Japan led the way on the global stage this weekend as the animated movie Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train topped the global box office with a record breaking Japanese debut.
China also did well again this weekend as its box office continued to do well in what can be seen as a post COVID-19 re-opening.
Here is the global box office Quickview
Breaking the record for the biggest ever opening for a film in Japan the animated movie took nearly $44 Million on its debut.
A great opening for the Haruo Sotozaki directed movie and a great sign that cinema is open again, in Japan at least.
With Chinese cinema doing well over the last couple of weekends its current number 1 movie falls to number 2 on the global box office with $19.1 Million.
After 3 weeks the movie has now taken $360.2 Million globally.
Getting a release in the US and topping the chart there has given the Liam Neeson movie a massive boost and the film jumps from 18 to number 3 with $4.7 Million globally, up 91% from last weekend.
The film has taken $6.3 Million in total after 2 weeks of release.
The Christopher Nolan movie has had a troubled time at the cinema but despite that its at number 4 this weekend with $4,4 Million.
The film has a global take of $334 Million after 8 weeks of release.
The Tim Hill directed comedy falls to number 5 this week with $2.6 Million over the weekend pushing its total gross to $11.1 Million after 5 weeks of release.
The first image of Tom Holland from the movie adaption of the Playstation video game Uncharted has been released which can be checked out below.
The Spider-man: Far From Home actor plays a younger version of the main character Nathan Drake in an Uncharted origins movie, something only touched on in the games.
The games heavily influenced by the Tomb Raider series which has a sequel to Tomb Raider due early next year, this is heavily influenced by the Indiana Jones series, Indiana Jones 5 is due 2022 so there is plenty of tomb raiding adventures on the horizon.
Also starring in the movie is Mark Wahlberg as Nathans friend and mentor Victor Sullivan, the story will in part focus on how the two met.
The movie is being directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) and has a current release date of 16th July 2021, but with the back catalogue of 2020 film to be released this could move.
Also popping up in the movie, most likely as the bad guy is Antonio Banderas
Deadline are reporting that director Stephen Daldry has left the screen adaptation of hit stage show Wicked.
The film has been in development since at least 2016, but due to scheduling conflicts and other problems it is still in pre-production hell.
The movie was originally scheduled for release on December 20th 2019, ironically the same release date as Cats, another stage to screen adaption which was hit with a very harsh critical panning.
Universal, who own the screen rights, will still go ahead with the adaptation, but they wanted to proceed faster than Daldry was moving ahead with development, and as Deadline reports there is currently no sound stage in the UK free for production to start, and the director was keen to film in England.
There is no need to worry as there are a number of high profile directors ready to take over, including Steven Spielberg who is keen to adapt another stage show after he directed West Side Story, which has been delayed until December 2021.
