Going in to the top three and two of the the three films are new entries, at number three is dark thriller sequel The Purge Anarchy and at number two and doing better than thought is action film Hercules starring Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson.

First Impressions: While i have found the first two parts of the trilogy to be lacking the spark that The Lord of the Rings trilogy had i still have hopes for this one to bring us what we have been asking for since the start, i just hope it doesn’t disappoint again.
While video chatting one night, six high school friends receive a Skype message from a classmate who killed herself exactly one year ago. A first they think it’s a prank, but when the girl starts revealing the friends’ darkest secrets, they realize they are dealing with something out of this world, something that wants them dead. Told entirely from a young girl’s computer desktop, CYBERNATURAL redefines ‘found footage’ for a new generation of teens.
Impressions: Early indications on this film are very positive and from the trailer it looks like a interesting movie, yes this kind of thing has been done before yet when you use things like Skype it makes it feel more real.
It’ll be interesting to see if the film is any good when it does get released

Coming to cinema’s in September, Woody Allen brings us his latest romantic comedy Magic in the Moonlight starring the fantastic Colin Firth and Emma Stone.
We have the latest trailer and synopsis for you to check out and enjoy.
Set in the 1920s on the opulent Riviera in the south of France, Woody Allen’s MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT is a romantic comedy about a master magician (Colin Firth) trying to expose a psychic medium (Emma Stone) as a fake.
Chinese conjuror Wei Ling Soo is the most celebrated magician of his age, but few know that he is the stage persona of Stanley Crawford (Firth), a grouchy and arrogant Englishman with a sky-high opinion of himself and an aversion to phony spiritualists’ claims that they can perform real magic. Persuaded by his life-long friend, Howard Burkan (Simon McBurney), Stanley goes on a mission to the Côte d’Azur mansion of the Catledge family: mother Grace (Jacki Weaver), son Brice (Hamish Linklater), and daughter Caroline (Erica Leerhsen). He presents himself as a businessman named Stanley Taplinger in order to debunk the alluring young clairvoyant Sophie Baker (Stone) who is staying there with her mother (Marcia Gay Harden). Sophie arrived at the Catledge villa at the invitation of Grace, who is convinced that Sophie can help her contact her late husband, and once there, attracted the attention of Brice, who has fallen for her head over heels.
From his very first meeting with Sophie, Stanley dismisses her as an insignificant pip-squeak who he can unmask in no time, scoffing at the family’s gullibility. To his great surprise and discomfort, however, Sophie accomplishes numerous feats of mind-reading and other supernatural deeds that defy all rational explanation, leaving him dumbfounded. Before long, Stanley confesses to his beloved Aunt Vanessa (Eileen Atkins) that he has begun to wonder whether Sophie’s powers could actually be real. If they were to be true, Stanley realizes that anything might be possible, even good, and his entire belief system would come crashing down.
What follows is a series of events that are magical in every sense of the word and send the characters reeling. In the end, the biggest trick MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT plays is the one that fools us all.
The film comes alive in cinema’s on September 19th and we should be reviewing it on the Monday Movie Show.
Finally the hell spawn that is Mrs Browns Boys D’Movie has been knocked off the top spot after spending a few weeks at the top of the chart, the film replacing it is the fourth in the Transformers series with Transformers: Age of Extinction.

It’s not all good news though as if you take out the amount the film took in previews then it only took £3.1 million in it’s official opening weekend putting it in 10th place overall.
