Here is a breakdown of the UK box office top 5 30th October - 1st November 2020.
The animated feature from directors Toby Genkel and Sean McCormack spends a second weekend at the top of the UK box office with £190,761 down 42% from last weekend.
This leaves the movie with a total gross just shy of 1 million, £955,370, the movie could go over the million mark if can survive cinema closures.
Making an incredible leap up the box office from 8 to 2 and with a 71% increase from last week with £186,063 giving the movie £3.6 Million since release in 1993.
The reason for this box office run seems to be the classic status the movie has gained in the last 25+ years and that their is a hunger for movies on the big screen and with no big blockbusters this is filling the need.
The Liam Neeson starring revenge thriller falls to number 2 this week with £152,555, 40% down, for a total UK gros of £573,598 after 2 weeks of release.
The classic novel adaptation starring Julie Walters and Colin Firth falls to number 4 this week with £142,101, down just 8% from last week.
The movie is actually doing quite well in the COVID-19 era and has taken £615,981 after 2 weeks of release.
The teen gothic remake makes its debut this week at number 5 with a debut gross of £119,680.
Comparing it to the original movie from 1996 is unfair mainly because of the pandemic, but out of interest it was release in 1996 at the same time of year and took £1.16 Million on its debut for a total UK gross of £2.7 Million.
Despite the favourable reviews this remake will come nowhere near those figures.
