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.

<span class='green'><u><i><b>The Eight Hundred</b></i></u></span>

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.


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.


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!

Last week saw Tenet remain at the top of the UK box office for a third weekend but can any of this weeks new releases do enough to top the chart this weekend?

As Tenet opens up in more of the world it easily takes over at the top of the global box office ahead of the Chinese movie The Eight Hundred.

The global box office is still feeling the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the biggest movie to go direct to VOD got a cinema release in some countries and Mulan is the top new movie of the weekend.

Here is a breakdown of the top 5 movies across the globe 4th - 6th September 2020.


The Christopher Nolan directed movie gets a release across much more of the world this weekend, including America, and tops the global box office easily with $126 Million.

This pushes the films total global gross to $146.2 Million after 2 weeks of release.

The Eight Hundred

The Chinese hit movie falls to number 2 this week with a gross of $34 Million pushing the films total gross to $336.2 Millon after 4 weeks of release.

The New Mutants

Like Tenet the Mutant movie from 20th Century Fox under the Disney banner got released in more of the world this week and took $12.7 Million globally over the weekend.

This pushes the movie total gross to $20.8 Million after 2 weeks of release.



Controversially released onto Disney+ simultaneously with a cinema release the Disney live action remake makes its debut on the global chart at number 3 this weekend with $5.9 Million from 9 countries, but not America.

This movie was to be a tentpole for Disney this year and was pulled from release days before it was set to go global in mid March as the pandemic hit and closed most of the worlds cinemas.


The Russell Crowe starring movie falls to 5 this weekend with $1.9 Million taking its total gross to $23.8 Million after 6 weeks of release.

The film billed as the saviour of cinema for many weeks and months has finally been released as Christopher Nolan's much anticipated Tenet is seen across much of the world with a debut inside the global top 5.

The movies release is the first sign that cinemas are starting to open across the globe albeit with social distancing and mandatory mask wearing in many territories.

The top movie of the week is still The Eight Hundred but there are also new releases from The New Mutants, and missing out on a debut on the top 5 Bill And Ted Face The Music, although there is a good reason for that!

Here is the top 5 global movies for weekend 28th - 30th August 2020.

The Eight Hundred

The Chinese movie has done massive numbers in its native territory and this weekend remains at the top of the global box office with a take of $161 Million.

This brings the movies total global gross to $277 Million after 3 weeks of release and may soon to become the top movie globally of 2020.



The world has waited a long time, not only for this new movie from Christopher Nolan which has been delayed a couple of time but for a movie which audiences can get excited about since cinemas closed in the middle of March die to the coronavirus pandemic.

With many countries, especially America, still not opening cinema doors, and with many countries having limited capacity the movies total box office gross is lower than could have been, the movie took $53.6 Million and there is no way of telling at the moment if thats good or bad!

As more countries open and cinemas relax their limited capacity even more this movie could hang around for a while, even if Warner Bros. decide to release it onto streaming quite quick.

Love You Forever

With the Chinese cinema open more than most other countries its no surprise that films from their box office are doing well.

Moving to number 3 this week is this love story which takes $9.9 Million over the weekend taking its total gross to $60.5 Million.

The New Mutants

The X-Men universe movie has had a troubles time with release dates, originally scheduled for a 2018 release then delayed, then hit with more delays due to the COVID-19 closures, but its finally made it to cinemas and enters the global box office at number 4 with just under $10 Million.

Like fellow new entry Tenet the movie got released in a handful of cinemas and is still yet to be released in much of the world, so expect a growing gross over the coming weeks, although a Disney+ release can be expected soon.


Pixars latest movie falls to number 4 this weekend with $6 Million giving the movie a global gross of $141 Million over 25 weeks of release.

As the global box office starts to recover figures are still limited to the studios willing to share them, but with the Chinese box office seemingly doing well The Eight Hundred is the top film of the weekend.

There are no new releases this week as the world waits the the saviour of cinema Tenet to be released next weekend but catalogue films once again do well.

With the starts of the revitalised box office in the UK and some new releases in the US, like Bill And Ted Face The Music, next weeks chart could be a lot different.

Here is the top 5 worldwide box office movies 21st - 23rd August 2020.

The Eight Hundred

Having been released in the Chinese market now for a couple of weeks the action adventure movie from director Hu Guan takes $8.2 Million over the weekend and is the countries top movie.

The movie in the top film this weekend in Australia, United Kingdom and United States.


The Pixar movie would have been a massive hot for the CGI studio had it not been for the pandemic, but still 24 weeks on the movie is still on the global box office.

The movie is number 1 in Italy this weekend.
