Godzilla Vs. Kong has a second high grossing weekend and retains the top spot on the US box office and with no studios releasing any big movies the top new film is Voyagers at number 5.
As confidence grows in the industry with the success Warner Bros. is having with the bog monster movie more hits are coming in the weeks ahead and studios are starting to reschedule their much delayed potential blockbusters.
Here is the US box office QuickView
Here is a breakdown of the top 5 movies at the US box office 9th - 11th April 2021.
Warner Bros. must be finally pleased that one of their movies is re-starting the US box office after the closures of the global pandemic, they tries with Tenet at the end of the summer last year which failed but the big monster fight movie is hitting the right spot.
On its second weekend of release the movie takes a remarkable $13.38 Million, although this is a drop of 72% over last weekend, a higher drop than you would normally see for a big grossing debut.
The film has taken a very good, for the pandemic era, $69.5 Million since its release and is the top grossing movie in America for 2021.
Another film which is enjoying success is the former number one movie which climbs back to number 2 this weekend with $2.65 Million, only 14% down from last weekend.
This gives the movie a $15.6 Million total gross from 3 weeks of release.
Despite the poor reviews for this Evan Spiliotopoulos directed film, and falling to number 3 this weekend, this horror movie is enjoying some surprise success.
This weekend the film takes $2.4 Million, a 25% drop from last weekend, which takes its gross to $6.73 Million on its second weekend of release.
Disney's latest animated feature is still doing well on the box office and after 6 weeks of release it takes $2.14 Million, up 4% from last weekend, for a total of $35.24 Million.
Highest new movie of the week lands at number 5 as director Neil Burger scores a top 5 movie with an debut gross of $1.35 Million.

This weekend has a couple of big hitters making their way to streaming services that have been delayed for months due to the lockdown in the UK.
Godzilla Vs. Kong and Chaos Walking are both potential blockbusters that have missed out on a place in movie theatres due to the over crowding that is happening later in the year due to delayed films.

Another film which has had its release date moved about quite a bit, the battle of the big monsters from Warner Bros. Godzilla Vs. Kong which has been given a 12A certificate in the UK by the BBFC.
The movie is a continuation of sort of the 2017 movie Kong: Skull Island and the 2019 movie Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
This time the two oversized creatures battle it out in a big city before going in search of the mighty titans that live under the earths surface.
Legends collide in “Godzilla vs. Kong” as these mythic adversaries meet in a spectacular battle for the ages, with the fate of the world hanging in the balance. Kong and his protectors undertake a perilous journey to find his true home, and with them is Jia, a young orphaned girl with whom he has formed a unique and powerful bond. But they unexpectedly find themselves in the path of an enraged Godzilla, cutting a swath of destruction across the globe.
The epic clash between the two titans—instigated by unseen forces—is only the beginning of the mystery that lies deep within the core of the Earth.
BBFC certificate breakdown.

After a re-release in China the 2009 James Cameron movie Avatar has once again become the top grossing movie of all time after it was knocked down to second place by Avengers: Endgame in 2019.
The 3D spectacular became the top grossing movie of all time on its initial release, replacing another James Cameron directed movie Titanic, which had been there for 10 years.
Avatar was also at the top for 10 years before being replaced by Avengers: Endgame which narrowly grossed more than the $2.78 Billion Avatar took with a $2.79 Billion global gross.
It was clear that all it was going to take was a successful re-release of the Avatar movie to reclaim the top, and in a period of time when studios are being cautious about releasing new movies why not release a film which has already made its money?
The real big winner here is Disney, they of course own the Marvel Universe movies for which Avengers: Endgame is one and since the 20th Century Fox acquisition in 2019/2020 they also own the Avatar franchise, so are Disney now going to re-release the Avengers movie?
James Cameron is currently working on 4 more Avatar movies and judging from this re-release the fan base is still there and hence the future for the franchise looks promising, maybe we'll get the first $3 Billion movie once the pandemic is out of the way?

File this under, because its Friday! A YouTuber called Wulff Den have put the Christopher Nolan movie onto 5 Game Boy Advanced cartridges, and made the movie vaguely watchable.
In the video the guy explains why he did it, and how he did it, and from the video you could probably do the same yourself, but would you want to?
Wulff Den explains that the reason he did it was on a whim and because when the movie came out in 2020, in the middle of the pandemic, the director explained that the movie must be seen on the big screen, so he compressed the movie down to fit on a small screen, the GBA 5 inch screen!
As explained the reason why it has to be on 5 cartridges is because each can hold 30 minutes at watchable quality and the movie in almost exactly 2 hours and 30 minutes.
The video runs lower than the GBA resolution at 192 x 128 and it has 6 FPS (Frames Per Second), but its claimed that it is just about watchable!
This isn't for everyone and watching the video is probably enough, and besides you would have to flash your own roms, not hard but hard enough, we wont be seeing this on sale anytime soon but its an interesting side project for anyone with time on their hands!
