April 2015

Dear friends,

A Happy Easter to you all. As we pass the Easter eggs around and gorge ourselves on delicious chocolate – I reflect on the differing fortunes of recent cinema releases. Some films are doing very well at the box office (Fifty Shades of Grey and Cinderella for example) while others have struggled to find an audience (Blackhat and The Gunman are recent releases that come to mind). It's crowded out there and, sadly, not every movie can be a hit.

These days, the blockbusters often seem to do better than the “squeezed” smaller film, and this month we have the opening of one of the biggest blockbusters of the year. Avengers: Age of Ultron hits British movie screens on 24th April 2015 and goes on general release in the USA on May 1st. You can read a little about this long awaited sequel (and the other new releases) in the April edition of my newsletter – Big Films Monthly .

The first Avengers movie made more than one and a half billion dollars at the worldwide box office when it was released in 2012. Can Avengers: Age of Ultron match that performance? Given the continued popularity of superhero movies, there's every reason to think so. Well, whatever types of movie you decide to go to see this month (whether they're blockbusters, B movies, or arthouse independents) I hope you have a great time at the pictures. Happy Viewing!
