No Way Home Swings Past Titanic in the U.S. Box Office


The box office behemoth Spider-Man: No Way Home continued its rampage through cinemas, taking in another $33 million (-41%) in its fourth weekend, per Deadline. That number was enough to help the Web-Head swing past Titanic’s $659.3 million U.S. total and inch closer to Avengers: Infinity War ($678.8 million) as the fifth-highest domestic grossing movie of all time.

Globally, Spidey added another $64.4 million to its international box office total, which stands at $867.5 million, meaning its global tally now sits at a whopping $1.53 billion, all without China, where the film has yet to open.

Of course, with Spider-Man gobbling up the box office, films such as The 355 are being left for dead. The Simon Kinberg-directed flick managed just $4.8 million against a $20 million budget and landed at No. 3 due to poor reviews and middling word of mouth.

Elsewhere, Sing 2 dropped just 41% to bring in $12 million in its third weekend despite releasing on PVOD just 17 days after its release. To date, the Illumination flick has grossed $109 million, making it the highest-grossing animated film of the pandemic era, which should make Pixar reconsider its bid to release Turning Red directly to Disney+ in March.
