The saviour of cinema finally gets a US release and in the process of course tops the box office and with a half decent gross, although Warner Bros. are not giving daily totals for the movie and this total is from the movies initial release and takes in 11 days of release data!

With Tenet easily topping the box office with an 11 day opening weekend! The New Mutants falls to number 2 but still with a half decent second weekend gross while many holdovers fill up the other places on the top 5.

Remember that cinemas in the US are still largely closed, and where there are places open they are strictly under limited capacity allowing for social distancing and many people are still not comfortable sitting in a dark room for 2+ hours with total strangers.

Here is a breakdown of this weeks top 5 movies in the US 4th - 6th September 2020.


Christopher Nolans latest directorial movie has had a troubled time making its way to movie theatres but after a couple of delays it has been released into a troubled marketplace where many cinemas in America are still closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This hasn't stopped everyone from enjoying the movie billed as the saviour of cinema as the movie makes its debut in the US to a reported weekend gross of $20.2 Million.

The movie is in this for the long stay and will no doubt encourage people to movie theatres in the coming weeks and months, although a move to VOD could be on the cards sooner rather than later.

The New Mutants

The latest mutant movie from the X-Men universe falls to number 2 this weekend with a gross of $3.03 Million, better than would have been expected from the critically panned film.

This pushes the movies total gross in the US to $11.7 Million after 2 weeks of release.


Russell Crowes latest movie may not have made the money expected but it has had a good chart run and this week is at number 3 with $1.8 Million.

This takes the films total gross to $11.4 Million after 4 weeks of release.

Bill and Ted Face the Music

The movie hit VOD at the same time at its theatrical release and after a top 3 entry last weekend falls to 4 this week with $773.1K pushing its total theatrical gross to $2.3 Million after 2 weeks.

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge On the Run

The animated movie is still only on release in Canada and this week climbs to number 5 with $345K taking its 4 week gross to $3.3 Million.

Unhinged takes the honor as being the first 'wide' release of the pandemic era as the Russell Crowe movie goes to the top of the box office knocking SpongeBob into second place.

Elsewhere on the chart Words On Bathroom Walls is the top new film while Cut Throat City is also new inside the top 5.
