Weeks on box office: 8
21st September 2020
After the re-opening of some cinemas across the US, movie theatres continue to open but at a slower rate and the box office has levelled off a bit, although still higher during the height of the pandemic.
Tenet remains at the top of the list as you would expect and the little hyped movie Infidel is the top new movie of the weekend.
For the first time in a few weeks there is a film inside the top 5 that didn't take over a million over the weekend.
Here is the top 5 movie in the US weekend 18th - 20th September 2020.
Another weekend for director Christoper Nolans 'saviour of cinema' as the mixed reviewed movie takes $4.7 Million over its third weekend of release.
This gives the movie a total US gross of $36.1 Million, the movie is being considered a flop, but in these difficult times it was bound to fail, in reality we dont know what would have happened had the situation been normal.
It is looking like the movie could make a move to VOD sooner rather than later, but with many people still not prepared o go the to movie theatre we could see an Onward situation where the movie continues its box office run while available on VOD, a trend which is worrying for the cinema industry.
Disney's troubled mutant movie stays at number 2 this weekend with a gross of $1.6 Million taking its total gross to $17.7 Million after 4 weeks of release.
This has undoubtably been a miss for the studio, but ironically it may make the same money under the pandemic as it would have had it been released normally.
Highest new movie of the week is this political action flick directed and written by Cyrus Nowrasteh who previously brought us The Young Messiah in 2016.
The film takes $1.5 Million on it debut weekend of release and is at number 3.
Another movie which has arguably had more exposure under the COVID-19 pandemic than it would normally is this Russell Crowe film which takes $1.3 Million on its 6th weekend of release for a $15.7 Million total and falls to number 4.
Falling to number 5 this week is the romantic comedy directed by Natalie Krinsky which takes $800K on its second weekend for a total of $2.4 Million.
15th September 2020
As you would expect the saviour of cinema is still the top movie of the week, and unlike last weekend Warner Bros. have released more accurate figures for the weekend gross this time.
Last weekend Warner Bros. only released the total gross for the movie, which included 7 days extra of Canadian release and preview figures for the American release, although to be honest this is nothing new!
Further down the box office list the top 3 movies stay the same while The Broken Hearts Gallery is the top new movie of the weekend and all but 1 of the top 5 grosses over a million for the period.
Here is a rundown of the top 5 movies in North America 11th - 13th September 2020.
Christopher Nolan's much praised, and much disliked, movie spends a second weekend at number 1 with a gross of $6.7 Million, which when compared with last weekends real figure of $9.5 Million as released by Warner Bros. this isn't too bad a drop.
This of course is under unusual circumstances as many cinemas in America are still closed and many more people still dont want to go to the cinema due to health concerns, couple this with the limited capacity and you get a clear picture of how the grosses are working in the current climate.
This has though pushed the movies total North American gross to $29.5 Million over its 2 weekends of release.
Hanging on in second place is Disney's mutant movie which this week takes $2.09 Million in the US.
The movie has a total gross of $15.3 Million after 3 weeks of release.
The Russel Crowe starring movie remains at number 3 taking $1.5 Million over the weekend which gives it a 5 week total gross of $13.8 Million.
Highest new movie of the weekend lans at number 4 and is Natalie Krinsky directorial debut.
The movie takes $1.1 Million on its debut, which is perhaps a little lower than expected especially in the current climate and the romantic escapism the movie offers.
The third Bill And Ted movie falls to number 5 this weekend with $292.6K bringing its 3 week box office total to $2.8 Million.
This has been a real shame for the movie which got a release on streaming the same time as a theatrical release and will have basically destroyed its potential box office gross.
10th September 2020
With cinemas in the UK still not operating anywhere near capacity and couple that with many people still not willing to spend a couple of hours in close proximity to other people tenet spends a second weekend at the top in a weaker box office than last week.
The top film of the weekend is 20th Century Fox's (and hence Disney's) much delayed mutant movie The New Mutants which makes its debut this week and has perhaps been a bit disappointing for many.
With the weakened weekend box office and the potential new spike in the COVID-19 cases the box office is not looking good, and if the likes of Wonder Woman 1984 and No Time To Die get delayed we may not see a full recovery until well into next year.
Here is a breakdown of this week top 5 movies in the UK 4th - 6th September 2020.
Christopher Nolans head scratching new movie which has split opinion among movie goers remains at the top in the UK box office for a second weekend with £2.1 Million.
This puts the movies total UK gross at £10 Million, it is the top movie of the summer period and could well be the top title for weeks to come.
Peerhaps coming in lower than expected the new Disney movie from the X-Men univers makes its debut at number 2 with £686.4K.
It's hard to know where this movie will go from here, it could be a long running movie as Unhinged has been, but if we get the new big blockbusters that are expected in the next couple of months it could sink without trace and end up on Disney+ sooner rather than later.
Directed by Roger Kumble this movie at first was not a top 5 movie but then when figures came in from the distributer it was a top 3 movie!
The film takes £256K on its debut with little in the way of hype or word of mouth.
Pixars computer generated animation falls to it lowest position since it launched on March with a weekend gross of £135.6K.
This puts the movies total gross as £6.9 Million after 13 weeks on the box office.
The Russell Crowe starring thriller drops to number 5 this week with £96.9K for a £1 Million total after 6 weeks of play.
9th September 2020
The saviour of cinema finally gets a US release and in the process of course tops the box office and with a half decent gross, although Warner Bros. are not giving daily totals for the movie and this total is from the movies initial release and takes in 11 days of release data!
With Tenet easily topping the box office with an 11 day opening weekend! The New Mutants falls to number 2 but still with a half decent second weekend gross while many holdovers fill up the other places on the top 5.
Remember that cinemas in the US are still largely closed, and where there are places open they are strictly under limited capacity allowing for social distancing and many people are still not comfortable sitting in a dark room for 2+ hours with total strangers.
Here is a breakdown of this weeks top 5 movies in the US 4th - 6th September 2020.
Christopher Nolans latest directorial movie has had a troubled time making its way to movie theatres but after a couple of delays it has been released into a troubled marketplace where many cinemas in America are still closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This hasn't stopped everyone from enjoying the movie billed as the saviour of cinema as the movie makes its debut in the US to a reported weekend gross of $20.2 Million.
The movie is in this for the long stay and will no doubt encourage people to movie theatres in the coming weeks and months, although a move to VOD could be on the cards sooner rather than later.
The latest mutant movie from the X-Men universe falls to number 2 this weekend with a gross of $3.03 Million, better than would have been expected from the critically panned film.
This pushes the movies total gross in the US to $11.7 Million after 2 weeks of release.
Russell Crowes latest movie may not have made the money expected but it has had a good chart run and this week is at number 3 with $1.8 Million.
This takes the films total gross to $11.4 Million after 4 weeks of release.

The animated movie is still only on release in Canada and this week climbs to number 5 with $345K taking its 4 week gross to $3.3 Million.
