:Impossible Rogue Nation down to number 2.

Five years ago
Four weeks in and Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2 was still number 1 leaving JJ Abrams Super 8 to debut at number 2.

Ten years ago
TV show turned movie Miami Vice made its debut at the top knocking Cars down to number 2.<> Fifteen years ago
Cats and Dogs made its debut a the top of the box office knocking Jurassic Park III from the top which fell to number 3.

Twenty years ago
Twister remained at the top for a second week leaving James and The Giant Peach to make its debut at number 2.

Twenty five years ago
Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves was at top for another week while the top new film came in at number 2 in the shape of Backdraft.

As expected the movie version of Mrs. Browns Boys took the top spot at the UK box office, and with quite a strong margin over the rest.

On it's debut weekend Mrs. Brown's Boys D'Movie took an incredible £4.3 million, far higher than expected and proving that the Irish sit-com has quite a following.

I suspect that this is a fairly front loaded event and we could see it fall quite sharply, I dont think it has the lasting appeal of movie like The Inbetweeners Movie.

Falling to the runner up spot this week is The Fault in our stars which made £1.7 million from the weekend bringing it's 10 day gross to £6.7 million.

Other new film to chart this week are:
Chef at 5
How to Train Your Drans 2 (still only on previews) at 6
Walking on Sunshine at 7
Cold in July at 11
Ek Villain at 12
Punjab 1984 at 13

This time last year Despicable Me 2 hit the top of the box office on it's debut week of release, it would go on to be the top film in the UK of 2013, it knocked Man of Steel into 2nd place.

Five years ago Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was still the top film in the UK and Year One with Jack Black was the highest new film at 3.

Ten years ago it was still Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban at the top while the top new film of the week was Tom Hanks on Lady Killers at 4.

Fifteen years ago Brendan Fraser made a big screen comeback in The Mummy which debuted at the top of the box office knocking The Matrix into the runner up spot after only a week.
