Final Thought – Cinema Releases 12 April 2019 – & Box Office

Hellboy is one of the week’s big releases and is seen as a reboot of the film franchise. Unfortunately it would appear that the awful film trailer really does represent the full movie judging by the critic’s reviews. To say its bad may very well be an understatement.

Meanwhile at the UK box office superhero movie Shazam! seems to have impressed audiences as it takes over £4 million and the number one spot. Tim Burton’s Dumbo slips to two but takes a further £3.5 million despite poor reviews and overall negative audience reception.

UK Blu-ray & DVD Charts

On the UK Blu-ray charts Ralph Breaks The Internet enters at number one whilst there are still two classic Doctor Who entries in the top 100, Tom Baker’s Doctor Who – The Collection – Season 18 and Patrick Troughton’s Doctor Who – The Macra Terror both of which we recommend picking up.

Another must have is the newly restored The Likely Lads film released by Network.
