Three big event movies –Illumination/Universal’s Sing 2, Warner Bros’ Matrix Resurrections, and 20th Century Studios’ The King’s Man were no match for Sony’s Spider-Man: No Way Home which continued to dominate Wednesday with an amazing $27.8M. The Jon Watts-directed MCU title has a running U.S/Canadian total of $356.5M over six days, which is the third best for that range after Avengers: Endgame ($452.3M) and Star Wars: Force Awakens ($363.4M). As of right now, No Way Home is pacing behind Force Awakens by -2%.
For the most part, low Wednesday openings before Christmas are par for the course, especially with a big movie like Spider-Man in the marketplace. Sing 2‘s $8M opening at 3,892 theaters, though 27% off from the $11M Wednesday opening of its first chapter in 2016, is still a very good start, besting such family driven Wednesday debuts as Mary Poppins Returns ($4.7M, 3-day $23.5M, 5-day $32.3M) and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle ($7.2M, $36.1M 3-day, $52.8M 5-day+previews). Sing 2 should reach its projection over 5-days between $42M-$50M, a very good start. Sing 2 gets an A+ from CinemaScore audiences and currently is 67% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.
Warner Bros./Village Roadshow’s Matrix Resurrections came in at $6.4M at 3,552 theaters, and the constant thought on the top of analysts heads this week will be how much HBO Max stole from the theatrical till. That result for the sequel is above the opening Wednesday of 1999’s The Matrix ($4.8M at 2,704 theaters, 3-day $27.7M, 5-day $37.3M) and 2003’s The Matrix Reloaded, which drew ($5M at 2,750 theaters), but it’s also higher than the Wednesday start of the sci-fi Jennifer Lawrence-Chris Pratt Village Roadshow/Sony movie Passengers which made $4.1M, before a $14.8M 3-day, and 5 day of $22.1M. That movie, which of course was on a theatrical window, made it to $100M. Matrix Revolutions stills holds the franchise record for the best Wednesday opening with $24.3M.
Matrix Resurrections gets a B-, the lowest audience score of any Matrix movie after the first movie’s A-, The Matrix Reloaded‘s B+ and The Matrix Revolutions’ B-.
20th Century Studios/Disney’s The King’s Man earned $2.3M on Wednesday at 3,175 theaters. The Matthew Vaughn directed prequel in The Kingsmen series notched a B+ Cinemascore.
