Tenet topped the box office for the seventh successive weekend and it has now overtaken Bad Boys For Life to become the third biggest film released in 2020. It also holds the record for the longest run in the top spot in the last decade, having overtaken Joker’s six weeks at the top.

Terrifying British horror Saint Maud opened in second, while the re-release of the classic post-apocalyptic animation Akira came in third. After We Collided looks like being the perennial Jimmy White, never quite hitting the top spot after a long run in second and then dropping down the rankings, coming in fourth. Cats & Dogs: Paws Unite rounded out the top five and will be looking to October half term in a couple of weeks for its most fruitful period.

Outside of the top five, Miranda July’s Kajillionaire was the only other new entry in the top 10 in tenth. Comscore are reporting that there were 498 cinemas open in the UK, (down from 676 last weekend).
