Sony Pictures’ web-slinging juggernaut Spider-Man: No Way Home swept the No. 1 position at the North American box office, generating another $11 million in projected revenue across 3,675 screens through Jan. 30. The third Marvel superhero actioner starring Tom Holland as “Spider-Man” has reached $735 million in domestic ticket sales after seven weekends — and is just $25 million behind No. 3 all-time domestic placeholder Avatar (2009) from director James Cameron. That film holds the No. 1 all-time global box office record at more than $2.8 billion.
No Way Home easily bested Paramount Pictures’ Scream, which generated another $7.3 million across 3,518 screens to bring its domestic tally above $62 million. Universal Pictures’ Sing 2 finished third on the weekend with $4.8 million across 3,450 screens. The animated sequel has sold more than $134 million in tickets since its late-December release — the highest for a movie during the pandemic.
Universal’s faith-based Redeeming Love sold $1.85 million worth of tickets across 1,963 screens for the No. 4 spot, in what has been a slow January (and without SVOD competition) at the box office.
