UNCHARTED Has Passed $100 Million At The Domestic Box Office Despite Being Taken Down By THE BATMAN

While The Batman has understandably gone straight to the top of the domestic box office this weekend, Uncharted is still doing well and has managed to pass the $100 million mark after just a few weeks...

Variety reports that Uncharted landed at second place at the domestic box office this weekend with $10 million, pushing it past $100 million domestic. That's a solid result for the video game adaptation, and one that should give Tom Holland a second blockbuster franchise at Sony Pictures. While a sequel hasn't been officially announced, it's thought to be in the early stages of development.

$100 million might not sound like much, but in this "pandemic era," that's a fantastic result.

Talking of Holland, Spider-Man: No Way Home is still earning decent money too; that webbed up $4.3 million over the weekend, bringing its domestic cume to a spectacular $786 million. Believe it or not, the Sony/Marvel Studios threequel has remained in the Top 5 consistently since opening last year.

Despite early estimates suggesting The Batman would open between $110 million - $120 million, the DC Comics adaptation has exceeded expectations again with a $128.5 million opening weekend in North America. As only the second movie in this "pandemic era" to open north of $100 million, Matt Reeves' movie has been nothing short of a huge hit for Warner Bros. 

It may not be on quite the same level as Spider-Man: No Way Home - that debuted to $260 million last December - but The Batman has obliterated the previous record holder for the second-biggest opening since 2019. Uncharted opened with $44 million last month, but the World's Greatest Detective's big screen return bested that during a single day. 

With a $200 million budget, The Batman still has a long way to go before turning a profit, but as one of only a handful of Hollywood movies to secure a Chinese release, we're sure it will. In less than 45 days, it will hit HBO Max, and that's bound to drive up the streaming service's subscription numbers.
