News from around the web

Liam Neeson remains at the top of the US box office this weekend with the revenge thriller Honest Thief, in fact the top 3 movies remain the same as last week!

The highest new movie of the weekend is horror movie The Empty Man which makes its debut at number 4, also making a debut this week is Monsters Inc. re-release which enters at 7 and After We Collided which makes its debut at 8.

Here is the US box office Quickview.

  • Number 1 - Honest Thief (2nd week)
  • Highest debut - The Empty Man (@4)
  • Longest run - Unhinged (11 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - Tenet ($52,500,000) (not including re-releases)

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.

Liam Neeson takes over from Robert De Niro this weekend in Honest Thief which makes a very strong (in the current climate) debut at the top and pushing The War With Grandpa down to number 2.

With last weeks top film falling to number 2 there are a couple of catalogue movies in the lower end of the top 5, expected due to the lack of blockbuster movies getting released.

2 hearts

Further down the chart there are a few new movies, 2 Hearts is new at number 6, Love And Monsters makes its debut at number 9 and The Kid Detective one below at number 10.

Here is this weeks US box office Quickview.

  • Number 1 - Honest Thief (1st Week)
  • Highest debut - Honest Thief (@1)
  • Longest run - Unhinged (10 weeks)
  • Highest total gross (excluding re-releases) - Tenet ($50,600,000)

Here is the breakdown of this weeks US top 5 movies 16th - 18th October 2020.

Honest Thief

Liam Neeson returns to the revenge action genre with this movie directed by Mark Williams which makes its North American debut at the top with $4.2 Million (including previews), $3.7 Million Friday - Sunday.

This is not a bad debut in the current COVID-19 climate and is among the top debuts since cinemas started to reopened.

The War With Grandpa

Falling to number 2 after a single week at the top is the Tim Hill directed comedy starring Robert De Niro which this weekend taked $2.5 Million, falling 31% from last weekend.
