Box Office Report for the Week of January 2

As was expected, Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man: No Way Home – which stars Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Zendaya amongst many, many others – took the top spot at the box office yet again this weekend, earning a weekend total of $52.7 million, which sees the film take a 37% drop from last week.

New animation film Sing 2 earned a weekend total of $19.6 million from 3,892 screens in its sophomore frame, a mere 12% drop from its opening weekend, lifting its theatrical run in North America to $89.6 million. The title is now days away from overtaking Disney’s Encanto ($91.3M) as the highest-grossing animated film of the pandemic.

20th Century Studios’ The King’s Man moved up to third place in its sophomore frame with a $4.5 million take from 3,160 screens, a modest 24% drop from last weekend’s debut. The film has earned $19.5 million after two weeks in North America. Internationally, The King’s Man has already earned $28.3 million from 22 markets. Falling fast, however, was The Matrix Resurrections and West Side Story. Both have underwhelmed and neither managed to make much of an impact this weekend.

Here’s the full list of the top ten films of the week:

  1. Spider-Man: No Way Home – $52.7M (-37%) – 4,206 theatres
