Final Thought – Cinema Releases 29 March 2019 & Box Office

Tim Burton’s Dumbo film is clearly the main attraction this week and we fully expect it to prove popular amongst moviegoers this weekend. Is it a classic? Maybe not but it should still take a ton of money at the box office.

Speaking of the box office Captain Marvel has been replaced at the top of the US movie charts by horror Us. However it’s a different story in the UK with it retaining top spot meaning Us has to settle for the number two spot.

We’ve added in the UK Blu-ray and DVD charts covering all of the top 30 plus all the new releases from the top 100.
