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.

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.

This week sees the return on Shia LaBeouf to the box office in The Tax Collector which makes its way onto the few hundred cinemas and drive-ins that are open across the country and takes the top spot on its debut.

There are a number of new released hitting the top 5 this week and all are available on VOD streaming services as well as at selected cinemas as seems to be the 'new normal' which the world is experiencing at the moment.

Here is a breakdown of the top 5 movies in America for weekend 7th - 9th August 2020.

The Tax Collector

Directed by David Ayer this action movie makes its debut at the top of the box office knocking The Rental from the top after residing there for a couple of weeks.

the movie takes $309.6K on its debut which is slightly higher that The Rental did last week at the top.

The Rental

The Dave Franco directed movie falls to number 2 this week after a couple of weeks at the top with $123.7K over the weekend.

The movie now joins the growing number of movies that have made over a million dollars during the COVID-19 pandemic with $1.1 Million total gross after 3 weeks of release.


Sang-ho Yeon delivers his sequel to the highly praised zombie movie Train to Busan which makes its debut on the US box office at number 3 this week with $118.6K.

The Big Ugly

The Vinnie Jones starring action movie goes back into the top 5 this week with $71.6K, the movies total US gross is $446.2K after 3 weeks of release.

Made In Italy

Liam Neeson is back in this romantic comedy directed by James D'Arcy which takes $33.9K on its debut weekend of release.

As cinemas reopen the big new films will be a while before they are released, so studios are re-releasing classic movies, and on its 40th Anniversary the BBFC have reclassified the movie a PG.

The movie, released in 1980, has been a U age rating, even on its many home entertainment released and cinema rereleased.

As guidelines the BBFC uses have changed the British classification body has reclassified the movie a PG.

At the moment Star Wars and Star Wars: The Return Of The Jedi are still U rated, but to be fair Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back has always been the darkest movie, and the nightmare cave scene and the hand cutting off scene MAY justify the new rating.

The movie is rereleased when UK cinemas reopen on July 4th, and as the 27 year old Jurassic park is currently the top movie in America who knows what will happen to the UK box office in a couple of weeks.

Bad Boys For Life spends another weekend at the top of the US box office while a new horror spin on the Grimm fairytale Hansel and Gretel gets the highest debut at number 4.

Bad Boys For Life

Three weeks ago no one would have thought the return of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence would have been such a big hit, and still be at the top of the box office, but here we are the the movie takes $17.6 Million, on a quiet Super Bowl weekend, to remain number 1.

This puts the movies total US gross at $148 Million and makes it the top grossing movie in the series to date.


The award winning movie takes top honors at the UK BAFTA awards over the weekend and remains at number 2 on the box office with $9.6 Million.

This gives the movie a total gross of $119.2 Million after 6 weeks of release.


It was a quiet weekend at the box office and Dolittle remains at number 3 with $7.7 Million giving it a $55.2 Million total gross after 3 weeks of release.

Gretel and Hansel

Highest new film of the week enters the box office at number 4 with a weekend gross of $6.05 Million.

The studios weren't going to release a tentpole picture over the same weekend of the most watched television event of the year and this horror re-telling of the Grimm fairytale fit the bill perfectly.

The Gentlemen

Falling to number 5 this weekend is Guy Ritchies latest movie which takes $6 Million on its second weekend of release pushing its total to $20.4 Million.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Its on its way out of the box office now but the Star Wars sequel movie is the top total grossing film on the box office with $507 Million over a 7 week release period.


Longest run on the box office once again goes to the SOuth Korean movie which falls to number 14 this week and has been around for 16 weeks.

Disney's sequel movie Frozen II makes its UK box office debut at the top knocking last weeks top film, Last Christmas, into second place, while Blue Story makes an impressive start to its box office run at number 3.

Frozen II

Disney bring to the screen the follow up to 2013's Frozen which opened to £4.7 Million, the new movie opens to £15..08 million which is the biggest opening weekend for an animated movie in the UK beating Pixar's Toy Story 4 from earlier in the year.

To be fair the first movie did the hard work and built up the kind of following that meant the sequel was always going to hit big on its release.

Frozen went on to gross £43 Million during its total run and there is no reason why this movie will not match, if not exceed that films total.

The films £15 Million opening is the 28th highest ever in the UK, ahead of 2003's The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King and behind 2016's Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.

Last Christmas

Last week number 1 debut movie falls to number 2 this week with £2.2 Million which considering the negative reviews is still good.

The total gross sits at £6.7 Million after 2 weeks of release.

Blue Story

Director Andrew Onwubolu marks his debut with this gritty gangland drama set in London which makes is debut at number 3 with an incredible £1.3 Million from just 310 cinemas.

Le Mans '66
