Sept. 28 (UPI) — “Tenet” is the No. 1 movie in North America for a fourth week, earning an additional $3.4 million in receipts, BoxOfficeMojo.com announced Sunday.

Coming in at No. 2 is “The New Mutants” with $1.1 million, followed by “Unhinged” at No. 3 with $1 million, “Star Wars: Episode V — The Empire Strikes Back” at No. 4 with $910,000 and “Infidel” at No. 5 with $745,000.

Rounding out the top tier are “The Broken Hearts Gallery” at No. 6 with $470,000, “Shortcut” at No. 7 with $305,000, “The Last Shift” at No. 8 with $235,000, “Kajillionaire” at No. 9 with $215,000 and “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run” at No. 10 with $140,000.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, most new movie debuts have been delayed until next year, with some U.S. theatrical releases, such as “Mulan,” skipped altogether in favor of at-home, streaming-service premieres.

Theaters throughout the United States and Canada were closed for months in keeping with social-distancing practices intended to slow the spread of the virus.

They recently began opening their doors; however, attendance has been low with few new movies to entice audience members.

On March 8, the North American box office take was about $100 million.
