DCM’s Weekly Cinemagoing round-up: Tenet makes it three in a row…

    Author Tom Linay

Tenet topped the box office for the third successive weekend and is now the fifth biggest film released in 2020, having just overtaken Guy Ritchie’s The Gentleman and the Oscar Best Picture winner, Parasite.

One of the biggest success stories of the last few months, After We Collided came in second, increasing on last weekend’s total by 152% and delivering an average occupancy of over 17. K-Pop sensations BTS took third with their latest tour film, Break The Silence: The Movie, while The New Mutants fell to fourth. Onward was in the top five once again and has been every possible weekend since early March.

Outside of the top five, teen-comedy The Broken Hearts Gallery was a new entry in sixth and Polish crime-drama Petla was a new entry in seventh.

Comscore are reporting that there were 675 cinemas open in the UK and Ireland this past weekend (up from 664 last weekend), with 598 of them in the  UK (up from 588).

Next Weekend

Bill And Ted Face The Music is the third film in the much loved comedy series. Once told they'd save the universe during a time-traveling adventure, two would-be rockers from San Dimas, California find themselves as middle-aged dads still trying to crank out a hit song and fulfil their destiny.

Rocks is a British drama about a young teenage girl who finds herself struggling to take care of herself and her younger brother after being abandoned by their single mother with no choice but to live out on the streets. It's one of the best films of the year.
