After spending a weekend in second place, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” proved to be still a bit of a struggle. Sony’s superhero juggernaut has returned to the top spot in cinemas for the sixth weekend and has become the sixth highest-grossing film of all time worldwide.
On Sunday, the film topped the North American charts with $ 14.1 million, according to studio estimates. Globally, it grossed nearly $ 1.7 billion, surpassing the total revenue of Jurassic World and The Lion King. In North America, it was its fourth-largest release at $ 721 million.
Peter Parker also stole first place from Scream, which dropped about 59% on his second weekend – a typical decline for horror – about $ 12.4 million from ticket sales. Paramount’s release has raised $ 51.3 million so far.
Universal and Illumination’s “Sing 2” peaked at number three on the fifth weekend with $ 5.7 million. The animated title grossed $ 241.2 million worldwide.
