News from around the web

This week was the first sign of things may be starting to get back to normal service on the cinema industry and Tom & Jerry: The Movie has the second biggest opening weekend since the spread of the pandemic forced the closure of cinemas a year ago.

There is little else going on this week but the coming months are starting to look better, New York cinemas have started to re-open with limited capacity and on the other side of America California will start to re-open cinema doors soon.

Of not this week is the small amount most films have dropped from last weekend, a sure sign that cinemas are starting to open up, and that people are starting to attend.

US box office Quickview

  • Number 1 - Tom & Jerry: The Movie (1st week)
  • Highest debut - Tom & Jerry: The Movie (@1)
  • Longest run - The War With Grandpa (21 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - The Croods: A New Age ($52,430,045)

Here is the US box office top 5 breakdown 26th - 28th February 2021

Tom & Jerry: The Movie

Tom & Jerry: The Movie

Warner Bros. have by far been the studio leading to way during the last year as far as releases is concerned, Tenet and Wonder Woman 1984 didn't pay off as much as they had hoped but this live action version of the classic cartoon seems to have hit the spot.

Directed by Tim Story and starring Chloë Grace Moretz alongside animated versions of the famous cat and mouse the movie takes an incredible $14.11 Million on its opening weekend.

The movie is also available on HBO Max, but if it follows in the steps of fellow kid pic The Croods: A New Age it could be around a while.

The Croods: A New Age

Falling from its second spell at the top of the US box office the animated sequel takes $1.25 Million this weekend, down just 27% from last week.

This gives the movie a total gross of $52.43 Million after 14 weeks of release.

The Little Things

Falling to number 3 this week is the John Lee Hancock directed movie which takes $930,000 over the weekend, a drop of just 23%, the movie has taken a very good $12.91 Million over 5 weeks of release.

Wonder Woman 1984

Wonder Woman 1984

Director Patty Jenkins sequel remains at 4 and takes $705,000 this weekend, down 12% from last week giving the movie a $43.61 Million total gross after 10 weeks.

The Marksman

Liam Neeson stays put at number 5 this weekend with $701,002, down just 10%, giving the movie a $12.34 Million total from 7 weeks of release.

The heat wave the UK is experiencing largely kept audiences away from cinemas over the weekend and for a week with 2 big releases nothing did that well at the box office.

Monsters University was the champion debuting in the top spot but it's £3.46 million gross is way lower than expected.

Despicable Me 2 drops to second place with £2.22 million and second highest new entry Pacific Rim has come up very close behind with £2.19 million. Inline with my predictions Monsters University debut at the top, although I predicted the highest debut weekend of the year and it fell short by £8 million and Pacific Rim did debut in third.

Last year Ice Ace Continental Drift finally for a national release after a couple of weeks on limited and went back to the top of the box office with £10 million knocking The Amazing Spider-Man from the top after a single week.

Highest new film (of sorts) was Magic Mike at 3.

Five years ago Mamma Mia! stormed the box office on it's debut weekend taking the top spot from Hancock which fell to runner up spot. Mamma Mia would go on to be the highest grossing film in the UK for a short time.

Ten years ago Charlie's Angels Full Throttle was still at the top with Daddy Daycare being the highest new film at 3.

Fifteen years ago Six Days Seven Nights was the top film with Mad City the highest debut at 6.

Despicable Me 2 easily keeps away all newcomers to stay at the top of the UK box office by a strong margin during it's second week of release.

The animated sequel took close to £4 million pound over the weekend, and despite a drop of £10 million from it's debut it stayed comfortably.

The strongest challenge of the week was from Now You See Me, debuting at 2 with a take of just under £3 million for the 3 day weekend.

According to my prediction Now You See Me did much better than I expected, I predicted a top 5 entry and didn't expect it to debut at number 2

The other new film I predicted last weekend to enter the box office chart was The Internship, which debuted at 3. I expected this to be the big challenge for Despicable Me 2.

This time last year The Amazing Spider-man took the box office by story, the reboot film flew into the top spot with a debut of £11 million and left the rest of the box office dead.

Five years ago Will Smith starred in the superhero movie Hancock and debuted at the top with just under £10 million knocking Prince Caspian from the top.

Ten years ago Charlies Angels: Full Throttle debuted at the top knocking Jim Carey in Bruce Almighty from the top.

Fifteen years ago there was a fairly static box office with Six Days Seven Nights retaining to box office crown.

Twenty years ago Jurassic Park was the big film of the summer and although Arnie was challenging with Last Action Hero it was never a threat to the dinosaur film.
