Final Thought – Cinema Releases 24 May 2019 – & Box Office

The Secret Life of Pets 2 and Disney’s Aladdin should prove popular with families this week. We’re not too sure about Rocketman judging purely by the trailer. It looks like a bit of a miss, but you never know film trailers are quite often a poor indication of the real film.

John Wick performed rather well at both the American and United Kingdom box offices taking in $56.8 and £3.56 million respectively.

UK Blu-ray & DVD Charts

The Blu-ray and DVD charts continue to be full of superhero movies but there are two new entries occupying the top two places. Those films are Bumblebee and The Favourite both from 2018.


What movies/films have we all been watching over the last week, time to find out as we take a look at the Top 10 Box Office Films in both the US and UK.
