News from around the web

Based on the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Cats has been given a U age rating in the UK.

starring a host of big names including James Corden, Judi Dench, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellen and Taylor Swift, to name a few, this is an all singing all dancing tale with the actors CGI'd as cats.

The film is being brought to by director Tom Hooper who previously brought us The Kings Speech so it has a good pedigree and has a change to capture magic of the stage version.

The BBFC have given the film a U rating for very mild threat, rude humour, language and it has a runtime of 109 minutes (1 hours 49 minutes) and was passed uncut.

The film is released on 20th December 2019.

Marvels latest superhero goes to the top of the UK box office with an incredibly good opening weekend, far better than could have been predicted.

Ryan Reynolds stars in Deadpool which makes its UK box office debut at the top with an incredible £13.6 million debut.

The film which is being distributed by 20th Century Fox rather than Disney beat all expectation and becomes a new franchise for Marvel, a sequel is in the works.

Falling from the top down to number 5 after a single week is Goosebumps which takes just over £1 million pound bringing its total to £4.1.

Also new this week is Alvin and The Chipmunks The Road Chip at number 2 and maybe a little disappointing Zoolander No 2 at number 2.

Highest grossing film on the box office is Star Wars: The Force Awakens which has not taken an amazing £121 million.

Historical charts
A year ago
Valentines day favourite Fifty Shades of Grey made its debut at the top knocking Big Hero 6 into second place.

Five years ago
Gnomeo and Juliet took over the top spot on its debut from The Kings Speech which fell to number 2.

Ten years ago
Chicken Little from Disney was the top film on its debut and with a top 3 of new releases Zathura A Space Adventure fell from the top to number 5.

Fifteen years ago
What Women Want stayed at the top of the box office for a second week while Dude, Where's My Car? was the highest new film at number 2.

Twenty years ago
Heat stayed at the top for a second week while highest new film was Loch Ness at number 4.

Twenty Five years ago
Oscar winning Dances With Wolves was the highest new film at the top while Kindergarten Cop fell to number 2.

Making it four weeks at the top of the box office chart this week, and becoming the top grossing film ever in the UK in that time Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The seventh Star Wars film has not taken just about every honour the box office can give, except for highest grossing film across the globe, which it will probably leave where it is.

The figure for The Force Awakens this week are, £6 million for the weekend, £11 million for the week and £108 million total gross, it is of course the highest total grossing film on the chart.

Highest new film of the week is the 8th Quentin Tarantino film (have directors ever promoted film before by how many they have made!) The Hateful Eight which enters the chart at number 2.

The film takes £2.7 million for the weekend, £4 million behind The Force Awakens showing how popular that film still is.

The are no other new films on the box office top 10 this week.

Historical charts

A year ago
Tak3n (Taken 3) was the highest new film of the week knocking The Theory of Everything down to number 3.

Five years ago
Oscar winner The Kings Speech entered that box office at the top knocking Little Fockers down to number 3.

Ten years ago
King Kong remained at the top of the chart and with a static top 2 the highest new film was Just Friends at number 3.

Fifteen years ago
Unbreakable was unmovable at number 1 with the highest new film coming in at number 4 in the shape of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, good for an oriental movie.

Twenty years ago
Seven (or Se7en) was the highest new film at the top of the box office knocking Ace Ventura When Nature Calls down to number 2.

Twenty five years ago
Arachnophobia came in at the top and knocked Home Alone to number 2.

For the first time the UK box office surpass the £1 billion takings in a single calendar year, helped by big hits such as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, The Kings Speech and The inbetweeners, all British films.

The actual figure according The British Film Institute is £1.04 billion 5% up on 2010, this amounts to a staggering 171,600,000 tickets sold (more or less), a figure which is a 1.4% increase on the previous year. The large difference in spend to tickets sold seems odd considering ticket prices went down in 2011, but then with the 3D tax you start to realize where the extra comes from.

Films shot in the UK or financed in someway in the UK amounts to just over 36%, that's a staggering 24% up on the previous year, this is an incredible statistic, especially in the wake of prime Minister David Cameron claiming the UK needs to make more blockbusters that make money, go figure!

This year looks to be another big year for movies with some great Hollywood blockbuster due in the coming months which will certainly boost to cinema figures for 2012.

This week War Horse remains at the top of the UK box office chart while the highest new film is Haywire.

Last Year The Kings Speech was still top of the box office with Black Swan the top new release.

Five years ago Rocky Balboa made a return to the top of the box office and was also the highest new film.

Ten Years ago The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring was still at the top while Black Hawk Down was the top new film.
