US box office top 5 breakdown weekend 15th - 17th October 2021.

Halloween Kills

Halloween Kills

The long running movie series that started with the John Carpenter directed Halloween in 1979 has been a regular box office hit maker over the last 40+ years.

The latest sequel, which is part of a 'final' trilogy directed by David Gordon Green makes its debut at the top this weekend with a fantastic gross of $50.3 Million.

This marks the third movie in as many weeks to make its debut with a gross over $50 Millin since the start of the pandemic in March 2020, showing real signs that people are willing to go back to the cinema.

Whats just as impressive is that the movie which stars Jamie Lee Curtis is also available to stream without extra fee on Paramount+.

No Time To Die

The latest James Bond movie, and the last for Daniel Craig, falls to number 2 this weekend after making its debut at the top last week, with a gross of $24.2 Million, a large 57% drop over last week.

The movie isn't proving to be as big a hit in North America as it has in other parts of the world, and in the US after 10 days of release has grossed $99.5 Million, it will pass the $100 Million mark before next weekend.

The movie is to date the 9th top movie of 2021, but it has some very stiff competition in the coming months.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage

The superhero sequel movie falls to number 3 this weekend with $16.5 Million, a 48% drop over last week, which gives the movie a total US gross of $168 Million afer 3 weeks.

The movie is tracking very similar to the 2018 original Venom which ended up with $213 Million after 13 weeks.

This means the movie is the 4th top movie of 2021 and looking towards a $200 Million total, altohugh again with tough competition in the coming months that will take its audience away this could be a milestone too far.

The Addams Family 2

The animated sequel falls to 3 this weekend with $7.1 Million, a small 28% drop, giving the movie a total of $42 Million over 3 weeks of release.

The Last Duel

The Last Duel

The new movie directed by Ridley Scott and starring Matt Damon and Adam Driver lands, rather disappointingly at number 5 this weekend with a debut gross of $4.8 Million.
