Speaking at Dcm Upfronts, Tom Linay predicts strong 2016 at UK box office; Sir John Hegarty delivers keynote.
Speaking at the annual Dcm Upfronts event, Digital Cinema Media’s annual exploration of the cinema advertising landscape, the company’s head of film Tom Linay predicted that 2016 would be the biggest year ever for family films at the UK box office, surpassing the current landmark set by 2013.
He highlighted Kung Fu Panda 3, The Jungle Book, The Secret Life Of Pets, The Bfg and Finding Dory, claiming that the latter - Disney-Pixar’s sequel to Finding Nemo - should be the biggest animated release of the year.
He added that the year’s animation slate would be comprised of both strong franchise entries and original properties, suggesting that Illumination Entertainment’s The Secret Life Of Pets, the company behind the Despicable Me and Minions films, and Disney’s Moana were likely to both perform strongly.

It is the responsibility of the working film critic not only to see and review as many new releases as possible, but also to constantly revisit films in order to challenge one’s own opinions. Moreover, it is important to review those films as you would any other film, no matter whether you once loved it or hated it. Considering how many movies are constantly available to audiences today, every film should be considered new to someone. Critics should take it upon themselves to form new opinions of even the most revered movies, and to always remind themselves and their audiences that films do not belong on shelves. They must be seen and shared and constantly re-examined. My kids have started asking me questions about Tarzan. Certain characters hold such a permanent place in pop culture that even when there's nothing new in theaters or on TV, the character remains in the mass consciousness somehow. »
