Spider-Man: No Way Home Scores Box Office Win

The Labor Day weekend is a dead weekend for movies – even though there is money to be made on it – and the theaters tried to up their game for it with a National Cinema’s Day with $3 tickets. That helped to get people back into the theater for a couple of things such as the re-release of Spider-Man: No Way Home with additional footage. That let the film add another $6 million for the three days and projected a bit more when viewed as a four-day weekend with the holiday.

It also helped with Top Gun Maverick as that film in its 15th week added another $5.5 million which with the Monday numbers will put it over the $700 million mark.

Pretty great for a movie nobody thought should be made.

Everything else is pretty much just a few million and close to that so it’s jockeying for a position where it doesn’t mean much. Dragon Ball Super at least added another $2.4 million to its coffers to bring it to $34.8 million, which is really great for a specialty project like this.

As for what’s next, September 9th sees the wide release of Brahmastra Part One: Shiva from Disney while 20th Century Studios goes with the horror/thriller Barbarian. Avenue Pictures is going to try and go wide with Medieval
