Final Thought – Cinema Releases 31 May 2019 – & Box Office

There’s nothing to be honest that we would really recommend seeing this week. Godzilla: King Of The Monsters and Booksmart should give the teenage cinema-goer something to enjoy.

It will also be interesting to see how well Rocketman goes down in the States. It did exceptionally well in the UK last week. Not however quite as well as the Queen film, Bohemian Rhapsody (2018) did on its opening weekend.

Aladdin tops both the UK and USA top 10 box office films this week. That comes despite the many mixed reviews the film received prior to release.

UK Blu-ray & DVD Charts

M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass (2019), a psychological thriller superhero film, tops both the UK Blu-ray and DVD Charts. Other new entries include Mary Queen of Scots (2018), 633 Squadron and Trapped Alive. You can find the all of the new releases in the charts below
