A movie starring Tom Holland has been No. 1 for the eighth consecutive month. #1 at the box office.
According to studio estimates, Uncharted, a Sony Pictures videogame adaptation starring Mark Wahlberg and Holland, was the most popular ticket sale for its second weekend. It earned $23.3 million.
“Uncharted” also did well, with a modest 46% drop from its $44million debut. It has made $83.4 million in the U.S. and Canada theaters within two weeks.
“Uncharted”, a long-in development adventure film about lost treasure, is also in theaters abroad. “Uncharted,” which still has a release date in China in March, raised $35 million overseas to bring its global gross to $226.4million.
The film’s strong international sales include box office from Russia where studios have so far chosen to keep movies in release after Ukraine invaded earlier in the week.
The success of “Uncharted,” which follows the blockbuster “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” has seen Holland’s star rise. “No Way Home,” which topped the box office six times in December and January, remains a top-drawer in theaters. It landed third with $5.8million, which brought it closer to $800,000,000 in domestic ticket sales.
Although both “Uncharted,” and “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” have enjoyed brand recognition, it is rare that one movie star has ruled so long in theaters for 12 weeks.
Star power has also kept Channing Tatum’s “Dog,” which is directed by Reid Carolin, at number 2. MGM’s release, which Tatum directed with Reid Carolin, saw a 32% decline with $10.1million in its second weekend. The film, in which Tatum portrays an Army Ranger who is paired up with an Army dog for a road trip, has so far made $30.9 million. This comes against a budget of $15 million.
Few new wide releases were available in theaters on Friday with the release of “The Batman” by Warner Bros.
The Foo Fighters horror-comedy “Studio 666,” released jointly by Briarcliff Entertainment and Open Road, opened in 2,306 theaters. The film starred Dave Grohl and his company as themselves, while they made their 10th haunted house record. It debuted with $1.5million.
MGM grossed $1.4 million from the repeated delayed release of “Cyrano” starring Peter Dinklage in 797 theaters. The musical, directed by Joe Wright, has received warm reviews. However, despite several major Golden Globe nominations it only won a nomination for costume design.
Five decades ago is the best-selling new release. Paramount’s 50th Anniversary, remastered release Francis Ford Coppola’s “The Godfather”, debuted in 156 theaters with $900,000.
