Marvel’s “Spider-Man: No Way Home” continued its remarkable success at the box office this weekend, pulling in another $81.5 million to lead all films, according to industry estimates out Sunday.

The latest edition of the lucrative film franchise — which stars Tom Holland, Zendaya and Benedict Cumberbatch — has grossed $467.332 million at theaters in the United States and Canada since its opening last weekend, and is the first movie in the pandemic era to gross more than $1 billion worldwide.

Universal’s animated “Sing 2” was in second place with an estimated five-day total of $41 million, Comscore reported. That film and some others opened Wednesday to take advantage of the holiday weekend.

“Sing 2” edged out another film making its debut, “The Matrix Resurrections,” which made $22.5 million Wednesday through Sunday. “The Matrix Resurrections” is also available for home viewing on HBO Max.

“The King’s Man” opened in fourth place with $10 million since Wednesday, followed by “American Underdog,” which opened Friday and made $6.2 million.

Rounding out the top 10 domestic releases, as estimated by Comscore, were “West Side Story” ($2.8 million), “Licorice Pizza” ($2.3 million), “A Journal for Jordan” ($2.2 million). “Encanto” ($2 million) and “’83” ($1.7 million).
