The producers of the Bond series have announced that the new Bond film, Bond 25, will get a title reveal tomorrow April 25th at an iconic Bond location.

This will presumably be the 007 stage at Pinewood studios in Ivor, near London England.

The title of the film will be revealed, although Barbara Broccoli has said it wont be the rumoured Shatterhand.

There is every possibility there will also be a poster reveal as well, although this will likely be Daniel Craig posing with a gun in a tuxedo, or some variant of that theme.

See you back here tomorrow at 1:10 GMT/5:10 PST for the event.

**UPDATE** During the web cast which was broadcast from Bond creator Ian Flemming's house Goldeneye in Jamaica, nothing of note was revealed other than the cast and who is writing the script, the good news there is as rumoured its Phoebe Waller-Bridge of TV's Fleabag fame which will bring a good level of humour to the film, something lacking in recent instalments.

Also of note is the inclusion of recent Oscar winner Rami Malek to the cast who will play the lead villain.

The week saw the release of another in the ever growing Conjuring series in the form of The Nun which managed to make its global box offie debut at number 1.

The film saw itself go to the top of the box office in many countries and globally took $131 million from 61 countries on its debut weekend.

Another big hit of the summer is at 4, The meg pulls in $17.3 million from 68 countries for the week which means the film total gross now sits at $131.5 million, its Jason Stathams biggest global hot outside the Fast And Furious franchise.

To finish off the top 5 is another new entry, Peppermint directed by Pierre Morel of taken fame takes $14.6 million from just 18 countries for a reasonable debut from a little hyped films.
