Final Thought – Cinema Releases 17 May 2019 – & Box Office

The film many of us action movie lovers have been waiting for has finally arrived. We’re talking John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum starring Keanu Reeves and many more.

John Wick 3 is our pick of the week. That said if you do get a chance to see either Stanley Kubrick/Peter Sellers Dr. Strangelove (1964) or Tim Burton’s Batman (1989) fully restored on the big screen we would recommend taking it.

Avengers: Endgame continues to rake in the cash but slips to number two at the UK box office. That means Pokemon Detective Pikachu claims the coveted top spot. There’s a new entry at three with The Hustle. It managed just over £1 million despite generally negative reviews.

UK Blu-ray & DVD Charts

There are not too many big new releases on either blu-ray or DVD this week. That said you can find all of them in charts below.
