US box office top 5 breakdown weekend 17th - 19th September 2021
A third weekend at the top of the US box office for the newest Marvel character which takes $21.7 Million this weekend, a very good 39% drop over last weekend.
This gives the movie a $176.8 Million total US box office gross after 3 weeks of release and is the second highest grossing movie of 2021 in North America.
Shawn Levy's runaway hit stays at number 2 this weekend with a gross of $5.2 Million, an incredible 11% drop, made even more impressive by the fact this is the movie 6th weekend of release, is this a sign people are going back to the movies?
This gives the film a total US gross of $108.5 Million after 6 weeks of release and is the 6th top grossing movie of 2021 in North America.
Legendary director Clint Eastwood brings his latest movie to the big screen, and goes back to westerns in the process, his latest makes its debut on the chart at number 3 with $4.5 Million.
Eastwood has a die hard following but this latest picture has not had the praise and critical response of his past movies so once the 'fans' see the movie this could drop from the box office quickly.
The horror movie sequel/remake remains at number 4 this weekend with $3.5 Million, a decent 28% drop on its fourth weekend of release, this gives the movie a total of $53.1 Million.
James Wan's latest horror movie falls to number 5 on its second weekend of release with $2.6 Million over the weekend, a big 52% drop, giving the film a total US gross of $9.8 Million.
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.
