Liam Neeson remains at the top of the US box office this weekend with the revenge thriller Honest Thief, in fact the top 3 movies remain the same as last week!

The highest new movie of the weekend is horror movie The Empty Man which makes its debut at number 4, also making a debut this week is Monsters Inc. re-release which enters at 7 and After We Collided which makes its debut at 8.

Here is the US box office Quickview.

  • Highest debut - The Empty Man (@4)
  • Longest run - Unhinged (11 weeks)
  • Highest total gross - Tenet ($52,500,000) (not including re-releases)

US top 5 box office breakdown 23rd - 25th October 2020.

Honest Thief

Liam Neeson stars in the revenge thriller which remains at the top of the US box office for a second weekend, the week taking $2.3 Million which is only a 36% drop from last weekend.

This pushes the total gross in the US to $7.4 Million on its second weekend, and with more and more cinemas starting to open it could be one of the bigger film to open during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The War With Grandpa

The Tim Hill directed comedy starring Robert De Niro remains at number 2 this week with $1.8 Million, only 25% down from last weekend.

The film has been out for 3 weeks now and has taken $9.7 Million since release.

The Empty Man

**UPDATE** With the release of the final weekend figures The Empty Man has taken just a little more than Tenet and so ended in third place rather than fourth.

Highest new movie of the week is the David Prior directed horror movie which lands at number 3 this weekend with $1.26 Million.

with Halloween next weekend the movie should have a strong second weekend but then the potential to drop off the chart is strong, although horror movies did shine during the pandemic cinema shutdown when only drive-in theatres were open.

Tenet

Warner Bros. have admitted that their 'savour of cinema' movie was actually a failure and just maybe they opened the movie too soon, regardless of that the movie takes $1.3 Million this weekend, a drop of only 19%.

The movie has been on the box office for 8 weeks now and is by far the highest grossing movie since cinemas closed in March with $52.5 Million, as a side note Warner Bros. have been cagy about the movies box office figures.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Disney's re-release of their Henry Selick directed classic falls to number 5 this weekend with $577,000, a 57% drop, giving the movie a total gross of $76.9 Million since its 1994 release.

Doctor Sleep is a follow up to Stephen Kings The Shining and this year director Mike Flanagan takes us on that journey, and today we get the first trailer.

The film is based on the 2013 novel of the same name, and although not a direct sequel the trailer shows us that is will use Stanley Kubrick's Overlook Hotel from The Shining for many scenes.

The film stars Ewan McGregor as Danny Torrance, who is now grown up, as he battles alcoholism but cant escape the events from his life or gift.

Set for release in November check out the trailer below.
