Weekly Film Charts and Releases (15 August 2019)

This again but more timely. Still working this whole malarkey out (I’m several years out of experience with cinema) but I’m getting there. And to the people who want to read the gaming news, it’s late because of politics. Well because of American politics. It has bugger all effect on the normal UK day to day stuff (we make our own convoluted jumbles here), but when the place that makes most the games makes loads of issues out of the making, the selling, and the playing of the games the rest of the world turns and collectivity says;

What?!

I’ll have two game news posts up over the weekend.

Anyway, here’s the film charts updates stating with the UK Weekend Box Office,
