Highest chart position: 7
Weeks on box office: 2
With the stay at home order issued 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.

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.

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.
