The top 15 movies in the UK this week failed to take over £100,000 as much of the UK is experiencing new lockdowns and many cinemas will have been closed on Friday, Christmas Day.

Wonder Woman 1984 retained its position at the top of the box office with ease and is responsible for 77% of this weeks box office total takings and as there were no new releases we have a fairly static top 5.

Worthy of note this week is that the number 15 movie, Michael Ball & Alfie Boe: Back Together, only took £548 and the movie with the lowest weekly from was Peter Duncan Presents Jack And The Beanstalk which dropped 60% from last weekend.

UK box office Quickview.

  • Number 1 - Wonder Woman 1984 (2nd week)
  • Highest debut - The Greatest Showman (Re-entered at 4)

Here is the top 5 films in America this weekend

The Wretched

Spending a third weekend at the top this horror film from directors Brett Pierce and Drew T. Pierce took $85K from its drive-in showings to bring its total gross in the US to nearly $300K.

How To Build A Girl

Starring Beanie Feldstein this comedy movie stays at number 2 this weekend for a second week taking $36K for a total gross of $55K.

Circles: The Restorative Justice Project

Circles: The Restorative Justice Project

This is kind of the highest new entry of the week although it was released in 2018!

The documentary feature directed by Cassidy Friedman takes $4k over the weekend, the film wisely taking advantage of the lack of new films at the cinema.

Strike

This animated feature from May of 2019 spends its second week on the box office (of sorts) taking $1.5K on its second weekend pushing its total to $4K.

The Burnt Orange Heresy

With a take of $55 this drama directed by Giuseppe Capotondi spends its fourth weekend on the box office, it has now taken $40K.

Thoughts

We know under normal circumstances the American box office would have been far different than this but its fun to take a look at what is happening across the county with the movie industry until we get more theatres opening.

At the moment the studios are hoping that will be by July when Warner Bros. have their big tentpole picture Tenet directed by Christopher Nolan opening.

Cinemas across the globe are still largely closed due to COVID-19 but some cinemas in America and globally are starting to open.

Drive-in theatres where there are 305 across America with 549 screen have opened and also Norway and South Korea are still report box office charts.

The US chart only has five film so here are the figures from those movies where distributers have reported figures and also a global chart compiled from the countries that have released data.

US Box Office

The Wretched

Directed by Brett Pierce and Drew T. Pierce this horror movie got well received by critics when released on VOD in other countries and is doing well in drive-in move theatres across America as it take $89,608 over the weekend.

The movie got its debut last weekend and has made $165,294 in total to date at the box office.

How To Build A Girl

How To Build A Girl

Starring Beanie Feldstein and Emma Thompson this comedy made its debut this weekend so in essence is the highest new film with $13,201.

The film went direct to VOD a few weeks ago and its impossible to tell how much it will make on its "box office" run.

True History Of The Kelly Gang

Released back in late April this drama is directed by Justin Kurzel and takes $1,456 over the weekend for a $32,496 total after 2 weeks of release.

Trolls World Tour

One of the most controversial movie in recent times the Trolls followup in from Universal, the controversy is not due to the content but the fact that its success on VOD has lead Universal to think about which film it releases in cinemas and which film it releases on both at the same time, a move AMC and Cinemark have not been happy with.

The film takes $126,662 (from South Korea) on its debut and has actually taken $2.6 Million globally since release on 6th April 2020.

Farewell My Concubine

There are no major blockbusters being released during this time so cinema chains are looking to fill their screens with older movies and so this 26 year old movie is the fourth top film this week.

The movie makes $111,157 from its single country release but the film has taken $5.6 Million globally since its initial release.

Love The Way You Are
