Sing 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.

In a bid to promote its new streaming platform Paramount+ the studio today has announced that selected movies will be put exclusively on the platform between 30 and 45 days after release.

Paramount Pictures

The new streaming platform is the latest home video on demand service to be launched alongside the likes of Disney+ from Disney which includes the likes of Pixar, Star Wars and marvel Cinematic Universe and HBO Max which is owned by Warner Bros.

During the last 12 months Disney and Warner Bros. have used their platforms to launch their titles that have had long delays, like Disney's Mulan, although often they have also given them a theatrical release in cities and countries where they are open, HBO Max has done it at no extra charge, Disney have charged a premium on top of the monthly fee.

A Quiet Place Part II

During a press conference today (February 24th 2021) ViacomCBS chief Bob Bakish, who own Paramount and Universal studios laid out the plans for the new service which will take over from CBS All Access and their other streaming platforms.

The upcoming Mission:Impossible 7 and A Quiet Place Part II, both of which have suffered delayed releases because of the pandemic, are two title the CEO named which will be on the platform 45 days after an exclusive theatrical window.

Universal were the company last year that upset the cinema chains in the US when they announced they would shorted the exclusive window from 90 days to 30 days, and in a controversial move they put Trolls World Tour directly to video on demand (VOD).

Cinemas in the UK are going to open on or around May 17th and in the US cinemas are opening in different states as and when they can, the industry needs a hit movie in order to get people back into cinemas.

Detective Cinamtown 3

In China last weekend the movie Detective Cinamtown 3 was released which took over $300 Million on its opening weekend and to date has taken over $600 Million, challenging Avengers: Engame as the top grossing movie of all time.

China seems to cherish its industry and is doing all it can to make it thrive, so why is the same not happening in Europe and America?

After the cast of the new Spider-Man movie had a bit of fun with the title yesterday (February 23rd) today its been revealed the title will be Spider-Man: No Way Home.

The titles that were teased by the stars were Spider-man: Home Slice, Spider-Man: Phone Home and Spider-Man: Home Wrecker, as you can see 'Home' was clearly going to feature.

Now today Sony have released a video which gives the proper title a reveal and lets agree its better than the teased ones!

Its also worth remembering that "Home" has featured in all the Disney MCU Spider-Man movies, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far From Home and now Spider-Man: No Way Home.

Spider-Man teaser titles

The current rumours suggest that the movie will be set in the multiverse that WanderVision on Disney+ is currently teasing and the new Doctor Strange movie will feature, and as Benedict Cumberbatch's Strange will be in the movie is a fair guess.

There is also big rumours, although denied by Tom Holland, that previous Spider-Man actors Toby Maquire and Andrew Garfield could be in the movie as two previous generation villains feature in the shape of Electro and Doctor Octopus as played by Jamie Foxx and Alfred Molina.

The movie is currently wrapping filming with Jon Watts directing and alongside Holland as Spider-Man is the returning Zendaya and Jacob Batalon.

The movie is set for a December 17th 2021 release and a trailer and official poster is sure to follow soon.

During Prime Minister Boris Johnsons outline to re-opening that was announced on 22nd February cinemas will be allowed to open their doors, maybe, in stage 4 from May 17th.

Sourced from BBC

This will be good news for the industry, and cinema goers who have not been able to see movies on the big screen since the end of last 2020 when Wonder Woman 1984 was the big new movie.

It is also good news for the cinema industry which is suffering during the latest lock down and many small independent theatres may have no choice but to close for good.

The bad news of course is that after 6 weeks of having to close their doors to the public it looks like there will still be another 3 months at least of shutdown to ensure the country keeps moving in the right direction.

Also with studios having to re-shuffle their schedules and many blockbusters having gone to streaming already there needs to be some confidence that people will return to cinemas.

Black Widow

There are films like Tom And Jerry, The Croods: A New Age, Mortal Kombat and the much delayed MCU movie Black Widow which is due on 7th May, a move for that is almost certain now.

What is more positive is that film like No Time To Die and Top Gun: Maverick can possibly stick to their release dates of October 8th and July 9th respectively.

This date is conditional of COVID-19 cases and deaths not spiking, but the UK has done a great job under the current lockdown and the vaccination programme is going really well so fingers crossed to light can be seen at the end of the tunnel.

Cinema attendance in the UK dropped by 75% to 44 million tickets sold in 2020 due to the pandemic closures and limited openings later in the year.

Things started off really well in the first 3 months of the year, with over 80% of the total happening between January and March.

The COVID-19 pandemic took hold in late March and as you expect things just collapsed after that with less than 10 Million tickets sold between March and December.

1917

The industry suffered 3 closures during that time and unlike in countries like America there is no drive-in culture which in part has kept the industry ticking.

Just under £250 Million in tickets were sold in 2020, compared to £1.25 Billion in 2019 which amounted to 176 Million tickets.

The highest grossing movie of the year was the Sam Mandes directed 1917 which was released in January 2020 and took over £40 Million at the box office.

2021 has not got off to a good start and cinemas have been closed but with vaccines being administered fast and a drop in cases it is hoped UK cinemas will open soon and the country will slowly get back to normal.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife

With no big releases due until at least the second quarter of the year UK cinema goers are in for a busy end of year with film like No Time To Die and Ghostbusters: Afterlife set to be big hits.

After scoring a big hit towards the end of 2020 with Honest Thief Liam Neeson is back once again in the Pandemic era with The Marksman which makes its debut a the top.

With many cinemas in the US still closed there are no other new film on the top 10 this weekend and the top 5 just performs a bit of a shift with everything dropping one place.

With no sigh yet of a return to normal we have a while to wait until we get a substantial new release.

US box office Quickview.

  • Number 1 - The Marksman (1st Week)
  • Highest debut - The Marksman (@1)
  • Longest run - The War With Grandpa (15 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - The Croods: A New Age ($39,289,465)*
  • *Excluding re-releases

Weekly breakdown of the US top 5 15th - 17th January 2021

The Marksman

Liam Neeson strikes again as he returns to the top in his latest starring role which takes $3.2 Million on its debut weekend.

Compared to Neeson's last release during the COVID-19 pandemic this is a little lower as Honest Thief took $3.7 Million on its debut.

Wonder Woman 1984

Wonder Woman 1984

The DC Universe superhero movie is available on streaming which will have effected its box office performance but this week falls from the top where it spent 3 weeks to number 2 with $2.6 Million, only 13% down from last weekend.

The movie has now taken $35.8 Million over its for weeks of release, as a comparison the original Wonder Woman from 2017 had taken $318.1 Million by the same point, but a comparison is unfair of course.

The Croods: A New Age

Doing surprisingly well still is the animated sequel starring Nicholas Cage which this week takes just over $2 Million, an increase of 11% from last weekend.

This pushes the movies total gross to $39.2 Million after 8 weeks of release, quite a feat considering the pandemic and that the movie is available on streaming.

News Of The World

The Tom Hanks staring Oscar contender falls to 4 this weekend with a gross of $1 Million, 15% drop from last weekend, giving the movie $8.5 Million after 4 weeks of release.

Monster Hunter~2020

Paul W.S. Anderson's video game adaptation is at 5 this weekend with $920,000, 17% down from last weekend, giving the movie a new total of $9 Million after 5 weeks.
