‘Spidey’ catches audiences in its web for a 2nd weekend


Stuber what? Crawl where?

Despite two new minor openings this weekend, audiences decided to stick with Sony and Marvel’s Spider-man: Far From Home and Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 4.

The webslinger continues to swing with a $45.3 million second weekend total, a respectable 51% drop.

Globally, the second installment of Tom Holland in the MCU, and eighth overall, has grossed $847 million, becoming the biggest Spider-Man film internationally with $572.5 million grossed overseas.

Far From Home will pass the $880 million global total of Spider-Man: Homecoming this week, and is 22% ahead of the domestic pace set by that 2017 film.

Coming in second are Woody and Buzz in Toy Story 4. The animated film is now approaching $350 million domestically, taking in $20.3 million in it fourth weekend. TS4 is now running slightly ahead of TS3 which had made $339m at this point.

As for, ahem, Paramount’s low-budget entry, Crawl, and Disney/Fox’s Stuber, well there is not much to say. Crawl actually has an 89% Rotten Tomatoes score and a B on CinemaScore. It’s opening was decent, while lacking bite, at $12m. In Stuber, the studio was stupefied as the film garnered a 47% Rotten Tomatoes score and a B from CinemaScore audiences.

In the Avengers: Endgame-Avatar watch, the MCU film is now just $7 million away from passing the global total of the James Cameron hit, having crossed $850 million domestic in its 12th weekend. Below are the domestic and Worldwide Box Office charts for this weekend:

Of course, Spidey will probably lose the top position to yet, another Disney film (beginning to wonder if there are any others) arriving. The Lion King, while receiving polarizing reviews, will still command the box office. The film has already opened this weekend in China to a tune of $54.7 million opening, with $6 million from 618 IMAX screens.
