With the first quarter of the year over and most of the cinemas closed across the US it a good time to pause for a moment and take a look at the top film during the first 3 months of 2020.

Bad Boys For Life

Twenty five years after the first teaming of Will Smith and Martin Lawrence first hit cinemas the third film in the buddy cop movie beats all expectations.

The movie was a mega smash at US box office with a total gross of $204 Million, and it was still at cinemas before the close down.


The movie was the hot tip to sweep the Oscars this year before everyone decided Parasite was the better film, but it didn't hurt Sam Mandes War Drama at the box office.

The movie was still a hit and pulled in a very good $158 Million at the US box office.

Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker

Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker

Despite getting a very mixed reaction from the Star Wars hard core, the much hailed end of the saga movie still pulled in the audiences with over $500 Million in the US box office in total.

In 2020 the movie took and impressive $153 Million.

Sonic The Hedgehog

Despite the early signs suggest this would be a flop the redesign of the main character Sonic pushed it to a $145 Million US gross.

Jumanji: The Next Level

Dwayne Johnsons sequel to the smash hit Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle didn't quite hit the same note but it was still a smash hit taking $141 Million in 2020, it has taken $316 Million in total.

Birds Of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn)

Warner Bros. were maybe expecting a bit more from the Harley Quinn movie but it still managed a quite respectable $84 Million, no flop but no smash hit.

Little Women

Greta Gerwig's adaptation of the classic novel was praised by critics and audiences alike and took $78 Million in the first quarter of 2020 in the US, it has taken $108 Million in total.


This Robert Downey Jr. vehicle was never going to reach the heights of anything with Iron Man in but the film still did better than expected considering the bad reviews, it took $77 Million.

The Invisible Man

The Invisible Man

Just creeping in before the American coronavirus shutdown the Universal monster movie took a very respectable $64 Million, its box office run was cut short and the movie is now available on streaming services.

The Call Of The Wild

Harrison Ford went back to nature for this down to earth movie which held its own at the box office with a $62 Million total gross, again the movie was still doing well when cinemas closed their doors.

A new Pixar film is always something to watch closely on the box office and this week with the release of Onward the movie hits the top of the US box office but the figures are lower than expect, while The Way Back starring Ben Affleck also gets a high new entry in the top 5.


With the current spread of the Coronavirus hitting the US the box office was overall lower than it could have been, and despite getting good reviews the new Disney/Pixar movie hit the top with $40 Million over the weekend.

This is certainly on the lower end of a Pixar movie, but those who travel to a movie theatre enjoyed the movie.

Looking forward the road might be tough and the film could end up with a smaller gross despite the movies popularity.

The Invisible Man

As expected the Universal modern monster movie fell to number 2 this week with $15.1 Million over the weekend.

This brings the films total US gross to $52.6 Million after 2 weeks of release.

The Way Back

The Way Back

Landing as number 3 this weekend is the new film starring Ben Affleck and directed by Gavin O'Connor which grosses $8.5 Million over its debut.

Sonic The Hedgehog

Falling to number 4 after 4 weeks of release is the video game adaptation which takes $8 Million taking its total to a very good $140.8 Million.

The Call Of The Wild

Harrison Ford stars in the movie at number 5 with a weekend gross of $7 Million taking the films total gross ot $57.4 Million after 3 weeks of release.


The Oscar winning film spends its 21st weekend on the box office making it the film with the longest run, its total gross is $52.8 Million.

Jumanji: The Next Level

The film with the highest total gross this week sits at number 12 with $315.8 Million after 13 weeks.

Pixar hit the top of the global box office once again with their new movie Onward which knocks The Invisible Man off the top meaning it spends just a week at the summit, meanwhile The Way Back with Ben Affleck makes a new entry at 5.


Pixar bring to the world a brand new story in the shape of this fantasy tale of two brothers looking to bring their father back for 24 hours.

The movie takes a very respectable $68 Million globally on its debut from 48 countries, this is no Toy Story but the Pixar name has brought in a good audience.

Also worth taking into to consideration is the global threat of the coronavirus which is keeping people away from movie theatres across the globe.

The Invisible Man

Falling from the top after a single week is the monster movie starring Elisabeth Moss which takes $35.4 Million from 66 countries.

This pushes the movies total gross to $98.2 Million, it will go over $100 Million in the next few days.
