Upcoming – Again it’s a weeks when 21 new films will be released across the country however none of them are of the blockbuster kind, if you are after a new film though then you have the big screen version of the crime TV series Spooks, over-the-top action film Big Game, horror movie double bill in the form of The Canal and Wyrmwood, drama with The Age of Adaline and the re-release of action classics Mad Max and it’s sequel just in time for the new film the week after.

US Chart

It’ll come as no surprise to hear that Avengers: Age of Ultron went straight into the number one spot in this weeks chart, however the film failed to take more than the first Avengers film did in it’s opening weekend, that passed the $200 million mark, Age of Ultron failed at this task.

No other new films managed to get into this weeks chart as nothing wanted to go up against the might of the superhero collective.

Their was only one other new entry in this weeks chart in the form of event Cavalleria Rustica/Pagliacci – Met Opera which went in at number five.

Upcoming – This weeks see’s the release of 24 films however none of them should be able to cause much of a threat to the Avengers, if you are looking for a new film to see then the bigger films on offer are Skype horror Unfriended, animated kids adventure in Two by Two: Oops… The Ark Has Gone, drama Far From the Madding Crowd and Sci-Fi action sequel Monsters: Dark Continent.

Trailer – Ted 2

Newlywed couple Ted and Tami-Lynn want to have a baby, but in order to qualify to be a parent, Ted will have to prove he’s a person in a court of law.

Impressions – While Seth MacFarlane hit it out of the park with the first Ted film he stumbled with his follow up, A Million Ways to Die in the West, this however looks like MacFarlane back to his rude, crude and smutty ways.

Oh and the final joke in the trailer made me laugh like a little girl, more than any comedy has this year so far.
