1. SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME
Sony’s Spider-Man: No Way Home earned an estimated $81.5 million this weekend to comfortably lead the box office for the second successive weekend. The film did decline a large 69% from its opening weekend, in part from this weekend’s but usually films do during a big holiday weekend. It did cross the $400 million domestic mark this weekend and has made an impressive $467.3 million in just ten days of release.
The movie also took in an estimated $121.4 million from 61 international markets this weekend. That puts the film’s international total to $587.1 million and the global haul to $1.054 billion.
2. SING 2
Universal’s Sing 2 easily opened the best among the new comers with a second place earnings of $23.7 million. Counting from Wednesday, the film took in $41.1 million in its first five days.
Overseas, the animated sequel took in an additional $24.8 million, to bring its global absolute to $65.8 million so far.
3. THE MATRIX: RESURRECTIONS
The Matrix Resurrections started off with a very slow third place finish this weekend earning an estimated $12 million. The five day start for the film is just $22.5 million.
Abroad, however, The Matrix: Resurrections fared better, earning another $47.3 million to go with its domestic debut. The current global haul is $69.8 million for the film.
4. THE KINGS MAN
The King’s Man, with just under $6.4 million in its opening weekend and $10 million in its first five days started off very slow. Those numbers are well below the film’s already modest pre-release expectations.
The film added an additional $6.9 million abroad, bringing its global box-office total to $16.9 million.
5. AMERICAN UNDERDOG
In fifth place was Lionsgate’s American Underdog which earned $6.2 million in its opening weekend. The film is doing well with both faith-based audiences and sports fans alike and might have a strong chance to hold up going forward.
