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.
5th June 2020
A very slow week on the home entertainment charts this week with films flip-flopping wound like they done know what to do, Bad Boys For Life goes back to the top and A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood is the top new film.
Here is a breakdown of the top 5 movies.
Will Smith and Martin Lawrence star in this return of their buddy cops set in Miami, the film has been on the chart for 3 weeks now and goes back to the top.
Sam Mendes much praised single shot war movie falls from the top to number 2 on its 4th week of release.
Director Greta Gerwig brings up her adaptation of the much loved novel that goes back up the chart to number 3 on its 3rd week of release.
Pixars first new IP in a number of years had its box office run cut short but has lived well in the home entertainment market where it falls to number 3 on its 4th week of release.
The Star Wars movie that truly split the fan base and ended the 9 film saga falls to number 5 this week, its 7th week of release.
Tom Hanks gives a steller supporting performance as Mr. Rodgers in this true life tale of the famed American children's entertainer.
As the subject matter was not known in the UK the film had to rely on its star power to pull in audiences, hence the film didn't do that well in the UK makings its debut in late January at number 8 on the box office.
The film only hung around for a couple of weeks taking just £1.8 Million.
29th October 2019
At the start of the weekend the big money would have been on Terminator: Dark Fate to top the UK box office this weekend but the new franchise film actually came nowhere near Joker which easily keeps the top spot for a fourth straight week.
The Todd Philips directed movie has done far better at the box office than studio Warner Bros. could ever have expected and this week spends its fourth weekend at the top as its weekend grosses show no sign of slowing too much as it takes £3.5 Million over the weekend.
The films total UK gross is now at £46.7 Million after 4 weeks of release, this puts the film at number 4 on the 2019 top grossing films list, ahead of Disney bog hitter Captain Marvel.
The movie has also broken into the top 50 all time UK movies as it slides past 2017's The Greatest Showman to become the 48th top grossing film in the UK.
The movie is also the top total grossing film on the box office this weekend.
All hopes are on this movie to save the Terminator franchise since the disastrous box office performance of Terminator Genisys.
The new movie which brings Linda Hamilton's Sarah Connor back into the mix makes its debut at number 2, the same as Genisys, the bad news is that the film, 4 years later, can only bring in £2.8 Million, less than the £3.7 Million of the previous movie.
This is worrying for the franchise as this was, once again, supposed to re-boot the series and bring it back to the glory days of The Terminator and T2, but the signs suggest it could be dead before its arrived.
Disney's high budget sequel falls to 3 this weekend with a gross of £2.1 Million, this takes the films total to £7.5 Million after 2 weeks of release.
On the Monday - Sunday weekly chart the film remains at number 2 having grossed £4.2 Million over the week.
A new animated adaptation of the spooky, Kooky family hits the box office at number 4 this weekend with a debut gross of £2.1 Million.
Falling to number 5 is the latest Aardman animated movie which takes £1 Million for the weekend and £3.3 Million in total after 2 weeks.
The movie about the posh British house is at number 15 this weekend, its has the longest run at 7 weeks and has taken £27.3 Million.
The Super Heroes of Avengers Infinity War and the all singing all dancing spectacular of Mamma Mia! Here we go again fought it out for the top film of 2018 at the UK box office.
The latest Avengers movie from the Disney Marvel Studios topped the yearly box offie chart on its release in April and never let go.
The film took an amazing £70 million in the UK over a 10 week stretch on the box office and is the 10th top film in the UK ever.
The Sequel to 2008's top film could only manage 2nd place 10 years later although it gave the Avengers movie a run for its money.
The Super Trooper movie took £65.6 million over its 11 week run on the box office and its the 11th top film ever in the UK.
Still in sequel territory as Pixar released a follow up to their 2004 original which took £55.9 million at the UK box office over its 14 week run.
Released at the beginning of the year before Avengers Infinity War this Marvel movie set the tone and if the 4th top film of 2018.
The film took £50 million at the UK box office over its 12 week run.
Maybe a bit of a suprise this one, the Bryan Singer directed Queen/Freddy Mercury bio-pic is the fifth top grossing film of the year.
With a UK gross of £46 million over its 9 week (and counting) box office run it is also the directors top grossing UK film.
The story of 2018 in the UK is that it bucked the trend a little from the rest of the world and we didn't just go mad for super hero movies, we like our musicals, The Greatest Showman despite being a 2017 took £41 million in 2018 and Bohemian Rhapsody has plenty of music in it.
Here is the full UK top 10 grossing films in 2018.
22nd March 2018
After a very good 4 weeks at the top of the Uk box office Black Panther givers up this week and falls down to number 2 leaving Peter Rabbit and Tomb Raider to fight it out.
The Will Gluck directed Peter Rabbit starring the voice of James Cordon easily made it to the top in the end with a weekend gross of £7 million.
Also making its debut is Alicia Vikander in the reboot of Tomb Raider which make a decent weekend gross of £3 million.
In comparison the Angelina Jolie first outing from 2001 took £3.8 million on its debut, with inflation the reboot is a bit of a let down.
Black Panther may have fallen to number 3 this week but a £1.8 million 5th weekend takes the film total UK gross to £42 million, its global gross is now nearly $1.2 billion.
The Greatest Showman continues to do really well and a 12 weekend gross of just over £1 million brings the films total gross to nearly £39 million.
Red Sparrow finished off the top 5 this week.
