Click here to read the full article.
EXCLUSIVE: Steven Spielberg's 1993 film Jurassic Park was number 1 for the fourth time in its release history last weekend when cinemas tried to give the impression of a typically big cinema weekend, Father's Day, during the COVID-19 pandemic.
While in 2020, like Universal / Dreamworks Animation's Trolls World Tour, 9 weekends were held at a still desperate box office (with the exception of last weekend when The Invisible Man returned to the top of the table), catalog titles dominated the majority of the weekend with Universal's Jurassic Park, which earns $ 517.6,000 at 230 locations, and the studio's Jaws, which earns $ 516.3,000 at 187 locations. Weekend # 1 and 2, respectively, are improvements over last weekend's Invisible Man at $ 383,000 and the Trolls World Tour at $ 275.7,000.

Jurassic Park was number 1 at the box office for the first three weekends after the opening on June 11, 1993. There was a reissue of the film in 2013, and this weekend's release of April 5-7 brought the $ 18.6 million fourth place. This reissue contributed $ 45.3 million to the gross image of $ 404.3 million.
Although the exhibition area is gradually increasing, last weekend up to around 1,100 cinemas +112 cinemas with around 300 drive-ins continued to drive the business of the weekend, with 160 of the 201 most successful cinemas being drive-ins to a sector cash report received from Deadline . Ford Wyoming Drive-in in Dearborn, MI, was the highest-earning venue at $ 127.3,000, followed by Cine-Drive in Saint Eustache, Quebec at $ 105.4,000, Sacramento 6 at $ 71.2,000, and the Mission Tikki 4 in Montclair, CA at $ 61.8,000 and the Aut-o-rama Twin Drive-In at North Ridgeville, OH at $ 60.1,000.
Of the hardtop multiplexes opened, megaplex theaters were highest in the South Jordan District, UT ($ 14.6,000), followed by Palladium 19 in Santa Antonio, TX ($ 11.2,000). The numbers just slide from there and are even more depressing. For example, Cinemark reopened three venues on Friday for unspectacular weekend results: the chain's locations Dallas 17 ($ 855), West Plano 20 ($ 1.5,000) and North McKinney ($ 1,000). Last weekend should again be a test drive for Cinemark in its COVID-19 security operations before it reopens on July 3rd, 10th and 17th, and the circuit will play mostly titles from earlier this year like Sonic the Hedgehog. Invisible Man and The Hunt as well as catalog titles like Wonder Woman, Jaws, Back to the Future, Get Out and The Matrix.
According to a Comscore report today, the states with the most open theaters are Texas (82), Ohio (56), Iowa (47), Florida (39), Minnesota (39), Indiana (37), Pennsylvania (34), Kansas (28), Tennessee (28) and Wisconsin (26).
Of the new titles that hit the top 10 this weekend, Atlas Entertainments Horror Film Followed grossed $ 8 127.2,000 at 42 locations. Directed by Antoine Le with Sam Valentine, Tim Drier, Karan Sagoo, John Savage and Blanca Blanco, Followed follows a controversial social media influencer who remains in a cursed hotel with frightening results just to attract more subscribers.
