We already said on Saturday, Christmas Day, that the battle between Spider-Man: No Way Home, with Tom holland, Zendaya and Benedict Cumberbatch, and Matrix Resurrections, with Keanu reeves, it was not turning out even.
And with the figures for this weekend, the preference of the Argentine public became even clearer.

Is that Spider-Man: No Way Home It has already exceeded two million tickets sold in just eleven days on the bill (plus the preview functions on Wednesday, December 15). It has already counted 2,023,206 viewers, a figure that even exceeds the other Spider-Man movies in Argentina.
For example, Spider-Man: far from home, the previous film, also starring Tom Holland, and released in 2019, had 1,285,785 viewers in its 17 weeks. Y Spider-Man: Homecoming, of 2017, in its eleven weeks it was seen by 1,121,922 people.

Matrix Resurrections It has sold 73,038 tickets in just five days on the bill -and 52,380 from Thursday to Sunday-, always according to the data that the ComScore company has at this time.
On Wednesday, when it opened, it was watched by 20,554 viewers, just a little more than on Thursday, when it cut 20,216 tickets.
TO Spider-Man: No Way Home 205,527 viewers saw it that Wednesday, so it closed its opening week (plus the nightly preview functions on Wednesday, December 15) with 1,725,754 tickets sold. It already surpassed the previous two Spider-Man starring Tom Holland.

From Thursday 23 to Sunday 26 – Friday 24 very few theaters opened – 294,099 people chose to see the film in which Peter Parker faces five villains who had previously fought with the other Peter Parker who were played by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.
There are 189 cinemas that now screen the Marvel and Sony film. Those of the Warner Bros. film are 154. The premiere of Matrix Resurrections subtracted some screens from Spider-man, since last week it looked at 208.
So much Spider-Man: No Way Home What Matrix Resurrections They have cut themselves, and left very, very far behind the other films that are on the bill this end of the year, at least in Argentina.

The number of spectators for the weekend – from Thursday to Sunday – was 359,957. That is, 81.70% of the total – or 8 out of 10 – paid their ticket to see Spider-Man, and 14.55% did it to see Neo, Trinity, another Morpheus and a certain Smith , which is not the one you imagine.
Between both titles they led to 96.25% of the public. Those of us who feared that at some point the public’s attention was going to be atomized into a few films, leaving fewer rooms for the rest of the productions, we were right. Love without barriers, by Steven Spielberg, for example, started its third week in theaters in … two theaters only.
The successes of the two Hollywood tanks have moved the release date of some titles that were to arrive shortly. For example, Rifkin’s Festival, the last film directed by Woody Allen, which was to be released on the first Thursday of January, the 6th, was postponed to the 20th of that same month. For now.
