Weekend Box Office 1.31.2022

Weekend Box Office Poster of Top Three Movies
  1. SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME is number one again for what looks to be the last time, bringing in another $11M to raise the domestic total to $735.8M (Million), and the global haul to a stunning $1.738 Billion. Spider-Man is now only the sixth film to ever earn $1 Billion from international markets alone, and more impressively, it accomplished this feat without China. The only question now is whether the film will finish as the fourth highest-grossing film in the United States ever, or if it can unseat AVATAR to claim third, behind only AVENGERS: ENDGAME and STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. 
  2. SCREAM also re-queled itself to second place with $7.3M, a domestic total of $62.1M, and an impressive $106.2M worldwide for Paramount. Produced for only $25M plus marketing, this has become nicely profitable, and should finish globally with more than 5X its budget.
  3. SING 2 kept the music alive in third with $4.8M, a domestic total of $134.5M, and almost $268M worldwide. This is in addition to PVOD (Premium Video On Demand) where the animated hit has simultaneously been dominating the charts. This is also assured to pass the $300M mark globally before its run is over. Produced for $75M plus marketing, this has become a solid success for Illumination and Universal.
  4. REDEEMING LOVE is fourth place with a low-grossing $1.8M and a total of only $6.5M for Universal. This will vanish quickly as it makes its way to PVOD.
  5. THE KING'S MAN is fifth place at $1.7M, a domestic total of $34M, and $114.4M worldwide. Produced for $100M plus marketing, it is a sharp financial loss for 20th Century Studios and Disney, despite strong holds, due to a weak start and high budget.
  6. THE 355 held onto sixth place with $1.4M, a domestic total of only $13M, and $21M worldwide. Notably, the spy flick also made its way to PVOD over the weekend, though chart positioning has not been made available yet. Produced for upwards of $60M, this is another financial loss for Universal and all involved. 
  7. AMERICAN UNDERDOG continues to be a sleeper success for Lionsgate at number seven, with $1.2M (a jump of +4% from last weekend) for a total of $24.7M. Produced for around $10M plus a modest marketing campaign, this will prove profitable for the studio. 
  8. GHOSTBUSTERS: AFTERLIFE rose +17% from last weekend, good enough for eighth place with $770K, a domestic total of $128M, and $196M worldwide. With Japan still on deck, this will pass the $200M mark for Sony soon, in addition to strong numbers from PVOD charts. Produced for $75M plus marketing, this has become solidly profitable once all revenue sources are factored in. 
  9. LICORICE PIZZA is ninth place with $1M and a total of $8.1M, ahead of what will be a long awards run, where the film is expected to garner a plethora of nominations.
  10. WEST SIDE STORY landed in seventh with $1.4M, a domestic total of $32M, and only $53M worldwide. Produced for $100M plus marketing, this is a sharp financial loss for 20th Century Studios and Disney, though Spielberg's musical is anticipated to enjoy a lengthy run of award nominations.

Next weekend launches what is looking to be a busy and lucrative February, kicking off with Lionsgate's MOONFALL, and Paramount's JACKASS FOREVER. The following weekend will see DEATH ON THE NILE from Fox, and MARRY ME from Universal, before President's Day weekend brings Channing Tatum-starrer DOG, and Sony's video game tentpole. UNCHARTED, with Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg, on track for strong results.
