Spider-Man: No Way Home had no problem keeping its number one spot at the box office this weekend. The latest installment from Marvel Studios and Sony featuring Tom Holland’s Peter Parker, along with some help in unexpected places, earned $52.7 million in its third weekend in theaters. Spider-Man: No Way Home cruised past the $1 billion global mark last week, making it the indisputable king of the 2021 pandemic box office. The pandemic has been ramping up again, with cases on the rise, adding to some unpredictability at movie theaters.
In addition to taking the 2021 top spot, Spider-Man: No Way Home has now surpassed $1.37 billion, which makes it the twelfth largest global movie in box office history. To date, the highly anticipated sequel has $609.8 million domestically and it shows no signs of slowing down any time soon. The sequel is on track to take down the global eight and nine slots in the coming weeks, Star Wars: The Last Jedi ($620 million) and The Avengers ($623 million), respectively. No other blockbuster released in the pandemic era has come close to touching Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Sing 2 remained at number two this weekend after taking in $19.6 million. The animated family sequel has gained positive reviews from viewers and critics in its two weeks in theaters. The King’s Man earned $4.5 million, which was enough to take the third spot. The prequel to 2014’s Kingsman: The Secret Service and 2017’s Kingsman: The Golden Circle stars Ralph Fiennes, Gemma Arterton, Rhys Ifans, Matthew Goode, Tom Hollander, Harris Dickinson, Daniel Brühl, Djimon Hounsou, and Charles Dance.
