Topping this week from what is now over a thousand cinemas open we have the 1993 classic Steven Spielberg movie Jurassic Park while the top new film is follows at number 8.
Here is a breakdown of this weeks 'top 5'.
Released in 1993 this was the first movie to use CGI effects to a large degree and make it a central character, and the film was a monster hit and was for a time the highest grossing movie in the world.
The movie has had a couple of re-releases and this week it is the top grossing movie in the US with a weekend gross of $517K, its total gross is $403.8 Million over 27 years!
Director Steven Spielberg again is at number 2, this time with his timeless classic shark movie which celebrates 45 years this year.
The movie takes $516K this week which pushes the films total US gross to $260 Million over its 45 years of release.
Back to modern movies and after spending 10 weeks on the chart 15 weeks after release (it had a few weeks out of cinemas when they first closed down), the Universal movie takes $201K pushing its total to $64.9 Million.
Considering this animated sequel got a lot of press for going direct to VOD the movie is at number 4 this week having taken $160K for a $3.8 Million total after 6 weeks.
At number 5 this week is this horror movie which seems to be getting a bit of a cult following and this weekend takes $136K for a $5.8 Million total after 7 weeks.
Highest new entry of the week is at number 8, this low budget horror movie based on a serial killer not liking people following them on social media has taken $107K over the weekend.
