Weekend Box-Office: SPIDER-MAN - NO WAY HOME Crosses $600M and Becomes 10th-Highest Grossing Domestic Release in History

Weekend Box-Office: Spider-Man: No Way Home Crosses $600M and Becomes 10th-Highest Grossing Domestic Release in History

"Spider-Man: No Way Home" continues to dominate the box-office this weekend. There were no new wide releases, and the other films that were already in theaters are fighting over whatever is left in the wake of the new Spider-Man movie. Most films saw a spike in business on New Year's Day, with wide releases seeing a near 42% climb over Friday.

Read more about the weekend box-office after the jump.

Spider-Man: No Way Home" once again topped the charts with $52.7 million over the weekend, dropping 37.7% from last week. This brings the film's domestic tally to $609 million, making it the 10th-highest grossing domestic release ever, surpassing "Incredibles 2" ($608 million). It's also the first blockbuster to cross the $600 million mark since "Avengers: Endgame" in 2019, and the first non-Disney release to do that since Universal's "Jurassic World" in 2015. "Spider-Man: No Way Home" also raked in another $78.3 million overseas, which brings it overseas total to $759 million. With $1.37 billion worldwide, the film is Sony's highest-grossing release of all time.

The animated sequel "Sing 2" held over in second place with $19.6 million, dropping just 12%, which is the lowest drop percentage in the Top 10 this weekend. The film has grossed a total of $89.6 million domestically and another $54.8 million overseas. The film will soon surpass "Encanto" ($91.3 million) to become the highest-grossing animated film of the pandemic.

In third place we find "The King's Man", up one spot from #4, with $4.5 million. The film dropped just 24% from last weekend's debut, and its domestic total has reached $19.5 million. Overseas it grossed a total of $28.3 million.

The sports biopic "American Underdog" also climbed one spot to #4 and grossed $4.07 million over the weekend. The film is also holding up well, dropping just 30.8% in its sophomore frame. The film has now grossed $15 million in North America.

The Top 5 is rounded out by "The Matrix Resurrections" which finished in fifth place with $3.8 million. The film dropped a massive 64% from its opening, and has only grossed a total of $30.9 million domestically after 11 days in theaters. Overseas, the film has raked in a total of $75.1 million from 76 markets. "The Matrix Resurrections" has grossed a total of $106 million worldwide against a $190 million budget. The film will open in China on January 14, and I bet Warner Bros is really hoping for a miracle at this point.
