With half the country still in lockdown, there is not a lot of action in the cinema front. Still top of the list at the box office this week is Walt Disney’s Free Guy with $2.66 million after two weeks.

The Suicide Squad continues to sag with $4.11 million in three weeks, down another 48%.

Universal put out Respect, the feature film about Arethra Franklin, which would normally link several niche audiences, but it was only on 140 screens and made $343,000.
