Box Office Gross Flow

4th Oct

The Chinese box office is far outpacing any other country at the moment and can be seen as a model of how to re-open your box office as two movies gross over $150 Million each.

Sequel movie My People, My Homeland and animated feature Legend Of Deification were so far ahead in the weekend takings not nothing else had a look in and the third place movie, Tenet, took a fraction over the same period.

Here is a quick look breakdown of the weeks top 15.

  • Number 1 - My People, My Homeland (1 weeks)
  • Highest debut - My People, My Homeland (@1)
  • Longest run - Onward (30 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - Tenet ($307,100,000)

Here is a breakdown of the top 5 movies globally at the box office 2nd - 4th October 2020.

My People, My Homeland

The follow up to My People, My Country land on the Chinese box office at number 1 and hence lands on the global box office at the top with a weekend gross of $157.5 Million on its debut.

The movie directed by a whole host of directors and if it does as well at the previous movie could take near to $500 Million.

Legend Of Deification

Jiang Ziya: Legend Of Deification

Called Jiang Ziya this animated fantasy tale hit the number 2 spot in China on its release being narrowly beaten by My People, My Country, but still the Teng Cheng and Li Wei directed movie took $151.7 Million to debut second globally.


Falling to number 3 this weekend as the Christopher Nolan movie starts to slow down across the globe, this weekend it took $14.2 Million.

This pushes the movies total gross after 6 weeks to $307.1 Million.

The New Mutants

Disneys mutant movie goes back into the top 5 this weekend taking $1.95 Million at number 4.

This pushes the movies total global gross to $42.1 Million after 7 weeks of release.

Hocus Pocus

The Halloween favourite gets a re-release in America, where it debuted at number 2, and makes its global debut at number 5 with $1.95 Million, 27 years after the movie first debuted.

The Todd Philips directe movie Joker continues its run at the top film across the world as it expands to more countries while the top 5 is relatively unchanged with the new animated movie The Addams Family coming in at number 4 as the highest new film.


Starring Joaquin Phoenix as the psychotic title character the controversial film has done far better than expected and this week expands its country count to 80 and takes $178.7 Million.

The film did incredibly well with ticket sales over the week and its total gross is now at $543.9 Million after 2 weeks of release and a $1 Billion total does not seem unlikely now.

Gemini Man

The Ang Lee directed movie expands its country count this week to 54 but can't beat Joker on the box office as it take $51 Million over the weekend from 54 territories.

This takes the film total global gross to $59.5 Million after 2 weeks of release.

The Captain

The Chinese language film falls to number 3 this week with a weekend gross of $33.4 Million from just 6 countries.

The film has taken an incredible $340.9 Million after 2 weeks of release.

The Addams Family

The Addams Family

MGM bring us a new take on the 1960's TV show this week which enters the box office at number 4 with $30.2 Million, but this is from a single country of release.

The film goes wide over the coming weeks across the rest of the globe where we should see the film climb the box office.

My People, My Country

The series of short stories brought together to create one movie falls to number 5 this week with $23 Million from 10 countries, the film has an incredible total gross now of $357.4 Million after just 2 weeks.

Joker makes its global debut at the top of the box office with little in the way of competition while there are a trio of Chinese films which make their way into the top 5 as they expand to more countries.


With good word of mouth the Joaquin Phoenix starring movie has smashed the global box office on its debut weekend with a gross of $234 Million from 74 countries.

This is higher than expected and the good word of mouth for the movie should allow it to be one of the biggest October hits, and certainly one of the biggest DC films.

My People, My Country

The Chinese film which is a collection of 7 shot stories from different directors is available in 8 territories and it enters the global box office at number 2 with a weekend gross of $100.6 Million.

The film has been on release since 1st October (last Tuesday) and its total global gross is already $286.9 Million.

The film was released at the start of the week and has a total global gross of $250.4 Million.


Dreamworks animated film has done well but is now falling fast and this week is at number 4 with a weekend gross of $36.6 Million from $46 countries.

This puts the film total gross at $76.3 Million after 2 weeks of release.

The Climbers

Another true life Chinese drama hits the box office at number 5 this week with a weekend gross of $30 Million from 3 countries.

Including previews this puts the films total global gross at $106.6 Million.
