10th November 2020
The good news is we got a box office chart this weekend, the bad news is only due to the lockdown effecting most of the UK only 22 cinemas were open and the top movie took most of its weekend gross from the previous weekend!
Documentary feature The Three Kings was the top movie of the weekend, it knocked off Two By Two: Overboard! to number 3, but the whole top 15 took just over £19,00.
Outside the top 5, sequel movie A Christmas Gift From Bob made its debut at 9 with £757.
Here is this weeks top 15 Quickview
Here is a breakdown of the top 5 movies on the UK box office 6th - 8th November 2020
The documentary feature from Jonny Owen makes its debut at number 1 with a weekend gross of £3,521, altohugh £3,470 was from preview screenings meaning it took £51 over the weekend which would have given Honest Thief the top position.
The film is about 3 of the greatest Scottish footballer managers of all time, and with most, if not all, cinemas in the UK allowed to open are in Scotland during the lockdown this is perhaps no surprise.
This is a number 1 due to extreme and unique circumstances, congratulations to Jonny Owen and the film makers for the number 1 but I suspect the movie will disappear next weekend.
Jumping back up to number 2 is the Liam Neeson vehicle which takes £2,922 over the weekend, 98% down from last weekend which gives the movie a £651,408 total after 3 weeks.
Falling from the top to number 3 is the animated movies about animals on the ark which takes £2,374 over the weekend, 99% down from last weekend.
The animated feature has had a great box office run in the COVID-19 era and has not taken just under a million pound over 3 weeks.
Entering the box office at number 4 this weekend is director Thor Freudenthal movie which takes £1,709 on its debut weekend.
Adapted from the children's novel and starring starring Julie Walters, Colin Firth the movie drops to number 5 this weekend with £1,709, a 99% drop, which gives the movie a total gross of £664,051.

4th November 2020
With what could be the last UK box office chart in the UK for at least the next 4 weeks the animated feature Two By Two: Overboard! hangs on to the top spot for a second weekend.
Making an incredible Halloween leap up the chart is Hocus Pocus and the top new movie of the week is a remake/reboot in the shape of The Craft: Legacy.
Here is the UK box office Quickview.
Here is a breakdown of the UK box office top 5 30th October - 1st November 2020.
The animated feature from directors Toby Genkel and Sean McCormack spends a second weekend at the top of the UK box office with £190,761 down 42% from last weekend.
This leaves the movie with a total gross just shy of 1 million, £955,370, the movie could go over the million mark if can survive cinema closures.
Making an incredible leap up the box office from 8 to 2 and with a 71% increase from last week with £186,063 giving the movie £3.6 Million since release in 1993.
The reason for this box office run seems to be the classic status the movie has gained in the last 25+ years and that their is a hunger for movies on the big screen and with no big blockbusters this is filling the need.
The Liam Neeson starring revenge thriller falls to number 2 this week with £152,555, 40% down, for a total UK gros of £573,598 after 2 weeks of release.
The classic novel adaptation starring Julie Walters and Colin Firth falls to number 4 this week with £142,101, down just 8% from last week.
The movie is actually doing quite well in the COVID-19 era and has taken £615,981 after 2 weeks of release.
The teen gothic remake makes its debut this week at number 5 with a debut gross of £119,680.
Comparing it to the original movie from 1996 is unfair mainly because of the pandemic, but out of interest it was release in 1996 at the same time of year and took £1.16 Million on its debut for a total UK gross of £2.7 Million.
Despite the favourable reviews this remake will come nowhere near those figures.
