Top 5 US box office breakdown 16th - 18th April 2021.

Godzilla Vs. Kong

Three weeks on and there is no stopping the monster movie clash as it by a long shot becomes the top movie during the pandemic and the top movie in the US this year.

The movie has far outgrossed expectation as this weekend is takes $7.8 Million, down a large 43% from last weekend, to give the movie a massive $80.6 Million total gross.

It will get a massive challenge for the top movie next weekend as Mortal Kombat hits the big screen under lots of hype.


The Bob Odenkirk starring action movie stays put at number 2 this weekend with $2.5 Million, down only 6% from last weekend which is excellent for a movie 4 weeks on and during the pandemic, but this is a sign of the recovering box office.

The movie has now taken a very respectable $19 Million over its 4 week run.

The Unholy

The Jeffrey Dean Morgan starring horror movie remains at number 3 this weekend with a gross of $2 Million, down just 15% from last weekend.

Despite the less favourable reviews for the movie it is proving to be a hit with movie goers during the pandemic and has taken a very respectable $9.55 Million over 3 weeks.

Raya and the Last Dragon

Disney's latest move started incredibly strong at the box office 7 weeks ago and this week take $1.92 Million, down 13% from last weekend.

The movie has been available on the Disney+ platform, with a premium price, since release which will have effected its box office run, but the movie has still taken $37.69 Million.

Tom and Jerry

The animated duo in their live action movie moves up to number 5 this weekend with $1.11 Million, down only 8%, giving it a $42.6 Million total over 8 weeks of release.

Sony are keeping their Spider-Man interests alive with the release of super villain movie Venom on 3rd October 2018.

The film is directed by Ruben Fleischer and Stars Tom Hardy and Michelle Williams.

The BBFC have given the film a 15 certificate in the UK for strong threat, horror, violence and the film has a running time of 112 minutes.

In a week where not a lot has changed on the box office and the top 3 are the same headed up by Fast and Furious 8 the highest new entry is Their Finest at number 4.

Proving that the series is still well and truly alive Fast 8 takes £3.5 million on its second weekend of release, this is below the previous films second weekend.

The action drama is doing great guns in the UK and its total UK gross now sits at £23 million.

Highest new film of the week is Their Finest starring Gemma Arterton which makes its debut at number 4 with £0.8 million.

Also new this week is Unforgettable at number 7 which takes a very low £270,000 debut for star Katherine Heigl.

Twenty five years ago
The Hand That Rocks The Cradle was the new film of the week making its debut at the top while Hook fell to number 2.

It's 35 years since Star Wars made it debut in the US, it opened in Manns Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles (and actually 31 other locations across America), and people queued around the block to see it.

The legacy of the original has been immense and still to this day the Star Wars series of 6 films is one of the highest grossing movie series of all time, behind only Harry Potter and James Bond.

The franchise hit mass criticism and lost some of it's appeal after the 1999 release of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace which was to explain the back story of the popular villain Darth Vader, but all it really did was anger fans because it was frankly quite naff.

The disappointment of the new trilogy of films angered fans more because a few years previously Lucas had messed with the loved original trilogy adding new special effects and scenes, fans preferred the original theatrical release, especially the changed Jaba The Hut scene and the now infamous Gredo shoots first scene.

Despite all this Star Wars is alive and well, and in truth us fans still love the series, the new films got better as the series went on and we all hope and prey for the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special to be released on Blu-ray some time.

It's like it was 1991 again and there is a new Robin Hood film in production, this time it wont star an American with a fake British accent, it'll star an Australian with a fake British accent.

That Aussie will be Russell Crowe, and today USA Today has the first image of the man in his "Hood" gear, check out the image below.

The BBC currently has a TV series of Robin Hood running on Saturday night, it's now in it's 3rd series, I;m not a fan of the show but this could be what has ignited the reason for this film. Now don't get me wrong the film is being directed by Ridley Scott who is one of the best British directors alive and I usually love his movies, but the image of Robin Hood in the BBC promos is how I imagine Robin Hood to be.

The publicity still of Robin Hood looks more like someone caught Russell Crowe out on a Sunday afternoon taking the dog for a walk and he thought he would take a bow and arrow in case he saw some deer to shoot.

I'm not quite sure what different angle this film can have on the legend but I can tell you that I was more excited about Kevin Costner's Prince of Thieves back in 1991 than I am this.
