We all know there are no new big blockbusters coming out at the moment, and Tenet is still at the top for a 6th weekend, but comparing this to the amazing 6 week number 1 run of Joker from 2019 is unfair.
I suspect Tenet would not have been a 6 weeks number 1 under normal circumstances, 2 maybe 3 at the most, and although the total gross in the UK would have been in the £10 of million it would not have had the press the movie got.
Still we are where we are and its till the top film in the UK, and Cats & Dogs: Paws Unite! is the top new film at number 2!
Here is a quick look breakdown of this week top 15 box office.
Here is a breakdown of the top 5 movies in the UK 2nd - 4th October 2020.
The Christopher Nolan directed movie is now 6 weeks at number 1 equalling the runs of The World Is Not Enough (1999) and Joker (2019), it takes just £628.2K this weekend which is only 3% down from last weekend.
This puts the movies total gross at £15.9 Million after 6 weeks, and as expected it is the top grossing movie since cinemas re-opened and the 6th highest of 2020 overtaking Dolittle.
Top new movies of the weekend is the third film in the Cats & Dogs series which takes £456.5K on its debut.
This is a movie very much aimed at children, can we expect a massive drop next weekend or will the current climate keep it in the top 5?
After a fantastic start to its box office run the Roger Kumble directed teen drama falls to number 3 this weekend with £390.2K, a drop of 24% from last weekend.
The movie has now taken quite an amazing £3.1 Million after 5 weeks of release.
The movie has now entered the top 20 movies for 2020 at number 20 and with its current pace at the box office could go higher.
The third Bill & Ted movie has had a hard time with its box office takings, but it does spend a third weekend on the chart this weekend with a gross of £146.5K, although this is a 32% drop from last weekend.
This gives the movie a 3 week total of just over £1 Million, not bad for a movie which can onto VOD day and date with cinema.
Both new releases in the top 5 this weekend were children's film and this Ute von Munchow-Pohl directed movie lands at 5 with £131.3K on its debut.

Todd Phillips movie Joker leads the pack of Oscar nomination with 11 nods including Best Film, Best Director and Best Actor.
Other notable entries include Scarlett Johansson getting 2 nomination for The Marriage Story and JoJo Rabbit.
The Best Actress award is always one of the most open but the big money will be on Renée Zellweger for Judy, especially as Jennifer Lopez didn't even get recognition for Hustlers.
For The Marriage Story lead actor Adam Driver also gets a nomination but we all know the award on the night will go to Joaquin Phoenix in Joker.
Little Women did very well with nominations as well with Saoirse Ronan getting a nod for Best Actress and Florence Pugh getting the recognition for Best Supporting Actress.
Sam Mendes will likely walk away with Best Director and his film 1917 is odd on favourite to win Best Feature on the night.
The ceremony is on 9th February 2020 and once again there will be no host after the success of last years hostless ceremony.
