A new trailer and poster has been released for the much delayed (pandemic related) retelling of West Side Story directed by Steven Spielberg.

The movie is a retelling of the stage show of the same name which was also adapted by director Robert Wise is 1961.

The new version stars Ansel Elgort amd Rachel Zegler as Tony and Maria as the star crossed lovers.

The movie is set for release on 10th December 2021 after being delayed a year.

There is also a new poster which you can see below.

Sacha Baron Cohen stars once again in the sequel to Borat which has been given a 15 age rating in the UK by the BBFC.

The movie follows on 14 years after the original and the intrepid reporter is given the task going back to America to repair the reputation of Kazakstan which he destroyed previously.

In a similar vein to the original this is portrayed as half movie and half fly-on-the-wall documentary, and the actor tries to get 'real' people to behave in outrageous ways for the sake of entertainment.

Baron Coen is joined by Maria Bakalova in a career changing stint as his daughter to sows herself away to join him on his journey.,/p>

The movie is released directly to Amazon Prime after Universal couldn't find a theatrical window during the COVD-19 pandemic.

Here is the BBFC certificate breakdown.

  • Age rating: 15
  • Runtime: 96 minutes (1 hour 36 minutes)
  • Reason for age rating: strong sex references, crude humour, discrimination, very strong language
  • Release date: 23rd October 2020
  • The movie was passed uncut

Todd Phillips directed Joked makes its box office debut at the top of the chart as it removes Downton Abbey after a 3 weeke spell while Judy manages a number 2 debut.


Starring Joaquin Phoenix the new villain movie from the DC Universe hits the top of the box office on its debut with an excellent £12.5 Million weekend.

This meakes the film the 57th top opening film in the UK ever, beating The Inbetweeners 2 and coming in behind The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.

With such a big opening expect the films gross to be one of DC's better grosses and with good reviews and Oscar potential this movie could run well into next year.


Renée Zellweger gives what critics are calling an Oscar worthy performance in the bio-pic movie of Judy Garland which opens at number 2 with a very respectable £2 Million.

Again with good reviews and mentions of Oscars this Rupert Goold directed movie could have a very good run in the UK.

Downton Abbey

The British high class movie falls from the top to number 3 on its 4th weekend of release with £1.4 Million giving the film a £23.1 Million total, the film is now the 10th highest grossing of 2019.


The surprise film of the autumn falls to number 4 this weekend with £590,645 but the Lorene Scafaria directed movie had taken £6.1 Million in the UK.

Ad Astra

The Brad Pitt starring space drama falls to number 5 this weekend with £467,983 after 3 weeks of release, but the films £5.5 Million total is very respectable.

The Lion King

The British public can't get enough of Disney's animated remake and this week if the top total grossing movie on the box office with £75 Million, after 12 weeks of release it is still at number 6!

Toy Story 4

Also from Disney is the longest run on this weeks box office as the Pixar film notches up a 16th weekend, the film has taken £65 Million so far.

The Todd Phillips directed Joker hits the top of the US box office ahead of expectation and breaks the American October debut record while Abominable falls to number 2.


Starring Joaquin Phoenix as the title character the DC villain movie has had its fair share of controversy, but good reviews, especially the performance of Phoenix has helped it to a $96.2 Million debut weekend.

This beats the record for the top October opening, held by last years superhero villain movie Venom, which took $80.3 Million this weekend last year.

This is a very different film and with Oscar potential for lead actor this could have a good run.


The animated movie from Dreamworks falls from the top to number 2 this weekend with a gross of $11.2 Million.

This takes the well received films total gross after 2 weeks to $37.7 Million.
