US top 5 box office breakdown 23rd - 25th October 2020.

Honest Thief

Liam Neeson stars in the revenge thriller which remains at the top of the US box office for a second weekend, the week taking $2.3 Million which is only a 36% drop from last weekend.

This pushes the total gross in the US to $7.4 Million on its second weekend, and with more and more cinemas starting to open it could be one of the bigger film to open during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The War With Grandpa

The Tim Hill directed comedy starring Robert De Niro remains at number 2 this week with $1.8 Million, only 25% down from last weekend.

The film has been out for 3 weeks now and has taken $9.7 Million since release.

The Empty Man

The Empty Man

**UPDATE** With the release of the final weekend figures The Empty Man has taken just a little more than Tenet and so ended in third place rather than fourth.

Highest new movie of the week is the David Prior directed horror movie which lands at number 3 this weekend with $1.26 Million.

with Halloween next weekend the movie should have a strong second weekend but then the potential to drop off the chart is strong, although horror movies did shine during the pandemic cinema shutdown when only drive-in theatres were open.

Tenet

Warner Bros. have admitted that their 'savour of cinema' movie was actually a failure and just maybe they opened the movie too soon, regardless of that the movie takes $1.3 Million this weekend, a drop of only 19%.

The movie has been on the box office for 8 weeks now and is by far the highest grossing movie since cinemas closed in March with $52.5 Million, as a side note Warner Bros. have been cagy about the movies box office figures.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Disney's re-release of their Henry Selick directed classic falls to number 5 this weekend with $577,000, a 57% drop, giving the movie a total gross of $76.9 Million since its 1994 release.
