The saviour of cinema has finally ben released after a couple of delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic closure, and its the first movie since mid-March to gross over a million pound in a weekend.
There is much debate as to weather the movie is the saviour of cinema, and a single big release wont stop many of the cinemas around the UK from sadly closing down, especially as movie theatres can only hace about 25% capacity at the moment.
But it is a start, and it seems despite the social distancing and mask wearing being mandatory until you sit down it good to see a start to the recovery, and with more big movies coming in the following weeks, save from a spike in the pandemic cinema is back.
Its nice to see that in the 9 weeks since cinemas re-opened the total top 15 movies have gone up almost every weekend with last week hitting just under a million pound, this weeks total is £6.1 Million.
Here is the top 5 movies at the UK box office weekend 28th - 31st August 2020.
We waited a long time for this and its finally here, Christopher Nolans mind bending movie makes its debut at the top of the box office with £5.3 Million (including previews).
The movie should hang around on the box office for a while, altohugh a move to VOD quite quick could be on the charts, competition in the coming weeks are Mulan, which is getting a Disney+ release simultaneously, The New Mutants this weekend Bill & Ted Face The Music which has just been brought forward to 16th September and No Time To Die in mid November.
The movie takes an incredible 87% of this weeks total box office taking.

Cinemas closed back in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and since then many movies have had their release date changed or gone directly to VOD at a premium rate, the movie Tenet has for a long time been seen as the movie that will reopen cinemas and bring audiences back.
After a couple of release date changes the movie is here and with this event many more cinemas are re-opening, with safety precautions in place.
With the pandemic still an issue in the US the movie still has another couple of weeks before its release but cinemas are reopening far slower there.
Here is a rundown of this weeks movies, and I suspect one of them will replace one the current number one film, Unhinged, from the top of the box office chart.
Check back on Monday to see if these new releases enter the UK Weekend Box Office Chart.
During the 2020 online DCFanDome to celebrate all things from the DC universe Director Matt Reeves revealed the first trailer and poster for his upcoming The Batman movie.
The movie stars Robert Pattinson as The Dark Knight and is based on The Batman in his early days of crime fighting.
The new trailer gives little to nothing away and is dark, suitably moody and shows Pattinson in his Batman outfit, and has a small amount of action.
What is actually the most incredible thing is that only about 25% of the movie had been shot before the COVID-19 pandemic halted production, and yet they still managed to get a very good trailer complete.
The poster is very good and gives a lot away without giving anything away, like any good teaser poster.
The movie is currently set for an October 1st 2021 release, but with the production only just ready to start again that may change.
