About 'The War With Grandpa'
Peter and his grandpa used to be very close, but when Grandpa Jack moves in with the family, Peter is forced to give up his most prized possession, his bedroom.

Peter will stop at nothing to get his room back, scheming with friends to devise a series of pranks to drive him out. However, grandpa doesn't give up easily, and it turns into an all-out war between the two.

Liam Neeson takes over from Robert De Niro this weekend in Honest Thief which makes a very strong (in the current climate) debut at the top and pushing The War With Grandpa down to number 2.

With last weeks top film falling to number 2 there are a couple of catalogue movies in the lower end of the top 5, expected due to the lack of blockbuster movies getting released.

2 hearts

Further down the chart there are a few new movies, 2 Hearts is new at number 6, Love And Monsters makes its debut at number 9 and The Kid Detective one below at number 10.

Here is this weeks US box office Quickview.

  • Number 1 - Honest Thief (1st Week)
  • Highest debut - Honest Thief (@1)
  • Longest run - Unhinged (10 weeks)
  • Highest total gross (excluding re-releases) - Tenet ($50,600,000)

Here is the breakdown of this weeks US top 5 movies 16th - 18th October 2020.

Honest Thief

Liam Neeson returns to the revenge action genre with this movie directed by Mark Williams which makes its North American debut at the top with $4.2 Million (including previews), $3.7 Million Friday - Sunday.

This is not a bad debut in the current COVID-19 climate and is among the top debuts since cinemas started to reopened.

The War With Grandpa

Falling to number 2 after a single week at the top is the Tim Hill directed comedy starring Robert De Niro which this weekend taked $2.5 Million, falling 31% from last weekend.

This gives the movie a total US gross of $7.2 Millon after 10 days of release.

Tenet

Seven weeks on and Christopher Nolan's movie falls to number 3 with $1.6 Million which is a 24% drop from last weekend.

The movie has now taken $50 Million in the US the highest total grossing on the box office this week.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

The Nightmare Before Christmas

First released in 1994 the Henry Selick directed movie, presented by Tim Burton of course, gets a re-release and takes a very impressive $1.3 million on its first weekend as it enters at number 4.

The movie has taken $76.4 Million since it was first released 26 years ago.

Hocus Pocus

Another Halloween favourite on its 3rd weekend of a re-release takes $756K, a 35% drop from last weekend.

The movie has now taken $3.8 Million on its re-run and $43.3 Million since first released in 1993.

The two big Chinese hits My People, My Homeland and Legend Of Deification are still the biggest films across the globe this weekend but The Wars With Grandpa and Greenland make good ground as they open in more countries.

Here is the global box office top 15 Quickview.

  • Number 1 - My People, My Homeland (2 weeks)
  • Highest debut - NONE
  • Longest run - Trolls World Tour (24 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - Tenet ($323,500,000)

This weeks global top 5 breakdown 9th - 11th October 2020.

My People, My Homeland

This Chinese smash sequel from directors Hao Ning and Sicheng Chen stays at the top for a second weekend with $41.1 Million, 73% down from last weekend.

This gives the movie a total gross globally of $312.1 Million.

Legend Of Deification

Remaining at number 2 for a second weekend is the animated tale from directors Teng Cheng and Li Wei which takes $11.3 Million, a 93% drop from last weekend.

The movie has now taken $163.2 Million globally, but its only been released in China so far!

Tenet

Loosing momentum but still at number 3, Christopher Nolans movie takes $9.8 Million over the weekend, a 31% drop, for a total of $323.5 Million.

The War With Grandpa

<span class='green'><u><i><b>The War With Grandpa</b></i></u></span>

The Robert De Niro starring movie gets a US release this week and goes back up to number 4 with $9.8 Million, 86% up from last weekend, giving it a total global gross of $5.4 Million.

Greenland

The latest Gerard Butler movie is getting a direct to VOD release in many parts of the world but where it is out its doing well and goes up to number 5 this weekend with $2.8 Million, up 83%.

The movie has taken $29 Million globally after 10 weeks of release.

With cinemas in the US having a hard time with a mixture of closures and re-openings in different states not to mention the lack of big new releases its good to see a new number 1 movie and one starring a big name.

Robert De Niro stars in the kids movie The War With Grandpa which quite easily tops the US box office this weekend pushing Tenet down to the runner up spot.

With no big blockbuster movies hitting cinemas until Christmas there is a chance we could see a lot of yo-yo'ing on the box office iver the coming weeks, and a ot of smaller independent movies doing better than expected.

Here is this weeks US box office Quickview.

  • Number 1 - War With Grandpa (1st Week)
  • Highest debut - War With Grandpa (@1)
  • Longest run - Unhinged (9 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back ($292,674,960)

Here is the US box office top 5 breakdown 9th - 11th October 2020

The War With Grandpa

Director Tim Hill's new movie gets released during a period when there is very little in the way of competition and coupled with its high profile star Robert De Niro the movie takes over at the top with a weekend gross of $3.6 Million.

The movie is squarely aimed at children and time will tell if it has enough for a long run at the top and with Tenet a continuous threat to reclaim the top and a new Liam Neeson action movie out this weekend it could be a short spell.

Tenet

Christopher Nolans mind bending movie falls from the top after 5 weeks with a weekend gross of $2.1 Million this weekend, 22% down from last weekend.

This gives the movie a 6 week total gross of $48.3 Million and is by a wide margin the top movie of recent months despite the fact it is being seen as a flop, but during the current time of closures what is a decent gross.

Hocus Pocus

Hocus Pocus

The 27 year old Halloween favourite drop to number 3 this weekend with $1.1 Million, the movie has now taken $42.6 Million since its release in 1993.

This weekends gross is 40% down from last weeeknd.

The New Mutants

The mutant movie from Disney starring Maisie Williams falls to number 3 this weekend with $685K, 34% down from last weekend, taking its gross to $21.9 Million after 7 weeks of release.

Unhinged

Falling to number 5 this weekend is the Russell Crowe starring movie which takes $660K this weekend, 22% down from last weekend, for a very nice $19.3 Million over 9 weeks of release.
