Spider-Man: There’s no way home swirls into the viewer’s heart, not once, not twice, but three times. It changes an industry’s imagination about What can be achieved in a pandemic?, and could very well change the future of the theater viewing experience. But now, a month after its release, the Marvel cinematic phenomenon is starting to wane, just a little. For the first time since its release, the Jon Watts song trilogy looks set to cede the top spot at the weekly box office.
The new one Screaming, co-directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett (Ready or not?), which is likely to take the crown with an expected $30.6 million in weekend sales. It’s a triumphant return to the super-horror series, which has seen more than a decade go by since 2011. Screaming 4. Reviews of Polygon said the film pushes “self-referencing to its limits to become a potentially money-making film decades later, while still mediating a satisfying reunion with original characters that are portrayed its favorite.”
ScreamingThese numbers are a good sign for an industry that is still wondering how to operate in uncertain times. Outside of Screaming 4failed, 2022 Screaming opening weekend is making money similar to what Scream 3 manufactured in 2000 ($34.7 million) and what Screaming 2 manufactured in 1997 ($32.9 million). While Screaming definitely part of a franchise, it’s not a franchise that has been maintained much over the years, with only a three-season TV show on MTV and VH1 keeping the flame.
But returning stars like Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courtney Cox, not to mention the generally positive response, built a level of excitement that seemed to match how people felt back then. Screaming the next part is reduced. So people are hunting for theater tickets for certain series when the details seem just right, such as returning stars and good reviews.
But the weekend news will most likely be Spider-Man: There’s no way homeSecond place is predicted to be $20 million, not too shabby. According to the independent box office website The numbers, There is no way homeThe gross for the weekend starting January 14 is the ninth-highest ever for a film in its fifth-wide opening. Put There’s no way home’contextual fifth weekend, Matrix Recovery only made 10 million dollars the first time.
As Tom Holland and Zendaya gradually move away from the top spot, the main question remaining for There is no way home is how the movie will rise. Expected to cross $700 million later this week, it will rise above Black Panther became the fourth-highest-grossing domestic film of all time and the second-highest-grossing Marvel film in the chart (Endgame is the all-time number two, and Divine Power Awakens Number one). After passing Black Panther, the next ladder to climb will pass James Cameron’s Avatar.
That might be a bit difficult for Spidey at this point. Avatar earned $760 million, and the projections show There is no way home down to around $730 million at this point. But of course, the initial predictions for There is no way home turned off, so there’s no reason to think it’s not possible. The next serious box office contender is likely to land in March, when Batman Try to grasp a new magic.
