10th July 2020
With US cinemas still showing no signs of fully re-opening due a massive surge i the COVID-19 pandemic the box office figures are still largely relying on drive-ins
This week the low budget Relic hits the top of the 'box office' on its debut with the rest of the charts moving around but the numbers are all quite small!
Here is a rundown of the top 5 movies in the US 3rd - 5th July 2020.
Directed by Natalie Erika James on her debut this low budget horror movie stars Emily Mortimer and takes $192K on its debut and is the top movie of the week.
The movie has now surely reached cult status and has been the most dominant movie during the pandemic closures and this week it moves back to number 2 with $25K.
After 10 weeks the movie has now made $1.6 Million at the US box office.
The Antoine Le directed movie is at 3 this week with $23K and after 3 weeks has taken $423K.
5 weeks in and the Lulu Wilson starring movie takes $20K for the weekend and $903K in total.
Channing Godfrey Peoples directs this movie about a black beauty pageant which takes $11K this week for a 2 week total of $70K.
25th May 2017
Directed by Guy Ritchie King Arthur Legend of the Sword makes its UK debut at the top of the box office, but its an unconvincing start to its box office run.
Taking £2.5 million from the weekend the film which had a massive budget and is set to start a new series of films was expected to smash its way into the box office from studio Warner Bros.
For the director this is below the debut of his top grossing films the Sherlock Holmes movies starring Robert Downey Jnr. which both debuted in the £3 million mark.
Falling into second place is Alien: Covenant which only just missed out on spending a second week at the top with a weekend gross of £2.1 million.
This brings the films total gross to £10 million, Prometheus at this point in its run was doing very similar business so expect this to end its run with a similar £20 million+.
Also new this week is Snatched starring Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn at number 4 with a debut of £842,000 and Colossal starring Anne Hathaway at number 9 with £150,000.
