News from around the web

With the stay at home order issues 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.

The Invisible Man

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.

Cinema chains across the globe are taking drastic safety measures to keep the spread of coronavirus by closing up, in many countries until early April.

As seen by this weeks box office figures this weekends box office taking were down by up to 70% in some countries and the general public remain at home in self quarantine.

Now, by the request of many global governments, cinemas are closing their doors all together in order to keep the public safe and limit the spread of the virus.

If COVID-19 is controlled then we may see a reopening in the early days of April, but this will have a large impact on local and global box office.

Europe and America have a thriving cinema going population, and China which is starting to show signs of controlling the spread has one of the largest in the world.

More importantly many small independent cinemas might struggle to survive in the suggested 3 weeks of shutdown, and even with the large chains it might have a detrimental effect.

Time will tell but this could have lasting effect on movies at cinema while the home streaming benefit.

Director John Krasinski has announced that the release date for A Quiet Place Part II has been put back from its original March 19th date.

The sequel to the original 2018 hit movie has joined No Time To Die and Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaways in changing the release because of the global pandemic.

Authorities have advised that because of the coronavirus it is best to avoid large crowds in an attempt to contain the virus.

As seen in last weeks box office across the world the public is choosing not to go the movie theatres, and for potential blockbusters this could have a large effect on their box office gross.

No new release date has been announced, but world governments seem to be suggesting things will be readdressed in early April.

With the release of a new Disney Pixar movie we get a new number film film as Onward makes its debut at the top knocking off The Invisible Man while British movie Military Wives makes its debut at number 3.


Disney and Pixar release their latest movie and first film in a while that is not a sequel which makes its debut at the top of the box office with £3.4 Million.

The outbreak of the Coronavirus has had an impact on the box office and this films debut gross is lower than expected.

Depending on how things pan out this could have a major effect on the current releases, but Disney have the power to keep this in cinemas as we could see a boost over the upcoming Easter holidays.

The Invisible Man

Falling to number 2 after a single week at the top Universals alternative monster movie takes £1.5 Million over the weekend to give it a £5 Million total gross after 2 weeks of release.

Military Wives

Military Wives

Following the fortunes of a group of British women who husbands are on active duty who come together to form a quire the movie makes its debut at number 3 with just under a million.

Movies like this have always done well in the UK and although this doesn't have the same pull as the likes of Calendar Girls the film could see a long run at the box office.

Sonic The Hedgehog

The former number 1 Jim Carrey starring video game adaptation falls to number 4 this week with £951,103 which give it a £18 Million total after 4 weeks of release.


Finally on the top 5 is the Oscar winning movie which this week becomes the highest grossing foreign language film in the UK as its gross goes to £11 Million after 5 weeks.

The movies weekend gross is £529,550, the whole of the top 5 having clearly been hit by the public not going to their local multiplexes.


The highest total grossing movie and the longest run on this weeks box office with £43 Million after 9 weeks of release.

Spirited Away is arguably one of director Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli best films but in 2001 when the film was originally released it was banned in China, that ban was lifted this week and the film finally got a long overdue release.

Toy Story 4

There was another animated film released this week in China, and the rest of the world, this week, Toy Story 4, a brand new animation from Pixar and the fourth film in the very successful Toy Story Series.

In most of the world Toy Story 4 has topped the box office, including most of Europe and the United States, but in China the incredible happened and the 18 year old animation beat the brand new films.

This is quite incredible, and good news for cinema and the Chinese box office, I suspect many people in China have seen the film as it has been available on home video for years, but it would seem the public want to see this film on the big screen.

Its not all bad news for the Pixar movie as it has landed on the box office at number 2, but with Spirited Away taking $27.8 Million dollars (converted) compared with $13.2 Million (converted) the Toy Story film took half that of the Japanese animation.

Here is the Chinese top 5 Box Office Weekend of 21st June 2019

  1. Spirited Away $27,842,673
  2. Toy Story 4 $13,209,667
  3. Men in Black International $5,872,709
