Tom Holland Tops Box Office For 2 Months with Spider-Man & Uncharted

With Uncharted taking its second week at #1, Tom Holland has topped the box office for eight weeks since Spider-Man: No Way Home’s December release.

Thanks to Spider-Man: No Way Home and Uncharted, Tom Holland has been number one at the box office for eight nonconsecutive weeks in just over two months. Spider-Man: No Way Home, which is the third movie in the MCU Spider-Man trilogy, came to theaters on December 17, 2021. With its hugely ambitious crossover of Marvel properties (including Doctor Strange and Daredevil, but most impactfully utilizing previous universes like Sam Raimi’s 2002 Spider-Man trilogy and Marc Webb’s Amazing Spider-Man movies), it quickly rose to the top of the charts for the year in under two weeks, topping the charts through January and rising through the ranks to eventually beat Avatar as the #3 highest-grossing film in domestic history.

Uncharted had no hope of reaching that kind of juggernaut success. However, the film, which is adapted from the video game series of the same name and features Tom Holland as a younger version of lead character Nathan Drake, has performed quite well in a relatively slow box office month. Uncharted opened in the U.S. on February 18, 2022 to the tune of $44 million, beating out the other project that opened that week: the Channing Tatum canine bonding film Dog.

Per Variety, Uncharted has claimed its second weekend at #1 in the U.S. box office, raking in an additional $23.2 million. This was probably inevitable, considering that the only competition this weekend was the poorly received Naomi Watts thriller The Desperate Hour. However, this makes it so that Tom Holland has led the box office race for eight weekends out of the last 11, making a nearly uninterrupted run since Spider-Man’s initial release.

Spider-Man: No Way is now well and truly out of the running for taking the number one slot at this point. It was briefly usurped by the release of the mid-January slasher sequel Scream and then knocked off permanently by new February wide release films including Jackass Forever and Death on the Nile. However, it is still simmering below the surface, performing quite well and maintaining its rank at #3 as it slowly and steadily approached the $800 million mark domestically.

Tom Holland has certainly had a banner year with Spider-Man: No Way Home and Uncharted, though his future as a box office star remains in question. Although Marvel confirmed a new upcoming trilogy of Spider-Man films, Tom Holland’s involvement remains continually in question. Likewise, his other 2021 efforts – Cherry and Chaos Walking – underperformed, so he will need to nab another big project after his upcoming series The Crowded Room if he wants to remain on top.
