BBFC certificate breakdown.

  • BBFC age rating: 12A Certificate
  • Reason: moderate violence, threat, bloody images
  • Release date: 22nd October 2021
  • Runtime: 155m (2 hour 35 minutes)

The first trailer for the Denis Villeneuve directed Dune has been released and it looks as epic as you'd expect from the Blade Runner 2049 creator.

The book Dune was first adapted in 1984 by alternative director David Lynch, it was not well received at the time but has built a cult following over the years.

As technology has moved on and film makers are able to visualise fantastical fantasy books closer to the source material films are being remade that look stunning.

Judging from this first trailer the movie looks fantastic and as Epic a movie as you can have, every scene just looks incredible.

One of the main criticisms of the David Lynch directed version was the confusing plot, this looks like the story telling has been upped and made more accessible for the masses.

The movie is set for December 18th 2020 in the UK and US, save from any delays because of a COVID-19 spike, and looks set to be a big Christmas hit.

Two big franchises chose this weekend to release their latest episodes and despite Jigsaw which is part of the Saw series doing well Thor: Ragnarok was the clear winner.

The Disney Marvel Cinematic Universe has become a mammoth series of films that simply cant be matched at the moment and the all star Avengers cars in Thor 3 (try saying that fast) debuts with an incredible £12.3 million making it the 47th top opening in the UK ever.

The film which stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor and is directed by exciting newcomer Taika Waititi joins the ever increasing lineup of Marvel movies and the ever increasing gross for Disney.

The future for the film looks good and, this is nearly double the opening of Thor: The Dark World which went on to gross £20 million so we could have a £35 - 40 million total UK gross.

New in the runner up position is the latest Saw film, this time by the name go Jigsaw, its actually the 8th Saw movie, and opens with £1.8 million.

This is a bit of a low for the series as the average opening for a Saw movie is about £2 - 3 million, but with Halloween this week it will see a boost, but then a big slump after, it could get to £5 million in total.

After a jump back to the top Blade Runner 2049 falls to number 5 with week with £0.6 million over the weekend, after 4 weeks of release this brings the films total to £17.4 million.

Also new this weekend was Breathe, a directorial debut from Andy Serkis starring former Spider-Man Andrew Garfield, it enters at number 8.

With Despicable Me 3 making a reappearance on the UK box office it is once again the longest running film with 17 weeks and the highest total grossing movie with £47.5 million .

Historical charts

A year ago
This time last year Doctor Strange starring Benedict Cumberbatch was the top new film of the week making its debut at number 1 while Trolls fell to number 2 after a week on top.

Five years ago
The latest James Bond film Skyfall made an incredible debut at the top of the Uk box office, it knocked Madagascar 3: Europes Most Wanted from the top after a week.

Ten years ago
Ratatouille spent its third week on top while the top new film was Saw IV at number 2.

Fifteen years ago
XXX starring Vin Diesel spent a second weekend at the top while the top new film was Halloween Resurrection right down at number 5.

Twenty years ago
With The Full Monty staring on top of the box office for another weekend the top new film was The Pacemaker with George Clooney and Nicole Kidman at number 2.

Twenty five years ago
Beauty And The Beast stayed at the top for a third weekend while the top new film was 1492 Conquest Of Paradise starring Gerard Depardieu at number 2.

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.

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.
