The Business of Film: Dune, The Boss Baby 2, Last Night in Soho, Ron's Gone Wrong
James Cameron-Wilson discusses the UK box office, with No Time To Die reclaiming the #1 spot. With £86m banked, it's the 6th most successful film in the UK and the only one ever to have taken over £1m a day for 30 consecutive days. Dune, spectacular but unengaging according to James, has been knocked off top spot and is #2. The Boss Baby 2 is #5 while Edgar Wright's "baffling" Last Night in Soho arrives at #8 with Ron's Gone Wrong, a UK animation much recommended, #9. James also looks at two Netflix movies, Hypnotic and The Harder They Fall.

The Business of Film: The Addams Family 2, The Guilty, I Never Cry, Whistle Down The Wind
James Cameron-Wilson looks at the UK box office chart, still dominated by A Time To Die, now the most successful Bond film ever. His heart sinks at the advent of The Addams Family 2 but admires Antoine Fuqua's The Guilty with Jake Gyllenhaal on Netflix and the Polish-Irish drama I Never Cry. And, taking a trip down memory lane, he revisits the 1961 film Whistle Down the Wind with Hayley Mills, the first movie to be directed by Bryan Forbes.

The Business of Film: No Time To Die, Chal Mera Putt 3 & Getting Away With Murder(s)
James Cameron-Wilson on the UK box office, which has erupted on the release of No Time To Die, soaring 450% on the previous weekend. Taking £26m in just 4 days, NTTD is already the highest grossing film of 2021. Indian movie Chal Mera Putt 3 debuted at #6 with an impressive £3,500 ave. on 54 screens but The Green Knight with Dev Patel could only manage #12. James gave a strong recommendation to the searing new documentary Getting Away With Murder(s), concerning the huge number of Nazi war criminals who lived ordinary lives after the Second World War, 400 of them in the UK alone.

The Business of Film: No Time To Die, The Many Saints of Newartk, Millions & Gunpowder Milkshake
James Cameron-Wilson looks at the latest weekend cinema chart before No Time To Die erupts. It is, he says, the longest Bond ever but absolutely wonderful and will set the box office alight. #2 at UK cinemas is The Many Saints of Newark, a belated cinema prequel to the TV series The Sopranos while #6 is The Green Knight with Dev Patel. James also says it's time to rewatch Danny Boyle's Millions and he enjoys Sky's Gunpowder Milkshake, with Karen Gillan and Lena Headey.

The Business of Film: Rose Plays Julie, Kate & Johnny Guitar
James Cameron-Wilson examines the UK box office, depressed by a lack of any new big films ahead of the new James Bond film, No Time To Die. Stylish Irish film Rose Plays Julie arrived at #30 in the chart, though James still recommends last week's Irish entry Herself, now at #15. With nothing else new to get his teeth into, James recommends the Netflix film Kate, starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Woody Harrelson, despite a somewhat derivative thriller plot. He also feels the 1954 Joan Crawford film Johnny Guitar, long held to be a camp classic, deserves a higher reputation; it is now out in a restored edition on DVD and Blu-Ray.
