Spider-Man – No Way Home: The box office… already 1.054 BILLION dollars in the world!

Parker’s Rise Continues… For its second weekend of operation in the United States, Spider-Man : No Way Home raised $ 81.5 million (-68.7%; total: 467.3 million). This is the biggest fall in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (Black Widow : -67.8%), which is largely explained by the schedule setup, with the movie burning in demand throughout the week. In just eight days, the record for Spider-Man (403.7 million) has fallen and the $ 700 million mark is more relevant than ever, enough to clinch the MCU’s silver medal upon arrival, between Avengers : Endgame (858.4 million) and Black Panther (700.1 million). Internationally, Spider-Man continues to fill up with $ 121.4 million (total: 587.1 million). If we do the accounts, that makes 1.054 billion dollars worldwide … Spider-Man : No Way Home is therefore the first billionaire of the Covidian era! The arachnid record of Spider-Man : Far From Home (1.133 billion) is about to be beaten and that of a solo superhero – held by Black Panther (1.395 billion) – will be in a few days. It remains to be seen how manyAvengers the Weaver will be able to capture in his web … Avengers : L’Ere d’Ultron (1.395 billion) is just a formality. Avengers (1.515 billion) is a virtual certainty. As for Avengers : Infinity War (2.045 billion), this would have been possible in another reality, but since China is no longer playing the game …

Behind, it’s the soup with the grimace … Lead by the simultaneous release on HBO Max and by unenthusiastic returns, Matrix Resurrections posts a five-day debut weekend at $ 22.5 million, finishing in third place at the U.S. box office behind All in scene 2 (39.4 million). This is the worst start in the franchise, behind Matrix (37.4 millions), Matrix Revolutions (83.8 million) and Matrix Reloaded (134.3 million). A pitiful end of career at 60 million dollars is to be expected, far from the first three opus (171.5 million / 281.6 million / 139.3 million). Internationally, it is hardly more encouraging, with 47.3 million dollars, which gives us a worldwide total of 62.8 million dollars. Matrix (463.5 millions), Matrix Reloaded (739.4 million) and Matrix Revolutions (427.3 million) are already out of reach. As for The King’s Man : Première Mission… With $ 10 million in the United States and $ 6.9 million internationally, Matthew Vaughn’s super-spies are wading through the yogurt (world: 16.9 million). It will of course be impossible to approach from near or far Kingsman : Services secrets (USA: 128.3 million / world: 414.4 million) and Kingsman : Le Cercle d’or (USA: 100.2 million / world: 410.9 million). Right now, unless you have a Marvel logo on the poster, almost everyone has a flop …
