‘Spider-Man’ Finds New ‘Way Home’ to Box Office Win

Sony Pictures’ enduring “Spider-Man” franchise kept its mojo for another weekend as Spider-Man: No Way Home reclaimed the North American box office mantle with an estimated $14.1 million in ticket sales through Jan. 23 across more than 3,705 screens in its sixth weekend of release.

The third “Spider-Man” movie featuring Tom Holland in the featured role has now generated $721 million in domestic ticket sales — fourth all-time behind Jim Cameron’s Avatar with $760 million, Disney/Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame ($858 million) and Disney/Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens with $936 million.

No Way Home is the sixth at all-time global box office with $1.69 billion in revenue.

The webslinger topped last weekend’s No. 1 box office slasher relaunch Scream, which tracked an estimated $12.4 million in ticket sales across more than 3,600 screens. Paramount Pictures’ fifth installment in the franchise features a new cast as well original stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette and Skeet Ulrich, and has topped $51 million in revenue after just two weeks.

Rounding out the podium is Universal Pictures’ enduring animated musical Sing 2, which generated an estimated $5.7 million across 4,400 screens. The movie has sold about $128 million tickets in North America, $241 million worldwide, to top Disney’s Encanto with $223 million and the studio’s PVOD star Croods: A New Age at $227 million.

Universal’s strong animated performance helped it ignore the debut of Redeeming Love, with the faith-based drama generating an estimated $3.7 million in revenue across more than 1,903 screens. The movie appears headed toward digital retail release as part of Universal’s shortened 17-day theatrical window for movies grossing less than $50 million at the domestic box office.
