Weekend Box Office Enters ‘Uncharted’ Waters

With just three domestic theatrical releases topping $10 million in their box office debuts, the 2022 North American exhibition business is off to a rocky start. Sony Pictures’ actioner Uncharted, starring Tom Holland (Spider-Man: No Way Home) and Mark Wahlberg, looks to break the trend over the President’s Day weekend with the latest film adaptation of a popular video game franchise.

Sony reportedly is projecting a $27 million North American opening over three days, which would put the title behind recent video game-themed releases Sonic the Hedgehog, at $58 million in 2020 from Paramount Pictures, and Warner Bros.’ Pok√©mon Detective Pikachu with $54.3 million in 2019. Uncharted generated more than $3.7 million in select Thursday night sneak peek screenings.
