The good news is we got a box office chart this weekend, the bad news is only due to the lockdown effecting most of the UK only 22 cinemas were open and the top movie took most of its weekend gross from the previous weekend!
Documentary feature The Three Kings was the top movie of the weekend, it knocked off Two By Two: Overboard! to number 3, but the whole top 15 took just over £19,00.
Outside the top 5, sequel movie A Christmas Gift From Bob made its debut at 9 with £757.
Here is this weeks top 15 Quickview
Here is a breakdown of the top 5 movies on the UK box office 6th - 8th November 2020
The documentary feature from Jonny Owen makes its debut at number 1 with a weekend gross of £3,521, altohugh £3,470 was from preview screenings meaning it took £51 over the weekend which would have given Honest Thief the top position.
The film is about 3 of the greatest Scottish footballer managers of all time, and with most, if not all, cinemas in the UK allowed to open are in Scotland during the lockdown this is perhaps no surprise.
This is a number 1 due to extreme and unique circumstances, congratulations to Jonny Owen and the film makers for the number 1 but I suspect the movie will disappear next weekend.
Jumping back up to number 2 is the Liam Neeson vehicle which takes £2,922 over the weekend, 98% down from last weekend which gives the movie a £651,408 total after 3 weeks.
Falling from the top to number 3 is the animated movies about animals on the ark which takes £2,374 over the weekend, 99% down from last weekend.
The animated feature has had a great box office run in the COVID-19 era and has not taken just under a million pound over 3 weeks.
Entering the box office at number 4 this weekend is director Thor Freudenthal movie which takes £1,709 on its debut weekend.
Adapted from the children's novel and starring starring Julie Walters, Colin Firth the movie drops to number 5 this weekend with £1,709, a 99% drop, which gives the movie a total gross of £664,051.

We all know there are no new big blockbusters coming out at the moment, and Tenet is still at the top for a 6th weekend, but comparing this to the amazing 6 week number 1 run of Joker from 2019 is unfair.
I suspect Tenet would not have been a 6 weeks number 1 under normal circumstances, 2 maybe 3 at the most, and although the total gross in the UK would have been in the £10 of million it would not have had the press the movie got.
Still we are where we are and its till the top film in the UK, and Cats & Dogs: Paws Unite! is the top new film at number 2!
Here is a quick look breakdown of this week top 15 box office.
Here is a breakdown of the top 5 movies in the UK 2nd - 4th October 2020.
The Christopher Nolan directed movie is now 6 weeks at number 1 equalling the runs of The World Is Not Enough (1999) and Joker (2019), it takes just £628.2K this weekend which is only 3% down from last weekend.
This puts the movies total gross at £15.9 Million after 6 weeks, and as expected it is the top grossing movie since cinemas re-opened and the 6th highest of 2020 overtaking Dolittle.
Top new movies of the weekend is the third film in the Cats & Dogs series which takes £456.5K on its debut.
This is a movie very much aimed at children, can we expect a massive drop next weekend or will the current climate keep it in the top 5?
After a fantastic start to its box office run the Roger Kumble directed teen drama falls to number 3 this weekend with £390.2K, a drop of 24% from last weekend.
The movie has now taken quite an amazing £3.1 Million after 5 weeks of release.
The movie has now entered the top 20 movies for 2020 at number 20 and with its current pace at the box office could go higher.
The third Bill & Ted movie has had a hard time with its box office takings, but it does spend a third weekend on the chart this weekend with a gross of £146.5K, although this is a 32% drop from last weekend.
This gives the movie a 3 week total of just over £1 Million, not bad for a movie which can onto VOD day and date with cinema.
Both new releases in the top 5 this weekend were children's film and this Ute von Munchow-Pohl directed movie lands at 5 with £131.3K on its debut.
As the blockbuster movies from 2020 slowly get delayed until 2021 the latest to move in unsurprisingly Denis Villeneuve's Dune adaptation will will now see a release on October 1st 2021.
This is, at the moment, the same release date as The Batman starring Robert Pattinson and directed by Matt Reeves, so I suspect that might be on the move as well as its currently still in production and has been hit with CODIV-19 while filming which has caused delays.
This only leaves Death On The Nile and Wonder Woman 1984, and maybe Free Guy which got a new trailer today, left as movies to come out in 2020 that can be considered major blockbusters (Coming 2 America surely isn't ready yet!).
Last week the latest Bond movie No Time To Die got moved to April 2021 leaving the release schedule rather empty.
As I have written about today this is very worrying for the cinema industry that has started to, for the second time this year, shut down, this time not just because of COVID-19, through lack of films being shown.
2021 is shaping up to be one of the biggest ever year for blockbusters and at the moment we have not only some of the biggest films of 2020 now next year but all the films that should have come out in 2021!

Cinemas closed back in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and since then many movies have had their release date changed or gone directly to VOD at a premium rate, the movie Tenet has for a long time been seen as the movie that will reopen cinemas and bring audiences back.
After a couple of release date changes the movie is here and with this event many more cinemas are re-opening, with safety precautions in place.
With the pandemic still an issue in the US the movie still has another couple of weeks before its release but cinemas are reopening far slower there.
Here is a rundown of this weeks movies, and I suspect one of them will replace one the current number one film, Unhinged, from the top of the box office chart.
Check back on Monday to see if these new releases enter the UK Weekend Box Office Chart.
29th April 2020
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.
Odeon Cinemas owner bans all Universal films after studio said it will release new movies at home and on the big screen on the same dayhttps://t.co/rlWk7Svrxa— BBC News (UK) (@BBCNews) April 29, 2020
