UK Box Office Figures 2nd - 4th October 2020: With the box office continuing it slow pace Tenet remains at the top for a 6th weekend and Cats And Dogs 3 is the top new movie

Tenet
We all know there are no new big blockbusters coming out at the moment, and Tenet is still at the top for a 6th weekend, but comparing this to the amazing 6 week number 1 run of Joker from 2019 is unfair.

I suspect Tenet would not have been a 6 weeks number 1 under normal circumstances, 2 maybe 3 at the most, and although the total gross in the UK would have been in the £10 of million it would not have had the press the movie got.

Still we are where we are and its till the top film in the UK, and Cats & Dogs: Paws Unite! is the top new film at number 2!

Here is a quick look breakdown of this week top 15 box office.

  • Number 1 - Tenet (6 weeks)
  • Highest debut - Cats & Dogs: Paws Unite! (@2)
  • Longest run - Onward (17 weeks)
  • Highest total gross = Tenet (£15,948,191)

Here is a breakdown of the top 5 movies in the UK 2nd - 4th October 2020.

Tenet

The Christopher Nolan directed movie is now 6 weeks at number 1 equalling the runs of The World Is Not Enough (1999) and Joker (2019), it takes just £628.2K this weekend which is only 3% down from last weekend.

This puts the movies total gross at £15.9 Million after 6 weeks, and as expected it is the top grossing movie since cinemas re-opened and the 6th highest of 2020 overtaking Dolittle.

Cats & Dogs: Paws Unite!

Cats & Dogs: Paws Unite!

Top new movies of the weekend is the third film in the Cats & Dogs series which takes £456.5K on its debut.

This is a movie very much aimed at children, can we expect a massive drop next weekend or will the current climate keep it in the top 5?

After We Collided

After a fantastic start to its box office run the Roger Kumble directed teen drama falls to number 3 this weekend with £390.2K, a drop of 24% from last weekend.

The movie has now taken quite an amazing £3.1 Million after 5 weeks of release.

The movie has now entered the top 20 movies for 2020 at number 20 and with its current pace at the box office could go higher.

Bill & Ted Face The Music

The third Bill & Ted movie has had a hard time with its box office takings, but it does spend a third weekend on the chart this weekend with a gross of £146.5K, although this is a 32% drop from last weekend.

This gives the movie a 3 week total of just over £1 Million, not bad for a movie which can onto VOD day and date with cinema.

The Elfkins

Both new releases in the top 5 this weekend were children's film and this Ute von Munchow-Pohl directed movie lands at 5 with £131.3K on its debut.
