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.

Tenet

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.

Mulan~2020

Mulan

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.

Unhinged

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.

Tenet

Tenet

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.

Onward

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 has now taken $116 Million in its native terretory with a release in other countries still to come.

Unhinged

Unhinged

The Derrick Borte directed movie is at number 2 and takes $4.7 Million over the weekend from multiple territories for a $13.6 Million total after 4 weeks of release.

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

Onward

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.

This weekend the movie is at number 3 and takes $4.5 Million taking its total to $116.9 Million.

The movie is number 1 in Italy this weekend.

Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone

The first harry Potter movie falls to number 4 this weekend after its 'debut' at the top last weekend with $4.1 Million.

The movie has taken just over a Billion dollars since its release, 19 years ago!

Yarn

This Japanese love story is the top film in its native country this week and sits at number 5 on the global box office with $2.2 MIllion.

The movie has taken $3.5 Million in total.

In this age where there are no new movies (just yet) getting released and studios are re-releasing 'classic' catalogue films to get people to go back to movie theatres that a 19 year old Harry Potter movies is the top global release of the week.

We are still a couple of weeks away from Tenet, being championed as the saviour of cinema, is released so the box office is largely filled with re-releases and low budget horror movies, and as China and Japan seem to be getting back to normal there is a number of films from those territories doing well.

Here is the top 5 worldwide movies weekend 14th - 16th August 2020.
