In its third weekend of release, Sony Pictures’ latest webslinger installment, Spider-Man: No Way Home, continued its box office domination, topping $52 million in projected New Year’s weekend revenue, and $609 million in projected North American ticket sales through Jan. 2.
The third movie in the franchise with Tom Holland playing Peter Parker’s alter ego ended 2021 as the top-grossing theatrical release globally with more than $1.2 billion in revenue. It now ranks as the 10th highest domestic release in history.
Notably, Spider-Man easily topped runner-up Disney/Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which, until just 18 days ago, was the top-grossing movie in the U.S. with $224 million.
Among other box office releases, Universal/Illumination’s Sing 2 generated $19.6 million across 3,892 screens, to bring its two-weekend haul to $40 million. Disney/20th Century Studios’ The King’s Man finished No. 3 with $4.5 million across 3,180 theaters, and $47.8 million overall.
Lionsgate’s Kurt Warner NFL biopic American Underdog generated $3.9 million across 2,800 screens to put its total ticket sales around $15 million.
