The Business of Film: Aquaman
James Cameron-Wilson looks at the new leader of the UK box office, Aquaman, disappointed that it beat Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse to the top slot, a movie he considers far superior. He is less than impressed with Mortal Engines, debuting at #5. He points out that while only 4 films made over £40m in UK cinemas last year, this year over 8 have exceeded that take with overall attendance the highest since 1971. James also has a look at the nominations announced for the London Film Critics Circle awards.
