Jungle Cruise

Disney release their latest movie based on a ride which hits the top of the North American box office with $34.2 Million on its debut.

As the world is still trying to cope with the global pandemic this is never going to hit the same heights at the other movies based on a ride

The Green Knight

Starring Dev Patel and directed by David Lowery this historical drama about the nephew of King Arthur makes a surprise new entry at number 2 this week.

The movie takes a very respectable, especially in the current box office climate $6.7 Million debut, largely pushed by very good critical reviews.


Falling to number 3 from its debut position at the top of the box office is the M. Night Shyamalan directed movie which takes $6.7 Million on its second weekend, a quite large 60% drop.

This takes the movie total US gross to $30.6 Million after its 2 weeks on the chart.
