News from around the web

This week was the first sign of things may be starting to get back to normal service on the cinema industry and Tom & Jerry: The Movie has the second biggest opening weekend since the spread of the pandemic forced the closure of cinemas a year ago.

There is little else going on this week but the coming months are starting to look better, New York cinemas have started to re-open with limited capacity and on the other side of America California will start to re-open cinema doors soon.

Of not this week is the small amount most films have dropped from last weekend, a sure sign that cinemas are starting to open up, and that people are starting to attend.

US box office Quickview

  • Number 1 - Tom & Jerry: The Movie (1st week)
  • Highest debut - Tom & Jerry: The Movie (@1)
  • Longest run - The War With Grandpa (21 weeks)

Here is the US box office top 5 breakdown 26th - 28th February 2021

Tom & Jerry: The Movie

Warner Bros. have by far been the studio leading to way during the last year as far as releases is concerned, Tenet and Wonder Woman 1984 didn't pay off as much as they had hoped but this live action version of the classic cartoon seems to have hit the spot.

Directed by Tim Story and starring Chloë Grace Moretz alongside animated versions of the famous cat and mouse the movie takes an incredible $14.11 Million on its opening weekend.

The movie is also available on HBO Max, but if it follows in the steps of fellow kid pic The Croods: A New Age it could be around a while.

Falling from its second spell at the top of the US box office the animated sequel takes $1.25 Million this weekend, down just 27% from last week.

This gives the movie a total gross of $52.43 Million after 14 weeks of release.

The Little Things

Falling to number 3 this week is the John Lee Hancock directed movie which takes $930,000 over the weekend, a drop of just 23%, the movie has taken a very good $12.91 Million over 5 weeks of release.

The movie has done well at the box office and after 3 weeks of release has taken $9.5 Million.

Todd Phillips directed Joked makes its box office debut at the top of the chart as it removes Downton Abbey after a 3 weeke spell while Judy manages a number 2 debut.


Starring Joaquin Phoenix the new villain movie from the DC Universe hits the top of the box office on its debut with an excellent £12.5 Million weekend.

This meakes the film the 57th top opening film in the UK ever, beating The Inbetweeners 2 and coming in behind The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1.

With such a big opening expect the films gross to be one of DC's better grosses and with good reviews and Oscar potential this movie could run well into next year.


Renée Zellweger gives what critics are calling an Oscar worthy performance in the bio-pic movie of Judy Garland which opens at number 2 with a very respectable £2 Million.

Again with good reviews and mentions of Oscars this Rupert Goold directed movie could have a very good run in the UK.

Downton Abbey

The British high class movie falls from the top to number 3 on its 4th weekend of release with £1.4 Million giving the film a £23.1 Million total, the film is now the 10th highest grossing of 2019.


The surprise film of the autumn falls to number 4 this weekend with £590,645 but the Lorene Scafaria directed movie had taken £6.1 Million in the UK.

Ad Astra

The Brad Pitt starring space drama falls to number 5 this weekend with £467,983 after 3 weeks of release, but the films £5.5 Million total is very respectable.

The Lion King

The British public can't get enough of Disney's animated remake and this week if the top total grossing movie on the box office with £75 Million, after 12 weeks of release it is still at number 6!

Toy Story 4

Also from Disney is the longest run on this weeks box office as the Pixar film notches up a 16th weekend, the film has taken £65 Million so far.

All change at the top of the US box office as Split surrenders its hold on the number 1 spot to the (sort of) follow up to The Lego Movie, The Lego Batman Movie.

After a three week spell at the top for Split the film falls down to number 4 this week as there are 3 new films entering in the top 3 slots.

The Batman Lego Movie takes $55.6 million on its opening weekend which is a little higher than expected for this movie but lower than The Lego Movie of 3 years ago.

Fifty Shades Darker opens at number 2 with $46 million, which can be considered good, but again it is far lower than the far higher anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey from 2 years ago.

Finally new at 3 if another sequel, John Wick Chapter 2 which opens to $30 million which is double that of the original John Wick movie.

Split takes $9.3 million on its fourth weekend and has now taken $112 million on its US box office run.

Highest total grossing movie on the US top 10 box office is Hidden Figures which has not taken $131 million over 8 weeks, the longest running film is Lion now on 12 weeks.
