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

Review: Ain't Them Bodies Saints

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

Review: About Time

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.

Unstoppable Harry Potter Stays Top of UK Box Office Print E-mail

Harry Potter is still top of the UK Box Office. Quel surprise.

The Boy who Lived dropped 55% to take £8.3m for a solid second weekend. That's £14k per screen, by the way. The new releases this week had a scatter-shot impact, all fighting for the rest of the UK's cinema space.

Unstoppable bagged second spot with a strong £1.7m, but London Boulevard was the closest after that, with just £577k.

Clooney got less love & 200 fewer screens than The Knightley, with The American taking £411k. That's Clooney's lowest opening since 2005's Good Night and Good Luck (a masterpiece that got £5k less when it was first released).

Anton Corbijn's arthouse thriller sadly took less than Due Date, but double that of The Girl with the Hornets' Nest. The final part of Momentum's Millennium Trilogy got only £219k, not helped by unfavourable reviews. But floppy hair topped floppy knives, as Machete scraped £90k way down in 10th place. To compare it to his previous Grindhouse effort, it barely beat Planet Terror's £80k, despite having 100 more screens.

It's been a cluttered week at the cinema, so it's no wonder than Rowling's wizard continues his spell of dominance. But if Danny Trejo, Lisbeth Salander, George Clooney & a train-wielding black man can't beat Potter, who can? Three weeks to Tron Legacy...
