The Book Thief has the highest buzz and consideration amongst moviegoers for five weeks

Coming to cinemas this weekend are action comedy Ride Along, Liam Neeson's new action movie Non-Stop, war-drama The Book Thief and As the Palaces Burna rockumentary about succesful metal band Lamb of God.

But easily topping the chart of these and all future releases for the next four weeks is The Book Thief, the film adaptation of the hugely succesful book by the same name about a disgusted Hitler Youth member who shares their would-be-burnt books.

58% have heard about it – the highest buzz score for the last five weeks among moviegoers, alongside The Lego Movie's score on its opening weekend – and 48% would like to see it out of all of the next four week's movies. That is the highest consideration score for the last five weeks, beating the previous record for The Monuments Men (42%).

The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw gives The Book Thief one star, the Telegraph give it two and the Independent give it three.
