Undoubtedly one of the greatest movies ever made. It’s such a shame that it received no Oscar nominations.

US box office top 5 breakdown weekend 21st - 23rd May 2021

Spiral: From the Book of Saw

After making its debut at the top of the US box office last weekend the Saw sequel movie starring Chris Rock remains there for a second weekend with $4.55 Millon, a 55% drop.

This brings the horror movies total US gross to $15.8 Million after 10 days of release.

Wrath of Man

Guy Ritchies latest directorial outing sits at number 2 this weekend with a weekend gross of $2.9 Million, down just 21% from last weekend.

This brings the Jason Statham starring movies total US gross to $18.8 Million after 3 weeks of release.

Those Who Wish Me Dead

The Angelina Jolie starring movie remains at number 3 this weekend with a gross of $1.8 Million, a 35% drop from last weekend taking its total gross to $5.5 Million after 2 weeks of release.

Raya and the Last Dragon

Now on its 13th weekend of release the Disney animated fantasy jumps back up the box office to number 4 with a gross of $1.6 Million, a very slim 2% drop from last weekend.

The movie has now taken an excellent $48 Million over its box office run and is sure to hit $50 Million by next weekend.

Godzilla Vs. Kong

Another movie going back up the box office is the monster battle which this week takes $1.4 Million, a slim 6% drop from last weekend giving the movie a total gross of $96 Million over 8 weeks and looking the $100 Million milestone in the face.

The US box office is having the quietest November in many years and this weekend an all new top 4 has Midway topping the chart on its debut albeit with one of the lowest takes for a top film, last weeks number 1, Terminator: Dark Fate, fell to number 5 on its second weekend.


Directed by Roland Emmerich the World Way II drama hits the top of the US box office with a very low for America $6.4 Million.

The film has performed better than expected for the studio and with little in the way of positive reviews once the late November and December big hitters are released the film will disappear quickly.

Doctor Sleep

Not performing as expected the sequel to 1980's The Shining enters the US box office with $5.2 Million.

With Halloween well out of the way and a busy period coming this will make its way onto home video quite quickly and unfortunately will slip out of the box office.

Last Christmas

A lot of publicity has hit this Christmas hit and the new film from director Paul Feig lands at number 3 this weekend with a gross of $4 Million.

The movie is being heavily publicised for its use of music from Wham! and the late George Micheal, especially the track Last Christmas which the film shares a title, this could see a boost more towards Christmas itself but it may as easily burn out quickly.

Playing With Fire

Starring John Cena a former WWE star the makers of this film must be looking for the kind of success that Dwayne Johnson has had but the film lands at number 4 this week with $3.5 Million.

Terminator: Dark Fate

There is no denying that the new Terminator movie, which had large expectations, simply hasn't re-ignited the once mighty franchise despite bringing back Linda Hamilton.

The film falls this week to number 5 with a weekend gross of $2.8 Million with a total gross in America now $40.4 Million.

The movie is falling fast and it will be lucky if it gets to $100 Million at the US market.


The DC Villain movie falls out of the top 5 this weekend but its the highest total grossing movie on the US top 10 with an amazing $306.8 Million after 6 weeks of release.

Terminator: Dark Fate manages to stay at the top of the global box office this weekend despite a very strong challenge from new film Midway which made its debut at number 2.

Terminator: Dark Fate

The box office figures for the latest Terminator movie have not been anywhere near what the film makers would have wanted, but the movie does manage a second weekend at the top of the global box office with $40.7 Million from 54 countries.

This pushes the films total global gross to $199.3 Million, and with the film loosing audiences around the world this will end up as the lowest grossing sequel of the Terminator series, and maybe mark the end.


Making its box office debut at number 2 is the Roland Emmerich directed World War II drama which narrowly misses out on the top spot with $39 Million from 21 countries.

The film has mixed reviews across the board and a short stay seems like especially as we his a very busy December with some big movie releases.


The DC Villain movie which has far passed all expectation is getting close to the magical $1 Billion mark at the global box office.

This weekend it is at number 3 and takes $29.5 Million from a still massively wide 80 countries which puts its total global gross at $984.6 Million, it will bet to $1 Billion by next weekend.

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil

Disney's autumn sequel movie moves down to 4 with a slim drop and takes $27.9 Million for the weekend pushing its total gross to $430.3 Million.

Doctor Sleep

The sequel to The Shining has not done as well as expected and this week falls to 5 with $27.1 Million from 69 countries pushing the total global gross to $34.1 Million.

Doctor Sleep is given a 15 age rating by the BBFC in the UK.

The long awaited sequel to the Shining, Doctor Sleep is again based on a novel by Stephen King.

Stephen King himself has given his praise of the film, something he never did for The Shining, so things are off to a good start.

Starring Ewan McGregor and Rebecca Ferguson the film has been given a 15 certificate for strong bloody violence, gore, horror, threat, language and it has a runtime of 151 minutes (2 hours and 31 minutes_, the film was passed uncut.
