This weekend at the US box office Let Him Go hit the top of the US box office on its debut weekend of release pushing last weeks top movie to number 2.

It was a quiet weekend on the box office as cinemas continue to open, then close, then open again in the ever changing circumstances surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.

Inside the top 15 the original Toy Story was also a new release at number 6 and The Dark And The Wicked made its debut at number 11.

Let Him Go

Starring Diane Lane and Kevin Costner this powerful drama hits the top of the US box office on its debut weekend with $4.1 Million.

It is the highest weekend gross for a movie since Tenet was released back in August and perhaps shows sign of a recovering box office.

Come Play

The Jacob Chase made its debut at the top of the box office last weekend but falls to number 2 this weekend with $1.73 Million, down 45% from last weekend.

Post halloween this drop would have been expected but it does push the movies total gross to $5.66 Million after 2 weeks of release.

The War With Grandpa

Christopher Nolan's hit movie falls to number 5 this weekend with $905,000, an increase rom last weekend of 2%.

A very slow week on the home entertainment charts this week with films flip-flopping wound like they done know what to do, Bad Boys For Life goes back to the top and A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood is the top new film.

Here is a breakdown of the top 5 movies.

Bad Boys For Life

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence star in this return of their buddy cops set in Miami, the film has been on the chart for 3 weeks now and goes back to the top.

1917

Sam Mendes much praised single shot war movie falls from the top to number 2 on its 4th week of release.

Little Women

Director Greta Gerwig brings up her adaptation of the much loved novel that goes back up the chart to number 3 on its 3rd week of release.

Onward

Pixars first new IP in a number of years had its box office run cut short but has lived well in the home entertainment market where it falls to number 3 on its 4th week of release.

Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker

The Star Wars movie that truly split the fan base and ended the 9 film saga falls to number 5 this week, its 7th week of release.

A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood

A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood

Tom Hanks gives a steller supporting performance as Mr. Rodgers in this true life tale of the famed American children's entertainer.

As the subject matter was not known in the UK the film had to rely on its star power to pull in audiences, hence the film didn't do that well in the UK makings its debut in late January at number 8 on the box office.

The film only hung around for a couple of weeks taking just £1.8 Million.

Here is the full top 10 home entertainment titles this week.

  1. Bad Boys For Life
  2. 1917
  3. Little Women
  4. Onward
  5. Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker
  6. Cats
  7. Frozen II
  8. A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood
  9. Jumanji: The Next Level
  10. The Greatest Showman

Star Wars fans around the world have their opinion of what is the best lighsaber battle in the Star Wars movie franchise, so on this Star Wars day at 25thframe.co.uk we though we would give our opinion of what we think is the best battle seen on screen in the ever growing list of movies.

5. Rey Vs. Kylo Ren (with help from Finn) from Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

There had been a Star Wars drought for a number of years (10 years) and with the buyout of Lucasfilms still fresh in everyones minds as well as the (at the time) badly received prequel trilogy the fan base wanted a good Star Wars movie.

JJ Abrahams was put in charge of directing the film, a life long fan of the series, and he delivered in spades, bringing arguably the best Star Wars film to date.

We instantly took to the new characters of the Rebel Alliances Rey and the First Orders Kylo Ren, and with Rey's force powers hinted at throughout, the dual between the two was inevitable, and at the end of the film Abrahams delivered, set within a forest of the Star Killer Base while the planet explodes around them.

4. Yoda Vs. Count Dooku from Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones

We knew Yoda was a Jedi Master and that he had fought in the Clone Wars that started at the end of the second part of prequel trilogy, and George Lucas knew he had to deliver.

As Yoda walks into the hanger where Count Dooku was trying to board his ship you simply knew what was about to happen, and as he pulls across his robes to reveal a small lightsaber this was the moment, he force pulls his weapon to his hand and turns it on.

The battle doesn't last long, but seeing the small green Jedi Master who usually finds it hard to walk bouncing around the walls during the fight is a joy.

3. Obi Wan Kenobi Vs. Darth Vader from Star Wars

Star Wars

The original movie introduces us to the legendary weapon, something not really seen on the big screen before but throught the stories Ben Kenobi tells Luke during the movie we know that the weapon is elegant and the Jedi are lethal with it.

We also believe at this time that Darth Vader is the arch enemy of Ben Kenobi, and by the end of the movie there has to be a metting of the two, and while trying to escape the Death Star the two come face to face.

Despite the technological abilities in special effects at the time this thrilled fans of a generation and when the inevitable happens at the end we are shocked at the loss of our new hero.

2. Luke Skywalker vs. Darth Vader on Cloud City from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

This battle comes as no surprise, we have seen Luke go through the training, and go off to rescue his friends, and we get the foreshadowing fof things to come on Dagobah.

When Luke goes into the carbon freeze chamber and the two enemies ignight their sabers in low light we get the almighty battle between the two enemies.

The style and technology used in this film is so much greater than that of the original Star Wars that it feels fresh and thrilling, and at the end of the battle we get one of cinemas greatest reveals, so good to this day it is celebrated as THE movie twist of all times.

1. Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi Vs. Darth Maul from Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace

Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace

The movie gets a lot of criticism, but over the last 20 years time has been kind and in the grander scheme of the saga the fan base is looking at this film more favourably, and it has the best lighsaber battle of all time.

It had been 16 years since we'd had any proper Star Wars to enjoy and despite the film not getting the critical reaction Lucas wanted the Dual Of Fates was spectacular.

The highlight is at the start of the battle as Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan face the Sith Lord Darth Maul, as the John Williams music 'Duel Of Fates' starts to get more intense Maul ignites a single blade on his lightsaber, then the money shot happens and another blade appears from the other side, every Star Wars Fan looked on in amazement as the incredible battle unfolds between the 3 warriors.

The only real shame is that, inevitably, Darth Maul dies at the end of the movie, although in quiet spectacular style, but with little screen time fans wanted more, although as seen in Solo: A Star Wars Story they have brought him back and who knows if he'll appear in another movie or not?

With many studios removing their theatrical movies from their original release dates to new ones because of the cinema closures, Disney have not rescheduled any of their films and today announce that Artemis Fowl will go direct to Disney+.

Disney+

The film was originally set for release on 9th August 2019 before being moved to 29th May 2020, but unlike many of the studios schedule, like Mulan, Disney have decided to give the Kenneth Branagh directed adaptation of the Eoin Colfer book to their streaming service, there is no date yet when it will appear there.

This is a very interesting move from one of the most powerful studios in the world, and lets hope not, but could show the way forward for studios in this difficult time.

Maybe we will see a time when the big, potential $1 Billion movies, will get moved to other release windows, but the smaller films will go straight to streaming so there is not a massive back catalogue of films to get out in cinemas.

Time will tell, and with no sign of cinemas reopening there is no way to tell if some bigger movies will get the home entertainment treatment as well.
