Liam Neeson takes over from Robert De Niro this weekend in Honest Thief which makes a very strong (in the current climate) debut at the top and pushing The War With Grandpa down to number 2.
With last weeks top film falling to number 2 there are a couple of catalogue movies in the lower end of the top 5, expected due to the lack of blockbuster movies getting released.

14th October 2020
Tenet spends a 7th weekend at the top of the UK box office, the longest for 20 years when Toy Story 2 and Gladiator both spent 7 weeks at the top in 2000.
This is unprecedented times but still it is note worthy that a movie can spend that much time at the top although it is with little competition, although After We Collided came close as did Cats & Dogs: Paws Unite! and this weeks top movie Saint Maud.
There are a number of new movies released this Friday and the bets are on that it could be the last weekend for Tenet, or just maybe the top new release this week might make the jump.
What is a worrying trend is the total top 15 this weekend is nearly a million pound down from last, meaning people are either still unsure of returning to cinemas, or they is nothing to draw them back!
Here is the this week UK box office Quickview (not including catalogue re-releases).

The movie has been well reviews with even a hint of Oscar nods so we could see this have a long chart life and it still has a chance to hit the top.

Coupled with bad reviews and not so good word of mouth the movie which was released at the box office last Friday (March 13th) the film will have one of the shortest windows of a major blockbuster.
The self isolation and lockdowns of the world during this unprecedented time of the coronavirus pandemic is setting new standards of box office to home entertainment window.
For big blockbusters the window has always been 3 - 6 months, unlike the 80's and 90's when the window from box office to VHS could be a year or more.
We live in a time now when people have much better home entertainment systems, as opposed to a 14 inch low quality TV with a mono speaker attached and the best way to see a film was at the cinema.
It will be interesting to see if this 'experiment' sets a standard or its just a temporary measure while the world deals with the viral outbreak.
