Cars 2 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.

At the US box office this weekend Pixar released its latest offering Cars 3 and although it took the top spot is was a relatively low opening for the animation studio at $53.5 million.

For a Cars film it was lower than either Cars or Cars 2, for a Pixar movie it was lower than all their films but Ratatouille.

Lightning McQueen and the gang have never been one of Pixar’s popular characters despite this being the third film and they have a themed area at Disneys California Adventure. so clearly someone at Pixar likes them.

Wonder Woman slips to second place on its third week of release, although it is still performing well with a $40.7 million weekend.

The total US gross of the film now sits at $274 million and will easily get to $300 million and has $400 million in its sights.

Also new this week is All Eyez On Me at number 3 with $27 million and 47 Meters Down at number 5 with $11.5 million, Rough Night also makes a new entry at number 7, the film had high hopes.

Longest running film and highest grossing film this week is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, 7 weeks and $374 million.

There became a bit of a battle for the top of the box office this week as the much loved children's classic The BFG went up agains the much loved Star Trek franchise.

In the end Roald Dahl and Steven Spielberg won with The BFG as it takes the number 1 spot on its debut weekend of release with a very respectable £5.3 million

The film was considered a flop in the US but the stories are considered classics in the UK and parents have passed down books from generation to generation and this is reflected in the box office.

Almost as much loved, and celebrating 50 years this year is Star Trek, and to celebrate we have Star Trek Beyond which this week makes its debut at 2.

A weekend take of £4.7 million wasn't enough to see it debut at the top, and even more worrying is this is half as much as Star Trek Into Darkness, and lower than the original reboot.

The positive reviews may help the path ahead but this is definitely a diminishing series and with a fourth film already planned who knows what the future holds.

Also new this week are André Rieu's 2016 Maastricht Concert which had a couple of shows this last weekend is new at 3.

Historical charts

A year ago
This time last year Pixars Inside Out made its debut at the top of the box office knocking Ant-Man into second place.

Five years ago
Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2 made it a second week at the top while the top new film was Cars 2 at number 2.

Ten years ago
For a second weekend Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Mans Chest was the top film while the highest new film was The Break UP at number 2.

Fifteen years ago

New at the top was Jurassic Park III while Shrek fell from the top into second place.

Twenty year ago

Disneys The Hunchback of Notre Dame made its debut at the top leaving Mission:Impossible to fall into second place.

Twenty five years ago
Kevin Coster was the big star of the era and debuted Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves at the top of the charts after lots of hype, while Thelma and Louise fell to number 3.

Absolutely no surprise at all that The Dark Knight Rises is the biggest film of the week, and the £14 Million debut weekend is as expected.

The tragedy that took place in America on Thursday night at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises does not seem to have affected the box office over here with a weekend take of £ 14,362,443 it is very close to to 2008's The Dark Knight which opened just north of £11 million. The best opener of the year is still Avengers Assemble nearly £16 Million.

With the release of the new Batman film there were no other new films this week but last weeks top film Ice Age Continental Drift still does the numbers and has a weekend of £ 2,112,021.

This time last year Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was still at the top having taken £ 44,271,997 in 2 weeks while Pixars Cars 2 was the top new release with £3,541,664 at 2.

Five years ago Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix was still at the top with a total gross of £30,062,094 after 2 weeks and the remake of John Walters Hairspray was the highest new film at 2 with £2,045,912.

Ten years ago Scooby Doo was still top with a gross of £9,420,817 and with the top 2 staying the same the highest new film was Stuart Little 2 at 3 with a take of £1,343,398.

Steve Jobs dies aged 56

6th October 2011

It is with much sadness to write about the passing of Apple founder Steve Jobs, as an almost obsessive follower of technology he has been one of a selected few who has given me something to think about for the last 10 years.

Lets not forget also the incredible effect he has had on the film industry. Jobs in 1988 saw a computer graphics company that George Lucus was going to close down, bought it for $10 million dollars and not only created one of the greatest film studios the world has seen, but also created a studio which has brought some of the best loved characters of the last 20years.

From their first film Toy Story to their latest hit Cars 2 Pixar has continues to bring box office hits and stories we can cherish. Even kids today go to Disney and love the likes of Woody, Buzz, Nemo, Flick, WALL-E.

As a member of the Disney board Jobs also helped bring the firm back to life with Pixar a staple corner of that company, Pixar literally revolutionised animated film in the same way the iPod revolutionised the way we listed to music and the iPad revolutionized the way we use portable computers.

Lets celebrate his life, but with great sadness I say RIP Steve Jobs

Go back just over a year and the biggest film in the world (by box office gross) had been established, that film was James Cameron's Avatar, a film built from the ground up to show what 3D can achieve.

This weekend in the US Cars 2 has hit the top spot with a weekend gross of $68 million of which only 40% of that take was from 3D screening, so is the public finally realisd that 3D is just a gimmick?

If you listen to Sony they would have you believe that 3D is the future, we'll be watching all out broadcast TV and home movies in 3D, Nintendo are another company who have invested a lot of money in 3D, producing the 3DS, there is certainly no shortage of temptation for us to embrace the 3D age.

Not lets look at the numbers, Cars 2 isn't a first, King Fu Panda 2 and Rio both took more money in 2D rather than 3D, and most people who saw Pixar's top grossing film last year Toy Story 3 seemed to agree that the 3D did nothing for the film. In Japan the 3DS has been struggling, being outsold by the 7 year old PSP, a device for which the successor has already been announced and is reducing in sales.

Is there a future for 3D? Who knows at the moment, but 3D is starting to show it's colours at the cinema, the surcharge on the glasses certainly cant be helping, Sky TV are struggling with the uptake of 3D subscribers, again there is a surcharge, and gamers seem to be rejecting the notion as well.

There are a couple of high profile catalogue 3D film that have been retrofitted with 3D, the Star Wars Saga and Titanic, this may well be a test as to how the public is embracing 3D, but on current evidence we don't want it, the novelty has warn off.
