News from around the web

What are the films were looking forward to the most in 2015? Here is our list of the 15 films were most excited about this year.

Do you agree? Have we missed something off? Let us know what you think of this list.

So in order of release date here it is.

Big Hero 6 - Disney always have a place in cinema and here is their latest effort, released last year in America it got great reviews.

Fifty Shades of Grey - Despite the trashy nature of the novel the trailer for this have made it look, if nothing else, intriguing.

Chappie - Neill Blomkamp delivered with District 9 and brought the interesting Elysium to the screen, the trailer looks good.

The Divergent Series Insurgent - Divergent was surprisingly good and has whetted the appetite for this sequel.

Avengers: Age of Ultron - Avengers was simply brilliant and this should deliver action and drama in ample doses, Joss Whedon can do no wrong!

Pitch Perfect 2 - The real surprise feel good movie of all time, Pitch Perfect get it's deserved sequel.

Pixels - it may have Adam Sandler in it but the concept just makes us want to see this big time.

Tomorrowland - Fascinating concept and with George Clooney, it will be either great or just terrible!

Jurassic World - 14 years later the world of dinosaurs has evolved to a fully working theme park as visualised in the original, of course things go wrong!

Terminator: Genisys - Love or hate the idea behind this it will either revive or kill the series, and how else could they have brought an ageing Arnie back?

Minions - The best of the Despicable Me series gets their own film, the trailer have the laughing out loud.

Inside Out - Pixar are back with a take on the Hermans Head idea, even Pixars worst and really great so high expectations for this.

Suffragette - Maybe its because we know someone in this film, or maybe it's because of the all star line up but were really looking forward to this.

Spectre - It's Bond, it's the follow up the the Uk's highest grossing film ever, it will be great, nothing more to say.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens - The year ends with the most anticipated film of them all and the most anticipated film since Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, lets hope this one live up to expectations.

Last weekend The Boxtrolls managed to keep a very slender lead ahead of Liam Neeson in a tightly fought battle for the top.

The Boxtrolls makes it 2 weeks at the top, this week with no advanced screenings, but it still manages to retain a £1.33 million weekend and £3.6 million from 10 days of release.

Highest new entry for the week is A Walk Among the Tombstones starring Liam Neeson reprising a role for which he seems to have found a nice since his starring in Taken.

Tombstones narrowly missed out the the top spot by about £15 million, taking £1.31 for the weekend, with The Equaliser being released on Friday it will likely not get it's day at the top.

Also new this week are

  • The Riot Club at 5
  • 20,000 Days On Earth at 8
  • Magic In The Moonlight at 12
  • The Giver at 14
  • Khoobsurat at 15

Historical box office

This time last year Ron Howard's Rush was still topping the box office with the highest new film right down at 5 in the shape of Diana.

Five years ago Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs was the new film at the top knocking District 9 down to second place.

Ten years ago Tom Cruise went serious in Collateral knocking Open Water down to second after a single week on top.

Fifteen years ago The Generals Daughter entered in second place while Eyes Wide Shut stayed at the top for a second week.

After 2 weeks at the top Lucy gets knocked down the chart by Sex Tape which makes it's debut in the Uk at number 1.

Starring Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel this Jake Kasdan directed comedy about a couple trying to spice up their sex life by making a movie, which then gets shared to everyone debuts with £1.4 million.

Not a great opening gross especially for the 2 leads, Diaz has enjoyed great success with the Shrek franchise while Segel has seen big grosses with the likes of The Muppets, Gullivers Travels and Knocked Up.

Lucy has been having a great cinema run and after 3 weeks of release has taken a very respectable £10.46 million.

Also new this week is

Before I go to Sleep at 3
The Hundred Foot Journey at 4
The Guest at 8

Chart History
One year ago this week Richard Curtis's About Time made it's debut at the top of the box office knocking the One Direction boys to 3rd.

Five years ago District 9 was the debut film for Neill Blomkamp and it debuted at the top knocking The Final Destination into second.

Ten years ago Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks team up agin to debut the Terminal at the top knocking Dodgeball to second place.

Fifteen years ago so a very static box office with South Park Bigger Louder and Uncut staying at the top while the top new film was Go right down at six.

Finally twenty years ago this month Speed and Forest Gump where the big film at the box office while twenty five years ago Dead Poets Society and Young Einstein were the big grossing films of September.

Four main new releases should battle for attention at cinemas in the UK this weekend with Matt Damon and Jodie Foster leading the way but Jennifer Anniston not too far behind.

From the director Neill Blomkamp who brought us the critically acclaimed South African film District 9 back in 2009 comes his follow up. This time he hits Hollywood getting Damon and Foster involved.

The film has been received well by critics and Blomkamp has again used sci-fi to hide a political message.

I expect Elysium to debut at the top of the box office over the weekend with nothing else to challenge, expect a debut in the region of £4 million.

Were the Millers starring Jennifer Anniston will challenge Elysium for the top spot. The wacky comedy has had surprisingly good reviews especially for Aniston.

The friends actress is always a big pull in the UK but the film doesn't have the special effects spectacle that will wow on the big screen, I expect a debut in the region of £2 million and probably debut at 2.

Also out this week is The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones have which will probably do better than I'm expect, becoming a teen favourite and having a cult following this will appeal to the Harry Potter and Twilight audience and could do big numbers, I'm expecting somewhere around the £1 million mark and a top 5 entry. Finally this week is Lovelace, starring Amanda Seyfried as fames 70's porn actress Linda Lovelace. Lovelace will debut in the top 10 but I'm expecting under a £1 million debut.
