Highest chart position: 4
Weeks on box office: 1
With the stay at home order issues by the UK government, and the closing of non essential businesses cinemas are still closed and the public are not leaving home, hence there are no new releases at the box office this weekend.
This is going to continue for the coming weeks and it could be late April, early May before things resume to normal.
Its been an interesting week with more films being delayed, most notably Wonder Woman 1984 which was due for release next month has now been moved to August 14th.
Although there was no official box office chart this weekend, the first time since the regular box office was reported, with cinemas not closing down until the middle of the week some figures were reported and The Invisible Man would have been the top film in the UK.
Also across the globe there was some countries reporting box office figures, and Trolls World Tour would have been the top movie of the week.
Many studios released their most recent blockbuster movies on streaming this past week with the likes of The Invisible Man, Bloodshot and the last reported number one box office film Onward all doing well on the streaming services.
**UPDATE** It is being reported that cinemas in China are in fact closing down again as a precaution, and to help the global fight against the coronavirus.**UPDATE** In China where the coronavirus has subsided enough for cinemas to reopen, a number of older blockbusters have been re-released in a hope to get people back in the habit of going out to their multiplexes, these include Avatar, some Harry Potter films and a number of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films as well as The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy.

Cinemas and hence box office takings have been hit hard with the coronavirus outbreak and with many people choosing not to leave their homes Onward remained at the top although with a big drop from the previous weekend, The Hunt defied expectations and was the top new film at number 3.
Pixars latest movie remained at the top of the UK box office over the weekend altohugh the gross for the movie was 62% down from the previous weekend as the film took £1.2 Million.
This brings the films total UK gross to £5.2 Million after 2 weeks of release.
Onward is the only film on the UK box office this weekend which has taken over a Million pound.
Remaining at number 2 this week is the Universal monster movie which takes £827,746.
This pushes the movies total gross to £6.5 Million after 3 weeks of release.
The movie is being released on home streaming platforms next week for $19.99 and a similar situation can be expected in the UK in the coming weeks.
Highest new film of the week is the latest film from director Craig Zobel which makes its debut at number 3 with £542,475.
After bad reviews from critics and audiences alike the new superhero movie starring Vin Diesel can only manage a number 4 debut with £444,917.
This can be seen as the first movie to suffer from the coronavirus pandemic as despite this the movie would have scored a much higher debut, many film set for release in the coming weeks have been delayed including Diesel's own Fast and Furious 9.
In a surprising, but expected move the studio has announced the movie will be released on streaming services in the US from next Tuesday, March 24th which may well kill the film box office run.
Interestingly over the Monday - Sunday week the film would not have hit the top 5 making its debut at number 8!
The film about a women singing group comprising wives of men in active service drops to number 5 this weekend with £407,409 giving the film a £2.3 Million total after 2 weeks.
Over the Monday - Sunday week the film would have been number 3 with a weekend gross of £1.4 Million.
The much praised and awarded war movie is the highest total grossing move this week with £43.7 Million and the movie with the longest chart run with 10 weeks.
Following a trend set by Universal with The Invisible Man and Warner Bros. with Birds Of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn), Bloodshot starring Vin Diesel will get a release on digital March 24th, next Tuesday!
Coupled with bad reviews and not so good word of mouth the movie which was released at the box office last Friday (March 13th) the film will have one of the shortest windows of a major blockbuster.
The self isolation and lockdowns of the world during this unprecedented time of the coronavirus pandemic is setting new standards of box office to home entertainment window.
For big blockbusters the window has always been 3 - 6 months, unlike the 80's and 90's when the window from box office to VHS could be a year or more.
We live in a time now when people have much better home entertainment systems, as opposed to a 14 inch low quality TV with a mono speaker attached and the best way to see a film was at the cinema.
It will be interesting to see if this 'experiment' sets a standard or its just a temporary measure while the world deals with the viral outbreak.
18th March 2020
As cinemas close and people decide to remain indoors due to the global coronavirus pandemic Pixar's Onward remains at the top while the Vin Diesel starring Bloodshot is the top new entry at number 2.
Pixars latest film is definitely feeling the effects of deserted cinemas as it takes only $10.6 Million on its second weekend of release.
This is down nearly 75% from last weeks total and puts the movies total at $60.3 Million.
One small glimer of hope is that Pixar films do tend to have longevity and providing the cinema closures in many US states is lifted in April and the schools might still be closed this movie could make money late in its run.
Many new films have had their release dates moved due to the viral outbreak but this movie still got a release, and maybe coupled with bad reviews and word of mouth the movie enters at number 2 but to only $9.1 Million.
The road ahead does not look good for the movie and the studio may just cut its losses in the coming weeks and put the film on streaming way before expected.
The faith based movie has a good opening weekend and makes its debut at number 3 with $9.1 Million.
Falling to number 4 is the Universal monster movie which takes $5.8 Million over the weekend.
This puts the movies total gross at $64.3 Million after 3 weeks of release and you cant help thinking the movie would be over the $100 million mark in a normal market.
Universal have announced that the movie will be released on streaming for $19.99 this coming Friday so it will be interesting to see what effect this has on the film box office performance, even with all the cinema closures.
Making its debut at number 5 is this Craig Zobel directed movie which takes $5.3 Million over the weekend.
14 weeks on the the Jake Kasdan directed movie is the longest running film on the box office and with $316.7 Million it is also the highest total grossing film this week.
18th March 2020
With the global coronavirus pandemic stopping much of the world from leaving home to go to a movie theatre Vin Diesels new movie superhero movie makes its debut at number 1 dropping Onward to number 2.
Making its debut at the top of the global box office this week is Vin Diesel's foray into the superhero realm which makes its debut at the top with $24.4 Million from 51 countries.
The film got bad reviews from critics and public alike and despite people not venturing out the house to movie theatre it is hard to say if the film would have done much better if they had.
The road ahead does not look good and with Universal and Warner both announcing today the recent box office films are hitting streaming on Friday this could join the list sooner rather than later.
The new Pixar film is also suffering from the fear of the coronavirus and the movie falls to number 2 this week with $17.3 Million from 48 countries.
This brings the movies total gross to $101.6 Million after 2 weeks of release, and despite the good reviews and word of mouth this will end up on the lower end of Pixar movies box office.
The Universal monster movie falls to 3 this week with $12.2 Million from 66 countries for a $122.7 Million total gross after 3 weeks.
This faith based movie is at 4 this week take a very good $9.7 Million from just 6 countries, this means the road ahead could look better than expected.
Also new this week is the new movie from director Craig Zobel which takes $6.02 Million from just 5 countries.
Next weeks box office will be interesting as many countries including Italy, France, Germany, UK and America are either locking down or recommending people stay indoors and many new releases and getting put back to later in the year meaning the box office takings for the next few weeks might not fully reflect what could have been.
