But did they make a mistake in putting Julian Assange on their jury?

Rooney Mara is fantastic in this delicate, sun-soaked Western

Ever since I was a boy, I always wondered about voice-overs...

Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

Well, it's official. There you go. Done and dusted. Avatar is the king of the world's box office. Fox confirmed that Titanic's title was lost to Cameron's successor early Monday following another massive haul over the weekend - it's now taken $1.292 billion in international receipts, $50 million ahead of Titanic.

With 70% of Avatar's income coming from oversees territories, Cameron still hasn't topped Titanic's domestic takings yet - he's on $551 million compared to $600 million in the US. Then again, technicalities can be trotted out all over the place; taking into account inflation, Titanic's worldwide record is actually closer to $2.5 billion. Let alone the skew 3-D prices put on Avatar's tickets. But is it wrong to take Cameron's title away from him? Perhaps. Unless he gets that Oscar too. In which case I'll be the first to roll out the old fact that Gone with the Wind's adjusted box office is still up at the $6 billion pound mark. No matter how big your blue people are, that's a hard target to beat.
