Spider-Man wins the weekend box office for July 12-14

A Spider proved to be the one bug that couldn’t be killed this weekend as Spider-Man: Far From Home was once again in first place at the weekend box office for July 12-14. The newest Marvel Studios film made another $45.3 million to bring its domestic gross to over $274.5 million in just under two weeks. That also brings the worldwide total to just under $850 million, all but insuring that this film — like most Marvel films — will hit the $1 billion mark.

Disney’s Toy Story 4 was once again in second place, with another $20.6 million. In the four weeks of its release, Woody, Buzz, and friends has made $346.3 million domestically, and over $770 million worldwide. Not bad for a film that most people thought didn’t even need to happen.

Disney’s top of the weekend box office dominance was broken up by the new Paramount Pictures film, Crawl. This timely killer-alligators-during-a-hurricane thriller made $12 million in its opening weekend, and with a reported budget of $13.5 million, is well on its way to profitability. The film is timely as Hurricane Barry made landfall in southern Louisiana this weekend, causing mass flooding in and around New Orleans and its many parishes. As if these folks needed a horror film in their lives right now.

The new buddy comedy Stuber came in fourth place with just over $8 million. The Dave Bautista-Kumail Nanjiani comedy scored so big laughs with audiences and critics, but the lower-end debut has to be a disappointment for Fox.

Rounding out the top five at the weekend box office for July 12-14 is the world-without-the-Beatles film, Yesterday, which made $6.7 million and has a three week total of $48.3 million domestically.
