Tom & Jerry: The Movie

Chaos Walking

The Doug Liman directed movie starring Tom Holland falls to number 4 this weekend with a gross of $1.92 Million, a 14% drop from last weekend.

Considering the bad reviews the movie got it has done surprisingly well and after 3 weeks of release it has grossed $9.69 Million.

The Croods: A New Age

Finally on the top 5 is the longest running movie of the chart which takes $620,000 over the weekend, which is incredibly a 13% increase on last weeks gross!

The movie has done amazingly well and after 17 weeks of release, all inside the top 5, it has taken $55.24 Million.

File this under, because its Friday! A YouTuber called Wulff Den have put the Christopher Nolan movie onto 5 Game Boy Advanced cartridges, and made the movie vaguely watchable.

In the video the guy explains why he did it, and how he did it, and from the video you could probably do the same yourself, but would you want to?

Wulff Den explains that the reason he did it was on a whim and because when the movie came out in 2020, in the middle of the pandemic, the director explained that the movie must be seen on the big screen, so he compressed the movie down to fit on a small screen, the GBA 5 inch screen!

As explained the reason why it has to be on 5 cartridges is because each can hold 30 minutes at watchable quality and the movie in almost exactly 2 hours and 30 minutes.

The video runs lower than the GBA resolution at 192 x 128 and it has 6 FPS (Frames Per Second), but its claimed that it is just about watchable!

GBA Tenet

This isn't for everyone and watching the video is probably enough, and besides you would have to flash your own roms, not hard but hard enough, we wont be seeing this on sale anytime soon but its an interesting side project for anyone with time on their hands!

Cinema attendance in the UK dropped by 75% to 44 million tickets sold in 2020 due to the pandemic closures and limited openings later in the year.

Things started off really well in the first 3 months of the year, with over 80% of the total happening between January and March.

The COVID-19 pandemic took hold in late March and as you expect things just collapsed after that with less than 10 Million tickets sold between March and December.


The industry suffered 3 closures during that time and unlike in countries like America there is no drive-in culture which in part has kept the industry ticking.

Just under £250 Million in tickets were sold in 2020, compared to £1.25 Billion in 2019 which amounted to 176 Million tickets.

The highest grossing movie of the year was the Sam Mandes directed 1917 which was released in January 2020 and took over £40 Million at the box office.

2021 has not got off to a good start and cinemas have been closed but with vaccines being administered fast and a drop in cases it is hoped UK cinemas will open soon and the country will slowly get back to normal.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife

With no big releases due until at least the second quarter of the year UK cinema goers are in for a busy end of year with film like No Time To Die and Ghostbusters: Afterlife set to be big hits.

With the box office chart on hold for the second time due to the lockdown in the UK we take a look at the video charts.

Fox Video's (Disney) film much delayed film from 2020 The New Mutants makes its debut at the top of the box office removing Tenet from a 3 week run at the top.

Also new is the Nicholas Cage action movie Jiu Jitsu which is new this week at number 5.

Here is a breakdown of the video charts week of 10th - 16th January 2021.

The New Mutants

Set in the X-Men universe this Marvel/20th Century Fox/Disney production has a troubled time getting a release date being moved around quite a bit before finally landing a UK release date of 4th September 2020.

It was a relatively big hit in the UK, especially considering cinemas has just re-opened and not to full capacity, but the movie made its debut at number 2 with £686,407 and went on to gross £1.5 Million.


The 'saviour of cinema' has spent the last 3 weeks at the top of the video chart but this week gives way to the Mutant movie.

Christopher Nolans mind bending movie took £17 Million in the UK August - September 2020 and is the highest grossing movie of the COVID-19 pandemic era.

The Witches~2020

Robert Zemeckis's adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl book skipped a theatrical release in favour of a direct to VOD release and after 4 weeks falls to number 3 on the video chart.

The Blackout~2019

This sci-fi action movie from Russia jumps from 10 to number 4 this week as the British viewing public look for something new and exciting to watch during a period of time when there are little new releases.

Jiu Jitsu

Jiu Jitsu

Starring Nicholas Cage this action movie skipped cinemas in the UK and makes its debut on the video chart at number 5 this week.
