This weekend looked like it would be the week that Tenet was removed from the top of the UK box offie but despite the many new releases it hung on for an 8th weekend.

The event movie concert feature Micheal Ball & Alfie Boe: Back Together is the top new movie of the week coming in impressively at number 2 while further down the box office the only other new movie is the documentary feature I Am Greta at number 8.

Hocus Pocus

Worthy of mention this weekend is Hocus Pocus which was re-released last weekend and hit number 14 and this week increases by 51% and bounces to number 7.

Its also worthy of a mention that for the first time since 21st August 2020 the top 15 movies in the UK did not gross over a million combined, the total is £986K, and thats with a lot of new films hitting the market.

Here is the UK box office Quickview.

  • Number 1 - Tenet (8 weeks)
  • Highest debut - Michael Ball & Alfie Boe: Back Together (@2)
  • Longest run - Onward (19 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - Tenet (£16,877,908)

Here is this weeks UK top 5 breakdown weekend 16th - 18th October 2020.

Tenet

Eight weeks on and the Christopher Nolan directed movie is still in the number 1 position, this week with its lowest weekend gross to date at £187.2K, a 37% drop from last weekend.

The movie has now taken £16.8 Million at the UK box office which is the directors 6th highest grossing movie, and its more that 20005's Batman Begins (not adjusted for inflation).

Michael Ball & Alfie Boe: Back Together

Michael Ball & Alfie Boe: Back Together

Event cinema has been a part of the box office for years now and in the current climate with the box office suffering due to a lack of big blockbuster movies we get a Micheal Ball and Alfie Boe concert as the top new movie of the weekend.

Entering at number 2 the event took £175K on its 2 days of release, Saturday and Sunday.

Saint Maud

Last weeks top new movie falls to number 3 this weekend with £132.2K which boosts the movies total gross to £520.3K after 10 days of release which is 45% down from its debut gross.

After We Collided

The surprise hit of late summer remains at number 4 this week with £107.4K over the weekend, 45% down from last weekend.

This gives the movie a total gross in the UK of £3.7 Million after 7 weeks of release.

Cats & Dogs: Paws Unite!

Staying at number 5 is the Cats & Dogs sequel which takes &45.4K on its 3rd weekend of release, 40% down, giving it a £326K total.

Liam Neeson takes over from Robert De Niro this weekend in Honest Thief which makes a very strong (in the current climate) debut at the top and pushing The War With Grandpa down to number 2.

With last weeks top film falling to number 2 there are a couple of catalogue movies in the lower end of the top 5, expected due to the lack of blockbuster movies getting released.

2 hearts

Further down the chart there are a few new movies, 2 Hearts is new at number 6, Love And Monsters makes its debut at number 9 and The Kid Detective one below at number 10.

Here is this weeks US box office Quickview.

  • Number 1 - Honest Thief (1st Week)
  • Highest debut - Honest Thief (@1)
  • Longest run - Unhinged (10 weeks)
  • Highest total gross (excluding re-releases) - Tenet ($50,600,000)

Here is the breakdown of this weeks US top 5 movies 16th - 18th October 2020.

Honest Thief

Liam Neeson returns to the revenge action genre with this movie directed by Mark Williams which makes its North American debut at the top with $4.2 Million (including previews), $3.7 Million Friday - Sunday.

This is not a bad debut in the current COVID-19 climate and is among the top debuts since cinemas started to reopened.

The War With Grandpa

Falling to number 2 after a single week at the top is the Tim Hill directed comedy starring Robert De Niro which this weekend taked $2.5 Million, falling 31% from last weekend.

This gives the movie a total US gross of $7.2 Millon after 10 days of release.

Tenet

Seven weeks on and Christopher Nolan's movie falls to number 3 with $1.6 Million which is a 24% drop from last weekend.

The movie has now taken $50 Million in the US the highest total grossing on the box office this week.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

The Nightmare Before Christmas

First released in 1994 the Henry Selick directed movie, presented by Tim Burton of course, gets a re-release and takes a very impressive $1.3 million on its first weekend as it enters at number 4.

The movie has taken $76.4 Million since it was first released 26 years ago.

Hocus Pocus

Another Halloween favourite on its 3rd weekend of a re-release takes $756K, a 35% drop from last weekend.

The movie has now taken $3.8 Million on its re-run and $43.3 Million since first released in 1993.

The two big Chinese hits My People, My Homeland and Legend Of Deification are still the biggest films across the globe this weekend but The Wars With Grandpa and Greenland make good ground as they open in more countries.

Here is the global box office top 15 Quickview.

  • Number 1 - My People, My Homeland (2 weeks)
  • Highest debut - NONE
  • Longest run - Trolls World Tour (24 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - Tenet ($323,500,000)

This weeks global top 5 breakdown 9th - 11th October 2020.

My People, My Homeland

This Chinese smash sequel from directors Hao Ning and Sicheng Chen stays at the top for a second weekend with $41.1 Million, 73% down from last weekend.

This gives the movie a total gross globally of $312.1 Million.

Legend Of Deification

Remaining at number 2 for a second weekend is the animated tale from directors Teng Cheng and Li Wei which takes $11.3 Million, a 93% drop from last weekend.

The movie has now taken $163.2 Million globally, but its only been released in China so far!

Tenet

Loosing momentum but still at number 3, Christopher Nolans movie takes $9.8 Million over the weekend, a 31% drop, for a total of $323.5 Million.

The War With Grandpa

The War With Grandpa

The Robert De Niro starring movie gets a US release this week and goes back up to number 4 with $9.8 Million, 86% up from last weekend, giving it a total global gross of $5.4 Million.

Greenland

The latest Gerard Butler movie is getting a direct to VOD release in many parts of the world but where it is out its doing well and goes up to number 5 this weekend with $2.8 Million, up 83%.

The movie has taken $29 Million globally after 10 weeks of release.

Tenet spends a 7th weekend at the top of the UK box office, the longest for 20 years when Toy Story 2 and Gladiator both spent 7 weeks at the top in 2000.

This is unprecedented times but still it is note worthy that a movie can spend that much time at the top although it is with little competition, although After We Collided came close as did Cats & Dogs: Paws Unite! and this weeks top movie Saint Maud.

There are a number of new movies released this Friday and the bets are on that it could be the last weekend for Tenet, or just maybe the top new release this week might make the jump.

What is a worrying trend is the total top 15 this weekend is nearly a million pound down from last, meaning people are either still unsure of returning to cinemas, or they is nothing to draw them back!

Here is the this week UK box office Quickview (not including catalogue re-releases).

  • Number 1 - Tenet (7 Weeks)
  • Highest debut - Saint Maud (@2)
  • Longest run - Onward (18 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - Tenet (£16,563,616)

Here is a rundown of the top 5 movies 9th - 11th October 2020.

Tenet

Seven weeks in and Christopher Nolans 'saviour' is still at the top of the UK box office and this week takes £296K.

This gives the movie a total UK gross of £16.5 Million after 7 weeks of release and it is now the 5 highest grossing movie of 2020 or third highest movie released in 2020.

This weekends total of 53% down from last weekend which is one of the movies biggest drops week on week.

Saint Maud

Saint Maud

Highest new movie of the weekend lands at number 2 in the shape of director Rose Glass's horror movie which despite landing at 2 takes £263.4K in a ever decreasing market.

The movie has been well reviews with even a hint of Oscar nods so we could see this have a long chart life and it still has a chance to hit the top.

Akira

The 1988 movie that kicked off the manga obsession in the West gets a re-release and re-enters the box office at number 3 with £201.1K.

After We Collided

Falling to number 4 this week is the Roger Kumble directed movie that has given Tenet a run for its money in recent weeks and takes £194.2K this weekend, down 50% from last weekend.

The movie has taken a very respectable £3.5 Million in the UK since release 6 weeks ago.

Cats & Dogs: Paws Unite!

Last weeks top new movie falls to 5 this weekend with £184.3K, down 60% from last weekend giving the movie a second week total of £715.2K.
