On its 5th weekend of release, and its 3rd at the top the movie takes £3.422, 20% up from last weekend, for a total of £994,099, so close to a million!

The Secret Garden~2020

Falling from the top, Marc Munden's retelling of the classic novel is at number 2 this weekend with £2,635.

The movie is down 49% from last weekend and has taken a total of £647,560 over 5 weeks of release.

Collective

Collective

Highest new movie of the weekend is this documentary by director Alexander Nanau which takes £1.926 on its debut.

Honest Thief

The Liam Neeson starring revenge thriller directed by Mark Williams falls to number 4 this week with £1,910, a 40% drop from last weekend giving the movie £659,443 over 5 weeks of release.

A Christmas Gift From Bob

Three weeks on the this little feel good movie from director Charles Martin Smith makes its way into the top 5.

The movie has climbed each week its been released and this week takes £1,757, only 5% down from last weekend.

The movie has now taken £6,075 after 3 weeks of release.

The US box office has just passed the $2 Billion mark, its November, for the past few years this has happened in March.

When the pandemic spread around the world, cinemas globally started closing down, in the US this is still ongoing.

This biggest movie of the year in the US is Bad Boys For Life which has taken over $204 Million in the US, and no film will overtake that total this year, the film was released in January of 2020 and had a good run at the box office.

In context of this the biggest movie in the US was Avengers: Endgame which took over $850 Million.

Cinema Closed

To start with all blockbusters started putting their release dates to later in the year or to 2021, but as it became clear that the pandemic would last far longer than originally expected movies started to appear on streaming services.

The effect of this is all those big Hollywood blockbusters that could have, and would have, grossed close a billion either took far less on basically limited release, or nothing due to a DVOD release.

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

Tenet was the first movie with blockbuster potential to be release during the pandemic and although it grossed over $50 Million in the US it was a potential $800 million plus grosser.

Drive-in theatres gave a small lifeline but even a blockbuster in this arena was worth just over a Million.

With a vaccine being likely by year out to hopefully go into mass production for 2021 we can hope that 2020 will go down in history as a one off, although with companies like Disney suggesting it will release future movies on Disney+ as exclusives or day and date releases it could be bad news for the cinema industry.

With no major releases over the last weekend the horror comedy Freaky remained at the top of the US box office for a second weekend.

The highest entry on the chart was the re-release of 1995's The Santa Clause from Disney while the highest new movie of the week was Vanguard at number 7.

Also new this week is The Last Vermeer at number 9 and Gekijouban Fate/Stay Night: Heaven's Feel - III. Spring Song at number 10, while outside the top 10 Buddy Games came in at 13 and The Forgotten Carols at number 15.

US box office Quickview

  • Number 1 - Freaky (2 Weeks)
  • Highest debut - Vanguard (@7)*
  • Longest run - Tenet (12 weeks)*
  • Highest total gross - Tenet ($56,900,000)*
  • *Not including re-releases
