Hercules 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.

Blade Runner 2049 might not have set the box office on fire when it was released 3 weeks ago but it has managed something not many film do and go back to the top of the chart after being knocked off.

It was a relatively quiet weekend at UK cinemas and the Blade runner sequel took £1.8 million to go back on top, nearly 50% down on last weekend.

This means the film has now managed £12.7 million on its UK run, its hard to put this in context of the original movie which 3 weeks in had made £0.8 million.

If take inflated ticket prices into play then the original would have made £4.3 million at this stage so the sequel is over £10 million ahead.

Highest new film of the week, and despite the appalling reviews, is Geostorm starring Gerard Butler, which enters at number 2 with £1.6 million.

The weather disaster movie is a typical summer blockbuster movie so being released so late in the year probably meant the studio had little faith in the film.

Last weeks top film, The Lego Ninjago Movie, falls to number 3 this week with £1.3 million and a total gross so far of £5.5 million.

We have a change of longest running and top total grossing film this week with IT being around for 7 weeks and grossed a total of £32 million.

Historical charts

A year ago
Animated film Trolls took over at the top from The Girl On The Train which fell to number 3 after 2 weeks on top.

Five years ago
Madagascar 3: Europes Most Wanted was the top new film of the week entering the box office at number 1 while Taken 2 fell to number 3 after 2 weeks on top.

Ten years ago
Ratatouille spent a second weekend at the top while the top new film of the week was Stardust starring Claire Danes and Michelle Pfeiffer.

Fifteen years ago
Vin Diesel starred in XXX which was the top new film of the week at number 1 while Lilo and Stitch fell to number 2 after 2 weeks at the top.

Twenty years ago
Hercules spent its second weekend at the top while top new film was Shooting Fist at number 2.

Twenty five years ago
The animated Beauty and The Beast spent its second weekend on top while top new film Strictly Ballroom entered at number 2.

With the slow box office of Blade Runner 2049 the UK chart sees a new number 1 in the shape of The Lego Ninjago Movie, but it was a battle for the top.

Its the third movie based on the lego franchise and each one has made its debut at the top, but The Lego Ninjago Movie has done so with the lowest opening.

With £3.6 million there is the feeling that the general public are starting to get used to seeing the Lego franchise on the big screen and are maybe waiting for home video before watching.

Regardless this is still a number one film and with a sequel to the original Lego Movie coming soon you can imagine that being a box office hit as well.

Blade Runner 2049 falls from the top to number 2 this week, but with a £3 million weekend it fought hard to stay on top.

The full week gross was £6.1 million so it easily was the top film of the week, the total gross currently sits at £12.1 million.

Also new this week is The Snowman at number 3 with a weekend gross of £1.3 million and Botoks is new at 5 with nearly £0.8 million.

The Ritual is new at number 7 with and the highly acclaimed movie Loving Vincent is new at number 9, Sally Potter just creeps into the top 10 at 10 as The Party makes its debut.

Despicable Me 3 has now been on the box office for 16 weeks and has a total gross of £47 million.

Twenty years ago

Twenty five years ago
The original animated version of Disney's Beauty and The Beast made its debut at the top while Patriot Games fell to number 3 after a couple of weeks at the top.

Pixar didn't release a cinematic film in 2014 so the new film from the animated studio was going to be a big deal, and Inside Out is critically one of their best and makes an impressive UK box office debut.,p> Entering the chart at the top Inside Out takes in £7.3 million on it's debut, compared to their last film Monsters University this was over double its debut.

It is though way behind the leader in the Pixar crown, Toy Story 3 which took an incredible £21 million on it's debut and went on to become one of the highest grossing animation of all time.

Inside Out has a good start and is inline with Finding Nemo from 2003, it will easily go over the £30 million mark in the coming days.

Last weeks top film, Ant-Man, falls to number 2 this week with a £2.5 million weekend gross raising its total to £9.6.

One other new entry on the top 10 this week is Southpaw new at 4 with £1.6 million.
