Coming as a surprise to absolutely nobody, Jon Watts‘ Spider-Man: No Way Home is once again taking the top spot at the box office. Since its release back in December of 2021, it has only been overthrown one weekend – by the brand new fifth Scream film.
The superhero epic estimated $11M, down just 21% from last weekend. The domestic total for the Marvel franchise pic now stands at a jaw-dropping $735.89M.
The web-slinger sequel has now spent a total of six weeks at the top of the chart, surpassing Black Panther’s five-week run at No. 1 in 2018 to give No Way Home the honor of most weekends at No. 1 for any superhero film or comic-book adaptation
Additionally, the aforementioned fifth Scream film took the second place at the box office this weekend, earning a total of $7.35 million. The meta-slasher flick also grossed $6.5M from 55 markets this weekend, bringing its international total to $44.1M.
Meanwhile, the animated adventure Sing 2 earned a total of $4.8 million this past weekend at the box office, putting the Universal/Illumination animated sequel at $134.51M to date. Among indie releases, Sundown hit on a half dozen screens, but without too much of an impact.
