Marvel is dominating the box office in theaters around the world
NEW YORK (dpa) – Hollywood ends 2021 with more box office hits for “Spider-Man: No Way Home”, which surpassed all other films for the third week in a row and is already one of the top-selling films in history.
But even with all of the champagne “No Way Home” uncovered, the film industry is heading into 2022 with ample cause for concern and optimism after total ticket sales have doubled since 2020, but the Covid19 pandemic is still there.
Most of the theaters started the year closed, but ended with a gigantic success.
Marvel’s sequel “No Way Home”, distributed by Sony Pictures, grossed around $ 52.7 million over the weekend for a grand total of $ 609 million in three weeks. It is the tenth highest number in North America in history.
Globally, it has grossed $ 1.37 billion, a grand total that is above Black Panther and ranks 12th. most successful film in world history.
“No Way Home,” Tom Holland’s third film with Spider-Man, gave a huge boost to the box office revenue recovery that began last spring when theaters opened after a year of closure due to the crash.
Marvel films dominated the turbulent year with the four most successful films of 2021: “No Way Home”, “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings”, “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” and “Black Widow”.
North American cinemas totaled $ 4.5 billion in 2021, according to market research firm Comscore.
Compared to 2019, that’s about a 60% decrease, before the days of widespread use of masks in cinemas, social distancing, and variants of the coronavirus like the current Omicron.
The cartoon sequel “Sing 2” from Universal Pictures landed in second place at the weekend. It earned $ 19.6 million on its second weekend at the show, and in two weeks it was $ 89.7 million. Internationally, he earned another 54.9 million.
For its part, The King’s Man grossed a modest $ 4.5 million in its second week of cinema after a lackluster debut, but that was enough for third place. This Disney film, produced by 20th Century Studios, grossed $ 47.8 million worldwide.
Hollywood is back to superheroes for 2022 – from Morbius to Batman, Thor and Spider-Man – and long-awaited sequels such as “Avatar” or “Top Gun”. With these productions they want to regain lost ground.
