News from around the web

Racing drama Ford V Ferrari makes its US debut this week at the top of the box office while heavily hyped reboot Charlie's Angels also makes its debut but at number 3, all told it was yet another very quiet November weekend at the US box office.

Ford V. Ferrari ( Le Mans '66 )

Directed by James Mangold the racing drama, which has the title Le Mans '66 outside North America, lands at number 1 this weekend with a gross of $31 Million.

The film may have topped the US box office but the chart as a whole is going through a slump and is 44% lower than 2018 when Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald made its debut.


The World War II drama about the battle of Midway falls from the top to number 2 on its second weekend of release with $8.7 Million taking the movies total to $35.1 Million.

Charlie's Angels

After much hype this big screen reboot makes its debut at number 3 with a largely disappointing $8.6 Million.

The Elizabeth Banks directed movie failed to pull in audience and failed it pull in the same kind of interest the 2000 version of the TV show managed.

Playing With Fire

Starring John Cena this light-heated comedy fell to number 4 on its second weekend with $8.5 Million taking its total to $22.5 Million.

Last Christmas

The holiday film featuring the music of George Micheal and Wham! falls to number 5 on its second weekend with $6.1 Million for a $25 Million total.


DC's villain movie is at number 8 this weekend but its the highest total grossing movie on the box office with $322.5 Million after 7 weeks.

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child was written as a stage show and it was promised it would always stay that way, the book that was released soon after the West End production opened was in play form not novel, but the signage for the play has just recently been changed to reflect that of the movies so does this mean that a movie version is in the works?

The original sign was not unique and in many ways reflected that of the original publications in the UK, whereas the logo used on the movies was closer to that of the original US version, and the new logo was presented on Broadway first in a full Time Square takeover and on Back To Hogwarts Day.

The change has had a lot of fans angry about this claiming that the story is seperated from the Harry Potter cannon and this marks that seperation, but why would there be this change?

The obvious conclusion is that there is a movie version on the way, Warner Bros. owns the movie rights to the series and have been a partner to Harry Potter Theatre which produces the stage show.

The rumours have been denied by everyone including J.K. Rowling who posted some cryptic tweets, but are they just not telling the absolute truth because it's not time to announce it yet?

For Warner Brox. who have made Billions of dollars from the series want that money to keep rolling in, The Fantastic Beasts series had a promising start but last year Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald didn't do as well as they would have liked.

The theme park area at Universal Studios are doing well, and are keeping the franchise alive, but there needs to be a new movie for Warner Bros. that fans can sink their teeth into.

Rowling could write a whole new set of Harry Potter centric stories especially for the screen, but she will need to please the fans, and she has always stated after the books she wont revisit Harry Potter and his world again.

She keeps tight control over everything Harry Potter, but she could commission a new writer/screenplay write to come up with some new stories, The Cursed Child was written by Jack Thorne and John Tiffany with Rowling only providing the story, so this is ground she has been down before.

As much as this is something which may be explored in the future, why bother when you have a tried and tested story already there and waiting for a screen version to be produced, its Harry Potter, its already written and it would most likely take over a Billion dollars at the box office.

Also it would bring the story to the fans who either dont go to the theatre, it is a niche past time which although having the boy who lived as brought more more bums on seats to theatre in the same way the books got people reading again you are still making inaccessible to some.

I am going to stick my neck out and say there will be a movie version of Harry Potter And The Cursed Child in the long run, there is just too much of a money making opportunity there for Warner Bros., and as the film is already in 2 parts I am sure it can be dragged out to a trilogy, a 3 Billion plus grossing trilogy.

The Super Heroes of Avengers Infinity War and the all singing all dancing spectacular of Mamma Mia! Here we go again fought it out for the top film of 2018 at the UK box office.

Avengers Infinity War

The latest Avengers movie from the Disney Marvel Studios topped the yearly box offie chart on its release in April and never let go.

The film took an amazing £70 million in the UK over a 10 week stretch on the box office and is the 10th top film in the UK ever.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

The Sequel to 2008's top film could only manage 2nd place 10 years later although it gave the Avengers movie a run for its money.

The Super Trooper movie took £65.6 million over its 11 week run on the box office and its the 11th top film ever in the UK.

Incredibles 2

Still in sequel territory as Pixar released a follow up to their 2004 original which took £55.9 million at the UK box office over its 14 week run.

Black Panther

Released at the beginning of the year before Avengers Infinity War this Marvel movie set the tone and if the 4th top film of 2018.

The film took £50 million at the UK box office over its 12 week run.

Bohemian Rhapsody

Maybe a bit of a suprise this one, the Bryan Singer directed Queen/Freddy Mercury bio-pic is the fifth top grossing film of the year.

With a UK gross of £46 million over its 9 week (and counting) box office run it is also the directors top grossing UK film.

The story of 2018 in the UK is that it bucked the trend a little from the rest of the world and we didn't just go mad for super hero movies, we like our musicals, The Greatest Showman despite being a 2017 took £41 million in 2018 and Bohemian Rhapsody has plenty of music in it.

Here is the full UK top 10 grossing films in 2018.

  1. Avengers Infinity War - £70.8 million
  2. Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again - £65.5 million
  3. Incredibles 2 - £55.9 million

  9. Deadpool 2 - £32.5 million
  10. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald - £31.6 million

Avengers Infinity War

Disneys Superhero powerhouse ran away with the global box office in 2018 with the first part of their Avengers story which will conclude in 2019.

Avengers: infinity War took just over $2 billion at the global box office, the first film to reach the milestone since The Force Awakens in 2015, also from Disney.

Black Panther

As if to rub salt in the wound Disney and Marvel also had the second highest grossing film of 2018 with Black Panther with took $1.34 billion in 2018.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdon

A strong international showing for the Dinosaur film stopped Disney from totally dominating the global box office as the Jurassic World sequel is the third top film of 2018 with $1.30 billion.
