US Box Office Figures 2nd - 4th October 2020: In an ever diminishing box office Tenet remains at the top with 1993s Hocus Pocus the top new film at 2

Tenet
With Tenet still at the top of the US box office and no big new releases this weekend it was up to a 27 year old Halloween favourite to cheer up the box office.

Hocus Pocus is the top new movie of the weekend and it wasn't that far from going to the top but Tenet still had the strength to remain at the top.

With the new Bond movie, No Time To Die being delayed until April 2021 there is not a lot in the way of big new movies coming out now in 2020, there is Death On the Nile in mid December and Wonder Woman 1984 on Christmas Day so what we see now could be the shape of the box office for a while.

Here is a quick breakdown of this weeks UK box office.

  • Number 1 - Tenet (5th Weekend)
  • Highest debut - Hocus Pocus (@2)
  • Longest run - Ava (10 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - Tenet ($45,100,000)

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

Tenet

Five weeks in and Christopher Nolans movie is still the top film at the box office and this week it takes $2.7 Million, 21% down from last weekend.

The movie has now taken $45.1 Million in total at the US box office and is by far the top grossing movie since cinemas re-opened.

Hocus Pocus

Hocus Pocus

First released in 1993, and not doing that well at the box office, the movie has since become a seasonal favourite and this week re-enters the chart at number 2 with $1.9 Million.

This means that the Bette Midler and Sarah Jessica Parker movie from the Disney company has taken $41.4 Million since its first release.

The New Mutants

The second biggest hit of the post COVID-19 closedown box office is Disney's mutant movie which this week falls to 3 with a $1 Million gross giving it a 6 week total of $20.9 Million, only the second movie to go over $20 Million since the re-opening.
