As you would expect the saviour of cinema is still the top movie of the week, and unlike last weekend Warner Bros. have released more accurate figures for the weekend gross this time.
Last weekend Warner Bros. only released the total gross for the movie, which included 7 days extra of Canadian release and preview figures for the American release, although to be honest this is nothing new!
Further down the box office list the top 3 movies stay the same while The Broken Hearts Gallery is the top new movie of the weekend and all but 1 of the top 5 grosses over a million for the period.
Here is a rundown of the top 5 movies in North America 11th - 13th September 2020.
Christopher Nolan's much praised, and much disliked, movie spends a second weekend at number 1 with a gross of $6.7 Million, which when compared with last weekends real figure of $9.5 Million as released by Warner Bros. this isn't too bad a drop.
This of course is under unusual circumstances as many cinemas in America are still closed and many more people still dont want to go to the cinema due to health concerns, couple this with the limited capacity and you get a clear picture of how the grosses are working in the current climate.
This has though pushed the movies total North American gross to $29.5 Million over its 2 weekends of release.
Hanging on in second place is Disney's mutant movie which this week takes $2.09 Million in the US.
The movie has a total gross of $15.3 Million after 3 weeks of release.
The Russel Crowe starring movie remains at number 3 taking $1.5 Million over the weekend which gives it a 5 week total gross of $13.8 Million.
Highest new movie of the weekend lans at number 4 and is Natalie Krinsky directorial debut.
The movie takes $1.1 Million on its debut, which is perhaps a little lower than expected especially in the current climate and the romantic escapism the movie offers.
The third Bill And Ted movie falls to number 5 this weekend with $292.6K bringing its 3 week box office total to $2.8 Million.
This has been a real shame for the movie which got a release on streaming the same time as a theatrical release and will have basically destroyed its potential box office gross.

The saviour of cinema finally gets a US release and in the process of course tops the box office and with a half decent gross, although Warner Bros. are not giving daily totals for the movie and this total is from the movies initial release and takes in 11 days of release data!
With Tenet easily topping the box office with an 11 day opening weekend! The New Mutants falls to number 2 but still with a half decent second weekend gross while many holdovers fill up the other places on the top 5.
Remember that cinemas in the US are still largely closed, and where there are places open they are strictly under limited capacity allowing for social distancing and many people are still not comfortable sitting in a dark room for 2+ hours with total strangers.
Here is a breakdown of this weeks top 5 movies in the US 4th - 6th September 2020.
Christopher Nolans latest directorial movie has had a troubled time making its way to movie theatres but after a couple of delays it has been released into a troubled marketplace where many cinemas in America are still closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This hasn't stopped everyone from enjoying the movie billed as the saviour of cinema as the movie makes its debut in the US to a reported weekend gross of $20.2 Million.
The movie is in this for the long stay and will no doubt encourage people to movie theatres in the coming weeks and months, although a move to VOD could be on the cards sooner rather than later.
The latest mutant movie from the X-Men universe falls to number 2 this weekend with a gross of $3.03 Million, better than would have been expected from the critically panned film.
This pushes the movies total gross in the US to $11.7 Million after 2 weeks of release.
Russell Crowes latest movie may not have made the money expected but it has had a good chart run and this week is at number 3 with $1.8 Million.
This takes the films total gross to $11.4 Million after 4 weeks of release.
The movie hit VOD at the same time at its theatrical release and after a top 3 entry last weekend falls to 4 this week with $773.1K pushing its total theatrical gross to $2.3 Million after 2 weeks.
The animated movie is still only on release in Canada and this week climbs to number 5 with $345K taking its 4 week gross to $3.3 Million.
28th July 2020
Still no sign of the US closedown ending anytime soon so the American box office is once more relying on mainly drive-in movie theatres for its figures.

Here is a rundown of the top 5 box office films in America 24th - 26th July 2020.
Directed by Dave Franco this horror suspense movie takes the top spot with ease, last weeks Beauty And The Beast live action doesn't even feature on this week chart.

In the UK cinemas have started to re-open, they are not back to full capacity but they are letting people in a taking money, so what is happeneing on the first weekend back?
Things are actually re-starting right where they left off and Onward is the top film in the county, again, but there are no new releases and a bunch of 'classic' film on the chart.
Here is a rundown of the top 5 UK movies last weekend.
Pixars latest animated fantasy was the top film over the weekend 13th - 15th March, the last weekend before cinemas had to close because of COVID-19, and the first weekend back, some 3 months+ later its still at the top!
To show how slow things are and that cinemas are not filling to capacity the movie has taken £21,626 over the weekend.
This puts the films total gross to £5.2 Million 4 weeks (sort of) after release.
The most controversial film over the COVID-19 close down, the Universal movie was to get a full theatrical release at the end of March, but because of the close down was released onto streaming.
Universal saw this as a good move and announced that they would be releasing many of their films to streaming at the same time as its theatrical release in the future which angered many cinema chains including AMC which owns the UK chain ODEON who vowed not to carry any future Universal releases, although with AMC now struggling to stay open who knows what will happen?
The movie is showing in cinemas and this week is sort of the highest new film with a weekend gross of £17K putting the total gross in cinemas to £25.7K.
The buddy cop movie starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence is at 3 this week with £16K and a total of £16 Million after 10 weeks on the chart.
The first 'classic' movie on the box office is at 4 this week with the Hugh Jackman 2017 smash hit which made the top of the chart in early 2018.
The movie takes £15K over the weekend and has taken £49 Million after 22 weeks on the chart.
The years top grossing film is at number 5 this week with £12.7K putting the films total gross to £43.7 Million after 2 weeks on the chart.

After Mulan and Black Widow got delayed Disney didn't announce new release dates, but today we get the new dates as July 24th 2020 and November 6th 2020.
Mulan starring Jet Li and Donnie Yen got pulled with literally a couple of weeks to go before it hit cinemas, but then the COVID-19 pandemic hit and cinemas closed and the release was pulled.
Black Widow starring Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh was set to kick of the summer movie schedule with a release of May 1st.
With the new release dates we can start looking forward to the live action remake and the start of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 4.
Interestingly July 24th is the current release date of Disney's own Jungle Cruise movie starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt, so expect a move of that to maybe Christmas?
**UPDATE** The release date of Jungle Cruise has moved and will now get a release on 30th July 2021.
This is all providing the current stay at home is over and the cinemas have reopened.
