North American top 5 box office breakdown 22nd - 24th October 2021


The movie got delayed by over a year, and after the failure of last years Tenet its wasn;t much of a suprise that Warner Bros. did, but this week the Denis Villeneuve vision of Frank Herbert classic sci-fi, impossible to film, book finally hits the box office.

The movie comes in with a weekend gross of just over $40 Million, potentially lower than expected as the movie is also available on HBO Max, altohugh as Halloween Kills has shown movies can do well as the box office even when on streaming the same day.

The film which stars Timothee Chalamet and Rebecca Ferguson might have a short stay at the top but the response has been god enough that a sequel is almost guaranteed.

Halloween Kills

Hitting the top spot last weekend the movie was always destined for a single weekend at the top and this week takes $14.5 Million on its second weekend of release, a large 71% drop over last weekend, maybe dur to its availability on streaming?

The movie has now taken $73.1 Million at the American box office, and although the movie might get a boost next weekend as its Halloween we should see the movie sink down the box office quite rapidly now.

No Time To Die

Bond movie number 25 has not quite hit the same stride in America as it has across the rest of the world and this week takes $11.8 Million, a 50% drop over last weekend.

The movie has been on the box office for 3 weeks now and has a US total gros of $120 Million making it the 7th top movie of 2021.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage

The superhero villain smash hit sequel falls to number 4 this weekend with $9.1 Million, a modest 45% drop over last weekend.

This gives the movie a total gross of $181.8 Million, very good for a sequel and its running almost parellel with its predecessor, the movie is now the 3rd top movie of 2021.

Ron's Gone Wrong

The new animated movie from directors Sarah Smith, who brought us Arthur Christmas and Jean-Philippe Vine makes its debut at number 5 this week with $7.3 Million.

Spending a third weekend at the top of the UK box office this weekend the 25th Bond movie No TIme To Die which is doing good numbers across the globe and has taken nearly $500 Million globally.

The highest new movie of the weekend is Venom: Let There Be Carnage which despite a strong challenge makes its debut at number 2 while the horror movie Halloween Kills is new at number 3.

To finish off this weeks top 5 there is Ron's Gone Wrong which comes in at number 5 while maybe a little disappointing the Ridley Scott directed The Last Duel misses the top 5 with an entry at 6 with £325,522.

It was a busy week for new releases with Honsla Rakh entering at 8 with £121,657 and Arracht entering at 10 with £35,150, finally there is a re-entry at number 14 for the seasonal favourite Hocus Pocus at number 14.

As the world is still trying to cope with the global pandemic this is never going to hit the same heights at the other movies based on a ride

The Green Knight

Starring Dev Patel and directed by David Lowery this historical drama about the nephew of King Arthur makes a surprise new entry at number 2 this week.

The movie takes a very respectable, especially in the current box office climate $6.7 Million debut, largely pushed by very good critical reviews.


Falling to number 3 from its debut position at the top of the box office is the M. Night Shyamalan directed movie which takes $6.7 Million on its second weekend, a quite large 60% drop.

This takes the movie total US gross to $30.6 Million after its 2 weeks on the chart.

In truth it had a tough fight with the new number 2 movie The Green Knight and only missed out on the number 2 position by a few thousand dollars.

Black Widow

The Marvel movie falls to number 4 this weekend with $6.4 Million, a decent 45% drop, giving the movie a $167 Million total after 4 weeks.


Finally in the top 5 a new entry for Matt Damon as his new movies makes its debut at 5 with $5.12 Million.
