The Santa Clause A U film should be suitable for audiences aged four years and over, although it is impossible to predict what might upset any particular child.

U films should be set within a positive framework and should offer reassuring counterbalances to any violence, threat or horror. If a work is particularly suitable for pre-school children, this will be indicated in the ratings info.

Breakdown of the top 5 movies in America weekend 20th - 22nd November 2020.

Freaky

Directed by Christopher Landon and starring Kathryn Newton and Vince Vaughn the horror comedy movie spends its second weekend at the top with a weekend gross of $1.22 Million, a 66% drop from last weekend.

This gives the movie a total gross in North America of $5.59 Million after 2 weeks of play.

The War With Grandpa

The surprise hit of late 2020, starring Robert De Niro, climbs back to number 3 as movie takes $733,067 over the weekend, 44% down from last weekend.

This gives the movie a total American gross of $16.18 Million after 7 weeks of release.

Let Him Go

The Kevin Costner former number 1 movie falls to number 3 this weekend with $710,000, 59% drop from last weekend, for a 3 week total of $7.92 Million.

Come Play

Another former number 1 movie remaining at number 4 this week takes $550,000 for the weekend, 49% down, for a total of $8.05 Million after 4 weeks.

The Santa Clause

<span class='red'><u><i><b>The Santa Clause</b></i></u></span>

Disney release another of their catalogue movies which makes its way into the top 5, at 5, as the Tim Allen Christmas movie takes $461,000 over the weekend, the movie has taken $145.29 Million since its release in 1995.

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them stays at the top of the UK box office for a second weekend keeping off Allied which makes its debut at number 2.

With a second weekend gross of £8.8 million Fantastic Beasts has a brilliant second weekend which brings its total gross after 2 weekends of release to £30 million.

This result is actually keeping in line with the Harry Potter series, the latter films had far better first weekends but fell to roughly the same for the second weekend.

The potential for Beasts to go on and make similar to the early Potter films at least is quite high if it keeps on this trajectory.

Landing at 2 this week if the latest Brad Pitt starring film Allied, co starring Marion Cotillard and directed by Robert Zemeckis the drama takes £1.3 million on its debut.

For both Pitt and Zemeckis this is a fairly typical opening gross, although for both this is no where near their highest grossing debuts.

Also new this week is Bad Santa 2 at 4 with &poind;.7 million and very bad reviews, A United Kingdom at 6, Dear Zindagi at 9 and Paterson at 10.

Fantastic beasts this week becomes the top total grossing movie on the chart while Storks is the longest running film at 7 weeks.
