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.
6th April 2021
This weekend marks the first weekend that indicates there are signs of a return to normal as the Warner Bros. movie Godzilla Vs. Kong storms into the box office with the highest debut gross since cinemas closed in March 2020.
The monster battle movie opened in America on Wednesday and has taken an incredible $48 Million until the end of Sunday night.

Here is the North American box office top 5 breakdown 2nd - 4th April 2021
Bringing together 2 of the biggest monsters in the cinema world has re-ignited the box office in a way where others have failed and the high action special effects movie takes $48.5 Million since its opening over 5 days.
The weekend Friday to Sunday gross is $32.2 Million which is still higher than anything in recent times.
The movie is now the third biggest movie since the pandemic started needing to just beat The Croods: A New Age and Tenet which it will do, but more importantly it getting the public back in movie theatres, and with most cinemas still only at 25% capacity this is even more impressive.
And to top things off the movie has even beaten the opening gross of the 2019 movie Godzilla: King of the Monsters which managed nearly $48 Million with no pandemic closures and limitations!
Finally the movie took 80% of the total of this weeks top 15 movie.
After all the news about Godzilla Vs. Kong its easy to forget that there was also a new movie at number 2, Evan Spiliotopoulos directs Jeffrey Dean Morgan in the movie which takes a very respectable $3.2 Million over the weekend.
The movie got fairly bad reviews but the public seem to like it and its good to see a second new movie hitting the box office in the current box office climate.
Falling from number 1 to number 3 this weekend the Bob Odenkirk starring movie takes £3.07 on its second weekend of release, a 55% drop, giving the movie a total of $11.87 Million.
Disneys latest animated feature is this week at number 4, falling from number 2, with $1.4 Million, a 44% drop from last weekend.
The movie has now taken $39.5 Million after 5 weeks in cinemas, and with it also Disney+ prime that will have taken some of the box office taking from the movie.
The cat and mouse duo fall to 5 this weekend with $1.4 Million, 44% down, giving it a $39.5 Million over 6 weeks.
The movie is currently the top grossing movie in America for 2021, it will lose out that place by next weekend by Godzilla Vs. kong.
3rd April 2021
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.
1st April 2021
The first real sign of a box office recovery in North America was evident on Wednesday March 21st as the Warner Bros. movie Godzilla Vs. Kong had a massive $9.6 Million debut.
This is by far the biggest opening for a movie over the last year during the lockdowns of the COVID-19 pandemic beating Tenet and Wonder Woman 1984.
Consider that, as with all Warner Bros. movies in 2021, the movie is also available in the US on the HBO Max streaming platform, meaning that people are hungry for movie in a theatre, and not many have the streaming service.
Movie theatres in two of the biggest US areas, New Your and Los Angeles, have re-opened to limited capacity over the last couple of weeks which will have helped boost the total for the movie.
The movie also had a massive opening this weekend in China where it grossed $69.2 Million topping the box office in that terretory and making it the top grossing movie of the week globally.
With cinemas set to open in the UK on May 17th after a nearly 5 month closure things are looking promising for the industry that has struggled over the last year.
16th March 2021
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.
