The US box office is having the quietest November in many years and this weekend an all new top 4 has Midway topping the chart on its debut albeit with one of the lowest takes for a top film, last weeks number 1, Terminator: Dark Fate, fell to number 5 on its second weekend.


Directed by Roland Emmerich the World Way II drama hits the top of the US box office with a very low for America $6.4 Million.

The film has performed better than expected for the studio and with little in the way of positive reviews once the late November and December big hitters are released the film will disappear quickly.

<span class='red'><u><i><b>Doctor Sleep</b></i></u></span>

Doctor Sleep

Not performing as expected the sequel to 1980's The Shining enters the US box office with $5.2 Million.

With Halloween well out of the way and a busy period coming this will make its way onto home video quite quickly and unfortunately will slip out of the box office.

Last Christmas

A lot of publicity has hit this Christmas hit and the new film from director Paul Feig lands at number 3 this weekend with a gross of $4 Million.

The movie is being heavily publicised for its use of music from Wham! and the late George Micheal, especially the track Last Christmas which the film shares a title, this could see a boost more towards Christmas itself but it may as easily burn out quickly.

Playing With Fire

Starring John Cena a former WWE star the makers of this film must be looking for the kind of success that Dwayne Johnson has had but the film lands at number 4 this week with $3.5 Million.

Terminator: Dark Fate

There is no denying that the new Terminator movie, which had large expectations, simply hasn't re-ignited the once mighty franchise despite bringing back Linda Hamilton.

The film falls this week to number 5 with a weekend gross of $2.8 Million with a total gross in America now $40.4 Million.

The movie is falling fast and it will be lucky if it gets to $100 Million at the US market.


The DC Villain movie falls out of the top 5 this weekend but its the highest total grossing movie on the US top 10 with an amazing $306.8 Million after 6 weeks of release.

Terminator: Dark Fate manages to stay at the top of the global box office this weekend despite a very strong challenge from new film Midway which made its debut at number 2.

Terminator: Dark Fate

The box office figures for the latest Terminator movie have not been anywhere near what the film makers would have wanted, but the movie does manage a second weekend at the top of the global box office with $40.7 Million from 54 countries.

This pushes the films total global gross to $199.3 Million, and with the film loosing audiences around the world this will end up as the lowest grossing sequel of the Terminator series, and maybe mark the end.



Making its box office debut at number 2 is the Roland Emmerich directed World War II drama which narrowly misses out on the top spot with $39 Million from 21 countries.

The film has mixed reviews across the board and a short stay seems like especially as we his a very busy December with some big movie releases.


The DC Villain movie which has far passed all expectation is getting close to the magical $1 Billion mark at the global box office.

This weekend it is at number 3 and takes $29.5 Million from a still massively wide 80 countries which puts its total global gross at $984.6 Million, it will bet to $1 Billion by next weekend.

Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil

Disney's autumn sequel movie moves down to 4 with a slim drop and takes $27.9 Million for the weekend pushing its total gross to $430.3 Million.

Doctor Sleep

The sequel to The Shining has not done as well as expected and this week falls to 5 with $27.1 Million from 69 countries pushing the total global gross to $34.1 Million.

Director Todd Phillips movie Joker is proving that not all thing superhero has to be Disney as the movie spends a 5th weekend at the top, while the animated movie The Addams Family makes a very rare move on the chart and Doctor Sleep makes its debut lower than expected.


The Joaquin Phoenix starring movie spends a 5th weekend at the top of the box office, the most in 2019, with a weekend gross of £2.5 Million, yet again a very slim drop from the previous week.

Admittedly this is not the summer where weekend grosses are much higher but this is still an massive achievement and the film has been a monster hit for the DC Universe and Warner Bros.

The movies total gross in the UK is now £51.5 Million, it is the 4th highest grossing film of 2019 and is now the 35th highest grossing film ever.

The Addams Family

After a fairly low debut of number 4 last weekend the animated film based on the 60's TV show makes the unprecedented move of not only going up the chart to number 2 but also taking more money than its debut.

It was a school holiday which will have helped the movie but a weekend gross of £2.2 Million is more than £100,000 more than last week.

The film has a total gross of £6.9 Million.

Interesting to note that over the week Monday - Sunday it actually beat Joker in week grosses by a slim margin.

Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil

Disneys sequel movie falls to 3 this weekend with £1.8 Million for a total gross of £11.6 Million after 3 weeks of release.

<span class='red'><u><i><b>Doctor Sleep</b></i></u></span>

Doctor Sleep

Highest new film of the week is the long awaited sequel to Stanley Kubrick's cult classic The shining.

The movie is also based on a Stephen King book and after much publicity the movie makes is debut at number 4 with a weekend gross of £1.4 Million.

A lot lower than expectation, and with Halloween well and truly out of the way, the film may struggle over the coming months, especially with some big movie due for release over the rest of November and December.

Terminator: Dark Fate

Hailed as a return to form for the Terminator franchise the movie has simply not ignited the box office and on its second weekend it falls to number 4 with a weekend gross of £1.2 Million.

This means that after 2 weeks the film has taken just £5.3 Million, which is lower than the previous movie, Terminator Genisys, by a couple of million.

The movie is also not performing as well as expected across the world, does this mean that the Terminator franchise is dead? This film reportedly cost over $200 Million to make, not including marketing cost, will the studio still want to make more movie when this one looks like it will loose money?

Downton Abbey

The British TV show movie is at number 15 this weekend and has spent 8 weeks on the box office, the longest, and has a total UK gross of £27.7 Million.

At the UK box office this weekend, Friday, 1st November 2019, there are 4 new releases looking to take your attention at the local multiplex and knock Joker from the top of the UK box office chart next week.
