Pandemic’s second-highest opening

The Batman’s bank account continues to grow. Following its tremendous premiere in theatres last weekend, The Batman earned the pandemic’s second-highest opening weekend with $128.5 million. The popular picture from director Matt Reeves and actor Robert Pattinson has taken in another $66 million this weekend, a figure that is still very high and considerably above the film in second place. Batman has already sold about $500 million worth of tickets worldwide, considerably exceeding its $200 million budget. Only four films have made over half a billion dollars during the pandemic era: Spider-Man: No Way Home ($1.86 billion and climbing), No Time to Die ($774 million), F9: The Fast Saga ($726 million), and Venom: Let There Be Carnage ($502 million).

Overall, these are outstanding results, especially given the film’s lengthy runtime and moviegoers’ persistent apprehension about going to the theatre. They’ll all come out for the appropriate picture, as they’ve just demonstrated. The success of Spider-Man: No Way Home is attributed in part to the film’s two-decade production, as well as the presence of established performers from prior Spider-Man films, which adds to the excitement. Warner Bros. may have considered The Batman more of a risk because it was a standalone feature with no ties to any other previously released films.

 

The Batman Flies High Above Uncharted at the Box Office

Uncharted, a video game adaptation starring Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg, is at No. 2 in the United States this week. The picture grossed $9.2 million in the United States, bringing its total domestic gross to $113 million. The BTS Permission to Dance on Stage: Seoul concert came in third with $6.8 million in its first week. With $5.3 million, Channing Tatum’s canine buddy film “Dog” slipped to fourth place.

It’s only fitting that Spider-Man: No Way Home maintains its position near the top of the box office. After months in the top three, the film was demoted to fourth place last week, and then to fifth place this weekend. The popular picture brought in another $4 million to add to the pot, making Scrooge McDuck envious. In addition to Tom Holland, Zendaya, Tobey Maguire, and Andrew Garfield, they feature in Spider-Man: No Way Home, which premiered in December.
