Weekend Box-Office: SPIDER-MAN NO WAY HOME Re-Release Leads Labor Day Frame

Weekend Box Office Spider Man No Way Home 2022 National Cinema Day

The 2022 Labor Day weekend box-office received a serious boost from National Cinema Day, an event that brought 8.1 million moviegoers to theaters, a record number for 2022, with the help of heavily discounted $3 tickets. More than 3,000 theaters across the country, including major chains, participated in the event and charged just $3 for admission to any movie in any format, including IMAX, 3D, D-Box, and ScreenX. The one-day event brought in $24.3 million.

However, the weekend was still lacking in terms of new releases, and earnings were pretty low throughout. So much so, that the re-release of Sony's "Spider-Man: No Way Home" topped the charts this weekend.

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

"Spider-Man: No Way Home" returned to theaters and topped the charts with $6 million over the 3-day frame and an estimated $7.6 million for the 4-day. Sony's superhero flick was the highest-grossing film of 2021, earning $804.7 million in North America and $1 billion internationally.

"Top Gun: Maverick" finished in second place, gaining 139% on Saturday thanks to National Cinema Day, and 16% overall for the weekend. The film grossed $5.5 million for the 3-day and is expected to end up with $7 million for the extended holiday frame. The sequel has now grossed a total of $700.3 million domestically, $740.4 million overseas, and $1.440 billion worldwide.

In third place, the animated film "DC League of Super-Pets" also benefited from National Cinema Day and saw an increase of 31.9% from the previous weekend, grossing $5.45 over the 3-day frame, and around $6.9 million for the 4-day. The film's domestic tally has reached $82.3 million, while overseas it has raked in $78.7 million.

The Brad Pitt starrer "Bullet Train" dropped from second place to fourth with $5.4 million over the weekend (-3.7% decline), and will probably finish the extended holiday frame with around $6.8 million. The film has grossed a total of $87.3 million in North America and another $109.5 million internationally.

The Top 5 is rounded out by last week's No. 1 movie "The Invitation". The film dropped just 30.9%, but it doesn't make much of a difference when its opening weekend was so small ($6.8 million). The film has grossed $4.7 million for the 3-day and should rake in $5.75 million for the 4-day.

In tenth place we find Steven Spielberg's 1975 classic thriller "Jaws". The film has been re-released in IMAX and 3D theaters by Universal, and grossed $2.3 million from 1,246 screens over the weekend, and will earn $2.7 million over the 4-day frame.

This week's only new wide release, the satire "Honk For Jesus: Save Your Soul" opened in 1,879 theaters and delivered a weak $1.4 million. The film was probably hurt by debuting day-and-date simultaneously in cinemas and on Peacock.
