Tenet is number 1 on the UK box office this week.
Highest chart position: 1
Weeks on box office: 3
Another new poster has appeared online for the new Bond movie No Time To Die featuring 007 actor Daniel Craig with a large gun and ready for action.
It's yet another lacklustre poster, but it does fit in with the marketing campaign that has been seen to date for the movie.
These posters really don't scream quality, and this new one, intentional or not, looks out of focus and like I knocked it up in Photoshop late last night.
The new movie is set for release on November 12th 2020, but with the current release of Tenet not doing the numbers expected many films are starting to have their release dates shifted again, so there is a possibility it may happen to this Bond movie.
Arguably it could be the real movie to restart the box office, but as its Craig last outing it a risk to take.
The 25th film in the long running James Bond, 007 series. No Time To Die has a retired James Bond living with Madeleine Swann who holds a dark secret. Bond's best friend from the CIA Felix Leiter delivers some news that puts Bond back into action against a new villain, perhaps to a deadly end.

Tenet remains at the top of the UK box office for a third weekend while After We Collided get an increase in cinema count and get an impressive leap to number 2.
Highest new 'movie' of the weekend is the Event Cinema release of the K-Pop band BTS in concert while the top new film is The Broken Hearts Gallery which misses out on a place on the top 5.
In a downward spiral for the second weekend running the top 15 movies grossed less than the previous weekend, this could be down to no new film being released or people not willing to venture to the cinema in the current climate, the rela test will be when the next big movie comes out, although release dates are starting to shift again.
Here is a breakdown of the top 5 movies in the UK 11th - 13th September 2020.
No surprise that the Christopher Nolan movie is the top film in the UK for the third weekend in a row, and with a weekend gross of £1.2 Million the movie is slowing fast.
The movie has now taken £12.4 Million in the UK, the good news is its now the 8th top movie of 2020, to date.
After a good debut last weekend the movie got a significant increase in screen count this week giving the Roger Kumble directed movie a good boost and the movie climbs to number 2 with £422.6K.
This puts the movies total UK gross at £763.6K after 2 weeks of release.
The many fans for K-Pop band rushed out this weekend to see the bands latest live movie event to the tune of £374K making the top new entry of the week.
Disney's troubles mutant movie from the X-Men universe fall to number 4 this weekend with £200.6K in takings.
This puts the movies total gross at £1.1 Million after 2 weeks of release, ironically I'm not sure if the film would have done any better in a fully functioning market!
It not all bad news for Disney as their Pixar movie Onward spends a 14th weekend the top 5, at 5, with £97.2K taking its total gross to £7.06 Million.
15th September 2020
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.
With the recent release of Tenet not lighting up cinemas around the world, especially in America, it comes as no surprise that Warner Bros. have moved Wonder Woman 1984 to later in the year, December 25th in the US and December 26th in the UK.
Director Patty Jenkins announced when the film first got moved earlier in the year that the movie had to be seen on the big screen, the movie was moved once more and now gets moved again.
The release of Christopher Nolans Tenet could be seen as a test, and it would seem that test failed with many cinemas still not open across the world and other places like Europe starting to see a spike in COVID-19 cases with potential closures set to resume again.
This move also puts into doubt the release of the 25th Bond movie No Time To Die due November 12th along with Black Widow on October 23rd, which many fans fear could go direct to Disney+ for a premium like Mulan.
There are many other potential blockbuster toward the end of 2020 and into 2021 which could also be in danger of a release move or a direct to digital release.
With many predicting that the pandemic might not be over until late in 2021 this is bad news for the cinema industry and could see many independent business closing and a potential of larger chains also struggling.
10th September 2020
With cinemas in the UK still not operating anywhere near capacity and couple that with many people still not willing to spend a couple of hours in close proximity to other people tenet spends a second weekend at the top in a weaker box office than last week.
The top film of the weekend is 20th Century Fox's (and hence Disney's) much delayed mutant movie The New Mutants which makes its debut this week and has perhaps been a bit disappointing for many.
With the weakened weekend box office and the potential new spike in the COVID-19 cases the box office is not looking good, and if the likes of Wonder Woman 1984 and No Time To Die get delayed we may not see a full recovery until well into next year.
Here is a breakdown of this week top 5 movies in the UK 4th - 6th September 2020.
Christopher Nolans head scratching new movie which has split opinion among movie goers remains at the top in the UK box office for a second weekend with £2.1 Million.
This puts the movies total UK gross at £10 Million, it is the top movie of the summer period and could well be the top title for weeks to come.
Peerhaps coming in lower than expected the new Disney movie from the X-Men univers makes its debut at number 2 with £686.4K.
It's hard to know where this movie will go from here, it could be a long running movie as Unhinged has been, but if we get the new big blockbusters that are expected in the next couple of months it could sink without trace and end up on Disney+ sooner rather than later.
Directed by Roger Kumble this movie at first was not a top 5 movie but then when figures came in from the distributer it was a top 3 movie!
The film takes £256K on its debut with little in the way of hype or word of mouth.
Pixars computer generated animation falls to it lowest position since it launched on March with a weekend gross of £135.6K.
This puts the movies total gross as £6.9 Million after 13 weeks on the box office.
The Russell Crowe starring thriller drops to number 5 this week with £96.9K for a £1 Million total after 6 weeks of play.
