With nothing much happening at the movie theater other than The Batman, Matt Reeves’ superhero colossus is powering on and cleaning up at the box office. The Adam Project went straight to Netflix, and Disney+ snapped up Turning Red from Pixar. There is not really any other show in town.
The Batman stayed in the number one spot and pulled in $66 million domestically, with the same again overseas. This places it at $238.5 million domestically and just over $460 million globally. In the US, it is already the second highest-grossing movie of the last two years behind Spider-Man: No Way Home.
The Tom Holland-led Uncharted is still proving critics wrong, with $9.2 million in its fourth week pushing it to $113 million domestic and just over $300 million worldwide. It hangs on to second place despite the movie being banned in Vietnam due to their sensitivity over a map shown in the movie that fails to recognize their claims over the contested regions of the South China Sea.
In a sign of the paucity of content at theaters right now, BTS Permission to Dance on Stage: Seoul came in third with $7 million, followed by Channing Tatum’s Dog in fourth with $5.3 million, and Spider-Man: No Way Home in fifth with $4.07 million.
Over the horizon, there is not a lot happening from the point of view of potential big tickets until we get to 21st March and The Lost City hits from Paramount, followed by Morbius on April 1st from Sony. Then later in April, Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets Of Dumbledore hold the fort before the Marvel juggernaut rolls into town to no doubt own the box-office for a while, starting with Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness on May 6th.
