Cinemas across the globe are still largely closed due to COVID-19 but some cinemas in America and globally are starting to open.
Drive-in theatres where there are 305 across America with 549 screen have opened and also Norway and South Korea are still report box office charts.
The US chart only has five film so here are the figures from those movies where distributers have reported figures and also a global chart compiled from the countries that have released data.
US Box Office
Directed by Brett Pierce and Drew T. Pierce this horror movie got well received by critics when released on VOD in other countries and is doing well in drive-in move theatres across America as it take $89,608 over the weekend.
The movie got its debut last weekend and has made $165,294 in total to date at the box office.
Starring Beanie Feldstein and Emma Thompson this comedy made its debut this weekend so in essence is the highest new film with $13,201.
The film went direct to VOD a few weeks ago and its impossible to tell how much it will make on its "box office" run.
Starring Tuppence Middleton this drama set around Niagara Falls takes $1,764 over the weekend for a $23,679 total,
Released back in late April this drama is directed by Justin Kurzel and takes $1,456 over the weekend for a $32,496 total after 2 weeks of release.
Released on 6th March this drama stars Elizabeth Debicki and Donald Sutherland and takes $45 over the weekend for a $39,633 total after 9 weeks.
Global Box Office
Directed by Woody Allen this New York based movie was release in South Korea this week where it is the top film and took $339,633 from 563 cinemas.
The film is set to be released on streaming on 5th June in the UK but has taken $344,283 to date.
Making its debut again in South Korea the Daniel Radcliffe starring movie took $136,250, globally the movie has taken $176,208 to date.
One of the most controversial movie in recent times the Trolls followup in from Universal, the controversy is not due to the content but the fact that its success on VOD has lead Universal to think about which film it releases in cinemas and which film it releases on both at the same time, a move AMC and Cinemark have not been happy with.
The film takes $126,662 (from South Korea) on its debut and has actually taken $2.6 Million globally since release on 6th April 2020.
There are no major blockbusters being released during this time so cinema chains are looking to fill their screens with older movies and so this 26 year old movie is the fourth top film this week.
The movie makes $111,157 from its single country release but the film has taken $5.6 Million globally since its initial release.
This Asian movie directed by Mengying Dai and Tong Zhou is at number 5 and takes $73,635 over the weekend, it has taken $2.6 Million since release on 21st June 2019 in China where it has grossed $2.1 Million.
The top film in Norway was Onwards which took $17,208 which places it at number 11 on the global box office this week, it has taken $104,080,103 globally.
20th April 2020
Production was about quarter of the way through on The Batman before it was halted because of the global pandemic, and unsurprisingly the release date has now shifted to 1st October 2021.
The original release was set as 25th June 2021 but after the halt in production that was never going to happen.
The film is directed by Matt Reeves and stars Robert Pattinson as batman along with Colin Farrell and The Penguin and Andy Serkis and his trusty butler and friend Alfred Pennyworth.
Other film on the move from the DC universe are The Flash movie which is now set for 3rd June 2021 and the Shazam! sequel which gets moved to November 4th 2022.
Also getting a change is The Sopranos prequel movie The Many Saints Of Newark which will now be seen in cinemas on March 12th 2021.
With many studios removing their theatrical movies from their original release dates to new ones because of the cinema closures, Disney have not rescheduled any of their films and today announce that Artemis Fowl will go direct to Disney+.
The film was originally set for release on 9th August 2019 before being moved to 29th May 2020, but unlike many of the studios schedule, like Mulan, Disney have decided to give the Kenneth Branagh directed adaptation of the Eoin Colfer book to their streaming service, there is no date yet when it will appear there.
This is a very interesting move from one of the most powerful studios in the world, and lets hope not, but could show the way forward for studios in this difficult time.
Maybe we will see a time when the big, potential $1 Billion movies, will get moved to other release windows, but the smaller films will go straight to streaming so there is not a massive back catalogue of films to get out in cinemas.
Time will tell, and with no sign of cinemas reopening there is no way to tell if some bigger movies will get the home entertainment treatment as well.

Looking forward the road might be tough and the film could end up with a smaller gross despite the movies popularity.
As expected the Universal modern monster movie fell to number 2 this week with $15.1 Million over the weekend.
This brings the films total US gross to $52.6 Million after 2 weeks of release.
Landing as number 3 this weekend is the new film starring Ben Affleck and directed by Gavin O'Connor which grosses $8.5 Million over its debut.
Falling to number 4 after 4 weeks of release is the video game adaptation which takes $8 Million taking its total to a very good $140.8 Million.
