A new trailer has been released by Sony for the next James Bond 007 movie No Time To Die starring Daniel Craig.

The new trailer comes a couple of months before the much delayed movie and includes some new footage from the much anticipated movie.

What is more interesting about this trailer, intended for the American audience, is that it looks as all the Daniel Craig Bond movie as one story and calls this the last installment.

In fact the first part of the trailer is like a condensed best of for Daniel Craig in the role.

The trailer gives away little of the story but there are some nice action shots in the trailer, the movie is out in the US on 8th October but in Europe and the UK you can see it on September 30th.

The big screen adaptation of Wicked has been on the cards for a while now, but hit a block when director Stephen Daldry stepped down, now Crazy Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu has stepped in.

The American director has just completed the movie In The Heights, a musical which will hit cinemas, hopefully, later in 2021 after release delays.

The sequel to Crazy Rich Asians, China Rich Girlfriend might also be on his schedule which will be film back to back with the third film Rich People Problems although rumours suggest Chu won't direct.

The film version of the hit musical about the witches of Oz has been in the works for a while, it should have hit cinemas in December of 2019, the same time as another musical adaptation hit, Cats!

No release date or cast has been given yet, and with COVID still a global issue it could be a couple of years before we see it, IMDB are showing a 22nd December 2021 which seems a but tight, maybe 2022 seems more likely?

As you would expect the saviour of cinema is still the top movie of the week, and unlike last weekend Warner Bros. have released more accurate figures for the weekend gross this time.

Last weekend Warner Bros. only released the total gross for the movie, which included 7 days extra of Canadian release and preview figures for the American release, although to be honest this is nothing new!

Further down the box office list the top 3 movies stay the same while The Broken Hearts Gallery is the top new movie of the weekend and all but 1 of the top 5 grosses over a million for the period.

Here is a rundown of the top 5 movies in North America 11th - 13th September 2020.

Tenet

Christopher Nolan's much praised, and much disliked, movie spends a second weekend at number 1 with a gross of $6.7 Million, which when compared with last weekends real figure of $9.5 Million as released by Warner Bros. this isn't too bad a drop.

This of course is under unusual circumstances as many cinemas in America are still closed and many more people still dont want to go to the cinema due to health concerns, couple this with the limited capacity and you get a clear picture of how the grosses are working in the current climate.

This has though pushed the movies total North American gross to $29.5 Million over its 2 weekends of release.

The New Mutants

Hanging on in second place is Disney's mutant movie which this week takes $2.09 Million in the US.

The movie has a total gross of $15.3 Million after 3 weeks of release.

Unhinged

The Russel Crowe starring movie remains at number 3 taking $1.5 Million over the weekend which gives it a 5 week total gross of $13.8 Million.

The Broken Hearts Gallery

Highest new movie of the weekend lans at number 4 and is Natalie Krinsky directorial debut.

The movie takes $1.1 Million on its debut, which is perhaps a little lower than expected especially in the current climate and the romantic escapism the movie offers.

Bill & Ted Face the Music

The third Bill And Ted movie falls to number 5 this weekend with $292.6K bringing its 3 week box office total to $2.8 Million.

This has been a real shame for the movie which got a release on streaming the same time as a theatrical release and will have basically destroyed its potential box office gross.

As is well documents the COVID-19 pandemic and its devastating effect on the world has been the story of the summer, and in fact the year, and it has had the biggest impact on the box office ever.

Cinemas across the globe started closing down in the middle of March and didn't open again in the UK until early July, so the summer box office period of May till early September has been greatly effected.

Most of the Spring and Summer potential blockbusters got their release dates moved, at least once, including Mulan, A Quiet Place Part II, Tenet and Ghostbusters: Afterlife and some of them got a direct to VOD release, including Mulan!

Tenet did finally get a cinema release at the tale end of August and was just about the biggest film of the summer and when the movie theatres finally opened the box office continued where it left off with the Pixar movie Onward still at the top.

What you will also see in the list of top 10 movies for the summer is evidence that movie theatres used old catalogue titles to try and entice movie goers back hence Jurassic Park and Dirty Dancing showing up.

Here is a breakdown of the top 5 film of the summer box office 2020.

Tenet

Christopher Nolan potential big summer blockbuster had its difficulties on its way to the box office but it finally got a release on 28th August and was hailed as the saviour of the cinema.

The movie had a good start to its box office career and took £5.3 Million on its debut and took £10 Million over the Summer period.

In comparison the top film of summer 2019 was the The Lion King remake which took over £71 Million.

Onward

Disney's Pixar movie Onward was the top film on weekend of 13th March when cinemas closed and when they came back it was still the top movie, it has remained in the top 3 for every UK box office since.

Over the summer the movie took was has tuned out to be quite an impressive £1.6 Million.

Unhinged

After the top 2 potential blockbusters we start to get movies which would not have been big movies, but due to the lack of big blockbusters they got a lot of exposure, maybe still not taking as much as they would have done but having good box office runs.

This Russell Crowe movie was the first new movie to get released after the closures and benefitted from that, it has a big star name and got a decent amount of hype and exposure.

The movie took £1.4 Million over the summer period.

100 Wolf

Another movie which has had a decent box office run that would not have without the lack of blockbusters is director Alexs Stadermann likeable animation which took just over a Million pound over the summer.

Trolls World Tour

Perhaps the most controversial movie of the summer, the sequel movie was at the start of the summer the biggest movie to go direct to VOD that would have had a good box office run.

The cinema chains, especially the American company AMC which owns the ODEON chain in the UK objected to this move, this was at a time when the world didn't know how long the closures would last.

Despite the release onto VOD the movie still took a very respectable £745K at the UK box office, this is no where near tens of million it has taken on digital.

  1. Tenet - £10,006,540
  2. Onward - £1,666,470
  3. Unhinged - £1,436,243
  4. 100% Wolf - £1,026,699
  5. Trolls World Tour - £754,093
  6. The New Mutants - £686,407
  7. Pinocchio - £685,332
  8. Dirty Dancing - £541,863
  9. Inception - £432,449
  10. Jurassic Park - £347,981

Still no sign of the US closedown ending anytime soon so the American box office is once more relying on mainly drive-in movie theatres for its figures.

This week the Dave Franco directed The Rental tops the box office with ease and is the widest release since the pandemic closed 99% of movie theatres.

Here is a rundown of the top 5 box office films in America 24th - 26th July 2020.

The Rental

Directed by Dave Franco this horror suspense movie takes the top spot with ease, last weeks Beauty And The Beast live action doesn't even feature on this week chart.

The movie takes $403.8K over its debut weekend giving the actor turned director a sizeable hit even under these strange circumstances.

The Karate Kid

Re-released movies are going to be a mainstay of the box office for the foreseeable future as studios keep on changing their release schedule and this week this 1984 classic is a 'new' entry at number 2.

The Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita starring movie takes $225K over the weekend with a total gross since release of $91 Million.

The Goonies

Climbing from last weeks number 5 to 3 is this old Richard Donner favourite which takes $176K over the weekend pushing its total in the US to $62.5 Million.

Jurassic Park

Steven Spielberg classic Dinosaur movie for 1993 stays put at 4 this week with $173K, the films has now taken $403.5 Million wince its release.

The Big Ugly

Highest new film of the week with this Scott Wiper directed movie which takes a modest $150K over the weekend.

The movie starrs among other Vinnie Jones and Ron Perlman.
