There is no stopping the Sony/Marvel Spide-Man multiverse move as it spends its 10th weekend on the box office and climbs a place to number 3 this week.

The movie got delayed by over a year, and after the failure of last years Tenet its wasn;t much of a suprise that Warner Bros. did, but this week the Denis Villeneuve vision of Frank Herbert classic sci-fi, impossible to film, book finally hits the box office.
The movie comes in with a weekend gross of just over $40 Million, potentially lower than expected as the movie is also available on HBO Max, altohugh as Halloween Kills has shown movies can do well as the box office even when on streaming the same day.
The film which stars Timothee Chalamet and Rebecca Ferguson might have a short stay at the top but the response has been god enough that a sequel is almost guaranteed.
Hitting the top spot last weekend the movie was always destined for a single weekend at the top and this week takes $14.5 Million on its second weekend of release, a large 71% drop over last weekend, maybe dur to its availability on streaming?
The movie has now taken $73.1 Million at the American box office, and although the movie might get a boost next weekend as its Halloween we should see the movie sink down the box office quite rapidly now.
Bond movie number 25 has not quite hit the same stride in America as it has across the rest of the world and this week takes $11.8 Million, a 50% drop over last weekend.
The movie has been on the box office for 3 weeks now and has a US total gros of $120 Million making it the 7th top movie of 2021.
The superhero villain smash hit sequel falls to number 4 this weekend with $9.1 Million, a modest 45% drop over last weekend.
This gives the movie a total gross of $181.8 Million, very good for a sequel and its running almost parellel with its predecessor, the movie is now the 3rd top movie of 2021.
The new animated movie from directors Sarah Smith, who brought us Arthur Christmas and Jean-Philippe Vine makes its debut at number 5 this week with $7.3 Million.
1st September 2021
A new trailer has been released by Sony for the next James Bond 007 movie No Time To Die starring Daniel Craig.
The new trailer comes a couple of months before the much delayed movie and includes some new footage from the much anticipated movie.
What is more interesting about this trailer, intended for the American audience, is that it looks as all the Daniel Craig Bond movie as one story and calls this the last installment.
In fact the first part of the trailer is like a condensed best of for Daniel Craig in the role.
The trailer gives away little of the story but there are some nice action shots in the trailer, the movie is out in the US on 8th October but in Europe and the UK you can see it on September 30th.
2nd February 2021
The big screen adaptation of Wicked has been on the cards for a while now, but hit a block when director Stephen Daldry stepped down, now Crazy Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu has stepped in.
The American director has just completed the movie In The Heights, a musical which will hit cinemas, hopefully, later in 2021 after release delays.
The sequel to Crazy Rich Asians, China Rich Girlfriend might also be on his schedule which will be film back to back with the third film Rich People Problems although rumours suggest Chu won't direct.
The film version of the hit musical about the witches of Oz has been in the works for a while, it should have hit cinemas in December of 2019, the same time as another musical adaptation hit, Cats!
No release date or cast has been given yet, and with COVID still a global issue it could be a couple of years before we see it, IMDB are showing a 22nd December 2021 which seems a but tight, maybe 2022 seems more likely?
15th September 2020
As you would expect the saviour of cinema is still the top movie of the week, and unlike last weekend Warner Bros. have released more accurate figures for the weekend gross this time.
Last weekend Warner Bros. only released the total gross for the movie, which included 7 days extra of Canadian release and preview figures for the American release, although to be honest this is nothing new!
Further down the box office list the top 3 movies stay the same while The Broken Hearts Gallery is the top new movie of the weekend and all but 1 of the top 5 grosses over a million for the period.
Here is a rundown of the top 5 movies in North America 11th - 13th September 2020.
Christopher Nolan's much praised, and much disliked, movie spends a second weekend at number 1 with a gross of $6.7 Million, which when compared with last weekends real figure of $9.5 Million as released by Warner Bros. this isn't too bad a drop.
This of course is under unusual circumstances as many cinemas in America are still closed and many more people still dont want to go to the cinema due to health concerns, couple this with the limited capacity and you get a clear picture of how the grosses are working in the current climate.
This has though pushed the movies total North American gross to $29.5 Million over its 2 weekends of release.
Hanging on in second place is Disney's mutant movie which this week takes $2.09 Million in the US.
The movie has a total gross of $15.3 Million after 3 weeks of release.
The Russel Crowe starring movie remains at number 3 taking $1.5 Million over the weekend which gives it a 5 week total gross of $13.8 Million.
Highest new movie of the weekend lans at number 4 and is Natalie Krinsky directorial debut.
The movie takes $1.1 Million on its debut, which is perhaps a little lower than expected especially in the current climate and the romantic escapism the movie offers.
The third Bill And Ted movie falls to number 5 this weekend with $292.6K bringing its 3 week box office total to $2.8 Million.
This has been a real shame for the movie which got a release on streaming the same time as a theatrical release and will have basically destroyed its potential box office gross.
