With many new movies coming out over the coming weeks and months that have been delayed and hence there is a big appetite for will effect the future performance for the movie but its a good start and should de well for the next few weeks.

After a re-release in China the 2009 James Cameron movie Avatar has once again become the top grossing movie of all time after it was knocked down to second place by Avengers: Endgame in 2019.
The 3D spectacular became the top grossing movie of all time on its initial release, replacing another James Cameron directed movie Titanic, which had been there for 10 years.
Avatar was also at the top for 10 years before being replaced by Avengers: Endgame which narrowly grossed more than the $2.78 Billion Avatar took with a $2.79 Billion global gross.
It was clear that all it was going to take was a successful re-release of the Avatar movie to reclaim the top, and in a period of time when studios are being cautious about releasing new movies why not release a film which has already made its money?
The real big winner here is Disney, they of course own the Marvel Universe movies for which Avengers: Endgame is one and since the 20th Century Fox acquisition in 2019/2020 they also own the Avatar franchise, so are Disney now going to re-release the Avengers movie?
James Cameron is currently working on 4 more Avatar movies and judging from this re-release the fan base is still there and hence the future for the franchise looks promising, maybe we'll get the first $3 Billion movie once the pandemic is out of the way?

It's the last chart of 2020 and after many delays this year Wonder Woman 1984 makes its debut in cinemas and tops the US box office.
Also making high debuts over the festive holiday are Tom Hanks in News Of The World and Carey Mulligan in Promising Young Woman, both films are getting Oscar attention.

This weeks top 5 US box office breakdown 25th - 27th December 2020.
After being delayed a number of times due to cinema closures forced on by the COVID-19 pandemic the Wonder Woman sequel directed by Patty Jenkins finally got a release in cinemas on Christmas day, it also got a release on HBO Max the same day.
With this in mind the movie has turned into a success and with a total opening weekend of $16.7 Million it is the bigest opening since cinemas closed.
The future then looks good for the superhero movie, and with only 10% of US homes having HBO Max for many it might be the only way to watch the film.
Tom Hanks stars in the new movie from director Paul Greengrass which this week makes its debut at number 2 with $2.4 Million.
Unlike the Wonder Woman movie it is only available to see in cinemas and most like will be for the next few weeks.
The animated sequel falls to number 2 this week with a weekend gross of $1.7 Million, 14% down from last week.
This puts the movies total gross at $30 Million after 5 weeks of release and is the second best movie during the pandemic.
After making its debut at the top of the box office last weekend the Paul W.S. Anderson directed movie fallt hard to number 4 this weekend with $1.12 Million, 49% down from last week.
The movie has taken $4.21 Million after 2 weeks of release.
Finally on the top 5 is director Emerald Fennell new movie which stars Carey Mulligan in what is being touted as an Oscar worthy performance.
The film took $680,000 on its debut week of release and entered at number 5.
27th October 2020
There were a number of new releases at UK cinemas last weekend and this is very nicely reflected on this weeks box office with 6 new movies entering the top 10.
The list is headed up by the animated sequel Two By Two: Overboard! which makes its debut at the top, and in doing so brings to an ends the 8 week run of Tenet.
This weeks top 5 alone has 4 movies making their debut, then further down the box office is All My Life which makes its debut at number 9 and Max Winslow And The House Of Secrets which enters at number 10.
Also worthy of note, this weeks top 15 did far bette than last week with the combined gross nearly £1.5 Million.
Here is the top 15 box office Quickview.
Here is a breakdown of the UK box office top 5 23rd - 25th October 2020.
Makings its debut at the top of the box office is the animated sequel to Two By Two from 2015 which took £566,871 on its debut.
The follow up takes £329.265 on its debut weekend, which in the current COVID-19 climate of actually a good debut, the half term holiday will have helped.
Liam Neeson brings his latest revenge thriller to the big screen and makes a debut at number 2 with £254,267.
It is worth noting that although Two By Two: Overboard! is the top film this is with previews and over the 3 day weekend this would have been the top movie.
Given the half term week I would have thought this new adaptation of Frances Hodgson Burnett's novel would have done better but a debut at 3 with £154,087 is still good.
The original adaptation of the novel was in 1994 and starred Maggie Smith and was directed by Agnieszka Holland, it took over £3 Million at the box office.
Despite the fact that Warner Bros. has not been pleased with the performance of this movie it spent 8 weeks at the top and only on its 9th weekend of release falls to number 4 with £134,968, 28% down from last weekend.
The movie is the 5th hight grossing movie of 2020 with £17.7 Million so far.
This British heist movie directed by Barnaby Thompson lands on the chart at number 5 this week with £116,517.
It has had good reviews from critics so the future could be good for the movie and a long chart run possible.

When Bill & Ted Face The Music was changed from a theatrical release to a joint VOD release in the US it was feared the rest of the world would follow, but today its announced that it will get a UK cinema release in 23rd September.
UK cinemas have been slowly re-opening with safety precaution for COVID-19 over the last few weeks, and with the release in the next couple of weeks for Tenet movie distributers are hoping it will rejuvenate the box office.

From reports people are still nervous about going to movie theatres especially as some members of the public are not adhering to safety precautions and not wearing masks, so if you go and see anything in the cinema please wear a mask.
Mulan is the other movie in contention at the moment, its going to Disney+ in the US in September but could easily get a theatrical release in the UK and other countries.
To whet your appetite for the new movie here is a clip from Twitter via IGN.
