It was another weekend on top for Spider-Man: No Way Home, as the MCU film spent its sixth non-consecutive week atop the box office. No Way Home landed at #1 again with $11 million, off just 22% from last weekend’s take. That puts the film at $735.9 million domestically and $1.738 billion worldwide, obviously amazing numbers against its $200 million budget.

Right now, Spider-Man still stands at #4 on the all-time domestic chart and #6 on the worldwide box office rankings. While the latter seems to be its likely ending point, it isn’t impossible that it could rise to #3 domestically as it is just $25 million away from Avatar’s $760.5 million final take. It will be close either way, and it will run up against new competition starting next week, but right now $755 million to $760 million does look to be the endgame.

Scream stabilized as expected this week, down a very solid 40% to $7.4 million in its third frame. The slasher sequel is now at $62.1 million domestically and has crossed the $100 million mark worldwide, standing at $106.2 million globally. The film has surpassed both metrics for Scream 4, and had a much lower budget to boot at $24 million. Scream is looking likely to finish out close to Scream 3’s $89.1 million, proving to be the first major hit film of 2022.

Sing 2 remains on a roll as it was even at #3 with $4.8 million. That’s down just 17% from last weekend. The animated sequel has climbed to $134.5 million domestically and $267.9 million worldwide, great numbers against a $85 million production budget. It should finish off at around $145 million to $150 million in the US.

Universal Pictures’ faith-based romantic drama Redeeming Love had an okay hold in its second weekend, down 48% to $1.9 million. That’s not bad for a genre that is known for heavy drops; faith-based films tend to be quite front-loaded, as they’re fanboy films simply of a different genre. The film now stands at $6.5 million domestically and $6.6 million worldwide, with a final domestic total around $10 million to $12 million. No word on the budget.

The King’s Man stellar box office legs continued, as it was down just 2% to $1.8 million. The action flick has now grossed $34 million domestically and $114.4 million worldwide with a 5.76 domestic multiple of its opening weekend. Considering where the film started, that’s very good. However, the $100 million production budget means this film isn’t heading for profit; it’s just minimizing losses. It should end its stateside run at perhaps $38 million to $40 million.

The 355 is similarly trying to make up for a disastrous start with good legs, as it dropped 13% in its fourth weekend with $1.4 million. That brings this ensemble action film to $13.1 million domestically and $21.3 million worldwide. No matter what, this is a bomb as its production cost $75 million. It should end its run at around $18 million to $20 million stateside.

American Underdog took advantage of the lack of new releases, and was actually up 4% in its sixth weekend, with $1.2 million. The Zachary Levi-starring sports drama now stands at $24.8 million, a decent number for what was likely not an expensive movie. It should close out at around $28 million.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife refused to stay dead, jumping back into the top 10 with $770,000 thanks to a small expansion of its theater count. The franchise revival is now at $128.1 million domestically and $196.1 million worldwide, hit numbers against a $75 million budget. $130 million’s the endgame here.

Paul Thomas Anderson’s Licorice Pizza also rose, up 5% in its eighth weekend with $691,186. The period dramedy now sits at $11.8 million domestically and $19 million worldwide. With a $40 million budget, this has a long road to profit but award season might help.

West Side Story slipped 14% in its seventh weekend with $614,000. The musical has now grossed $36 million domestically and $61.4 million worldwide, a failure against a reported $100 million budget. The final domestic take should land at around $40 million.

The box office should make a bit of a comeback next weekend as Jackass Forever and Moonfall go into wide release. The fourth Jackass film should win the box office with around $25 million to $30 million, while the Roland Emmerich disaster film is targeting around $10 million or so.
