Forecasting a UK General Election by the autumn, Mike assesses the state of the two main parties and looks at the runners and riders in the - eventual - contest for leadership of the Conservative Party.

The Business of Film: Wonder Park
James Cameron-Wilson casts his eye down the UK box office top ten, with Dumbo regaining top spot as the holidays begin, pushing Shazam! to #2 spot. Wonder Park debuts at #3, the Hellboy remake is at #4, highly-regarded Wild Rose makes it in at #6 and Little, with the youngest executive producer ever in Hollywood, is at #8.

The Business of Film: Shazam!
James Cameron-Wilson runs his eye down the UK box office chart, with age-shift superhero movie Shazam! pushing Dumbo from the front spot, a new Pet Semetary at #3 and French-directed western The Sisters Brothers clocking in at #9. Out for home release is Mary Poppins Returns, which will no doubt fly off the shelves and 1952 Finnish classic The White Reindeer, which might have a little more trouble getting into the air.
