Uncharted cements Tom Holland’s movie star status as Cyrano and Studio 666 bomb at the box office



In its second weekend, Sony’s video game adaptation “Uncharted” remained atop the box office, grossing $23.2 million, according to Box Office Mojo. It only dropped 47.2% and, in the age of the pandemic, that counts as a damn good catch for a big blockbuster. The film is now grossing $226 million worldwide, including $86 million domestic to date. The film certainly still has some way to go before it hits profitability, but audiences have so far grown. And with a China release imminent, this could indeed be the start of a franchise Sony has been looking for.

Meanwhile, Channing Tatum’s “Dog” again finished at number two with $10.1 million, losing just 32%, making it a pretty good catch, suggesting word of mouth is good for this one- this. It has now earned $32 million worldwide against a budget of $15 million before it even rolled out internationally. That’s a big argument for mid-budget movies as something studios should be looking for in the post-pandemic landscape.

Rounding out the top three is another Dutch joint, “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” which continues to make money with an added $5.7 million to its ridiculous total. It now stands at $1.86 billion worldwide. The biggest advantage here is that Holland, for two consecutive weeks, had two of the top three films in the country. “Uncharted” helped him become a real box office gamble and a real movie star who can put butts in seats. If we take anything away from this weekend before ‘The Batman’ madness took over, it’s that Holland climbed way up Hollywood’s A-list, and he doesn’t always need the costume. of Spider-Man to be on top.
