Dumbo 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.

Toy Story 4

The Pixar hit keeps its place at the top of the US box office charts for a second weekend with a 57.9 Million gross.

This puts the films total gross at $236.9 Million after 10 days of release.

Annabelle Comes Home

Continuing the Conjuring Universe is the demon doll film which on its debut weekend of $20.3 Million ($31.2 Million including previews) lands at number 2 and is the highest new film of the week.

Yesterday

The new film from British director Danny Boyle lands at number 3 this week with $17 Million.

Aladdin

Dumbo

13 weeks on and the longest stay on the chart the live action of Disney's animated tale has taken $115.5 Million.

Maybe the reception was a little more muted than Warner Bros. would have liked but Godzilla: King Of The Monsters still makes its debut at number 1 on the US box office.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

The sequel to 2014's Godzilla hits the US box office at the top with a weekend gross of $49 million which compared to the original is nearly half its $93 million debut.

Warner have big plans for the monster series and this is maybe a warning shot that the western movie fan is not as interested as those in China for example where the film had a monster opening.

The film is also lower than 2017's Kong: Skull Island and with a Kong and Godzilla matchup coming in 2020 there are warning signs.

Rocketman
