28th August 2020
Cinemas closed back in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and since then many movies have had their release date changed or gone directly to VOD at a premium rate, the movie Tenet has for a long time been seen as the movie that will reopen cinemas and bring audiences back.
After a couple of release date changes the movie is here and with this event many more cinemas are re-opening, with safety precautions in place.
With the pandemic still an issue in the US the movie still has another couple of weeks before its release but cinemas are reopening far slower there.
Here is a rundown of this weeks movies, and I suspect one of them will replace one the current number one film, Unhinged, from the top of the box office chart.
Check back on Monday to see if these new releases enter the UK Weekend Box Office Chart.
14th September 2017
After a couple of weeks of very little excitement at the Uk box office this week explodes with the release of Warner Bros. IT which dominates the chart and easily enters at the top.
IT enters the Uk box office with just over £10 million which puts in in the top 100 for UK best opening films and it is the only film on the top 10 to gross over a million.
The hype that has been put into the marketing of the film has been huge and it has paid off, and with favourable reviews, and Stephen King being a favourite in the UK the film was bound to do well.
With nothing of note coming out this weekend coming IT is bound to continue at the top at least for the next week.
American Made falls from the top to number 2 this week with a gross of just over half a million, this brings the films total gross to £4.3 million after 3 weeks of play.
Once again Despicable Me 3 is the longest running film of the chart with 11 weeks and once again Dunkirk os the highest total grossing film with an excellent £55 million, it is now the 19th highest grossing film ever in the UK.
