Cinemas across the globe are still largely closed due to COVID-19 but some cinemas in America and globally are starting to open.
Drive-in theatres where there are 305 across America with 549 screen have opened and also Norway and South Korea are still report box office charts.
The US chart only has five film so here are the figures from those movies where distributers have reported figures and also a global chart compiled from the countries that have released data.
US Box Office
Directed by Brett Pierce and Drew T. Pierce this horror movie got well received by critics when released on VOD in other countries and is doing well in drive-in move theatres across America as it take $89,608 over the weekend.
The movie got its debut last weekend and has made $165,294 in total to date at the box office.
Starring Beanie Feldstein and Emma Thompson this comedy made its debut this weekend so in essence is the highest new film with $13,201.
The film went direct to VOD a few weeks ago and its impossible to tell how much it will make on its "box office" run.

Global Box Office
Directed by Woody Allen this New York based movie was release in South Korea this week where it is the top film and took $339,633 from 563 cinemas.
The film is set to be released on streaming on 5th June in the UK but has taken $344,283 to date.
Making its debut again in South Korea the Daniel Radcliffe starring movie took $136,250, globally the movie has taken $176,208 to date.
One of the most controversial movie in recent times the Trolls followup in from Universal, the controversy is not due to the content but the fact that its success on VOD has lead Universal to think about which film it releases in cinemas and which film it releases on both at the same time, a move AMC and Cinemark have not been happy with.
The film takes $126,662 (from South Korea) on its debut and has actually taken $2.6 Million globally since release on 6th April 2020.
There are no major blockbusters being released during this time so cinema chains are looking to fill their screens with older movies and so this 26 year old movie is the fourth top film this week.
The movie makes $111,157 from its single country release but the film has taken $5.6 Million globally since its initial release.
This Asian movie directed by Mengying Dai and Tong Zhou is at number 5 and takes $73,635 over the weekend, it has taken $2.6 Million since release on 21st June 2019 in China where it has grossed $2.1 Million.
The top film in Norway was Onwards which took $17,208 which places it at number 11 on the global box office this week, it has taken $104,080,103 globally.

AMC Cinema Group which owns the UK chain ODEON have announced that they will not show any more Universal movie releases because the studio has announced they will release some movies day and date at theatres and VOD (Video On Demand).
The reason Universal have made this decision is because of the apparent success and feedback the studio got after they released Trolls World Tour directly to VOD during the CODIV-19 lockdown that effected the world.
For Universal you can see why they have decided this, some movies don't perform well in cinemas and to announce they are going to release some movie on both formats day and date is an interesting move and perhaps an inevitable one, not that we agree with the move away from a theatrical release.
For AMC, which is owned by a larger company called Wanda Group, they are clearly worried about their revenue once the global lockdown is lifted, cinemas across the globe whether they be large corporate businesses or small independent local cinemas are struggling, they have had no income in the last month or so and many will close down permanently.
For both companies this is a stalemate which effects the consumer, cinemas goers want the choice, there is an inevitability that technical progress has brought us which has created a new way to watch movies (sort of), but these corporation need to think of the movie fan before fighting over revenues, after all thats what they are there for isn't it?
I suspect that when Universal release their next massive billion dollar movie AMC and ODEON will welcome the movie to their multiplexes.

Rian Johnsons smash hit movie falls to number 4 this week after 4 weeks on the home entertainment charts.
Making a return to the top 5 this week as people reminds themselves of the movie before the sequel Trolls World Tour hits streaming this week.
The movie came out late in 2016 and was a big hit during its box office run where it took £24 Million over 14 weeks in the UK and took $344 Million globally.
Here is the full top 10 home entertainment charts 15th - 21st April 2020:
With the stay at home order issued by the UK government, and the closing of non essential businesses, cinemas are still closed and the public are not leaving home, hence there are no new releases at the box office this weekend.
This is going to continue for the coming weeks and it could be late April, early May before things resume to normal.
Its been an interesting week with more films being delayed, most notably Wonder Woman 1984 which was due for release next month has now been moved to August 14th.
Although there was no official box office chart this weekend, the first time since the regular box office was reported, with cinemas not closing down until the middle of the week some figures were reported and The Invisible Man would have been the top film in the UK.
Also across the globe there was some countries reporting box office figures, and Trolls World Tour would have been the top movie of the week.
Many studios released their most recent blockbuster movies on streaming this past week with the likes of The Invisible Man, Bloodshot and the last reported number one box office film Onward all doing well on the streaming services.
**UPDATE** It is being reported that cinemas in China are in fact closing down again as a precaution, and to help the global fight against the coronavirus.**UPDATE** In China where the coronavirus has subsided enough for cinemas to reopen, a number of older blockbusters have been re-released in a hope to get people back in the habit of going out to their multiplexes, these include Avatar, some Harry Potter films and a number of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films as well as The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy.
