With the start of the new year, the Italian box office is also changing its skin, after weeks of absolute dominance dictated by Spider-Man: No Way Home.
In fact, towards the first weekend of 2022 we find Belli Ciao, a comedy directed by Gennaro Nunziante starring the comic duo Pio & Amedeo.
Despite the new rules requiring FFP2 masks in halls and a ban on the consumption of food and drink during film screenings, Belli Ciao collected an impressive €998,942, a figure that confirms Gennaro Nunziante as the king of the box office.
Obviously followed by Spider-Man: No Way Home with a collection of € 878,238 in the weekend alone and which brings the latest Marvel endeavor to a total of € 20,257,684 : a remarkable result, especially when we consider the period of history we are in , which made Sony films Marvel remains at the top of the most watched movies of the season.
In third and fourth place in the New Year’s box office standings are two new faces: Me versus You – Lost in Time and The Rise of the Matrix. 경관의 피 (2022) 영화 다시보기
The third film starring a pair of youtubers confirms that their formula works well – in terms of success – in theaters: in the first two days of programming, the total proceeds came to €865,080.
The new chapter of the Matrix saga takes home €775,102 , a collection that isn’t exciting for film status but one that is in line with the results that Matrix Resurrections has created globally.
The remaining data don’t say anything new compared to the previous weeks, but it’s worth noting how the House of Gucci and Diabolik were able to withstand the impact of the new releases while still keeping their daily collections over the weekend above 100k euros.
Instead of moving toward the international box office, the plot is the same as in previous weeks and always recites the same monologue: Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Collecting $52.7 million in the first weekend of 2022, the third installment of the Spider-Man trilogy starring Tom Holland reached $609,892,000 in receipts in the United States alone and $1,368,892,000 globally.
This extraordinary success brought Spider-Man: No Way Home to the top ten highest-grossing films ever in the United States (excluding inflation), removing The Incredibles 2 from tenth place.
Picking up in the crumbs were Sing 2 and The King’s Man, which collected $19,600,215 and $4.5 million over the weekend, respectively, taking them to second and third place in the 2022 box office rankings.
Matrix Resurrection in the United States proved a flop, losing 68.1% from the previous week with a cash-out of just $3,825,000 during the first days of 2022.
A fact, the latter, which confirms the famous choice by Warner Bros. to distribute its films simultaneously in both theaters and on HBO Max.
Finally, despite the very disappointing reception, West Side Story by Steven Spielberg continued to keep their numbers steady, losing only 26.2% compared to last week and reaching a total of $50 million in revenue.
Looking at its release in the next few weeks, it seems that Spider-Man: No Way Home is destined to remain at the top of the box office charts, awaiting the arrival of Morbius on January 28.
That’s all for now, dear Business i $ Business readers.
While waiting to find out how the situation at the box office will turn out in two weeks … you went to the movies, right?
