The Business of Film: Hobbs & Shaw
James Cameron-Wilson examines the UK box office, still dominated by Disney, even though they lose the #1 spot to Universal's Fast & Furious spin-off Hobbs and Shaw. The only other new entry in the top 10 is Angry Birds 2, towards which James is not kind. He is far more supportive of his DVD/Blu-Ray of the week, The White Crow, about Rudolf Nureyev and directed by Ralph Fiennes, who also appears.
