As cinema doors remain closed and those which do open are have very limit capacity the need for a big hit is groweing ever more evident as Tenet remains at the top of the US box office for a 4th weekend.

There was a major shift in release dates last week with many Marvel film moving to 2021 and it looks like the next big hit will be the Bond movie No Time To Die in mid November, unless that moves as well!

With little to excite consumers here is the mini breakdown of the US box office.

  • Number 1 - Tenet
  • Highest debut - Break The Silence: The Movie (@3)
  • Longest run - Unhinged (7 Weeks)
  • Highest total gross - Tenet ($41,200,000)

Here is the top 5 breakdown weekend 25th - 27th September 2020.

Tenet

Christopher Nolan's movie that should have saved cinema after the COVID-19 shutdown spends a 4th weekend at the top with its latest gross of $3.4 Million, 28% down from last weekend.

The movie has now taken a quite reasonable $41.2 Million and should go over $50 quite easily, and if it can keep going into December maybe even $60 Million.

The New Mutants

Still doing well in the current climate is ill fated Disney mutant movie which remains at number 2 this weekend with $1.1 Million, down 37% from last weekend.

A five week run has given the movie $19.4 Million in total grosses in the US.

Break The Silence: The Movie

Break The Silence: The Movie

South Korean pop sensation BTS bring their concert movie to the big screen this week and is the top new movie at 3 with $1 Million.

Unhinged

The movie is has the longest run on the box office this week and takes $1 Million on its 7th weekend of release.

The low budget movie has now taken $17 Million in the US and could potentially take $20 Million before it run ends.

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

Celebrating its 40th anniversary the original Star Wars sequel gets a re-release on the big screen and lands at 5 with $908K, it has grossed $292.1 Million in the US since its 1980 release.

As the hunger for Tenet starts to slow down across the globe it remains at the top of the global box office with a narrow lead over the Chinese movie The Eight Hundred which sits at 2.

With a reflection on how movie studios are once again concerned about the release of their films waiting for an audience there is no new films on the top end of the global box office with the highest debut Infidel at 7 with $1.3 Million.

The Eight Hundred

World box office quickview

  • Number 1 - Tenet
  • Highest debut - Infidel
  • Longest run - Onward (28 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - The Eight Hundred ($425,000,000)

Here is a rundown of the global top 5 movies.

Tenet

The buzz is starting to slow down now but Warner Bros. is seeing the movies box office run as a long term thing rather than short term, this weekend the film took $25.4 Million.

The film has now taken $217.2 Million worldwide after 4 weeks of release.

The Eight Hundred

The Chinese movie that has taken nearly half a billion dollars in its native alone has started to get a release across the rest of the world and this week takes $17.7 Million.

Altohugh its not expected the movie will be as successful outside of China it will be one of the top films of the year (because of COVID-19) and so far had a total global gross of $425 Million.

Mulan

With the Disney movie going direct to VOD in much of the world the box office taking have been severely effected, altohugh tepid reviews wont have helped as the movie takes $10.9 Million this week largely from China.

This pushes the movies total global gross to $57 Million, Disney have not given and VOD data for America or Europe so its hard to compare.

In comparison over the last few years the Disney live action remakes have largely grossed over a Billion collars worldwide.

After We Collided

After We Collided

This sleeper hit from director Roger Kumble is at number 4 this weekend with a weekend gross of $3.8 Million giving the movie a $28.5 Million total after 4 weeks of release.

The New Mutants

At number 5 is the Disney mutant movie which has been given such a hard time, taking $3.5 million over the weekend it has a $35 million total after 4 weeks.

Although not really a fair comparison the last X-Men movie X-Men: Dark Phoenix took $252.4 Million worldwide!

The big budget movie from Warner Bros. and Christopher Nolan, Tenet, remains at the top of the box office in a market still struggling to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, and the figures are suggesting people are still not ready to go back to the movies!

Although Tenet is at the top the movie at number 2, After We Collided, is showing incredible business as it gives the number 1 movie a run for its money.

The top new movie of the week, the third Bill & Teds movie seems a bit of a foot note which is a real shame for the beloved characters, and the film has been given a VOD release along with its theatrical debut.

Its also worth noting that this is the first weekend since cinemas started re-opening that there is not a 'catalogue' film on the chart.

<span class='green'><u><i><b>Tenet</b></i></u></span>

Here is your quick look box office highlights

  • Number 1 - Tenet
  • Highest debut - Bill & Ted Face The Music
  • Longest run - Onward (15 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - Tenet (£13,879,635)

Here is the UK box office top 5 rundown 18th - 20th September 2020.

Tenet

Four weeks on an the 'saviour of cinema' hasn't exactly lived up to its promise and takes under a million with £796.3K, down 35% from last week.

The movie has now made a total of £13.8 Million, not great for such a high budget movie and with tighter restrictions starting to hit the UK again it future is uncertain.

A move to VOD could be on the cards soon, but as Onward has shown films can still make money at the box office while available to view at home.

After We Collided

Remaining at number 2 this week is director Roger Kumble low budget movie which has gone from strength to strength as its theatre count has increased.

This weekend the movie took £598.2K which is up 26% from last weeks gross and 3 weeks in it has taken a total of £1.7 Million.

Bill & Ted Face The Music

Bill & Ted Face The Music

Highest new entry of the weekend lands at number 3 as the Wyld Stallyns try to write their world changing hit!

The Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter starring movie lands with a weekend gross of £462K, far lower than expected and hindered by the pandemic and the VOD dual release.

Its unfair to compare movies in the current box office climate but Bill & Teds Bogus Journey debuted in January 1992 at number 1 with £2.7 Million on its way to £5.4 Million.

Andre Rieu's Magical Maastricht: Together In Music

A yearly event, musician André Rieu releases his latest Event Cinema concert which makes its debut at number 4 this week with a weekend gross of £124.1K.

Again its unfair to compare but his last release from January this year, André Rieu: 70 Years Young, entered the box office at 6 with £1.4 Million.

The New Mutants

Falling to number 5 this week is Disneys ill fated Mutant movie which takes £106.1K over the weekend, down 47%, for a £1.3 Million total.

After the re-opening of some cinemas across the US, movie theatres continue to open but at a slower rate and the box office has levelled off a bit, although still higher during the height of the pandemic.

Tenet remains at the top of the list as you would expect and the little hyped movie Infidel is the top new movie of the weekend.

For the first time in a few weeks there is a film inside the top 5 that didn't take over a million over the weekend.

Here is the top 5 movie in the US weekend 18th - 20th September 2020.

Tenet

Another weekend for director Christoper Nolans 'saviour of cinema' as the mixed reviewed movie takes $4.7 Million over its third weekend of release.

This gives the movie a total US gross of $36.1 Million, the movie is being considered a flop, but in these difficult times it was bound to fail, in reality we dont know what would have happened had the situation been normal.

It is looking like the movie could make a move to VOD sooner rather than later, but with many people still not prepared o go the to movie theatre we could see an Onward situation where the movie continues its box office run while available on VOD, a trend which is worrying for the cinema industry.

The New Mutants

Disney's troubled mutant movie stays at number 2 this weekend with a gross of $1.6 Million taking its total gross to $17.7 Million after 4 weeks of release.

This has undoubtably been a miss for the studio, but ironically it may make the same money under the pandemic as it would have had it been released normally.

Infidel

Infidel

Highest new movie of the week is this political action flick directed and written by Cyrus Nowrasteh who previously brought us The Young Messiah in 2016.

The film takes $1.5 Million on it debut weekend of release and is at number 3.

Unhinged

Another movie which has arguably had more exposure under the COVID-19 pandemic than it would normally is this Russell Crowe film which takes $1.3 Million on its 6th weekend of release for a $15.7 Million total and falls to number 4.

The Broken Hearts Gallery

Falling to number 5 this week is the romantic comedy directed by Natalie Krinsky which takes $800K on its second weekend for a total of $2.4 Million.

Another new poster has appeared online for the new Bond movie No Time To Die featuring 007 actor Daniel Craig with a large gun and ready for action.

It's yet another lacklustre poster, but it does fit in with the marketing campaign that has been seen to date for the movie.

No Time To Die

These posters really don't scream quality, and this new one, intentional or not, looks out of focus and like I knocked it up in Photoshop late last night.

The new movie is set for release on November 12th 2020, but with the current release of Tenet not doing the numbers expected many films are starting to have their release dates shifted again, so there is a possibility it may happen to this Bond movie.

Arguably it could be the real movie to restart the box office, but as its Craig last outing it a risk to take.

Plot outline

The 25th film in the long running James Bond, 007 series. No Time To Die has a retired James Bond living with Madeleine Swann who holds a dark secret. Bond's best friend from the CIA Felix Leiter delivers some news that puts Bond back into action against a new villain, perhaps to a deadly end.
