The US box office got off to a good start for the first quarter of the year by which time the Will Smith and Martin Lawrence movie Bad Boys For Life was the surprise top movie, then in March everything changed.
When the pandemic hit hard cinemas closed for 4 months and although there were weekly charts it was mainly from drive in theatres and studios started shifting release dates hoping things would get back to normal by the end of the year.
Tenet opened in August and it was considered Warner Bros. opened it too early and the movie despite taking $58 Million was considered a flop.
Studios have moved their films around even more since cinemas started to re-open and have gone into 2021 or been moved to streaming, but Warner Bros. again have tested the water at the end of the year with Wonder Woman 1984 which got a release on Christams day 2020 at cinemas and on HBO Max.
Disney has bypassed cinema all together on 2 of their potential biggest movie with Mulan going direct to Disney+ (for a premium price) and the Pixar movie Soul released on Christmas Day.
As it stands the top 20 movies in the US took a reasonable $1.6 Billion but compared to 2019 the top 20 took $5.8 Billion.

With 5 weeks on the chart and 5 weeks at the top Christopher Nolans movie may not have saved cinema but with nothing in the way of bog new release due until No Time To Die on 12th November it could spend another 5 weeks at the top giving it 10 weeks in total, unless After We Collided as something gto say about that!
This weekend the movie took its lowest gross to date with £648.5K giving it a total of £15 Million and it jumps over Jumanji: The Next Level and is the 7th highest grossing of the year.
