He does it multiple times in No Way Home, and now Spider-Man has once again climbed back to the top having been knocked down following this weekends $14.1M take at the U.S. box office.
That was enough to dethrone the latest instalment of Scream, which bled-out with a -58.7% drop-off from last weeks impressive debut at the box-office, the largest of any film in the top 10, for a three-day tally of $12.4M, and a total cume of $51.3M. However, this kind of sophomore performance is in-line with genre expectations, and the film has already surpassed the lifetime domestic gross of 2011’s Scream 4, which only managed $38.2M. Scream also scared up $33.6M overseas, for a global total of $84.9M. With numbers like these Ghostface will be charging the batteries on his voice-change sooner rather than later.
Back to Spidey though, whose sixth weekend total was enough to push it to fourth on the highest-grossing domestic releases of all time list with a whopping $721M, behind only Avatar ($760.5M), Avengers: Endgame ($858.4M), and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($936.7M). Internationally the trilogy-capping outing moved up to sixth all-time, taking its worldwide cume to a whopping $1.69 billion.
Third spot on the podium went to Sing 2, which despite being available as a VOD option, still managed $5.7M over the weekend for a total of $128.4M domestic. Overseas, where the film is still set to open in some lucrative territories, the Garth Jennings directed sequel made $112.8M, taking its worldwide tally to $241.2M, the best for an animated feature since this cursed pandemic began.
