This weekend’s new movies failed to leave much of an impact on the box office charts, as Sony’s “Spider-Man: Far From Home” continues to swing past all previous Spider-Man films with a $45.3 million second weekend total.Worldwide, the eighth Spidey installment and the second produced by Marvel Studios has grossed $847 million, becoming the biggest Spider-Man film internationally with $572.5 million grossed overseas. “Far From Home” will pass the $880 million global total of “Spider-Man: Homecoming” this week, and is 22% ahead of the domestic pace set by that 2017 film.Taking second on the charts is Disney/Pixar’s “Toy Story 4,” which is approaching $350 million domestic with an estimated $20.3 million fourth weekend, bringing its total to $346 million and keeping it slightly ahead of the pace set by “Toy Story 3,” which made $339 million to this point in its 2010 theatrical run.Also Read: 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' Beats 'Stuber' and 'Crawl' at Box OfficeBut the continued success of these two blockbusters came somewhat at the expense of two lower-budget newcomers: Paramount’s “Crawl” and Disney/Fox’s “Stuber.” “Crawl” has gained some post-release word of mouth thanks to a 89% Rotten Tomatoes score and a B on CinemaScore, and grossed a decent $12 million opening from 3,170 screens against a reported $13 million budget. Paramount is hoping that “Crawl” will leg out, as well as “47 Meters Down,” which opened to $11.2 million in 2017 and went on to gross $44 million.But “Stuber,” a film inherited by Disney from the Fox merger, is struggling with an estimated $8 million opening from 3,050 screens. Reception for the film was much more lukewarm with critics with a 47% Rotten Tomatoes score and a B from CinemaScore audiences.Farther down the charts, Disney’s “Aladdin” inches closer to the $1 billion mark after earning $5.9 million in its eighth weekend, bringing its total to $960 million. “Avengers: Endgame,” meanwhile, is just $7 million away from passing the global total of “Avatar,” having crossed $850 million domestic in its 12th weekend.Also Read: 'Crawl' Film Review: Kaya Scodelario Contends With Killer Gators and a Toothless ScreenplayNext weekend sees the release of Disney’s remake of “The Lion King,” which has received polarizing reviews from critics with a 60% Rotten Tomatoes score. The film opened this weekend in China to a $54.7 million opening, with $6 million from 618 IMAX screens.That total is higher than the $46.5 million earned by the “Jungle Book” remake and the $45.2 million earned by the “Beauty and the Beast” remake in the same market. “The Lion King” will open in all other international territories except Hong Kong, Japan and Italy next weekend.Read original story ‘Spider-Man’ Swings to $45 Million Weekend as Box Office Newcomers Struggle At TheWrap
